Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum
We have seen hundreds of episodes on TV. But, this is nothing like you have seen. The franchise in Pattaya has more than 300 amazing attractions spread across 10 galleries. Look for the Titanic which has been made with 1 million matchsticks. Don’t miss the ‘Thrill Ride’ at the Ripley’s Motion Master Theatre. It is sheer horror and adventure for both kids and adults.
The museum is open between 11 am and 9pm. Keep about 2-3 hours aside for a thorough visit. Entry fee varies depending on the gallery.
Nong Nooch Tropical Garden and Resort
The Nong Nooch Tropical Garden and Resort, located about 15-kilometres south of Pattaya, is one of the biggest landscaped properties in South-East Asia. Spread across 500 acres, the variety of flowering plants and trees found here are feast to one’s eyes. You can also see the largest collection of orchids here.
There is something for everyone here – elephant shows, sports car museum, botanical garden, a zoo, Thai cultural show. The villas at the resort are comfortable. However, you can make a day-trip from Pattaya and avoid staying over. The restaurants at Nong Nooch are multi-cuisine with a variety of Indian dishes.
The Thai cultural extravaganza is the highlight and entry fee for adults and children is 600 Baht and 500 Baht respectively.
