Real Estate Specialists Thailand (Blog Jan 2021)

Pattaya and the effects of the COVID-19 epidemic.

20210126 135617


Covid-19 personal Blog written by Barry Hayles, Real Estate Specialists Thailand Co Ltd along with Rest Station bar and restaurant Pattaya the latest venture we are undertaking, over 20 years’ experience living in this wonder full country Thailand with pleasure of living in Phuket Koh Samui, Bangkok and now settled in Pattaya for the last 16 years,

Let’s stand tall together Not only Thailand and Pattaya we are in urgent need for all countries worldwide to work with each other to beat Covid-19, Thailand is a model that should be followed by the rest of the word two of the safest countries in my opinion are New Zealand and Thailand in my opinion.

This blog is total based on my personal opinions and not those posted in media or news outlets.

The first thing to say is a very big Thankyou to the Thai government and Thailand local authorities for the actions in stopping the spread of The Covid-19 virus outbreak,

We were totally covid-19 free for over 200 days until some selfish people decided to sneak over the border from neighboring countries, again the Thai authorities acted swiftly to curb the spread with immediate action, some provinces going on lockdown, Fines handed down to people who refused to wear masks or accept social distancing, opening tracing applications for your smart phone,

Some people are against these Apps me I use all the time I like to know that if I am entering a shop, supermarket shopping mall basically anywhere the general public will be likely to go, I can use the QR scan on my phone which will immediately tell me if I am in a safe Zone medium zone, danger zone or high-risk zone, also a notification direct to me if any of the locations I have visited has any future infected cases of Covid-19,

Stay Safe where your face mask clean and disinfect hands


As we all know the Covid-19 epidemic has affected the entire planet Thailand and Pattaya are no exception to this, not just the Pattaya Thailand real estate market but all business are suffering from the high rollers to the many Thai street food sellers that Thailand is known for who live day to day with little or no savings,

But out of any negatives there are also some positives, as Real estate Specialists Thailand office is located in Pattaya and I live in Pattaya I will only comment on Pattaya and surrounding districts in this blog as it is all on personal experience.

I have driven around Pattaya over the last few days, absolutely amazing how quite the roads are, Traffic congestion had become a major problem in Pattaya and Jomtien, with the roads blocked at all times with traffic and in particular the hundreds of Tour coaches packed with Chinese tourists that would block the traffic up,

Yesterday I drove along Pattaya second Road Pattaya third road and even Pattaya beach road and the famous Pattaya walking street the only time my drive was disrupted was with the normal Traffic lights apart from that a completely free and easy drive and I have to say very pleasant drive, Driving along Pattaya beach road was a sight for sore eyes, on the beach side very quit with Pattaya beach being tranquil and as clean as I think I have ever seen it same for the ocean clean and inviting for a swim to cool off.

The negative side of the drive was the number of shops and businesses that are boarded up with for sale or for rent signs on the doors even Pattaya beach road in all my years living in Pattaya Thailand I don’t recall seeing for sale or rent sign on the properties on the beach road such high demand, owners did not have to advertise to sell the properties or rent the properties, Pattaya walking street once the hub of the Pattaya entertainment world with a mixture of modern music clubs and smaller beer bars, Pattaya live entertainment some of the best, even the street entertainers, One of the businesses that over the years are known to survive everything that comes up once the store open very rarely will it close its doors yes 7-11 Pattaya convenience stores 24 hours a day seven days a week ever popular and employing Thousands of staff,

All the seven elevens were closed as I drove down walking street lets pray and hope for their reopping and reemploying the Thousands of Thai staff who are currently unemployed in Pattaya,

What Covid-19 has done is also to put many Thai people homeless I noticed many more than usual who have set up the temporary beds in different locations so so sad to see this any place in the world but when it is your adopted home town it hits home a lot harder.

Let’s hope the restrictions on the Pattaya night life, Pattaya entertainment industry as well as all Pattaya businesses will come to a end soon to give some well needed relief to the Thai citizens and Pattaya business owners, I hope they can bounce back and recovery from the Covid -19 outbreak.

