Editor Talk Now we are finally moving into the low-season months on the Pattaya tourism scene after a long and busy high season. This is a great time to visit Pattaya. The streets are quieter, there is more room to swing a cat around and if you are on a manly holiday to the city and are in your 40s and 50s, you are a ‘sexy man’ again, as opposed to being ‘papa’. If you are looking for some interesting things to do in the city this month, let Pattaya City Uncovered point you in the right direction. If you are looking for some exciting fun on Walking Street, we would suggest you visit the Stars Club, which is an erotic cabaret bar on the Street that is stylish, exotic and hedonistic. With some top-notch shows and an elegant interior, if you are looking for something a bit more upscale and stylish for a night out, we would highly recommend the Stars Club Pattaya. Alternatively, if you are looking to find out more about a night out visiting go-go clubs on Walking Street, we have some excellent information for you this month that will take your holiday to the next level. One of the best part about being on holiday is getting the chance to dine out every night of the week and to try out all manner of cuisine style. One of the best options directly on Pattaya Beach Road for beachside Italian dining is the classy La Costa by L’Italiano, which is home to the most stunning Italian flavors in the city. If you are seeking the ultimate sports pub experience this month to keep in touch with not only the conclusion of the EPL football seasons, but also the myriad of Aussie sports currently taking place, get yourself over to the I-Rovers Sports Bar on Soi Lk Metro. Make sure you keep a copy of Pattaya City Uncovered handy so you can conveniently find the best business in the city to elevate your Pattaya holiday to the next level. Take care, The Editor

Pattaya through the Eyes of an Alien

08

pattaya city uncovered


It would not be a far stretch of the imagination for an alien to mistake the flashing neon lights of Walking Street Pattaya for a landing pad at the secret military/industrial complex in Rayong. Oh, you didn’t know about that place? And if an alien did crash land on Pattaya Beach Road, not only would he be the one mind blown, but the motorbike taxi drivers would chastise and gang up on him for taking up their prime parking spots on the roadside. With so many strange characters already frequenting Pattaya, most notably from the Arian and Nordic races of Northern Europe, and the strange and cheap people from the Indian sub-continent, our confused alien crash victim who we only know as ‘Dave’ would certainly not appear out of place. As he makes his way past Mike’s Shopping Mall, Dave would be accosted by a street hawker who has ‘the perfect sunglasses for those oversized black eyes of yours falang!” He would also be stopped in his tracks by calls from a Nepalese tailor who has the “perfect tie for you geezer”, mistaking him for a drunken English football hooligan. Must be the black eyes again! Once our alien friend dodged the drunken sandal-wearing Bavarians gathering outside KFC and Burger King and headed over to the beach side of the road, he was surprised to see the confused looks on the faces of tourists. They were not confused from looking at Dave’s misshapen head and grey skin, but out of astonishment by the curvy shape of the local ladyboys who appeared to be men dressed as women… with boobs. “This is weird place,” thought Dave, who was born on an aquatic planet and had both male and female sexual organs

and gills, but somehow could not get his head around someone who had breasts and a penis at the same time. At least Dave could go and f#@k himself any time he wanted to, he mused. One thing Dave couldn’t fathom was why the men on the roadside dressed in brown uniforms who he assumed to be police were taking what appeared to be money from people who had not done anything wrong and clearly didn’t have much money in the first place. Dave thought the rules of right and wrongdoing must be different on Planet Earth. He was half right! To his right, two motorbikes almost crashed with each other to loud noises and nobody battered an eyelid even though one was driving in the opposite direction of the traffic flow. “We even had driving rules in space and I didn’t see even an asteroid for 20 light years”, thought Dave. Then in the distance, Dave finally saw it. All-consuming lights jutting out of the floor into the sky and every direction like some ungodly creation. Screams of passion and joy echoed throughout his soul. Had he finally stumbled upon the source energy he had been trying to find at the complex in Rayong? The source energy that was causing a rift in the space-time continuum on his home planet? As he wandered closer, lights shot out in every direction as Dave dropped to his knees and kissed the somtam-covered concrete in dramatic fashion as his mission was almost complete. Dave’s journey across the cosmos was almost at an end. He had finally found what he was looking for and was in one piece to sample the exotic delights of the interplanetary and interdimensionallly-famous Walking Street Pattaya!

