Pattaya celebrates the Loy Krathong Festival.



The Loy Krathong festival is over for another year. We now report on the days activities and attended the official event held at the Bali Hai Port and went down to both Pattaya and Jomtien Beaches.

We began the evening with a look at the main roads coming into Pattaya. The normal traffic problems associated with Loy Krathing occurred and we can report that no major traffic jams were reported thanks to the work of the Traffic and Highway Police Divisions who worked hard to keep the traffic moving.

We checked out Walking Street in South Pattaya which was extremely busy until the early hours of the morning. At the Bali Hai Port, Khun Prachar, Governor of Chonburi Province was guest of honor at this Loy Krathong Festival Event which included Thai Traditional Dancing and a parade of Loy Krathong costumes. This was followed by a fireworks display. Food vendors occupied the center of Walking Street and could also be found around the Port and we spotted many who dressed up for the occasion armed with their Krathongs which were later released on Pattaya Beach.

Jomtien beach was also full of people launching their Krathong’s in to the sea. Fireworks and fire lanterns were seen along the entire stretch of Jomtien Beach.

We returned to Pattaya Beach the next morning to see for ourselves the aftermath of the Loy Krathong Festival and the water and beach was littered with used fireworks and Krathongs. We understand that City Hall dispatched a fleet of street cleaners to the Beach on Monday afternoon to begin the massive clear-up operation.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
