Pattaya is one of the main resorts in Thailand, which offers its guests a lot of entertainments. However, this paradise has one drawback - the lack of spacious beaches with clear water. But even this fact will not spoil your vacation in Pattaya because you can have an ideal beach holiday on the nearby islands. Ferries in Pattaya will help you to get to any island without much effort. A convenient ferry schedule will allow you to choose the right time for a trip in both directions.
In Pattaya ferries leave from the Bali-Hai pier, which is located near the famous Walking Street. Speedboats of private transport companies also regularly depart from this pier. You can buy a ticket and check the ferry schedule at the ticket office at the pier or directly on the ferry before boarding. For those who travel by ferry for the first time, it will be interesting to admire the beautiful views of the neighboring islands on the way. It is also a good opportunity to make new friends among fellow travelers and to find a company for a holiday on the island. If you are going to travel by ferry, you should definitely wear a hat and use sunscreen as the sun's rays reflected from the water have a stronger effect on the skin.
