World Cup, Pattaya Style

With the wet season underway, many people are looking for indoor entertainments. So why not enjoy the time of year for football (soccer) season on Walking Street. Many gogo bars these days have live sport on tv as well as dancers, for example Champagne in LK Metro or Mistys on Soi 15 Walking Street. And of course, there are always screens available at Soi 6 bars. For sports bars there are also many options in LK Metro, or try Retox around the Soi Buakhow area with branches on Soi Honey and Soi Lengkee. Take an umbrella, a plastic poncho or both when you head out just in case you get caught needing to go somewhere, or call a reliable taxi service like Nam taxi.

The weather has been harsh lately with Chonburi province being placed on alert.

District Chief Anucha Intasorn has issued a warning against swimming in the ocean at this time, and for small boats to stay in port. A strong monsoon system in the area has whipped up waves of 2-3 meters

So no speedboats or water activities such as paragliding for now. On the plus side it means that it is even more of a buyers market than usual when it comes to bar fines. Keep an eye out for drinks promotions and remember, you can often find dancers or bar girls in the night clubs after work, especially if it has been a quiet day. Get her line or facebook contact and meet up later. Remember to check our list of guest friendly hotels so you can bring back new friends that you may meet in your travels without worrying about being robbed or worse.
