Civilisation has operated in two ways - To make one part of society more affluent and the other more wretched than would have been the lot of either in a natural state
There are Natural Rights and Civil Rights. Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
Where Our Power to Execute Our Natural Rights is Perfect, Government has No Legitimate Jurisdiction
When the Forces for War are Greater than the Forces for Peace   Then the World is in Danger
Politics is not a Dirty Word. It is a Way of Life. How is Your Way of Life Today ?

Pattaya – Be Forewarned

Pattaya Yellow and Blue Taxi


There has been a clamp down on charging !

They have no meter and have been asking the earth


But the starting point for a fare is 35 Baht, same as for Bangkok taxi


Tell the Driver you want 5kms on the clock =  5kms is 55baht,10kms is 101 baht


The rates are printed inside the cab behind the drivers seat with his ID and Cab No.


Agree the price before you get in – 5kms for 55 bht ? OK


If you need more just read it off the cab kilometre counter.


I tell you this because the Songthaew, convenient for some at 10bht a trip but

they have always been a law unto themselves by going off route at a whim or if they have few passengers.


This leaves you stranded. So always ask where the Songthaew is going if you want to be sure.


If you want further information about getting to & from Pattaya from Bangkok or the Swampy Airport, Accomodation Charges, Best & safest places to eat &b best bars for beer and Footie TV just get in touch.
