Muay Thai Kickboxing in Pattaya
Pattaya attracts thousands of pleasure-seeking tourists from all over the world. It has become a truly cosmopolitan meeting spot, where travelers alongside the vibrant expat community face each other amidst the smiling faces of Thai folks. It isn't just a place to look around, but the vacation spot where nations meet, communicate, interact and befriend during the holiday. And for some, Pattaya provides the opportunity to flare out and to show off, flamboyantly exposing on beaches, while walking, driving or at clubs, bars and discos. Such a variety of these free playboy shows, not once one would wonder: What an odd place... is that really happening on planet Earth?
It is almost impossible to describe the place to someone who has never been here and witnessed the scene by your own eyes. With truth and logic the early casualties, the reality is that here, single foreign men are no longer the predator but the quarry, no longer the hunter but the hunted.
Still, this unique and enticing vacation spot retains numerous retreats allowing one to withdraw from the cacophony, to seclude yourself in the gorgeous natural scenery anytime you feel like. More than 30 offshore islands stretched within a radius of some 30 miles around Pattaya.
Not Just A Snooker Club
Every year this exotic beach resort welcomes roughly five million visitors and so far, Thais fully recognize the importance of tourism. The friendly and hospitable nature of Thai folks boosts its promotion, frequently bringing back the old and constantly rising up the number of newcomers.
South Pattaya by Night
Regardless of its intense and flamboyant life, Pattaya is a reasonably safe place by any standards. Altogether, Police patrols and Tourist Police jointly with the security guards are on 24 hour-a-day alert protecting the tourists, along with the local residents serving the guests. Hence, even a lady alone is completely safe strolling around day-and-night. If you don't want, no one will touch you. Incidents if any, for the most part are between tourists themselves, amongst machos of US Navy, Russians and 'Russian Mafia', and so forth.
In outward, Pattaya might have the appearance of being Western, but it is not. Pattaya combines a mixture of cultures, both East and West, Thai and non-Thai. It would be wrong to judge the place just by its physical appearance, and even a greater mistake to judge Thai people based on what one see and hear during a short holiday in the resort.
