Question by marie: Is Pattaya worth going to for a first time visit to Thailand?
What about mini siam and mini world? What about that park Ancient City that has the miniature highlights of Thailand, is it worth seeing?
Answer by Geoff M
Pattaya isn’t the nicest of places in Thailand – there are seedy areas and the beach isn’t good. Phuket, Krabi, Phi Phi etc are far better.
It’s worth a visit to Ayutthaya, and there are plenty of sights within Bangkok itself, such as the reclining Buddha and the Grand Palace (next door to each other).
Be brave and try the street food. As long as you can see it’s fairly clean, and the food is hot, you should be ok. Don’t drink the tap water; don’t even wash your toothrbush in it. Enjoy.
