Medical supply, contact with Europeans, the availability of low-priced imported goods and European, Asian and American food are just a few reasons that speak for Pattaya.
A good medical care is important! I can not emphasize clearly enough. Health is the most precious commodity. In Pattaya there are a plethora of doctors, clinics and hospitals. Again, to some extent everywhere English is spoken. There are even clinics and doctors where you can muddle through with German and English. What you need is a health insurance repays however. For since Thailand is rather different than Germany and Europe. Because in an emergency (accident, ect.) Is checked only if the patient's solvency and then traded.
To keep the contact with home people is more important for most long term. Because of cultural differences to the Thais are still very large. In a holiday that is very exciting. In everyday life, however, it can be very stressful. People live in Pattaya from almost all countries. Which is also a very wide range of food and imported goods in Pattaya there. I myself love Thai food over all. But you can not imagine how delicious can a sandwich after weeks or months of abstinence. In Pattaya, there is no problem. There is even German butchers and bakers.
These are all reasons that make Pattaya a favorite for dropouts. Then there are the seemingly unerscöepflichen possibilities that this city offers. A unique nightlife. The famous ladies. Sights and attractions. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week is always something going on here. And for the offer to look for something more serene outside the districts and Villages the perfect alternative. Many beautiful islands are also nearby. Koh Lan, Koh Samet and Koh Chang are just a short walk from Pattaya.