Essential

Thai Festivals you must see in 2018 Thailand festivals are an intricate part of what makes the nation tick and how their colorful culture and ways penetrate every part of life in the kingdom. If you are a bit of a festival freak or a gala geek or even a carnival crazy, here are some essential Thai festivals that you simply do not want to miss in 2018!

#1 - Songkran Thai New Year (Water Festival) When: 13 April 2018. Thai New Year is 13th April, but the festival can last a week or more depending on the region. Where: Nationwide Songkran Thai New Year is the world’s biggest and most exciting water festival. When you absolutely have to drench every person on the street and smear them in talcum powder, accept no substitutes. Songkran is Thai New Year, which is routinely held on the 13th April and lasts 3-days in most areas. In Phuket, the water festival is just 24-hours, but in places such as Pattaya and Chiang Mai, it can take a week or more to unfold. The streets will be awash (excuse the pun) with water pistol-toting badasses who are trying to drench you completely, so make sure you are a hunter and not the hunted. Make sure you leave your valuables in your hotel safe or water from the pistols might not be the only kind leaking from your face.

#2 - Loy Krathong Festival Thailand When: 23 November 2018 Where: Nationwide Not to be confused with the Lantern Festival (Yi Peng), but running in conjunction with, Loy Krathong is one of the most fascinating and colorful spectacles of any Thai festival held throughout the year. The festival is routinely held on the Full Moon of the 12th month of the Lunar Calendar and usually falls in November on the Gregorian calendar. On the evening of the festival, all stretches of water in Thailand are filled to the brim with decorative floats, also called ‘Krathongs’, which are made from banana tree truck, banana leaves and lots of flowers. You can buy them or make them yourself. Casting the floats out across the water signifies casting away the stresses and troubles of the past lunar year, ready to start anew. It really is an enjoyable experience and you can take 22

part no matter where you are in Thailand because it’s a nationwide event.

#3 - Phuket Vegetarian Festival When: 18 October 2018 Where: Phuket Town One of the most covered Thailand events in media terms is the Phuket Vegetarian Festival. The festival has become infamous because of the strange acts of self-mutilation that goes on, which makes this one of goriest festivals in the world. Taking place in Phuket Town for a 10-day period in October 2018, the festival deals with the more darker side of the spirit and supernatural world. Popularized in men’s magazine such as FHM and Maxim, photos of the Phuket Vegetarian Festival usually center around Thai men sticking all manner of objects into their bodies such as metal poles, machine guns and even hooks, which takes place on the last couple of days of the event. Over the 10-day period, the streets are closed down in the evening and there are lots of vegetarian food stalls, music shows and all manner of carnival things taking place. If you are in Phuket in October 2018, we would strongly recommend you head over to Phuket Town with your camera in hand to enjoy the fun.

#4 – Chonburi Buffalo Racing Festival 2018 When: 23 October 2018 Where: Chonburi City I don’t know about you, but I have run away from a few buffaloes in my time, but have never actually ridden on one. The Chonburi Buffalo Racing Festival might seem like a fun and friendly Thailand event, and it is, but do not underestimate how serious the buffalo breeders and contestant take these races. The racing has been taking place for over 100 years and is a colorful spectacle that attracts lots of local spectators and also many Western onlookers form Bangkok and Pattaya. The races are fun, there are lots of food and drink stalls, live concerts and much more that make this a fascinating experience.

