When you stay in the Pattaya area for prolonged holiday periods, it is great to get around. See some of the sights and sounds that make the Eastern Seaboard one of the most fun and welcoming places to visit in Thailand. There are many regions and areas within a short drive of Pattaya that are worth discovering. Ban Amphur and Bangsaray are just two of them.
Getting away from Pattaya
Although Pattaya is a fun-filled town, it only makes sense to get away from the cacophony of bars and nightlife, even only if for a few hours. Areas surrounding Pattaya that you need to see Lake Mabprachan, Bang Saen, Ban Amphur, Jomtien, and Bangsaray.
If you want to immerse yourself in some refreshing Thai countryside with some beautiful beaches and quality tourist attractions, we recommend Bangsaray and Ban Amphur.
Although Ban Amphur is more the quieter place of the two, it is still a lovely place to visit and home to a few beaches and some cool Pattaya restaurants. You will find the stylish Ocean Marina Yacht Club in Ban Amphur and the beautiful and popular Ban Amphur Beach nearby. As with any beaches along the Gulf to the east of Pattaya, they are much cleaner and quieter than in the city.
If you are looking for a spot of quality Thai seafood with sea views, restaurants such as Preecha Seafood and Je Tium Seafood are highly recommended and nearby.
Ban Amphur is also home to one of the best golf courses in the Pattaya region – Phoenix Gold Golf & Country Club. It is perhaps the third-best golf club in the region after Siam Country Club and Laem Chabang.
Ban Amphur is a peaceful place and just a 10-minute drive along Sukhumvit Road to the east of Pattaya City.
