Pattaya IT Center


he Tuk Com Pattaya is a mall located in South Pattaya where IT and electronics equipment and products are majorly sold. Variety of products such as laptops, computer desktops, scanners, cameras, printers, mobile phones, electronics, software, and so on, can be found there. You will find different IT and electronic shops there, which give s you the ability to compare prices of what you want before making payment. The Tuk Com Pattaya has a car park facility for clients who come around for shopping. In the Tuk Com Pattaya, customers can choose their preferred IT or electronic equipment and let the shop staff package them for you. This means you can decide to choose any brand you want and can mix the various amazing feature from different brands. If you have issues with any equipment bought, all you need to do is to return it to the shop you bought it, and they will return it back to the manufacturer. You can also seek the help of the vendor if you have little knowledge of IT or electronic hardware. The underground level of the Tuk Com Pattaya doesn’t experience a lot of traffic because not everyone knows about it. Most people do not have the knowledge of the floor below the ground floor because it isn’t well marked and the staircase seems like a dead end. You can find foodstuffs and groceries in this floor as well as a food court that is pretty decent. You can also find selection of clothes for sale in that floor. The fact that the Tuk Com is located on the South Pattaya Road makes it easier to get a Song Thaew or a motorcycle taxi. If you have a private car, you can park your car in the mall’s facility made available for customers. Although, there is a parking facility available at the mall, but it is located 250 meters far from the building. This is can be viewed as a disadvantage to the mall, but since the city is not big, getting a car park facility closer to the tuk com Pattaya seems difficult. Opening Hours: Monday – Friday: 10:30AM – 9:00PM Saturday – Sunday: 10:00AM – 9:00PM Location: Corner of South Pattaya Road and SoiBuakhao Address: 8 Moo 10 10 Road, South Pattaya, Banglamung, Chonburi 20150, Thailand If you need to purchase any time of electronics, smartphone, sim card, personal computers, or any type of IT product you want, just go to the Tuk com Pattaya and you will find anything you want.


Will Thailand Legalize

Cannabis for Medicinal Use?


or thousands of years, cannabis was used for virtually every aspect of civilization’s daily lives. The first sails on boats were created from hemp. Oils, clothes, paper, medicine and much more can be derived from this interesting plant that has a checkered modern history. As it is becoming clear that marijuana is a very beneficial herb that can be used for many positive things, there are rumblings that the Thai government are considering legalizing cannabis. For many thousands of years, cannabis was legal across the world, and only for a very blip of time in modern history as the plant been illegal. Ever since the Thai Justice Minister Paiboon Koomchaya said in 2016 that the war on drugs in Thailand had been lost, Thailand has been seemingly on a quiet path towards the legalization of cannabis. Just a few months ago, the law was changed to allow farmers to grow hemp, for cultivation but not for sale. Other herbal stimulants such as Kratom could also become legal in the near future. But will this really come to fruition, or is it just wishful thinking? Medical Marijuana It only makes sense that cannabis should be used for it vast healing and medicinal properties. If derivatives of heroin are used for pain killers in hospitals and nobody bats an eyelid, cannabis should be accorded the same attitude. In terms of skin cancer and other forms of cancer and also for dealing with Multiple Sclerosis and fits, cannabis can greatly help an individual. The herb could also be vital when dealing with patients who already have cancer and need to build up an appetite. There are many uses in the modern medical world for cannabis, and hopefully Thailand can make the right move for it’s people in the coming months. Making Billions from the Cannabis Industry In 2016 alone, Colorado state made USD $200 million from the sale of cannabis, which was then used to improve the local areas and society in general. Colorado is now seen as one of the richest states in America, largely thanks to the legalization of Cannabis. Other states such as Washington, Oregon and Las Vegas are currently amidst legalization, while Marijuana has been legal for medicinal use in California for quite a while now. The world is changing, and just imagine how much money places such as Pattaya could make from a cannabis boom? Legalizing cannabis in Thailand would not just generate billions of baht for local businesses, but the income could also be used to improve schooling and living conditions for locals. It really is a win-win loophole. Let’s keep out finger crossed that the Thai government reclaims its right to use cannabis like it did for thousands of years before the US and CIA-led War on Drugs demonized this very beneficial herb.

How much should I budget per day for a

Holiday in Pattaya?

It depends a lot on what type of traveler you are and how much travelling/ partying you plan to do. So the following will give you an idea on what you are going to need to prepare for and how much you may need.



With a couple of exceptions should be able to get a basic fan-cooled room for under 300 baht. If you want air-con then you’re looking to spend somewhere in the 500-1,000B range. Facilities like swimming pools, business center’s and location will again push the price upwards. Take a look through the various accommodation sections on Travel fish to get an idea of what standard of accommodation works for you.

Thailand is hot and you’ll need to be drinking a lot of water. At least two to three liters of water a day — that will cost around 40-60B a day. The cheaper restaurants like noodle stands will give you water for free but the nicer the restaurant, the more it will cost you.

Food If you’re eating on the street, three meals a day, then 100-150B per day is adequate. If you’re eating three staple meals in a backpacker style restaurant, you’ll be spending more like 250-400B a day. If you’re eating dinner at proper restaurants, then you could easily be spending 300B or more a meal. Example the price of subway is approx. 200B.

