Pattaya is a coastal city that seems to be constantly brimming with energy. Located along the Gulf of Thailand, Pattaya is naturally known for its idyllic beaches. Despite having a reputation for being a “party destination”, this Muslim-friendly city is actually brimming with plenty of halal food and mosques. 

When the sun is up, its beaches are dotted with beachgoers and water-sport junkies. As the sun sinks below the horizon, travellers and locals alike take to the streets to shop and eat. As you traverse different areas of Pattaya, keep up with this energetic city and fuel up at some of these 17 halal establishments: 

Central Pattaya

With a four-kilometre stretch of sand, lay your towel on the golden sand and bask in the lovely Thai sunshine. For adrenaline junkies, try parasailing or jet skiing!

Other than spending time on the beach, Muslim travellers could walk along some of Pattaya’s famous road such as Beach Road and Walking Street. Lined with halal restaurants, boutiques and massage parlours, there’s something for everyone!
