B)  Pattaya (ENG) 

09/02/2018 – 13/02/2018

 

After our short stany in Bangkok,  we hit the road to Pattaya,  one of the biggest and most famous cities in Thailand.

Let’s go see some beaches 😀
Here was our planning :

  • Rest
  • Nong Nooch Botanical Garden
  • Floating market
  • Big Bouddha
  • Pattaya Harbor
  • Walking Street
  • Temple of Truth

 

Nong Nooch Botanical Garden

Located in the south-east of Pattaya, the botanical garden is full of flowers and surprises, like dinosaurs and is worth seeing. The garden is so big that they provide shuttle (not free).

This got me thinking about a French humorous (called Guignols de l’Info), in which american generals are discussing about diplomacy with Obama. One of them thought it was one the biggest dinosaurs which ever existed, with a long neck and a fat ass! No, that is diplodocus, dumbass!

Floating market

On the main road leading to the south of Pattaya, one can find a floating market. Kind of a tourist trap, but it’ss worth eeing to check it on the bucket list :p

Walking street

We thought that we could find redlight disctricts all over in Pattaya, but as a matter of fact, the Walking is pretty small (only 1km long). There other nice streets though, worth seeing, like Soi 6 (which is a lot better according to me).

The evening we spent in a Ladyboys bar 😀 Some of them have a suprisingly convincing body Oo

 

Temple of Truth

Located in the norther, part of Pattaya, this temple is entirely made out of wood and it’s still under construction (1981 – 2050). This was one of the most beautifil temple we saw so far! More information over here!
