Pattaya Part 1: Bad Girls Go to Pattaya

As the t-shirts proclaim: “Good girls go to heaven. Bad girls go to Pattaya.” My old friend from England, Giles, who got me my first job in Thailand, and who had been living and working as a financial consultant in Bangkok for 5 years when I moved here, once described Pattaya as “Bangkok-by-the-sea.” To be more specific, it’s Bangkok-gone-bad-on-steroids-by-the-sea...

Pattaya Part 2: Last Resort

Pattaya is a sad Thai paradox, because in some ways it is a microcosm of the modern and commercialised Thailand, prostituting itself to the West, but on the other hand, there is very little truly Thai about it anymore. It’s as representative of Thailand as Benidorm is of Spain... Read More >>

Pattaya: a nice weekend retreat...or a brothel by the sea?

Sure you should be able to just walk into vairous hotels and get a room. I'd be cautious of the person that told you it would cost less though. Facts are facts. If you walk into a place with luggage asking for a room, the desk is going to look at you and know you don't have a room up goes the price. With all the guarantees on the internet of giving the lowest price, be smart and book before you get there. If nothing else, you can always check around the next day looking for cheaper rooms and leave the one with reservations earlier if you find a cheaper room. Prices of hotels aren't that great in Thailand so the couple baht you save isn't going to be that big of a deal.
