Welcome to Pattaya. If you are here on holiday, we are sure you are having a fantastic time in this exciting and vibrant city. If you are an expat and already live, here, it’s nice to see you again. Although this is routinely one of the quietest times of the year in a tourism sense, there is always something happening in this bombastic city. Buckle up your seatbelts and get ready for blast-off. One of the most exciting things to happen to the city’s nightlife in the past couple of months is the launch of Pattaya’s newest and most fascinating disco, the MIAMI CLUB. This amazing new nightclub in Walking Street is changing the way we party in the city. Bringing that special Sunshine State vibe with an injection of Thai makes this club one of the must-visit places in the city. With a cool choice of mixologists and gravity-defying flair bartenders, you really have to get down to MIAMI this month to find out what all the fuss is about! Not everyone enjoys the thumping base of a discotheque. Sometimes we look for something a little more peaceful such as a few games of pool at the Legends Pool Hall or Bootleggers, or to catch some live sport at places such as Punch & Judy and I-Rovers. Whether you are looking for quality restaurants, the best tourism attractions for family fun, or simply seek more information about all the things you can see or do when you are here, Pattaya City Uncovered magazine has our fingers on the pulse of the happenings in the city.

Please take your time to read through the pages of this magazine because we definitely have something for everyone. All our recommendations are the best in the city. We hope you have a great time on holiday in Pattaya and we look forward to seeing you again in the near future. Nobody comes to Thailand just once! All the best, The Editor

EXCITING TIMES @

THE LOFT SPORTS PUB & GRILL

I

t’s an exciting time to be a part of The Loft brand. On the back of the success of The Loft Sports Pub Bar & Grill at Lake Mabprachan, they have recently launched their brand new The Loft Resort. Both establishments offer a great choice of international style-cuisine around Lake Mabprachan. If you live in East Pattaya or want to get away from Beach Road for a couple of hours, visiting one of The Loft establishments is a great way to find something different. The Loft Sports Pub & Grill Over the past 9 months, the reputation of The Loft Sports Pub & Grill has massively grown. Located directly on Lake Mabprachan, offering lake views and relaxing environment, The Loft is the best place around the Lake to enjoy a true sports pub atmosphere with a great selection of Western-style food, all in a modern air-conditioned space. If you are looking for somewhere to catch all the latest sporting events from across the globe, such as boxing and UFC, tennis, golf, rugby, football (when the season starts again) and many more, The Loft has several flat-screen TVs strategically positioned throughout the premises showcasing live sports in full English-speaking commentary.

A

One of the best kept secrets in the city, the Momento Beach Resort is tucked away in private grounds just off Soi 8 of Thepprasit Road in between Jomtien and Pattaya and is a great little oasis to get away from city life for a few hours.

Taking it to the Limits:

Rolls-Royce Phantom EWB Testosterone, alcohol, beautiful women and badass motor vehicles are the cornerstones of being a man’s man. And I don’t mean a man’s man like Brokeback Mountain either! Is there anything more adrenalin-filled than taking a flashy sports car to its limits to test the Laws of Physics, time and space? We don’t think so, and that’s all that matters in this magazine. Lamborghini is a name that conjures up images of super-power-filled sports cars and unquestionable elegance and panache. One of the brand’s newest models, the Lamborghini Aventador, is a real piece of kit and a car fanatic’s wet dream. If you wanted to buy such a vehicle in Thailand, you could expect to pay in the region of 36.5m THB baby! But that doesn’t stop us talking or fantasizing about this majestic beast. Engineered to revolutionize performance, the Lamborghini

Aventador is on some next-level biznizz and is setting the benchmark in the super sports car sector and beyond! This car (and I use that term lightly) is seen as a legend in the making, coming with a 6.5L V12 DOHC engine, a 90 liter fuel tank and power that hits 700ps at 8,250 rpm. In other words… it’s an absolute beast. This true super car might not have the agility to circumnavigate the mountainous coastal roads of Koh Chang with ease, but on the straight and narrow it will blow almost everything away. Sleek, comfortable, earth-shatteringly rapid and undoubtedly stylish and innovative, when you want to impress your friends, their friends, and even their friends, while at the same time blasting through police roadblocks at the speed of light, accept no substitutes!

Check out the specifications of the Rolls-Royce Phantom EWB below: Price Range: Thai Baht 42,500,000 Fuel Economy: 4.35 km/l city / 9.8 km/l highway Transmission: Automatic Seats: 5 Drivetrains: Rear wheel drive Rolls-Royce Phantom EWB Overview Engine: 6.8L V12 DOHC 28 valve Twin Turbo Fuel Tank: 100 Liters Power: 460 ps @ 5,350 rpm Fuel Supply System: Direct injection Exterior colors: n/a

