  1. Hi all members of PattayaTalk, My name is Kanokwan Tangchitnusorn, I'm a Ph.D student of the College of Population Studies (CPS), Chulalongkorn University, and currently I am doing a Ph.D. dissertation about the international retirement migration (IRM) of Westerners in Thailand, in which, the research is about the study of the migration-to-Thailand decision-making process, well-being, assimilation, and impacts of Western retirees in Thailand. As part of my research, I have to distribute around 400 questionnaires to Western retirees in Thailand nationwide who came from developed countries in the Western world. For Pattaya, I sent the hard-copied version questionnaires to Pattaya Immigration office, and already collected a good number of it. However, I think the on-line distribution of the questionnaire is also a practical and savvy approach. Hopefully, the research results will become part of policy recommendations, which aim to constitute mutual benefits for both retired expats and Thai society as a whole. So, if you want to be part of the study, please go to http://goo.gl/forms/d0M1ldM2H7 and then submit your information. In addition, please be informed that Information related directly to you will be kept confidential. Results of the study will be reported as total picture. Any information which could be able to identify you will not appear in the report. Thanks a lot for reading this post. KANOKWAN TANGCHITNUSORN, Ms. Ph.D candidate at College of Population Studies (CPS), Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand
  2. Just had an email through from Etihad, with another 6 day sale on finishing Thursday next week. Return flights to Bangkok in September can be had for £382!!!!! Plenty of other dates to choose from.
  3. How Pattaya can change in the space of a few months. These were taken in October, and the last time i was out here was only back in June, and how much it has changed that short space of time. The sale was so good, it sold out!!!!.................................... How things change in such a short space of time...................................... The beach is such a fucking mess now. Dont know how people can sit around this south area of the beach all day............................................. Competition must be quite fierce between these 2 giants on Walking Street...................................
  4. Its a dogs life................................................ It was cold today........................................... A leftover from all of the flooding????...............................................
  5. For anyone that hasn't been to the Grand Palace in Bangkok, its well worth the money to spend a few hours wondering around the grounds of this palace and temple. Don't let any touts outside tell you its shut, as it is open 365 days a year, unless civic or royal engagements take place. Photos taken at the tail end of September 2015
  6. Just a few shots of cruising down the Chao Phraya river in Bangkok at the end of September. And yes, it was raining on and off all day long.
  7. Love it or hate in Bangkok, one of the most popular places to visit in this great city is the Khao San Road area. It can be a great people watching area, and when the sun sets and the lights come on, its quite something to see. Unluckily for me, it was raining this day, so i didn't hang around to long here. The first hotel i ever stayed in in Bangkok back in 2002...................................... Still love the old 60's style buildings in this area..................................... If your looking for that certain lucky number for your Thai lottery win, then Ratchadamnoen Road is the place to find. There must be millions of tickets on sale down this road. Just makes you wonder just how big the Thai lottery really is?............................................ The food of champions. Time to stop for a quick (late) lunch....................................... Then my camera decided to take a dump with humidity in the lense........................................... 5 minutes later and all is good again!................................................. What i like in this area is this little soi, Rambuttri Road. Just set slightly away from Khao San road, its more relaxed, more chilled, more quiet and not in your face, and though it still has some backpackers here, its not full of those "gap year, not going to wash my hair in a year and have dreadlocks" arseholes!! Some fantastic little eateries on this street too.................... Hope you have enjoyed the Bangkok photos. Thats all i have from this trip of Bangkok, next up will be the Hanoi photos.
  8. Well, i've been back from Vietnam and Thailand a week now, and this is the first chance i've had to get some photos organised for you. These are photos from my walk on day 1 around Bangkok. Started off on Sukhumvit, all along Ploenchit then to the Erawan shrine, down and into Silom, then back out and through Lumpini Park, up Wireless and back through Nana and to my hotel. I believe it was along where these benches are that the bomb was set off a couple of months ago............................ Armed guards all around the shrine now.................................. Boris cycles in Bangkok.................................... When you have you have to sleep, you gotta sleep. Although i think he was shit faced or wasted on some kind of substance!!!!!................................ Now wouldnt we all like to dine at the "lady buffet".............................................
