Hey top cats! So how’s 2018 treating you so far?
Still swearing by the resolutions… …or making new ones everyday?
Monttra, Pattaya, Thailand
I thought of starting the first blog post of 2018 with a unique and must-have experience for all the newly-wed couples (or the love birds) out there looking for a sanctuary to… just be.
Oxymoron, yes… I’m a fan!
Now, the reason R and I chose to stay here was because it’s a good 30 minute drive from the city (= serenity) plus it is made on a cliff top, has a private beach and an infinity pool.
Need I say more?
Staying at Monttra was just too blissful and R & I couldn’t have asked for more ( especially after the kind of wedding we had in Dusit Thani, Pattaya : blog post coming soon)! The service and warmth was incredible. Infact, after about a week of wedding frenzy, R and I properly sat down for breakfast only at Monttra.
The brekkie at Monttra will always be special because it was escorted with fresh sea air from the beach, Christmas carols playing in the background, sound of the ocean waves complimenting the classic carols and the welcoming staff generously feeding us with all that we asked for.
Top 3 Things to Do when in Pattaya
Other than the shady stuff people unnecessarily go cuckoo cuckoo over, there’s lots to experience in Pattaya! R and I made our (minimoon) trip all about “Adventure” and “Chillin’ like a total villain” post wedding. So here’s a bunch of mad (+ decent ) stuff you could do when in Pattaya.
1. Cuddle with the Tigers in Tiger Park
Also, R and I feel these tigers are sedated so that they don’t attack visitors (although it doesn’t help all that much). But all in all, a fun experience!
2. Skydive at Thai Sky Adventures
I can’t wait to Skydive again and this time around, in DUBAI!!! Yikessss!
3. Bungy Jumping at Pattaya Bungy Jump
If you feel Skydiving is the scariest adventure ever, then you’re highly mistaken! It’s not, ‘cos Bungy Jumping is!!! Imagine your feet, just your feet being tied down by a bunch of ropes and the person standing behind you compelling you to jump, just jump from a 60 metre high platform with nothing to hold onto. I can’t believe it was my second time around doing this stupid shit. One genuinely can’t be in a right frame of mind to do this. Gosh! What an experience though. Can’t wait for round 3 and this time around, WITH R!
I’m glad R and I made our little staycation all about food (a big fat blog post coming soon), adventure and a luxury boutique resort experience.
DID YOU KNOW?
Pattaya is referred to as a city of thousands beer bar. There are a little over 2000 beer bars scattered all across the city. This means that if you were to visit one bar everyday, it would take you 5 years and 4 months to visit them all!
Now that’s A LOT of beer bars! Gosh!