Jomtien beach just a short drive from Pattaya is in the same predicament with Covid-19 even though Jomtien is more family friendly with not as much of the vibrant Nightlife, don’t get me wrong there is still plenty of bars some fine 5 star restaurant’s and ample Thai street food, Shops and Jomtien night markets located in Jomtien, The Jomtien coast line stretches for 6 kilometers more if you include the ever popular Dongtan beach which is probably one of the cleanest beaches in Pattaya and surrounding districts, As of today 25th January 2021 all bars closed to customers restaurants can still open strictly no alcohol to be sold in the restaurant’s, Restaurants breaking the rules are risking heavy fines of up to 100,000 Thb also jail sentence is a possibility as well as the fine and the customers also receiving heavy fines

alcohol may be purchased at the local shop for take away only to drink at home, all the beaches in Pattaya and Jomtien well all the local beaches in the many Pattaya subdistricts all have a total ban on drinking alcohol on the beaches with strict social distancing in place.

I am sure if we follow the guide lines the Thai authorities set out for us to follow in the fight against Covid-19 then we will be back sooner rather than latter, unlike I am sorry to say when you look at the western world where the general public are acutely refusing to where mask or social distance putting the rest of the population at risk,

When I look on the news from my home country of England and is see the reaction the general public it makes me so pleased that I decided to move to Thailand over 20 year ago, and also it makes me sad that England is in such a terrible situation everyone blaming each other and nobody being there to stand up.

If Europe were to look at Thailand as a role model, they too could beat the Covid-19 outbreak sadly they won’t as they are too stubborn. To all in Europe during Covid-19 where a mask and social distance it does work in the battle against Covid-19.

My company Real Estate Specialists Thailand Co,. Ltd

Real Estate Specialists Thailand

is no different being a long-established Real Estate company we have seen many ups and down over the years, but in experience Pattaya and Thailand are very resilient Pattaya in particular tends to bounce back quicker than most as we have a great mix of expats, Tourists and the many workers in the numerous industrial estates within easy reach of Pattaya city, and obviously the Pattaya night life and entertainment sector attracts so many people none just none Thais but Thai nationals travel from all over Thailand to Pattaya, people living in Bangkok are tend to be travelling to Pattaya for weekends as the traveling time from Bangkok to Pattaya has come down a lot over the years with al the new infrastructure and motorways.

Many of the Pattaya doubters and negative minded people are saying that the Thailand Real Estate Market and the Pattaya Real Estate markets are dead and flat and will take many years to bounce back to the glory day of years gone by,

I personally do not listen to all this trash talk, Real estate specialists Thailand are not doing as much business as previous years and I think if anyone says different they are trying to paint over the truth, we have to acknowledge and respect the fact that with the Covid-19 virus in Thailand and Pattaya we are living in strange and unfamiliar times which will take time to get to a normal life but if we stay strong have good work ethics putting that little bit more effort in we will all survive until the good times come along again which I am sure they will and again Pattaya will be a City on the ocean that will attract many tourists and expats.

Some good news being reported in The Thai Media on this day (27th Jan 2021) this morning is the reopening of schools on the 1st of February and the easing of restrictions in many Thai provinces including Chonburi and Pattaya, rumor also has it that the Covid-19 vaccination program could possibly start mid-February, this would-be great news for Pattaya city as the Thai tourism sector will start to grow with confidence in travel between provinces this will only be good for Pattaya city.

We have to be realistic this is not the end of Covid-19 in Pattaya or Thailand but is a step in the right direction and a road to normality even though I do not personally believe the old normality in Pattaya Thailand or any where else in the world will ever return, we will have a new normal though and we have to embrace it with open arms,

Pattaya Second road Tuesday Jan 26th 2021 3Pm

Real Estate Specialists Thailand have recently relocated to larger premises located on Soi Cheyapruek 2, we decided to relocate because of a number of reasons our old office located in Jomtien complex had become to small as we have out grown the premises, we did consider keeping the Jomtien complex office as a satellite office but with this office being amidst Hotels, guest houses restaurants bars and all being closed for the foreseeable future, we decided to go with the larger office and also open a chill out bar which will also have good food on offer once the bars reopen Rest station bar will open once the government allow the sale of alcohol in Pattaya bars and restaurants.

I believe in the saying: Standing still is as good as going backwards

Pattaya Shopping Mall so sad looks like the mall is not open.

Good luck to all stay safe and let’s start looking to a new brighter Pattaya City.

For any questions or queries regarding Pattaya Jomtien properties condominiums for sale, Condominiums for rent, Houses for sale , Houses for rent basically anything real estate related or nay information required if we do not know the answer we will know someone who does know, feel free to contact me any time.

