Pattaya Beach - Thailand


Oh-my-goodness! Pattaya was akin a beehive on this Saturday. Traffic, honking, tut-tut zooming in and out, and crazily packed with all sorts of people, including locals. I suppose weekends are like this in Pattaya, what more its a public holiday. Nevertheless, I still wanted to take a look at Pattaya beach while my bestie was picking up groceries in Central Mall. So, I excused myself, I carefully crossed over the busy street and I arrived at the beach. Beach is just across Central Mall, I stood around, later, I sat at one of the long laze benches at the canopies shaded area, while still glimpsing at the people. Fun in the sun, some were pleasuring themselves with bottles of beer, couples lazing together and traders busy making money. 


Some unruly foreigners as well, as always, those who get drunk because booze is cheap in Thailand, just after five minutes or so, one of the male traders walked towards me, asking me to order a drink. I refused, he persisted, I ignored him, he still wouldn't leave me alone. Then came the ugly truth. He told me that if I don't order a drink, I am not allowed to sit here. What? Is this some sort of joke or since I was alone, he was trying to act funny. Whatever, I still refused, but he continued to persist by staring at me. I then thought its best for me to bolt. I got up and wanted to immediately cross the road. Then again, with the madness of traffic, it actually took me some time. Nevertheless, thank god, I managed to quickly walk into the mall and joined my bestie again. What a memory at Pattaya beach.
