You should avoid Pattaya Beach Road for the rest of this week. Traffic's almost at a stand still as they erect the stages for this weekends music festival.
The new highway from central Pattaya to the Regent's School (Highway 36) and beyond was scheduled to open last Sunday but has now slipped to opening this month. The good news is City Hall workers were removing barriers on the highway this morning at the Naklua Intersection. When it finally openes it can only be good news for Pattaya. It bings Bangkok, the AIrport and golf clubs to the north of Pattaya, 20 minutes closer to the city. In fact golf clubs like Laem Chabang and Burapha will be easier to get to than Phoenix. No a bad thing I say.
