Fun in Thailand in 2008
Bangkok Pattaya Krabi
Bangkok Pattaya Krabi were all Thailand locations I visited in 2008. Along with my huge trip to Brazil followed by New York, you can add Bali and Kuala Lumpur to the list and what do you get? Another frantic year of travel for the FiveStarVagabond. 🙂
The photos shows me at one of the many cocktail cars in Pattaya.
This post is part of my online photo album not part of my travel blog.
One of Pattaya’s most infamous streets, only a few blocks from where I live. 🙂
LadyBoy, are you serious?
Here are Dennis and Nick my friends from the Gold Coast in Walking St with the best looking LadyBoy we have ever seen.
Trust me, just a photo shoot, nothing more. 🙂
It would be very easy to make a mistake here. 🙂
Beautiful Jan from the Cherry bar.
You are going to see a lot of Jan on this post, I can never show too much of Jan, in my eyes she was the most gorgeous Thai girl I ever knew.
Dr Evil and the Princess
I last saw her in 2013 she was married to a European guy and pregnant with her 3rd child. Oh well all good things must come to an end, we had a lot of fun together for 3 or 4 years on my visits to Pattaya.
What a horrible sight
You too can have bodies like this if you abuse them. Here we are at the Sabai Resort, John Martin aka Pothole and Tony Murphy. The three of us actually travelled around the world together in 1999, we finished our trip in Koh Samui for the millennium.
Nic, Sharon and Rod Perin, (RIP).
Drinks at Nana Plaza with good friends Nic, Sharon and Rod, sadly Rod passed away a couple of years after this photo. He hailed from Forster on the NSW coast but spent most of his final years in Thailand. Nick and Sharon live on the Gold Coast and travel regularly to Pattaya. In fact Nick has a range of Thai boxing gear manufactured in Bangkok under his “Punish” label.
Bernards Soi 3
Nick and I at Bernards when it was in Soi 3, they mover to Soi 1 around 2011 and it was never as good. Sadly they closed their doors in 2014.
Rod, Nick and I with our new watches.
Check out our genuine copies from China while having a beer at the Cherry Bar.
North Pattaya Beach
sky cold beer, perfect. 🙂
Ron and Yvonne Collier at Sirocco
I have known Ron & Yvonne for over 30 years since they initially lived in Melbourne. Around 25 years ago they moved to Byron Bay and I would occasionally drive down to visit them. Sadly Ron passed away in April 2012.
Sirocco in Bangkok
My brother Warren & Yvonne.
Sirocco is magnificent
Best Sky Bar I have ever been to, take plenty of money. 🙂
U too Bar Pattaya
This was a good bar on 2nd rd opposite Alcazar LadyBoy show. In 2010 it moved further up the road to Drinking St due to a re-development of the site.
Bernards in Soi 3
This was one of my favourite restaurants, it moved to Soi 1 then finally closed down in 2014. Lars & Smokey Shitterer the couple on the right were very good friends of mine until 2013 when they put me firmly on their black list. I’m very comfortable there along with the many others on that list. 🙂
A message to Lars & Smokey
Say no more…….
Pattaya street kitchen.
Thailand have taken street food to an art-form.
Here is Jan again
I told you earlier you would be seeing more of Jan. 🙂
Trevor Loersch at Nui at the Mantra.
Trevor lives in W.A. & often holidays in Thailand.
Cosy Beach is much quieter now in 2017 since the Navy closed down all the food vendors.
Phung aka Cleopatra at Nana Plaza.
I have known Cleo since 2001 and always take her out when I am in Bangkok, she is a super girl.
Another nice visitor
Here is Ice at the Sabai Resort, another nice girl I have known for 2 or 3 years, she use to work as a dancer in Nana Plaza in Bangkok.
Russian girl at Cosy beach
Very easy on the eye. 🙂
Greg Clee and Ron Collier
Drinks at Nana Plaza, RIP Ron.
Krabi is far more relaxed & lay back than many other Thai resorts. It seems to me the biggest % of tourists come from Scandinavia, consequently there are quite a few Swedish & Norwegian restaurants, which suits me fine as I love Skagen.
Krabi Beach bar
A very good town to relax in.
Dinner at Krabi
My brother Warren and I both enjoy Krabi, a great location for massages and Scandinavian food.
Finally another photo of Jan
Certainly one of my all time favourite Thai girls.
That’s all folks
