Naklua is a place that is more orientated towards the local thai people than the visiting foreigners. A large town that is easily accessible by Sukumvit Highway 3.
It's got a more easier going vibe here. The people are less in your face trying to sell you things and are more friendly (we think) than Pattaya folk in general.
It's still got a few bars and a 'night scene' but nothing wild like walking street.
The roads are fairly quiet, even on the main drag.
Recreational facilitywise it's a bit thin on the ground and the expat wanting to indulge in hobbies like golf or fitness might be better travelling to Pattaya and / or Darkside district.
This is the market zone, doesn't really get going until later on in the evening.
One of the side sois off Naklua Road.
Naklua Main road facing south. Follow this road all the way and you'll eventually hit the dolphin roundabout.
