Pattaya Arts Festival Beach Rd 2017

Pattaya Arts Festival Beach Rd 2017

 Pattaya Arts Festival Beach Rd 2017 is another of the “never ending” promotions designed to attract tourists to this popular beach side resort. The city council are to be congratulated for their efforts in providing entertainment all through the year.

Big bright colourful paintings

Pattaya Arts Festival Beach Rd 2017

A fun collection painted by Pattaya’s freelance artists.

Beach Babe

 The festival theme is “New Sense”, The Sense of Art,  which is the sense beyond our five natural senses of sight, hearing, taste, touch and smell.

Happy faces on the beach

Pattaya Arts Festival Beach Rd 2017

The beachfront exhibition is more than a kilometre long from North Pattaya to Central Pattaya.

Skateboarding

Pattaya Arts Festival Beach Rd 2017

I’m guessing some of these people may have started out as graffiti artists. 🙂

Beach sculptures

Pattaya Arts Festival Beach Rd 2017

Not just paintings some nice sculptures as well.

I rather like this one

Pattaya Arts Festival Beach Rd 2017

Part turtle, part dog & pat bug I think. 🙂 

This one is nice as well

Pattaya Arts Festival Beach Rd 2017

There certainly is some talent here.

 A banana I think

Pattaya Arts Festival Beach Rd 2017

Or perhaps a banana bout that takes people screaming around the bay. 🙂

Introducing Snake Lek, whoever that is?

Street artists invited to take part in the festival are Alex face (Thailand), Mue BON (Thailand), Gong (Thailand), A.m.p. (Thailand), Bonus (Thailand), GohM (Thailand), The Yok and Sheryo (Australia), Beejoir (U.K.), The London police (Netherlands), Ben Eine (U.K.), Ox-Alien and Edo Rath (Netherlands), Emmanuel Jarus (U.K.), Jace (France), Dotmasters (U.K.) and Shinny and Himbad and Code (U.K.).

Interesting shapes

Pattaya Arts Festival Beach Rd 2017

They really look like American Indian tepees without the canvass. I not too sure what the bales of hay signify.

Baby Boy

I’m guessing the painter may have just become a father. 🙂

Bangkok Hotels Markets Shopping

Novotel Bangkok Platinum Pratunam

Bangkok Hotels Markets Shopping

Bangkok Hotels Markets Shopping

Bangkok Hotels Markets Shopping, Petchaburi Rd is surrounded by some of the best shopping in this great city. Everybody knows about Pratunam markets where you can buy clothes and accessories at rock bottom prices, now however there is much more competition at places like Palladium World and Platinum Fashion Mall which offer air conditioned comfort which you certainly don’t get at Pratunam markets.

For an excellent room rate at the Novotel Bangkok Platinum book through THIS LINK.

GLOW Pratunam Bangkok Hotels Petchaburi

Bangkok Hotels Markets Shopping

Right opposite Pantip Plaza the well known Bangkok I.T. centre. Book through THIS LINK for a discounted room rate.

Pantip Plaza

Bangkok Hotels Markets Shopping

Several floors of hardware and software, I have been shopping here for 20 years.

 Pantip Plaza

Bangkok Hotels Markets Shopping

Computer and camera shops are located on the 3rd floor, as well as hardware, RAM etc for sale. Some shops specialize in building computers to your specifications. The fourth floor has more computer and repair shops.

Platinum Fashion Mall

Bangkok Hotels Markets Shopping

 Platinum is a 5 billion Baht shopping mall in Petchaburi Rd Pratunam, almost next door to Pantip Plaza, which specializes in fashion clothes and accessories both retail and wholesale.

Baiyoke Sky Hotel

Bangkok Hotels Markets Shopping

 Baiyoke Sky Hotel was built in 1997 and is the 2nd highest building in Bangkok. For an excellent room rate book through THIS LINK.

I took this photo from the Red Sky bar above Central, on the right is the Novotel and Palladium World Shopping mall.

Amari Watergate Hotel

Bangkok Hotels Markets Shopping

 

The Amari Watergate hotel is a reasonably priced hotel in the middle of this shopping district, book through THIS LINK and you will get a discounted room for around $88 + tax.

Palladium World Shopping mall.

Bangkok Hotels Markets Shopping

Located on the corner of Phetchaburi Road and Ratchaprarop with the 3 gold domes, I believe it’s bigger and cheaper than Platinum Fashion Mall and has a bazaar type layout featuring long alleyways of tightly packed stalls.

Palladium World from street level

Bangkok Hotels Markets Shopping

It certainly does not look as spectacular as it does from the Red Sky Bar.

Foot massage at Palladium World

Bangkok Hotels Markets Shopping

After a couple of hours walking there is nothing like a foot massage. 🙂

Bangkok Hotels Markets Shopping a  25 minute walk to MBK.

Or 5 mimutes in a taxi for around B40.
