5. The Beach in Pattaya
Ah, the beach. Some pretty crazy and amazing things can happen there! This part of our trip was really fun and relaxing. We had meetings in the morning and evening, and several hours of free time each afternoon. The place we stayed was right across the street from the beach, which was quite fun. We could also head into town for shopping and good food, as well as a movie theatre (we watched Chronicles of Narnia���excellent movie about an INCREDIBLE story���go see it!). We also had a fun day in the middle of the week where we took a boat ride to an island and had fun swimming, snorkeling, jet skiing and so on. Random fun: I saw a sea turtle; we built a bamboo raft on the island; I got an hour foot massage for $5!
