Wow! How Pattaya has changed! February 22, 2016March 18, 2021 Travel Hub Pictures of Pattaya from the last 100 years Looking down to Pattaya Bay from Big Buddha Hill. Horses taking it easier on Beach Road Pattaya I do not know the date of this one……..but the photo was taken a while back! Walking Street would be on the left-hand side in this photo. This part of the beach will now be hard to find as it has been encroached upon by many of the business on the eastern side of Walking Street. Many restaurants and nightclubs and extended construction out into the sea on piers and jetties. Walking Street was taking its place to be the center of Pattaya’s nightlife back in the 70’s Some pioneering backpackers heading to their accommodation on Walking Street The road from the Dolphin Circle roundabout to Beach Road in 1966. The Amari Hotel is now situated on the right. The temple center in this photo is Wat Chai Mongkron. And to the front right is the start of Walking Street. Retro 70’s Jet skis. Beach Road Big Buddha Temple You will find a few more speed boats bobbing about in Pattaya Bay today The traditional way of celebrating Songkran. Did the horses move to Hua Hin? The beach looked more attractive back then! Somewhere in Pattaya…….. Towards the southern end of Walking Street.
