Housing Development in Huay Yai

Posted on 13 June 2014 by ABPC

Huay Yai is located a little over 10 kilometres from Central Pattaya to the south of Pattaya heading towards Sattahip. You can get there a few ways such as by travelling down the Sukhumvit Road, along the road that runs beside the railway line or, depending on your location from the Highway 36. There are of course other routes but I am sure you could find these quiet, picturesque routes in your free time!

Huay Yai is largely unspoilt at present although does have all the amenities that you would expect in any area of the city. There are plenty of 7 Elevens and markets were you could get your essentials but the drive back into Pattaya is very straight forward. There a number of good restaurants in the area such as The Glasshouse and The View. Nearby is the newly opened Mimosa entertainment complex that has a theatre, shops and shows. Also close by is the floating market that is located on the Sukhumvit Road close to the turn for Huay Yai. Slightly further away is the Cartoon Network water park and Nong Nooch Tropical Gardens, both of which are located on the Sukhumvit Road as you head towards Bang Saray. There are also a number of golf courses nearby such as the Phoenix Golf Club which is highly rated by many golf societies.

In Huay Yai itself there are no real condo’s to speak of although there are some in the nearby area of Na Jomtien. There are a number of high quality housing estates such as the Baan Balina villages, Paragon Park and Huay Yai Villas. All of these villages are well built and well maintained, usually coming with private pools and are considerably cheaper than what you would pay for a similar property closer to Central Pattaya. A quality 3 bedroom, 2 bedroom house with private pool in the area starts at around THB4 million although obviously houses without pools are much less. At the top end you may be looking to pay in excess of THB20 million but you will get considerably more for your money than you would in other popular areas.Huay Yai

How to get to Koh Chang and what to do!

Posted on 09 June 2014 by ABPC

Koh Chang is a beautiful island in Trat province which is approximately a 4 and half hour drive to the south from Pattaya.  The easiest way to get there by car is by taking the Highway 36 towards Rayong and then picking up the Highway 3 which will take you directly into Trat.  Once you arrive in Trat you would be looking for signposts to Ao Thammachart or Koh Chang Ferry Pier.  The ferries run between 6.30am and 7.00pm.  Minibuses are also available from many places around Bangkok and Pattaya – usually they are very reasonably priced.

Once you have arrived in Koh Chang you will obviously be looking to explore all the delights that this fantastic island has to offer.  White Sand Beach is one of the most popular areas of Koh Chang and is certainly one of the most picturesque.  As the name would suggest, there are long stretches of white sand and beautiful clear, blue sea waters making this the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing break.  The area has a wide selection of restaurants, bars, hotels and shops offering everything that you ever wish for without being of the same level as Pattaya.  Prices range from budget to the high end.

One of the first places that many people head to is the famous 15 Palms Beach Bar which is located in White Sands Beach area.       15 Palms was established in 1999 and is still run by the same original owner who continues to offer great food, cold beers and nightly beach barbeques where you can go and enjoy a romantic sunset looking out to sea.  Food is served from 8am until late and free WiFi is available.  15 Palms has partner companies that can assist you with arranging other trips such as diving excursions or trips to neighbouring islands.

Beaches in Rayong

Posted on 04 June 2014 by ABPC

Rayong is a beautiful province in the South of Thailand. The province is largely made up of beautiful coastal scenes against a backdrop of rolling hills, and a number of islands also form part of Rayong. Combined with a year-round warm climate, this makes the province a perfect destination for a beach holiday. Some of the most notable beaches are:

Hat Sai Kaew
Hat Sai Kaew, or the Diamond Beach, has a length of over a kilometre and many people consider it one of the best beaches in the province. This reputation does mean that it tends to get a little busy, so it might not be the best choice if you want a secluded spot for relaxation. If you want a high-quality beach with a nightlife scene, on the other hand, Hat Sai Kaew is one of the best destinations you are ever likely to find.

Rayong Beach

Hat Sai Thong
Hat Sai Thong, or the Golden Beach, is a wonderful private spot for relaxing by the calm ocean waters. The beach is covered in soft white sand and lined with scenic palm trees on one side and warm, clean sea on the other. It is less busy than Hat Sai Kaew and lacks the buzzing nightlife, but still provides access to plenty of wonderful seafood restaurants.

