Transportation
Local public transportation is by bus. Any destination in Thailand can be reached via direct line services, often departing several times each day. Service to Bangkok is available at 30 minute intervals from 6.00 am till 9 pm. Taxi or limousine service to Bangkok airport is available for 1200 - 1500 Baht (US$ 30 - 35), and mini-bus services are a vailable for around 300 Baht (US$ 7).
Public transport in Jomtien Pattaya is by 'Baht bus' (from 10 - 20 Baht), or by 'motor bike taxi'. For outings, a car+driver can be hired for around 1500 Baht for 8 hours.

 

Education
There are several International Schools and one International University. The most prestiguous schools are Assumption College in Sri Racha, and The International School of the Regents on the outskirts of Banglamung district, on the road to Rayong. Several International Primary Schools are in the city itself, such as 'BEST'. Students usually travel by school bus. The curriculum is mostly based on British & Australian standards. Asia University is close to ISR, and is specialised in MBA and related subjects.
Two other near-by universities offer courses in Thai only.

Utilities
In an area of such vital importance for the national economy there is a good infrastructure of public services and public utilities. The banking sector is heavily regulated by the Thai National Bank. Money exchange rates differ very little from bank to bank, and this service is usually available till 8 pm. ATMs are everywhere, open 24 hours, and most of them accept major credit & charge cards. Bank offices are open on weekdays from 8.30 till 3.30, but their offices in Tesco-Lotus are open later, and also on Saturdays. Banks are always closed on the many 'bank holidays'. Public utilities are easily available but often require many documents & signatures to open an account. An easy way-out for telephone service is to buy a cheap mobile phone with instant access. Internet services are available from a variety of service providers. Connections are at 56KB speed, but 128KB is also available. All telephone cables (no fiber optics) are above ground, and this sometimes causes interruptions, especially in the monsoon season.

Health
We all hope we do not need them, but they have to be there, just in case! Jomtien Pattaya counts 3 private hospitals, of which the 250 beds Bangkok-Pattaya Hospital is the largest and best equipped. The hospital has a large staff of multi-ligual doctors, often educated in the USA or Australia. The nursing staff all speak English. This hospital is also linked to the much larger Bangkok General Hospital in Bangkok, which provides even more access to excellent doctors and facilities, just in case...

Diving

There are many regular boat services available, and all types of boats for rent.
The area also boasts several marinas and Yacht Clubs. Those preferring terra firma can fish from the piers, or watch the many fishing boats at night with their bright lights attracting squid, or visit one of the many close-by fishing villages. A real must!

Location

Beaches
The prime attraction of Jomtien Pattaya are its beaches. They are everywhere, always with enough parasols to avoid sunburn, and mostly enjoying a gentle sea breeze.

These features make this area so popular with tourists including, of course, Thais from near-by areas like Bangkok. Drinks & food are available everywhere, and seafood often on the menu. Beachfront areas have an endless array of restaurants & foodstalls. Beach vendors will sell you almost anything. Food, icecream, clothing, watches, sunglasses, lottery tickets, manicure & massage, and so on

Bazar

The city changes its character completely at dusk, when hundreds of stalls suddenly arise on the sidewalks in the main shopping & tourist areas.

They offer an enormous variety of goods at low prices if you do your bargaining well! Compare prices from one stall with the other. Gold & Jewelry shops are everywhere.

Thai Gold shops (always with a red facade) offer items - mostly chains & bracelets - in 24 karat gold only, and charge the daily gold price plus a few hundred Baht for making the item. You can always exchange the items, as they are often used by Thais as a 'second bank account'. More risk-taking is involved with buying gems. Rubies & saffires are delved in Thailand, but it is safe to buy only from reputable shops, as copies are on sale in the s
