This is the most southerly part of Pattaya with a long beach front and continues up until the Sukhumvit Road. This area has seen more new developments than any other of the areas that make up Pattaya.

For Whom:

  • This area is ideal for those looking for stylish, comfortable accommodation but at the lower end of the price range. In Jomtien you will find a number of “Resort” style condominiums all with large swimming pools, landscaped areas plus good infrastructure.
  • Jomtien also suits those looking for an apartment where they can stay on a long term basis. This area now has a large Russian population due to the many cafes, massage parlors and other Russian for them to socialize with. 
  • This area is also good for those wanting to invest and put their properties up for rent.

Beach: Jomtien beach stretches along for approximately 7 km and this bay is separated from Pattaya beach by Pratumnak Hill. The beach area is quite lively and host a number of sporting events too. However the beach area is quieter and cleaner than that of Pattaya. Also there has been a large amount of renovation work done in the area. Building in Jomtien initially began in the center and to the north. At first Jomtien was very much like the Na Jomtien area of today with a few good hotels, nice beach and generally a quiet area.

Attraction: The area has two small traditional temples and a small park area near the stadium on Soi Chaiapruek. There is also another park with playground and sports facilities at the municipal library . At the corner of Soi Chaiapruek and Sukhumvit Road there is a small mall called “The Village” with a pleasant green area and pond, an ideal place for a walk. There is also a small water park called Pattaya Park which is popular with families. Jomtien also offers easy access to Underwater World up on the Sukhumvit Road and for the more adventurous there is a Bungy Jump. Jomtien has easy access to Central Pattaya and the choice of property is extensive.

For shopping there is a large Tesco Lotus up on Sukhumvit Road, as is the cash and carry Makro. Throughout Jomtien there are a number of Tesco Express stores as well as mini marts. A brand new Foodland supermarket is due in the not too distant future. There are also a number of fresh food markets in the area. One is located on the Jomtien Second Road which sells fresh meat, fish, fruit and vegetables during the day and complete meals in the evening. The second is on Soi Watboon and is a daytime market selling fresh produce. There is an evening market on Soi Chaiapruek. A larger night market can be found on Threprassit Road and is place for both shopping and sight seeing, with clothe stalls as well as food products plus a cafe and playground. On occasions there are also organized events.

Restaurants: Jomtien is home to a large number of cafes and restaurants which includes several of Russian cuisine. There are also more traditional Thai kitchens such as Surf Kitchen which has been in existence for a long time. Along the beach road there are many popular seafood restaurants.

Sport: In Jomtien you will see a number of joggers running along the beachfront. There are also gyms available as is Muay Thai training.

Public Transport: The most common form of transport is the Baht Bus or Songteo which run from 5 am till very late. For the most part they travel up to Soi Chaiapruek, to go further they may require an extra payment. Also you will see plenty of motorbike taxis.

Property: In this area there are many buildings at various stages of construction. These range from those that have yet to start the building process to fully completes developments. There are a variety of styles from the resort style with landscaped gardens and large swimming pools similar to a water park; to the newer high rise building offering great sea views. Prices here are generally lower than in central Pattaya and other beach areas. Apartments here are in great demand by tourists.

  • Summary:
  • Advantages – relatively low prices, wide selection of options, good rental prospects.
  • Disadvantages – developments on Second Road or further are 10-15 minutes away from the beach
