  1. Just an update for all Pattaya Talk folks. Le Pub is open selling food and soft drinks, but more importantly some great conversation to keep you sane. Ive posted our menu, it’s basic, but all food is home made. I’m particularly proud of our triple cooked chips (British style) they’re big and greasy but soft and delicious. We are showing sport as well. There is a little foot traffic in the daytime, so we open at midday till 7:00pm, check Google or Facebook for the exact opening hours. We have a couple of waitresses in every day if you want a little female company.

  2. Greetings Monkeywatchers, showaddy crap once more, and welcome to another month of Covid, so there’s bugger all to write about but nobody gives a shit as they won’t be back in Pattaya anytime soon. Well, let’s give it a go anyway. Four Thai men have been arrested by police for stealing metal drain covers, which they later confessed to doing in order to buy drugs. Police are now searching for drug dealers who accept drain covers as payment for their merchandise. The men were also given urine tests, though it remains unclear how this helped to progress the investigation. A 24 year ol

  3. Looks like time has run out for the group of beer bars and shops along Naklua Soi 33. Whatever development is going in there it will take up the entire length of the soi and half the land in between two soi's. If there were more feet on the ground here, this would make for a good post in the where was this taken topic.

  4. Pics from this morning's ride down to Na Jomtien and back. The new park in Jomtien. Think it's going to be more of a mosquito magnet than anything worth visiting. And a new water park under development near by. And looks like more development planned for the future. Certainly no shortage of water in the area.

  5. Another long time Pattaya bar, Buffalo Bar is heading into the dustbin of history. Don't think we can blame it in on the pandemic though as the bar's decline predated the China virus. Construction update on Tree Town's Pattaya Beach Club. Not sure what this hole in the floor will be. Fountain maybe? Never noticed before, but most, if not all the bars on the south facing side of Tree Town have 2nd floor seating.

  6. I don't think you'll get many takers among the mostly aging Pattaya expat community. Or if you offer punctuation classes. 😉

  8. Soi Pothole is getting another temporary repair. Missed seeing this on yesterday's trek through Tree Town, but they're working again on the structure that has sat unfinished for years.

  10. Now that work has begun on the high speed rail project linking Don Mueang, Suvarnabhumi, and the U-Tapao airports, thought it would be good to have a topic to track the construction progress with photos. It'll be interesting to see how the area changes over the coming years. Project Description The Bangkok – Rayong High-Speed Rail features a 1.435-metre standard gauge track with capacity to serve a maximum speed of 250 kilometres per hour. It travels on an elevated route with a 300-metre tunnel portion near Buddha Mountain (Khao Chi Chan) spanning 193.5 kilometres. the rail connects wit

  11. The old Batman Disco is always an interesting site to photograph. Construction progress on the skateboard/recreation area under the 3rd Rd flyover. Once again 3rd Rd is a mess with digging going on to bury utilities. I don't think the Thais will ever catch on to the idea of digging up a road once to bury utilities with enough conduit placed for future use.

  12. Thailand is in the amber list.... test before you depart, isolate at home for 10 days, prebooked tests (paid for, not nhs) on days 2 and ?7/?8, but you can pay for a 3rd test on day 5 and leave isolation sooner

  15. By the looks of things, bars in Pattaya will be opening before Bangkok, and not for a while yet. Soapies are closed where I am so I’m heading back to Koh Chang for a few weeks. I’ll do a week on Koh Kood as well. There’s been only one covid case per day being detected in the Trat Province, very few tourists, and room rates are currently lowest I’ve seen. Escape to paradise. 🏝️

  16. Hi Guys. A couple of you early birds might have noticed that the site was down for 3 or 4 minutes.... So... I am going to give a nice long explanation on what happened later... after I get some sleep. It took me almost 2 days of full time work with almost no sleep at all to get this fixed. In short just so you guys don't go crazy with the speculation, it was a catastrophic failure of invision's auto upgrade script along with my dumb ass not seeing that there was an error message that cancelled the backup I took just before I hit the upgrade button. So ya. That happened.

  17. Yup, our plugins were turned off, and at least one of them are out of date. I did not want to turn them on while I was tired in case they broke something. Will get them back on today. Also, just got a quote of $250 for a fully customized theme with unlimited changes for a week. So I might just do that. Ill post a poll later asking for color suggestions.

  18. I didn't even know that it existed!! Imagine if, instead of spending money developing the fake Pattaya floating market, they used the money to develop this area !!

  19. Had a look this morning to see how the path along the south Pattaya canal is faring. For the most part the path is clear. Some sections had a bit of overgrowth, but was still passable. Other parts you need to duck low to get through. If the water was cleaner and didn't have the scent of a sewer, the canal would make for a scenic walk. Probably could have pushed my way through this heavy overgrowth, but didn't fancy having to pull thorns and ticks out of, and off my legs to do so. This is the short, upstream section east of the makeshift bridge.

  20. Wonder if it's because there is a duplicate of your board name on the forum. I'll pass that info on to the admin in case it helps them resolve the problem.