April 13th __ 15th is the traditional New year in Thailand this is the time for Songkran Festival the biggest and best new year celebrations. The Songkran festival is celebrated without any reservations in Thailand, it is the party of all parties it is one huge party like you have ever seen before the drinks flow freely every where you go you will see people enjoying and partying all inhibitions are lost and the joyful spirts rise as does the tempo and volume of the music believe it or not the worlds biggest street party brings Thailand as a nation to a standstill, if you have never experienced Thailand Biggest party mark it on your calendar for visit to Thailand in 2020.

The tradition at Songkran is to show respect to your elder’s by dabbing a little scented water on the back side of their hands or kneeling before them and pouring water on there feet, Many Thai people will visit Temples to show respect to those who have passed away, the traditional Thai Songkran festival is all about respect to your elders and the Thai Royalty,

FB IMG 1524210045948


After living in Thailand for nearly 24 years i have been lucky enough to have experienced the traditional Songkran traditions in many of the Thai provinces and Thai villages, Thai People are even more polite and courteous and defantly more generous as they are happy to share what ever they have even with complete strangers Amazing Thailand the Land Of Smiles,   Now then things change when you get to the major cities where the Songkran festivals have grown into epic street Parties Thailand Capital City Bangkok will grind to a complete stop for 2 days,

the tropical islands of Phuket and Koh Samui will celebrate for between 1 to 2 days there area varying days that different provinces will celebrate and most will celebrate for 1 or 2 days except for the area that I have laid my roots Pattaya City as you would expect with the Capital party city of the world Pattaya will celebrate ever day from the 13th to the 19 April, as a independent Pattaya property broker Real Estate Specialists Thailand R.E.S.T will be open every day of the year except 18th and 19th of April as the Street parties mean it is impossible to drive around, and to be honest all Real Estate Specialists Thailand staff enjoy a good party So Pattaya property for sale and rent can wait for a couple of days LETS PARTY ??

What to expect during Thailand’s Songkran Festivities?

Besides lots of merriment and celebrating you are going to see the biggest water fight you have ever seen, all roadways, highways and street’s become one big procession of motor vehicles of all description the main one is the Pick up trucks and wagons loaded with any container people can find to fill with water even seen people cover the bed of the pickup with thick plastic sheet and fill the entire pickup bed with water then drive around soaking as many people as possible,

FB IMG 1524097857808


Everywhere you look you will see revelers with water pistols, water cannon’s, buckets basically any thing that can be used to throw water at passing people trucks cars and don’t think you are safe on a motorbike you are just a moving target to aim water containers at,

Seriously on the streets of Pattaya nobody is exempt from a soaking even the police trying to direct traffic will get soaked

As in Thai Massages Beware of the hidden extras.

Songkran is celebrated in goodwill you are likely to get a shock or two some of the things to look out for on the Pattaya streets.

  • Ice cold water you will already be soaked if you have left your Pattaya home, but be ware as there are many people who will have large plastic drums filled with water and for extra fun will have large ice blocks in the drums, so when you get a bucket of Ice cold water over your head is a bit of a surprise,
  • Another thing people like to do is rub mentholated talc in usually mixed with water into your face if this get in your eyes it stings like crazy,
  • High powered water cannons even the Thai government have banned the use of these as they are very dangerous water jet hits you in the eye.
  • Chalk paste as with the Talc mixed with water then smeared around your face and any bare skin again stings if gets in your eyes.
  • No mercy for anyone Thais and foreigners alike are instant on blessing you with chalk paste or Talc

On the streets of Pattaya and Jomtien people like to get a reaction to freezing water, which is all good fun but choses you victims wisely, not pregnant ladies not older people and defiantly not a 6 foot 4 muscle man believe me that freezing is a massive shock to the system.

So you have decided to join the fun in Bangkok or Pattaya Now prepare yourself.

FB IMG 1524097832197

Thailand’s Songkran festivals are great fun if you know what to expect and you prepare yourself to be a willing participant, here are a few tips or you could say rules of war for Songkran.

(1If you are a smoker keep the cigarettes in a plastic bag or you will find you will be buying packets of cigarettes all day cost you a fortune LOL keep all your valuables and anything that gets damaged by water in secure plastic airtight bags, You can buy these on very street corner or seven eleven stores buy in advance

(2) Leave your gold and jewelry at home, a drunken a party goer is a easy target for opportunist thieves in the throbbing crowds,

(3)Avoid using motorcycle over exuberant revelers will see you as prim target.

