There are some important things you need to know about Pattaya. There are some things you absolutely should take with you to Pattaya, and there are some items which you should leave at home.
As a tourist visiting Pattaya for the first time you need to acquire some information. Like things you should and should not do in Pattaya, how to stay safe in Pattaya, what is dangerous in Pattaya. And of course, all the best things to do in Pattaya.
I hope I got your attention, because I’m going to cover a very important “what you need to know before visiting Pattaya” topic once again.
So, I titled this post “Fools Gold in Pattaya” because I think it’s quite catchy and it grabs your attention. After all, there are many things which grab your attention in Pattaya. I might also have titled it “A Fool and his Gold in Pattaya” because that is essentially the subject I’m talking about.
You’re a Fool if You Take Your gold to Pattaya
There you go, I said it straight out, just like that. So that’s a bit blunt, but it is one of the most important pieces of advice I would give anybody visiting Pattaya for the first time.
There’s a good reason I’m rambling on about “things you need to know about Pattaya” without yet coming to the point. That’s because I want this post to be found by visitors looking for “important facts and information before taking a vacation in Pattaya”.
Did I Grab Your Attention ?
Okay then, now I will get to the point. You’re a fool if you bring your gold to Pattaya for the very simple reason you might just lose it.
Someone grabbing your gold is certainly going to grab your attention, but let’s hope I grabbed your attention first. Someone “grabbing your gold” or any other valuable you take out on the street in Pattaya is absolutely what I want to bring to your attention.
Street Robbery and Muggings in Pattaya
Pattaya is like any other popular tourist destination in the world, it’s full of rich “wide eyed” tourists. Unsuspecting, unknowing, tourists commonly fall victim to opportunist thieves who are always ready and waiting to grab a fools gold.
I first posted an article about street robbery in Pattaya after an attempted robbery on myself. Being robbed or mugged on the street is not a pleasant experience. It is certainly not going to be one of your best experiences in Pattaya, just ask my wife, my mother or my niece.
A Lesson Never Learned
Living in Pattaya, I hear local news every day, I know exactly what’s going on in Pattaya. And it’s a sad fact there are still many reports of tourists having there gold or valuables snatched. I always feel sorry for the victims but I also think they should know better, or might I say they should be better informed.
1 Thing You Need to Know About Pattaya
Somewhere in Pattaya there’s a guy, maybe 2 guys casually riding round on a motorcycle. They’re looking for a fools gold, worn by a tourist who doesn’t know what’s going on in Pattaya. It has to be said, it’s probably one the easiest ways to make money in Pattaya. In contrast if you’re the victim you probably just had the most unforgettable experience you will ever have in Pattaya.
The best way to look after your gold on holiday in Pattaya is to leave it at home.
