    Sawadee Kha! I’m about to go to Pattaya and I’m quite excited about it. Already booked my flight to Pattaya and from there we’ll go travel around Samui and of course stay a couple of nights in Pattaya, I saw your awesome blog on Google and it seems that you know a lot about Pattaya City. Could you kindly give me a hint where to stay in Pattaya? I’ve read there are a couple of good resorts in the main town and in the northwest… Thank you in advance!
