Royal Cliff Hotel Pattaya Here I am with my friend Rob Symonds on our first trip to Thailand in 1980. The hotel was only about half the size in 1980 and had only been open for 2 years. In those days there was a separate building with housed a ten pin bowling alley on the ground floor with a typical Thai soapy massage parlour on the first floor. There were at least 50 gorgeous ladies behind the glass and you simply chose the one you wanted. 🙂


Hotel Foyer

This is a perfect hotel if you want to be out of the hustle & bustle of central Pattaya, yet you are only 10 minutes away in a Baht bus.

Beautiful setting
