I am writing this review as we loved t so much we went back three times to this wondeful place yes there are a lot of Gogo bars and strip joints however if you go to London you dont have to go to Soho Windmill and you can go to lots of other places of interest well Pattaya is just like that you take it ot leave it !!
We stayed at the Asiawan Hotel down on the Naklau Road area which is about 10 mins to the Busy downtown Area of Pattaya we went into town most days as once you have seen one bar you have seen them all same tacky loud music same gyrating young girls swinging themselves around posts sad to see you learn to ignore it as we did ....in the town we were able to shop till we dropped bartering is the order of the day and its great fun doing it as well some of the things we bought were really good quality and we picked up 100s of Dvds for peanuts we had a portable dvd player with us so we tested as we bought we didnt have any problems all worked and still do food is just awesome always made fresh and so healthy fresh fish and salads & fruit galore we ate well drinks are also cheap ..for sight seeing we went on a boat trip down to Hua Hin where the King takes his holidays beautiful sandy beaches and some fantastic Spas we had so many treatments done I felt great for a few months after returning our best treatment was havng our Teeth Whitened by laser fab and at 30 Pounds a steal we have had ths done each time we have been and its lasted we went to see the Elephants in their natural Habitat and they were delightful we had a ride into the jungle for the day and stayed in a treehouse which was awesome overlooking the Ocean it was heaven on earth ...the Golden Budda was a sight I will never forget people from every corner of the planet had come to offer thanks and gifts ....the ride on the open motorised Gondola type boat down the Chopraya river was like being in the films it was hair raising to say the least the best part was seeing all the boat people that actually live and work in their houseboats it was like a little village all packed in together their washing hangng from boat to boat all came out and gave us a wave they were selling fish and fruits and handmade goods very very cheap and we had some fresh fish cooked at the boatside and we were spoilt it was deliciious we didnt have problems with the food out there wether it was from the street vendors or the top eateries the markets were great try taking the Nana skytrain which takes you to the end of the road Terminus to us there is a market there that they reckon would take you three days to get round its an eclectic mix of old and new and if you are into anything old regarding American Vintage clothing you will be in Heaven we got label jeans jackets shorts etc...for peanuts..the Fake designer goods are sometimes really goood or really really bad so just take time to look
Top Tip is if buying more than one of the same item even if it s packaged insist you open and look at it before the biggest Scam is too let you look at the best one so you buy then when you buy more the goods are so bad rubish by that time you will have packed it away and handed over you money so check every item first f they dont want to let you do this walk away there are hundreds of sellers if there is nothng wrong ask yourself why ???
