Pictures from around Pattaya

Recommended Posts

Didn't see any thread dedicated to general pics people take while out and about around Pattaya. Feel free to add your own. Here's a couple from today.

North end of Bua Khao the muck in the storm sewers is getting removed, by hand.

Sukhumvit end of Pattaya Tai now has a super sized 7-11.

The Bua Khao muck removal team has moved their base of operations a bit farther south. Should provide smelly entertainment for day time Bua Khao drinkers over the next couple of weeks.

I'd add some pics, but all my pics of Pattaya are old.  Some from 2006 and some from around 2010-2011.  I guess I should use my camera more.  Next time I'm back, I'll try to take more pics.  If nothing else, I guess I'll always have my phone in my pocket.  Those kind of pics are better than nothing, I guess.

As I walked along Beach Road this afternoon, I came across two teams power hosing the pavement.

Looking at the pavement after it had dried, it really didn't look that much different. However, the objective seemed to be to get rid of the loose sand by washing it into the drain at the side of the road. I'm sure that will do the drainage system a lot of good!

It'll keep the drain cleaners busy after they've finished on Soi Buakhao!!!

If it is sand they would do better getting it back onto the beach!

I wandered over to New Plaza last night. Liked how they had closed off the soi and set up three stages for music. The disappointment was no bands, only karaoke on each of the stages. Still the vibe was good and people were having a good night out.

Yes I took a ride down Beach Rd yesterday, pain in the arse with all the slow moving traffic and workmen busy painting the town red. Now I have 3 times to  avoid central Pattaya for a number of days, Christmas and New Year, Songkran and Chinese New Year! Bah humbug and Duck feet!

Would be good to see some old pics, I've got a bundle from the last fifteen years.

OK, I'll try to attach a few:

From the early days of Soi LK Metro.  The others just from around the area.

Bloody hell when was that early LKM photo taken?. I notice there's not Devils Den (Or Hell Club as it was known in the early days) open, and that's got to have been at least 12 / 13 years ago (unless the old grey matter is getting mor grey).

If it's ok with forcebwithyou I'll see if I've got some random pics of Pattaya from a few years ago and chuck them up here.

I think the earliest LK Metro pictures I had were from late 2006.  So that would be 121/2 years ago.  I’m not sure if I remember a Devil’s Den back then.  It may have come later.

Always good to see Pattaya of old pics. Earliest pics I have are from my first trip in 2008. Here's one from Loy Krathong that year. They used to have a stage set up at the entrance to WS for the Loy Krathong traditional dance.

And here's a pic of the "Hilton waterfall" from Oct, 2013. Can't remember how many times they repaired that section only to have it wash out in the next heavy rain.

Soi 8 in better days

The destruction of the bars on Soi 2 - Just sat and reflected on the good times many guys must have had there, how many girls worked there and the drinks drunk and bells rung!.

Soi 1 looking like a wasteland back in 2013 I think. several disused buildings including a Thai karaoke joint, back then Soi 1 was considered a bit out of the way...

I always liked the design of this small building, never knew what it was or who owned it, there was always some work going on there though.
