The cost's for farang to fish is 1,500 baht including rod, for Thais only 300 baht. Bait ฿40/Kilo, you will need at least 1kg per hour of fishing.

Beach volleyball has become a very popular activity in Pattaya in the past few years with International tourist and local Thai's, there are sometimes organized tournaments for the more professional players.    

Beach Volleyball courts are at Jomtien Beach Road opposite the night market and opposite Pattaya Park Jomtien.

Game of play, the ball may touch any part of the body (except during the serve, when only the hand or arm may make contact), but must be hit, not caught or thrown. During a hit, a player may only make contact with the ball one time.

With its origins in Hawaii and California, beach volleyball is strongly associated with a casual, beach centric lifestyle. As it developed nearly parallel with modern surfing, beach volleyball culture shares some similarities with surf culture. The beach bum archetype is one such example.

Fashion often extends from the clothing worn during play, like the bikini or board-shorts. And much like surfers, beach volleyball players are at the mercy of the weather; patterns of play often develop based on weather conditions like sun and wind.
