Reasonably quite during the daylight hours this famous street comes to life after dark.

Soi 6 is not known for top shelf babes

Last Wild Frontier Pattaya Thailand

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.

Bars Massage Babes Hotels North Pattaya

September 22, 2018 by David Herd

Lots of action in Soi 3 North Pattaya 

Bars Massage Babes Hotels North Pattaya

Bars Massage Babes Hotels North Pattaya Bars Massage Babes Hotels North Pattaya, this lively Soi has a lot to offer tourists & locals alike. Living in Soi 1 as I do means I’m a regular in Soi 3. At the end is Honey 2 massage, 2nd Road & Central Marina.

Lots of Thai street food.

Bars Massage Babes Hotels North Pattaya Lots of these interesting little shops have recently opened in 2018.

Melodies Bar & guesthouse

Bars Massage Babes Hotels North Pattaya Quite popular with a few Aussies who live in my condo building, Markland in Soi 1.

Diagonally opposite is a very good low price restaurant called 3 Zab.

Bars Massage Babes Hotels North Pattaya I regularly eat here on my way home from the Atlantic Bar.

Bars Massage Babes Hotels North Pattaya

Bars Massage Babes Hotels North Pattaya Noodles & chicken or pork at 3 Zab for B60 or $2.50 AUD.

Soi 3 from my balcony at Markland

Bars Massage Babes Hotels North Pattaya [email protected] is the tall hotel on the left & on the right is MyTT Beach Hotel, a very nice hotel that opened early 2018 & is part of the A-One group of hotels.

Another A-One hotel next door to MyTT.

Bars Massage Babes Hotels North Pattaya Sadly the A-One hotels have no regard for their neighbours, they often play music far too loud into the early hours of the morning, plus allow their staff to park 30 or 40 motorbikes on the footpath forcing people to walk on the road. Total arrogance.

Most streets in Pattaya have at least one 7 Eleven. 🙂

Bars Massage Babes Hotels North Pattaya There are massage parlours next door & opposite.

The biggest of them all is Honey 2.

Bars Massage Babes Hotels North Pattaya

One of the many body to body massage palaces in North Pattaya.

A word of caution, 90% of customers are from India. 🙂

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping MallThat’s why I always recommend my friends go to the one opposite the Atlantic bar.

Sabai body massage

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping MallNext door to the Sabai Resort in 2nd Rd & opposite the Atlantic Bar.

Looking from the Atlantic Bar.

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall

This is the view I get from my seat in the bar where I am a regular.

Opposite Soi 3 & Honey 2 is Central Marina.

Bars Massage Babes Hotels North Pattaya

An excellent shopping mall that will suffer a downturn when Terminal 21 opens on October 19th. Thanks for visiting my Bars Massage Babes Hotels North Pattaya photo blog.

Karaoke Bar

Bars Massage Babes Hotels North Pattaya Always lots of babes inviting you in for a drink, however for me karaoke is similar to water torture. 🙂

Soi 3 beer bars

Bars Massage Babes Hotels North Pattaya This is 2010, big Steve Reade from Surfers Paradise with a cute 18 yo babe celebrating her birthday. Of the left in the silly outfit is Pothole Bin Ladin aka John Martin.

Flashback to 2010

Bars Massage Babes Hotels North Pattaya Here I am out of control at Jasmine’s bar, This is 2010 & the bars were jumping. Now in late 2018 many have closed down.

A happy farewell from the motorbike taxi boys.

Bars Massage Babes Hotels North Pattaya A great way to get around Pattaya for 50 or 60 Baht, only problem is they are not always sober. 🙂

Here is a little video I took in Soi 3 in 2015.

Good Indian Food Pattaya 2nd Rd

August 23, 2018 by David Herd

Highly rated Indian restaurant

Good Indian Food Pattaya

Good Indian Food Pattaya

Good Indian Food Pattaya located in 2nd Rd just opposite the Royal Gardens shopping mall. I don’t often patronize Indian restaurants however the food at Zaika was very good so in future I will make an effort to visit other similar places.

