A really old picture of Pattaya - no date info for this one but my guess would be early last century
I do not know the date of this one……..but the photo was taken a while back!
The area of Pattaya Beach now in front of Walking Street - This beach area has long dissapeared below the encrouchment of buiildings on the west side of Walking Street
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.
