Districts of Pattaya Thailand
The side of Pattaya Thailand adjacent to the coast consists of five sub-districts, each of which gets its name from a beach section or seaboard cliff. At the center of Pattaya Thailand are the three principle sub-districts i.e. North Pattaya, South Pattaya and Central Pattaya Thailand; they are part of the main Baht Bus route, which means you can get to most tourist attractions from them in around 5 minutes. These three districts together are regarded as something of a downtown area. Flaking these are two further sub-districts: Buddha Hill and Naklua.