Ask Uncle Al Thailand Q&A

Am I a Thailand expert? Possibly I suppose, definitely maybe, and if you lived in a different country for 10 years, you would probably be as well. Here I am at your disposal… please feel free to ask me anything you want about Thailand, and I will answer it to the best of my knowledge, and if I can’t, I will just blag it in time honored tradition! My sack has been bursting this week (calm down folks) with lots of questions… and to answer a few: Yes I am handsome… no, it’s just a small one… and yes, I will take you on a whirlwind tour of Walking Street, if you’re paying of course. Thai Women vs. Western Women Dear Uncle Al, Is it right that Thai women make much better girlfriends than say, European, American and Australian women? Bob, from San Jose Hey Bob from San Jose, You get what you pay for in this world my friend! And all those people who say things like “I would never pay for a woman,” are, let’s face it, imbeciles! You always pay for it, no matter where you live. Mortgages, fine dining, fashion accessories, having kids, divorces… all these things are bloody expensive, and the longer and deeper the relationship goes, the less horizontal bed-dancing action you get in return. Joking aside, I prefer western women because you can always depend on them in a bar brawl. So, I think the answer to your question is that there is good and bad in all people, and really, it comes down to the chemistry, not where they come from, and there has been a few ladies in my life I would like to take the sulphuric acid to! Seeing as though we are in question answering mode, I have always wanted to ask this Bob, “Do you know the way to San Jose?” It’s all about the kids

Hi Al, I have just come back from a holiday in Thailand, and I would like to ask you why is that Thai children seem so well behaved when compared to Western kids? – Fiona, Queensland Well Fiona, it’s because in Thailand they still discipline their kids with the tried and tested iron fist method of dishing out lessons and retribution without the fear of receiving a visit from social services and their politically correct nonsense. It’s a very affective form of raising kids, some would say draconian, but I would call it ‘tough love’. Another factor in the Thai kid’s behavior is that they tend to snack on fresh fruit every day, whereas Western kids are forever feasting on saturated sweet stuff, which can lead to all manner of behavioral problems in children. Hey, but what do I know! Hello Al, I am thinking about coming to Thailand to live. What sort of jobs are on offer for westerners who have only done manual labor jobs in their own countries? Mike, Bradford, UK Hello Mike. I will break it to you gently, but the manual labor jobs in Thailand are safeguarded for Thai people, so you simply won’t be able to get a work permit for those kinds of jobs. You cannot get a work permit for laboring jobs, taxi driving and all those kind of things because they are for the Thais. Historically, lots of westerners get English teaching jobs, but I couldn’t imagine having to deal with other people’s kids on a daily basis, it’s bad enough with my own. Alternatively, you could do the same as me and pretend to be a writer because the people out here think you can do it if you can string a couple of sentences together in English without swearing, although I struggle with that sometimes. The only other choice is starting your own business. Many westerners open bars and restaurants, but generally speaking, their liver ends up harder that a 6ft 6inch football hooligan in a bad mood. But like they say “If you want to make a small fortune in Thailand, you have to bring a large fortune with you.” Right folks, that’s me for this week, so if you have any sensible question regarding ANYTHING Thai, please feel free to drop me a line to us “Pattaya City Uncovered” at info@ pattayacityuncovered.com pattaya city uncovered

Agogo

Bar Tour for Blokes

When it comes to hedonistic fun and holidays for blokes, Pattaya is literally Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory! With so many flavors, shades of color and tastes, and a few Umpa Lumpas thrown in for good measure, a night out in Pattaya visiting go-go bars is something out of this world. If you are looking for a night of hedonistic fun in Pattaya that is like no other, here is an itinerary of Agogo clubs you can visit.

7pm – Crystal Club Agogo – Soi LK Metro Although the consensus is that go-go bars are mostly found on Pattaya Beach Road and Walking Street, the Soi LK Metro area is also home to many go-go bars and is the perfect place to start this night of debauchery. The Crystal Club Agogo is located on Soi LK Metro and is known as the number-1 go-go bar in that area. Opening at 7pm, this is a great place to start the night and is home to lots of exquisite women and dancers who are very hands on with their hospitality.

