  3. I think the rescuers should get priority with any praise. Had they been relying on the ‘Lord’ they may have been in for a long wait. Sent from my iPhone using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

    Has the Darkside lost it’s sparkle?

    For me the ‘sparkle’ was having some nice (and some not so nice) bars/restaurants. A place where you could get to know people, be it the girls or expats. Yes like everywhere else in the world there are people there that you also prefer to avoid. Also like the fact that you are not that far away the hustle and bustle or Pattaya should you feel the need. I see myself retiring to Thailand within the next few years and see the Darkside as a possible future home. Sent from my iPhone using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

    Has the Darkside lost it’s sparkle?

    In most respects Europe (including the UK) is indeed much better than here. Having just returned from the UK I was mortified by the high prices in supermarkets here, and the appalling lack of choice. It really is terrible: like living post-war. Income tax in Europe is a big downside though. I think what’s better or worse is very subjective and down to individual circumstances/expectations. Personally, six months in the UK and six months in Thailand would be the ideal situation. Sent from my iPhone using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

    It did for me at one time, I have some fond memories from there. Hope to be able to make some more too. Sent from my iPhone using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app

    I did hear that a Shopping Mall is being built there soon. Of course Pattaya needs another one. Sent from my iPhone using Thaivisa Connect
  12. I’ve been visiting Thailand since 2004 and over that time I have done the bright lights of central Pattaya and the other delights on offer. As time went on I found that the Darkside, particularly lake Mabprachan, was a nicer place to spend my time. My last visit was in 2014, I did notice that the lake has changed then, the bars seemed to be struggling, no doubt the poor exchanged rate (even worse now) didn’t help their cause given the amount of expats there. However, I enjoyed a good few nights around the lake and particularly liked the Venue bar. From what I hear, the Venue has closed due to the new motorway and the lake is pretty much dead. I’d be interested in hearing what peoples options are about Lake Mabprachan as it is today. I’m due to come over in July and wondering whether to stay around the lake or give it a miss. If anyone has any pictures of the new road near the old Venue bar then that would be much appreciated. Sent from my iPhone using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
