Pattaya Talk Forum
PattayaTalk.com is the oldest of the main Pattaya Forums. It also has the third most users with over 20,000
registered members. However these figures are a little deceptive as actual user numbers are likely to be much
lower. This is because the registered members are the total over a few years and many of those people have left or
are no longer active on the board.
Pattaya Addicts and Pattaya
Secrets have now overtaken it in terms of membership.
PattayaTalk.com is owned and run by the management/owners of the FLB Bar in Walking Street Pattaya. As you would expect from a bar owned forum it is heavily
biased to that establishment. In fairness this has not really been detrimental as it is a nice board with over
750,000 posts from members accumulated over the years. The owner of the FLB Bar and this forum is well liked and
respected in the Pattaya Bar Owners community.
It has always been a reasonably pleasant place to converse but in late 2006 it became somewhat embroiled in the
PattayaSecrets vs Pattaya-Chat saga which is covered elsewhere. This has
calmed down now but always seems to simmer below the surface.
In my opinion still a good board if you are looking for a wealth of information about Pattaya but not
necessarily so if you are looking to make new friends as its hard core members are very loyal and somewhat a
clique. New posters can quickly find themselves on the wrong end of the childish UTFSE responses if they ask a
question that has been covered before.
It has a really useful Wiki Section which can be found here Pattaya Wiki. In addition it was able in the past, due to its previous ascendancy, to
negotiate good hotel discounts etc for its members. Those discounts are still available its affiliated
information website at Pattayapages.com - again don't expect impartiality, this site too is heavily geared to
promoting the FLB Bar.
