Savor the Nightlife
Pattaya’s nightlife is more than neon lights and loud music. Discover places with an elegant atmosphere for families and couples to enjoy delicious drinks and scrumptious food. If you are on the hunt for a dining experience that combines sophistication, first-class service, and contemporary Asian cuisine, head to Zila Street Bistro & Bar in a 5-star beach resort in Na Jomtien, Chonburi.

Witness Unrivaled Entertainment
Have a splendid evening filled with spectacular costumes and live musical and dance performances at the Alcazar Cabaret Show or Tiffany Cabaret Show.

Get a glimpse into the authentic Thai way of life with a visit to Pattaya’s top cultural attractions. The Sanctuary of Truth is a temple and museum intricately carved from wood, highlighting traditional Thai architectural details.
