    A Newbie Looking For Beaches

    hi everyone!
    im happy to find this forum!
    im heading to Bangkok and possibly Pattaya next week and im wondering about a few things,

    1. in Bangkok itself are there any beaches? if so, where is a pretty nice one?

    2.Also, i read that in Pattaya is not too far away from Bangkok. how long would it be around and whats the best/affordable way to get there?

    3. I also heard Pattaya has a lot of street girls. since im going with my wife that wont matter. do the people in Pattaya hassle you more for your cash or is it pretty common everywhere

    4. Is it possible to snorkel or scuba-dive in Pattaya or Bangkok? is so, what is say a regular outing per person cost?

    sorry about all the questions!! just nervous about the trip since its our first time thanks!

    1.No real beaches in BKK

    2. Pattaya's not that far about 2hr by car, are you flying to the new airport ? its closer to Pattaya. Easy to get from BKK to Pattaya by Bus sorry can't give you details cos I always drive

    3. Not so much street girls most are in bars and you wont be hasstled if your not interested. Pattaya is pretty hastle free IMO

    4. The beach in Pattaya is crap, Jomtian a bit better. There are a few islands of the cost for a day trip that are supposed to be allright but for real beaches, crystal clear water ect head down to Koh Samet about an hour away
    I have more than the average number of arm and legs

    Good advice: Jomtien is just a bit further on. Fewer beer bars, nicer beach.

    This is the wrong time of year for diving in the area of Pattaya. The season doesn't start for at least another month, but can vary.

    As for transportation advice, can you give us the exact date of your arrival? The new airport opens the 28th of this month and it seems you are arriving just about then.

    I agree.

    If you are coming with your wife then head for somewhere better than Pattaya. Koh Samet, Koh Chang, Rayong, Cha-am, HuaHin all have a better beach than Pattaya

    In fact, if you want to dive this time of year you'd best go to Koh Samui or one of the nearby islands. Better weather, better visibility there during the monsoon season.

    hopefully the troll remark wasnt towards me, coz im not

    this "Koh Samet" sounds much better. how can i get there from Bangkok. we are on foot and have no car. is there like a Central Station or something for buses or trains?

    also..

    ill be arriving on the 24th, so will that have any affect as regards to the new airport and all? im leaving on the 28th though, hope its not a hassle leaving

    yes i have, and the search led me here. whats your point? i just joined today and i get one member calling me a troll for some reason, and now a comment from you. thanks for the nice welcome to your site!!

    if i was a troll, there would be a hellava lot you'd be censoring right now

    google doesnt help my question about the new airport. when i arrive, it'll be on the 24th. but leaving on the same day the new airport opens. would that be a big problem ya think?

    Just give the poor guy a chance.

    I dont think he is a troll. You cant call most newbies trolls all the time.

    LH and IM I think you missed his other thread 'Where can I get a fake degree made?' which terminated in a torrent of abuse consisting mainly of the word 'F**K'.

    Very schoolboyish.
