We stayed 4 days in the center of Pattaya at the Marriott hotel resort which has a shopping & entertaining centre next door called Royal Garden plaza. Very convenient we thought, since everything is close by. But we forgot that we still had to drive to most places we wanted to see and now every time we go out, we are stuck in a traffic jam! Pfew.. Pattaya is so much more busy than when we used to live here 7 years ago!
But still we had tons of fun! The pool was beautiful and fun, although you can't see that on JJ and Jezz's face :-)
Ripley's Believe it or Not was there, and the girls loved it!! The museum with all the weird facts, and the scary guys...
The frozen statue was intriguing to the girls..
And our first night dinner at Benihana the Japanese steak house, which the girls had been before and LOVED. At Benihana the food is choreographed by the expertise of the chefs who entertain you with great panache as they prepare your meal at the cooking station in front of you. Highly skilled in the art of “Eatertainment” each personal chef performs as they cook marinated tender steaks, and arrangement of seafood such as Japanese Scallops and Tiger Prawns together with fresh vegetable selection. All in traditional Japanese style on a hibachi table (an American-style term for "teppan-yaki" cooking. Teppan meaning “steel grill” and yaki meaning “broiled”).
The first day was short, since we had to fly from Samui to Bangkok and then drive to Pattaya, about 1,5 hours. So taking it easy on the first day!
But there were many more fun things we did, so wait for more!
