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.

Hello welcome Pattaya Beach Rd Thailand

December 20, 2016 by David Herd

A little shade on Pattaya Beach

Hello welcome Pattaya Beach Rd Thailand

Hello welcome Pattaya Beach Rd Thailand

Hello welcome Pattaya Beach Rd Thailand, everybody who visits the beach side city will regularly hear this as they pass the many bars, shops & massage parlours. “Hello welcome” is probably the most repeated phrase in Thailand. 🙂

There is always something to see on Beach Road Pattaya, I’m so happy to wake up and see the wonderful view every day.  

This post highlights the interesting things I see on Beach Road every day.

And here is my view

Hello welcome Pattaya Beach Rd Thailand

Is that magnificent or what?

Morning exercise on Beach Road

Hello welcome Pattaya Beach Rd Thailand

Most mornings I walk along Beach Road about 8 am, there is always something to photograph. 

 Above we have the healthy, below the not so healthy.

Hello welcome Pattaya Beach Rd Thailand

 

I have read many super models smoke to control their body weight, clearly in this case it has not worked. 🙂

This centuries most popular female entertainment

Hello welcome Pattaya Beach Rd Thailand

 A females favourite pastime, when too many selfies is never enough. ?

My favourite selfie 

 

Hello welcome Pattaya Beach Rd Thailand

Taken March 24 2017.

Hello welcome Pattaya Beach Rd Thailand     Hello welcome Pattaya Beach Rd Thailand       Hello welcome Pattaya Beach Rd Thailand

It doesn’t get much better than this. 🙂

Safety first

Hello welcome Pattaya Beach Rd Thailand

Good to see these guys wearing crash helmets, too bad about the pedestrians on the footpath, let’s not forget “this is Thailand”.

My tyres are fatter than yours

Hello welcome Pattaya Beach Rd Thailand

Not too sure what the advantage is have fat tyres on a bicycle, unless you are a fat guy like me. 🙂

Your tyres aren’t fat, these are fat. 🙂

Hello welcome Pattaya Beach Rd Thailand

Big super blue boom box, block the footpath, no problem this is Thailand.

 Sensible people wear hats on the beach

Hello welcome Pattaya Beach Rd Thailand

Hats! What hats, I don’t see any hats. 🙂

Look closely, surely you can see the hats

Hello welcome Pattaya Beach Rd Thailand

Is this a trick question? 🙂

Work begins on the pipeline

Hello welcome Pattaya Beach Rd Thailand

Highly skilled workers commence this 200,000,000 Baht project to the relieve the flooding on Beach Road. 

“OOPS” Houston we have a problem.

Hello welcome Pattaya Beach Rd Thailand

Not only were the operators lacking in the skill department the project that took many months also failed miserably.

So Beach Road still floods.

Hello welcome Pattaya Beach Rd Thailand

I really don’t think you will ever stop this flooding, there is such a huge volume of water from the tropical storms no drain or gutter can cope.

The bikini babes hit the beach

Hello welcome Pattaya Beach Rd Thailand

After the rain the sun come out and the bikini babes hit the beach. 🙂

Sabai Wing Soi 1 North Pattaya

Hello welcome Pattaya Beach Rd Thailand

Condominium

Hello welcome Pattaya Beach Rd Thailand

 

Work stopped 18 months ago on this high rise due to a dispute over height and other regulations. Now in December 2016 they have been ordered to remove the top 8 floors and increase the car parking.

Water cannons for sale

Hello welcome Pattaya Beach Rd Thailand

Songkran in April is New Year in Thailand, Pattaya conducts a huge water fight that drags on for over a week.

Pattaya Parasailing every day

October 2, 2016 by David Herd

Every morning

Pattaya Parasailing every day

  Pattaya Parasailing every day except for the few occasions the weather is so bad they have to cancel. Most of these tourists are from China, they pay for their holiday before leaving so a fair bit of the money never makes it to Thailand.

Organised chaos

 

Pattaya Parasailing every day

They buzz around like mosquitoes, personally I would not do this because I just don’t trust the Thai boat drivers.

 Coming in to land

Pattaya Parasailing every day

 

There are 4 or 5 of these barges located on the bay,  non-parasailers can also come out to the pontoon to watch the fun for a small cost.

One of the overpowered speed boats.

Pattaya Parasailing every day

About 750 HP is a ridiculous waste of money, I’m guessing they are just showing off to their competitors. When I lived in Australia I had one Yamaha 200 HP powering my boat, that used to cost me about $25 aud per hour in fuel. So these guys are obviously making plenty to be able to justify these three huge engines.

