Dragonflies...it is the season for them. Get them over my pool and many now, sometimes 2 stuck together in sexual multi-winged Chinook impersonation dipping its tail .

I ride a bike from the bottom of the hill from Pratumnak to the beach and out to Na Jomtien where the road such as it is, ends. You can get around to Sukhumvit or 2nd Road with some zigs and zags from the end. There are two seafood restaurants at the end that are popular, not for me because I don't like seafood but maybe a good choice for foodies.

Baht buses beyond Chaiyapruek are few and far between but I see a handful. Very nice for riding, almost no traffic. The beach out that far is mostly rocks and boulders.

There are a lot of sois and alleys and a couple roads between Beach and 2nd Roads that are interesting to explore. At the Sukhumvit end of 2nd Road there's a field where it's common to see cows and sometimes goats.

You can get back to Pattaya from the other side of 2nd road via Chaiyapruek or Bun Kanchana towards Theprassit. More cows, few vehicles, but way less hectic than the major routes.

...and can also stop at Blush (formerly Rioja) G-Club along the way - I used to walk through there quite a lot when I was staying in Jomtien...

If you go further down the coast (away from Pattaya) after a couple of kms there is a stream that is a base for a few small fishing boats and a restaurant that specializes in local seafood. It didnt have any farang customers when I went there.

I asked them several times to improve their signs on telephone poles from the Bun Kanchana alleys, but they never did and when I encountered 4 mangy angry street dogs on the street one before theirs I swore off ever going there. 

Also if you're out on bike or scooter there are less frightening routes (than Sukhumvit) back to Pattaya via the Pattaya bypass that goes by the little railroad station. Though you have to cross Sukhumvit once which is its own adventure.

It is some years ago but I recall I could not get into the Residence Garden, or had to move out for 3-4 days because he was fully booked. He offered me The Boathouse, his property in Jomtien and I took him up on it. I was bored witless there and getting back and forth was a complete drag. How is it in Jomtiem now, I see a lot of flights straight into U-Tapao from Russian Cities I have never heard of.

I used to think that the one hour baht bus ride between Naklua and Jomtien Beach was a major attraction for the Russians.

I believe that Jomtien gets a lot of business, at least on weekends, from Bangkok Thais.

Went to one of the open air sea food restaurants.  Food was good, the parking lot was large and full.

Yes, many Thai families will travel from BKK to Jomtien just for a day trip - they'll hang out on the beach and eat and drink and yak and sometimes even go in the water...

They come from somewhere.  During the day these restaurants look deserted.  At night, they're packed.  What surprised me is that some of the restaurants will actually deliver meals to people sitting on the beach, across the street.  They must do that all the time.

Dont go to Ko Larn anymore preferring to send out of town visitors without me . But remember some good times buying raw seafood, duck at the stand and they would bring a small grill  and a large bottles of Singh to our chair at the beach   JS, what part of Jomtien? I may give it a try.
