The most sought after country in every Indian travellers' bucket list is undoubtedly Thailand. The land of turquoise beaches, amazing night life, smiling people and easiest Visa procedure for Indians.

During our college days the most envisaged place to travel after our placements was unanimously "The Pattaya City". I had heard a lot about the night life and the "FUN" that people have in this small city, from my friends. I always knew that Pattaya is a country, and little did I know that it is a small but lively city in the country, Thailand. So we got placed in different organisations and 5 years passed, our dream was covered under the work pressure but it was not dead. And one day suddenly I got a video in my YouTube suggestion saying "Sin City Pattaya". I picked up my mobile and called my friend " dude lets go to Pattaya our dream destination" And then began the search.
