Pattaya, Thailand

My friend just got back from a trip to Pattaya, Thailand, and he really enjoyed it. It has been some years since I was in Pattaya, but I found it a very memorable trip -- and not the best kind of memories. I have to give a warning to anyone going to Pattaya: when you are on the beaches, believe every horror story you've ever heard. I've heard over and over that the folks there are ready and waiting to take advantage of tourists in any way they can. And I have found it to be very true. Not only did I find people out to get more money for items than was reasonable, but I found the guys there quick to take advantage of crowded conditions and virtually molest women in public places. Ugh.

Do be aware, and do be careful.

And, if you really want my opinion, I would suggest a trip to Krabi instead. I enjoyed my stay there much more.
