Is Pattaya so bad?


Recommended Posts

I got a taste of Thailand playing

cricket in the Chiang Mai international 6's in '93 and spent a few days in Pattaya.

Went off back home and did what needed to be done until '06 and started partying in Pattaya 3 or 4 times a year.

Came back in 2013 to live.

East Pattaya, Soi Khaotalo has so much to offer. Wine, women, song....if only they were open🙃🙃.

Why do people enjoy bagging Pattaya,

.......bad experiences?

Many expats diss Pattaya because they want to appear to be above the sex angle of living in Thailand. They think that living in Chiang Mai etc absolves them of their own delving into the darker side o

Soi dogs are a problem all over Thailand. Not unique to Pattaya 😁

Pretty hard to beat the combination of things Pattaya offers.  Near Bangkok and the main international airport.    Lots of accomodation to suit any budget.  On the ocean with plenty of beaches around

I lived in Jomtien for years, then last June moved to Pattaya to be closer to my friends. I'll be moving back to Jomtien at the end of my contract and taking a Bolt when we want to (and are eventually allowed to) get back together for a few suds. For me, riding a pushbike is what I do, and Pattaya just doesn't offer the same quality of roads. The convenience of being closer to Fascino/Makro/Big C et al isn't worth the trade-off. I wouldn't say I'm bagging Pattaya, instead my druthers are Jomtien.

There is a Makro near Jomtien and a Big C not far from that, so you don't need to move to Pattaya to be near those.  Not walking distance but minutes away by scooter.

Probably experiences related do drunks, brawls, bad traffic, overcrowding before Covid.

For me I was told if you become more entrenched into the Thai culture and the type that has their eyes opened and not with tunnel vision it will eventually get to you?  I know guys living here have a very narrow view of life, they eat western, play western, socialize western live on the Darkside and in town bars, girls, drink that is it. If that is the case you luckily narrow to how much you get bashed but if one isn't as lucky that is why whenever you log on to Asean or majority of Forums in regards to Thailand you read and will see majority have a negative view or as many say bashing of Thais. 

 

No one including me came to Thailand wanting to feel like that but after a while the constant beating bashing it wears on a person it doesn't mean we hate the place or its people I'm glad Asean is around to let up vent and express ourselves. That is pretty much the same where ever one is the grass is never greener some where else?😂 

 

Whenever the pressure gets to me I'm just happy to have choices one of them is going out eating western, then visit a number of A/C gogos and relax and view the steaks like in a butcher shop?  Should I have a steak or go cheap for a hamburger?🤑

I lived in Pattaya for about a year but much prefer my Isaan village for day-to-day stuff.

I love to visit Pattaya 2/3 times a year, pre covid and will continue once the bars have reopened.

I enjoy catching up with my friends who stay there.

Yes.

Easy to be negative, please tell us the wonderful things about the Thai place you live. 

 

John Grisham says you should never ask a question you do not already know the answer to. 

Ah well.................
