Topical theme of “Phuket or Pattaya” ?! Let’s try to examine these two areas and decide which one is better to visit.
More and more tourists prefer to rest abroad. Taking vacations abroad has a lot of advantages. In addition to the most exotic resorts, people are able to enjoy a really high quality of service, not to mention the mass entertainment, which is waiting for them. In addition, there is one significant advantage, you can go to bask in the foreign beaches at any convenient time of the year. Therefore, each year a large number of travelers go on vacation in Thailand, preferring this country to all others.
Which part of Thailand should I pay attention to?
To date, the most popular tourist destinations each year are Phuket and Pattaya, regardless of the season, is filled with countless tourists who choose to vacation here with family and friends.
Phuket and Pattaya are both quite comfortable resorts, each with their pros and cons.

Major Features of Phuket and Pattaya
If we compare the two locations, the difference between them is quite substantial.
For example, the purity of the sea in Pattaya. Local beaches are not distinguished by their perfection. For this reason, tourists wanting to take a dip in the crystal clear water are sent by ferry to an island, which is 30 minutes from the city.
I note that in recent years the central beach of the city has changed a lot and sometimes the sea water is crystal clear.

Koh Larn Island
Fortunately, in Phuket, there are no issues with the beaches. However, there are strong waves at a certain period of the year, and there is an issue with public transport.
Karon Beach Phuket
In Pattaya, there is plenty entertainment in the city for tourists, with a lot of entertainment facilities. While in Phuket, entertainment is located in different parts of the island, and therefore it is more difficult to move without your own transport.
Silver Lake in Pattaya
Holidays in Phuket focus on tourists who want to enjoy the beauty of nature and the beach, instead of street entertainment. There are a large number of places to fulfill this requirement.

The island has many diving experiences, which is different in comparison to Pattaya, where there are not as experiences.
There is active nightlife on both resorts, which does not stop. However, Pattaya is regarded more as the go-to place for this.

Walking Street in Pattaya
To summarize, we can say that the resort of choice is more or less down to personal preference. Despite a lot of differences, tourists from Pattaya and Phuket are always positive about their holiday.
If you want a beach holiday, diving and clear sea within walking distance, then areas in Phuket Kata, Karon would be are suitable.
If you want an active holiday, with entertainment, both day and night and do not dislike constant action, then you definitely belong in Pattaya.
It would be interesting to hear the views of the readers on this issue and what you chose. 🙂
