To get there To get to Pattaya Park, you will need to take a blue taxi or motorbike. Outside your hotel, assuming you stay at the White Inn, walk across the street and either wave down a blue taxi or motorbike taxi. Just tell them you want to go to Pattaya Park, about a ten minute ride. The fare will be around 50 baht or so. Blue taxis who divert from their designated path are not supposed to charge more than 50 baht for a ride anywhere in town, with as many people as you like. Be sure you agree on the price with the taxi before you get in. Once you arrive at the park, it will cost 100 baht entrance fee per person (as of 2/2000). The fee is for all day.

Pattaya Beach is about 4km long and has Beach Road running parallel to it from north to south. The northern part is the more quiet area while the southern part is on both sides of the street lined up with shops, restaurants, discotheques, bars and nightclubs. We recommend you do not do any swimming at Pattaya Beach due to its pollution.
Activities: windsurfing, water- and jet-skiing and parasailing: you can either book up in the outlets along Pattaya's Beach Road or head down to Jomtien itself and sign up there - Surf House hotel and restaurant at the north end of Jomtien's Beach Road rents out water-sports equipment, as do several nearby shops. Average prices start at about B1000 per hour for water-skiing, B200 for windsurfing, and B250 for one round of parasailing. Laser dingies start at about B300 an hour and Hobie Cats at B500 an hour.
Getting there: Jomtien Beach is a small beach resort just a short taxi ride from South Pattaya. To get there from Pattaya, simply walk along 2nd road and wave down any blue taxi. The price is 10 baht. It's only about a 6 minute ride.
Sex: Jomtien has a very limited number of Go-Go bars (Champion a Go-Go is the best) and outdoor beer bars (located right as you turn towards the beach from 2nd road), both gay and heterosexual. The main advantage of Jomtien is the serenity - there is much less traffic and fewer tourists. Also, the ocean water is clean enough to swim in and if you enjoy bathing in the sun, you'll find much company in the way of tourists (mostly European) from all over the world.
Naklua Beach is immediately north of the actual Pattaya Beach. It is more quiet than Pattaya Beach.
Kohlan Island is 45 minutes by ordinary boat or 15 minutes by speedboat, it is the largest of Pattaya’s offshore islands. A Bor Kor Sor ferry departs for Ko Larn daily from the fishing pier at 9:00 and 11:00; return is at 3:00p.m Round trip fare is 40 Baht.
Attractions include: viewing coral reefs from glass-bottom boats, snorkeling, scuba diving, windsurfing, water-skiing and parasailing. Deep-sea fishing is popular in the waters around Ko Larn and the neighboring smaller islands. There are many seafood restaurants on the island’s main beaches. Small boats for 12 person can be rented for 600-1500 Baht. Big boats for up to 100 persons cost 3,000 Baht.
Warning: Watch out for sea urchins along the shore and shallow water. The sea urchin looks like a black ball with very sharp spikes sticking out. If you step on one, you will not exactly be happy.
Pattaya undoubtedly has the hottest night life in the Orient, if not in the entire world. The wide range of Go Go bars (ie., air conditioned strip clubs and sex shows), open air beer bars (outdoor bars to meet girls), disco's (pick-up joints), and so on make this small beach town one of the best places in the world to party and get laid. To give you an idea of just how many bars there are out here, I did a "lazy man's" bar count, meaning I didn't count them all, and came up with 192 bars, starting from the bars along Walking Street on up to the large cluster of bars on Soi 7 and 8. I never made it to Soi 2 and vicinity, which must have at least another 50 bars, making the grand total well over 250 bars. Average in about 15 girls per bar and you will be looking at nearly 4,000 horny women, able and willing. Add to that another 500 free lance hookers who hang out either along Beach Road (ocean side), from late afternoon till about midnight, the malls (especially Royal Garden Plaza), and at the disco's (Tony's, Marine bar 1 & 2, Hollywood, etc.), and you have the world's greatest concentration of luscious Asian ladies the world has ever known. As a general rule, most of the bars are open from 8 p.m. and close at 2 a.m. However, this is very general as many bars are open in the afternoon, closing at dawn while some seem to never close. Note: many bars are simply "open till late" which means the bar will close after the customers stop buying drinks or the police come in and tell the management to call it a night. Tony's disco gets going around 11 p.m. and is "open till late" (usually between 3 a.m. and 4:30 a.m.), while Marine bar 1 gets going around 2 a.m. and is "open till late" (usually around 4 a.m.). After the Marine bar 1 closes, the crowd then heads over to Marine bar 2 which blasts music till dawn, giving Pattaya the world's reputation as the town that never sleeps.

