Thailand Vacation of Pattaya Attractions.
Chon Buri The Nearest Seaside Retreat
Chonburi, Bangkok's nearest seaside town, is located on the eastern coast of the Gulf of Thailand, only 80 kilometers from Bangkok. The area boasts abundant natural resources, which are highlighted by delightful beaches, local colors, traditions, delicacies and fresh seafood. This is a popular resort among Bangkokians who seek the nearest escape from hectic weekly schedules as Chon Buri has something for everyone. In addition, Chon Buri is the center of the Eastern Seaboard Development Project, with its industrial parks and fishing villages.
Pattaya - A Travelers Paradise
Pattaya is nestled along a picturesque bay on the East Coast of the Gulf of Thailand, roughly 170 kilometers southeast of Bangkok. From a fishing village in the 1960's, Pattaya has emerged as the favorite Southeast Asian vacation center. A fascinating escape where tourists, holiday makers and vacationers from around the world unfold an incomparable array of possibilities to unwind during an exotic holiday beach vacation.
Unlike other beach resorts, where natural surroundings are used as magnets to attract tourists, Pattaya makes an all-out attempt to provide the best of everything. Here, everything means everything a tourist can imagine while on holiday: recreation, entertainment, sports, sightseeing and fun. To put it simply, Pattaya is a paradise for everyone, as it has a variety of attractions suitable for all types of visitors. This is the place where you can fill your day, from dusk to dawn, with endless activities, or you may choose to do nothing at all and relax.
Pattaya's name was originated from the march of Phraya Tak (later known as King Taksin the Great) and his followers from Ayutthaya to Chanthaburi just before the fall of the Ayutthaya Kingdom to the Burmese invaders in 1767.
When Phraya Tak's army arrived in the vicinity of what is Pattaya today, he encountered the troops of Nai Klom who tried to intercept him. When the two leaders met face to face, Nai Klom was awed by Phraya Tak's dignified manner and his army's strict discipline, thereby surrendering without a fight. The place where the two armies confronted each other was later called Thap Phraya, which means the Army of the Phraya. This was later changed to Phatthaya, which happens to mean the wind blowing from the southwest to the northeast at the beginning of the rainy season. Today the spelling of the name has been simplified to Pattaya.
For centuries, Pattaya was a small fishing village almost cut off from the outside world. But a big change occurred on 29 April 1961 when the first group of about 100 American servicemen who would join the Vietnam War arrived in Pattaya for relaxation. Soon, sleepy Pattaya became Thailand's premier and most successful beach resort, which annually attracts hundreds of thousands of pleasure-seeking visitors. A full range of accommodations from super deluxe hotels to bungalows and mini-pocket guesthouses replaced fishermens huts along the beach. Fishing vessels were adapted to become tourist boats and swimmers and sunbathers from various parts of the world frequented the quiet powdery golden beaches. Places of nighttime entertainment have also sprung up and are popular among international tourists.
Pattaya currently integrates the delights of a 1st class beach resort, city-like dining, shopping and night entertainment facilities with more than 300 assorted hotels, thousands of shops, restaurants and bars. In addition, there are an array of sports and recreational activities including beaches, golf courses, tennis courts, go-kart, gyms for working out, weight lifting and Thai-boxing gear. Pattaya offers a broad range of things to do. During the day, one may enjoy riding elephants or driving humble automatic mini-bikes, monstrous motorcycles, or even monster multicolored convertible Jeeps. Others go for shooting firearms, scuba diving and surfing, deep-sea fishing, speed boats, scooters, water-skiing, parasailing, or aerial sports such as gliding ultra-lights and flying motor-propelled gliders. On the other hand, at night, there are restaurants, bars, theaters, cabaret shows, night clubs, bowling halls, billiard & snooker clubs, discos, sauna & massage parlors, not to cite its absolutely incredible shopping which is available non-stop both day-and-night.
This exotic beach resort welcomes approximately 5 million visitors a year. The friendly and hospitable Thai nature boosts its promotion, frequently bringing back the repeat visitors and constantly increasing the number of newcomers.
Pattaya city is located on the eastern coast of the country at latitude 13 N and longitude 101 E in the area of Chon Buri province. It is 147 kilometers from Bangkok and lies parallel to Sukhumvit Road on its east and the coastline on its west. Pattaya occupies an area of 208.1 sq. km. that is divided into 53.44 sq. kilometers of land and 154.66 sq. kilometers of islands and sea. Its coastline is 15 kilometers long.
Pattaya has a plain on the coast with some high mountains to the south. The area on the east slopes down towards the sea on the west.

One of the unique features in Thai boxing is the music, which is known as the "Sarama". It is played before and during the combat session. This Sarama music or the wind music is played before the fight with a ceremony, which the fighter performs to pay his respect and gratitude towards those who insisted and helped him to become a boxer. He thinks of his teacher who trained him with all his knowledge and efforts and of his parents who gave him life. This music helps the boxer to raise his spirits and confidence and make him ready for the real physical combat. You can find more information about music at Muay Thai Fighting Website.

