Pattaya Rebranded as a Family and Sports Destination

Explore and Discover its Amazing Attractions

According to Pattaya Today, Pattaya is one of five cities chosen by the government to rebrand Thai tourism. Each of the five designated cities will be rebranded with a theme that correlates with the strengths of the area. Due to high revenues from tourist-related activities, Pattaya’s will be rebranded as “Thailand’s World-Class Sports and Family Destination”.

So, what does this mean? If you have visited Pattaya in the last few months, you’ll realize that there have been more sports competitions happening around the city, especially in the category of water sports. We’ve seen an influx of competitions hosted in Pattaya such as the Jet Ski World Cup, Top of the Gulf Regatta, the LPGA Tour and the Pattaya Marathon.

This rise of sports and recreational events held in the city is equally matched with family-friendly activities. While there are many new attractions to check out, many of the existing attractions have adapted their facilities to cater directly for toddlers, young children and teenagers to enjoy while on vacation in Thailand’s beautiful coastal city.

Know some of the best family-friendly/sports activities that you can do around this interesting city. If you are planning on visiting soon, these are the must-go places to experience to make your holiday truly unforgettable!

Ramayana Water Park


Ramayana Water Park is located within the lush beauty of the Silver Lake area. Being a water park, naturally it’s an ideal place to cool off during a hot day!

They also have the choice between two dedicated and uniquely designed kid’s areas. These attractions provide all day fun under professional supervision with the highest safety standards.
