Sand, sun and fun make Pattaya one of the most popular destinations for visitors to Thailand. Pattaya is an international city dedicated to the pursuit of excitement, pleasure and adventure.
Easy to get to from Bangkok by air conditioned bus. Pattaya offers every imaginable form of water sports, plentiful and affordable golf courses, and exciting nightlife. In the last few years Pattaya has made great efforts to broaden its appeal to family vacationers. You will find a lot of clubs and restaurants which cater to every taste and need. Pattaya’s famously charming hostesses will delight all your senses. Pattaya is the ideal destination for those seeking non-stop entertainment. It has boisterous go-go bars, noisy discos and nightclubs. Visitors seeking deserted and unpolluted beaches and a laid-back atmosphere should go elsewhere.
Hotels and guesthouses in every price range have more than 12,000 rooms available,and while Pattaya is not the cheapest beach resort in the region, it is competitively priced when compared to similar vacation destinations. It is unsurpassed in the variety of services and activities available.
With its many well equipped and reasonably priced dive (潜水) shops, Pattaya is a favorite destination of underwater divers from all over the world. While there are other superior dive sites in Thailand, Pattaya is the most convenient to Bangkok.
Pattaya beach is world renowned for the variety and unrestrained nightlife, though city leaders have in recent years made an effort to confine the commercial sex industry to an area of South Pattaya beach. The crazy merrymaking diminishes (减少) as you move up the beach road to central and north Pattaya, and to neighboring Naklua beach.

Re: Festival of Japan
Preparation is currently under way for the 2012 Festival of Japan to be held from the16 - 25 August.
The festival is an unprecedented opportunity to put the culture and arts of Japan on show and it has a wide program that relies on support from the Japanese community here in Christchurch as well as international visitors and groups.
We are currently approaching groups and individuals in the community who may wish to be involved in some way with the festival, either running their own event, being part of an event, or contributing volunteers.
All the events and activities are coordinated by The Events Company and we can make all the necessary arrangements needed to run the event. I have attached a draft program for the festival this year. Should either your school as a whole or any of your students wish to be involved in any way, please don’t hesitate to contact me. To register, I have attached an event registration form.
