Pattaya must impress travelers with its beautiful beaches and vibrant nightlife. Beyond this, Pattaya offers much more than spectacular sightseeing for a day trip. Let’s see where to go for a day trip in Pattaya with BestPrice Travel.

Located on the east coast of the Gulf of Thailand and around 100 km southeast of Bangkok, Pattaya is a popular tourist destination that attracts millions of travelers every year. Pattaya features the tropical climate divided into two distinct seasons: the dry season (from December to the next February) and the rainy season (from March to November).

Pattaya boasts so many sightseeing attractions that it will be one busy day to see it all. If you are a beach lover, Pattaya should be a wonderland for stunning beaches like Pattaya Beach, Jomtien Beach or Koh Larn, a coral island to enjoy the sandy beach and do snorkeling. For those in search of local experience, it is great to visit the floating village and markets in Pattaya. In case you are a Buddhist lover, head for the Sanctuary of Truth or Khao Chi Chan. If you are confused about which places to go in one day in Pattaya, see the following list of must-visit attractions that every traveler should call on for the first time in Pattaya.

1. Koh Larn

Koh Larn is a small group of beautiful islands off the coast of Pattaya so that you can get away from the bustling beaches in the central city of Pattaya. Here, you can go for a half-day or full-day trip to enjoy the tropical sandy beach, crystal clear waters, tranquil surroundings, and extensive coral.

In addition to mesmerizing beach attractions, Koh Larn is an attractive spot for all kinds of beach activities. On your day trip, you can enjoy some adventurous activities like parasailing, water-skiing, jet-skiing or take a journey to deep-sea life by snorkeling, diving off the nearby islands. Go to Koh Krok and Koh Sak islands, since there is plenty of coral and undersea creatures for tourist to discover.

2. Khao Chi Chan

Khao Chi Chan is a must-visit attraction for Buddhist lovers on a day trip in Pattaya. The 109-meter-tall and 70-meter-wide Buddha image is engraved into the rock of Khao Chi Chan with a view to commemorating the Golden Jubilee of His Majesty the King of Thailand. The image of Buddha sat cross-legged with one hand resting on his knee and the other in his lap has become the most remarkable highlight in Khao Chi Chan. Also, you can visit the beautiful surroundings and shopping areas with a variety of souvenirs, snacks, and drinks for one day trip to Pattaya.
