Access to supermarkets and or Mall

No car

Maybe old listings, i see new ones on facebook for 20k now, a friend lives there and is getting kicked out as doesn't want to pay higher rent of 18k+, depends on sea view etc

I lived in View Talay 6 for two years, 26th floor on the Walking Street side.  The condo was beautifully furnished, rent was 24K.  I left because the landlord wanted to raise it to 30K.  That was 10 years ago.

And the exchange rate was at least one third higher than today. Still you get a beer downtown for 70 baht 🤗

The location of View Talay is good, but the noise is not.  Every weekend now there is some event or festival on Beach Road with late blasting music and activities.  Ok for a holiday maybe, but I would never live there.

Like others have said, 1,000's of places.  Try looking at Grand Avenue and the other condos around that area.

Wow 30k, was that a 2 bedder and how big was it? If that's a 1 bedder that's a ripoff, especially more so for 10 years ago.

The smart ones live in Central Pattaya for the convenience to everything, all within walking distance 😎😎

Not sure what criteria you base that on, please share.

I'm on the darkside and walk to everything, I literally have chilled shopping mall with tops etc, at my front gate. restaurants, dentists, doctor, bars. 

 

I don't have these things that close to my front gate. But I understand where you are coming from.

I have Mom & Pop shop 300 metres away. (Just gotta beat the soi dogs off after nightfall.)

Soi Khaotalo, another 200 metres off (and more beating of soi dogs.)

Easy peasy.🙃🙃

Not sure about that... many seem to want to get out of town after some years. I always though those remaining in Central Pattaya were those who didn't want to drive and could be seen walking down Arunothai with a shopping bag early morning, and had the odd meal from a 7-11.

To each his own, I got tired of living in the middle of a city so choose to live on the outskirts (Wongamat), can be at Central Festival in 20mins/80b with Bolt + we get little to no flooding here.


Somebody mentioned Grand Avenue, suggest they might want to dig out the YouTube videos of when the car park floods there.

Yes the script is already written

It's inevitable! In that location I give him no more than 3-4 days before he's got the first one holed up in his condo. Hope it's not a crazy one though, cos that location is a jumper's paradise.

Moonlitehill in Pratumnak is ideal, no floods there, close to baht bus, beach is good, local bar scene.10k condos.

I have convenience to everything, apart from go go bars.

Is their something I am missing? (go go bars excepted.)🙃🙃

 

 

Yes, you are missing a lot. You can't have a seaview from your room, you can't walk to the beach, you can't walk to Walking Street, you can't walk to all the 3 big shopping malls on 2nd Rd, you can't have 10 baht Songtaew rides, no need to have a car or motorbike. That's just a few things, but there are more than that 😉 Oh, and pick up and girl and tell her you live in the middle of nowhere and see if she will go with you lol

It's a great place if you want to live in the middle of a very noisy red light district and don't need sleep. And big floods there - no more need to visit Venice.  And then the air quality👍👍👍. Don't just rent there. Buy something there.  Lots of people want to move away.  So a perfect time to buy.

Flooding occurs darkside, central, maybe Jomtien also but not Pratumnak
