Which are the best rooftops in Pattaya? This complete guide will help you find the best rooftop bars in Pattaya. Located about 100km south east of Bangkok, on the Gulf of Thailand, Pattaya is quite easy to reach. Ocean side location means it offers some very nice beaches, but it also feels like a city, with high rise buildings and rooftop bars perched on floor 30-40. So one can expect to get some great views over the ocean and the Pattaya Bay.
The climate is tropical, so warm year round, meaning rooftop terraces staying open year round. But the wet season between May and October can be really wet, so the best time to enjoy the al fresco drinking and dining spots is between Novembere to April. Then Pattaya offers rooftop bars both for daytime lounging in the sun, and towards the night to catch some amazing ocean sunsets.
Pattaya used to be a small fishing village, but after the Vietnam War it started to gain a reputation among foreign tourists and is now a large and famous tourist destination. The mix of beaches and city night life is a great selling point, promising both lazy days and fun late night vibes. This has also led to Pattaya being a notorious sex-destination. But the city has a lot more to offer, with beautiful enviroments and many fine golf courses in the close by area.
