Remarkable Temple Chiang Mai Thailand

Renovated in 1804 & 1998.

Remarkable Temple Chiang Mai Thailand In  1804, Kruba Thueang Natsilo, a former abbot, also had the temple renovated. It became far more exquisite with Lanna-style architecture. The abbot intended to turn it into a beautiful place of worship with religious teachings. He hoped this would attract more people to the temple so that they would have a chance to learn about the religion. 

Ring the bell folks. πŸ™‚

Excellent Beachside Pattaya Restaurant

July 1, 2017 by David Herd

Surf & Turf

Excellent Beachside Pattaya Restaurant

Excellent Beachside Pattaya Restaurant

 Excellent Beachside Pattaya Restaurant offers good food in a great seaside location on Wongamat beach. There’s a huge menu & my only complaint is the wine cost, like many other Pattaya restaurants they do not offer a glass of house wine for between B120 & B150. This oversight certainly costs them customers.

What a fabulous view

Excellent Beachside Pattaya Restaurant

I prefer lunch over dinner for two reasons, the fabulous view & I find the wine far too expensive at night.

As you can see the beer prices are fine.

Let’s take a look at the food

Excellent Beachside Pattaya Restaurant

My seafood pasta was very good indeed.

Scallop Mornay was excellent.

Just looking at this photo makes my mouth water. πŸ™‚

Succulent Oysters

Excellent Beachside Pattaya Restaurant

As you can see, the food is beautifully presented.

Spanish Paella

Excellent Beachside Pattaya Restaurant

One of the many interesting dishes on the extensive menu.

 Chicken, onion rings, sweet corn , YUM!

Excellent Beachside Pattaya Restaurant

 By now you probably realize why this is a favorite Excellent Beachside Pattaya Restaurant.

Spinach soup, what a great color.

Excellent Beachside Pattaya Restaurant

Often a soup & a selection of entrees suits me better than a large main meal.

TripAdvisor rating

Excellent Beachside Pattaya Restaurant

TripAdvisor rate Surf & Turf 111 out of 870 restaurants in Pattaya. I’m a little surprised there are only 870, I really thought there were more. On another subject I have never been a fan of food served on wooden plates, I just wonder whether are are as hygienic as normal plates?

Two visitors from Australia

Mum Aroi Pattaya Seafood Restaurant

June 14, 2017 by David Herd

Lunch by the Bay

Mum Aroi Pattaya Seafood Restaurant

Mum Aroi Pattaya Seafood Restaurant Mum Aroi Pattaya Seafood Restaurant is on the waterfront in Naklua. At low tide the view is not very attractive & the restaurant itself resembles a large barn. Put all that aside & just enjoy the fabulous fresh seafood & quick efficient service.

A big tin shed

Mum Aroi Pattaya Seafood Restaurant The customers who regularly eat here would be 95% Thai, mainly because tourists would never walk past or hear about it.

Location

Mum Aroi Pattaya Seafood Restaurant

Either catch a Baht bus from the Dolphin roundabout or just hire a taxi. Believe me it’s worth the effort. 

What about the food you ask?

Mum Aroi Pattaya Seafood Restaurant Fresh, reasonably priced & lots to choose from.

Clams with lots of garlic

Mum Aroi Pattaya Seafood Restaurant Delicious, in Australia we call them pippies.

Prawns cooked to perfection

Mum Aroi Pattaya Seafood Restaurant Fresh & cooked to perfection.

Why are they are so fresh?

Mum Aroi Pattaya Seafood Restaurant Shortly before they arrive at your table they are happily swimming around without a care in the world. πŸ™‚

Salted fish, a Thai specialty.

Mum Aroi Pattaya Seafood Restaurant Thai’s have mastered salted fish, one of their many terrific dishes.

Mum Aroi Pattaya Seafood Restaurant

Mum Aroi Pattaya Seafood Restaurant Being an amateur camera enthusiast I’m more than happy with the low tide mudflats of Naklua, it provides so many more photo opportunities.

Can you imagine the “for sale” sign?

