Our happy retirement in a Thai sex haven

A group of British retirees explain why they feel young at heart in peaceful Pattaya, which has more to it than its seedy reputation.

Graham and Felicity Smith, 70 and 69, and Wendy and John Khan, 64 and 60, say that beyond the tourist traps is a tolerant and peaceful community no more debauched than others.

"In other countries there’s sex for sale but it’s just hidden," says Graham. "Here, it’s not. It’s totally different to how it’s portrayed."
