Pattaya Pleasure

13 Aug

It was a normal Friday morning. I sat in front of my computer writing, blogging, and thinking about where the day would take me.

My roommate Emerick was gone, and Kevin was sleep.  I was antsy to get out, and  I craved a day to myself.

I decided to head out alone.Packed an extra shirt, shorts, and headed out. Just me, my backpack, and public transportation

I headed to the main bus station where I found a ticket to Pattaya beach, 2 hour bus ride, for only 113 Baht ($3.75).

Why not?

A long ride on the bus allowed me to see areas not yet seen. Being constantly around the city, I had almost forgotten how beautiful of a place Thailand is.IMG_3119

As I arrived I was ready to head to the beach. I had decided I was not going to stop  until I saw the sweet sands of Thailand.

That quickly failed as I came across my first vegetarian restaurant.

Spicy “duck” curry with Pineapples, grapes, and a side of Brown rice. Nothing short of perfection.

A scooter and food stand all in one is not at all unusual in Thailand.

Finnally I had arrived at the beach

Clear waters with temperatures that would make you feel as if you were taking a bath are abundant in Thailand.

Although the water felt great, the influx of tourists and corporations has led to the detriment of these beaches.

Drinking out of a freshly cut coconut on a beach in Thailand is quite a feeling.

It was the Queens birthday, and the streets were filled with people and a parade in honor.

Possibly the coolest Bus I have seen to date. I have come to the conclusion that my next car will be a bus.

Pattaya beach turned out to be quite beautiful.

    Beautiful Pictures. I’ve been to Pattaya many times. It is sad that it’s become so touristy and polluted! It used to be even more beautiful, and much more natural. I lived in Thailand, your post gave me a little taste of home :).
