Jomtien is a short drive just south of Central Pattaya. It is a quieter and less busier area that runs along the stretch of beaches in southern Pattaya. As such, many beach front hotels, condominiums and restaurants take advantage of its ocean side location. The beach in this part of Pattaya is the Jomtien Beach stretching 6 kilometers long.
The area has attracted lots of upmarket property development over the recent years. As a result, Jomtien has become home to high-rise condominiums developments and gated communities popular with long-term status expats as well as Thai second-home buyers seeking the perfect blend of a tropical and residential lifestyle. The selection of fresh seafood restaurants are also a hit in the area offering great value and quality choices.
The lower half of Jomtien is referred to as Na Jomtien. It’s where some of the most high-end properties have settled, epitomizing luxury living against the backdrop of serene beaches. The beach in this area is the Ban Amphur Beach.
Major attractions in Jomtien include the Nong Nooch Garden, a beautiful 600 acre tropical garden; Pattaya Floating Market, the biggest floating market in the world; and the Ocean Marina Yacht Club, a marina and yacht club resort.
