That habit can turn out quite badly for you.

But back to your question. I don't get why you would prefer Pratumnak over Jomtien or Naklua. Girl-wise they are all pretty bad, with pratumnak being the worst. Both Jomtien and Naklua have more bars with girls then Pratumnak, just quality isn't great. Transportation-wise I prefer Jomtien and Naklua because of the baht bus.

This year I'm trying soi AR. Not in the middle of the madness, but not far from it either. Also some very nice hotels.

Where is Soi AR?  I assume that AR is short for something but I can't guess what it is.  Thanks.

you might be sick of looking at is buakhao but you don't wanna lose the access. How about soi diana?

some decent hotels there and yet perfectly placed

I always stay soi AR plenty of hotels there now and always great value,at mind is my favourite however if on a budget Nova Gold is hard to beat and usually 1000bht per night,close to Soi 6 is the main benefit

I have a nostalgic sadness about the title of this thread. 

It seems not really that long ago that I stumbled onto a newly developed street with just a couple of guest houses and little else. Nice quiet area it was, but had a bar complex not that far away. Settled in. The only real problem was that the nearest money changer was quite a long hike away. No 7/11 either.

Stayed there over the next decade or so when visiting, Watched it grow and grow. But I never knew the name of the street or area … no need to, because I knew where it was and how to get there.

One trip about 14 years ago, an English mate had emailed to say he was off to Pattaya, and it happened that  it was a term break for me so I arranged to meet him there. He told me he would stay in Soi Bukhaew and I had zero idea of where or what that was … … …  … I nearly went crazy trying to find it on a map!

Staying long term or over the holidays, time duration is a factor in deciding the locality.

Presumably Soi Arunothai, out past 3rd Rd. Low-key falang/Thai area. Nirun condo is the accommodation focal point. 

 

1st trip you stay in a spiffy Beach Road hotel.

2nd trip you decide you don't need to pay for a sea view and go for the Second Rd hotels which are slightly cheaper.
 
3rd trip you notice there are cheap guesthouses on Soi Buakhao and stay there.
 
4th trip you discover that the area between 3rd Road & Sukhumvit Rd is cheaper again and stay there.
 
Finally you end up living on the Darkside, out past Sukhumvit completely mastered the art of living cheaply in LOS.

Why are you sick of Soi Buakhao? We come for the bars, restaurants, hotels and girls and SB has more than any other area.  Coming on holiday i wouldn't stay anywhere else.

Honey Lodge next to WS. Close to beer bars, gogos, places to ear and discos. Perfect location really with easy access to baht buses and mototaxi.

Just looked it up, great location. Good if you are planning on taking a lot of girls from Walking Street, but that will be a bit of drain on funds.

Sounds like a change is required, Pattaya is obviously not for you anymore so go elsewhere.

Although I have not stayed here, I met a couple of guys who swear by it. Also the web site/rooms look good.

Personally I stay around Bhukow cos I love it.

I live just off Soi AR and I rarely see an Indian tourist. A few live here (maybe a handful) but more Chinese tourists . The majority of people are either expats from Europe and Thais.

If you’re seeking an experience...here’s a bit from my recent trip report....Soi 7 ....I normally stay on Soi 8 at sunshine residences.....made a change this year....the grass isn’t always greener.

Rosie OGradys for 6 nights...maybe.

check in was slow....the girl who does check in was out....so many phone calls not much action.  Of course no hint of apology. Then had to fill out my own reporting doc.   Don’t they have a computer? I booked on line...almost all the info is there. TIT, just roll with it.

 The horror...I’m on the 4th floor....no elevator....off we go then.  Slide the stairwell door open and it hits me....like a creepingfunk that enters your nose and clothes and then clings....by the time I’m at the  3rd floor and time for a rest I think I’ve out run it.  

Room is ok, start to unpack oh no the safe is locked.......down thru the funk I have to go.....quick fix from the boss on the safe with the magic key.  Seems a nice chap.

Now on my 2nd full day I’ve learnt to hold my breath for a flight and a half and I miss most of the stench.   Any biologists out there should come along with a test kit....it’s not sewer smell....something darker, it could be alive.

i had a few beers and dinner, then being cash depleted  asked to pay by card.  Girl looked at the chits...”no cannot minimum 500. ATM over there”  I said I’m staying here...which she knew...can we just keep count...”no cannot” and she walked off.

Are you going to tell me how much the bill is then?  Over she comes to add the chits again.  Anyways was close enough to 500 to be not worth a walk across the road...Just charge 500 then.   Then another girl had to come check what I meant.   Good done.

Pics of the room.does the job.