(4)Your mobile device or camera not water proof buy one of the secure zip lock plastic bags from Seven Eleven, if you have to use your seek a spot that you will not get soaked ( you will find it hard it find a dry patch?)just because you are using your mobile phone does not mean someone will not put a bucket of water over your head.

(5)Keep smiling and do not loose your temper certain things may become annoying to you just remember 90 % of the people around you will be drunk tempers can flare remember Thailand the land of Smiles.

Remember it is Thai anew Year the tradition is to pour water over the hands or shoulders you can accompany this by saying Sa Wat Dee Pii Mai “Happy New Year”, or Suksan Wan Songkran “Happy Songkran Day”. Polite and courteous.


Songkran is amazing for children just think back to your childhood how good you felt with your water pistol in hand, I have a 12 year old son and to see how happy he is throwing water at people and getting water thrown at him is one of the joys of the year living in Pattaya, join in with the children buy a water pistol and not to for get your Songkran shirts loud and colorful one would never thing about wearing again

Avoiding Songkran some do;;;

Most people in Pattaya City or Bangkok will like to participate in the water festival at least once, if you would rather not join in he best thing to do is stay with in your Pattaya hotel grounds, if you are living in a Pattaya condominium, living in a Pattaya house or living in a Pattaya apartment make sure you stock up he food cupboard and drinks cabinet beforehand as once you leave your Pattaya home or Pattaya hotel you are a target.

FB IMG 1491527460840

Travel before Songkran starts.

If you are not joining in with the Songkran festival and you are planning on a road trip travel before Songkran starts otherwise will for sure find yourself stuck in grid locked traffic, the roads are dangerous at this time of year Hundreds inured and over 500 hundred dead in accidents last year so avoid driving if at all possible.

Regional Songkran Days.

Although New Year’s Day in Thailand falls on the 13th of April the Songkran celebrations may go on for a week or more. Districts and sub districts throughout Thailand will celebrate Songkran on different days, remember this when planning ahead. Our great city of Pattaya celebrates and parties the hardest from the 12th to the 19 th none stop,

FB IMG 1491527470095

I hope you have enjoyed this blog, Remember Songkran in Thailand anywhere Koh Samui Phuket Bangkok Chang Mai Pattaya is fun like you have never experienced enjoy it drink be merry and happy but please Don’t become a Songkran fatality statistic take extra special care on the roads.

Ltd opened the second Real Estate office located in the Jomtien Complex, 423/92 Moo12 Jomtien complex, Nongprue, Banglamung, Chonburi, Thailand 20150 in December 2017, convenient and easy to find Real Estate office only 5 minutes to central Pattaya City, Pattaya beach and 2 minutes’ walk to Jomtien beach. The new location is perfect to introduce potential House buyers to all the Pattaya sub districts looking to buy a central Pattaya House, buy a East Pattaya House, buy a Jomtien House, buy a Mabprachan lake House, buy a Huay Yai House, even further down the Pattaya Coast line to areas such as Baan Ampur to buy a house House, Bangsaray to but a house even Sattahip we are now servicing all the Pattaya sub districts,

Watch this space as latter in the year probably around August or September 2019 we are planning to open our third office which is not going to be in Pattaya once we have secured the premises for the new Real Estate Specialists  Thailand office we will be sending a newsletter out to inform all our existing Real Estate customers and hope fully new clients as of the new location which I am sure will be a surprise to some people.

20171202 182303

The location of the second Real Estate office has been even more successful than expected and surpassed all our targets that we set for the company and short-term goals from the Jomtien complex office, Contributing factors are easy to see with the Sales and rental team sticking to the company motto of “the property customer comes first” all staff being polite and courteous at all times generating many Property customer referrals from customers who have purchased a house or purchased a condominium ( advertising at its best and cheapest word of mouth owner recommendations) as a team we take some credit but not all,

the location is one of the best with Jomtien beach only 2 minutes’ walk, we are nestled between some illustrious and popular Jomtien businesses with neighbors in the Jomtien complex, Jomtien complex is known for being a gay friendly area with many gay friendly bars, Restaurants and cabaret shows, at one side of our Real Estate Office we have The Agate Pattaya boutique resort quality resort and Spa owned and managed by a Thai based company, to the other side the increasingly in demand T.B.M.I (Thai Blind Massage institute) if you have never tried the Thai Blind massage once in Pattaya give it a try with the masseurs Face book Thai Bind Massage  being blind they have a second since for feel and touch I am sure you will not be disappointed with the massage, Then the Zing Resort and Spa is a gay friendly resort that has recently had a major face lift and the East suits luxury Guest house opposite with clean spacious rooms and friendly staff and management. Stay in The East suites Jomtien Pattaya and you can wave to our staff in the office of Real Estate Specialists Thailand.