OUTDOOR BEER BARS
An outdoor beer bar is an open-air bar that features blasting music, a well stocked bar, and a small to medium cluster of overly friendly girls (i.e., hookers). Most beer bars get going around 8 p.m. and close at 2 a.m.. However, many are open during the late afternoon and some never seem to close or close when customers stop buying drinks. The beer bar is the most economical way to drink and pick up girls in town. A coke will run you less than a dollar and a local beer around $1.50. Lady's drinks are generally around 90 baht or $2. The bar fine is 200 baht ($5) and the girls expect a minimum of 500 baht for a real quick fuck up to 1,000 baht for a full night of passion. The best time to get to the beer bar, if you want the best selection of women is around 8 p.m. as most girls begin to make their way in. Beer bars are scattered all over South (and Central) Pattaya, with the greatest cluster on Soi 2, 7, 8, along Beach road (Best Friends bar, bars next door to Marilyn A Go Go) and Walking street (Soi Happy a Go Go). The dress in any outdoor beer bar is as casual as it gets, most tourists showing up in shorts and T-shirts. Pattaya most likely has the largest cluster of open beer bars in the Orient, if not the entire world. It's an amazing town.
The massage parlors in Pattaya, as in Bangkok and elsewhere are really just high class whore houses. Yes, you do get a massage, an incredible one at that, but the main function of the parlor is to offer sex in a very comfortable and luxurious setting. The massage parlor is more like a brothel in that it is set up for you to have sex in the parlor itself. Hint, hint, if yon have a girlfriend or wife that you brought with you to Thailand, the massage parlor is a good place to enjoy sex without her finding out. Ahh, the Thais. Don't they think of everything!

V.I.P. Massage located on Soi Diamond, part of the Diamond Beach Hotel. Features the "sandwich massage where you can pick two girls from the "fishbowl" and have both of them massage you in the tub, on the mattress and on the bed. Then one will give you head and the other will finish you off by mounting you while the other watches. Price will run you about $75 to $100 total.
MASSAGE PARLORS EXPLAINED
When you first walk into any of the massage parlors mentioned above, there will be a huge glass plate window. Behind the window will be anywhere from ten to fifty girls, all of which have number tags on their beautiful gowns. The purpose of the number tags is so you can tell the attendant which girl (s) you want to massage you. Yes, you can have a sandwich massage, in which you get two girls at the same time. When you see a girl you like, just tell the attendant, "I like number 24" and he will get on the microphone and call out her number. The girl will then come out from behind the window and accompany you to the room where the massage takes place. Of course, you must pay in advance before the massage takes place. The price varies, but most parlors in Pattaya are very reasonable and charge only 600 baht ($15) or so for an hour and half massage. Unlike the major massage parlors in Bangkok, this price does not include tip money for sex. So if you wish to get a blow job or screw one of the massage parlor girls, you will need to tip her. If you just want a massage and no sex, that also is fine. There is no obligation to have sex with the girl (although she will be disappointed because she will not get her expected high tip). In the room where the massage takes place, there will be a huge bed, a bath tub, and various lights and mirrors to set the mood. The rooms are really quite nice and yes, it's safe. Indeed, most of the clientele are rich Asian business men who come here to relax, if you know what I mean. When you enter the room, the girl will go in with you and then leave. She's going to get the mattress, probably a few towels, and other toys. When she comes back, she will start the water in the bath tub and probably have you strip down. She will also disrobe and when the tub is filled, climb in the bath tub with you naked. Yee hah! She will then scrub you down. After the bath, she will then accompany you to the large floor space where an inflated mattress will be. You are then to lie down on the mattress and the fun begins. Caution: As you move from the bath tub to the mattress, the floor is tiled and because of the soap suds extremely slippery. So walk carefully and slowly. On the mattress the girl will do things you never dreamed of. She will use both her pussy and her breasts to massage your legs, your thighs, your back, your arms ...man, if there is a heaven this is where I want to go. After the "body to body" massage, as the Thais call it, the girl will then dry you off and accompany you to the bed. There you will get another dry massage with either baby oil or powder. After a few minutes, the girl will solicit herself sexually. If you want a blow job and/or hand job, let me tell you, most of these girls know what they hell they are doing. You can also fuck the girl, but be aware 99% of them will absolutely insist you wear a condom (not a bad idea, actually. These girls go through a lot of customers every day). My suggestion is you pass on the fuck and let the girl give you head. Most these girls has mastered the art of oral sex, let me tell you. As stated, sex is not included in the price of the massage, so you must tip the girl if you wish to have sex. Unfortunately, many of the' Customers who come here are wealthy Japanese or Taiwanese businessmen who over tip the girls, so they are used to 2,000 or even 3,000 baht tips. I doubt you will want to pay that much, so I strongly suggest you first find out from the girl how much she is expecting before getting too passionate. I would try to bargain the girl down to 500 baht for a blow job or hand job. Most likely she will want at least 1,000 baht, maybe more.