Mum Aroi Pattaya Seafood Restaurant Needs a little work. πŸ™‚

 Mum Aroi Pattaya Seafood Restaurant

Mum Aroi Pattaya Seafood Restaurant That’s my late great friend Larry Krausz who sadly passed away in January 2017 after suffering a major stroke. We were friends for nearly 30 years & I think of him often.

Pineapples & Melons

 photo eed2a397-b519-499a-aae5-4848c9a70082.jpg So it doesn’t just sell seafood. πŸ™‚

Fresh crabs

Mum Aroi Pattaya Seafood Restaurant

Always a battle to eat but well worth the fight. πŸ™‚

 Not attractive at low tide

Mum Aroi Pattaya Seafood Restaurant However the food is so good you won’t even notice the mud flats.

Very good Pattaya sports bar

Retox Sports Bar Soi Honey Pattaya

Retox Sports Bar Soi Honey Pattaya

Retox Sports Bar Soi Honey Pattaya

 Retox Sports Bar Soi Honey Pattaya has more TV screens showing sport from all over the world than any other bar in Pattaya.

No smoking section

Thankfully 1/3 of the huge bar is non smoking so this suits me fine.

Still non smoking

This is the other end of the non smoking section, the service is always good just ring the bell & a girl comes running.

Did I mention the service? πŸ™‚

Retox Sports Bar Soi Honey Pattaya

 Great value breakfast

Retox Sports Bar Soi Honey Pattaya

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall

June 8, 2017 by David Herd

Renovated Shopping Mall

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall is only five minutes from where I live so I am often there enjoying Starbucks or the many good restaurants.

Sichuan Restaurant

 photo f570009c-4df7-449c-8d7e-731fe16085d7.jpg This is one of the many exotic restaurants at Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall.

Delicious food

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall Reasonably priced & a little bit spicy as you can imagine. πŸ™‚

Central bar surrounded by restaurants

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall The biggest problem is deciding where to eat, there are just so many choices.

I really like the hamburgers here.

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall Lots of choices between Thai or imported beef & totally delicious. πŸ™‚

Thai cheeseburger

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall The cheeseburger is usually my choice, I really need to try some of the other varieties.

Strike up the band

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall Most nights this band seems to be entertaining the customers.

Mango & sticky rice

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall Always after a hamburger I must have this magnificent Thai delicacy. 

Fancy food trucks

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall Mobile pop up restaurants add some colour & movement to the Marina forecourt.

Welcome sign is like a lighthouse.

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall I often wonder why they call the mall Central Marina as it’s 500 meters from Pattaya Bay. πŸ™‚

MK Restaurant

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall Without a doubt MK is one of best Pattaya restaurants for value with a great selection of food. 

Dim Sum

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall The dim sum is my favorite closely followed by their roast duck & BBQ pork. My bill is usually under B400 or $15 aud. Take a look at their menu here.

Huge chandelier

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall Quite spectacular hanging from the high ceiling in the front section of the mall.

Sushi Hina

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall

One of the many Japanese restaurants at the Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall, along with Korean & Chinese.

There is even a Playboy Cafe

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall One of the first in a chain being opened in Thailand.

If you are a Playboy…

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall This is the place for you.

 Low cost food everywhere.

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall Lots of low cost food at Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall.

Another Japanese restaurant.

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall Japanese is certainly the dominant cuisine at Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall.

Just one year ago

Central Marina Pattaya Shopping Mall Here is how the centre looked.

The renovation took about 8 months.

Pattaya webcam only shows you a small part of this great holiday location.  Pattaya is a city of extremes, anything your heart desires is available here, from fabulous five star hotels & restaurants to down & dirty backstreet beer bars offering sex drugs & rock & roll. OK, so we admit there is sex in the city but there is so much more to this wonderful seaside resort, four million tourists each year can’t be wrong. Only 90 minutes south of Bangkok airport and thousands of miles from stress.

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

May 19, 2017 by David Herd

Beefeater Steakhouse & Pub

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants I’m highlighting all offer excellent Australian export quality beef as well as some other delightfull dishes. Above is the Beefeater located on Soi Diana near 2nd Road in Pattaya. You can enter the restaurant from directly from Soi Diana Inn, or from the Central Shopping Arcade off 2nd Road (across from Mike Shopping Mall).  Phone Number: 038-720-926.

