Why Beach road is special ?
Pattaya Beach Road is a mixture of strolling along the beach, shopping, eating and night life. Quite in the north end. Beach Road follows Pattaya Bay. On one side are businesses and the other is Pattaya Beach with a sidewalk for your walking pleasure
Best time to head to beach road is about half hour after the sun drops and the girls have all just arrived to the beach. Beach Road is 3km long but most of the freelancers typically stand between soi’s 7 right down through to walking street Pattaya but can be found along the entire length of the strip. Some of the better looking girls I’ve seen are up to top north end of the road across from the more expensive hotels.
What to explore at Beach road?
There are blue pickup trucks that act like a bus and you can hop on one to travel the length of the road for a measly 10 baht. This is good when it’s super hot but driving a bike down the road and finding parking isn’t difficult either just be careful of the Motorcycle taxi drivers who like to speed down the road so they can get back to their stand and in queue for another job.
The biggest attraction of Beach road is hardly the beach itself nor is it the jet skis or the para-sailing and unless of course your a Russian holiday maker the real attraction is the endless number of cheap freelance prostitutes that line the footpath of beach road. The girls either sit where they can or stand and call out for the attention of potential customers that pass by. The girls can be found there during the day but are in greater numbers during the evenings.
The kind of working girl you find on Beach road though is probably the lowest kind of prostitute there is in Pattaya. Desperate and definitely not of the best quality is a good place for those who like to seek a cheap bargain. Anything you find on Beach road is price negotiable never go for the said price always lower it. Not all girls here can go long time either most are sideline girls that have other commitments.
Hang out long enough on Beach Road and you’ll start to notice one or more interesting things happen. The boyfriend of one of the street walkers hangs around in the background as motivation for the girl. The boyfriend is basically a pimp but rarely has more than the one girl working
How to get to Beach road?
Beach Road starts at the Pattaya North Traffic circle (round about) and goes south all the way to Walking Street. As you drive down the one way street from the round about to walking street the beach will be on your right and to the left will be sois numbered 1 through to 13.

Tips for you
Like most beaches everywhere here too one is exposed to a variety of sights, sounds and smells. Scantly clad beach-goers including many who never venture out in public so undressed, plenty on shops, stalls and kiosks selling most everything, street food is abundant and Pattaya's Beach Road seem to vibrate with life round the clock! I like to sit somewhere along the road/walkway and observe the people and happenings! I find this extremely interesting! Try it out!