MARINE BAR DISCO
Marine Bar disco 1 is located on Walking street, right above the new Doll House A Go Go and the large Thai boxing area. The escalator takes you to the second floor where you then immediately turn left (rather than walk straight, which takes you into a Go Go bar). Inside, the disco blasts a type of "trance" music, perfectly suitable for the wild hookers and male tourists. The disco is air conditioned and rather dark inside, making the girls look all too often a bit prettier than they actually are (tip: walk the girl you're thinking of taking near the bar and bathroom area where the lighting is better to check her out). There is no cover charge, but the drinks a bit expensive (100 to 200 baht for a soda or beer). I see no harm in buying one drink and keeping the place in business. It is a great place to pick up on girls, especially between 2 a.m. and 3:30 a.m., when the girls pack it in. Most girls will expect a tip of 500 to 1,000 baht for either a quick fuck or entire night of passion. After the Marine bar 1 closes, follow the crowd to Marine Bar 2 (at the Marine Plaza hotel) where you can dance till dawn and pick up on Thai hookers who either cannot get enough sex (i.e., they just came back from fucking a customer and now are looking for seconds or even thirds) or cannot get any sex at all (i.e., nobody has yet picked them up), making the price for short time sex a real bargain (most want 500 baht for a quick fuck, but I've had a few offer it for as little as half that price. Wow!).
Tony's is located on Walking street, about a two minute walk past the Marine bar (heading away from Beach road). Tony's is a popular spot in Pattaya when it comes to disco dancing, good music and picking up on all the freelancers you can handle. Some beer bar girls go there after their bar has closed, as late as 3 a.m. Tony's has a live band nightly which blasts your favorite MTV type rock music. (You may wish to wear ear plugs as the band is extremely loud). There is no dress code, but it's suggested you dress up a bit (tennis shoes, jeans and nice shirt) as it tends to attract a more sophisticated crowd (especially on weekends) than the Marine bar disco. There is no cover charge, but between the pushy waiters, flower salesgirls, Tequila salesgirls, and cigarette salesgirls who never seem to leave you alone, there is no doubt the clubs highest priority is to squeeze you for every dime they can get out of you. Drinks run 95 baht for a soda, 70 baht for a shot of Tequila, and 150 baht on up for beer and mixed drinks. While most of the girls who come to Tony's are hookers looking for a customer, you do get the occasional non-bar girl who is there just to party (hence, not every girl there will go with you). Most girls will expect 700 to 1,000 baht tip if you take them to your room, even if it is only for short time. Tip: once you order your drink, rather than sit static at your table waiting for some babe to look you up, stroll around the entire disco checking out all the women. When one smiles as you pass her by and holds out to click your glass saying, "Choke dee" (cheers!), that's your cue to make your move.
