BEACH ROAD PATTAYA

When it comes to looking for companionship, Beach Rd is the favourite of those who don’t like the big crowds and loud music of Walking Street, those on a budget, and those who just want a bit of fresh air and leisurely stroll as they chat with a friend or two while looking at all the pretty faces along the way.

THE COCONUT BAR

The Beach Rd pathway commonly known as the ‘coconut bar’ stretches nearly the entire length of beach rd and is lined with 100’s to 1000’s of Thai women and Ladyboys available for conversation. The coconut bar is a haven for elderly expats and tourist who just want to sit in the cool of the afternoon or evening and maybe talk and share some time with a middle aged Thai lady or a friend.

HUNTING ON BEACH RD

With the highest numbers of companions available between the hours of 8 pm and 2 am, the walkway is full of those who just want to go window shopping or those hunting for a diamond in the rough,  Also Beach Rd is a major travel route for all the bar girls who have finished their shifts at the bars they work at on Soi’s 6, 7 and 8 and are making their way to Walking street for a bit of overtime.

BEACH ROAD GETS CRAZY

Beach Road is where Pattaya airs her Dirty laundry, and lets it all hang out for the world to see,  I have seen more crazy stuff go down here than anywhere else in Pattaya combined.  From the amusing to the shocking, if you start to spend your time in this area, it is only a matter of when before you will witness something that will get everyone’s attention.  Best to stay uninvolved in most cases.

 BEACH RD ACTIVITIES

The foot path between the ocean and Beach Rd is a hive of activity around the clock in Pattaya that seems to work in shifts.

In the morning you have the early risers who want to get out and spend the early day paragliding around Pattaya bay for their early morning adrenaline rush.

 

PARAGLIDING

Paragliding in Pattaya can be done right off the beach or you can head out into Pattaya Bay and do it from one of the several large pontoons that are floating a couple hundred meters from shore that are especially designed for this activity and are very popular.

SUN-BURNED RUSSIAN’S

Mid morning to mid afternoon you have the sun worshippers, usually Russians who just love to stay out in the sun until they are cooked raw, radiating a bright red countenance that allows them to glow in the dark during the evening hours.

LADYBOYS

The late Shift starts about 5 pm, when Thai ladies and Ladyboys start to arrive on mass and stake out their favourite spot along the beach.  This lasts until the day light hours of the next day or until the police scare them away sometime during the night on one of their many patrols.

 

SHOPPING ON BEACH ROAD

Also the other side of Beach road is a long procession of hotels, markets, shopping malls, restaurants and convenience stores, and as you walk you will eventually pass some of the famous bar areas where you can stop for a rest and a cold drink if you want.

 

BEACH MARKET STALLS

Beach Road is often utilized for public events and parties maybe every 6-8 weeks or so, a tent city springs up along the road in just a couple of hours and a day or two before the big event, usually held over a long weekend, it is a bargain hunters paradise.

GRAB A BARGAIN

Taking advantage of beach markets a great chance to get some really cheap clothes and souviners, not to mention a great opportunity to try some of the best and freshest Thai Street food available.  You also get a large influx of people coming down from Bangkok for a break from the city and is a good opportunity to meet some lovely Thai ladies from Bangkok who just want to have some fun with a foreigner.

NOW YOU SEE IT – NOW YOU DON’T

The only thing quicker than a beach rd market appearing is seeing it disappear. when its all over and time to go home, the Thai’s pack up and go as quickly as they can, the stalls are dismantled by large crews and the beach is systematically cleared of stalls in just a few hours, ready for the next event.