Hat Sai Thong Beach

Had Mae Rampeung
Had Mae Rampeung is a peaceful beach, yet one that is loved by tourists and locals alike. Though it is a popular beach, it is also the longest in Rayong at roughly 7.5 miles, so there is plenty of space for everyone. The result is a quiet, clean, scenic beach which also forms part of the beautiful Khao Laem Ya-Koh Samet National Park. It is also notable for its very calm waters, making the beach particularly well-suited for families with young children.

Mae Rh

Had Suan Son
Popular with locals but not quite so well-known among tourists, Had Suan Son is a fantastic beach for those who want to relax on the soft sand. The beach is lined by countless palm trees offering pleasant shade during the hotter parts of the day. At the weekend it can be busy because residents of Bangkok frequently travel there for a seaside picnic, but during the week the beach is usually a quiet place away from the crowds. Even when the Bangkok picnickers do flock there at weekends, it is usually possible to find a place to relax.

Ao Kai-Laem Tan
A quiet and relatively undiscovered spot, Ao Kai-Laem Tan is a beautiful cape close to the Klaeng District. It is a small, quiet, yet scenic and pleasant place which is just well-known enough to have developed some pleasant amenities. In particular, a nearby fishing village offers some fantastic seafood restaurants that prove consistently popular with those tourists that do know about the area’s charms.

5 Activities to get Your Heart Racing in Pattaya

Posted on 27 May 2014 by ABPC

Pattaya is a magnificent coastal city in the Eastern part of Thailand. The city and the surrounding area benefit from a thriving tourist trade, thanks in part to the beautiful beaches that can be found along the coastline. However, while relaxing on the beach is certainly a pleasant way to spend a holiday it is not the only experience Pattaya has to offer. On the contrary, the city is home to some activities which may be great fun but are certainly not relaxing.

 

Rocket Ball

Rocket ball is a unique, quirky and utterly thrilling experience. Many of the braver visitors to Pattaya savour the adrenaline rush it offers. Two daring passengers climb into a steel ball which is suspended between two steel towers by a special, ultra-tough cord. The ball is catapulted into the air at high speed where it swings, bounces and plummets around. The rocket ball reaches heights of 50 metres and reaches speeds of more than 60 miles per hour (100km/h) in less than a second. The two bold passengers get the flight of their lives.

Zip Line

The “Flight of the Gibbon” zip line is ever-popular with thrill-seeking tourists who come to Pattaya. It provides a new and more exciting way to see Thailand’s spectacular rainforests. The jungle may be beautiful from ground level, but it is even more incredible when you get to see it from high in the treetops like a gibbon. At over 1.8 miles (3km) long, this is the longest zip line course in the world, and gives you the chance to experience a thrilling ride and admire some of the most beautiful scenery in the world.

Watersports

Pattaya’s wonderful coastline is good for more than just relaxing on the beach. A number of thrilling, heart-pumping watersports can be enjoyed on the surface of the glistening sea. Water skiing is one popular option, allowing you to glide across the surface of the water behind a fast-moving speed boat. Paragliding and paramotoring, meanwhile, allow you to soar suspended in midair above the spectacular waterscape.

Sky Diving

Pattaya can be found in one of the most spectacular regions of Thailand and there is plenty of spectacular scenery. Thrill-lovers may find this scenery is best admired from a few thousand feet above. A sky dive will start with a scenic plane ride, which will give you a chance to see all kinds of terrain stretch into the distance. The ride will end not with a smooth landing but with a thrilling, high-speed descent.

Go Karting

Go Karting is a popular activity in Pattaya, and the city boasts some excellent facilities such as Pattaya Kart Speedway. Speed-demons can hurtle around a variety of race tracks in small but surprisingly speedy lightweight karts. Those who want to experience a bigger thrill and a greater challenge can tackle off-road tracks for a bumpy, muddy but thrill-packed ride. Even children can join in the fun, with child-sized karts which can be driven around special smaller racetracks.