Planet Rock Disco
THE DISCOS is where you'll find most of the freelancers that work in Pattaya. These are the girls who charge you a flat rate for sex and there is no bar fine, since they are working on their own. The going rate is about 1,000 Baht for short time. One of the bad things about some of these discos is that the lighting in them is usually very poor and you may not know what you're "really getting" as far as a man or a woman. Always check them out closely by getting them out side in the light before you invest lots of time into them. The list of discos that have the hottest babes are on our members site.
ROYAL GARDEN PLAZA
During the mid afternoon to early evenings (noon till 9 p.m.), you can pick up on girls as they hang both inside and outside (beach side, along the outdoor tables) the Royal Garden Plaza. Go upstairs to the third floor where the food stalls are, grab a coke or some Thai noodles. You'll see a handful of cuties hanging around looking for customers. How do you know which are the free lancers and which are regular girls? You can usually tell by how they respond to you. The free lancer hookers will look you right in the eye, smile, and if they see you smile back, wave you over to sit with them to chat. Of course, there won't be much to chat about since you don't speak Thai and their English is limited. To get down to business, simply say, "Go short time" or "Go hotel". If they nod their head in a quick up and down fashion, that is the Thai way of agreeing. Most of these girls will be happy with 500 baht as a tip for an hour of sex. Be sure you first consult with the girl if she "smokes" if you want a blow job; it's assumed they all fuck.
ALONG BEACH ROAD
From late afternoon till midnight, you will see girls sitting on the cement benches on the beach side of Beach road (from Soi Pattayaland 2 on up to Soi 8). They may be sitting alone or in a small group of girls. All you have to do is walk along the sidewalk and smile at any one of them and they will smile back and ask you, "where you go", or "where you stay." Some will be shy and you will have to come up to them and start the negotiations. Most of them will go short time for 500 baht. Some will stay with you all night, in which you should tip them 700 to 1,000 baht.
Caution: Not to say you cannot meet a sweetheart along the beach road, but many of the lower class prostitutes (including drug addicts) will be found in this area, rather than in the bars where they are more carefully hand picked. It's highly recommended you were a condom and secure your valuables when taking any free lancer from the beach side.
BLOW JOB BARS
Soi Post Office (the next street up from the Royal Garden Plaza) has a cluster of short time brothels in which the girls specialize in oral sex. One of the most famous is "Nice with Ice" in which the girls will put ice on your dick and in their mouth to give that extra tingling feeling. Rates vary from about 350 baht for a quickie on location to 700-800 if you wish to have the girl come to your room and suck you off there.
South Pattaya and is probably one of the safest places to hang out on this planet. Granted, no place on this earth is crime free and on rare occasion you will hear of incidents, such as tourists getting pick pocketed or on rare occasion, a robbery or murder (you may have heard about the Orchid Inn owner in Angeles City who was robbed and murdered in Pattaya. The suspect (s) are not Thais, but Middle East foreigners). During the past ten years I've traveled to Thailand, plus the two years I lived there, I never had any security problem whatsoever and all my friends who live there (many who continue to live there now) will tell you the same. Pattaya is very safe and tourists are well looked after by the Tourist Police.

MAPS OF PATTAYA
THE LEGAL AGE OF CONSENT
The age of consent in Thailand is 15 (fifteen), the age in which a Thai passes from childhood to adulthood. At the age of 15, a Thai girl is eligible to obtain a passport and an official ID card in which she no longer carries the title "dek ying" (female child), but "nang sahw" or "miss", meaning an adult woman. At that age a Thai can marry and travel internationally on his/her own. The fact that a Thai girl (or boy) has passed from childhood to adulthood at the age of 15 does not mean a foreigner can have sex with him/her without legal repercussion. Indeed, pressure from anti-sex groups who wish to impose their standards of morality on others, have resulted in laws against "falongs" (Western tourists) engaging in sex with prostitutes under the age of 18. Such laws carry more severe penalties if the prostitute is under 15. What this means is if you seek out sex with a prostitute under 18 (or even worse, under 15), you are treading on dangerous grounds. Since the vast majority of bar girls and free lance hookers in Pattaya are 18 and over, the chances of you running into a prostitute under 18 is slim; the chances of running into a prostitute in Pattaya under 15 is on the side of miraculous. With that in mind, it is not an issue one need be too concerned with.
