Willkommen an alle unsere deutschen Freunde aus daspattayaforum

Every morning in Pattaya here is the chaotic scene with Para gliders criss-crossing the bay.

Bookmark the link so you can check out the view and the weather 24/7.

Pattaya is a city in Thailand, a beach resort popular with tourists and expatriates. It is located on the east coast of the Gulf of Thailand, about 100 kilometres (62 mi) southeast of Bangkok. Bookmark Webcam Beach Road Pattaya Thailand so you can check out the weather anytime you wish.

Pattaya webcam only shows you a small part of this great holiday location.  Pattaya is a city of extremes, anything your heart desires is available here, from fabulous five star hotels & restaurants to down & dirty backstreet beer bars offering sex drugs & rock & roll. OK, so we admit there is sex in the city but there is so much more to this wonderful seaside resort, four million tourists each year can’t be wrong. Only 90 minutes south of Bangkok airport and thousands of miles from stress.

Thanks for visiting my Best Pattaya Beach Thailand Webcam blog, this is by far the best web cam on the the coast. Please bookmark the link and come back again soon.

Spectacular Bangkok Sky Bars

May 22, 2017 by David Herd

Breathtaking view from Red Sky Bar

Spectacular Bangkok Sky Bars

Spectacular Bangkok Sky Bars

Spectacular Bangkok Sky Bars, I really doubt if any city in the world has as many amazing rooftop bar/restaurants than Bangkok. This photo is from the 56th floor of the Red Sky Bar located above CentralWorld.

Happy hour at Red Sky Bar

Spectacular Bangkok Sky Bars Generally as you can imagine Sky Bars are expensive venues, however between 5 & 7 pm buy one get one free is a good deal, for instance  a Jack Daniels or a beer is B360 or $10.50 usd, so getting 2 for 1 is a good value.

I rate Red Sky Bar 5 stars.

Spectacular Bangkok Sky Bars

At the Hotel Indigo Bangkok 81 Wireless Road, Pathumwan, on the 25th and 26th Floor.

I give Char a 4 star rating.

The amazing Bangkok skyline.

Spectactular Bangkok Sky Bars Open at 6 pm in time for the sunset.

 Char Bar walking distance to CentralWorld.

Spectacular Bangkok Sky Bars An easy walk from Char Bar to Red Sky Bar.

I rate Char Bar 4 stars.

Long Table sky bar

Spectacular Bangkok Sky Bars  Long Table sky bar Bangkok is located on the 25th floor of the Colomn serviced apartments in Soi 16 Asoke. Obviously not as high as many of the Bangkok sky bars but still offers an incredible view of this great city.

I rate Longtable 4 stars.

Cielo Sky Bar & Restaurant

Spectacular Bangkok Sky Bars Another spectacular venue to add to the many other “must do” places to visit in this great city. Located between Sukhumvit 69 & 71 only five minutes walk from Phra Khanong BTS station.

A small beautifully designed intimate restaurant

Spectacular Bangkok Sky Bars The Cielo Sky Bar & Restaurant menu caters to a variety of budgets and offers a small selection of well known international dishes. Try the simple Spaghetti Carbonara (250 Baht), the fancy Roasted Duck with Fresh Orange Thyme Sauce (320 Baht), or for those wanting to splash out: the grilled Australian ribeye steak (850 Baht).

Sirocco Restaurant & Bar

Spectacular Bangkok Sky Bars Sirocco Sky Bar State Tower Bangkok is one of the best rooftop restaurants bars in the world. In fact I really doubt if any city in the world has more roof top bars than Bangkok. I would certainly like to know if there is any place more spectacular than Sirocco which is located of the 64th floor of the State Tower building in Bangkok.

I rate Sirocco 5 stars.

Top floor Lebua Hotel

Spectacular Bangkok Sky Bars  Great location close to the Sky Train and the river ferries. One of the nicest ways to spend an hour in Bangkok is cruising along the mighty Chao Phraya river. The river ferry takes you up the lazy river for only B150 for the whole day. It is a great way to see many of Bangkok’s wonderful landmarks. A ticket to Chinatown is only B40, get off at pier number 5 at Ratchawong and walk 10 minutes up the road.

For a great room rate at the Lebua Hotel just book throughh THIS LINK.

Rawiwan (Lucknam) Thaikam @ Roof 38

Spectacular Bangkok Sky Bars  The lovely lady is the Roof manager, very friendly with a beautiful smile. She has worked at some other bangkok Roof bars and I think the 38 bars is very lucky to have her on the staff.

Brewski Sky Bar Radisson Blu Bangkok

Spectacular Bangkok Sky Bars Brewski Sky Bar Radisson Blu Bangkok on Sukhumvit Road near Soi 25 claim to be the only rooftop craft beer bar in Bangkok. I’m not into craft beers however an Asahi bottle was reasonably prices at B160, or $4.50 USD.

