    That whole area in Jomptien is just a mass of big hotels now. That is where my time-share used to be.

    First time I went to Jomtien the only place to stay was a hostel type place owned by the YMCA. Can't remember the price but it wasn't too bad. There were two hotels in Pattaya and they were much more expensive.

    Great footage. Just imagine though, this guy would have had a big fuck off camera on his shoulder riding passenger on a scooter 55.
    Anything worth doing is worth overdoing. Moderation is for cowards.

    Not much different to ANY beach city in Thailand... present or past.

    You have clearly not been to many beach destinations in Thailand.

    Besides Pattaya and the immediate areas north and south of it for 40 km, I've been all around Koh Chang, Kho Samui, Koh Samet, Phuket island, Krabi, Koh Yao, Hua Hin and the Similan Islands. Only the Similan Islands were truly different because they are a National Park and not supposed to be developed.

    Anywhere there is or was development quickly becomes a mini-Pattaya with a whole string of beach huts and businesses. In more populated areas the big hotels move in and move the "little people" out.

    I actually agree with Ian, pretty much

    I am sure there is a couple secluded beaches that are nice but if it becomes a well known area the Thais don't have any real planning and the beach towns get overrun and ugly

    I am trying to think of any beach town in Thailand I think of as a nice beach town and I can't come up with one

    Maybe Baan Krut

    Koh Phayam has nice West facing beaches that are clean and great for swimming and doesn't actually have a town just some rustic bars and restaurants.
    A beach needs to have clean water and some sort of wave action for it to rate for me.
    Nai harn and surin beaches are good too.
