Outside Terminal 21 In Pattaya

Outside Terminal 21 In Pattaya

There are planes like this outside of Terminal 21 which is a giant ass mall chain here in Thailand. I have never been in as I break out in hives when I enter a mall. Least that’s the story I am sticking with. If you are wondering what airline SCB is well I got bad news, it isn’t. SCB stands for Siam Commercial Bank which was founded by the monarchy in 1907 and still remains it’s biggest shareholder. Oh, if…

Lighthouse At Bali Hai

Lighthouse At Bali Hai

The famous or neglected lighthouse at Bali Hai in Pattaya, Thailand. Bali Hai is just the area along the shore that boats dock and there is a large pier that runs out into the Gulf of Thailand that larger ferry’s and other boats dock. It’s a tourist attraction on its own. I just haven’t gone to it because it was closed until recently. The lighthouse isn’t accessible unless you really feel like walking way too far or have a motorbike…

Modernity And Traditional In Thailand

Modernity And Traditional In Thailand

This was taken off Wongamat Beach in Thailand. It’s interesting to see a full-blown local fishing area next to these very expensive tourist and ex-pat condos. The condos are all private beaches that are maintained and Wongamat is a rocky little beach used mostly by locals because parking and public access is so limited. It’s a bit of a contrast that lends it’s self to the real Thailand and not the postcard images the tourist industry wants you to see….

Signs In Jomtien Thailand

Signs In Jomtien Thailand

I do love a good sign here. I have missed taking a photo of But Stop when bus was misspelled but you can’t have everything in life. All of these except the police box was taken here in Jomtien where I live. The police box was taken in Pattaya when I was up there on an excursion. The best thing about these types of shots is that they are easy and just fun to take. Nothing serious about them. Also,…

Phra Pokklao Ariyakhet

Phra Pokklao Ariyakhet

I could explain this or I could just let the website for Wat Yanasangvararam do the heavy lifting for me. I think I will do the latter. What I do know is that I could not get close to the statue at the end due to the fact that two temple dogs weren’t thrilled with my presence and while I normally shoo them off in Thai they weren’t backing down so this is all I could get. Now for the…

A Tuk Tuk In Thailand

A Tuk Tuk In Thailand

Where I live in Thailand a tuk tuk is rare. We use songthaew’s (Baht bus), motorbike taxis, and if you are a masochist a real taxi if you wish to be triple charged for a trip. So seeing a tuk tuk is not a common sight. In fact, it’s illegal in my city to use a tuk tuk as paid transport. Businesses can use them to ferry customers from their location to another but there can be no fee. Not…

Phra Boromthat Chedi Maha Chakripipat

Phra Boromthat Chedi Maha Chakripipat

If you are wondering what Phra Boromthat Chedi Maha Chakripipat means, it’s a roughly translated to mean the Stupa that contains the Buddha’s relics for the progress and stability of the Chakri Dynasty. You can read more about this here. I took this image and a few others at Wat Yanasangvararam when I took a drive out there and packed a camera. I like to go walking in different areas. It was nice because this is normally a tourist temple….

Little Restaurant On A Back Soi

Little Restaurant On A Back Soi

If you haven’t figured out I live in Thailand; surprise! I live in Thailand. With most crap shut down due to some virus that’s going around like cooties leaves me nothing but time. Not that I did a lot before. However, napping, watching TV and reading is hard work along with socializing with friends and keeping the San Miguel Brewery in the black financially. I still do the napping, TV watching and reading but the socializing seems to have diminished…
