Pattaya travelogue picture
After leaving Pattaya I went to Kanchanaburi and looked around for a place to stay. The prices were much higher than Pattaya and I asked why. A hotel proprietor in Kanchanaburi replied that the reason was, "There are so many bar girls in Pattaya."

Favourite spots:

The waterpark, the boardwalk along beach, and the walking street at night with vendors, bar girls, Thai boxing, and transvestite shows. Also, the Songkran festival which is a week of people spraying each other with water guns and sliming each other with wet talcum powder.


What's really great:

The tower jump, and snorkeling off the beach on Koh Larn a 50 cent ferry ride away from Pattaya

Sights:
Ripley's Believe or Not Museum. Great shopping at department stores, but not at the street vendors or malls. The beach in Pattaya is nothing to rave about. It used to be polluted with sewage runoff, but that has been fixed by a new sewage system. However, it is still a very small beach at high tide, overcrowded, and noisy from nearby road. For a nice beach, take a short ferry ride to one of the nearby islands.



Accommodations:

The Sutus Court has a nice swimming pool with palm trees, cable tv (two channels of English language movies with no commercials and local English language news) for the price of $8 per night, or $130 a month.

Nightlife:
Too numerous to name. There are clubs for all tastes. Tony's Entertainment was my favorite. They had good dinner specials including drinks, a discoteque, and a gaming room with pool tables etc. They also had an all you can drink beer special which a friend and I tried.

Restaurants:
Most restuarants are overpriced and they do not put hot sauce on food to suit European tastes. I usually ate at food court in a grocery store. It had many separate food stands selling a great variety of menus. I liked the duck in a savory sauce with rice meal the best. A few hotels have great breakfast buffets for about $3.
