Condominium advice for Pattaya and Jomtien Beach, Thailand

Because I live close to Pattaya and Jomtien Beach here in Thailand and know the whole place pretty well, I have often been asked for advice on where I think is best to rent or buy a condominium in the area. Well, I have to say that in all honesty I think the very best place is View Talay 2 in Jomtien Beach, especially building A although the other building, B, is also very nice.

The main reasons why I like that condominium complex more than any other are because it is a quiet, friendly and well-maintained complex, it is bright, spacious and airy so you always feel relaxed, and both buildings have lots of shops and facilities on site including huge swimming pools each with poolside bar/restaurants.

Combined with all that is the fact that it is excellent value for money considering it is so close to everything the area has to offer: it is a 5 minute quick walk or 10 minute gentle stroll to both Jomtien and Dongtan beaches (or two minutes by baht bus), the same to Jomtien market and all the local bars and restaurants, and it is also right next to the main baht bus route into Pattaya city with all it's world-famous tourist attractions and nightlife, with such a journey typically taking about 10 minutes to the southern end of the city where Walking Street starts.

So all-in-all it is, in my opinion, the best place to rent or buy a condo in the whole Pattaya/Jomtien bay area for enjoying a lovely stay in one of the world's best holiday destinations!

Here are a few links to websites with more information and condos to rent in the complex (which I have no affiliation with, by the way):

I am using Facebook more than blogging

Because I don't have much spare time at the moment, being a new mother and all, I am using my Facebook account via my mobile phone for writing most of my online thoughts for the time being, so there will be a bit less stuff on this blog for a while.

Cars 2 and Lightning McQueen online games

Toy Story 3 online games and wallpaper

One of the posters for the 2010 movie "Toy Story 3"

Pixar's newest 3D movie, Toy Story 3, is released in North America today. I am really looking forward to seeing it when it is released here in Thailand because I am a huge fan of all the cartoons Pixar produce, although apparently we have to wait until August 12th for its Thai release, which is a very long delay.

It is highly likely that pirate DVDs of the film will be widely available here before then, which of course is a bad thing, but if I may say so it will somewhat serve Pixar right for creating such a long delay in the first place. Surely the best way to stop movie pirating is to release movies simultaneously all around the world?

Anyway, to make up for this rather ridiculous almost two month wait, you can play some great free Toy Story 3 Flash online games here:

16 Toy Story 3 online games

Including these 4 games:

  Buzz Lightyear: Operation Alien Rescue

  Toy Story: Bowl-o-Rama

  Buzz Lightyear: Galactic Shootout

  Toy Story: 2-in-1 Shooting

And you can get some lovely free Toy Story 3 wallpaper background pictures here:

The Bangkok curfew has now been lifted!

Thank goodness for that, maybe we can get back to normal living again now!

This means that the long-running political protests and violent military crackdowns of this year are all now officially over, and therefore Thailand has returned to its peaceful normal self.

So, it is now officially safe for tourists to return here. Please come back and enjoy the real Thailand once again!!
