Keith In Pattaya – Thailand

Blogging my way around Pattaya and sometimes Thailand



Fly Koh Larn, Koh Larn Island, Pattaya, Thailand.

Ok this is what it is all about! Up there in silence flying on the rising wind from the west Meanwhile, we are starting from Pattaya’s Bali Hai Pier, we need to negotiate the Covid assault course, to get on a boat to Koh Larn Island, where Fly Koh Larn operate from. So we are off, leaving Pattaya’s Bali Hai Pier on a speedboat. The ferry leaves from here too and is a fair bit cheaper, at 30 baht. We arrived a bit late for the ferry, and with faffing about with the App, before we were allowed on the pier, we were a bit tight to get the 09.00am […]

Udon Thani, Isaan, North East, Thailand.

Just a day out in Udon Thani. My first trip up here. Lots of stuff going on so it can be difficult to choose which places to visit. Just an hour and a quarter for a flight from Pattaya U-Tapao to Udon International Airport or about a nine hour drive along 690 Km of the route 7, route 9 and route 2 roads. We randomly chose the Thanbury Hotel, situated near to some of the bars and restaurants as well as Central Plaza Shopping Mall. A new, modern and pleasant hotel, they have car parking and a lift for the lazy (ok thats me then!) and included a buffet breakfast. […]

The Glass House Beachfront Restaurant and Bar, Najomtien Beach, Pattaya

This is a great place to relax and have some really good food, have a Cake with Coffee or a Cold drink. Make it romantic or bring the kids for family time. It has spectacular views of the beach and seafront, and you can sit on the beach or under cover with seating on three floors! The place is really large and rambling with lots of choices of seating, including some with Aircon. So I said to the waiter ” Do you have Crabs Legs ?” He said ” No, it’s just the way that I walk! “ There are lots of tables for extended family gatherings here! Or you […]

The Robin Hood Tavern, Pattaya, Thailand.

The Robin Hood Tavern, at The Avenue, Second Road, Pattaya, Thailand. This is a great place to pop in or meet up for some Good Grub and a Beer or just a Snack and a Coffee.

The Avenue is an open Mall which rambles round an open central area which fronts onto Second Road, with a fair assortment of outlets, one of which is the Robin Hood Tavern. They are on the first floor with a large and well laid out bar area, seating about 90 and there is an outside seating area […]

Sawang Boriboon Foundation, Pattaya, Thailand.

It started out as a Thai-Chinese Buddhist Humanitarian Charitable Organization founded in 1948. They have a place very near to Naklua Fish Market in Pattaya, Thailand. It is a good place to go to make Merit, that is to give something away or help others, to try and get a bit of good luck, sometimes for your birthday or sometimes because your luck is a bit thin to non existent, or maybe donate some money for no reason! I guess it is a reflection of the Buddhist Philosopy of doing good for others to get brownie points! Not only run by donations but by some staff and a lot of […]
