|Welcome to Pattaya, named after the strong winds which come from the South West at the beginning of every rainy season. Pattaya, up until 40 years ago was just a sleepy fishing village, the Vietnam war changed this. America sent soldiers to build the air base at U Tapao (40km sout of Pattaya) and many of these took to spending their leisure time and money in Pattaya. Today Pattaya is Thailand's premier beach resort and attracts annually more than a million tourists from all over the world. Pattaya provides high standard hotels, restaurants, sports, entertainment and shopping facilities. The resort is Thailand's most important diving center and the east coast is also a paradise for golfers and an ideal place to learn kiteboarding.
Our center is situated at the Jomtien Beach at the Blue Lagoon Sports Club - around the headland from Pattaya Beach. We will be holding a free BBQ every week.
how to get there: After the Right turn of Sukhumvit follow the Soi (street) all the way till you see the sign for Blue Wave then turn RIght into the Real Estate (Baan Dhewaran), where the guard will will give you a pass and open the gate for you.
