Getting married in Pattaya

Pattaya, a charming coastal city in Thailand, is renowned for its stunning beaches, vibrant nightlife, and diverse attractions. Situated on the east coast of the Gulf of Thailand, approximately 100 kilometers southeast of Bangkok, Pattaya offers a blend of thrilling activities and rich cultural experiences. The city has evolved from a fishing village into a popular beach resort, attracting visitors with its water sports such as windsurfing, water skiing, and snorkeling, alongside more adventurous pursuits like bungee jumping, skydiving, and Muay Thai.


The Western flavor and location of Pattaya make it a very convenient destination for wedding arrangements. With its numerous venues, from banquet halls to any of the small islands off the coast, there is no shortage of options for the kind of wedding you can hold in Pattaya.

As for the reception, Pattaya has a range of entertainment destinations, family-oriented facilities, as well as bars and restaurants that serve exquisite seafood. The city is also well-known for its amazing nightlife scene, especially the Walking Street, a one-kilometer-long pedestrian-only street filled with live music and wild parties that burst to life when the sun goes down.

If you’re looking for something more cultural, exploring Pattaya’s Floating Market, also known as the “Four Regions Floating Market,” is another fun activity your wedding party can do. With more than 300 shops, you’re sure to find a souvenir or two to take back home or gift your loved one with.


From the coast to the mainland, you’ll be spoiled for choice for things to do on your destination wedding in Pattaya:

Walking Street: A one-kilometer-long street filled with bars, restaurants, live music, and a vibrant nightlife scene that comes to life when the sun goes down.

Beaches & Waterparks: The best places to cool down and have fun are either at beaches or waterparks. Fortunately for you, Pattaya is brimming with both. With beaches like Pattaya and Jomtien Beach offering fun activities like parasailing and kite surfing to waterparks with dozens of rides catering to guests of all ages, there is no shortage of the fun you’ll have before, during, and after the wedding celebration.

Coral Island: Offering a myriad of water sports like banana boating, kayaking in glass boats, and jet skiing, Coral Island, also known locally as Koh Larn, is only a 7-kilometer trip by boat from Pattaya. Just head over to Bali Hai Pier (which is only a few minutes away from Walking Street) and purchase your ticket to gorgeous clear blue waters and exotic sea life.

Four Regions Floating Market: Established in 2008, the Pattaya Floating Market is a popular tourist destination that showcases the stunning Thai riverbank community and its traditional way of life. Local goods from Thailand’s four main regions are also on display at incredibly reasonable prices.

Ripley’s Believe It or Not! With over 300 exhibits in Pattaya in its main odditorium and several separate attractions in its franchise, it’s no wonder why Ripley’s Believe It or Not! has become a popular attraction for families looking to experience and learn something new. Whether it is butting heads together to escape Ripley’s Haunted House Adventure: Where Nightmares Come To Life or mustering up the courage to make it through The Horror Hospital, a visit to Ripley’s Believe it or Not! will surely leave you with nothing but laughter and memories.

The best time to be in Pattaya is between November to February when the weather is just about perfect to hold a wedding. A little later between March to June is Thailand’s summer season, and it might be too hot for some. You can expect windy weather and thunderstorms from July to October which is the rainy season, so it is important to time it all just right if you are planning an outdoor ceremony.
