    What place is the most like Pattaya/Phuket ?

    I went to Borocay in 2015. That reminded me of Koh Samet. Not bad but I want better. Motorbike rent was kinda expensive for shitty bikes.

    Fuck. I should just hop over to Pattaya. Can't fucking decide

    If your sole interest is mongering, I'd say Angeles. But it's pretty awful really, not a shade on Pattaya.

    The first time I went to Phuket I thought it was amazing.
    Then I went to Isaan numerous times.
    Then I went to Phuket again. And realised what a shithole it is.

    No. You joined forums and then realized it was hip and cool to bash places.

    It's people's default. Every single place on planet earth has been called a shithole by somebody. St. Barts, the Maldives , Hawaii , Phuket and yes , Pattaya

    The Swiss Alps, the Canadian Rockies , Amsterdam , Istanbul. They've all been called shitholes by somebody

    Pattaya offers something for everyone no matter their taste.

    I live in suburbia and rarely go to the bright-side bar areas.

    In fact it is easy to avoid the seedier areas for those that want to avoid this scene.

    The only real negatives are - 1. There are no decent beaches with surf and the water quality is terrible.
    2. The traffic is becoming difficult to negotiate but it is still a lot better then Bangkok's traffic congestion.
    3. The occurrence of police road blocks is annoying.
    4. Because of massive growth of Pattaya infra-structure is falling behind the services required.

    When you have money , places like Pattaya are a good place to temporarily escape reality.

    Phuket and Pattaya are not alike at all. Hence negating your whole thread.

    On the other forum you said you were married for 5 years.

    So is this 2nd or 3rd fiance? Does she know about your mongering habits?

    Fuck off Willy. For someone who enjoys the motorcycle lifestyle , Pattaya is hard to beat. Where else can you rent a big bike , get drunk and rat race around at night with other motorcycle riders ? Do you know how liberating that this is ?

    I've been to Panama, its not a shithole. Much cleaner and safer than Pattaya.

    It's also not in South America.

    After growing up in the suburbs of N.America, there is something holy about breaking as much rules at one time as you can. Pattaya is the best place in the world to do this

    Panama (/ ˈ p æ n ə m ɑː / PAN-ə-mah, / p æ n ə ˈ m ɑː / pan-ə-MAH; Spanish: Panamá IPA: ()), officially the Republic of Panama (Spanish: República de Panamá), is a transcontinental country in Central America and South America

    It's a total cluster-fuck there right now, they're trying to get a few sports bars open but basically there's only a few restaraunts open at the moment. There's doubts any of the gogo bars will ever open again (the Mayor is against them and this is the perfect excuse) but even when they were open pre Covid they were a horror show. Even big gogo bars in Makati are being demolished now like Plan B and Kojax, the fun police and Covid look to have killed the mongering scene over there forever as far as bars go but I guess it'll go on to some degree using online apps and social media maybe..