Fairly mundane decor

Good Indian Food Pattaya In fact the upholstery on the booths looks like it needs a good shampoo. Otherwise it’s comfortable & compact.

Lets check out the food.

Good Indian Food Pattaya

I ordered a chicken curry not too spicy. 

Good Indian Food Pattaya

Good Indian Food Pattaya Lets take a closer look at the Good Indian Food Pattaya. The curry was excellent and the long grain rice exceptional.

 Chicken Biryani

Good Indian Food Pattaya These  two photos I borrowed from TripAdvisor to let you see a couple more food samples.

Fish Tikka with Jasmine rice

Good Indian Food Pattaya

TripAdvisor rating is #27 of 1,091 Places to Eat in Pattaya  which seems a rather high rating, hard for me to judge after only one visit.

Located on 2nd Rd

Good Indian Food Pattaya Right opposite the Royal Gardens shopping mall. Their phone number is 038  488 958.

These prices are very low indeed.

Good Indian Food Pattaya They have a very busy home delivery service.

A huge selection

Good Indian Food Pattaya I certainly will be using the home delivery service.

Patrick’s Belgian Steakhouse Pattaya

July 18, 2018 by David Herd

Renovated May 2018

Patrick’s Belgian Steakhouse Pattaya

Patrick's Belgian Steakhouse Pattaya

Patrick’s Belgian Steakhouse Pattaya is certainly one of my favourite restaurants. TripAdvisor rating is #22 of 1,025 Restaurants in Pattaya, however in my opinion it is in the top 10.

Perhaps a salad to start with.

Patrick's Belgian Steakhouse Pattaya Lots of choices at Patrick’s Belgian Steakhouse Pattaya.

The photo does not do it justice.

Patrick's Belgian Steakhouse Pattaya

The Oxtail soup is fantastic, I often drop in and have it for lunch, followed by a waffle of course. 🙂

Of course I sometime have the pancake instead of the waffle. 🙂

Patrick's Belgian Steakhouse Pattaya They are both delicious.

A terrific dinner with friends.

One final look at the Tuesday special.

Patrick's Belgian Steakhouse Pattaya Lamb shank (French style) & potato au gratin. I only have one criticism of this fine restaurant, the house wine is far too expensive. Everything else is excellent, many thanks for visiting my Patrick’s Belgian Steakhouse Pattaya photo blog.

Pattaya Seafood Festival 2018

May 8, 2018 by David Herd

So much seafood & such little time.

Pattaya Seafood Festival 2018 Pattaya Seafood Festival 2018

Pattaya Seafood Festival 2018 was a noisy affair as usual. There is a bandstand on the beach which blasts very ordinary music until the early hours of the morning. My condo is on the 20th floor 400 meters away & the sound hits me full blast even with the door closed. 🙂

Beach Road Pattaya

Pattaya Seafood Festival 2018 One of the bigger kitchens along Beach Road.

Prawns, crab & shell fish

Pattaya Seafood Festival 2018A good variety & freshly cooked.

 Big variety of meat including crocodile. 🙂

OK, I’m confused…..

Pattaya Seafood Festival 2018I have no idea what these bamboo tubes are for.

Busy ladies here on Beach Road

Pattaya Seafood Festival 2018The festival runs for 5 nights and really draws the crowds.

I dined at the same place last year.

Pattaya Seafood Festival 2018In 2017 the food here was great so I decided to give it another whirl.

 Small but tasty

Pattaya Seafood Festival 2018 I chose 2 dishes from their signature menu, the one above was fine at B159 or $5 USD.

 This one not so good.

Pattaya Seafood Festival 2018The calamari was as tough as an old boot & the filling was very average indeed. I would have been better off at one of the smaller stalls.