Long drum can be made out of the whole hardwood trunk. It has merely one head. The widest part of the drum is at the head. The upper part narrows down to the thinner neck and to the open end. Another piece of wood is placed at the end so as to make a wide edge. Long drum has an average drumhead of 20 cm in diameter as well as a body of 75 cm in length.
In the distant past, Thai people unquestionably knew how to invent the musical instruments themselves or to imitate the prototypes of other and then acclimatize them to their own exploitation. When they still resided in their original country in southern China, it appears, in accordance with the chronicles of time, that the Thai were a people who were always fond of music and singing and that the Thai had a high musical knack. It can be evident that the very foremost Thai musical instruments were given names in relation to the sound the made. Subsequently, the Thai discovered more sophisticated methods of creating musical instruments.
The account of Thai musical practice is interlinked with numerous regional influences. The Thai musical instruments are handcrafted by skillful craftsmen living in various parts of the country. The musical tradition of Thailand has been kept alive through centuries. The country has an intriguing range of drums due to a rich history of classical and folk music, diverse population and prime location in the heart of Southeast Asia where it brought in impression from the neighboring countries. One of the most frequently utilized drums in Thailand is Thai Long Drum of “Klong Yao” which can disclose the refinement of Thai musical instruments.
Drums are regarded as caliber products based on years of experience and the complexity involved in every step of production. Locally available pinewood is the principal raw material for the body of the drum owing to the flexible texture that makes carving simple. Nevertheless, different types of drums require different kinds of hides. Buffalo hide is ideal for a variety of drums as it is thicker than cowhide ensuring a lasting quality for intense handlings. Ropes and nails are used to clasp the leather to the drum. Devised for specific purposes, drums come in assorted shapes and sizes from timpani to long drums, one-sided drums or dance drums.
Long drum is a Thai drum relatively alike to the African djembe in its playing style. However, the neck of the drum is long and slender with a trumpet-like base. Long drum is characterized by its tremendous length. It is most prevalent in Thailand, Africa and Native American tradition. Long drum can be made out of the whole hardwood trunk. It has merely one head. The widest part of the drum is at the head. The upper part narrows down to the thinner neck and to the open end. Another piece of wood is placed at the end so as to make a wide edge. Long drum has an average drumhead of 20 cm in diameter as well as a body of 75 cm in length.
The body of the drum is conventionally adorned with a piece of cloth and tied up around the upper part of the body. Another circle of cloth hangs down slackly from the rim of the head. A long strip is also fastened to the head and then united to the narrow part of the drum so that it can be slung from the shoulders. The drum is played chiefly with the hands but some adept players are able to play with their elbows, knees and even their heels! The original from of long drum is believed to come from Burma which was adapted by Thai soldiers at the onset of the Bangkok period when the Thai and the Burmese were engaged in their last war.

The Martial art of Muay Thai has its own unique techniques. It consists of the use of nine weapons. The head, fists, elbow, knee and feet are collectively known as Na-wa arwud. But today the use of head is no longer allowed in the Muay Thai fights. In Muay Thai small amount of grappling is used (The Clinch) for both defending and attacking purpose. Muay Thai techniques are divided into two groups: Mae Mai or Major techniques and Luk mai or Minor techniques.

Swing = Mud Wjang Yao
Spinning Back fist = Mud Wjang Glab
Upper Cut = Mud Seub
Cobra Punch = Kra-Dod Chok
Over Head Punch = Mud Khouk
The judges in Muay Thai fights scores less to the fighters for the punching techniques as they are generally less effective and powerful than kicks or knee strikes. Body punching is also used less in Muay Thai as it exposes the fighters head to the strikes of knee or elbow from the opponent.
Elbow Techniques: (Dhee Sork)

The elbow is used in seven ways in Muay Thai, horizontally, diagonal upwards, diagonal downwards, uppercut, downward, backward spinning and flying. The elbow is also used from the sides as a finishing move or to cut the opponents' eyebrow so that he bleeds. Bleeding blocks the vision and also affects the fighter's performance.
Kicking Techniques: (Dhe)
Straight Kick = Dhe Dhrong
Nutcracker Kick = Dhe Paa Maak
Round house Kick = Dhe Dhad
Diagonal Kick = Dhe Chivang
Half-spin, half knee kick = Dhe Krueng Kheng Krueng Kao

This angle kick in Muay Thai has been adopted by many other forms of martial arts as it is very effective. The round house kick is almost similar to the kicks used in karate or taekwondo. Many Muay Thai fighters also uses a counter rotation of his arms to enhance the power of his kick. A Muay Thai fighter is always taught to hit with his shin. Although the shin is very sensitive for an untrained person the shin is the strongest part of the leg than the foot as it contains fine bones and is much weaker.
Knee Techniques: (Dhe kao)
