Boats in Jomtien Pattaya Thailand. Jomtien (จอมเทียน) or Jomtien Beach (หาดจอมเทียน, Haat Jomtien), on road signs and road maps also often written Chom Tian, is a town on the east coast of the Gulf of Thailand about 165 km southeast of Bangkok in Chonburi Province. It is about 3 km south of Pattaya and is home to high-rise condominiums, beach side hotels, beaches, and restaurants.

There has been a construction boom in the last several years with many new condominiums as well as housing developments built in the Jomtien area. It has become quite popular with Bangkok residents seeking a second home, as well as with retired expatriates.

The Jomtien Complex includes a large group of shophouses, many restaurants, bars and stores. A recent trend has been the opening of many upscale restaurants along Thappraya Road, the main thoroughfare connecting Pattaya and Jomtien. Also Second Road (running parallel to Beach Road about 400 m inland) was completed in the last few years and now features many new developments and the Jomtien market adjacent to another complex of about 60+ open-air bars.

A large number of Russian and Scandinavian nationals visit or live in the area.

Jomtien Beach is known for its water sports (jet skis, para-sailing, scuba diving), and for several annual sponsored sports events and festivals, attracting visitors from around the world.

A 265-meter section of Jomtien Beach (also known as Dongtan Beach) is Pattaya’s only gay beach.

Jomtien Beach is about 1-1/2 hours, or 120 km by road from Suvarnabhumi Airport, the Bangkok international hub. By road, it is accessed from Sukhumvit Road and Motorway 7from Bangkok. There is a new airport bus service terminal located on Thappraya Road just north of the Thepprasit Road intersection.
