Walking Street Photos part 1
Welcome to this walking tour showing Walking
Street photos. If this is the first page you have seen on this
site you may want to see the introduction to this tour of
If you are traveling from the north along
Beach Road you will come to South Pattaya Road (or Pattaya
Tai.) Here most traffic during the daytime and all at night
turns left onto South Pattaya Road. It is here that the Walking
Street photos on this walking tour starts.
Late last year the old Walking Street
welcome sign was taken down. It was taken down and the two
pillars you see below were quickly put in place for the new
sign. However since this is Thailand work has ground to a halt
and it is still not finished. Maybe on day they will get around
to finishing it.
On the right you can see a beer bar complex.
At the rear of this complex is the new Beer Garden modelled on
the one in Bangkok.
Here is a closer look at what will eventually be the
new Walking Street sign.
Now we get into Walking Street. During the
day there are many shops open. Shown here are as optician,
Pharmacy amongst others. There are also many shops like
During the day there are cars and motorbikes
parked on the Walking Street. At night they are all gone.
This next photo looks back towards the start of
At this end of Walking Street there are a
few seafood restaurants. They are worth a try. At night you
will see people trying to attract customers and you will hear
the Thai version of 'weeellcome.'
All the sois that run off Walking street
head east because on the west is the ocean. Therefore on this
tour they all are on the left side of Walking Street. The first
one is Soi 14. On later pages of this tour will explored bout
Soi 14 and all the other sois of Walking Street.
This photo was taken near Soi 14 looking
south. If you can see the Beach Club sign that is Soi 15.
There is a real confused mangle of signs on
Walking Street. Lucifer Disco is a good place to meet a nice
Thai lady. If loud music is not your style then you may want to
give it a miss.
After Soi 15 is Soi Diamond. This soi has many bars, gogos
Some of the gogo bars on Walking Street are
open in the days. You will know they are open as they will have
some girls outside trying to attract customers.
This photo is taken between Soi Diamond and Soi Happy
At the end of Soi Happy is Happy Agogo. It
is one of the better gogo bars in town. As you can see the soi
also has open-air beer bars.
There are a number of Irish theme bars in Pattaya. This one
is obviously Molly Malone's.
The next photo is taken a little past Soi Happy and
The next soi along is Soi BJ.
There are many bars and gogo bars in this area.
Jenny Star Bar is a well know bar in
Pattaya. I would say infamous rather than well known. It is a
ladyboy bar and you will find many ladyboys standing outside at
On the other side of the road from Jenny
Star Bar is Soi Lucky Star. Again this soi has many bars. The
soi heads to Marine Plaza that you will see on a later
Getting a little further along Walking Street and looking
In the late afternoon the Thais put out
offerings to Buddha to bring them good luck. Don't even think
about taking some of the food or drink!
Still many bars and gogos down this end.
This photo was taken at abut the same spot
as the last one but looking back the other way. The 'big tree'
is somewhat of a landmark in Walking Street. You will notice
that the road takes a bit of a bend here.
The reason this tree is left more or less
untouched is that the Thais believe that the tree in inhabited
by a spirit. This an animist belief and is common in