At the end of the road where Rest-property are located you are also directly on the Public transport route so for as little as 10 Thai Baht on the local public transport system, The Pattaya Baht bus or Songtoaw is a covered blue Pick-up truck converted and seating put in place along both sides, Just flag one down by waving your hand (remember Palm upwards is in polite in Asia) get on once you arrive at your destination say Pattaya central from Jomtien then just give the driver 10 Thai Baht.

Another thing that is relevant to our success is the Pattaya property management we offer, lets say you have bought a Pattaya house in lets say the Huay Yai district of Pattaya for a investment or Pattaya holiday home, when you return to your home country who will look after your garden keep the swimming pool clean, if you have purchased the house as a rental investment property who is going to find the rental customer for you check that the property is being looked after in your absence making sure all the utilities bills are paid up to date.

we have another client who purchased a condominium in One Tower Pratamnak hill Pattaya, his requirements are different were as he uses the unit for a bout 3 months of the year but at varying times, he gives us the dates he will use the condominium unit we block the unit for those dates, then rent the Condominium unit during the times he is not here ideal for him on his arrival back we meet him at his condominium in the One Tower Pratamnak we make sure the unit is cleaned fresh bed linen and towels so basically he walks into the unit exactly the same as if it were a hotel, the big difference is that when we meet him with the key’s on arrival there will also be his rental income from the times the condo has been rented out, he likes this scenario as the rental income pays for his Holiday in Thailand, everyone’s a winner, as I said we will tailor make the right package that fits with your requirements you need not some one telling you what you have to do.

Pattaya house rentals have always been in high demand in the central Pattaya locations mainly for the reasons of there being very few quality Pattaya housing developments in the central location and the road way infrastructure in the past made it difficult to travel to and from the Pattaya suburbs,

With all the infrastructure improvements and new highways being built this is now making the suburbs more attractive to people looking to rent Pattaya properties, for example Mabprachan lake not so long ago this journey would take you over 30 minutes to get to central Pattaya now the trip is around 10 minutes, with all the changes in the Pattaya infrastructure this has opened the gates for a more varied choice, For the budget minded people some very inexpensive properties to be found in East Pattaya,

Are you looking to buy a condominium in a pre-built established condominium building, A condominium in a new Building, Buying a condominium during the condominium construction or Buying a condominium off plan The last one buying off plan is where your really do need to find a unbiased Real Estate Agent with knowledge of all the developers of condominiums and not just a agent that will push you into buying a condominium where he gets the best commissions,

Pattaya Condominium Rentals: Pattaya condominiums rentals are a bright topic to discusswith the choice being wide and varied, would you believe me if I said you are able to rent a Pattaya city center condominium for as little as 6,000 THB per month, or a central Pattaya apartment for rent at less than 5,000 THB per month ??? well it is true for the people who are on limited funds and are not looking for a luxury condominium with swimming pool restaurants, Saunas Gymnasiums ETC ETC then yes you can find this style of Pattaya condominiums and Pattaya apartments for rent.

With such a wide choice personal condominium inspection are Paramount to get the perfect condominium rental that not only fits your budget but also meets all the requirement that you require in your Pattaya condominium rental,


Pattaya Business for sale: We hear it often here in Pattaya some one has been here for a two to three-week holiday and falls in love with the idea of running a Pattaya business and relocating to Thailand the land of smiles and many fall in the trap of going full steam ahead with a business purchase usually they go for what they think is the easy option opening a Pattaya Restaurant, Pattaya beer Bar, Pattaya massage parlor, these are the type of businesses that stand a very good chance of not only failing but draining your finances usually because good due diligence has not been done and the rose tinted spectacles take over, These businesses can and often do prosper as long as you do your full due diligence and not taking everything at face value.

Don’t take this article in the wrong context it is not a negative to owning a business in Pattaya Thailand far from it, I have been working and owning Businesses in Pattaya Koh Samui and Phuket for over 20 years and the majority of that time has been successful and all the time happy, but there is always ups and downs, happily my only down time was 2 years living and working in the tourism sector in Koh Samui Thailand this is the one and only time I have been drawn in by the Rose tinted spectacles, Like many before me and sure there will and has been many more after me who land in Koh Samui and fall in love with this idyllic tropical island, but when you actually live on a island that you can drive round in 45 minutes, i personally thinks it takes a special kind of person so as not to get island fever,

After 2 years I was on my bike so to speak and back to Pattaya we still visit Koh Sami for short vacations not for business well not for me.

