The accommodation is conveniently located (directly on a main road) if you understand the transport system. If money does not matter, then you can very quickly get to every place in Pattaya, if you have little buget then you make it like the locals, with little money one comes to each place, which takes then in any case longer. The most independent is if you rent a motorcycle or car, if you do not dare to do it same the locals, from the apartment you take a motorcycle taxis and goes down to Sukumvit Road.
Than you walk over the pedestrian bridge and takes a public shared taxi (in Thai "Songtheo") after brings to every corner of Pattaya.
You go shopping and the things are too heavy to carry to accommodation, not if you put the end station at one of the many supermarkets or shoppingcenter the have taxis are partly sponsored by the shops and bring you directly in front of the house. But you do not need to cook in the accommodation is on the other side a thaifreshmarket, since you get everything, also for the foreign palate. Yes, the accommodation is not on the beach, therefore it is low budet, if you only at beach makers or only shops the should be best to rent an accommodation either centrally or directly at the beach and pay more tenfold. Some of my guests use the accommodation when they go to the boxing school, GYM nearby, others come to hire quad, ATV, motocross trekking, mountain bicycle etc. or play golf, horse riding, go kart, skydiving, parasailing, water cable ski or only fishing the best before inform.
Ideal is the Mabprachan lake you can around the lake, you can find beergarden, restaurant , Bar and also nightlife ect.
Also the fitness park nearby is ideal for jogging in the evening around a goldfish pond. You like more tips? Let my know!
