Day 154 – 160 Sunny and funny Pattaya in Thailand

This sign was put up in front of the immigration entrance in the airport 🙂 Good to know…

After a tiny stop in Europe (two weeks in Subotica in Serbia) we headed for Asia again. Our plane arrived Bangkok in Thailand one early november morning after some 10 – 11 hours flight from Europe. Luckily Ole was at the airport to pick us up and we went for some relaxing days in Pattaya at the east coast of the Gulf of Thailand (about 100 km south-east of Bangkok and a 1.5 hours drive by car). Our stay consisted of lazy days in the sun and shade, late breakfasts and dinners eating yummy food, going to the beach or the rooftop pool area to swim, read books and play with Luna, visits to the rainforest to try zip-lining from scary heights (oh my!) and a watching animals at a zoo not far from the coastline. Pattaya is well-known as a tourist magnet, late nights, beautiful beaches and playful people. We even ended up watching a Jet-ski world cup competition there. The city consists of only 100 000 inhabitants but if you count the bigger area around the city there is over 1 million people living there. We stayed in Jomtien a little outside the city center and that was a good choice as the beaches there had white sand and extended over many kilometers… After chasing many attractions and famous sights in many countries on our worldwide trip, this place was a nice and relaxed experience for our family. We got some rest and are gathered strength to our next stop on this journey – which we had planned to be Bangkok!!! I think gathering strength before going there was a wise thing to do…

    • Hei igjen Greta! Beklager seint svar… Nå har vi hatt en lang juleferie fra blogg og PC’er. Og nå – nytt år og nye blogginnlegg! 🙂 Håper dere også hadde en super julefeiring og at året har begynt på en god måte. Tusen takk for gode ønsker for videre reise. Håper den blir like fin som den har vært – selv om vi har blitt en mindre etter at Ib dro hjem til Trondheim. 🙂 Han syntes et halvt år fikk holde! 🙂 Ønsker også dere et kjempefint og godt nytt år med mange gode opplevelser med gode venner og familie.
