Pattaya Rental Car Trip Destination Ideas – Sattahip
Pattaya is known as one of the most popular holiday destinations for tourists and expats all year round. Unlike certain holiday destinations where accommodation is expensive, Pattaya offers their visitors affordable options, and that is certainly good news for the budget conscious.
Sattahip is a very interesting place in Chonburi and many of their attractions are under the care and responsibility of the Thai navy. Since half of the location is side by side with the sea, naval bases are a common sight along its coast. Visitors often feel safe as the navy provides high security practices and standards. Below are some things you can do while you are at Sattahip:
Like-minded individuals can visit Bang Sarey to experience a fulfilling day that consists of hanging out by the beach, enjoy walking in the cool seawater, eating at their seafood or beach restaurants and fishing! Whatever you need to get to make your visit here comfortable, the village can provide you the necessary support.
Sea Turtle Convention Centre – The delightful sea turtles
The Sea Turtle Convention Centre is not far from Samae San Village. It aims to promote love towards these sea creatures through their conservational efforts. There are also useful sources which you can learn from and increase your awareness on the preservation of these Thai sea turtles. The centre is also suitable for kids as there are several nursery ponds that house the turtles, a sight that simply exudes cuteness.
Sattahip Naval Base – For those interested in the military
This is your chance to step foot onto an aircraft carrier, something that might be impossible for tourists in their native countries. The naval base is considered to be the largest base of the Royal Thai Navy of Thailand. The base was established by King Rama VI for sea defence purposes. The base is still active and is used for the maintenance and anchoring of their navy vessels.
Thailand’s Island and Sea Natural History Museum
Other than the educational displays of collected fossils, rocks, soil and ethnic species, visitors are able to take in the panoramic views of the amazing ocean and its neighbouring islands. The exhibition aims to impress their visitors and raises the importance why humans should protect their natural treasures.
Dongtan Beach – Beach activities
If you need to hit the beach, Dongtan Beach is the place for you. Apart from the usual seawater activities, you are recommended to attempt sailing a sailboat at least once. After a day of tiring water activities, you can end the day with a relaxing Thai massage.
If you are driving from, it is just a short drive before you reach Sattahip. The total distance between the 2 locations is approximately 31km. Since there are multiple places of interest you can visit, it is advisable that you invest in the services of a Pattaya car for rent because that is the best way to make a road trip memorable and the costs you incur are nothing compared to the fun you can get!
