Phatthaya - description of the city:

Phatthaya is the famous city that stretches along the eastern coast of the Gulf of Thailand in the south-east of the Kingdom of Thailand. To Bangkok about 147km to the south-east. Phatthaya is the most famous beach resort in the country and one of the largest resorts in the world.

The hallmark of Pattaya is a golf, scuba diving, and all necessary conditions for sport.

The city`s history dates back to the 13th century, when King Narai the Great defeated the military camp, where supporters gathered and formed an army to fight against Burmese invaders. Is believed that he gave the name of the village. Phatthaya means the southwest wind blowing at the beginning of rainy season.

Due to the natural protection of high cliffs, mountains and islands in Phatthaya bay has always been safe for coastal fishing, where fishermen are engaged in fishing for generations. The main impetus for the development of Phatthaya as a city has given the war in Vietnam. At that time around Phatthaya was based naval and air base of the United States and American military hospital. On 29 July 1959 year some american militaries rented a house on the beach and stayed there for about a week. They liked the fresh air, clean sea, and hospitality of the locals. After returning to base, they recommended a good place to colleagues. So there was a tradition of the US militaries to go for a vacation in Phatthaya. And immediately began to appear bars, restaurants, small hotels and places of entreatments, and in 1961 a group of American businessmen decided to major investments in order to develop Phatthaya as a resort.
