Synonymous with tourism, Pattaya is unapologetic about its bread and butter industry. But walking the same streets as the stiletto-wearing ladyboys are ever-increasing numbers of Russian tourists and Chinese tour groups. More than anything, Pattaya today is a schizophrenic experience part package holiday destination part prostitution central.
