Pattaya is certainly a vibrant place throughout the year with plenty on offer to cater for all tastes and every budget. Pattaya is a city that is gradually evolving and it is easy to forget some of the fantastic things that are on offer, simply because there are so many things to do! So when you’re pondering how to wile away the hours on Sunday afternoon it is worth considering these 5 suggestions.
What could be better on a Sunday afternoon than a traditional Sunday roast? The Sportsman on Soi 13, Pattaya Beach Road offers arguably the best roast around. The carvery is served between 12.30pm and 8.30pm and offers a staggering selection of 5 joints of meat, naturally with all the accompanying vegetables and sauces and is served in a friendly, welcoming environment with well trained, experienced employees.
2. Drive Out to Silverlake
I think it’s fair to say that we all enjoy some time away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
A short drive to the south of Pattaya brings you Silverlake vineyard. The area is extremely picturesque with an excellent Italian restaurant which not surprisingly serves the local wine along with a wide selection of imported wines and other beverages. This really is an excellent way to spend a relaxing afternoon, but beware that it can be very hot as there is little shade.
3. Walk along Jomtien Beach
Jomtien Beach is one of the better beaches in the Pattaya. A pleasant stroll along the beachfront can be enjoyed along the well maintained and shaded footpath. The beachfront is quieter than that in Pattaya and is an excellent place to enjoy a romantic sunset or to simply relax with your thoughts.
4. Sanctuary of Truth
The Sanctuary of Truth located on Soi 12, Naklua Road is an ornate wooden structure that aims to portray ancient cultures and values. The Sanctuary is situated on more than 2 rai of land. Although the structure appears to be dating back to ancient time work actually started in 1981 and is an ongoing process due to be completed in 2025. This really is an superb way to spend a Sunday afternoon with the family.
5. Nong Nooch Tropical Botanical Garden
Nong Nooch Tropical Gardens are located close to Bang Saray and as the name suggests is a beautiful botanical garden that has won numerous awards and has been recognised by the Chelsea Flower Show. The gardens themselves are exceptionally well maintained but there are also a number of animals to been seen along with a selection of shops and restaurants making this another excellent place to visit for an all round family, Sunday afternoon.
