Pratamnak is one of the most prestigious areas of Pattaya in terms of property and is home to some exclusive beachfront villas, the best hotels and a wide selection of condominiums. The is one of the best locations if you are looking for some peace and quiet but at the same time, you don’t want to be too far away from the city or Jomtien. Both of these centres are only about 5 minutes’ drive away by car, motorbike or taxi. There is little surprise therefore that this is one of the first places that people look for a condo for sale in Pattaya.
What does Pratamnak have to offer?
Pratamnak is primarily a residential area and as a result, has a number of bars and restaurants although nightlife is somewhat limited which is often one of the main attractions. On Pratamnak Soi 4 you will also find a 9-hole, par 3 golf course which opens from 6am to 6pm daily. Pattaya Park which is a water park with other rides and attractions along with Pattaya Park Tower are also in the area.
For those who enjoy visiting night markets, you will be delighted to know that you can find one between sois 6 and 7 which has all of the things that a typical Thai market would offer. In addition to the usual stalls, you can also watch the excellent live band, enjoy something to eat and relax with a bottle of cold beer. The whole experience is thoroughly enjoyable and something that sees those who live in the area visiting on a regular basis.
When it comes to those who enjoy peaceful walks or maybe even a spot of jogging, Pratamnak has it all. A 1,430 metre pedestrian area around the Buddha Mountain is a particular favourite recreation spot along with a promenade that stretches for approximately 10km from Pratamnak to Na Jomtien if you feel that you need to burn up some additional energy.
