The Five Star Vagabond

Super travel tips, all road tested by David Herd. I'm an Australian guy who moved to Thailand in 2011 & still travel the world as often as possible.

Jomtien Pattaya south

Jomtien beach

Jomtien Pattaya south Jomtien Pattaya south in my mind used to be Pattaya’s poor cousin, well¬†times have changed. There are many people who prefer to live in this quieter area on the Thai coast rather than busy gridlocked Pattaya beach. The beach stretches for miles & miles and the water is much cleaner than Pattaya bay.

Relax in the shade

Jomtien Pattaya south Sabai sabai means relax in Thai, one of about 10 words I know the meaning of. I have only been living in Thailand five years so that equates to 2 words a year, hmm I guess I’m a little slow. ūüôā

Building boom

Cetus Jomtien The first couple of photos may have given the impression of a sleepy backwater, well nothing could be further from the truth, High rise condos and hotels are exploding on the skyline. This monster has the unfortunate name of Cetus which always reminds me of part of the female anatomy.

 Jomtiensaineung Road

Jomtien Pattaya south Chom Tian is the name you will often see on road signs, located 165 km south-east of Bangkok and a few minutes south of Pattaya.

Sunset at Jomtien

Jomtien Pattaya south A great time of the day to swim or just enjoy a cocktail by the beach.

Lots of restaurants

Jomtien Pattaya south The beach is about 6 kms long and there are many restaurants opposite where you can enjoy the sunset and the sea breeze.

Indian, Italian, French and many others.

Jomtien Pattaya south So many restaurants and so little time.

Jomtien Pattaya south A little further south overlooking the beach is a nice little cafe bar where you can enjoy a cocktail or a pizza while watching the beautiful sunset.
