Walking street is the most famous, one might even say the legendary street of Pattaya. This is the hottest place in the whole city, a kind of attraction that justifies Pattaya's reputation as «sin cities». What attracts crowds of tourists to the center every evening.

Walking street in Pattaya
During the day Walking street is open for traffic, and in the evenings it turns into a pedestrian street. Although it is believed that entertainment on Volkin Street «for adults only», families with children, people of retirement age and families meet here. Basically, there are just bars and restaurants on Volkin Street, including Russians, where Russians gather and Russian music is played..
The place is not for everybody, but it is worth going and seeing once. All the same, the attraction is local. But this is not a recommendation, I know, very many will not go. This is not Red Light Street in Amsterdam, which looks more civil. Although she is not an amateur.
The barkers here obsessively offer to watch various pussy shows. I was once on this, work obliges 🙂 But this is tough. In my opinion, it is not interesting at all. Nothing so extraordinary, rather feigned and stupid. No idea who might like it. Yes, you can go neighing, but it is. And yes, there are some very scary women there.
There are a lot of Indians and Arabs on Walking, very straight. And of course, shemales and ladyboys. It looks like they come to see them. But you can not be afraid that someone will start to pester, a ladyboy or an ordinary girl of easy virtue. In a sense, no one will be dragged into the club by force if you are not interested. Since the girls / guys are standing at the entrance, it is not necessary for the onlooker tourist to go anywhere. You just go and stare around, which is what most do. But if you are really looking for adventure and all sorts of sexual pleasures, then you will be dragged and served.
A photo or selfie can usually be taken without any problems. Ladyboys love to pose so much. I didn’t, because I don’t need it, so there’s no quarrel, there will be no pictures. And, unfortunately (or fortunately), I will not have a review and rating of go-go bars, not my profile at all.
If you walk along the entire street, you will come to the Bali Hai pier, from which ferries leave for Koh Lan, speed boats and pleasure ships during the day. The pier is a pleasant place at night - a breath of fresh air after Walking Street. There is no one here anymore and you can just walk in silence.
But again, there is no point in going here specifically for the silence, only if you want to take a look at Walking Street along the way. Well, or if you just desperately need to photograph the PATTAYA sign.
Yes, it is worth mentioning separately that Walking is not the whole of Pattaya. Those who think so are mistaken. If you live not in the very center of the city and not next to this street, then you will not really notice anything special at all. I myself am rather skeptical about this resort, because a beach vacation is not for everybody (the beaches are so-so), but nevertheless I understand those who go there with children on vacation. The beaches of Protamnak, Dongtan, Cozy Beach are pretty good and the areas around them are also good. Alternatively, climb to the end of Jomtien or even further.
But maximum infrastructure! More only in Bangkok. Hospitals, shopping centers, any shops, many Russian families with children, with whom you can communicate, various activities for children.
How to get there
If you walk along the sea along the promenade in the center of Pattaya towards the hill with big red letters PATTAYA, it will just lead to Volkin Street. This is the very center of the city, it is difficult to get lost here. And the street itself leads to the Bali Hai pier under the hill.
If you go from Jomtien, you can take a tuk-tuk to the final stop and walk literally 100 meters to the left, to the sea. If you go from the north, then a tuk-tuk will take you to Volkin Street, going from the circle with dolphins to the center, along the Beach Road along the sea. You need to leave where the road turns from the sea.
