Okay, I think I made my thought processes about Pattaya clear, but a family trip with zany parents, three sisters who obviously never wanna grow up, and of course, Leon, anything and everything's always perfect. Pattaya seems like a long time ago now, and honestly, the memory that really pops out to me is the body-wrecking food poisoning I felt.
Honestly though, Pattaya was a treat. My favourite has to be Wat Phra Khao Yai. Amazing place. So zen, with a big, gold buddha at the end of the serpentine steps. Nong Nooch Tropical Gardens was great as well. Actually, for first-timers, I suggest Jomtien Beach instead of the Pattaya Beach.
I didn't go there, but, it got significantly cleaner and prettier the farther away we were from Pattaya Beach. Oh and we ended this very long day back in Bangkok, pain like you couldn't imagine, healed by a quick dip in the pool at our amazing third hotel, and then a final, stressful shopping session at Chatuchak Market. Damn, I felt so stressed during this trip.
Anyways, nothing much to report. Enjoy the last travel photos, and I can't wait for my next adventure! - Che
