After visiting the ‘Buddha On The Hill’, we took a baht bus in the wrong direction and ended up on Jomtien Beach. It’s noticeably quieter than it’s neighbour in Pattaya.
For those unfamiliar with either; there is an abundance of pre arranged deck chair seating available for a small fee. Through payment and making oneself stationary you can find yourself subject to being approached by hawkers who offer food, goods and services as a means to their income.
On this occasion we chose to stop in a nearby shop, bought a drink and some snacks and sat on some concrete seating, observing a volleyball game that had just happen to occur from a short distance.
There were a few tourists nearby attempting to get some sun, lying on towels on the beach. However my advice to them and too you, if you are in the area and wish to sunbath more exclusively, perhaps a trip to one of the quieter beaches on Koh Larn would be in order.
