Ok, so now my journey took me to Thailand, specifically Pattaya and Rayong.
Hotel of choice was the Marriat. This is a crazy town with crazy lifestyles, and really good food.
I'll just get with the random pics
Walking Street at night
That's a big beer. Singha is Thai beer, and was actually pretty good
South end of the town, looking back north
This is Coral Island, about a 20 min boat ride from Pattaya.
Basically you "rent" a boat and driver for the day. They run you o the island and stay there until you want them to drive you back. That means there is a pile of boats out there.
More great food on Coral Island
wild, but tame monkeys
Ont the beach right in front of the Marriott, looking south west
The Cocktail Bus... a modified VW bus. These are all over the place. They obviously don't drive.
Some shots of the Marriott, and the courtyard
Swim-up bar, that we never used
