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
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. 🙂
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.
Sunset at Jomtien
A great time of the day to swim or just enjoy a cocktail by the beach.
Lots of restaurants
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.
So many restaurants and so little time.
Natan’s is my favourite
Put Naten’s on your bucket list, it is in my top 6 restaurants in Pattaya and Jomtien.
The food and décor is exceptional and rather inexpensive
Drifters Beach Cafe
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.
You really need a car to get to Drifters cafe.
Thailand’s ugly overhead power lines
A common sight in Thailand, the next photo highlights the highly trained workmen.
Master electrician at work
Workplace health & safety is not a high priority in Thailand, however there is a guy holding the ladder ?
