Look to the East (through the lens of my new Nikon)

Just some photos taken with my new toy from a recent trip to the Eastern Sea Board - Pattaya, Sattahip and Sai Kaew Beach.

Arriving in Pattaya!

Million Stones Park is a touristy spot you can go to for 300 baht if you are a farang and 120 baht if you are Thai. I know that 300 baht is not much, but the double pricing in Thailand gets old as I live here. This bird would not accept my Thai married Visa in my passport as proof that I reside here so I snapped a picture of her "stealing" 300 baht from me!

Out of respect for the ole' Thai flag waving in the wind, I did not put a fight over 300 baht......

For 300 baht, you get to see a croc show, some giant catfish, some caged up animals and some old rocks and some flowers. Hardly worth the 420 baht to get in for the 2 of us.

We got out of there and I met DD over at the Sea Falcon Resort.

We both took some pics of this guy jetting about on the waves.

Nightfall was approaching so DD left and took the nice weather with him.

Not sure if he did not like the sam-ich I bought him and he cursed the nice weather or it was just another rainy season evening.......

The next day we went to Khao Chee Jun. This is a golden Buddha in the side of a mountain just outside of Pattaya. I have heard two stories. One that is the etching is made entirely of real gold and the second story is that just the nipples are made of gold. Either way the place is guarded by the Navy, so don't think of going and stealing the nipples.

Nearby this Buddha, I located another one of my favorite tourists attractions - a farang diner!!! I new by the name Mc's Diner! Inside I found David from England and he whipped us up some burgers, fries and cokes for 350 baht. David has the diner, a campground, an ATV park, elephant treking, carriages pulled by ponies and a tour company. He located a stones throw from Khao Chee Jun and just before the Silver Lake Vineyard. Mc's Diner : 089-888-4340 and 089-990-0937.

The Silver Lake Vineyard is a nice spot to eat, take some photos and check out some flowers and grape vines.

Great pics, nice camera! Is it a big camera or a little compact one.

You didn't see anyone doing this on the beach in a buggy did you?
Worst thing about Thailand is I cant find a decent place to go kite buggying

"Sai Khao beach in Sattahip" Where exactly is this. I find Sattahip very difficult as I keep being waved away by the Military. Does anyone know which beaches you can get to and how? Preferably show on a map. Thank you. Peter

When you are coming form Pattaya, Sai Khao beach is before the military base. There are military guards at Sai Khao, but you just have to get a pass from the small office before the checkpoint. Those midget military police will try to flex their muscle when you park to get your pass and return it by directing you here and there and telling you where you should park. A bit arrogant, but they gave up when I combined Dutch, English, German and French into the same sentence and I kept telling them I was off to Pattaya and smiled and laughed at them. Finally they got fed up and walked away!

When all else fails when you are trying to find Sai Khao or any place in Thailand, have your lady stop and ask a motorsai taxi for directions. If they know where it is, you will have a 50% of finding it. If they don't know where it is, they will still give you directions and you have a 100% chance of getting lost!
