Pattaya, Thailand | Another face of the sexy city that never sleeps

Pattaya-Pattaya, Thailand | Another face of the sexy city that never sleeps

Summer in Pattaya

Occasionally, I also want to talk about what this city looks like behind the neon lights.
  
When I went to Pattaya for the first time, I didn’t like this coastal city. The company I joined is a local company in Thailand that specializes in tourism services (other businesses include real estate, hotels and shows). In order to familiarize myself with the business, I went on a trip with one of the company's groups, which was from Bangkok to Pattaya. journey.
  
Having grown up by the sea, I don’t have much special feelings about the common sea. In addition, the tour group has a tight schedule, so I don’t have a good feeling about Pattaya, and the consumption is also high.
  
In the bustling city of Pattaya, which has long been stereotyped, what impressed me was not the eye-catching girls in the red light district or the shemale sisters who were so beautiful that people couldn’t bear to close their eyes, but a family. Street shop. It's not that his restaurant is very good, but because when we were looking for food, there was a man in the store who kept saying hello and thank you in clumsy Chinese to solicit customers on the street. Because he was too enthusiastic, we finally chose to eat here. .
  
The price is not expensive, and the food is quite delicious. During this period, the big brother soliciting customers has been very enthusiastic and entertained us. He also helped us run errands to buy cigarettes. After buying the cigarettes, he continued to work hard on the streets to solicit customers. I had a good impression of him, so I taught him to say in Chinese, "Welcome, please come and have dinner." He was very helpful and got a table of guests on the spot, haha.
  
In such a hot weather, I saw him smiling so happily, and I couldn't help but laugh too.

The hotel I stayed in at that time was owned by the company. The environment was very good and the sea was right outside my door.
  
The second time I went to Pattaya was three years later. My husband went to Pattaya to do the market due to work assignment. At that time, I was still busy with work and couldn't leave, so I didn't bother him for two weeks until I finally had a vacation. I decided to pack up my backpack and leave from Bangkok. Cycling down to Pattaya.

I just sent a message to my husband before departure saying that I was going there. He asked me how I planned to come, so I took this photo for him
Bangkok is more than 130 kilometers away from Pattaya. kilometers, I filled up the tank at the gas station, set up my phone and turned on the navigation, and headed towards Pattaya. I looked at my phone at the gas station, and my colleague sent me a message saying, I’m afraid it’s inconvenient for you to look at your phone on the road, so I’ll reply to your business this afternoon. Please pay attention to your safety while riding. My heart is really sweet.

When I was still more than 40 kilometers away from Chonburi, I stopped at a rest stop to use the toilet and bought a can of iced peach tea
I rode the whole journey for three times It took more than an hour to arrive in Pattaya. My husband's dormitory is right at Jomtien Beach. He hurriedly took leave and came out to greet me. Thailand has entered the hot season, and Pattaya is embraced by the sea breeze and is actually not as hot as Bangkok. The bougainvillea bloomed brightly on the road, and the foreigners on vacation walked lightly. The depressed mood in the office was suddenly liberated. I took off my motorcycle mask and took a deep breath of the slightly cool sea breeze.

Leisure of a tourist city

I only have one motorcycle at home, and I ride it. My husband has been here for two weeks. He doesn’t have a car and doesn’t want to walk out on a hot day. It’s boring. No, if you see me coming, you must take me to see Pattaya by bike.
  
Because of my different mood, I seemed to have peeked into the bustling backside of Pattaya.

The weather was too hot, so I found a place called "Tea" but it was The flower shop selling coffee is taking a break. The owner keeps a few cats. Pattaya’s nightlife is mainly concentrated in the Jomtien area, such as the familiar red light district (not pictured here). In order to "recover" the memory of three years ago, I went to the red light district. The neighborhood is still filled with the familiar wave of people, advancing wave by wave along the street. Whether there are strippers or escort girls along the street, they are still so eye-catching.
  
Among the many signboards with ambiguous lighting, there is also an inconspicuous ice cream sign. Looking past the white-haired old man eating ice cream, the cold white and steady light seems to be the way to isolate them from the gaudy smoke. barrier.
  
To be honest, I still don’t like this side of Pattaya.

Back to Bangkok

I replaced the motorcycle with a new chain before leaving the city. While the master was disassembling and assembling it, I sat beside him and stared at the thick blue sky in a daze. A foreigner stopped at the fried chicken shop opposite and asked the shop owner to come out and buy fried chicken.
  
