Pattaya has derived part of its reputation as a tourist destination due to the sex industry and the resulting nightlife, and in many ways the city has become what it is now because of this.
Girls, shows, bar games and competing stereos all combine to raise the ante in one huge party zone from Soi 13 to Soi 16 in South Pattaya

Enjoy Heaven on Earth at Pattaya
Pattaya is the seasoned veteran of Thailand's tourism industry, with nearly 40 years of experience. It started as an R&R retreat for the US military, and by the peak of the Vietnam War it was well-known for late-night revelry. Pattaya offers no apologies for its reputation as Thailand's 'sin city', but it has branched out in recent years to cater for a broad range of visitors. These days, hotels in Pattaya cater for everyone: retired westerners, Japanese businessmen, young honeymooners and Thai families. It's an unlikely mix, and only Pattaya could make it seem so effortless.
Families head to Jomtien Beach, a crescent slice of sand brimming with water sports and beach facilities. It sits apart from the central party zone, and the hotels in this area quiet down earlier. Many family-friendly activities are based in North Pattaya, beginning with Buddhist temples and entertainment parks like Ripley's Believe It or Not. An elephant park, aquarium and weekend night market are also on the list.

Over the past years the type of tourists visiting Pattaya has changed. Many Russian tourists and eastern Europeans are part of the landscape of visitors now. Pattaya is not only a destination for single men from around the world anymore. Russian couples and families are a large part of the tourism scene.
Pattaya has been known for over four decades for its vibrant and wild nightlife and there is no doubt that Pattaya will always make most of its revenue from the nightlife entertainment areas.