AND WONDERFUL GUINNESS BOOK OF RECORDS IN THAILAND

Most expensive pet wedding Do you ever remember watching Paris Hilton carry around that little dog in her pocket and thought she was taking pet-love to new levels of embarrassment? What an idiot, right! She has now been forgiven because she was really just playing at the game and does not deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as this sycophantic pet worshipper. Thailand holds the record for the most expensive pet wedding in the world, and this was way back in 1996 and still hasn’t been surpassed today, largely due to the fact you don’t find many pet lovers with this kind of stupidity in the world. Phet and Phoy were two cats, but not just normal cats. They had a type of glaucoma that gave their eyes a diamond appearance, which is considered lucky in Thailand. Their owners lavished a wedding ceremony to wed the cats that came to an earth-shattering 400,000 THB with over 500 guests. 15 million baht’s worth of presents were given to the cats, alongside a dowry that tipped the scales at 550,000 THB. The bride was brought a Rolls Royce and the groom a helicopter. If that wasn’t already mind-bending enough, a parrot was best man and an iguana was maid of honor. That’s pure pet decadence right there. The World’s tallest girl Aren’t those Thais small and petite little creatures? That’s the impression we have anyway. However, in the most stunning sense of irony, at one time in the not-too-distant past, the tallest woman in the world was from Thailand. 17-year-old Malee Duangdee was the tallest girl in the world, scaling in at an impressive 6  ft 10  inches, which would even make The Undertaker think twice. A few short years later, Malee was upstaged

by a 16-year-old from America, named Marvadenne Anderson, who is now the tallest at 6  ft 11 inches. Most Veterinary Surgeons in a Single Operation How many Thai vets does it take to fix an elephant? I suppose the answer relies on what is broken on the elephant in the first place. Well, the answer is 30 vets. Once upon a time, a lovely elephant named Motola was taking her morning graze in the jungles of Lampang when she stepped on a land mine and blew part of her leg off. 30 vets worked in tandem to operate on the 38-yearold Motola in the Hang Chat Elephant Hospital in August 1999. God knows why you would need 30 vets for one operation, but I am no expert on such matters. Incidentally, Motola was given enough anesthetic to knock out 70 people. Motola was fitted with an artificial leg and went on to survive the accident and operation. Too many cooks spoil the broth? Maybe not!

There are so many questions that need answering, and this is why you need friendly and knowledgeable people by your side to give you the best advice to ensure you make the right decisions from the start.

Manly Things

I

TO DO in Pattaya

t’s a strange time to be a man, what with the politically correct agenda we see across the western world that constantly wants to turn men into emasculated chumps. There is nothing wrong with being a manly man. Drinking gasoline and chewing on tobacco is our birthright. Fortunately, places like Pattaya still exist in the world, where a man can fulfil his potential and become the badass your mum always warned you about. Here are 6 manly things to do in Pattaya to prove your badassery. Riding on the back of a Drunken Motorbike Taxi Nothing says ‘fearless’ more than getting on the back of a drunken motorbike taxi and partaking in a high-octane adventure that would make Evil Knievel look like a three-year-old riding a bike with stabilizers. Hang on for dear life as you career through the streets of Pattaya dodging potholes and Soi Dogs at breakneck speeds to get your danger stripes.

Get a Shave at a Thai Barbers Having a shave seems like a normal thing that a man encounters, sometimes on a daily basis if your facial hair grows as quick as mine. Getting a shave at a Thai salon is a cutthroat business… literally. If you can survive the Sweeny Tod treatment of a cutthroat razor in Pattaya, then you will have a face smoother than a baby’s backside. The razor is so sharp it could shave a spider’s armpit. Visit a Go-Go Bar Men like missions. It’s why we make good soldiers. One of the most manly things to do in Pattaya is to visit a go-go bar. Although the price of beer can be astronomical, you are paying for the view, and we don’t mean a landscape countryside view either. Get up close and personal with the predatory ladies that work in the go-go and make sure you wear thin trousers or shorts… you will thank me for that advice later. Let the hands-on manliness begin.


Eating Fried Insects If you want to impress friends and onlookers with your manliness, make sure you visit a Pattaya food street vendor to dine on creepy crawlies. At one time in the distant past, food was scarce in Thailand, so over the years they have developed the taste for almost anything… even 75-year-old Speedowearing Germans. Smash some silkworms and cockroaches down your pie-hole without any hesitation and claim they taste like readysalted peanuts. It will make you look like a real boss. Getting Smashed on Lao Khao You’re a man, a geezer, a bloke, and a badass. Of course, you are a master of downing alcoholic beverages and still living to tell the tale… that’s why you are loved far and wide. You have never had a real drinking session until you have downed the super-strength local alcoholic beverage (I use that term lightly) called Lao Khao. This potent Thai whiskey is concocted from rice and distilled sahtoh and is truly an ‘end of days’ tipple with the kick of a mule and the destructive impact of a meteorite.

manhood. If you want to gain Kudos for your manliness in Thailand and pass the test, try and eat a hot and spicy Som Tam Papaya Salad without struggling or breaking a sweat and then we will see how much of a man you really are. Pattaya City Uncovered will take absolutely no responsibility for the problems arising from you trying to prove your manliness. It’s a fine line between courage and stupidity. We are in no way to blame for your jugular being sliced in a Thai salon, and definitely have nothing to do with any medical bills arising from crashing on the back of a Thai motorbike taxi or from an allergic reaction from downing copious amounts of Lao Khao. A part of being a manly man is facing your problems head-on by yourself 

Eat Som Tam without breaking a Sweat Back in the UK, the litmus test for manhood is how well you can handle ten-pints of cheap larger and a red hot Indian curry. In the rainforests of the Amazon, young men go through a cacophony of initiation ceremonies that revolve around psychedelic experiences that usher them towards PattayaCityUncovered.com
