Naklua/North Pattaya

Posted in Districts of Pattaya on 15 March 2016

North Pattaya – This area stretches from Naklua and North Pattaya Roads which starts near the center of Pattaya leading up to the Sukhumvit Road ending at Banglamung. Naklua means salt fields as this area was originally salt flats and a fishing village before tourism took over.

For Whom:

  • Ideal for those who want to be relatively close to the city but in a more relaxed location and with easy access to transport links.
  • For those wanting to spend the winter months in Pattaya. This area has a variety of public transport and is located close to shops, markets and beaches so that you don’t need your own transport. 
  • For those looking at future investment. This year 2016, the owners of the famous Terminal 21 in Bangkok decided to build the biggest shopping mall in Pattaya in this area. This will take about 3 years to complete and as a result the area will a powerful boost in its further development.

Beach: The beaches in the Wongamat area is considered to be one of the cleanest in Pattaya. The beaches are easy to get to as is the smaller beach at Banglamung.

Sights: In this area there are several temples with the most famous being the Temple of Truth which is built completely of wood. This is a private project dedicated to the unification of different religions. There is an enterance fee but the experience is well worth the money. In Banglamung you will find a traditional Thai temple with many statues as well as Chinese temple as this area is popular with Chinese. At the end of Naklua Road by the beach is a small playground which is very popular at weekends. Another attraction is the remains of the old fishing village with old wooden huts. Out on the Sukhumvit Road you will find Mini Siam.

Supermarkets/Markets: This area is home to many mini-marts, small shops selling fruit, meals and pharmacies. There is also a large Tesco Lotus. Closer to Pattaya there is a good selection of places to shop but there are only a few markets in this area. At the end of Naklua there is the famous fish market which is also popular with tourists. Fruit and vegetables are also available plus tents where you can cook your purchases. Apart from seafood there area great selection of meats, fruits, vegetables, and a range of ready cooked foods. There are also stalls with clothes and household items. There is also a smaller market in Soi Potisan. For those that wish to shop in a little more comfort there is Tesco Lotus, Makro and Best Supermarket all offering European products and located close to the Dolphin roundabout. Further out there clothing and homeware can be purchased at the Outlet Mall near to the Cholchan hotel.

Restaurants: There is not a great choice of water front restaurants in this area, however there is the much pulicised Silver Lining at the Zire condominium. There is also a good beach cafe "Serf and Terf" at the end of Soi 16. Other restaurants are located in hotels such as the Pullman. Further inland there is dozens of cafes and restaurants to choose from. These are dominated by German and Russian cuisine as many people from these countries holiday or settle in this area, but other restaurants such as Japanese and Chinese are easy to find. At the beginning of Naklua is La Baguette which for several years now has held the title of the best confrectionery in Pattaya. Close by is a restaurant called La Ferme which is owned by the same people. At the end of the street you will find one of the most famous restaurants in Pattaya called Mun Aroy which is well renowned for Thai cuisine and seafood dishes. Also in this area are many smaller places with homemade cakes.

Sport: In this area a lot of the condominiums and hotels have their own gyms. However there are also separate professional fitness centres in the area such as Tony’s Gym which is open 24 hours a day

Public Transport: The Songteo or Baht Bus run from Naklua from 5 am until very late at night to the town center. There is also a route from the Dolphin roundabout to the Sukhumvit Road. At the far end of Naklua Road it is also possible to get a Baht Bus that will take you to Sriracha for about 30-40 Baht.

The Property: This is an area that is quickly gaining in popularity as the price per square meter is less than the town center and the adjacent Wongamat area. With the introduction of Terminal 21 to the area we can expect popularity to increase among both Thais and tourists who will come to Pattaya for weekends and holidays. This will also have an effect on prices too.

  • Summary:
  • Advantages – Developed infrastructure, an area for those who have settled in Pattaya on a long term basis. The area has excellent prospects for development and prices are reasonable when compared to nearby areas.
  • Disadvantages - Not always direct access to the beach and involves a short walk. Also care should be taken when selecting a property as the area is quite densley populated with some noise.
