Soi 4 and Soi 5
away from Soi 3 towards Soi 4 the bars become more scattered.
After Soi 5 they stop until you get near Soi 6. The Soi 6
walking tour will be completed in September 2008. There is a
small beer bar complex between Soi 4 and Soi 5. The best bar in
this complex is U Too You bar near Soi 5.
a large and modern hospital in Soi 4. You can see it in the
centre of the below photo behind the trees with the red bricks.
There is a very good dental clinic in this hospital.

Other than the bars on the corner there
is not much in Soi 5.
A little beyond Soi 5 on the other
side of Second Road is Alcazar. This is another ladyboy show
establishment. At night the area around Alcazar is packed with
big tour busses. They bring in many people on package tours.
Sometime you will see them all sitting in a bar on the other
side of the road. They look so out of place that it is funny. I

In the car park for Alcazar you can find
this Thai eating place.
After all the walking on this day I
needed a beer so I headied back to the Soi 3 beer bar complex
to a bar called Cherry Bar. It is a good place for a beer or
two. I sat there watching the ladies getting ready for work for
the night and couldn't not take a photo. They didn't know I
took the photo. You'll see the ladies putting on their makeup
in the bar quite often if you are early enough.
More offerings to Buddha. Somethimes it is
hard not to take some food as it can look good. If you look at
some of the shrines in the bar you will see that they have toys
on them. If you look at the figurines in the shrine they will
also be child-like.
That concludes this walking tour of Second Road. I hope that
you have gained something from it. This area is more than
worthy for a visit while you are in Pattaya. If nothing else go
to this area for a soapy massage.
