    Yeah OK then I see the issue. Pattaya is too high class for you

    When will you be launching your 'hypocrite of the year' thread, Mr. Class Act?
    Post a link were you can prove your allegations.

    You are making stuff up and throwing insults as is your modus operandun.

    Avoiding the question and derailing the thread.

    You really are a sad sack of sorry shite.

    Speaking of which, I'm surprised we don't have a sharky thread on the go...

    Walk down any Pattaya street at any time of day and look at the flotsam in the beer bars or sat outside the 7 in their wifebeaters.

    It's this "type" of person that gives Pattaya the "type" of reputation it has; hardly the tuned in world travellers you speak of.

    It's a shithole, where the worst of humanity convenes, and no amount of golf courses is ever gonna change this.

    ^Yes that's what you'll find anywhere the bars customers are wearing wife-beaters, have unkempt hair, teef that look like a vandalised grave yard, faded tattoos, and stink. You won't find those people in the bars I generally drink and eat in though, tourists generally don't know or go to such places.

    Let's agree to disagree.

    No let's agree that you only know Central / South Pattaya and have never been to where locals who aren't interested in the sex scene go. Out if interest, how many Jomtien and Darkside pubs have you ever been to?. Can you name a dozen or so for me that you know well, just to prove I'm not debating a topic that one of us knows fuck all about.

    I also hate the bar areas of Pattaya and only venture there only when I have to.

    Most of the other farangs I know who live in Greater Pattaya also avoid the bar areas and are enjoying living in the more rural residential areas of the Province.

    I do not debate with anyone about whether Pattaya, well the areas the Global media targets, as being a shithole as it is.

    Those that live in the other areas of Pattaya will promote the place as a far more preferable place to live when compared to most other major cities of Thailand.

    Ok, let's not then.

    The point was Pattaya; not your local where you've finally found one of the few places in the shithole that isn't full of chavs and skanks. You've got the likes of LoyToy there for fuck's sake.

    You know, I know, and the rest of Thailand knows that Pattaya is a shithole. Dress it up as much as you want, but you can't put lipstick on a pig.

    There are loads of affluent areas in Pattaya.

    The issue comes down to the kind of company you want to keep.

    Exactly. There's a huge demographic here who live really good lives without ever setting foot in the whore bar areas (unless they want to of course, in which case nowhere in Thailand does a better sex-industry). They couldn't give a flying fuck what clueless tourists on a 1 week holiday aboard a rented scooter do with themselves because those sort of people will never know the full range of what's available here so there's no chance of having to even see them, let alone keep company with them.

    But of course, the clueless tourists in this thread can't understand this because they know no better.

    Back on topic, with the patters slant,

    So, just how many fat females are running, walking or crawling around Pattaya? A slew, but they are the tourists.

    As Simon compared Thai to Burmese; I'll comment on the Pattaya scene. After the beach review of the fat, overweight, and oft times obese, tourists gracing the seashores of Pattaya, (just how do you cram that much fat into a bathing suit?), well, the Thai girls are downright petite.

    It's all about perception, comparison and the yardstick you're using.

    I lived in Pattaya for three years from 99-02 in the Mabprachan area, so I know what you're talking about.

    I was probably around the sleazy areas a couple of times a month, driving past them in daytime and maybe a couple of times a month for a few beers and games of pool with friends at an outdoor bar.

    None of what you've said negates hal's points. The sleaze is too widespread for it to be called just a sideshow. It's a pit. That you avoid it doesn't mean it isn't there.

    I am not interested in getting into the discussion about what Pattaya is or isn't.
    What I would like to know is WTF is the "Darkside" that is referred to in post #184?
    I have read the name on a few threads and am totally clueless as to what it refers to.
    Could some kind person please enlighten me.

    Thanks

    Yeah, and apparently the sores have spread there too now.

    Girly bars around the reservoir seems a real shame.

    Had some great nights just drinking and chatting and drinking some more.

    ’Wish this place was more like town’ was not something I ever heard.

    ^^^They were always there. I use to drop a load off at the Butterfly bar in the 90's on the way home from golf at Siam CC.

    It's great for a family holiday. The Mercure has an amazing kiddy pool near the beach so it's just a short walk out to the beach or to dinner.
