    Pattaya Things to Do

    Looking for a good area in Pattaya for couples or families? Go to Jomtien Beach area. It's much cleaner and far less hookers and go go bars compared to the main Pattaya beach and walking street area. Always a good idea to check a room before renting it.

    Bangkok Things to Do

    I usually love tours to old historical sites, temples etc. But Ayuththaya disappointed me!! I had read much in the forum and on the net regarding this.

    Bangkok isn't a beautiful city, and the Baiyoke Tower isn't a beautiful building.

You can take pictures of yourself driving a tuk-tuk, a hot air balloon,...

  • Sri Racha Tiger Zoo

    Pattaya Things to Do

    Words cannot express my outrage at this place. I understand that different cultures handle things differently but this place is completely unacceptable. The tigers are held in a cage that is too cramped and has almost no shade. They are very underweight and malnourished. The food people can "shoot" at them is rotted and the tigers will hardly touch...

They have feeding times posted outside and it's worth taking a position early in the tunnels if you want to get some photos as the diver feeds...
