Here comes the “HONDA LPGA THAILAND 2018” and we know you all have been waiting for it! Some of you are even planning to see the competition at the course!
But besides enjoying thrilling swings, you should never miss visiting these cool spots nearby as well! Ready to rock Pattaya with me already? Hop in! Go, go, go!!!
FROST MAGICAL ICE OF SIAM
Looking for a cool check-in spot? “Frost Magical Ice of Siam” is the one! Known to be the biggest ice city in Asia, this place is located just in the heart of Pattaya. The inside fills with many gigantic amazing ice sculptures telling stories about Thai literature, important places in Thailand, and the ways of living of the Siam.
To rumble around this place, you’ll get to face a temperature of -10 degrees Celcius. And if that is too tiring for you, you can stop by at an ice bar to get some signature soft drink as well. So, if you wanna sneak away from Thai heat and bring your family to experience coldness in Thailand, don’t worry. “Frost Magical Ice of Siam” has freeze-proof jackets prepared for you and everyone. Just get your little Elsa in your family ready, and let’s go!
If you happen to be a tea or coffee lover who’s looking for a minimal-styled cafe with hipster ambience to chill with friends and family on an upcoming vacation, don’t miss “Dripoly.” It’s located on South Pattaya Road in The Commons project. Not only is Dripoly uniquely and charmingly decorated with polygons to perfect every photo snap of yours, but it also is full of delicious desserts, drinks, and especially dishes which you would relish its extreme richness of Thai tastes.
The must-try menu at Dripoly is Dripoly Classic Cake. It’s a lovely chocolate cake which hides 6 layers of deliciousness inside: chocolate feuilletine, chocolate cake, bailey cream, vanilla mousse, chocolate decoration, and hot chocolate sauce. And imagine it served with crumble and vanilla ice cream. Just pour little hot chocolate sauce on top… and there you go — a heaven in a spoon!
