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
Day 2: Laze around the Pattaya Beach and drive to the middle of the sea. One can experience multiple water activities like Sea Walking, Motor- Biking and Parasailing. One should not miss the sea walking. It is something one time experience. Reach Coral Island and enjoy the different grilled sea foods- Prawns, Fishes, Lobsters, crabs. One should enjoy the chilled beer with the freshly grilled, finger linking Prawns served with sweet chilli sauce. Fresh fruits are also an attraction. Durian, the national fruit, provides a sweet burst in anyone’s mouth. One should not forget to taste the big Thai Guavas. Those are very big to cease one’s hunger and sweet to relish one’s taste buds. Back to Pattaya Beach and drive to Pattaya Tower. Pattaya tower has 53 floors. One should take the pass which includes one welcome drink and privilege to choose any one of the pathways (Coming down through a rope; kind of bungee, 2nd way is to have an open two seater wheels on the rope and 3rd is to travel on a cage comprising 5 people at a time) to come down. Take a walk to “Walking Street”. One can enjoy a drink and live music and end your day by an authentic Thai Massage.
Walking Street เมืองพัทยา จังหวัด ชลบุรี ประเทศไทย
The infamous, notorious and the place to be at Walking Street will leave you curious when you enter but disturbed when you leave. GoGo Bars, gogo shows and lots of music everywhere all enveloped in so much of colour and so much of light Waking Street is one long street full of clubs on both sides. Be it the ladyboys spanking men as they walk by outside spankies, or the men murmuring ping pong show ping pong show with menu cards flashing in their hand, lots of raw talent out on street for entertainment and bustling bars with pool tables, some local bands, wrestling rings and gogo shows, you'll get it all in this one long street. Bar hopping is the way to go out here when you come in first, c'mon you don't want to be drunk already before you see the entire place. With Alcohol so moderately priced, you will not spend much even if you are club-hopping. Leo their local beer and the Chang are sold at dirt cheap prices but somehow they all seem too diluted and take forever to get you tipsy. The Gogo shows seem all morally incorrect to go for and most of you will come out regretting funding for something like that, but most like me will anyways end up going in to know what they already know. ATTENTION LADIES At the end of walking street there is this street shop which gives you shorts for 20 baht, you wouldn't mind picking a few for yourself and everyone else or probably start a shorts business. And there is a big swing just at the end of walking street costing about 110 baht for a crazy ride of BIG SWING which will last for a few minutes but will take forever to forget as it is way scarier than it looks. Don't eat or drink before hopping on to it unless you want to throw up mid-air.
Jomtien Beach Penthouses Pattaya Chon Buri Thailand
Malee Jomtien Room Service a super-secret hideout located in one of the many by-lanes opposite the pristine and laid-back Jomtien Beach of Pattaya shouts out loud VALUE FOR MONEY. We booked this place about 2 months in advance from Agoda for the new years 2014-2015 and we got amazingly cheap rates and when I say cheap I mean dirt cheap. We were mentally prepared to stay in a shady place with pathetic loos and dirty sheets but when we landed there whoa whoa whoa were taken in for a big time surprise. The rooms were big, clean and well maintained and same goes for the loos (very important). The main backdrop is only that the bed is really hard, it feels like you are sleeping on a bundle of cardboards covered by white bedsheet so that's one thing you should be prepared for if that is what your place of abode is going to be during your sojourn in Pattaya. Breakfast is complimentary and so is the Wifi, all across the hotel and the owner of the place is just adorably sweet.
Sanctuary of Truth Pattaya City Chon Buri Thailand
Later in the afternoon we went out to see the Sanctuary of Truth. This is an intricately carved wooden temple at the sea side. They have preserved remains of Buddha here which is one of the main attractions. We managed to capture some amazing pictures here. We spent all of our evening here. Afterwards we headed to the walking street which is a lane by the beach road. It comes alive in the evening and flocked by a lot of people mostly tourists. This is the nightlife in Pattaya. We chilled for a while before heading to our hostel.

Amphoe Bang Lamung Walking Street Muang Pattaya Chang Wat Chon Buri 20150 Thailand
Eat, Shop, Dance and lot of other stuff here
Hotel Sunshine Garden Resort
Post the arrival by around 12.00 pm (which is our 1st day), we parked ourselves in Hotel Sunshine Garden Resort, a beautiful 4-Star property, and no activity is planned by MMT that day. It is for you to explore the place on your own, in your own way, the way you want to do it. We relaxed till evening and then took off walking. Not much traffic in Pattaya and drivers are extremely patient and respectful of the walkers on the road. Inspite of the green signal, they wait till people cross the roads and no honking is done even by the drivers at the back. I really appreciated this.
Alcazar Pattaya Chon Buri Thailand
Day1: Arrive at Bangkok (Suvarnabhumi International Airport. Reach the hotel and Rest. Get ready for Alcazar show and Big Eye Show. Alcazar Show: It is one of the best cabaret dance shows in the world. Beautifully dressed and gorgeous Trans genders dance gracefully on their toes. There are different show timings. Photography and Videography basically not allowed. A welcome drink is free with the pass. Once the show ends, one can get nice clicks with the performers in lieu of 50Baht. Big Eye Show: Big Eye Show is a sexy adult show. One should be bold enough to enjoy the show where the performers even try to gel with the audiences. Photography and Videography is strictly prohibited.
