Words from the editor. Just words, but where do they come from and how do they affect people? I am not sure but they keep coming to me. Sometimes I get inspired by events that have taken place recently and I need to put my thoughts into words.
Cartoon Network Water Park
Ramayana Water Park
|Colosseum Show Pattaya is apparently the new place in town for transvestite cabaret shows. Many of you will have heard of Alcazar’s or Tiffany’s Transvestite Shows in Pattaya and now we will have one on Thepprasit Road right next to the new Ratanakorn Market on Thepprasit.

Who wants to live in a dog house?
|If you have been to Pattaya once you will definitely want to come back. And if you haven’t already purchased yourself a condo in Pattaya you will need a place to stay. Which Beach Hotel will it be? I highly recommend you to stay at a hotel in the beach area since Pattaya is a beach resort. There are more than 70 hotels on the beach area list. I will forgive you if you leave Pattaya to spend a few days in Bangkok. Hotels in the Pratunam-Siam Area or along the Sukhumvit Road must be recommended.|
A story about Money, People and Property Bubbles
Once upon a time there was a very poor man who had no friends at all. He did not have any money for transportation so he had to walk if he wantet to go somewhere.

Bangkok’s new Skytrain – MRT Purple Line
|Purple Skytrain. This is not just a Mega Project, this is an awesome Ultra Mega Project with a budget of more than 1 Billion U$ Dollars. Bangkok will soon get a new Purple Skytrain system with 16 stations and soon in this case means around 2015. The 23-kilometer railway system will not be called BTS like the old Skytrain, instead it will be called the MRT Purple Line. Just like the BTS, the new MRT Purple Line will be an elevated train system.|
Hua Hin versus Pattaya
Every time I visit Hua Hin I wonder if I am living the right place. I like quiet and peaceful surroundings and Hua Hin and Cha-Am certainly offer that. We have more of everything in Pattaya, after all Pattaya is the second largest city in Thailand.
Centara Grand Pratumnak
Koh Sichang (เกาะสีชัง) or Koh Si Chang
Koh Sichang (เกาะสีชัง) is a hilly island located 12 km away from a city called Sriracha (ศรีราชา). Sriracha is located about 30 km north of Pattaya, that is a 20-minute drive depending on the traffic. During the 45-minute boat trip to Koh Sichang you will see large freight ships and hundreds of barges anchored near the island as this is one of the places where large ships stop to discharge their cargo into barges. I certainly do not the need these tankers to spoil the scenic views so the next time I visit I will ask them to find another spot to hang around. Read more….
People, people, people. People everywhere, that is how it is in most parts of Bangkok. Watergate Pavillion is located in the popular tourist district of Pratunam (ประตูน้ำ), a district filled with shopping malls and hotels. Read more….
Wat Khao Din Tewaanimit – the secret hidden temple
Let’s face it, you will never find Wat Khao Din Tewaanimit or Wat Taavorn Pattana-raam (วัด เขาดินเทวานิมิต or ถาวรพัฒนาราม) unless I personally take you by the hand and lead you there myself. The temple is situated on the top of a hill somewhere in the middle of nowhere not far from Pattaya. Few tourists visit this temple because of the remote location and because only the locals know of its existence.
Unless you have got that curiosity gene in you and unless you are being persistent, you don’t stand a chance at finding this temple. In life in general, being persistent means that you might have a chance of achieving success. Read more….
Viharn Sien Secret Chinese Temple – Anek Kusala Sala
Viharn Sien or Viharnra Sien (วิหารเซียน) is a very beautiful and unique three-storey Chinese temple located on the same grounds as the Wat Yansangwararam temple yet Viharn Sien is very different from that temple.
Viharn Sien is definitely one of the six wonders of Pattaya – I was overwhelmed by the impressions I received while discovering the area. You simply must visit this temple at least once in your life, otherwise you will miss out on a great experience. I was there with my daughter on 19 december 2012 at 8 o’clock in the morning at the time when the temple open up for visitors. I felt privileged because we had the whole temple with all of its attractions to ourselves. Read more….
Viharn Sien Chinese Temple – Part 2
Master Sa-nga Kulkobkiat was born in Bangkok on Monday 18th October 1925 and grew up in the People’s Republic of China. He was an elder statesman who devoted himself to popularization of Thai and Chinese cultures. Master Sa-nga Kulkobkiat initiated, designed and supervised the construction of the Viharn Sien Chinese Temple. He is admired for his wisdom and is respected as a man who adhered to high ethical and moral principles. We will go a bit more into the details in Part 2 of Viharn Sien Temple. Read more…
Bang Saray Property Boom imminent
I have fallen totally in love with Bang Saray (บางเสร่). Bang Saray is an undiscovered gem. You don’t need to be a self proclaimed expert or an extraordinarily clever individual to understand that Bang Saray necessarily will experience a property boom in the near future. The opening of the two huge water parks in Bang Saray in 2013 – Ramayana Water Park that will be the largest in south-east asia and Cartoon Network Amazone – will definitely have an impact in and around Bang Saray.
Bang Saray is located 18 km from Pattaya near Nong Nooch Garden and I predict that rapid changes of an unseen scale will take place. It is a logical consequence of the strong growth in visitors and tourists coming to this specific region from Bangkok and from all over the world. The increasing number of tourists that come to spend time in either of the two water parks will need accommodation so Kobi and Rony must wake up and build some 4-star hotels in Bang Saray. If they don’t do it other developers will. Read more….
Koh Laan Island
White sandy beached and crystal clear water. This is the words that some of the developers use when they describe the beaches in Pattaya. Maybe a mild exaggeration because the water in Pattaya is definitely not clean. Maybe they were thinking about Koh Laan, an island 35 minutes away from Pattaya by boat because the water is much clearer out there and the beaches are much nicer.
You can arrive at Ta Waen Pier, there you will find Ta Waen Beach that is the biggest and most crowded beach. It is actually a quite nice area, and the walkway or the walking street is kind of cosy, just look at the pictures below. Then there is Samae Beach, also a very big beach but less crowded and no walking street. The main city is Na Baan that also has a pier, Na Baan Pier. Na Baan also has a temple, a school, a police station and a 7-Eleven. It is probably just a matter of time before there will be a Mc Donald Restaurant on the island.
You can rent a motor cycle for 200 – 300 Baht per day, the motor cycle service is ok, prices from 40 Baht – 50 Baht will not ruin your budget. Read more….