9pm - Stars Club Pattaya After girding your loins in the Crystal Club, it is time to head over to Walking Street for the business end of the night. One of the most unique places on the ‘Street’ is the Stars Club Pattaya. Although the club might not quintessentially be a go-go bar, it has some immense exotic dancers and cabaret shows that will literally blow your socks off. The establishment opens at 9pm, and is a great place to come for

a couple of hours to take in the shows and conserve energy for the final two parts of the tours that you don’t want to miss.

11pm – Annabelle’s Agogo Bar Pattaya After relaxing and taking the shows at the Stars Club, it’s time to immerse yourself back into the action. Annabelle’s Agogo is considered as one of Pattaya’s most popular go-go bars and has a reputation that precedes itself. This club is known for its ‘hands on’ hostess girls and dancers that are always very welcoming and friendly. The club has a dark ambience that is conducive to hedonistic fun, and if you can read between the lines I am writing, you will know exactly what I am talking about.

1am – Windmill Agogo Club If the hedonistic delights of Annabelle’s wasn’t enough to capture your imagination or fulfill your needs, the famous Windmill Agogo has quite a reputation and takes the term ‘hands on fun’ to another level. You only have to do fiveminute’s research online to find out about the fun that can sometimes go on in the dark at Windmill… and it’s not for the faint hearted. I wouldn’t want to be the one to clean up afterwards. However, this is the perfect place to cap off a hedonistic night of fun playing the go-go bar carousel in Pattaya. If you can actually remember this night, you probably didn’t go at it full tilt like you were supposed to!

OneWeek in Pattaya Although I have lived in Pattaya for the past 5-years, there was a time when I would come here on holiday, sometimes for a few weeks and other times just for a week. Coming to Pattaya for a week is great fun, but one thing I found is if you want to make the most from a week in the city, you really need to plan your itinerary because if you don’t, the 7-days often results into a drunken blur where nothing was really achieved aside from a sore head and a spot of acute amnesia.

Getting to Pattaya Our time is limited, so we need to cut down on all the time consuming issues that arise from travelling. You have finally made it to Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok and need to get to Pattaya. Remember, time is against us. The balloon-surfing and cheap Charlie fraternity would at this point catch a bus to Ekamai Bus Station in Bangkok city and board a bus to Pattaya for just 150 THB. However, we are here to make the most of our week, so catching a taxi will already cut down your travelling time by a couple of hours. When you are waiting in the taxi queue, ask around to see if anybody else is going to Pattaya, especially if they are at the front of the queue. This will cut down your taxi fare by half.

Do you have a? Like I said earlier, it’s all about planning. Make sure you book your hotel room in advance, which will make things much simpler when you arrive. It’s not difficult to find a hotel in Pattaya on the run, but you don’t want to be trawling across the city with your bags in hand like some kind of vagabond or newbie waiting to be fleeced now do you? Make sure you book your hotel in advance to cut down on time.

Tackling your first night in the city It’s only natural that the moment you arrive that you want to get out into the neon-lit evening to hit the beers and party. You only have a week in the city, and jet-lag can be a real party-pooper. If you go mad on the first night, it might take 2 or 3 days to recover properly, so we would advise that first night

you take it easy. Have something nice and healthy to eat, a couple of beers and then go to bed at a semi-decent time around midnight, or it could have a severe impact on your week in the city. There will be plenty of time to hit the bars over the course of a week. Patience is a virtue my son.

