Pattaya here I come!
I have discovered that the best way to see the sights of Pattaya, Thailand is on a scooter – no no not the scootie my brother bought me from Hong Kong, but this REAL scooter which you can rent for two days at Baht 400. The guy gives you a helmet too.
The only other thing you need is Google Maps (or a paper map if you are digitally challenged) and off you go!
On my visit to Thailand last week, despite my fear of falling off scooters/motorbikes (a childhood accident is responsible for this fear), I toured Pattaya beach, the crocodile farm, went to see the large golden statue of Buddha, had lunch at the Rabbit Resort, went to watch a movie, and on several shopping trips. The petrol cost peanuts. Overnight the scooter was parked in the hotel carpark. Best way to have a holiday on a small budget. No need for an Avis or Budget Rent-a-Car or a hotel limo. Try it next time you are there. It is way cool and lots of fun. 🙂
