Off Pattaya's beaten path

A few days ago, while out looking for pool villas to market the road that we were driving on ended...

We were only 15 minutes from the centre of Pattaya but found ourselves well off Pattaya's beaten path.

While Khun May was turning the car around I took this photograph of a Thai person's Sala surrounded by coconut husks and thought: Before the concrete and High Rises came THIS WAS PATTAYA.

It was pleasing to see that there are unspoilt spots like this in Pattaya; and so close to what is now Pattaya City.

It put a smile on my face!
