Pattaya has derived part of its reputation as a tourist destination due to the sex industry and the resulting nightlife, and in many ways the city has become what it is now because of this. Prostitution in Thailand is technically illegal but reality shows that it is tolerated as is the case for Pattaya with its vast numbers of host bars, gogo bars, massage parlours, saunas, and hourly hotels, serving foreign tourists as well as locals. This is prevalent in the Walking Street as well as other areas around the city. Efforts have of late been made to clean up the city's image.
Pattaya also has Asia's largest gay scene based around Boyztown and Sunee Plaza. The city is also famous for its flamboyant kathoey cabaret shows where transsexual and transgender entertainers perform to packed houses.

A daily service operates on the Eastern Line of the State Railway of Thailand between Pattaya and Hualumphong Station in Bangkok.
Pattaya is served by frequent bus service from Bangkok's Northern Bus Terminal (Mo Chit) and the Eastern Bus Terminal (Ekamai), connecting to Pattaya's main bus terminal on Pattaya Nuea near Sukhumvit Road. A bus service which connects Pattaya with Suvarnabhumi Airport is on Tappraya Road near the intersection of Thepprasit Road. It uses modern air-conditioned buses, and takes around 1 1?2 hours to reach the airport. The trip from the airport to the bus terminal in Pattaya takes considerably longer due to many stops along Sukhumvit Road in Pattaya. Buses from a terminal on Sukhumvit Road near Pattaya Klang connects Pattaya with many destinations in the northeast (Isan).
City and suburban services are mainly provided by songthaew, popularly nicknamed "baht buses" or "blue taxis".
Some metered taxis and air-conditioned vans operate for private hire from hotel car-parks. Popularly nicknamed "baht-buses" in Pattaya, songthaews are the most common mode of public transportation. The cost is 10 baht for any distance on a regular route, but much higher if asked to go to a specific destination. Motorbike taxis generally operate in the town and suburbs. Although taxis must carry meters by law they are, in reality, rarely used.
Pattaya is about 1 1?2 hours, or 120 kilometres (75 mi) by road from Suvarnabhumi Airport, Bangkok's international hub. By road, it is accessed from Sukhumvit Road and Motorway 7 from Bangkok. Pattaya is also served by charter flights via U-Tapao International Airport which is 45 minute drive south of the city.....
