Walking Street Pattaya Chon Buri Thailand
Reaching the hotel, I took an hour to decide to visit the famous walking street. I along with one of my office colleagues started for the place around 12.30 am. Reaching the place, I was amazed with the lighting and crowd. I was totally in a different world. I could see many Indians there. Let me tell you what exactly a #walkingstreet is. It’s a long street with bars, cafes and pubs on both sides of the road. There were Russian, Thai and many other nationalities girls dressed in short cloths attempting to lure passer-by to the bars. You can also spot some shemales here and there. After doing some recce I and my friend entered one pub. I had never been to any such place previously; hence it was fascinating for me to watch the girls dancing by the pole. I ordered beer which was relatively cheaper- around 45 bhat which is 90 Rs. Approximately. We left the bar around 5 am in the morning and end up spending 2000 Tha bhat.
Pattaya Beach Pattaya Chon Buri Thailand
After reaching pattaya bus stand we took cab direcly to our hotel A One Star. Verify and negotiate your check in times in advance with the hotel if needed.Highlights of hotel:1.It is located next to Pattaya beach.2.It is the most happening place in Pattaya.3.The hotel has great ambience and well maintained standards.Website link: http://www.a-onehotel.com/pattaya/So totally we were happy with our place of choice.After quick relaxation we headed towards the night life. We have shared autos to travel inside Pattaya and these are known as “TUK-TUK”. We took TUK TUK to reach walking street. It charged us like 30 baht per person. Walking street is must visited place in Pattaya when you are looking for night life. This street is 800 meters long. In one line to describe this place is "A walk for 800 meters can change your perception towards life :P”. We rushed in one pub in walking street which had live music concert going on with descent crowd. It was great to chill out after a long journey.
Day 2 - Was travel day to Pattaya.Thanks to a very minor accident,we had to postpone the travel to early evening and not morning as planned.We took a bus from Ekkamai bus station to Pattaya.Buses leave on time here and hence it is best to arrive early enough.It gets very humid in Bangkok and hence best to ensure that you consume enough fluids through the day.We arrived at our hotel in Pattaya,relaxed for while before we headed to the streets nearby.Pattaya can be very much on your face initially.Definitely not my favorite place!Travel tip - shared tuk tuks are really cheap.Do ensure that you confirm the price per person before boarding these shared tuk tuks.Day 3 - By now,we were getting used to the weather,food and streets in Thailand.The strong cooking oil odor is everywhere and takes time getting used to.Day 3 started by a walk down the Pattaya beach road.The beach is strictly okay here.Travel Tip - Buy water from 7/11.It would cost anywhere between 9-18 THB.Restaurants charge a lot for bottle of water.After a long walk down the beach road and lunch at an Indian restaurant,we were back at our hotel ready to move back to Bangkok.The bus ride from Pattaya to Bangkok feels very similar to the bus ride from Mumbai to Pune.Since,we had an early morning flight to Phuket next morning,we booked a hotel (G9 Bangkok) closer to the Don Mueng airport.Travel Tip - If you are short of food and it is very late in the day - just walk upto a 711 store and buy packed food for 35-60THB.They would warm it at their store for you to carry back to your hotel.We had to do this because all restaurants in the area had closed by the time we got ready for dinner.If one has time,chatuchak market is a must visit.Day 4 - Travel to Phuket!A very different place compared to cities in North Thailand.The approach to Phuket runway is lovely! There are several small hills dotting the sea below!It looks gorgeous from the top.
