Photographer's Note

Crazy as it may seem, I some how had this naive idea that Thailand was nothing but peaceful,white sandy beaches, turqoise waters, coconut filled palm trees, and fascinating temples. Although I was not surprised on many of these points, what I was surprised by was the level of commercialism in Pattaya. Don't get me wrong, I had a fantastic holiday and enjoyed the sites and sounds wherever we went, but it was an eye-opener to see the number of bars (nothing wrong with that!) "go-go" clubs and the multitude of neon signage which flooded the area around Pattay beach.
I think this photo provides a good visual description of what I am talking about.