Stuck on the sand.

Every which way but loose

Pattaya Parasailing every day

 

This was the name of the 1978 Clint Eastwood movie, the phrase reminds me of the speed boats in this photo, it seems to be total chaos. 🙂

Check out the crowd on the barge

Pattaya Parasailing every day

All waiting for their turn to fly.

Flying high

Pattaya Parasailing every day

The most popular attraction for tourists.

Chaotic & crazy Parasailing in Pattaya

 A storm is looming

Pattaya Parasailing every day

The black clouds are coming across the bay but the tourists don’t seem to care.

More boats stuck on the sand.

Here it comes

Pattaya Parasailing every day

There is no better sight than watching a storm roll in over Pattaya bay.

A beautiful rainbow over the bay

Pattaya Parasailing every day

 

After the rain in Pattaya there a beautiful day always follows.

Pattaya Parasailing every day

Pattaya Parasailing every day

Quite a walk for the tourists to get to the boats when the tide is out.

Finally another busy day on the bay

Many wonderful boats Pattaya Bay

September 21, 2016 by David Herd

Pattaya Beach 1980

Many wonderful boats Pattaya Bay

 Many wonderful boats Pattaya Bay, lets start with the old clunkers, funnily enough some of these boats from 1980 are still being used today.

Here is a perfect example in 2016

Many wonderful boats Pattaya Bay

I guarantee this classic has been working in the bay for 60  or more years. I would definitely recommend a life jacket. 🙂

Protection from the burning sun?

Many wonderful boats Pattaya Bay

No way José , just sit there & fry.

At least the captain has shade in this one.

Many wonderful boats Pattaya Bay

Forget the passengers the captain is ok. 🙂

This old bucket has just had a paint job.

Many wonderful boats Pattaya Bay

Looks pretty good with the new paint job.

One extreme to another

Many wonderful boats Pattaya Bay

Here is one of the hundreds of speed boats that take tourists, mainly Chinese, to Koh Larn & Para-sailing. This one is grossly overpowered with almost 700 HP to push it along.

Even all that power doesn’t always do the job.

These Thai drivers are not very skillful I’m afraid.

Every morning in Pattaya

Many wonderful boats Pattaya Bay

The boats start gathering on Pattaya beach from 6.30 every morning.

Here come the Chinese tourists

Many wonderful boats Pattaya Bay

Every day thousands flock to Pattaya to board the boats.


And now for something different

Many wonderful boats Pattaya Bay

A nice catamaran pulls into the beach.

 Koh Larn ferry

Many wonderful boats Pattaya Bay

The 40 minute ferry ride to Koh Larn will set you back B30, or 86 U.S. cents.

Needs a little work

Many wonderful boats Pattaya Bay

One owner, & open to all reasonable offers.

Here is one being done up

Many wonderful boats Pattaya Bay

Still a little work to be done but starting to look good.

There are some luxury boats here as well.

Many wonderful boats Pattaya Bay

Just wander around some of the marinas along the coast and you will finds some very nice boats. However please don’t expect the “French Riviera”. 🙂

Ocean Marina yacht club

Many wonderful boats Pattaya Bay

I could happily live aboard this baby. 🙂 If you would like to enjoy a little luxury for around $50 usd per night just book through THIS LINK.

Yacht club

Many wonderful boats Pattaya Bay

Not too bad at all. 🙂

One of these would do me

Many wonderful boats Pattaya Bay

This would be a great little runabout.

Here is a classic

Many wonderful boats Pattaya Bay

Don’t know if it’s a yacht, a ketch, a sloop or none of these, but it is a beautiful boat. 🙂

High & dry in Pattaya

Many wonderful boats Pattaya Bay

Low tide as I’m sure you have already guessed. 🙂

For sale?

Fascinating clouds Pattaya Beach

June 14, 2016 by David Herd

Nature at it’s best

Fascinating clouds Pattaya Beach

Fascinating clouds Pattaya Beach

Fascinating clouds Pattaya Beach are one of the many advantages of living on Beach Road Pattaya overlooking the bay. I regularly see some of the most incredible cloud formation my 17th floor apartment in Markland condo. The photo above shows some beautiful cumulus clouds hovering above Koh Larn island while the para sailors buzz around Pattaya bay like angry mosquitoes.

Fascinating clouds Pattaya Beach

Fascinating clouds Pattaya Beach

 

Blue sky, white clouds on a sunny day, life does not get better than this. I spend a few hours each day on my computer producing my photo blogs, not sure if it’s a hobby or an obsession, however it gives me great satisfaction to glance over the top of my monitor which I do one hundred times a day, and see the clouds rolling across the bay.

