Day 1 of Family Friendly Trip to Pattaya

Pattaya has been getting a lot of bad press recently by the international media. The Daily Mirror tabloid proclaimed that Pattaya is the sex capital of the world. They also claimed that there are 27,000 prostitutes here. I am not sure how they came to that number. Did they go around counting them? I am not going to stand here and say that there are no prostitutes in Pattaya. I will leave that to Thailand’s junta leader. However, I do want to say that Pattaya is not just about bar girls and nightlife. It can be family friendly if you know where to go. So, I set myself a challenge to find the other side of Pattaya. I am doing this with the help of my Twitter followers and Facebook friends. With their help I put together this google map of family friendly places. I am now visiting some of the highlights over the next three days.

    I have lived in Pattaya for over 20 Years & Enjoy it here,
    Pattaya Walking Street or any other Soi is no different from Kings Cross in Sydney or Soho down London Town if you want to Party & Play,

    There are many other attactractions other than the seedy part of the Village,

    Live & Let Live

    Pattaya is a dump. Have you walked along the beach after dark? It is swarming with rats. They are everywhere. It’s also full of criminals from all parts of the world, including Thailand. Family friendly? You must be joking.