Thailand Beach Cam Pattaya

March 21, 2018 by David Herd

Click bottom right hand corner for full screen.

Thailand Beach Cam Pattaya is the number one webcam in South East Asia, perhaps even the Universe. 🙂

You can zoom, record, take a photo & e-mail it etc, I hope you enjoy the view.

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 kilometers (62 mi) southeast of Bangkok. Back in the 60s it was a sleepy fishing village before it was discovered by the U.S. military personal on leave from the Vietnam war. Then through out the 1970s it really took off when Europeans, Australians & Americans started pouring in for their annual holidays.

Bookmark Thailand Beach Cam Pattaya so you can check out the view, traffic or weather anytime you wish.

In partnership with EarthCam

I am extremely happy to be associated with EarthCam who hold the #1 Google organic-search placing for “Live Webcam”. There are  around 9 Million Visits to the EarthCam site over an average 90 day period.

I hope you can read a map. 🙂

 Different room options

Whales Belly Excellent Bangkok RestaurantThere are 4 or 5 different room options depending on your mood which is a nice touch.

I chose this room.

Whales Belly Excellent Bangkok RestaurantIt was lunch time & very hot outside so sitting away from the windows was a very good option.

Another small section

So many choices & such little time. 🙂

What about the food you ask?

Whales Belly Excellent Bangkok RestaurantThe range was very good to excellent, starting with an interesting plate of black bread.

An ice cold Asahi beer

Whales Belly Excellent Bangkok RestaurantMost certainly my beer of choice.

Followed by a Lobster bisque

Whales Belly Excellent Bangkok RestaurantRather small but very tasty indeed, I gave it 9 out of 10.

 The Foie Gras was 10 out of 10

Whales Belly Excellent Bangkok RestaurantThis was a fabulous taste sensation, certainly 10 out of 10.

Main course

Whales Belly Excellent Bangkok Restaurant Lamb shoulder was very tasty but a little too stringy for me, I gave it 7.5 out of 10.

Another 10 out of 10 here

Restaurants Sukhumvit 29 Alley Bangkok

March 19, 2018 by David Herd

So many restaurants & such little time

Restaurants Sukhumvit 29 Alley Bangkok

Restaurants Sukhumvit 29 Alley Bangkok Restaurants Sukhumvit 29 Alley Bangkok, was where I walked from the Whale’s Belly restaurant to Sukhumvit Road. I was amazed by the number of restaurants along this trail, so I decided to show you some of them & give you the TripAdvisor ratings to help you decide where you want to eat. 

Le cochon blanc bangkok

Restaurants Sukhumvit 29 Alley BangkokTripAdvisor rating is #165 of 10,435 Restaurants in BangkokThis is top of my list the next time I visit the city. Located at 26 Soi Phrom Chit, Sukhumvit 31.

Peppina Sukhumvit 33

You are not going to believe this rating for Indulge Fusion & cocktail bar.

Restaurants Sukhumvit 29 Alley BangkokAn amazing Tripadvisor rating of #41 of 10,435 Restaurants in Bangkok.

After reading the reviews I can’t wait to go there.

Last but not least The Penalty Spot.

Restaurants Sukhumvit 29 Alley Bangkok

A very nice looking sports bar close to Asoke station.

Beautiful decor but some poor reviews.

Restaurants Sukhumvit 29 Alley BangkokNot a bad rating for a sports bar, #1,897 of 10,435 Restaurants in Bangkok.

Some comments here from unhappy customers.

Here is where I walked.

Restaurants Sukhumvit 29 Alley BangkokAll the above restaurants were along this route.

Many thanks for visiting my Restaurants Sukhumvit 29 Alley Bangkok photo blog, I will certainly be visiting some of these hidden gems soon.

The Hass Bistro

Restaurants Sukhumvit 29 Alley BangkokThis new restaurant is not on the above route however I am including as avocados are one of my all time favourite things to eat any time anywhere. 