Things to try when you are here: Now we have actually gotten to Pattaya in one piece and managed to survive our first night without any infractions with the tourist police or without being accosted by ladyboys, we can get on with our mission: to see and experience the best Pattaya has to offer in a single week. In the daytime you could sample the temples such as the Sanctuary of Truth in Naklua, do some shopping on the beach road markets, find some local handicrafts at Pattaya Floating Market or shop for brand names at Central Festival Shopping Mall. If you love the beach, we would recommend you go over to Jomtien Beach, which is nice and uncluttered stretch of sand. If you are an animal or theme park lover, Siracha Tiger Zoo, Million Year Stone Park and Crocodile Farm, Khao Kheow Open Zoo and Nong Nooch Gardens are great choices. Pattaya is home to some fantastic golf courses, with over 20 in a 45-minute drive of the city. If you are the more adventurous kind, you could sample go-karting, paintballing and even visit the local shooting range. There are many excursions out to and other outlaying islands that you could take advantage of during the day, all of which you can book at any tour kiosk in the city. In the evening, you need to check out the go-go and beer bars on Walking Street, dine in one of the city’s finest restaurants or even visit a show at Alangkarn Theater. There is so much to see and do in Pattaya, both day and night. But if you are here for just one week, you need to organize your time and plan beforehand the things you want to see and do. If you don’t plan your week in Pattaya, you will amble aimlessly throughout the city like I did in my first holiday in Pattaya, where I achieved absolutely nothing.

Q: What is a man’s idea of a balanced diet? A: A Budweiser in each hand! Q: What’s the difference between Amy Winehouse and Captain Morgan? A: Captain Morgan comes alive when you add coke! A young women goes to the hospital to have her baby. No husband or boyfriend is present. The woman has her baby and then the nurse comes in and says I must warn you your baby is black. The woman says “Well I was in desprate need for money and there was a porno and the guy was black.” The nurse quickly apologizes and says it was none of my business. The woman didnt seem to mind. The nurse says just so you know the baby has slanted eyes. The woman says “They told me for more money that there was a chinese guy too and she needed the money.” The nurse brings the woman her baby and the mother turns the baby over and slaps its bottom so hard it started to cry. The nurse yelled “What the hell are you doing?” The woman looks the nurse square in the eyes and says “I wanted to make sure it didnt bark too.” A man is in a bar and falling off his stool every couple of minutes. He is obviously drunk. So the bartender says to another man in the bar: “Why don’t you be a good Samaritan and take him home.” The man takes the drunk out the door and to his car and he stumbles at least ten times. They drive along and the drunk points out his house to the man. He stops the car and the drunk stumbles up the steps to his house with the man. The drunk’s wife greets them at the door: “Why thank you for bringing him home for me, but where’s his wheel chair?” Three guys were talking in the local bar. The manager was so sure that its bouncer was the strongest man around that it offered a standing $1,000 bet that no could beat him. The challenge was that the bouncer would squeeze a lemon until all the juice ran out into a beer glass, then hand the lemon to the customer. Anyone who could squeeze even one more

drop out of the lemon would win the money. Over the years many people had tried this, truck drivers, weightlifters, karate masters, and all had failed. Then one day this geeky little fella with heavy black rimmed glasses came into the bar and asked if he could try

“What do you do for a living that has given you such strength? Are you a construction worker, weightlifter, what?” “No” the man replied, “I work for the IRS.”

the challenge. After the laughter had subsided the landlord said that it was only fair that the man be given a chance at the bet, so he picked up a lemon and started squeezing. Once he was done he handed the remains to the little man who promptly squeezed out 4 more drops of juice onto the bar! Everyone looked on in amazement as the landlord handed over the prize and asked “What do you do for a living that has given you such strength? Are you a construction worker, weightlifter, what?” “No” the man replied, “I work for the IRS.”

This monkey walks into a bar and asks the bartender, “Do you have any bananas?” The bartender says no, and the monkey leaves. The next day, the monkey returns and asks, “Do you have any bananas?” The bartender again says no, and the monkey leaves. Two days later the monkey returns walks up to the bar and asks the bartender, “Do you have any bananas?” The bartender, losing his patience, screams at the monkey, “I told you monkey, I don’t have any bananas and if you ask me again I will nail your paws and tail to the floor!!” The monkey looked startled and leaves. Two days later the monkey returns walks up to the bar and asks the bartender, “Do you have any nails?” The bartender replied, “No,” and the monkey said, “Good! Got any bananas?”