Alcohol Booze is generally much cheaper compared to what you’d pay back home. A large bottle of beer can cost around 50B (and you get what you pay for), a bottle of cheap gin or vodka around 600B. If you’ve having a couple of big beers every night with dinner, this will add up quickly. Note in clubs and Walking Street this can be much higher. Stick to the Go Go’s and order drought beer if you’re looking to get more bang for your baht.

Transport Buses, trains and low cost flights are all very affordable. There is no real guideline in this regard as it depends entirely on how far and frequently you are travelling. Generally around town you can jump on a baht bus for 10B. Motor bike taxis vary and will take you most places around the city under 100B.



Hope this helps. This may not be entirely accurate as prices do vary. Good Luck!

Nakula Fish Market: Fresh Seafood, Veggies, and Sumptuous Dishes


akula or Naklua among native Thais refers to the most preferred fresh seafood market in Northern Pattaya. “Na Klua” originally meant “salt farm” and derived its moniker from the famous salt farming villages of Thailand. The place is actually the smallest and least known sub-district in the city of Pattaya. The principal attractions are its tranquil and pristine beaches. Nakula is well-known among many Europeans especially Germans. Fish Direct from Fishing Boats Tourists have to be at Nakula before five in the morning. The term, fresh means seafood like fish, oysters, prawns, shrimps, lobsters, crabs, and shellfish come from the boats and brought directly into the wet market where you can buy them at very low prices. Large prawns sell for 200 Baht or just a little over $6 per kilo. Would you believe that fresh fish cost even cheaper? Some vendors even cook it right before your eyes. Or, the locals will gladly clean the fish so you can bring it back to the resort in a plastic bag filled with ice. The seafood goes well with Thai local beer, Chang or chilled white wine. Nakula opens daily from 5am until 9pm. How to get to Nakula The fish market is only 10 minutes away from Pattaya Beach Road. You can take the colorful taxi or Tuk-Tuk “Sam Lor” three-wheeled trike. For visitors who opt to rent a car, parking is available for a measly 10 Baht or about three cents. You do not have to pay any admission fee. In case you are 22

coming from the city central, it is more practical to take the Baht Bus with the travel taking between 20 and 30 minutes depending on the traffic. If you go around the place, you will not see any shopping malls and bars but a small and oddlooking seaside village that offers a glimpse of simple Thai way of life. Stroll around the waterfront and you can watch the fishing vessels going back and forth on the clean waters. It is a paradise for seafood lovers. The huge marketplace practically contains all varieties of edible fish and shellfish as well as vegetables and fruits. Prices are extremely low and around one-half the amount you will pay in any supermarket in Bangkok. Popular with Local Residents Here’s a piece of advice for foreign tourists. If you plan to understand more about the culture of the people in Nakula, look for a trustworthy local guide who can speak a bit of English. Majority of residents have expert knowledge about the fishing industry. Hand gestures and finger pointing cab be enough to communicate with them at affordable prices. The market opened in December of 2012. The Nakula open market is situated along Sukhumvit Road around 400 meters north of the junction adjacent to the intersection of Pattaya Nua Road. The place is a busy area that thrives seven days each week. The prices are certainly lower than the markets near Central Pattaya.

The Sacred Fig Trees

of Thailand


hen you are on your way back to your hotel or house in Thailand and see a tree that has remained intact in the middle of a tarmac road, didn’t that seem odd to you? There are many instances when you will see a tree that has been not only un-plucked, but also has an entire road built around it without even a single leaf getting damaged. If so, you have come into contact with the fig tree, which is a wildly protected and sacred species in Thailand. In Pattaya itself, you can see the prefect example of the sacred nature of the fig tree across from the Naklua Fish market. The tree is adorned with ribbons and is located right in the middle of a road. The locals pip their horns when they drive by as a mark of respect and in search of good luck. Characterizing a Fig Tree Before we go into detail in regards to why the fig tree is so revered in Thailand, let’s take a moment to catalogue the characteristics of a fig tree. Did you know that the fig tree’s botanical name is ‘FicusReligiosa’ and is synonymous with Hinduism, Budish and Judaism? This plant is a revered symbol in many religious throughout SE-Asia. The tree can grow up to 30-feet in height and has a distinctive canopy that is heart-shaped and 8 to 12cm across. Why is the fig tree important to Thai people? There are many reason why the fig tree is so sacred to Thai people, but the main reason harks back to the time of Buddha. It is believed that Lord Buddha sat under a fig tree when he gained enlightenment. He is supposed to have said to “worship the tree, is same as worshipping me.” Those in Thailand with Animist beliefs also think that the fig tree is so sacred that it is inhabited by lost souls and spirits. Hindis believe that Lord Vishnu was born under a fig tree. If you dare to cut down a fig tree in Thailand, the locals believe that you could invoke the wrath and revenge of the resident spirits. If indeed you need to cut down a fig tree, the spirits must be warned and consolidated by monks and other religious figures before you can do so, or you will carry much bad luck with you. Next time you are drunkenly weaving through Pattaya on foot or on motorbike, make sure you do not crash into or urinate on a fig tree, or who knows what perils lie in wake for you.
