shopping for less..
I enjoyed shopping here because there undies are so inexpensive..these are branded ones and I bought a lot since its less the price I normally pay when i buy it somewhere else...
and they have a lot of pretty and sexy bikinis too for a cheap price.
Songthaews (PICK UP WITH SEATS AT THE BACK) are the general mode of transportation around Pattaya if you don't have a car/bike.From the bus station to your hotel around Beach Road is about 40 baht. Any other time prices change depending on if you look like a tourist or not .Sometimes I've been charge 10 baht for a trip and then get on another and get charged 20- 40 baht. A "rip off" but that's how it is in Pattaya.Songthaews are available regularly throughout the day & night ,they will take you to where you want to go....just press the bell when you want to get off

It's all Go Go around here!
It's good to just walk through here sometimes and watch the sprukers trying to get you to go in thier bars.
There are also many things for sale on walking street, as well as lots of music coming from the bars and many interestng people to look at.
Judging by what I saw my tip for best disco would be Marine but go late.
Avoid Tony's disco as they are so money hungry they take your drink before you finish it and try to sell you stuff in the toilets.
My tips for best Go Go bar would be Coyote's or the Tiger Go Go.
Pit Stop for steaming ahead
"Chill Out Zone"
Think about a small bubbling township, think about the beach , think about no hold barred entertainment........and you have this Place popping up in any travellers itinerary when your destination in South East Asia.
I ventured into this city ( in absence of any demographic figures, I tak ethe liberty to call it a City ) without any plans, without any hotel booking and without any known contacts. At the end of 5 days of Pit Stop, I only have to say ....You can do the Same.
If there was a place which makes a tourist be on himself /herself this is the one and the presence of a continous coast line with white surf only makes it a must visit spot.
Day 1 : Land up after a 1-5 hrs of drive from Bangkok , and it takes just two hotels round and you get an accomodation on the 4th floor of a centrally located comfortable hotel at just 1200 Bhats. If that was not enough, true to the thai style you have a whole lot of hotel staff coming forward to make your itinerary for the remaining days. Having had a late night at Bgkk I decide to take it easy and just relax. The short spurt of rains in the evening only supports my decision to stay in door. But as I was to realise in the remaining days, Pattaya is best enjoyed outside your room ; )))))
