Were still on Bangkok and our goal is to shop before transferring to Pattaya city! We had a big breakfast to prepare for the fun day ahead.
We found a nearby morning market which I fell in love with. I was so happy with the clothes' quality and price that I went missing for about an hour. :P When Sarie and Patty found me, I had 2 dress and 4 tops for less than 2000baht.
We stayed on a nearby coffee shop to kill time and ironically, I tried an ice cream instead of coffee LOL. By 10AM Siam Paragon opened and it was a shopping heaven for Sarie & Patty because its filled with high end designer stuff. We went inside Mango where I found the perfect bag pasalubong for my nanay! I was also happy to see a $3000baht lace dress thats almost similar to the $250baht lace dress I bought on the morning market.
We checked out the beach then decided to buy pasalubong instead. Sarie & Patty was looking for this tamarind delicacy, we walked until its almost sunset but they couldnt find it on the otherhand I went ended up with a big plastic of pasalubongs. Pattaya beach is nice but just as good as any beach in Batangas. The main difference is, Pattaya is made for tourists, it has the big hotels and establishments to make it a tourist destination.
Actually, no hotel has direct access to the shore, you need to cross the road. After some creepy guy began talking to us, we decided to go back to Pattaya Centre and used the pool instead. The water is nice and its very private, maybe because we broke the rule of no swimming after 7PM 0.0
It was only the 2nd day but we already missed our burgers and fries! We went to old reliable Burger King for dinner :P So much for cultural/food immersion. We also found a custom Thai McDonalds!
After loading carbs, we have enough energy again to go on a night market! More souvenir shopping for Saria & Patty!