  9. A few photos of scene's in Bangkok, taken back in January this year.
  10. Its been awhile,but these photos were taken in January this year. Ive just been to busy to post these any earlier.
  11. Kind of like Marmite, you either love it or hate, and the same can be said for Khao Sanh Road in Bangkok. I think for me, the road could actually grow on me, there always seems to be something new or different down there, but i have to say i do like this road at night fall, when the sun is setting and the neon lights come on........................ All photos taken back in January this year. Its just been busy so far, and this is one of the first chances i have had to start posting photos.
  12. This is one of those walks that you have to do at least once when your in Pattaya. For me, i try to do this walk every time im in town, as its a great day, albeit a very hot and sweaty day, but the walk to the top is well worth it for the views. The views from both the Admiral and the Buddha make it worthwhile. The views are amazing from the top. All photos taken during my last trip back in January 2015.
  13. Taken during January 2015. Im sure that Khun Striderman has covered this more than enough times, but i just thought i would give my take on it.............................
  14. A couple of weeks ago, myself and one of our esteemed board members, Mr Bazle, took a walk along pretty much the entire length of Jomtien beach, mainly because in 13 years, i had never ever been to the beach area of Jomtien before. And i have to say, that i think there are a better standard of Beach babe's here on this beach over the beach in Pattaya. Without a doubt, this beach is worth another visit on a future visit.
  15. Just a few night shots of Walking Street, taken a couple of weeks ago over the space of a few different nights. You may notice some difference in the photos, as some were taken on my little pocket Casio and the rest on my Canon SLR. Enjoy...............................
  16. This is one of my favourite places in Bangkok to visit. Its just so quiet and so calm, its very relaxing in a city that never really sleeps, and that is so noisy and dirty. This place is an Oasis of peace and tranquility.
  17. I didnt want to thread-fuck Khun Striderman's excellent thread with my piss poor effort at taking photos on the beach, so ive started my own thread for the whales and babe's................................. Something for everyone hopefully. All taken on Pattaya beach and Wongamat. But without doubt, Jomtien is the better beach for viewing the girls, and that thread will follow shortly..................................... Photos taken 3 weeks ago.
  18. Wat Saket , more commonly called The Golden Mount in Bangkok. Is this the most natural highest high point in Bangkok?
  19. If you like to take your sauna's fully clothed, then this is the place for you. I swear it is so dam frickin' hot underneath all of that plastic, i just dont know how those stall holders can do this twice a week. Welcome to the Soi Buckoew market, operating twice a week on Tuesday's and Friday's. Located at the very end of the Soi, connecting onto South Pattaya Road, its quite easy to find. Just follow all the traffic........................... Everything from food and drink, clothing to shoes, plants to small animals. Bring the family, and the mother-in-law, its fun for everyone, especially your wallet. Parking could become a bit of a problem though....................... Mini sewing machines, the size of a stapler.......................... Whose your team....................? Virginal white anyone? Some stall holders dont seem to like you taking photos of their stalls. This lady was going berserk at me for taking a quick snap!! Which is strange, as most seem to actually want you to take a photo, and will even pose for you without asking.............
  20. One of the highlights of anyone's trip to Chiang Mai, Wat Chedi Luang is a beautiful old ruined temple, set right in the heart of the old city walls.
  21. I saw this on a Facebook post and it's so on the mark that I think you should all see it. I looked and found it was posted last year on Thaivisa, so it's been around for a while. Source http://www.thaivisa.com/forum/topic/685689-my-wifes-brothers-driving-is-driving-me-round-the-bend/?p=7109916 Every single one of these "rules" is observable daily!
  22. From http://bangkok.usembassy.gov/052314_thailand_travel_alert.html To read full announcement, follow the link.
  23. Ive just realised, that even though it was a year ago that i went to Krabi, i never actually posted any photos of the town area at all, even though i did promise a few members on some boards that i would do, so here, without further a do, i present photos of Ao Nang, Krabi. These photos were taken last year, June 2013. Part 1...... Part 2.........
  24. Sorry, I have no idea what the name name for this place is, ive always known it has Big Buddha Hill. Took a nice long walk up here a few weeks ago with BM Bazle. Down walking Street, around Bali Hai and the Marina, and then up the hill, around the Weather station and finally made it to Big Buddha. Its no where near as far as I thought it was, so no excuse for notdoing this walk again sometime soon. Enjoy.................................
