What has changed in the past 10 years? (Try to stop laughing)

Recommended Posts

I left on short notice 10 years ago due to an seriously ill parent. I was living in Jomtien and 2nd Rd. there was partially finished. I haven't returned since but I have scheduled 2 weeks in August. I'm sure many things have changed but if someone could just go over the major changes,I'd appreciate it.

I'm going through the forum now to begin catching up.

Crikey, where to begin? 

Second Rd finished, there are lights at the Thrappaya end and at Soi Watboon.

The former is a very busy junction. Place full of Russians right now. Airport bus still stops at the park by Foodmart. Actually you should use Google Maps and have a good look around,

Thanks. I was just doing that by looking at/for some former haunts!  The turnover rate is still what amazes me. That bus was convenient as I lived in View Talay 2A. I'm in my late 60s now,so this may be my last visit as travel wasn't the fun and adventure it once was. Nothing planned but my hotels so far and I rarely planned beyond that except for a few ladies scheduled for the 1st few nights. Thanks again.

What has changed in Pattaya in the last 10 years??? Wow that is more like a novel than a forum post.  Rather than a bashing or promotion of Pattaya and Jomtien i'll leave it IMHO as the text book definition of " same same but different". LIke it or not this is the new Pattaya and i don't see the direction reversing itself back to the " good old days". It will really be up to the Op to see how he likes or dislikes Pattaya 2019.

Personally i prefer it back in 2001 when i first discovered the place and in 2003 when i moved to Pattaya but i still love it here and for my needs and lifestyle suits me well. In recent time i have had to spend more time back in lala land and can't pack my bags and get to the airport soon enough to get the hell out of L.A. and back home to Patts  so for me i guess it is still pretty good 🙂

Everything and Nothing is probably the best way to explain it.

Development has gone crazy, mix of people will be different, exchange rate!, bars gone, new bars up, girls 10 years older, smart phones......................

But there are still loads of girls and bars, the weather is the same, beer hasnt changed, food is still good, so enjoy 😉

No but the Beach has, very much so. Although you may need to hurry here before that unimproved drainage has that away!

I live in Florida,so the beach bar is pretty high.  This was my view 1 day after the last hurricane passed in Sept 2017. Come to find out the golf course behind my house had blocked 2 drains on my street-bastards (who are now facing lawsuits).

Baht buses are still 10 baht. Soi Bukhao and LK Metro has expanded exponentially bar - wise. In fact, I tend to stay around that area now as Beach Rd / Second road hotels have lost their lustre, and you can cut through to Sois 7,8 and Central festival from Bukhao in an easy 5 min walk. Sois Chaiyapoon and Lengkhi are also popular for massage parlours and cheap guest houses / restaurants. Soi Honey is also a good massage venue.

As mentioned elsewhere, everywhere you walk there is some cunt with a camera, either vlogging on youtube or just taking photo's. WS is terrible for it, LKM getting progressively worse. Speaking of which, Soi diana seems to be dying a very slow and tortured death for some reason. Papagayo still has a massive Gin menu though.

JP bar has gone i'm told, late night Ibar and Insomnia nightclubs for off duty girls, but Insomnia seems to be full of vest wearing middle eastern musclemen for some reason. Lucifer, Red Car (gullivers - the one with the Vette on the wall) and 808 above Candyshop offer the nightclub experience, also Miami on WS might be worth a look if FL action is your scene (and at 5k a pop plus BF longtime, why wouldn't it be lol?)

Plenty of GGB's, prices covered elsewhere on the forum. Windmill for good fun, hands on as well, Babydolls same same.

Beer bars abound, still offering happy hours and many in the Bukhao area offering 2 for 1. Plenty of live music bars around, almost one on every busy Soi.

Daytime fun:

More Gentlemens Clubs, MC Taxi drivers are now fairly knowledgeable regarding locations, just show them a google maps pic.

Soi 6 is still busy but has effectively been ruined in the opinions of some (myself included) as the Nightwish group have opened numerous bars along there with the same kind of approach, loud music, lots of girls rinsing newbies for drinks. Even the managers get in on the act. However, Ruby club and a few select others are still open for naughty, behind closed doors fun. Nighshit are expanding their operation into Chaiyapoon as well apparently.

Still numerous daytime bars open along Beach Rd, Tahitian queen A/C still a welcome change from a hot day, PBG offering half decent food but the service sucked big time last I was there, 45 minutes for Tom Ka Gai...

Multitiude of massage parlours in the Chaiyapoon, Lengkhi / Honey area, most offering happy endings. not sure on prices though, or quality of the girls.

Some decent restaurants in town, Grottinos for a good Italian, plus a few specialist places opennig up (Wine Bistro, craft beer joints).

Other stuff:

Terminal 21 is a massive shopping centre, but never been there.

A few Starbucks / Costas opened if you want a coffee and a read of the paper.

Motorcycle hire still available cheap, but make sure you are legal, the fines are getting ridiculous.

Loads of Hotels to choose from ranging in price and quality. LK group are very good, Eastiny and flipper are the budget end and look very tired. Sabai group again are mid range but again need updating.

At a price that is effectively a little more than for 2 at some beer bars , it beats the GGBs hands down, yes, but I often wonder what the attraction is for the bars, does it simplify the workload for them, or do many people forego the second one?

I've always thought that the 'attraction' for bars like Triangle and Billabong is that they put bums on seats and make their money on the high volume of the sales. I doubt that many people forego the second one. The only feedback I have seen from people who have been caught out is that they will not return, so it's something that people do once.

I think there is a problem for smaller bars in the area who cannot generate the volume but end up charging a lower price than they would like to because of the lower prevailing prices in the area.

Completely destroyed Soi 6 would be a better description but I disagree about it being busy. Its empty visit after visit when I have been albeit does give you pick of the crops as such

So many guys I know now refuse to go to any of the bars because of their dislike of the big headed Flowers geezer

Yep, I guess it is hit and miss and probably time of day etc. Like many I won't spend a red cent in any bar connected with him.

Looking at the map, I see Carrefour on Klang is now not Big C Plus, but Massive C Plus. 

Big C -Extra it says on the tin. This is a very popular Mall despite seeming a little out of town. Great exscape from the afternoon heat, which we got in spades at the moment. The Big C supermarket retains some of those hard to find things that it had when a Carrefour, cheeses and hams an example. Busy place. Popular food court too. Undercover parking which is still free. Easier to get to than Central Festival Beach Rd which seems to cater more to overpriced clothing and electronics.

I was probably thinking back to my grades in college in the late '60s/early'70s.

I used to stop at the food court for a bite before heading to Mass at the intersection of Sukhumvit and a block north.Also,if you're walking as I was,as soon as you make a left,there was a very good shop that sold towels and whatnot for the bedroom. I bought several there.

I arrive 22 weeks from today in case any of you were planning a "Welcome Back" party in my honor. Dinner my 1st night and a few other nights will be at Tsunami Sushi (not a buffet in the strictest sense) Buffet on 3rd Rd. As an added bonus,it's a very short walk from the hotel.

Beach road is a shadow of her former self.

I loved making out on the couches of the old closed faced bars of the 6. The babe would get it rock hard - then it was BJ with pussy caressing time. Fuck the moron and his PC forum.

More construction.

However; the aforementioned greater Bukhow zone is teaming with massage pussy. A shower with the gal, 20 minute foreplay massage - followed by a BBBJ can be had for a 400 - 500 baht tip - which was the going rate 10 years ago.
