    The rate on the street.

    Merry Christmas from immigration.

    The guy who did my letter at Kasikorn told me that immigration were only accepting letters from 1 day before. No problem for me as I always get the letter the day before, but it's good to know that they are being as consistent as ever.
  4. Thanks Atlas. Following your observations about how quiet immigration was on Christmas Day I decided to do my retirememt extension today, rather than waiting until the New Year. I arrived just before 11am and was finished after about 10 minutes. Picking up the passport tomorrow afternoon.

    Books -- what are we reading lately?

    Probably Kursk, the largest tank battle ever fought.
  6. Got to agree with that. My balcony is navel height and I am no short arse. I'd have to be very unlucky to trip over the balcony. Given the combination of tiled floors, water and alcohol consumption I am surprised there aren't more incidences of people falling in bathrooms and smacking their heads on sinks, toilets, basins etc.

    Pretty sure they were still working on it when I walked past the other day. There was still some boarding up but couldn't tell how close they are to completion.
  8. Handy for TQ and the afternoon GGBs on 13/1 and 13/2. Maybe an acquired taste and very hit and miss but another option to take a look at.
  9. Bars on second road like Bodega and the Wonderful bars. Maybe take a stroll down 13/1 and 13/2, smaller bars but can be fun
  10. Probably not as many ladies around in the Buakhau beer bars in the afternoon compared to Nana.It depends what you want.Soi 6 might provide the nearrst equivalent. Plenty of places to sit outside watching the world go by but with the option of decent looking female company as well. I think Pattaya has far more daytime options than Bangkok, some livelier than others.
  11. This is the final post for today and covers the stretch up to Rabbit Resort. In some parts they have done virtually nothing although they have dismantled the toilets on the beach. Getting towards Rabbit Resort they are at least working on the drainage. I wouldn't recommend booking a room at Rabbit Resort in the early part of high season. I doubt it will be very pleasant sipping a cool beer overlooking a construction site.
  12. In front of Pattaya Park they have completed the road and drainage along about half of its length. There's still a lot of work to do in front of the rest of Pattaya Park although they have dug up the original path but haven't made much progress with the drainage. Further along they have made more progress with the drainage. I also noted that they have not destroyed the mature trees on the beach this time. They are using some of the vacant land between Pattaya Park and Rabbit Resort to store materials.
  13. The work started near the Sea Rescue Centre by Pattaya Park. The border line of the end of Phase 2 and Phase 3 which will go around the bend in the path towards the bottom of Pratumnak Soi 5. The work in front of the Sea Rescue Centre is pretty much completed.
  14. I think Bazle started a topic on phase 1 of this project but I could not find it so will open a new topic. Phase 1 of the project from Jomtien to about 100 metres south of Rabbit Resort was completed at the beginning of December last year. Work on phase 2 commenced during June and runs from the end of Phase1 to the Sea Rescue centrenear Pattaya Park. I haven't been down that way for a while so a walk last week provided a good opportunity to take some pics of the progress that has been made so far. Fot my own convenience I will divide this report into 4 separate posts. To start with I thought it might be useful to post a few pics of work done on Phase 1. The sign at the start of Dongtan Beach, (apologies for not getting the whole sign in). The new car parking area. The start of the pathway, still traffic free between10 am and 5 pm. I am not sure if this work was part of the project or if it was commissioned by the hotel. .Further along the path.

    Thinking about the question again; for the late games, Richman Poorman on soi 9 Jomtien Beach Road could be an option.
