Travel Bangkok to Pattaya, Thailand
Sawatdikap! Welcome to Thailand....
Travel ke Thailand memang mudah, apatahlagi segala kemudahan yang disediakan benar-benar mesra kepada pelancong yang datang. Justeru itu, Me & Prof Raduan pun memulakan jejak ke Thailand..walaupun telah banyak kali ke destinasi pelancongan di Thailand seperti Chiang Mai dan Bangkok. Ini adalah kali pertama kami ke Pattaya yang terkenal dengan lokasi ketenteraan US sewaktu perang menentang Vietnam.
Melalui ekplorasi tersebut terbukti Thailand memang expert dalam industri ini....meh kita tgk apa yg mereka ada di Pattaya dan BAngkok !!! jeng!!!jeng!!!
Petikan dari Pengembara sebelum aku!!!
I am one of those who never knows the direction of my journey until i have almost arrived- Anna Lowise Strong
Like all great travelers, i have seen more than i remember, and remember more than i have seen - Benjamin Disraeli
Travelling is not just seeing the new, it is also leaving behind. Not just opening doors also closing then behind you, never to return but the place you leave left forever is always there for you yo see whenever you shut your eyes-Jan Myrdal, the silk road
Been there, done that. Every Pattaya web site and book will tell you our history but we will tell you the Truth !
Two out of three tourists who come here extend their stay. People come to Pattaya and they don't want to go back home ! There is a large expat community here because of this. It's a great place to live because of the lack of meddling laws that seems to be the norm in Western Countries. People want to enjoy their lives. Please be forewarned that because of the lack of these same Western Laws there are many who take advantage of it. Let The Buyer Beware & Watch Where You Step will keep you out of trouble most of the time. Talk to the locals, reputations of local business are well known to them.
Pattaya also provides plenty of on land recreation, a number of excellent 18-hole golf clubs, while other sporting options include tennis, horse-back riding, go-kart racing, shooting, archery, bowling, snooker...the list goes on. There is even a motor racing track. True to its city status, Pattaya, unlike other beach resorts, shows no slackening of pace after sundown. South Pattaya, popularly referred to as "The Strip", is packed with all kinds of restaurants, bars, discos, and shops. If South Pattaya is a trifle overwhelming, those seeking quieter opportunities for shopping, dining and evening entertainment will not be disappointed. Such has been the development of the resort in recent years that full amenities are now to be found throughout Pattaya which extends well inland from the bay.
Shopping possibilities are as varied as Pattaya's other attractions. Souveniers, handicrafts, gems and jewellery, ready-to-wear and custom-tailored clothing, paintings and more are all to be found along "The Strip" and increasingly at smart shops and department stores throughout the resort.
