WHAT’S POPULAR IN PATTAYA
The line between sports and hobbies sometimes gets a little blurred as they can blend in together so let’s split this up into two camps.
Pattaya seems to be sports crazy, both the Thai’s and the foreign population that live and visit here are highly passionate about supporting their favourite sporting hero’s or teams and also participating in sporting events. The two major contenders for the most popular sport watched on T.V. is a toss up between ‘soccer’ and ‘Mauy Thai Boxing’, both sports have a huge following.
GOLF AND DRIVING RANGES
The most popular sporting activity amongst the tourist and expat community is golf, with many driving ranges and first class golf courses nearby, many come to Pattaya for a holiday just to take advantage of the golf courses and services available, just so they can play golf everyday of their time here at a substantially reduced price which they could never afford to do in their own countries.