Tiger Park Si Racha District Nong Kham Chon Buri Thailand
3rd Day was utilized by visiting another attraction point Sri Racha Tiger Zoo. This is far away from Pattaya, on the Bangkok – Pattaya Highway, around 50 miles from Pattaya. So, this might as well take a lot of time, such that you won’t be able to come back to your hotel before 3.00 pm. This time, the lunch & dinner is to be managed by you and the evening is free for your own things. Alternatively, they suggest you 2 shows, Alcatraz or Russian Adult Show. Alcatraz is fine for family but not the Russian one. It is a one-hour nude show, all Russian ladies, showcasing their bare bodies with sexual acts, seduction, trying to create different, extreme fantasies for men & women… essentially enacting that on stage. Looking at the overall mindset, customs & traditions Indians have, I am not sure how much Indian ladies will be comfortable at this Russian Show. Phone & Camera is not allowed. It costs not much. But yes, the ladies are TERRIFIC. Extremely beautiful !
Nong Nooch Village and Tropical Garden Pattaya Thailand
Nong Nooch offers a delightful experience for travelers seeking for nature and cultural beauty. We totally recommend this place for the Thai Cultural show, the Elephant show and its beautiful botanical garden. Apparently, Nong Nooch's botanical garden is considered to be the biggest and most beautiful in entire South East Asia and we couldn't agree more! Tip: Take a tour to Nong Nooch Village by yourself as we mentioned earlier, the group tours are always in a hurry and you might just miss a beautiful place if you go with them.
Mini Siam Pattaya Chon Buri Thailand
Built in 1985 as a research experiment Mini Siam seems to have thrived. Getting down to the mundane specifics of transportation and entry fee, it is quite nominal. For an adult foreigner it is 300 Baht. It is open from 7 in the morning till 10 at night. There is also a food pavilion inside for hunger pangs. It is located just opposite to the Bangkok-Pattaya hospital. What with it colorful flora and fauna and little notes on the origins of the miniatures, it has the feel of an outdoor museum without the pomposity of culture attached to it. For kids, it is really fun. For a kid at heart, it’s still fun with a dash of knowledge.
Coral Beach Pattaya Chon Buri Thailand
After a heavy breakfast, a thrilling & exciting day awaits us. It's a day for excursion to Coral Island. A 30 mins ride took us to the designated pier. Here comes the exciting moment. A speed boat ride over the ocean. The ride is quite bumpy but exciting. The entire day at the island is to explore of your own or to relax. Live barbeque foods are available at affordable cost. In evening we came back to hotelDay-3
ibis Pattaya โรงแเรม ไอบิส พัทยา Pattaya City Chon Buri Thailand

Areca Lodge Pattaya Chon Buri Thailand
Took a Taxi to 2nd hotel Areca Lodge for about 200 baht.Hotel Review: Booked 2 rooms for 2 nights and we had a wonderful stay. A little trouble interacting with the staff in English, but they were helpful & also we didn't require much assistance. Room was really well-made, clean beds, clean bath (with bath tub), complementary bottle of Water (the ones kept on top of the mini-fridge). The safe was big enough to hold Laptop. Hotel is right near all the action, but is quiet enough for a good night's sleep. Used 1 out of the 2 pools & they also have a Gym. Breakfast was awesome with plenty on the menu. Mike shopping mall is hardly 5-10 mins walk away & if you go through the Mike mall, you'll get Pattaya beach & Walking street on the other side exit.Areca Lodge is located right where all the action is. During the day, Pattaya streets are like any other street, but it’s a whole different story during nights. We went for a stroll; the roads were filled with great eating joints. And obviously lots of massage parlors. Mike mall was a 5-10 min walk away and if you go right through the mall, out through the exit on the other side, you reach the Walking Street and can see the Pattaya Beach.Evening 7:00, had booked VIP tickets for the Alcazar show and it was quite good – great sets, wonderful costumes & nice performances. 1st day in Pattaya went well.Next day was for sightseeing, lots to do but very little time. Booked a tour with the Hotel itself and went to the Pattaya View Point (awesome view of entire Pattaya), a Buddha temple and then to the Gem Museum. Evening went to Central Festival mall (where we got a fish pedicure) and Mike mall for some shopping. Pattaya night market is near to the Central Festival.Pattaya has a lot of other things to do: Ripley’s believe or not, Mini Siam, Nong Nooch gardens, Temple of truth. Best way to get around Pattaya is use the special local taxis called songthaew (How to use: http://wikitravel.org/en/Pattaya#By_songthaew).*** Day 4:
Sriracha Tiger Zoo Nong Kham Chon Buri Thailand
Day 3: Early Morning we head towards Sriracha Zoo. It is a nice place to spent time with the wild life. Apart from Animal or Bird watching activities, various shows are there to entertain the tourists. Shows like Crocodile Show, Tiger show, Elephant Show and Pig Racing are the major attractions. One should not miss gazing to the Scorpion Queen, Take photo with the Cubs and Baby Alligator. Driving back to Pattaya City, I already booked a slot in the Thai Cooking Class, “The Happy Home”. One can learn the authentic dishes of Thailand with the great Masterchef Lom and Warne. A certificate will be issued once one complete the 20 Authentic Thai Recipes. So go for it!!!
