Pattaya Beach, Thailand has a worldwide reputation of seediness and depravity. As one commenter wrote, a 'Sodom and Gomorrah' on the sea!

I, on the other hand, found the just opposite!

While, yes, there are 'working girls' around the city and the beach is FAR from the nicest in Thailand, the city has a wide variety of entertainment for ALL ages. Multiple water parks, decent beaches in nearby Nakluea and Jomtien, and outdoorsy stuff. aIt's also easy to get around walking or using the ubiquitous Songtaews. Lastly, accommodations and eating out are an excellent 'value' with reasonable prices.

Definitely worth a visit for a couple of nights to see Thailand's 'Las Vegas by the sea'.
