12 ways how Travstore made my trip to Pattaya very tantalizing
Pattaya as you all know, is known for its crazy & wild nightlife that attracts overseas visitors, weekenders from Bangkok & expats. But over the course of time, Pattaya has earned reputation as a shopping destination coupled with cultural & action packed attraction & international restaurants.
Well, in a recent trip of mine, Travstore made all of this possible & here I am suggesting to try out these 11 places & have a fun filled vacation.
Being a Foodie, Ill share my best experience @ the various Bars & Restaurants
- Sphere Bar
A new entrant that has made its impact among the most influential bars in Pattaya. The idea is to get into the groove & get close to the Stars of the Sphere. It’s a chic setup having ceiling embedded sparkling lights that evoke the constellations above. An enticing space theme bar offering the perfect music, outdoor balconies but most importantly the unique drink’s list like the one I had was Interstellar and Berry Comet—plus lots of nitrogen. You should try it too !
2. Mini Mellow
Are you the one who has a sweet tooth.. then you know where to lead. Mini mellow is a tiny café which offers sweet temptations & drinks like tea, coffees & shakes. The highlight of the place is the Soft serve icecreams & Japanese styled shaved ice in Yakult, Soymilk flavours. You can add their banana caramel topping which enriches the taste as well makes the ice shaves more aromatic. For the soft serves, I would recommend to have Vanilla milk mixed with Belgian chocolate. Hmm…its yummy.
- Tree Tales Pratumnak
Do you think of healthy diet even while you are on a vacation, well this is a place perfectly suits your needs. It’s a small café located on Nakula road with a organic earthy ambience & open kitchen & peaceful settings.
Tree Tales offers a list of fresh pressed juices like the Green Potion made of Spinach, green apple etc, seasonal juices like The Mango Pannacotta etc. This café serves tantalizing garden menu like Pulled Pork “Green Burger” made from spinach & rosemary, Vegan crafted menu & much more. The highlight of this place is the Eggs Bunny dish made from poached eggs, lemon hollandaise sauce, bacon, toast, rocket and radish.
- Chocolate Factory
As the name suggest, its chocolaty everywhere. The menu offers a range of premium quality chocolates & desserts that are lip smacking. Try their signature dish Choclate pizza, its just different. Besides chocolate there is a range of French patisserie & basic eatery.
Chocolate Factory also conducts workshop during specific times of the month. If you are a chocolate freak you can try your hands on chocolate making.
- Skoop Beach Café
Decked with the wooden ambience, Skoop café is located on Na Jomethien beach. The best part is grab any seat & you are bound to have a beautiful view of the sea. Trust me, I can spend hours & hours just watching & listening to the sound of the waves.
Skoop is all about sweets, waffles, brownies etc. I personally enjoyed the Ice cream sandwiches made from cookies & rice crackers. Try the Banoffee shake on a sunny day, perfect to keep your mind cool.
- A La Champagne
This is a very interesting place. It has a European country like ambience but its offerings are very much Asian. It offers a wide range of facilities for the customers like there is a Tea Factory house that offers wide range of leaves from Japan, Sri Lanka, India, Taiwan & Israel; Somtam villa which offers variety of Somtams & eating joints like the Wine Villa or the Italian restaurant.
The unique part of this place is that there is a Weekend Farmer market held at the premises where locals can taste & select product they wish to buy, like I bought the most yummy almonds of the world.
Well these were some wonderful cafes, bars etc that Travstore had planned for me & my tummy. But since you are in Pattaya, there is much more to food & I ventured into doing some kickass activities.
- Silverlake Vineyard
If you have a day in Pattaya for leisure, you can head to the some wine tasting sessions at Silverlake Vineyard. Travstore arranged a chauffeur driven cab to ensure the travel is comfortable. It’s a simple place filled with beautiful flowers & decorations. Although the activity is not much, you can enjoy the rustic ambience by sipping some wine & grape products.
- Sanctuary of truth
It’s a gigantic wooden structure called “The magnificence of heaven created on earth”. Every inch of this place is covered with a wooden carved sculpture to reflect the ancient visions of Earth, ancient knowledge & eastern philosophy. The sculptures are beautifully crafted with intricate designs that make your jaws drop. It’s indeed a wonderful masterpiece. Also as an activity you can feed the fishes & animals like horses, elephants etc. which is worth the experience.
- Harbor Pattaya
What if these ecstatic activities are couple with shopping. Harbor pattaya is a beach front mall that offers a good combination of both. For the shopaholics there is a Tesco supermarket, local electronic shops etc. For the foodies there is plenty of options of Thai, Japanese & fast food. And for people like me who like to have their adrenaline rush at its peak there are various activities like 10 meter wall climbing, Trampoline park & much more.
Pattaya is also a city to relax, unwind & just be on a break. And if you want to take out the most from your vacation, I suggest explore hotels where you check –in to have a great time. With that very notion Travstore had arranged my stay in these hotels & resorts.
- The Monttra
It is not like the regular Pattaya style hotel. The property is situated on the cliff that has its own private beach. It’s a natures county couple with modern amenities for a luxurious stay. The resort offers a Soap concierge who will present a platter of soothing soaps upon request. You can select a range of options meeting your needs. The other amenities include a pool, various purpose spas & thai culinary classes.
11. Veranda Resort Pattaya
The resort is on Na Jometien beach, quite close to the pattaya city yet secluded enough to enjoy the pristine beachfronts, oceanic view etc. Peace is what reflects from the architect of the place having blue theme rooms , infinity pool with geometric sun loungers, bars etc. Warm & relaxed outdoor makes the resort a good getaway.
12. Pullman Pataya Hotel G
This hotel has recently been refurbished offering 214 deluxe rooms, 54 soft touch-up Lanai rooms and superior Lanai Pool Access. The beach facilities include a bar & sunset lounge that provides a panoramic view of the ocean. They have interesting facility for kids i.e a baby sitting services, one can avail the same with prior notification. Over all it’s a beautiful hotel to laze around & pamper yourself.
