East Pattaya.(The Dark Side)

East Pattaya or "the darkside" as it is known to the expat community, probably referring to the days when there were no street lights, is largely off the beaten tracks for most tourists even though it now has a thriving bar scene. there are a few and growing number of guesthouses offering cheaper accomodation to those who are prepared to travel into town or to the beach. This would suit frequent visitors to Pattaya who maybe want a change of scenery in Pattaya yet still want access to the tourist areas when required.