At that time, I had the idea of ​​"what if I move to Pattaya". I just feel like I can come and go as I please in this vast world.

Back in Bangkok, I found a new guest at home

The last reason I decided to go to Pattaya was that my husband bought a motorcycle and came to Bangkok to visit me on weekdays. , when he returned at the weekend, he mentioned to me that the company over there lacked a Thai receptionist, why don’t you try?
  
I nodded.

Start again

The day we prepare to leave Pattaya is the anniversary of the Chakri Dynasty and the National Day of Thailand.
  
I have always been taken care of by my Malay friend in Bangkok. I always call him my Malay grandmother. On the day of departure, my Malay grandmother cooked me a delicious meal and told my husband, "I leave my granddaughter to you now, and you can't make her unhappy." My eyes turned red after hearing this, and my Malay grandmother quickly said, remember to go back home to Bangkok for dinner during the holidays.
  
I feel like I have a home in Bangkok.

The National Day holiday is quite lively

The placement in Pattaya was very fast, my husband found I live in an apartment near the sea. Twenty meters out of the door is Jomtien Beach, and it only takes 12 minutes to go to work by bike. We often walk along the seaside at night. The back of the apartment is a road that is still being developed, and there are very few people. Sometimes after get off work, we will buy drinks and snacks and sit on the road to enjoy the cool air. If stray dogs come around, they will also give up. Some food out.

Colleagues in the new company are easier to get along with, but for some reason, there is always a sense of alienation among Chinese colleagues. The ones who take the initiative to chat with me every day are those who do The little girl who welcomes guests is a native of Pattaya, with dark skin and a very hearty smile.

The environment at work, the dog is raised by the gardener's aunt

In the first few days of joining the company, the boss was familiar with the environment and took me to various points to discuss business. They haven't opened the Huyuan line for a long time, so they wanted to know if they could take advantage of my language. I went to the Tiger Park with me semi-reluctantly (I don’t like animal shows).

I took a group photo while the little tiger was taking a nap. I like animals very much, but I care about it. The ones in the cage looked different again...

The Songkran holiday soon came, and Pattaya was a few days later than the carnival in Bangkok. I didn’t know it before. The Water Splashing Festival is also divided into "time differences".

Because there were still customers to receive, I just watched other people party in the first two days, and went home to play "Big Cousin 2" in the evening

Because I was driving, they put on my glass " "Send" a heart

I finally finished the work on the third day, and the boss gave me a day off. I didn’t want to go shopping in the city. I thought of my Thai friend who mentioned before that the only aircraft carrier in Thailand is parked in Pattaya. It’s an elegant military port, so go and see it.

Looking at the sea, Pattaya is blue to me

Still on Songkran holiday Inside, the roads were still full of revelers, but the military port was unusually quiet. I still don't understand whether the naval base is actually open to outsiders. There are three or four inspection posts before entering the base, but we just stopped to say hello, and they gave us a sign to let us go, which was very cordial.

Running around, I don’t know where the aircraft carrier is, and I don’t know how to speak the Thai language of the aircraft carrier

This kind of environment is what I yearn for

I grew up by the sea, and my home is also very close to the naval base. When I was a child, that was my back garden, where I picked coconuts and stole pomegranates. , and smashed the glass of the Public Theater. The mother of a classmate of mine grew vegetables in the navy, so sometimes we would help water the vegetables, but it was actually to catch shrimps in the pond next to her.
  
When I grew up, the naval base was no longer allowed to enter, so the trip to the Royal Thai Naval Base reminded me of the fun of my childhood. Although I didn't see the aircraft carrier (maybe it was sailing?), I accidentally bumped into an old navy's birthday party, which was held in the open space. Many people came.
  
There is also a residential area in the base, which is the most comfortable living environment for me. It is a single-family house, a quiet community, people chat under the trees, and monkeys are knocking fruits on the trees (there are real monkeys).

Because I like it here very much, I even bought "merchandise"

Back at Jomtien Beach at night, there was still noisy singing and dancing, so we found a place that was almost On the deserted coast, watching the docked fishing boats undulating with the waves is both leisurely and relaxing.

If you think about it carefully, Pattaya is actually a livable city. Outside the tourist areas and bustling urban areas, prices are quite normal. In addition to the permanent local population, there are tourists, and tourists are mobile. In some places, there are so few people and cars that dogs sleep directly on the road.
  
For such a city, I still hope everyone can come and see the other side of it.
