    Gay Maps Of Pattaya

    Here's a list of the links to the various gay areas of Pattaya, Jomtien and Hua Hin. A new feature allows the zoom level, and type of map to be included in the link. This is useful for the Jomtien Complex, for example, where the Google map doesn't include the inside roads, and it is necessary to zoom out a bit to include all the places.

    These maps should be very useful for any traveler here, can I ask why the Seven11's are all indicated as well?

    Are these men who love men supermarkets?

    Re: Gay Maps Of Pattaya

    Thanks for the effort on these maps Pattaya Place. I like the Google Map concept very much, and I suspect updating the maps (which is important ... they change names, they pop up unexpectedly, they go belly up just as unexpectedly) is probably easier to do on the fly than if the map is a JPG or other image format.

    One small nitpick: I notice that you've designated most of the gay bars as either 'GoGo Bar' or 'Beer Bar'. I think the latter should be changed to 'Host Bar' ... a better description as well as being better known.
    The term 'Beer Bar' is used for those large bar centres where they are mostly out of doors though covered from the rain by some individual or shared roof. There are lots of 'Beer Bars' in Bangkok, Pattaya, and Patong, though (arguably) 95% of them are straight, not gay. There are no beer bars in Hua Hin.
    Just another reason why I love living in Thailand

    If their is a googlemaps plugin why can't the owner of this sight use it and save us all the trouble of having to go to other sights? Surely its in his own interest to make SGT the one-stop-shop for gay Thailand????????????

    Keeping gay venue maps up to date is a huge job. It means quite regularly having to check up the status of all the bars in all the main gay places in Thailand.
    Many websites have tried keeping maps up to date ... almost all have a great deal of trouble actually accomplishing that.
    I don't think the Admin of Sawatdee is in any way interested in a daunting task such as that ... and I don't blame him.

    Thanks for this - I think you're right. I'll change these entries en-masse to 'Host Bar' - it'll take a little while as I need to write a bot to update multiple wiki entries at the same time.

    It is a big job alright - I hope that by using a Wiki that anyone can edit, and an easy to use map interface, it'll be easier to keep up to date as a group effort rather than having a bottleneck of a single editor.

    Good question! I think they can be useful as landmarks to orient yourself in a new locations. PP is very open at the moment, so any type of place can be added. However if it starts to get cluttered, I'll add filters on the map to specify 'Gay Venue Only' or 'Gay Interest Only'.
