On 6th through 11th we went to Pataya and Bangkok. Just 4 friends. From the airport to Pataya. Found a Jain restaurant. Ate at Alibaba. The hotel was fantastic – Hard Rock Cafe and their foam Party was a delight. Roamed the famous Walking street of Pataya. Did Parachute ride too.
Bangkok on the other hand was humdrum but I met an old school time friend after about 40 years.
^ days after New Years, the Pataya beach was still beautifully lit.
