Pattaya City is undoubtedly one of the liveliest and most vibrant cities in the world, with a broad range of attractions for both the young and the old. While it has developed a reputation as a “wild” site for fun-loving tourists, in recent years it has tried to moderate this and position itself as a more ‘family-friendly’ destination. Here are some of the attractions in Pattaya that the whole family can enjoy.

1. Tiffany’s Ladyboy Cabaret Show is the first cabaret show in Southeast Asia performed exclusively by transvestites. Starting in 1974 with
only three performers, the Tiffany’s show cast has since grown to more than 100 performers adorned in elaborate costumes performing in the company’s own 1,000-seat theater. With any raunchiness toned down, the show is now deemed safe for all ages and encompasses a wide range of styles ranging from a history of Siam told through dance to Broadway musicals and even a Bollywood-style number.

2. The Ripley’s Believe It or Not museum features over 300 exhibits from the collection of Robert Ripley, the creator of the internationally-famed books about world oddities. Located at the third floor of the Royal Garden Plaza, the museum has ten galleries featuring all manner of strange and shocking exhibits, such as genuine human shrunken heads and a mask made entirely of human skin, as well as more benign curiosities such as a model of the Titanic made from more than a million matchsticks.

3. The Alangkarn Theater is a must for tourists wanting to see the hottest cultural shows in Pattaya City. The 2,000-seat theater is adorned with modern Thai décor and features the 70 meter long Hexa Stage which has a host of state-of-the-art facilities such as a gigantic movie screen and high-tech light and sound systems that include digital synchronized pyrotechnics as well as multi-colored laser animation. And viewers can treat themselves to delicious local and international cuisine at the theater restaurant before or after the show or go shopping for souvenirs in the Cultural Rostrum, which features a wide variety of traditional handicrafts.

4. The Marine Science Aquarium and Museum of the Bang Sen Institute of Marine Science is the ideal educational destination for visitors wanting to learn more about local marine life. Designed to educate visitors about marine life and the marine environment, the Marine Science Aquarium features a large collection of marine life, including crustaceans, fish and vegetation. And the museum is conveniently located near the Bangsaen Beach, one of Pattaya’s most laid-back and affordable beaches.

5. Mini Siam in Pattaya City is one of the world’s most unique attractions – a park that features over a hundred miniature replicas of famous sites worldwide. Divided into two sites – Mini Siam and Mini Europe – you can not only see such familiar attractions as the Statue of Liberty and the Eiffel Tower, but also famous structures from Thai history, including the Temple of the Emerald Buddha and Sukhotai’s Wat Mahathat to more modern creations like the Hualamphong Train Station and the Rama IX suspension-cable bridge.
