Driving in Pattaya

The driving conditions are far better than in neighbouring countries, but still be wary. You may still want to practice driving defensively in and around Pattaya. Along with their being a variety of things to do in Pattaya, outside of Pattaya there is just as much so you will definitely want to rent a car to explore this exciting part of Thailand.

Parking in downtown Pattaya can be challenging, especially on weekends and during the weekday evenings. Always, check if your hotel includes off-street parking as this will be a major advantage.

You can get free parking at major supermarkets and low price parking is available near major shopping areas.

It is mandatory to carry both your passport and Driver’s license wherever you drive in Pattaya.
