Pattaya and the Phra Tamnak Hill area have accommodation options for every budget, from very reasonably priced hotel rooms and apartments within 5-10 minutes walking distance to a luxury boutique resort next to the club.
On the hill, there are restaurants, small shops, massage services, and minimarts. The latter sell SIM cards for local data plans, which you can also get at the airport on arrival. For larger supermarkets, shopping malls, and sightseeing attractions, one would have to get a ride or drive into Pattaya City. Drivers can easily be arranged using Grab or Bolt, or asking your hotel or the club reception desk. See our Area Map for more details.
