    Try to speak in Thai language

    Try to speak in Thai language, you'll get a big smile for it!!!
    It's a difficult language but with the next simple words you'll get far:

    hello = sa-wa-dee
    Thank you = korp-kun

    If you use this words (it's not the right spelling, but how you pronounce it) with the locals, you'll get a friendly laugh and many help.

    Especially when you are in a restaurant, a hotel, a cab or touristic attraction you'll get more help.

    This event is over a few days in april the hotest and dryest month.......it is normally over a few days but once in Pattaya a few years ago it went on for 2 weeks........
    Basically the whole country erupts into big water fights............you will wherever you are get wet in doors or outside...........don't bother changing into dry clothes you will just get wet again even battles rage while driving down the road and accident rates go up.
    Its mad but fun and if you think it will annoy you after a while then miss this time of year or stay in your hotel room.................thats exciting!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The big white Buddha

    As I rode my bike into the the small town that run's between Sai Kaew beach and the Na Dan pier I ended up at this Big White Buddha.
    It sits in the grounds of a temple complex that was having major renovations done to it while I was there.
    Some Monks have small huts to live in here, and there is a pond in the middle with fish in it.

    ...near at the pier. I saw him with his paraphernalias..I thought in a moment, are there fishis in there too? Well, he never got one and the photo is him when he passes by. An early one to catch a fish!
