Beautiful Sunday and Sublime Sunday - Time Out With Friends !!

in beautifsunday •  last month

For the past week i have not been so active on steemit due to my stepson visiting me in Bangkok for his 30th birthday so i had arranged to take time of work and spent some time with my stepson and his friends none of them had been to Thailand before so it was a pleasure to be with them and show them around.

We had decided we would go to Pattaya city which is about 2 hours south of Bangkok it's a very lively city with lots of little islands close by so we booked at the Base Apartment 42 levels high and these were the views from our rooms and the rooftop.

After settling in to our 5 star apartment early Sunday morning we had decided we would go to one of the white sandy beaches most of these little islands are about all one hour away on the slow ferry boat but we decided to take the speed boat which only takes half the time.

The speed boat is the way to go if you are in a group the cost is $10 per person more private and more fun and they will take you to any island you like in less then half hour you are there and they will come back and pick you up all included in that price.

There are actually a few more little island around the Pattaya area with all white sandy and crystal clear waters but we decided to go to Kon Larn only because i had been there before and knew that it would be suited for all of us.

If you decided you wanted to stay longer on this island there are hotels and bungalows at several beaches at very reasonable rates from $20 to $60 US depending on the size of rooms you wanted. The sunsets and sunrise are absolutely breathtaking on this island.

Ohh yes finding a hotel in NYC under $200 is almost impossible, and even in other cities here is not much better,

I know exactly what you mean it's the same back home in Australia :)

I've never been to Pattaya. The view from up there looks great but I guess the trip must be completed with a walk by the beach.