Fillet Steak – ranging from 150g to 400g

Ribeye Steak – 250g

One of the things I like about Beefeater is the fact they offer fillet steak in a multiple of sizes so you can order to suit your appetite.

Beefeater Location

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

 

Opposite the rear of Mike shopping mall.

Toast Skagen at beefeater

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

The Beefeater owner/chef hails from Scandinavia which is a bonus for me as toast skagen is one of my favourite entres, in fact I sometimes drop in for lunch on the weekend & order two. πŸ™‚

I rate Beefeater 4 Stars.

Patrick’s Belgium Steakhouse

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

Terrific restaurant in an arcade opposite the Beefeater. Excellent Aussie steaks and the best Oxtail soup in Pattaya. I’m with Greg Clee and Hamish Elton.

Patricks

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

The steak is always excellent, the only downside is they overcharge for wine.  I personally think the steaks here are better than the Beefeater, however one litre of house wine is grossly overpriced at B1200, compared to B700 at Beefeater.

Desert at Patricks

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

Always a delight & difficult to choose between the crepe & the Belgium waffles. πŸ™‚

I also rate Patricks 4 stars.

Steak & Co Soi Lenkee

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

Only a 10 minutes walk from Patricks & the Beefeater, straight up So Diana, across Soi Buakaow into Soi Lengkee.

Steak & Co

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

I assure you you will search for a long time in Pattaya to find a better steak. Aussie prime beef cooked to perfection. They serve only the finest improted Australian Black Angus, Wagyu and USDA Prime Beef. Also a wide selection of Wines, Imported or Craft beer to accompany your meal.

Soi Buakaow just turn into Soi Lengkee.

I rate Steak & Co 5 stars.

 Siamese Cuisine in Naklua Road

Popular Pattaya Steak Restaurants

Opposite Woodlands about 200 metres from the Dolphin roundabout this excellent restaurant serves a very good steak as well as many other dishes.

Welcome to Sin City

Beer Babes LadyBoys Pattaya Soi 6

Beer Babes LadyBoys Pattaya Soi 6
Beer Babes LadyBoys Pattaya Soi 6, it’s all here & only a short walk from my Condo, surprisingly I rarely go there. I find it too noisy & too many LadyBoys are there plying their trade. Sometimes however it is a lot of fun watching the madness with good friends and cold beer.

I suppose there my be many people who would think this is a girl, but to any one living here it is obviously a man.

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

Soi 6 is not known for top shelf babes

Beer Babes LadyBoys Pattaya Soi 6

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.

Sunday July 19 2015

Beer Babes LadyBoys Pattaya Soi 6

 My day began with an innocent glass of champagne at midday at the Mantra Restaurant & Bar, and ended 11 hours later in Soi 6 with an ungainly nosedive onto the road leaving Saigon Lady. I blame Hamish Elton & Todd J Fox for keeping me captive and forcing copious amounts of beer, wine, Jack Daniels & Sambuca down my throat, all against my will of course.

Down but not out

Beer Babes LadyBoys Pattaya Soi 6

I’m lucky I didn’t break my bloody neck.

Being led into temptation

I’m under extreme pressure here trying to resist temptation. πŸ™‚

Here is a TripAdvisor review on one of the well known Soi 6 bars;

5 of 5 starsReviewed 9 October 2014
I have been here loads of times over the years , what impresses me the most is the owners desire to look after his guests , regardless of whether or not you are a regular here or it’s your first visit he does look after his guests . There i was drinking away , minding my own business and a huge platter of sandwiches were being passed around , on another occasion i was off on a trip to ban chang and before we left chris ( the owner ) passed a carrier bag with beers in it !!!!! . There are thousands of bars in Pattaya , but there are only a handful of bar owners who have grasped the concept of looking after your guests , you will visit once and then you will realise what i am saying is true ……. even better , he ‘s a good lad ……. cos he is from Yorkshire ……. well what are you waiting for …….. off ya pop !! . By the way you are wasting your time talking about football with him , he knows bugger all about it ……… he is a Leeds Utd fan
