pictures not showing ?

Noticed that too. Reported my post to bring it to the attention of the mods. Either they fixed the problem, or it fixed itself as pics in posts are showing once again.

Another long time Pattaya bar, Buffalo Bar is heading into the dustbin of history. Don't think we can blame it in on the pandemic though as the bar's decline predated the China virus.

Construction update on Tree Town's Pattaya Beach Club.

Not sure what this hole in the floor will be. Fountain maybe?

Never noticed before, but most, if not all the bars on the south facing side of Tree Town have 2nd floor seating.

Re Buffalo bar

It seems its "land value" has finally exceeded its "going concern" value.

Those of us who know it will be aware it was like the frkn Tardis when you went through that tiny frontage. Pretty huge old area inside.

That is 2nd hand gossip I have to say but it does make sense.

Soi Pothole is getting another temporary repair.

Missed seeing this on yesterday's trek through Tree Town, but they're working again on the structure that has sat unfinished for years.

They've been working for a couple of years on trying to solve the flooding on the road parallel to the railroad. Last year was digging a deeper channel on the east side of the road and installing more pumps.
P5210001.jpg

That hasn't worked, so now they're digging out the ground cover on the other side of the road.
P5210005.jpg

And knocking holes in the crash barrier at the low spots to allow the flood water to drain on both sides of the road.

And over at the Soi 9 police station, the latest in car accessories on display.

I think the railway line work is for the high speed rail - not a fix for a fix for a fix of the fix for the clusterfuk work done in the first place ...

You are correct. Saw the news article yesterday. Looks like I'll have another project to take photos of, although I doubt it'll be as interesting as the multi-year project to construct the Sukhumvit underpass.

High speed rail project construction in Chonburi linked to three major airports expected to start this October

The old Batman Disco is always an interesting site to photograph.

Construction progress on the skateboard/recreation area under the 3rd Rd flyover.

Once again 3rd Rd is a mess with digging going on to bury utilities. I don't think the Thais will ever catch on to the idea of digging up a road once to bury utilities with enough conduit placed for future use.

One of my favourite bars many years ago, thinking about the company I left there with over the years brings a big smile to my face!

I've been keeping my eyes open for more of these machines and until today haven't seen one. Surprised by that as I think they would be a nice money maker. Here's the one I saw today.

Gas station just north of Klang on Sukhumvit.

Another one for you. This one on Nern Plub Wan. Although you're going have to pay double for the herbal supplement.

And as long as I was out that way, got a shot of the Chinese temple they've been work on since 2018.P6240010.jpg

You can't see because of the shadows, but I there was a guy hunched down below the concrete arch as the heavy equipment above was banging away on the concrete cross piece.

And here he is, barefoot and barehands, and no hardhat.

Yep. The days that Dan Cheeseman and Bryan Flowers pretend that they remember but never experienced!

Back in the day it was in the outback. It was an adventure to get to. It was mainly expats but without the clique that TQ had. Cum one Cum all.

Yes, I hadn't ever crossed 3rd road for many years of travel, then Graham (Fontoc) RIP, took me on a tour in his truck to all the expat hangouts, Gentlemens clubs etc. A big eye opener at the Time.

The new playground for young and old adults under the 3rd Rd flyover is done. Completely enclosed in chicken wire so children can safely leave their parents to play without having to worry about them running out into traffic.

Sure hope they don't intend to mix stationary exercise equipment in the same area as football.:default_biggrin:

good laugh on both pics to start my weekend. I’m sure BTT I arrive back to Patts, they’ll have fixed & repaired Soi Pothole a couple more times…hopefully it won’t be a full blow-up job or under water

Nice landscaping job at the Edge. Too bad the overhead utility lines ruin the view.

…isn’t that part of the charm/look of Thailand, lol
