“Not worth it!”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

Unless you are after a h***er, then this is NOT a place for family, shopping, or any other touristic activity.
Dirty, crowded, not safe.
During day time, there is nice beach view, but there are similar or even better spots in Pattaya.

Lots of thieves...esp. In front of soi 13...avoid to show off....do not argue with the transexuals...they like men..

“Great if u like to live dangerously, lol.”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

An ok beach, but NOT suitable fr families, as its reserved fr ladys/ladyboys, and gents who are looking for a VERY good time, lol. They do have some good market stalls , but its not the bargain place it once was. Theres also a few good shopping malls and a great supermarket nearby, ( Big C ). ALWAYS, be aware of ure valuables though, as theres lots of scams to part u from ure money. Taxis will ALWAYS try to charge you more money , even though theyre metered. Dont be fooled, just tell them its not ure first time in Pattaya. They never switch the meter on anyway, cos as long as they make the 1 thousand baht to pay the boss fr their taxi, the rest belongs to them. Haggle a bit, but dont be too cheeky. You will always find 1 who will take you. The place is now reffered to as Little Moscow, because of its influx of russians, but hardly any Thais speak the language, most Thais speak English, and understand English perfectly well. Like I said, enjoy yourself, but be self aware at all times.

“Must take a walk here”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

Very nice promenade. Must must take a walk here. Lots of food stalls. Lots of chairs to sit by the beach. Easy chairs at easy rentals; savour the sea breeze. If you area non-vegetarian there lots of treats awaiting you; lovely tempting flavours filling the atmosphere. You can enjoy the street food to your hearts delight. Food is clean, piping hot and hygenic.

“this is freelancer world”
Reviewed December 16, 2013

if you go to pattaya and you are blind or stupid and not heard about what pattaya is all about (the devils back yard ) then yes the night life the beach road will shock you it is lined with freelancers working lets not mix words so if you want to keep away from them either take a tuk for 10 baht not 20 only tourists pay 20 baht 10 is the local rate ps I found this out from locals so give driver 10 baht if he argues wait till the next tuk or walk on the shop side there you will be hassled by indian taylors instead or taxi drivers
if however you are looking for someone to keep you company for the night 500baht will get you company and of course to choice is yours.. take your pick enjoy what the beach road has to offer its not all bad ps plenty of 7 11s for supplies in pattaya
