Pattaya, Thailand


This is the Redemptorist Church in Pattaya, the only Thai-style Catholic church in Thailand, and also the prettiest I’ve ever seen. The front and back are covered with porcelain and mirror tiles, there are even plates and bowls, giving it a very distinct look. Well, actually, it uses many elements that make me love Thai architecture. This was our favorite place to hold student leadership training and community service activities. It was really hard to take a full shot because it is in surrounded by trees and other buildings within a compound that is now part of Ray Resort, which is offers accommodations and facilities for conventions, workshops, and training.

This is the notorious Walking Street of Pattaya, a coastal city about a couple of hours by bus or car from Bangkok. It is arguably the reason why Pattaya is often referred to as Thailand’s “Sin City” and “Sodom-by-the-Sea.” But Pattaya has many sides, and I will show this for the next few days.
