I call it Pattaya Beach 'Dawn Freak Show!'
If you’ve even been to Thailand, specifically Pattaya Beach, you will already know there’s an unlimited variety of sights and sounds to experience there. If you enjoy just relaxing and doing some serious ‘people watching’, then without a doubt, this is place for you! Let me tell you now, if you can imagine it, you can find it here.
Once I was on a submarine cable laying job in Thailand. Our company was laying a sub sea [that’s underwater.. for you folks that really need basics] fiber optics cable that was to link up most of Southeast Asian countries with USA and Europe. Well, it was a hell of a job cause they had me put up in a fairly nice hotel right there on main strip in Pattaya Beach. Hell of a job and hell of an assignment. LOL. Heck.. my employer didn’t know it at time but even if they would have cut my pay to HALF of what my current day rate was – I wouldn’t have left that job for anything.
If any of you readers out there that have had pleasure to visit Pattaya beach you will fully understand where I’m coming from here. For those of you who have never been to Pattaya beach.. well.. all I can say is there’s no shortage of beautiful almond eyed ladies and bars there! I don’t even think it’s possible to count all bars there.. every type imaginable that also comes with every type of lady imaginable also.
It’s just to hard for me to explain what exactly what Pattaya beach is all about but one thing is for sure – a single male can have a hell-of-a-good time there! There’s no denying that at all. If you’re an able bodied male.. and you can’t get a girl at Pattaya beach.. god have mercy on your soul. That’s about all I can say for your sorry ass. LOL
Back to my main topic now.. so.. on this sub sea cable laying job, sometimes I had to catch a boat out to barge [which was anchored about a few miles offshore there in Pattaya bay]. On those mornings I would have to go down to little bar on main strip and wait for boat to come fetch me. This bar is called Marine Bar and it’s located right on main strip. Yup.. Marine Bar was named after good-ole US Marines! cause during Vietnam war era days they used to all go to Pattaya beach for some good ole R&R [Rest & Recreation].
I would arrive at Marine Bar about 5:30 am and wait for my pick-up boat while watching sun rise. I’ve always had a favorite pass time of people watching.. and let me tell you.. I had no ideal that people watching at sunrise on Pattaya Beach could bring an entire new meaning to word! This brought me to an entirely different level! Incredible… I noticed several different types of people there and I classified them into several different crazy groups. Such as…
The All-Nighter’s (aka: Vampire Guys)
These guys are very easy to spot cause they usually are most loud and noticeable of groups. These guys are one’s who have been up partying all night long and are still going strong at it… maybe it’s because of drugs they took earlier that night.. who knows how they can do it. Oh.. they’re good at partying and they do it every night to maximum. They sleep only around 10 or 11am and then wake up again around 6 or 7pm to do it all over again!
Most of these guys are here in Pattaya on a short vacation and they’re here for one reason and one reason only – to PARTY.. and I mean, PARTY HARD! They’ve been working all year for this short 2 week vacation and they fully intend on packing in at least a years worth of missed partying during their stay here. They only go back to their hotel and pass out when their body is begging for mercy and to get their batteries recharged for a few hours. As soon as they wake up, it’s, “What f**k are we doing sleeping.. LET’S GO PARTY AGAIN!!”
