It is without doubt that since the Vietnam war that the biggest attraction in fun town are the Pattaya Bars and their ladies.
Pattaya bars transformed a once a sleepy little fishing village into the thriving seaside resort it is today.
There has been much speculation over the years as to just how many bars there is in Pattaya, it is suggested it is in the many 1,000’s.
If you were to start at Naklua and try to take a beer or 2 in every bar from there to Walking Street, it would take a very long time.
Although the area between the Dolphin roundabout and the start of Walking Street contains mostly beer bars, more and more GoGo bars have sprung up.
These tend to be in the Soi LK Metro area and on Soi Bua Khao in the same vicinity, they tend to be better value than their Walking Street cousins.
There is little doubt that cheap cold beers are not the main attraction in most Pattaya bars, so what is, the ladies of course.
There are no shortage of drop dead gorgeous ladies filtering down from deepest, darkest Isaan.
So much so that Pattaya has been described as the Capital of Isaan, even though it is several 100kms south.
As little as decade ago you almost never saw a chubby girl in Pattaya, but sadly, there appears to be an abundance of somewhat overweight ladies now.
Back to the Pattaya bars, many are concentrated in particular Sois, Soi 6 or Soi Half Dozen as we married guys refer to it, is a prime example.
If you have never been to Soi 6 you are in for a fun time, it is without a doubt the hottest soi in fun town.
Soi’s 7 & 8 also contain large amounts of bars and other venues like Coyote clubs.
Back across 2nd Rd there is also Pattaya New Plaza, full of open beers bars.
Continuing down Beach Rd towards Walking St you will find the Tahitian Queen, one of Pattaya’s first GoGo bars, between Soi’s 12 & 13.
Soi’s 13, 13/1, 13/2 (Soi Post Office) also contain many bars, Soi’s 13/3 and 13/4 are best avoided unless Boys are your thing.
One spot worth a visit is the Pattaya Beer Garden on the right jutting out over the water, a nice spot for a cold beer and a bite to eat.
Watch out for the ladies in the bars out front of the Pattaya Beer Garden, you may not get to have that bite to eat.
Finally you will arrive in Walking St, once described as the most hedonistic place on earth.
A GoGo’s abound in Walking St, along with dance clubs, live music venues, Seafood Restaurants and just about anything else you can think of.
So basically speaking, no matter where you stay in Pattaya, you can hardly walk 100 metres without bumping into yet another Pattaya bar.
Most decorated with fancy lights and bar girls in sexy gear trying to drag you in.
