It is okay to come back with questions or whatever.


How long will you be in Phuket or Pattaya?

Pattaya is cheaper to do but Phuket has better beaches.

Pattaya has great value hotels, more kinds of restaurants than you could throw a stick at, shopping for markets to malls, convenient for Bangkok, convenient for trips out e.g. Koh Samet and Koh Chang.

down the coast are some reasonable beaches.

there are also theme parks etc etc.

There is a sex industry but as a portion for what is going on in Pattaya these days, it is an increasingly smaller part.

Don't expect to see just people from your home country. Nationalities and families from all over the world come to Pattaya - so if you are a xenophobe it is not for you.

There is no need to get involved in the sex trade in Pattaya - those who think that Pattaya is all about or only about sex either don't know the place, have only visited the red light streets and have their own prejudices and hang ups about sex or other people having sex.

Hi Soe

What sort of beautiful do you want? I would never in my wildest dreams describe Pattaya as beautiful but there are some pleasant places to visit when out of the main area. Phuket, although a good deal more expensive, has many more areas which could be described as beautiful.