Looking forward to going here on my next Bangkok trip

Restaurants Sukhumvit 29 Alley Bangkok

Their Hass avocados are shipped from New Zealand and are served in every imaginable form and flavor. In the crunchy avocado (B240), breaded wedges of avocado are deep-fried for creamy, crispy mouthfuls with a side of sriracha aioli dip. The Avo Burger (prawn B395, chicken B335), meanwhile, really isn’t a burger at all, substituting bread for avocado halves and beef for chicken or prawn, with layers of lettuce, cheese and red onions. On the Thai-fusion end, there’s a tom yam pasta (B395) served with grilled prawns, cherry tomatoes and, somewhat superfluous here, slices of avocado. Avocados are also available for purchase for B89 a piece.

Big Changes Nana Plaza Plus Soi 4

March 18, 2018 by David Herd

Improvements to Nana in Bangkok

Big Changes Nana Plaza Plus Soi 4

Big Changes Nana Plaza Plus Soi 4 Big Changes Nana Plaza Plus Soi 4 are taking place right now in March 2018. A huge roof is being built over the Plaza & the bars in the centre are being built again.

Lucky Lukes is still the same

Big Changes Nana Plaza Plus Soi 4First bar on the right as you enter.

 VW bar at the back

Big Changes Nana Plaza Plus Soi 4 Quite a nice addition to the plaza, apparently it has been here 3 years yet I rarely venture to the back of Nana.

Playschool is an old favourite revamped

Big Changes Nana Plaza Plus Soi 4You gotta love the pink. 🙂

Big Changes Nana Plaza Plus Soi 4

Big Changes Nana Plaza Plus Soi 4Lollipop makes a comeback. It was Suckers & before that Lollipop again.

Here it is in 2017.

Big Changes Nana Plaza Plus Soi 4

This to me is the quintessential Nana Plaza photo, sums up many of the customers. 🙂

 Re-building the bars, again.

Big Changes Nana Plaza Plus Soi 4This is at least the 3rd time the bars in the centre courtyard have been re-built, I have a feeling the current owners will do it right this time.

Last re-build was 2013, check this link.

Turn the clock back to 1997

ea33f1fd-370b-4fd4-a7d3-233653917273

My first visit was 1997 which was the start of a long and happy connection, not necessarily because of the Thai girls who are there basically to relieve you of your hard earned cash, more because of the great times I have enjoyed with friends from all over the world. Check out this photo blog which showcases them and many of the gorgeous babes we got tangled up with over these decades of decadence. 🙂

Another longtime Nana Plaza bar.

Big Changes Nana Plaza Plus Soi 4Rainbow 1 has been at Nana Plaza for as long as I can remember.

Let’s wander down Soi 4

Big Changes Nana Plaza Plus Soi 4This is one of about 4 Hillary bars.

New kid on the block

Big Changes Nana Plaza Plus Soi 4Just a short stroll down Soi 4 on the opposite side of the road.

Located in front of  the old Rajah hotel.

Big Changes Nana Plaza Plus Soi 4The bars offer a nice alternative to the rowdy Nana Plaza.

Semi open beer garden

Big Changes Nana Plaza Plus Soi 4At the front of Broadway in Soi 4.

Opposite Broadway is the Red Zone

Big Changes Nana Plaza Plus Soi 4Apart from the new bars there are a couple of high rise buildings under construction, hotels or condos, not sure which.

Used to be Bangkok & before that Spellbound

Big Changes Nana Plaza Plus Soi 4 The more things change the more they stay the same. I first came to Nana Plaza in 1996, & here I am again in October 2018 drinking ice cold Tiger beer & listening to the Eagles sing Hotel California, the perfect song for this incredible venue. “You can check out anytime you want but you can never leave.”

Big Dogs has also changed a little.

Big Changes Nana Plaza Plus Soi 4 Still a great spot to watch the arrivals.