 Looking north to Wongamat

Fascinating clouds Pattaya Beach

 

Wongamat is the next beach north of Pattaya, there are many beach side condos and hotels overlooking a nice sandy beach. The yellow building in the foreground is the Dusit Thani five star hotel.

Fascinating Pattaya clouds over Koh Larn

Fascinating clouds Pattaya Beach

 

Koh Larn is a B30 40 minute ferry ride from Bali Hi wharf, the crystal clear water is a huge improvement over Pattaya.

Looking west at the Fascinating Pattaya clouds.

I’m sure you will all be pleased to hear I have just created a new profession, I am now a Cloudologist, who constantly participates in the art of Cloudology. Be impressed, be very impressed. 🙂 🙂 🙂

Looking south

Fascinating clouds Pattaya Beach

 

The building under construction on the right is Centric Sea, it consists of two high rise and one low rise building containing 1000 condominiums. It in located in 2nd road and was completed early 2016.

Balloon

Fascinating clouds Pattaya Beach

 

The “Ripleys Believe it or not” hot air balloon is actually anchored by a cable so customers won’t go flying of in the wild blue yonder.

June 29 2017

Fascinating clouds Pattaya Beach

 

Nearly every day there is another interesting cloud to photograph.

An interesting story

Fascinating clouds Pattaya Beach

 

Work stopped on the high rise nearly two years ago over because of questions about building approvals and specifications. Hundreds of people would have paid deposits & by now be wondering if they have lost their money.

UPDATE, the owners declared bankruptcy in January 2017, so who knows what will happen now.

Angry clouds

Fascinating clouds Pattaya Beach

 

Up to now I have featured the pretty clouds, now it’s time for some angry clouds. 🙂

Looking south from my apartment

Fascinating clouds Pattaya Beach

The building in the foreground is the A1 hotel which is shaped like a ship, the tall building is North Shore, the most upmarket condo block in central Pattaya.

Another awesome cloud formation

So many clouds to photograph and such little time. 🙂

View point Pratumnak Hill

Pattaya Bay Beach Resort Thailand

Pattaya Bay Beach Resort Thailand

Pattaya Bay Beach Resort Thailand is a city two hours south of Bangkok. My first visit was 37 years ago in 1980 and after many trips over the years since then I decided to move here from Australia in October 2011. Without a doubt it was the right decision given how expensive the cost of living in Australia has become. Don’t get me wrong, I still love Australia with a passion, however at my age Thailand offers a better lifestyle at an affordable price.

The following photos and video were taken from the naval base on Pratumnak Hill beside the communication tower you can see in the centre of the above photo.

A perfect view of Pattaya Bay stretching all the way to Wongamat which is the next beach to the north.

Waterfront condo

Pattaya Bay Beach Resort Thailand

Construction was halted in 2014 due to alleged anomalies in the building specifications and planning permits.  Nobody seems to have any idea if and when work will re-commence.

In late 2016 it was reported they have to now remove the top 8 floors of the building.

Bali Hai pier

Pattaya Bay Beach Resort Thailand

 

Just below the view point is Bali Hai pier where for B30 you can take a ferry to Koh Larn where there are some excellent beaches and clean water.

A closer look at the pier.

The ferries to Koh Larn run about every 39 minutes from 10 am.

Well if it’s not a building boom I’m not sure how you would describe it in May 2016.

Sunset over Pattaya Bay.

Pattaya Bay Beach Resort Thailand

 

The sunsets in Pattaya Bay Beach Resort are as spectacular as anything I have seen in this world, as are the tropical storms.

Tropical storm

Pattaya Bay Beach Resort Thailand

 

During the wet season which is May to November these fierce storms roll in over the bay often causing severe damage to the beach. Follow this link to see the aftermath of Vamco in 2015.

This was June 12th 2017 & at first I thought itr was sand stirred up by the speedboats. Then a suggestion was made it could be the result of some sort of plankton bloom.

Thanks for stopping by.

Pattaya storm water pipe

November 16, 2015 by David Herd

In comes the storm

Pattaya storm water pipe

 Pattaya storm water pipe is planned to be the solution to Beach Road flooding after every storm. The problem is they need to replicate what they are building opposite Soi 6 in at least 4 other locations.

So the problem begins as you see above when the storm rolls in.

Beach Road floods

Pattaya storm water pipe

When the storm hits within a matter of minutes Beach Road disappears.