At Real Estate Specialists Thailand Co,. Ltd we do not have a data base of businesses for sale as large as our data base for Pattaya houses or Pattaya condominium sales or rentals as it is very hard and time consuming the Businesses, we have for sale are all checked with all the relevant documentation in place,

We offer a service a little different as to other property agents in this part of the Pattaya real estate market, in our experience we have found that it is much better to sit down with someone find out exactly what they are looking for and what there expectations are, if we do not have the appropriate business on our Real Estate Specialists Thailand website R.E.S.T Property we then go out and sauce the business for you, once we have Business that meet your requirements and have done the initial checks for you, at this we will introduce you to the Business owner if you then decide to take it further then we assist with all the due diligence with you, if you are looking at a business that is tourist based then the best locations are Central Pattaya, Pattaya beach, Jomtien and Jomtien beach, Cozy beach, Pratamnak hill are the best locations for a business that is reliant on the tourist sector, As we looked at earlier with all the improvements to the Pattaya infrastructure Baan Ampur, Bangsaray are becoming little boom areas in is well worth looking at for a future business venture Click here for more information

How does a Pattaya Property management company work, once you have purchased your Pattaya house or Pattaya condominium, or maybe a pool villa on the beach in Pattaya, or pool villa on the beach at Bangsaray,

First steps is that we would Photograph your house or condominium recording a full inventory check of the interior and exterior, we will the advertise the Pattaya property house or condominium on our international website Link , and all the social media outlets Face book link , twitter, Linkedin, Pinterest, ETC ETC we will advertise with all the local Pattaya property agents and Real Estate Companies in the area also on many third party international websites,

Pattaya Legal services; Real estate specialist’s Thailand Co,. Ltd do not profess to be certifiedLawyers or solicitors, if you are in need of a Pattaya Lawyer or Pattaya solicitor with our experience in Thailand we will be able to recommend solicitors or lawyers who will act diligently on your behalf no matter what your legal requirements are,

As for Pattaya property transfer and contractual writing we do offer this service and we do welcome our clients to have any of the property contracts checked by a certified Lawyer or solicitor,

we are very adept at transferring properties at the Pattaya and office acting diligently on behalf of the Pattaya property seller or the Pattaya property buyer, we have transferred many condominiums at the land office with no complications same with Pattaya house transfers, we may offer references if you wish us to handle the sale of a Pattaya house or the purchase of a Pattaya house, House transfers or Condominium transfers are quite a simple process in Thailand unlike in the western world very little red Tape,

Over the years we have compiled a A-Z check list so we give to the Pattaya property buyer a easy break down of what documentation is required and also for the Pattaya property seller.

Real Estate Specialists Thailand Co Ltd are one of the few Pattaya property agents that actual put the client’s interest first, we do not focus on the property fees that we receive for our services we concentrate on putting the buyer and sellers of Pattaya property needs first.

We are so transparent in the way we do our Pattaya property transactions may times we actually pick the buyer and seller up together take to the land office for the property transfer, and to be honest it is a nice feeling to know we have acted diligently for the Property Buyer and property seller, to see the seller happy with is full payment for the transaction in his hands and the Buyer happy to have all the legal documentation for proof of Pattaya property purchase IE Chanot(Land title deed , house registry book.

Pattaya Property Insurance; As above with the legal services above Real Estate Specialists Co,. Ltd are not a property insurance Brokers but we can aim you in the direction of may of the property or medical insurance brokers in the area, many people for get about insurance but it is a important this to have especially if you have purchased a Pattaya property for generating a rental income, Thailand is the same as the western world good insurance cover for personal medical insurance or property insurance is available at reasonable rates

Pattaya Car Hire; We highly recommend using a reputable car rental company that covers all their vehicles with first class insurance,

If you are not used to driving on the roads in Pattaya I would personally suggest that you get around using the public transport system, The Pattaya public transport system is some of the best in the world with the local Baht Busses 10THB takes you anywhere on the route or you may book private taxi Grab Taxi is becoming very popular way of getting around Pattaya City,

For the brave people there are Taxi bikes on every corner you turn on the Pattaya City Streets,

Pattaya Bike Rental: This is one we highly recommend against, the accident rate very high on the Pattaya roads and if you are not a experienced Bike rider even experienced riders are taking a chance on The Pattaya city roads, a great amount of time the bikes are uninsured and obviously your medical insurance very rarely covers you for motorbike accidents, Medical care is not cheap in Thailand so you could end up with a sizable Hospital Bill.

