    I guess I might be a troll, although I really don't know what that is - something to do with SocialTedium probably

    Quite why folk think Pattaya is any worse than any other Thai resort is mystifying. Irrespective of where you might be, farang will always be a second class citizen to be creamed and reamed at will and made the target of avarice and opportunist theft. Thai food is pretty much the same tedious choice countrywide, the weather is universally hot and sweaty, the sewage and infrastructure is pretty much medieval everywhere, and the Thai themselves reject social interaction with farang in most parts of the country unless convention or greed compel a fleeting exchange.

    Thailand is what it is, a cheapish, hot, shabby tropical third world country and there it is.

    It's Smeg for sure, I don't mind a week or so in Jomtien but the crowds soon become a little too much for me and I bugger off to the more laid back islands. That said, I am so done with this infernal fecking winter and I am looking forward to some warmer weather in June. Half thinking of sodding off to Jomtien and BKK for a week at the end of Feb, for once MIAT has decided to price tickets at something close to being reasonable

    There's been an outbreak of measles and some other illnesses that I presumed had gone with the Victorians- I'd just rather be on permanent vaccination, really.

    It's better than Hua Hin to be fair, that place does my head in- a retirement home with a beach attached.
    BTW, you love jellyfish infestations,right?

    Pattaya like any place is what you make of it. Although Pattaya can be a place where fading white males facing the final approach into God's airport can convince themselves they are still a hansum virile man, safely ensconced on a bar stool with their fellow bar flies as they are surrounded by a few twittering nubile young women trying to get into their wallet.
    Away from the seedy side there are places not unlike an other part of Thai suburbia where one can go for a stroll unencumbered by calls from ladies of the night. A round of golf and an intelligent conversation over coffee with the less alcohol infused.Then a pleasant stroll home to sit on the balcony with a good book followed by cocktails at six, a good meal and an hours distraction lying between the thighs of ones' recently retired bar "cashier" Issan princess.

    Your comment however is soooo wide of the mark in this case as to be just plain dumb.

    Maybe it's me that needs to 'apologise' sarcastically, as I might have forgotten that.

    Of course the actual point is that smeg's just trolling and his 'argument' is ridiculous as well as being extremely worn.

    Still, it's something to post about, I guess.
    I don't know this Smeg bloke, but imho Pattaya can be paradise just like any other place, though it's down to the individual to make it so. What can't be disputed is it's great start over many other places with facilities and infrastructure offering multiple and diverse options for the expat.

    Someone pointed out the pros and cons; these should be weighed in value over numbers, which takes us to the bottom line with farangs doing just that and moving in not out.

    Plenty to moan about, and nothing wrong with a hefty rant now and then, but we're here and staying, so even if it's not paradise with clouds and harps, each has determined it to be overall better than where we were.

    I've heard with some of the more seasoned wenches it's like throwing a rolled up newspaper through the doorway.

    Are you a queer?

    You seem to have a compulsive need to believe my wife is a man.

    Oh, or is this another expression of your lumpen, lower class oafish self?

    You must be a real hoot at tea breaks when it rains too hard and you take shelter from your ditch digging.

    Well let me tell you this Sausage Arse,

    You told us your wife's name was Walter so I suppose it's quiet normal to Assume he is a man.

    And he refers to her/him as his wing'man' so that's a bit of a tell.
    Maybe his missus is half and half.

    Yeah, that's definitely a strange term for a wife.
