Staying in Jomtien Beach Pattaya

If you are travelling with family to Pattaya there are great accommodation option available in and around Pattaya. Pattaya has undergone massive development in the last decade and you will observe large housing complexes and buildings along the Pattaya to Jomtien beach which is located around 5 km south of Pattaya CBD.

Jomtien offers much calmer and family-friendly accommodation as it is not as congested as Pattaya. You can find serviced apartments for long-term rentals at very nominal rates.  

If you are driving your own car, Jomtien is a great option as you can easily drive to the main shopping centre or any of the tourist beaches. Public transport is quite efficient in and around Pattaya and much regulated. Therefore, if you are coming into Pattaya park your car in the shopping centre behind Hilton and use the vans that cost around one BHAT a trip going around Pattaya CBD. 

Most complexes in Jomtien along the beach have their own private beaches which are quite clean and well maintained. Other accommodations and hotels have easy access to the beach. This area has become quite popular with tourist from Central Asia and Russia as you can also arrange for long term rental in Pattaya at very nominal prices.


We stayed at Beach Gallery Hotel in Jomtien which is very close to the beach and enjoys a very peaceful location and great views from the balcony.  This area is more suited to families looking for quiet neighbourhood and apartment complexes. Corner shops and stores provide basic amenities and you do not have to drive to shopping malls.

Small neighbourhood cafes can make your Thai food under 100 Baht ( $4.5). The famous restaurant "Cabbages and Condoms" has a branch in Jomtien Beach. You will probably need a car to live in this area.

I have been exploring South-East Asia for over twenty years and have visited some of the best destinations in the region. Through my blog, I want to share some interesting travel tips, my experience of driving across Asian destinations and some of the best places to explore in this region. I have undertaken hundreds of road trips, across Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Australia. Most of the information in this blog comes through my own road trips and adventures in the exotic locations I have visited. 

I have, in the past followed in Anthony Bourdain's footsteps and visited most of the restaurants his team explored in their shows. Join in on my adventures and follow my trails on Instagram & Facebook Page.
