Pattaya is one of the most famous destinations worldwide. Located in Bang Lamung district, Chonburi Province, it is 140 km far from Bangkok in the east side of Thailand Bay. Pattaya city is divided into 4 parts, North Pattaya, Centre Pattaya, South Pattaya, and Jomtien Beach. More than 90% of the income of Pattaya City comes from tourism. Each year, more than 300 films were shot here and Pattaya officials are launching a new effort to win United Nations designation as a “city of the film”.The history of Pattaya took place before the fall of the former capital to Burmese invaders in 1767. Phraya Tak (later King Taksin) and his army marched from Ayutthaya to Chanthaburi and rested at the area called “Tap Phraya, which means the "army of the Phraya" and later became Pattaya.The origin of worldwide popularity of Pattaya began in 1767 when the US army that joined Vietnam War had their base in Nakhon Ratchasima Province and took turns to visit the beauty of Thai beaches. Pattaya is near Bangkok and conveniently reached. Therefore, Pattaya became more and more popular for local and foreigners until today.
