yes agree with comments regarding this street and it applies to the whole of Pattaya. One thing to mention though is the incredible stench of this seedy town. An obnoxious smell from open sewers permeates the air. My whole family got sore tummies there because of the foul air quality.
In terms of asian prostitutes hooking up with older western guys well thats asia all over, not something peculiar about pattaya.
Oh and one thing for all you budding sex toursits out there(i mean just about everyone is) you will be happy to hear that Pattaya has more prettier girls and more exotic ladyboys than Bangkok and that they are also one third the price of their big city counterparts. 200 baht gets you a 1 hr massage in Pattaya and its 600 baht in bangkok.
Yes take your whole family for a stroll down walking street to see these depraved souls and oversexed tourists! why not? they will see them everywhere in thailand anyway and walking street has more flashing lights and loud music per sqr metre than any other place... amust see!
Also a bit of advice for the cheap charlies out there who like to get maximum bang for their buck. You will fly AirAsia because they are cheap! then u will find the cheapest airfare is to bangkok DMK airport, not the main BKK airport.
Now when you get to DMK ask an airport staff member where to find the A1 bus to MoChit bus station. Get on this bus get off at Mochit and then go to where they sell the tickets for the Pattaya bus(it leaves every half hour). Do it this way and u can get to pattaya for less $4 US.
otherwise get ripped by taxi 1200 baht all the way DMK to hotel in pattaya $40 US.
cheers (better still dont even bother with thailand and get a plane to phnom penh for $50US where beer is 50 cents ice cold and yummy and the people are way nicer!)