Think very carefully before renting a bike to get around Pattaya, and if you do not have a valid Bike license don’t do it.

Environmentally  Friendly Pattaya

Interesting read from Thailand’s Nation newspaper regarding the use of Plastic in hotels, as a long-term resident of Pattaya I for one hope that Pattaya will follow suite with this idea, with so many new tourists flooding Pattaya especially from the Asian countries including China,

With all the large condominium projects being completed and transferred to new buyers the population of Pattaya is drastically increasing which is very good for the Pattaya Real Estate Market but the side effects will increase the use of plastic which is already a major problem and if not controlled with similar ideas like this one in Phuket will cause major environmental issues in the Future for Pattaya. The two photos below are take by myself  these two beach are under 20 minutes drive from Cental Pattaya sight to be seen beaches with no plasic waste or derbris of any kind, lets keep them this way and try to clean the beaches closer to Pattaya city to the same standard

b2ap3_thumbnail_20160919_104726.jpg b2ap3_thumbnail_2015-06-27_0937.png

I think the majority of Pattaya property owners Houses, villas or Condominiums would embrace a cleaner more environmentally friendly Pattaya, which will have a roll-on effect to encourage more tourists to visit this beautiful Pattaya city on the coast, Pattaya hotels, Real Estate and businesses will flourish, the local Thai people will have a better standard of living, all in all a green environmentally friendly Pattaya would benefit everyone in the area.  


The Nation News Paper  

All members of the Phuket Hotels Association have jointly committed to eliminate plastic water bottles and drinking straws from rooms by 2019 as part of an effort to ensure a sustainable future for Phuket, said association president Anthony Lark.

The association has also provided information to its hotel members about companies that provide alternatives to plastics for food storage, waste bags and guest amenities. 

Lark said the association aims to ensure a sustainable short-term and long-term tourism environment in Phuket by encouraging its member hotels to take action and adopt sustainable, none plastic solutions amenities and services to their guests.

“We’ve tracked the single use plastic in place at our hotels and provided the hotel owners and management with cost effective solutions to switch from plastics to sustainable alternatives. We’ve worked closely with the government and support the efforts of Thai schools and colleges to slowly but surely make changes. We will also be recognizing those hotels that make the most progress,” he added.

Lark said that the growing numbers of tourists on the island actually helps make the alternatives more economically viable. For instance, the change from using plastic water bottles to reusable glass actually saves the hotels money and this has been demonstrated at many of members’ hotels that have already made the switch.

Phuket Hotels Association recently announced a new annual international forum called PHIST (Phuket Hotels for Islands Sustaining Tourism), which will hold its first event on the island in September to support the region's hospitality industry in its fight for a sustainable future. 

The PHIST Forum 2018 will take place on September 24th at the JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa and is coorganised by C9 Hotelworks and Greenview, respected consultants to the regional hospitality industry. The innovative ecofocused event will bring together some of Southeast Asia’s key tourism and hospitality stakeholders – particularly those operating in island destinations – to explore solutions to the region’s most pressing environmental issues.

“Island tourism in Southeast Asia is at a critical juncture; we simply cannot continue overlooking the impacts,” said Eric Ricaurte, founder and CEO of Greenview in an association media release trumpeting the event.

“Risks are real and sustainability must be the driving force behind future growth. But how do we change and adapt to the challenges we face, then catalyse solutions across the region? Education is the key and PHIST will create a forum for positive action.”

The PHIST program will feature a series of expert panels, themed talks, technical workshops and roundtable discussions covering topics such as sustainable operations, destination development, and overtourism. The event is expecting 500 delegates from around the Asia region. All the sessions will be free to attend.

Working together is essential for the industry’s longterm survival, said Bill Barnett, managing director of C9 Hotelworks.

“Environmental destruction is a crisis without borders and the hospitality industry needs to collaborate, find answers, and come up with a regional action plan,” he said. “We can literally use PHIST to fight for our sustainable survival.”

In line with the organisation’s solutions-oriented approach, the Phuket Hotels Association will use PHIST 2018 as an opportunity to showcase its “People. Planet. Phuket” campaign, which aims to educate local island communities and visitors about the importance of the Three Rs – Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.

