    Spur of the moment- Pattaya Nov19-30

    What happened?...this past year has flown by like no other year before, for me anyway...so much so that I kind of forgot to use my vacation time...555

    My company has a use it or lose it policy before the end of the year, and I'm not one to forfeit my limited benefits, so I quickly scheduled the time off from work and booked a trip...to Disneyland for men!...555

    I can't believe I made this happen so quickly, given the meticulous planning I usually do. I've decided to stick to one place this time though, since it's a relatively short trip.

    Anyway, I'll be in Patts from Nov. 19-30th, staying at the Marriott. If anyone else is around that time (less than two weeks from now!) I'd be happy to meet up for a drink or 5..

    ^ most likely not March, DP...maybe April or June

    The friend I had mentioned to you, wanting to go, is having some health issues he needs to deal with first...so I'm not sure. I wasn't going to wait on him! I have some miles I need to use up before then too so this worked out pretty well for a possible upgrade to Business Class on the way home.

    Thanks, SS! Looking forward to the trip! I barely have time to even think about it as my departure will be here before you know it. We'll see what kind of shenanigans I can get up to this time..555

    Man I even get excited when other people are going. November's a good time too. Hoards of nicely rested lasses pouring into town to take advantage of the high tides. Enjoy, and as always, throw a little bone our way.
    Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

    555...I was kind of hoping people would forget about that. I guess it's forever etched in a TR somewhere

    Yeah, never been this time of year so I'm anxious to see the difference. The last time, and only time, I was in Patts was just after the coup and curfew had just been lifted so it was pretty quiet. I have a feeling things will be a little different this time

    I dunno, I found Pattaya quite quiet between Xmas and New Years last year....and that is highest season...

    ^ I don't want it to be dead, but I actually prefer the smaller crowds anyway. Reading of other's experience around Bangla at Xmas and New Years doesn't really appeal to me because of the crowds.

    Most times you will find area's where there is a good turnover of customers and others that are dead quiet.. I quite like a sort of in between vibe.
    I am sure you will have a great trip and am looking forward to your TR. I gave Patts a mis this year, but will be back in early March, so will take careful note of your better picks.. (Places that is 555)

    When I was there in December last year a few days it wasn't really warm enough to lay about the pool. Went out couple times after midnight and wore a thin fleece top too. Prob was like 18 something like that.

    I'm with you on the bolded part, Pete. I'll take good notes (of the places also...55) and do a proper report when I return
