Petes return to Pattaya, Thailand
After a lot of begging to get a mer week off from work I decided it was time to get back to one of most fun places on earth, Pattaya, Thailand! It had been about 2 years since my last trip there and I had been hanging to get back there again since. Anyone who does not know about Pattaya should just check out some videos on Youtube or Google it and you will soon find out what its all about. There are lots of other things to do in the area though of course also. I spent most of the time with my 2 DSLR's with me but found it tooo hot to be putting in much effort to make many great shots.Looking down on Pattaya city at night from the look out.
Also visited many great temples, shrines, shopping malls etc. to get the days out of the way to make way for the nights. The night is what its all about here. Every night is like a Friday night just after knocking off work for a long holiday weekend. You only need walk a few meters in any direction in Pattaya to find some kind of party going on, and your more than welcome to come join the fun (as long as you have some money of course) Everywhere you go around town you are greeted with calls of "Sexy man! where you going?", "Massage?" or just "Welcome!" Most nights were spent at various beer bars drinking cheap Chang beers having a laugh and watching the local talent.
I went this trip with a mate Sami who lives down in Chiba, he met me there a day after I arrived. We found a great tour guide named Mr Sanga who took us around to many great spots along the coast. On great place north of Pattaya had thousands of wild monkeys running wild all over the place. Wild monkeys run this part of town

An Australian photographer living on beautiful Okinawa island. I specialize in wedding photography, and shoot literally hundreds of weddings each year with my company Watabe Wedding. But I love to shoot a wide variety of subjects and also love teaching photography. I'm quite a gadget geek love to get the latest tech toys. When I'm not shooting weddings you'll find me practicing my craft in other ways, photographing my kids, Okinawa's amazing seascapes or listening to various photography podcasts.
