near future as you will not get a real understanding of what
the Walking Street area is about in the day-time photos.
If you do get to Pattaya and head straight
to Walking Street before trying some of the other areas don't
get stuck in Walking street. some people do this and it is a
shame. Wall king Street is a good area for night life but it is
not the whole of Pattaya. Make the effort to explore the other
areas that the city has to offer. You may find that you prefer
these areas. Walking Street is great but it has its
This walking tour of Walking Street starts
at the northern end of Walking Street where it meets Beach
Road. It then follows Walking Street to the end of it. It then
