Where would you suggest, that offers the same amenities, cost & proximity to an airport? asking for a friend :whistling:

Koh Chang, hands down. Rustic, friendly, half price for the girls compared to Pattaya. Airport 12 kilometers away.

That would mean an extra flight and more time travelling.

Guess he is happy with Pattaya! I lived in Pattaya for 15 years and never once sat on the beach! may have met his "sweetheart" though :wink:

the place is definitely dying

 

walking street isn't even a sleezy red light district anymore, just a sightseeing attraction full of chinese and indians walking back and forth taking photos

 

people joke about it turning into a family tourist destination but it probably will once the bars die, obviously not for western families though (excluding russians)

Your talking expat. Remember these guys are tourists and not looking to save every satang and have beers on 7/11 steps which is purely the domain of desperate expats scratching out a living 

 

Got to think like a tourist dude and only then will the penny drop 

But they are though, aging pensioners chasing the same dying dream with progressively less spending power.

You'd think after 30yrs coming here he'd have found somewhere nicer than Pattaya, somewhere with a nice beach, view and turdless sea to gaze at perhaps.

Didn't notice any turtles in Pattaya.

Well that's true and in that case very few would be paying hookers period.

 

I was replying to posts that said bar fines have had their day and on limited time which I doubt due to the cashed up sex tourists

None of you seem to get that the whole thing is dying. There are so many ways to meet women if sex if what you seek that sitting in a shabby bar buying lady drinks and listening to <deleted> music.

OK, but I would pick Angeles City over PP.  Exchange rate is very good and lots of cute young girls.

AC is like a mini Pattaya with no beach. But, no tourist buses, Chinese, Russians , whatever seems to bother people.  

There's a sea plane that goes to Baretto.

Great beach and go-go bars.

 

I used to holiday there all the time, but the air fares were too high Vs Vietnam (8,000bht Vs 2,500bht retn)

In Angeles are many Japanese and Koreans. And you have to pay the girls before their service what can lead sometimes to complications I was told. Also apart from the Field Avenue there is not much you can do. In one of the shopping malls you can enjoy a hamburger at Jollibee or American Fastfood at other restaurants. And compared to the Jeepneys the Baht busses in Pattaya provide luxury transportation. Only the Tricycles are better than the motor bike taxis. Why don't we have have Tuk Tuks in Pattaya? Could be a big business.

2001. The baht was running about 44/45 to 1 and things were still very inexpensive.

Those were the days. I havent been to Pattaya in 5 years, I prefer to keep my old memories. You can never go back.