Pirate Chambre Excellent Bangkok Restaurant

Local Trattoria since 1997

Pirate Chambre Excellent Bangkok Restaurant

Pirate Chambre Excellent Bangkok Restaurant

Pirate Chambre Excellent Bangkok Restaurant at Chit Lom, a little hard to find the restaurant’s entrance located on the 3rd floor of the Maneeya Centre building, which directly links to BTS Chit Lom at the Siam end.

 Baked seafood entree

Pirate Chambre Excellent Bangkok Restaurant This tasty dish is prepared and served in a traditional snail serving tray.

This is a superb dish beautiful served

Pirate Chambre Excellent Bangkok Restaurant  This superb entree featured morsels of French mussels, clams & prawns, flavoured & baked with herb butter, cheddar, Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs.

If you lean closer to the screen I’m sure you will be able to smell the garlic. 🙂

An important message 

 photo Be a pirate a.jpg

This really is the best advice I can give you. 🙂

Beef Ribs

 photo Pirate Chambre 2.jpg Another dish cooked perfectly was the bone-in braised beef short rib in red wine sauce (750 baht),  slow-cooked until the meat became soft and fell off the bone, yet still retained a pleasant chewy texture. Notice the packet of baked garlic which was very tasty indeed.

A choice of vegetables

 photo 647f4e82-bc2b-4597-9e53-d1f0d442f1ff.jpg Choose the vegetables that you prefer with your ribs.

Here is my favourite main course

 photo Pirate Chambre 3_1.jpg The slow cooked lamb shank is absolutely delicious. 

Anyone for cake?

 photo 79f1fcfa-d065-4083-ada6-832624cc263b.jpg It would not be a proper Italian restaurant without cake. 🙂

In Bangkok you must visit some of the wonderful sky bars.

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

May 19, 2017 by David Herd

Beefeater Steakhouse & Pub

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants I’m highlighting all offer excellent Australian export quality beef as well as some other delightfull dishes. Above is the Beefeater located on Soi Diana near 2nd Road in Pattaya. You can enter the restaurant from directly from Soi Diana Inn, or from the Central Shopping Arcade off 2nd Road (across from Mike Shopping Mall).  Phone Number: 038-720-926.

Fillet Steak – ranging from 150g to 400g

Ribeye Steak – 250g

One of the things I like about Beefeater is the fact they offer fillet steak in a multiple of sizes so you can order to suit your appetite.

Beefeater Location

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

 

Opposite the rear of Mike shopping mall.

Toast Skagen at beefeater

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

The Beefeater owner/chef hails from Scandinavia which is a bonus for me as toast skagen is one of my favourite entres, in fact I sometimes drop in for lunch on the weekend & order two. 🙂

I rate Beefeater 4 Stars.

Patrick’s Belgium Steakhouse

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

Terrific restaurant in an arcade opposite the Beefeater. Excellent Aussie steaks and the best Oxtail soup in Pattaya. I’m with Greg Clee and Hamish Elton.

Patricks

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

The steak is always excellent, the only downside is they overcharge for wine.  I personally think the steaks here are better than the Beefeater, however one litre of house wine is grossly overpriced at B1200, compared to B700 at Beefeater.

Desert at Patricks

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

Always a delight & difficult to choose between the crepe & the Belgium waffles. 🙂

I also rate Patricks 4 stars.

Steak & Co Soi Lenkee

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

Only a 10 minutes walk from Patricks & the Beefeater, straight up So Diana, across Soi Buakaow into Soi Lengkee.

Steak & Co

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

I assure you you will search for a long time in Pattaya to find a better steak. Aussie prime beef cooked to perfection. They serve only the finest improted Australian Black Angus, Wagyu and USDA Prime Beef. Also a wide selection of Wines, Imported or Craft beer to accompany your meal.

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

Soi Buakaow just turn into Soi Lengkee.

Beer Babes LadyBoys Pattaya Soi 6
Beer Babes LadyBoys Pattaya Soi 6, it’s all here & only a short walk from my Condo, surprisingly I rarely go there. I find it too noisy & too many LadyBoys are there plying their trade. Sometimes however it is a lot of fun watching the madness with good friends and cold beer.

In fact in my opinion the majority are rather average. However this no way detracts from the fun & the non stop action in Pattaya’s most notorious Soi.

Three Aussies & one Norwegian

I can’t keep up with these wild lads.

Sunday July 19 2015

Beer Babes LadyBoys Pattaya Soi 6

 My day began with an innocent glass of champagne at midday at the Mantra Restaurant & Bar, and ended 11 hours later in Soi 6 with an ungainly nosedive onto the road leaving Saigon Lady. I blame Hamish Elton & Todd J Fox for keeping me captive and forcing copious amounts of beer, wine, Jack Daniels & Sambuca down my throat, all against my will of course.

Down but not out

Beer Babes LadyBoys Pattaya Soi 6

I’m lucky I didn’t break my bloody neck.

