Here, we present to you some of the romantic tourist attractions you can visit with your partner during your honeymoon in Pattaya.
1. Coral Island
Coral Island or Koh Lann is the closest island from Pattaya. If you and your partner want to enjoy a day amidst the serene and beautiful beaches of Coral Island, hop on to a ferry service and you will reach the island in 45 minutes. Those who enjoy peace and quiet will find it on the Coral Island. On the other hand, the island offers great opportunities to try out some water sports like scuba diving, parasailing, water skiing, jet skiing, etc. One of the best things to do here is to take a trip on the glass-bottomed boat to take a look at the widespread coral under its crystal clear waters.
2. Nong Nooch Village
When you are newly married, you would want to spend the maximum amount of time you can in the company of your partner exploring beautiful places, Nong Nooch Village is the perfect place for this. You can walk hand in hand and stroll around this beautiful park at your own pace while you take in the different tropical flowers and plants. This botanical garden is divided into several sections, and you would get to see French Garden, Stonehenge Garden, European Garden, Orchid & Bromeliad Display Garden, Cactus & Succulent Garden, Flower Valley, Butterfly Hill, etc. You must also not miss the Thai cultural and elephant shows that are conducted at this village every day.
3. Jomtien Beach
After the busy and general chaos of the wedding, all you want to do is take a deep breath, relax and do nothing. Jomtien Beach gives you just this! Replete with white sand beaches, palm trees, and blue waters, this is your ideal place to sunbathe, take a nap or even read a book while enjoying the beautiful view around.

With so much peace, warmth and serenity on this beach, Jomtien Beach is the best place to begin your honeymoon in Pattaya.
4. Mini Siam
When you have spent days on the beaches of Pattaya, it is the best time to take some time and explore the rest of the city. The best place to start with would be Mini Siam where you get to see the entire world in one place. Mini Siam is where you would find the miniature replicas of not only the popular sites of Thailand but from all over the world. The park has two zones, Mini Siam and Mini Europe divided by a miniature river. Here you get to become Gulliver and see the miniature versions of Eiffel Tower, The Statue of Liberty, Temple of the Emerald Buddha, Singapore’s Merlion Statue, London’s Tower Bridge, Sydney Opera House and many more world famous sites. Apart from this, the well-manicured lawns and water displays around the park make it a great place to walk around with your partner.
5. Floating Market
One morning during your honeymoon in Pattaya, chuck the breakfast at the hotel and head to Pattaya’s Floating Market for an authentic Thai breakfast and some cultural fun. Also known as the Four Regions Floating Market, this is said to be the largest man-made floating market in the entire world. Here you will find 114 vendors selling their goods in little water boats. While this is a great place to try some delicious local snacks, fruits and desserts, you will also find vendors selling authentic Thai handicrafts, clothes, etc. which you can take back as a souvenir. Apart from shopping and eating, you can also enjoy great cultural shows and take part in adventurous activities at the Pattaya Floating Market.
6. Thai Cooking Class
Although not exactly a place to visit, taking a cooking class is definitely one of the romantic things you can do on your honeymoon in Pattaya. You get to learn authentic Thai dishes and desserts made with fresh ingredients under the guidance of experienced teachers. Thai cooking classes are available everywhere in Pattaya and are easy to find too. Most hotels and resorts offer cooking classes for their guests, and so you would not have to go very far.

While you would definitely enjoy the peace and quiet the beaches of Pattaya offer, there is a chance that you may get bored soon and want to have a loud party. If so, Pattaya would not disappoint you. All you need to do is head to Walking Street. Located in South Pattaya, this street which remains deserted during the day becomes alive at night with bars, restaurants, nightclubs, hawkers, street shops, etc. Even if you spend every night of your stay here, there would be something new to see, experience and do every time. The nightclubs with thumping music, the street shops with neon lights, the huge malls with every popular brand, the hawkers selling local food and the bars serving chilled beers will make your visit to the Walking Street truly worthwhile.
8. Tiffany’s Cabaret Show
Other than visiting the Walking Street, another place you must definitely visit during the evening is Tiffany’s Cabaret Show. This cabaret showcases the talent of the transvestite and transgender community of Thailand. Even if you are busy wondering how can men transform into these gorgeous women performing in front of you, do take the time to check out the beautiful stage design, amazing choreography, stunning costumes, special lighting and effects, great music and the splendid performances by the artists. The cabaret show is a class apart and something you should not miss. After the performance, do take pictures with the artists as a keepsake.
