Preparing your trip to Pattaya: advices & hints - things to do and to obey

Pattaya Beach 1. The city of Pattaya welcomes its guests all the year round. The hottest period of the year is considered to be from April till May. The rainiest months of the year in Pattaya are considered to be September and October. Heavy rains are probable in this period almost every day. However they fall normally at night and are rather intermittent so the rains will not badly impact vacation plans.
2. The main city transport is songthaews which are small open vans following certain routes like common buses. A trip should be paid directly to a driver of a van. Setting off to a city exploration tour travelers should have enough change.
3. Local restaurants feature rather affordable pricing policy. Thus prudent tourists should not deny their pleasure of visiting some upscale gastronomy establishments of the resort. An average cost of a rich dinner for two in one of the ethnic restaurants will be about 50 Euro.
4. Local markets and private shops welcome bargaining as this is an optimum way to sufficiently reduce a price. Open markets are the best places to hunt some souvenirs, memorable gifts and crafts meanwhile clothes, perfumes and jewelry should be bought in specialized stores and boutiques.
5. Local shops and stores offer a wide choice of fake brand clothes and accessories that is why tourists should be rather attentive and careful as in case of identification of fake items in the airport they will be confiscated. Copyright
6. All the staff should be rewarded with tips. In restaurants and cafes a 5% addition to a total sum of a bill will be quite enough. In restaurants the tips for a waiter may be in coins meanwhile hotel maids, taxi drivers and other staff should be rewarded only with tips in notes. An average amount of tips equals 20 baht.
7. An optimum way to pay for goods and services is the national Thai currency. However local shops and restaurants accept US dollars and Euro as well. But in this case a cost may turn higher. Banks offer a more profitable currency exchange rate. Tourists will find numerous private currency exchange offices in Pattaya.
8. Tourists should follow rules of decorum. One should not speak and laugh in high key in public places. One should address a conversation partner in a calm, quiet voice as excessive excitement will puzzle local folks as in Pattaya such an act is considered to be offensive and disrespectful.