Being led into temptation

I’m under extreme pressure here trying to resist temptation. 🙂

Here is a TripAdvisor review on one of the well known Soi 6 bars;

5 of 5 starsReviewed 9 October 2014
I have been here loads of times over the years , what impresses me the most is the owners desire to look after his guests , regardless of whether or not you are a regular here or it’s your first visit he does look after his guests . There i was drinking away , minding my own business and a huge platter of sandwiches were being passed around , on another occasion i was off on a trip to ban chang and before we left chris ( the owner ) passed a carrier bag with beers in it !!!!! . There are thousands of bars in Pattaya , but there are only a handful of bar owners who have grasped the concept of looking after your guests , you will visit once and then you will realise what i am saying is true ……. even better , he ‘s a good lad ……. cos he is from Yorkshire ……. well what are you waiting for …….. off ya pop !! . By the way you are wasting your time talking about football with him , he knows bugger all about it ……… he is a Leeds Utd fan

Pattaya Beach Road Seafood Festival

Pattaya Beach Road Seafood Festival Pattaya Beach Road Seafood Festival is one of the annual promotions promoting food & tourism in this fun city by the sea.

Ship Ahoy!

Pattaya Beach Road Seafood Festival

The organisers go to quite a lot of effort setting up this event.

Setting up the stalls

Pattaya Beach Road Seafood Festival Full speed ahead to get everything ready by May 5th.

From Soi 1 to Pattaya Klang

 photo d2406752-f66c-4b86-91d9-4c72f0491372.jpgI’m guessing there would be around 80 food stalls.

Setting up the main pavilion

Pattaya Beach Road Seafood Festival I think this is where I will eat tonight.

OK, time to eat.

Pattaya Beach Road Seafood Festival I made one mistake, I didn’t bring any wine & they were not serving alcohol. 🙂

Dinner on the beach

 photo f0fdbbd2-8c35-4823-b6fd-89e5e99f8a7d.jpg Very relaxing overlooking Pattaya beach.

Excellent prawns

Pattaya Beach Road Seafood Festival I ordered two dishes, the prawns were excellent but sadly my 2nd dish never arrived. 🙂

Busy chefs at work.

Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes

May 3, 2017 by David Herd

A great street for bars & pubs.

Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes

Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes

 Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes along with it’s neighbour Soi 8 is one of Pattaya’s most popular drinking, eating & partying areas. Above is the corner of Soi 7 & Beach Rd.

Hello Welcome from Silver Star A go go

Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes

I was waiting for the Silver Star lady to yell out “HELLO WELCOME” which is heard nearly every time you walk past a Pattaya bar. 🙂

Olala bar & restaurant

Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes Above is Ola la specializing in Norwegian and Thai food.

Breakfast at Olala.

Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes They claim on their website to offer the beat breakfast in Pattaya which I strongly dispute. It’s no better or worse than many other Thai style bacon sausages & eggs. The eggs were excellent, the bacon average & the typical Thai sausages I didn’t eat. The cost was B145 including toast, jam, tea or coffee. 

Eastiny Bella Vista

Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes Located just behind Olala on the side road to Soi 8. Rooms here are around $25 per night if you book through THIS LINK.

Shower B20 & toilet B5. 🙂

Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes What a bargain, especially if you have just come off the beach.

Lots of beer bars

Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes Rather quiet through the day and very busy at night. 

2nd Road entrance.

Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes Soi 7 runs from Beach Rd through to 2nd Rd which is very convinient if you are travelling by Baht Bus.

Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes  The Pig & Whistle Pub one of the popular pubs in Soi 7.

Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes A flashback to January 2013 when 4 Ennglish friends including Chris came to Pattaya for the first time, naturally I was their tour guide. 🙂

The mob from England

Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes It was a lot of fun seeing the reaction of these guys on their first trip to Pattaya.

 Flashback to Soi 7 in 2004.

Soi 7 Pattaya Pubs Bars Babes It’s hard to believe how time flies, 13 years have flashed by.

I remember it as if it were yesterday.

Pattaya Goods Services Directory

Pattaya Goods Services Directory

Pattaya Goods Services Directory

 Pattaya Goods Services Directory hopefully will help you find some essential services in this city. It can be difficult to know who is good and who is average. I have a few of suggestions I can personally recommend which hopefully will save you some time.

The dentist you see in the header of this post is Dr Tapasat who can be found opposite the Dolphin roundabout. He trained and worked in the U.S.A for 20 years and speaks perfect English. He takes time to talk to you and clearly explains the procedures and alternatives.

Pattaya clinic offers good value

Pattaya Goods Services Directory Clinic Lifecare Pattaya located 40 meters off 3rd road not far from Tony’s gym at 247/59 Moo 10, Sai 3 Road. They are offering a special at B999 for the standard blood tests. I added a further test for PSA which added B600.

Pattaya Goods Services Directory

Pattaya Goods Services Directory The clinic was clean and efficient with friendly staff. I arrived at 7.45 am and was the first customer. The results were e-mailed to me at noon the same day.

247/59 Moo 10, Sai 3 Road.

Dr Somsak 2nd Rd North Pattaya

Locksmith

After phoning Pattaya keys and safes at 10 am and the Thai owner said he would replace 2 door locks for me between 2 and 3 pm that same day. At 2.30 he called to say he would arrive in 30 minutes and he did. Within 30 minutes both locks were fitted and spare keys handed over for a cost of B1,800.
