There isn't a great deal of much going on in this picture but that's one of the things I like about it. It was taken during dinner at one of my favourite relaxing spots, the 'Pattaya Beer Garden' just after sun-down... the perfect time to enjoy the atmosphere there. The heat of the day is less intense at this time but plenty hot enough so that you can wear shorts and a t-shirt comfortably.
There's soft music playing in the background, there's the sounds of the sea and the surf breaking against the stilts that support the restaurant. In the distance you can faintly hear the madness of Walking Street just starting up for the night. In the restaurant itself there is a healthy amount of custom and there are conversations and laughter all around. This place is a very good place either to relax and unwind, or as a place to start the night off before heading into the more hectic places that the Pattaya nightlife has to offer!
The picture is pointing in a northward direction and you can just see Naklua in the distance. The row of white lights that you can see, running from the centre of the picture to the right, are the lights that run along beach road. If you go for a stroll there at this time of night, you'll probably see all sorts of shenanigans!
At this time of day/early evening, there are still a few people speeding around on jet-skis and, if you have young children with you, they will be kept entertained by this. It's a good idea to remember to take your camera with you if you decide to pay this place a visit as you're sure to get plenty of opportunities to take some pictures worthy of your photo album.
The next Beach Road gallery picture is related to this one and was taken looking in the opposite direction.
