Almost every journey begins with finding suitable accommodation. Everyone wants to relax in comfortable conditions after long walks or relax on the beach. In our article, we will tell about housing in Pattaya and what points you should pay attention to when choosing it.
As Pattaya is one of the most popular resorts in Thailand, visited by dozen thousands of tourists from different countries, there is a large selection of accommodation with different prices. Numerous hotels in Pattaya, condominiums, houses and villas offer their services. Prices for housing in Pattaya depend on several factors.
Firstly, prices for housing rental can be higher because of real estate agencies extra charge. If you want to save your money, you can search for options directly from the owner and agree with him about a more affordable price. At online booking services, pay attention to who posted the ad: owner or agent.
Another important price factor is the distance from the sea: the closer the housing to the coastline, the higher the price. Although the beaches of Pattaya are not the cleanest in the Kingdom and for a beach holiday it is better to go to the neighboring islands, many tourists want to enjoy the beautiful view of the coast from their window.
The season also affects prices greatly. During the tourist season (from October to February), prices for apartments and other tourist services will be much higher.
The cost of housing may depend on the rental term. With a longer rental period (from six months or longer), the price may decrease, but it may include utility bills.
Also, the price directly depends on the location and the surrounding infrastructure.
When choosing where to stay in Pattaya, keep in mind a few facts about the resort. The central district of the city does not fall silent even for a minute and there is constant movement of crowds of tourists. If you plan to stay for a long period, pay attention to the availability of shops, schools, cafes and transport nearby.