GETTING YOUR FILM DEVELOPED
Most photo shops in Pattaya charge about the same price for developing film (about 6 baht per 4 by 6 print), but vary drastically in workmanship. The highest quality film developing will be found at the Central Color lab, located on 2nd road, directly across the street from Soi 7. This is without a doubt the best place for near professional workmanship. As is the case with most photo shops in Pattaya, your film can be developed within an hour or two, provided you request it so (if not, they may have it ready in three to four hours). If you are simply after medium grade prints, then any of the small photo shops along Beach road or the photo shop inside the Royal Garden Plaza (first floor), will suffice. Be advised that pornography is illegal in Thailand and while few shops will bother to turn you over to the police if you attempt to develop your porno there, it's best to wait to develop it in the states. That's assuming of course that your models are all clearly over the age of 18. If not, trash your film immediately and start thinking of better way to make use of your camera. "Child" (under 18) pornography in both Thailand and the US is illegal and can lead to imprisonment if caught. As for developing soft porn, such as panty shots and topless, you should not have any problem developing that anywhere in Pattaya, again provided the models do not appear to be under 18 years of age. If in doubt, trash your photos and snap shots of girls with bigger tits and more hair on their pussy.
The good news is you don't have to visit a doctor to get most prescription drugs in Pattaya. Simply walk into any of the pharmacies along 2nd road, Walking street or Beach road and tell the English speaking pharmacist what you want. If they don't have it, most likely the next one will. The chain of pharmacies, Boots, will be found on Walking street (right before Soi 14) and in the Royal Garden Plaza, 2nd floor. Being the most professional, they may not sell you prescription drugs without a doctor's prescription. No doubt, you're wondering if you can get Viagra and how much it will cost. The answer is 100 mg. run about $12 and are not available at the pharmacies, but VD Clinics. Try the clinic on Pattaya Tai, opposite side of Thai Farmer's bank, about half a block before 3rd road. It has a big blue sign, "Have Viagra".

COMMUNICATING BACK HOME
Many Internet Cafes can be found all over Pattaya, mostly along beach road, 2nd road and Walking street. Most charge 2 baht per minute, with a 10 minute minimum. However, not are all equal in modem speed, some taking minutes just to get on line. By far, the fastest and newest computers will be found at the internet cafe on the 2nd floor of the Royal Garden Plaza (beach side, last store as you exit to Swensen's Ice Cream parlor). Most internet cafes are open at 10 a.m. and close between 11 p.m. and midnight. If you need to send a fax or make an international call, do not do it at your hotel as the prices are highly inflated. Rather, go to My Office on Walking street, next door down from Marine Bar disco.
BAR GIRL SCAMS
As is typical of the bar girls throughout Thailand (Pattaya being no exception), bar girls are experts at scamming male tourists. The biggest scam occurs when a tourist makes the fatal error of falling in love with a bar girl and ends up supporting her after he has left Thailand. While the tourist continues to send support money from abroad, the bar girl plays like she has quit the bar and has stopped sleeping around with other "falongs" (Western tourists). The falong, thinking only with his dick, falls for her story and keeps sending her money (usually monthly) believing that she remains faithful only to him. The fact is she is not faithful at all, but is still working the bar (or has changed bars so he doesn't know what she is up to) and continues to fuck other falongs on a regular basis. When the falong returns to Thailand, she once again plays like she is so in love with him, working him for as much money as she can get. Eventually, with a bit of luck and sense of reality, the falong finally discovers his beloved bar girl is not the faithful princess he's dreamed of and cuts her off. However, at that point it's too late because the girl already has another two or three other guys she has suduced from around the world playing into her game, all sending her money at the same time. The moral of the story being if you are thinking seriously about falling in love and supporting a bar girl, more power to you. But just remember while you are back home depositing more money into her ATM account, she will be passionately sucking the cock of another falong who has fallen in love and would be in shock to discover he is not the only love of her life. Note: This is true of 99% of the bar girls in Pattaya who have men support them. If you are currently supporting a bar girl, despite your believe "she would never do that because she's not like the others", the fact is that is exactly what she is doing. In fact, good chance she is the very girl my friend or I just banged the other night. Sorry, the it's our job to tell it like it is.
