WATCH WHERE YOUR GOING

There’s no escaping the fact that at some point you are going to be walking around Pattaya and good supportive and comfortable shoes are a must, Not only to keep your feet happy, but because the Streets of Pattaya are a virtual obstacle course of uneven surfaces, holes in the footpaths and loose bricks and pavers.

AVOIDABLE INJURIES

The amount of people I have seen fall over because they are not looking at where they are walking and have tripped over a object or twisted an ankle on an uneven surface is amazing, you can avoid injuries, when walking the Soi’s and Rd’s, if you watch where you walk.

A RASH FROM DIRTY WATER

Also the streets, of Pattaya are pretty dirty and there are lots of small pools of stagnant water around, and being a topical climate, where, it is possible to pick up a fungus of some kind that will give you a nasty rash and an unwanted souvenir from your holiday in Thailand. Wear shoes and socks.

WALKING AROUND PATTAYA CAN BE FUN

Ok, with that out of the way, walking around Pattaya can be a fun and exciting experience. Because Pattaya is such a compact city, you are right in the thick of the action right after walking out the hotel doors, you can pretty well walk to any point on the map in an hour or so depending on your starting location.

YOU SEE MORE WHEN YOU WALK

Walking is a great way to get some exercise and because you are moving slower, you will see a lot more of the details of the area around you than you would by faster means of transport, you can stop and look at everything at your leisure and own pace and get a better understanding of the services available to you that are close by.

THE STREETS HAVE NO FOOTPATHS

Be warned though, you are in Thailand now and not in your own country, a lot of streets don’t have foot paths and you may have to walk on the road with motor bikes and cars zooming past at high speeds, be very careful and look both ways for safety.

ROAD RULES DON’T MATTER HERE

Also a lot of the rules for pedestrians are ignored here, so if you’re at a zebra crossing, don’t automatically think you have the right of way and just walk out across the street, that is a good way to get run over, Just wait for a break in the traffic and proceed carefully.

 

CONCLUSION

WALKING AROUND PATTAYA IS A VERY DANGEROUS ACTIVITY AND EXTREME CARE AND CAUTION SHOULD BE EXERCISED FOR YOUR OWN BENEFIT – PLEASE TAKE CARE.
