This quiet fishing town has a beautiful beach and great local people. A good variety of shops throughout the centre of town and along the main street. There are a few bars dotted about open until around midnight, playing music, hosting karaoke and serving great food and refreshing drinks. There is not a heavy nighlife scene, unlike the nearby city of Pattaya. It is more of a traditional place with great access to local attractions such as Nong Nooch Gardens, Monkey Island and some beautiful islands such as Koh Samed or Koh Samaesan.
