Pattaya seems to be a popular spot for tourists, notwithstanding the dirty beaches, red light areas and high crime rate. Strangely enough, its popularity isn’t tied to just the “naughty boys”, but plenty of mainstream tourists make their way to Pattaya as well. In fact, the single male traveller is no longer even the dominant tourist in Pattaya. Instead, the Chinese package tourists and Russian families on budget beach resort trips have taken over.
For those that are interested in taking a trip to Pattaya, I have started a youtube video log which gives comprehensive information about holidaying in sin city by the sea.

The second part was just uploaded today, and can be found here: http://youtu.be/asVuiwRwgNA
