    Where do you want to rent? I rented a pretty nice place in Bangkok for around 300 a month for 3 months. Pattaya will have pretty cheap monthly rentals. A lot of hotels/serviced apartments offer cheaper deals for month long accommodation.

    cool i have narrowed it down to pattaya being not far from Bangkok and Arryuthia have won the argument for me. As for where in pattya im still learning the lye of the land my biggest worry is flood damage followed by being close to transport/nightlife so i will keep researching

    Sorry Poseidon , I think you're mad ... from last week when you were never coming back to Thailand to looking at renting a place for a month in Pattaya .... you will be travelling in low season , no need to book anything in advance , go to Patts first , see if you actually like it ... then make a decision , its only your second visit , its best to explore the country a little , with a month you can have a great time travelling around

    Flood damage? Just don't get a ground floor apartment.. 55

    2nd Road Soi 7 to Soi 14 area is a good starting point... as sort of in the middle of everything...

    Good point. A month in Pattaya is a long time if you hate it... 55

    P...your question is as long as a piece of string.

    It depends on what you expect, your required standard of accomodation.

    At the moment there is a glut of rentals coming into the Patts market, all the units that were sold to the Ruskies before their money tanked. There is 13,000 units to be finished construction in the next 5 months, Patts and surrounding areas, like Jontimen.

    Join PA and there are many BM's that own units for rent there, also several Estate Agents are BM's.

    Spot on.

    Plan your trip properly this time and spend the month moving around seeing new places. You'll have a much better time.

    On the contrary...a ground floor apartment is the safest place to be.....especially in Pattaya...

    Why is that? Quick exit in a fire?

    He is probably thinking on the urge some Farangs have to fly when they are drunk...

    You can probably also call that a quick exit.

    Because the standard height of a railing is less than in western countries...especially on verandahs...all sorts of accidents happen....

    Is that the same one that turned the Pattaya streets in to white water rafting rivers?

    Yeah. That's the same one. It think it lasted 4-5 days.
