We arrived in Pattaya after a stressful bus journey. Nobody spoke English and we had no idea where to get off. We walked for ages in blistering heat and managed to find a much needed tourist information office. We got booked in a pretty swanky hotel. The best I have stayed in.
Pattaya was a real eye opener. There is a big sex trade in Thailand and Pattaya is the main place for it.
We went to walking street and went into a bar. Behind the bar is loads of girls. They are all for sale. The first bar we was being pressured into getting the girls so we had a couple of beers and played a couple of games of connect 4 and went on our way. The next bar was better. It was the same formatt but once they realised we just wanted to have a beer all the girls where cool. It's the first time I have partied with a group of prosituted but I had a really good time (not in that way, don't worry). At some point in the night I saw a girl eating sausaged and chillies. I asked if I could have one. The next minute, my mouth was on fire! I was dizzy. I didn't know where I was. Then the vommitting started. I can't comprehend how hot that chilly was. All the girls where looking after me and giving me water, milk and then a free beer because they felt bad. So every cloud...
A girl come in selling these sort of bands that you put round you hand. She said they where 1 baht (60baht = 1 pound). We went crazy bought all the girls one. I got them on my foot loads on my hands, after all they where only 1baht right? WRONG! she ment 100baht. We paid about 20 quid for these things. I big waste of money but pretty funny never the less.
We went to an internet cafe after this. We met what we thought was 2 girls. We went for some food and then decided to go to the beach. Me and one of the girls went swimming and then she told me that her friend was a lady boy. It all made sence. The broad shoulders, deep voice, manly jaw. I couldn't believe I didn't notice. I just hoped al did on the shore. Luckily he did. Me and B (the Thai girl) really got on. We stayed up till 3pm the next day just chatting and messing about. She lived in Cambodia and I hope I will see her again because she was just a nice person. She looked after me when I was ill. sorted me and al out with a hotel room, did my washing. She probably wanted to marry me and come to England but that was never happening.
Other noticeable things that happened in Pattaya - one night I got a free beer, free subway, free massage, free fortune telling, a job, free cake. I think it's just because I was being friendly and not the typical guy going over there to get drunk take drugs and buy girls. We also got a girl to sack her sister for being lazy. I hope she was only joking. We spent 3 nights in Pattaya and then travelled to Koh Samui
