Pattaya 2011 - Walking Street
Walking Street is so famous that it gets a mention in most write-ups about Pattaya. It is located at the Southern end of Pattaya Beach. There is a large archway right at the entrance to the street, and though it is right beside the sea once you enter the street you are completely surrounding by shops on both sides and you could be anywhere in Thailand.
The main reason for visiting Walking Street is for the nightlife. If you come during the day, it is quite dead and you might be wondering what the fuss is all about. Besides all the pubs and entertainment outlets, there are also quite a number of seafood restaurants along the street. Some are quite are quite good, and you can dine on the deck right next to the sea. As these places are targeted mainly at tourists, be prepared to pay tourist pricing.

For me Walking Street is overhyped and unless you are going there for the nighlife you can give it a miss.
