Pattaya

The coastal town of Pattaya makes for a fun day trip from Bangkok. It's known for its modern temple complex, Wat Yansangwararam, whose Buddhist structures were built not only in Thai style, but also in Chinese, Japanese and Indian styles. Within the complex is the Viharn Sien Pavilion, a former Chinese temple that's now a museum filled with artifacts and antiquities, including ancient pottery. The Pattaya Elephant Village, a sanctuary for these gentle creatures, offers elephant rides through the lush countryside.