The footpath disappears as well

Pattaya storm water pipe

 

The volume of water is too much for any drain of gutter to handle.

 The solution stage one

Pattaya storm water pipe

This was how it all started by digging up the footpath opposite Soi 6. Naturally at this stage we had no idea what was happening.

The channel

Pattaya storm water pipe

We still were not sure what the plan was.

Progress

Pattaya storm water pipe

The work was progressing 4/7.

Lots of equipment in play

Pattaya storm water pipe

It must be costing a fortune with all this equipment in play.

Opposite Soi 6

 Pattaya storm water pipe

Those buildings you can see are on the corner of Soi 6.

To add to their problems

Pattaya storm water pipe

 A storm arrived and wrecked part of the footpath and work site.

Sandbags to keep the water out

Pattaya storm water pipe

On the right you can see the damaged footpath, meanwhile lets hope the sandbags are effective.

The pump station

Pattaya storm water pipe

I’m guessing this will be where the pump will be located.

Pattaya storm water pipe

Pattaya storm water pipe

As you can clearly see it is a frenzy of activity.

Ooops!

Pattaya storm water pipe

Not everything goes to plan here in Thailand.

Houston we have a problem

Pattaya storm water pipe

 

I have a feeling the boss is not going to be happy.

 It’s not a pipedream

Pattaya storm water pipe

After 4 months of continuous work the first length of pipe is installed.


Then  mid November a large barge arrives

Pattaya storm water pipe

Getting ready for the 2nd length of pipe.

 Here comes the pipe.

Pattaya storm water pipe

 

Three pipes of this length were joined together.

Para-sailors in the background.

Pattaya storm water pipe

Life goes on as usual in Pattaya, the para-sailors are here every day.

A short video

Thanks for visiting my Pattaya storm water pipe photo blog, I will post more as it happens.

Here is a quote from The Pattaya Mail. a local newspaper on June 17 2016. “In the past year, Pattaya spent 170 million baht to install three huge drainage pipes at the Dusit Curve, Soi 6, and near Walking Street. But even short rainstorms since their completion have shown the pricey pipes are unable to solve Beach Road’s chronic flooding problem.”

Storms smash Pattaya beach

August 4, 2015 by David Herd

Here’s how it starts

Storms smash Pattaya beach

Storms smash Pattaya beach

 Storms smash Pattaya beach on a regular basis, especially in the wet season between July & November. Gutters & drains just can’t handle to huge downpours.

Here is the result

Storms smash Pattaya beach

It’s a never ending problem for the local council who can’t seem to cope with the problem.

Ugly & dangerous

Storms smash Pattaya beach

It’s both ugly & dangerous and won’t e solved until they improve the drainage problems.

Beach Road goes under

Storms smash Pattaya beach

There are no drains and gutters that can cope with the amount of water in such a short time.

The footpath disappears

Storms smash Pattaya beach

After 20 minutes of rain this is the result, no footpath. 🙂

You can see the sand being washed away

Storms smash Pattaya beach

In the wet season between June & November this is a regular occurrence.

Storms smash Pattaya beach

Storms smash Pattaya beach

The storm water also runs down from 2nd road to add to what is one Beach Road.

Find yourself an island

Storms smash Pattaya beach

The beach looks quite ugly after the storm.

 Sandbags

Storms smash Pattaya beach

Sandbags are used as a cunning plan to keep the beach intact, clearly it does not work. 🙂

Pattaya Weather

Storms smash Pattaya beach

 

The power of the tropical storm

Storms smash Pattaya beach

The council tried to come up with a solution in 2015, check out this link.

Sand is gone baby gone

Storms smash Pattaya beach

This problem has been happening for many years.

Not a pretty sight

Storms smash Pattaya beach

Life goes on as usual in Pattaya, the boats taking out the para-sailors are here every day.

Hilton Hotel

Storms smash Pattaya beach

The roads flood so quickly as the drains just can’t handle the incredible volume of water, it then spills over to the beach. Often these storms only last for 30 or 40 minutes however that’s enough time to cause havoc.

The cavalry arrives

Storms smash Pattaya beach

Normally soon after the storm you will see these guys busy restoring the damage. It’s now August 2015 & sadly in the last six months they have been strangely absent.

After the storm a beautiful day returns.

Chinese storm Thailand beach

August 4, 2015 by David Herd

They arrive in their thousands every day

Chinese storm Thailand beach

Chinese storm Thailand beach

 Chinese storm Thailand beach every day of the year and climb aboard powerful speedboats which take them to nearby Koh Larn or para sailing in Pattaya bay

South Pattaya

Chinese storm Thailand beach

In the background on the right if the famous Walking St, you can see restaurants built (many illegally) over the water. The tall condo building has only recently been completed during the current Pattaya building boom.

