The Pratumnak area is just South of Pattaya city and within walking distance to the Pattaya nightlife, but provides a serene quieter lifestyle. Known as the Beverly Hills of Pattaya this area is very popular with developers for large condominium projects, boasting fine beaches, a nine hole golf course and plenty of local dining.
Notable attractions are the Big Buddha on the hill, or the Pattaya lookout to watch the sun set over the islands, a very romantic spot for couples.
There are some gourmet restaurants in the area and a coffee shop at the top of the hill has that million dollar view. This coffee shop faces Pattaya Bay near Sor Tor Ror 5 radio station and the great institute of Prince Apakorn memorial that is a popular tourist attraction.
