Connecting main roads are backalleys and smaller roads, often dotted with pubs and sleazy massage parlours. If you're a woman, do not walk alone in day time or night. Pretty dead in the day. Nearly every pub and nightclub in Pattaya have hookers so if you really want to go to a nightspot to chill out and go dancing with friends, well too bad! These nightspots are chock full of prostitutes of all kinds - teenagers, to quite matured, waif thin ones to obese, men, women, transvestites and transexuals. Hookers tend to be locals. Male patrons tend to be Westerners.
Much of Pattaya is laid back. Streets are cleaner than in bigger cities. However, further away and when viewed from a high altitude, the city skyline looks like this.
Along main roads there are often pushcarts selling cooked food ready to eat, like noodles, rice dumplings, fruits and deep fried insects (locusts, beetles, roaches). In restaurants the food is usually different, more Thai delicacies being served like tomyam, phad thai, and papaya salad. Papaya (or mango) salad is not what you think. Finely grated strips of UNRIPE papaya or mango with strange looking vegetables, is usually served with RAW seafood, like this raw crab pictured. Tastes just like seawater!
- Pros:Laid back lifestyle, nice friendly & kind locals
- Cons:Prostitution is rampant, not very suitable for family holidaying with young kids
- In a nutshell:Very lovely place indeed, maybe somewhere to retire to.