The campaign brings together over 70 member hotels in an education initiative targeting Phuket’s schools, designed to promote environmental protection and support. The community-based programme uses specially created anime characters, including “The Phist”, a school teacher-turned-superhero who fights and defeats polluting enemies like plastic straws, plastic bottles and oil waste in the ocean.

PHIST is supported by major tourism organisations, including the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT), Thailand Convention and Events Bureau (TCEB), and the American Chamber of Commerce (AMCHAM) and AustralianThai Chamber of Commerce (AUSTCHAM). Phuket Governor Norrapat Plodthong will open the event.

Lark added that one of the Phuket Hotels Association’s most important tasks is to create a forum for the hotel members to gain access to information on ways to reduce their use of plastics.

“This is, of course, a global issue and we all decided that we wanted Phuket to take the initiative to address these issues with education and actionable strategies that really make a difference. Every tropical island faces the same issues as Phuket and now is the time to start a serious effort to address this in Southeast Asia,” said Lark.

“When the other destinations see the efforts we make to bring together the community, we hope it will raise awareness throughout the region. The PHIST event has a strong regional message and we have already received a lot of interest from islands throughout the Asean bloc interested in the discussion and working towards real actionable solutions and instilling best sustainable practices.

“And yes, every small step we all take makes a difference for Phuket and benefits all those who visit our beautiful Island,” Lark concluded.


I hope you enjoyed this article and feel the need to change how we think regarding Plastic not only plastic but all none degradable products, if we visit the local Pattaya Makro super markets you do not get plastic carrier bags for your shopping Does this cause any shoppers any distress or hardship NO it does not we all manage very easily to get our shopping to our Pattaya house or Condominium even businesses without hardship.

As a Real Estate Company R.E.S.T based here in Jomtien Pattaya (Real Estate Specialists Thailand Co,. Ltd)   we believe that helping the environment of Pattaya will benefit us all, and as a Father I wish for a more environmental friendly Pattaya for my son to grow up in.

Always interested to interact with people on all aspects of Thailand and especially Pattaya we can never stop learning and talking discussing can be very educational and fun

Jomtien beach

Jomtien beach Thailand






Established Condominiums with unobstructed Ocean views for sale located on Jomtien beach this one is Metro Jomtien 42 story high rise building at the Southern tip of Jomtien beach.



As all good Thailand beach guides will tell you Jomtien has a 6 kilometer long straight stretch of a sandy coast line with much improved sidewalks for the pleasant early morning or sunset walks from your condominium or house, Jomtien beach is much quieter area than the local rowdy neighbor J to the north of Pattaya beach and the nightlife of walking street.

Saying that Jomtien beach still has plenty to offer with the clean beach and some of the finest international standard restaurant’s, as most expats and people who have had the pleasure of visiting Jomtien beach will tell you it is a must to try the exotic street food that Thailand is renowned for inexpensive and extremely tasty, Thai soups such as Tom Yum Gung, Barbecue fish, crab and prawns Thai salads all enjoyed at the side of the beach road or lazing on the ample deck chairs on Jomtien beach.


R.E.S.T Plenty of nightlife to take in with Soi (road) 3,4,5, and 6 offering many bear bars with cafes, bistros Pizza, even a restaurant Beerfest  that brews its own beer on site, also many open air beer bars in the Rompho market beer bar,

The Jomtien complex is the gay friendly area Located of Thappyaya road with many restaurant’s Bars cafes & Bistros, there is also a very relaxed and entertaining  cabaret show called The Venue which also caters to the straight people who wish to visit in fact the entire complex is very friendly to all,

You do not have to be gay to enjoy the glitz and glam of the gay scene, Dongtan beach at the start of Jomtien beach is also known as the gay friendly beach with gay friendly bars and cafes.

There is a wide range of accommodation to be found along Jomtien beach, Back packers hostels, bed and breakfast guest houses, Clean affordable rooms can be found  for as little as 500 thb for two people per night,

For the people who require that extra bit of luxury on holiday then there are ample luxury hotels to choose from, The Rabbit resort, Birds & the bees resort, The Jomtien Palm beach resort, Sugar hut, my particular favorite D Varee with the Sky lounge.

There are also ample villas and houses or private condominiums for rental, looking for a luxury villa for short term or long term rentals look no further that View Tallay Villas, Jomtien Park Villas, and the ultra-modern Palm Oasis offering villas with roof top gardens and roof top Jacuzzis.
