One town which is so vibrant, so lively and close to Bangkok city is none other than PATTAYA !!
Only just a nap could bring you from Bangkok to Pattaya. It is the nap that could give you an experience to tell anybody you have ever been to Pattaya.
We checked in one of the hotels on beach road (Soi 7 - Sunbeam hotel). But you will get many hotels here according to your budget.
Nong Nooch Tropical gardens
Pattaya Elephant village
The Million year stone park and crocodile farm.
Ripley's believe it or not
Its just amazing to see city which has been developed solely for tourist and new attractions added every year for the tourist to have interest in revisiting Pattaya.
We also planned to go to Cambodia - Siam reap, for visit to Angkor Vat - Lost Mecca for Hindus , only temple of lord Vishnu outside India, built more than a century ago. The magnificence and grandeur of the place is indescribable. One of UNESCO heritage site in the world and 8hour drive from Pattaya.Time constraint and border disputes between Thailand and Cambodia stopped us but surely not for ever.One day, I plan to visit this last bastion of God Vishnu before it disappears in oblivion.
Off to Bangkok to write another experience .... keep reading
