    Pattaya beach update

    IMG_0023.jpg

    Not so bad i think, the beach there have got a lot of ravings, but looks better and better day for day
    Just took some pictures 3 weeks ago and maybe never will be a beach resort, but at least they try to do something

    Guess it's the sort of place where a nice pool in your hotel is extra important.

    The Beach is OK to sit on in a deck chair..but you do get hit on by pesky hawkers all day...

    Yes...swimming is best left to the pool..wouldn't wanna swim in that contaminated soup

    Not really a beach person but sometimes the girly of the day wants to go, which is strange as they want to sit in the shade as they don't want a tan.

    The food is good from the restaurants and street sellers and will come to you on your sunbed, plus you will have guy's getting you beers.

    I made the mistake of buying prawns from one of those ladies carrying their steaming baskets, i had to find a toilet rather quickly and returned to my hotel with severe food poisoning. Had to send the girly to the pharmacy for antibiotics. (so avoid the prawns)

    I would never go into the water as the shit pipe at Jomtien washes liquid sewage round the bay and into the water on Pattaya beach.

    Although I do like walking down Beach road though, although it is annoying when guys every 10m try to sell you jet ski hire (definitely avoid) or tickets to the island.

    As others have said, better to swim in your hotel pool if you want to swim, not for me, I might be former Royal Navy, but I hate the water 55555.

    Are you SURE you aren't my younger brother? 555

    The only place I enjoy swimming is in the rivers of BC and only with a snorkle and mask. I enjoyed swimming the tropical reefs with lots of fish, but that requires going off the rocky points. Sitting on a beach bores me. I never could get much of a tan, but I do get skin cancer.

    There are some nice sandy areas at the north end now and they are making improvements all the way down to the southern end. But like others have suggested, great to relax on the beach but forget the swimming.

    I wouldn't say they are nice

    But nicer than further down south

    Also, a lot less umbrellas........which make the beach look like shit

    Now that you've been there. Is it as big a shithole as you imagined?

    Bet it can't hold a candle to Angeles as far as shitholes go though. Stay tuned. Detailed report coming in 60 days

    Although I haven't been to Angeles City in 20 years I thought at the time it was like Pattaya on steroids. And Pattaya then was more raunchy than it is today.

    Pattaya seems real tame to me compared to what I've heard and seen in videos. Never once saw a BG holding a sign saying f*ck my *ss, but I know that used to be a part of the landscape once upon a time.

    Why does everything that's good and decent in this world have to die? 55

    I was expecting the worst when I first went to Pattaya... but when I got there it just felt like a much bigger version of Patong. So the shitty parts were bigger... but conversely there was more of the good parts... and also for me it doesn't feel like it has changed much since I first went all those years ago... except maybe less busy in the bars....
