Pattaya Walking Street
Best live music stop in Pattaya! Rocks often with guitarist Lam Morrison. Lam used to be the Jimmy Hendrix of thailand, and still is a great musician. Great place to come with friend and service is awesome. I don't smoke, but my buddy could not finish a cigerette without the waitress changing out his ashtray. That made us all laugh.
Equipped with full stage, great DJ and the latest sound equipment featuring Thailands only fully restored Hammond organ, we are host to the best selection of international and Thai musicians.
Opening Hours - 8:30pm - Late
Check website to see who is playing tonight Have to keep your shirt on, and in a beach town like Pattaya, it blows. But the music is awesome
Cheap and delicious street food in Pattaya
One of the best things about Thailand is it’s impossible to be more than a few feet away from some great food…everywhere you look there is a stall, cart or cluster of plastic stools on the sidewalk and someone selling noodles, soft drinks or snacks.
The food really is quite safe….why I can only guess; the food is prepared, cooked then reheated, a high turnover ensures there is no time for bacteria to grow. In the film “The trouble with Mary” the lead actors bemoan that there is not enough “meat on a stick” …they should come to Thailand; everything is stuck on a stick… sausages, chicken livers, satay, fish balls, eggs, squid, fish…the list is endless. Sweet or savoury the food is delicious and cheap… about 20 baht a go. My favourite? “Pok-Pok - Som tam thai, a spicy papaya salad of peanuts and dried shrimps, you will see someone bashing away at a pestle and mortar, they are most likely making some form of “pok-pok” as it is called from the sound made making it. Variations can be extremely spicy! My least favourite? Malaeng or maeng, fried insect; I still can’t bring myself to eat these. Pattaya has street stalls everywhere, near the bottom of Soi8 at the entrance to the old immigration office is a great kebab stall, he also sells BBQ sticky rice. On the lane that links Soi 7 and 8, a lady who has 3 tables set on the side of the road, she does fantastic Thai curries and salt egg salad… they never seem to close I had a great meal there once at about 4 am. They have a small EL menu on the wall. On Central road there's the sweet mango and sticky coconut rice stalls about half way between 2nd & 3rd roads. 50 baht buys you a Styrofoam boxful of heaven. If you venture to Soi BuaKhao market, visit the duck noodle stall by the 7/11 on Sth Pattaya Rd…it attracts scores of people. Noodle soup is about the only thing Thais eat with chopsticks (and spoon) because of Chinese origins? Noodle stalls offer great value, with pork, chicken or Beef mixed into various kinds of noodles. You can have it as soup or “dry” too! SomTam Thai!
This place with many lake and "Wat" was founded in 1978 for commemorate King Naresuam the Great and King Taksin the Great. It's about 16 KM from Pattaya. Not far from there you can see a big Buddha image in a mountain.
If you have time (and not scared of high buildings) - give it a look.