Thousands arrive every day

Chinese storm Thailand beach

Of course there is some controversy about who receives the revenue as most of the money is paid on packaged tours in China when they book their trip. Pattaya is suffering from a downturn in tourism, here are comments made in a recent article in June 2015 in the Bangkok Post; “Pattaya hotels are struggling to survive and are being pressured by Chinese travel agents to reduce their room rates by 30-40%. Hoteliers in the resort city have been relying mainly on Chinese tourists after the sharp fall in European tourists, particularly Russians, due to the economic recession in their countries. Locally run Pattaya hotels have faced an oversupply since last year and the situation… “

Slightly over powered

Chinese storm Thailand beach

An example of one of the speedboats with three 225 HP Yamaha motors, a slight case of overkill. Are there any accidents you ask? Of course there are, many of the Thai skippers are unlicensed and high on drugs or booze, if an accident occurs they invoke the well used Thai strategy of “run & hide”. 🙂

Para sailing on Pattaya bay

Chinese storm Thailand beach

The buzz around like mosquitoes and yes sadly accidents often do happen here as you will see in the following news video.

Para sailor killed on honeymoon

This sad incident happened in 2011 however the safety situation does not seem to have changed since then.

Hundreds of boats

Chinese storm Thailand beach

 

This is a huge business in Pattaya taking Chinese tourists to Koh Larn.

About to land

Chinese storm Thailand beach

 

Lets hope he has a soft landing. 🙂

Whew! back safe & sound

Chinese storm Thailand beach

 

I’m sure many of these tourists will never forget their Pattaya holiday.

Buzzing like mosquitoes

Even the storms don’t stop the boats.

Chinese storm Thailand beach

 

An awesome sight watching the storm roll in over Pattaya bay.

Screaming Yamahas

I mentioned earlier I don’t have much confidence in the Thai boat divers, here is how they cope with sandbanks.

 Chinese storm Thailand beach. If you build it they will come. 🙂

Every day of the week they come from China and elsewhere.

Lined up ready to go

Lots of boats and one rainbow. 🙂

Tropical storm floods Pattaya

April 4, 2015 by David Herd

Tropical storm floods Pattaya

Tropical storm floods Pattaya

Tropical storm floods Pattaya, when it rains it really pours down. I love to see the storm clouds roaring across Pattaya bay from my condo. You can can also watch from anywhere in the world on my webcam.

Here it comes

Tropical storm floods Pattaya

 

I really love watching the black clouds roll in over the bay.

Is this a road or a river?

Tropical storm floods Pattaya

 

Looks more like a river to me. 🙂

Oh oh! This does not look good.

Tropical storm floods Pattaya

The roads flood so quickly as the drains just can’t handle the incredible volume of water. Often these storms only last for 30 or 40 minutes however that’s enough time to cause havoc.


LadyBoy in distress.

Houston, we have a problem

Hmmm what do I do now?

Helping hands

No problem for the Baht bus.

The Song Tao or Baht bus ploughs straight through.

They won’t all make it

Believe me, not all these vehicles will get through.

Help is on the way

Tractor to the rescue.

The result

Tropical storm floods Pattaya

  The beach gets smashed time and time again throughout the year this is the result.  

Gutters can’t handle the volume

Tropical storm floods Pattaya

 

I don’t think there is any drainage system that can handle the sheer volume of storm water.

Repairs are needed

Tropical storm floods Pattaya

Sadly this in an all too familiar sight on Pattaya beach.

Soggy footpath

The aftermath of the storm.

Crazy idea

Tropical storm floods Pattaya

Here are 3 pumps to take the water from the flooded road onto the beach, don’t ask me to describe the logic behind this crazy idea. It simply washes away the sand as you can see in the above photos. One thing I do know however, logic and common sense are thin on the ground in Thailand.

Pattaya beach bay city views

Pattaya beach bay & city views is a collection of photos from Pattaya bay & the surrounding area. Here’s what I see each day from my condo, best view I have had from any of my previous homes.

Low tide Pattaya Beach Bay

David Herd Thailand

From July for a few months we get very low tides and the beach looks better than it really is.

Chinese tourists boarding the boats

Boats everywhere

This sight is repeated every day of the year on Pattaya beach bay.

Bali Hi Wharf south Pattaya

Ferry to Koh Larn
