Yes I have been to Pattaya many times but azlways as a single  horny male or as a couple with G F.  This will be my first trip as a family with a 14 year old girl along as well as going to Jomtien   Besides the beach what else is there to do in the area.

 

Is Tiffany still closed?

Would you take a 14 year old girl to Tiffany? She might get confused.

nongnooch gardens and koh larn for daily trips.

paddle boards are in Na Jomtien, further south.

get involved with her with frisbee, balls.

In the evenings there are volleyball and group fitness with instructor.

There should also be tennis courts around. I know one some 30 minutes walk to south, next to B2 Sea Vie Hotel. On the same soi there are paddle boards and some other water sports

Not too far away is  Underwaterworld. Check if the floating market is open. Using Bolt, distance should not be a problem.

There is one further south I would put my trust in to if they allow 14 years to join a tandem skydive. 
 

They fly tandem paragliders at Koh Larn, as good as A tandem skydive if not even better scenery and flight time.

Why is a fake floating market a good day out?

OP is taking his 14 year old daughter, why would she know it's fake 😆 

 

Actually I found it by accident riding my rental bike, thought it wasn't bad for something different and all of my nephews and nieces loved the photos, so not a bad day out

to be fair I haven't been there but a fake market just seems wrong, but Nong Nooch will have plenty of good photo opportunities if op doesn't mind the dual pricing

Try Pattaya Waterpark. Near the sea between Pattaya and Jomtien. When finished, have lunch / dinner in the Sand's Café (400 m to the right).

Don't forget to visit Ice Cream Queen on Jomtien Beach and Khao Doi coffee. Best icecream ever, made in house. Coconut the best flavour in my opinion. Great milkshakes and cakes, and wonderful coffee next door. Not to be missed!

Falang can stay in the car and sulk..... at least get out of buying the ice-creams that way.

Why not get them windsurfing or parasurfing lessons? That's the kind of physical, active thing that teenagers love to do, much better than looking at boring old gardens. The place on the beach opposite Soi 6 should be able to help with windsurfing lessons, while for parasurfing (which looks much more interesting to me) there's a guy often down on Dongtan Beach, near the far toilet block, whose truck has an advertisement for lessons. I'll admit to trying windsurfing when I was in my late 20's, but I just couldn't get the hang of it. Mind you, the same thing went for skiing in the Alps, I was hopeless by the time I tried it in my 30's! These things are really best learnt when you're young, it's so much easier then.

Parasurfing ?  kite surfing? 
 

Parasailing is dangerous, stay away those guys.

Para Surfing is not the same thing as putting on a parachute and being dragged by a boat.

 

This is where you have some kind of surf board and control the parasail by hand.

 

Often seen on Jomtien, though not as often as the other kind.

 

I do think though that the level of difficulty may out it out of reach for many people. Also you need a lot of wind, so not every day.

Go cart riding near the pier in Pattaya. 1500thb gets you (5) 8 minute rides. Pretty fun, go carts are a blast.

 

Water parks, you've got the old one on the beach in Pattaya, 100thb/each or go to the one by Silver Lake, 600 thb/each  700thb for a Cabana. Always good depending on weather.

 

Dolphin Show, the Aquarium on Suk or you have Monster Aquarium a few minutes out of Pattaya.

And free for over 60's (but can't use the big slides).

 

Only open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the moment.

Well, there's the beach, a road, and a bunch of bars in any direction once you cross the road 🤣. Just kidding.

 

The go cart course near the pier would be fun for a 14 year old. Also, the Chocolate Factory.

 

Is this just a few days or long term?

 

Much better options around like Tarutao Island, Phi Phi Island, etc. with tourist type activities on the water, for example snorkeling, kayaking, etc that take up the day.
