The 'Pattaya Pattaya' Song

How many of our readers know the Pattaya Pattaya song---the "national anthem" of Pattaya and favourite party song? Do you actually know who wrote the song and sings it, or the history of it? Okay, most people probably don't, so we've done a bit of Internet research and, finally, here's some stuff we're sure you always wanted to know ...

Pattaya Pattaya was originally written by a Farang called Lou Deprijck, a Belgian singer and music producer who, according to Wikipedia, was a "major figure in the Belgian pop scene of the 1970s and 1980s, with more than 20 million copies of his compositions sold worldwide." Deprijck found huge mainstream success with his band Two Man Sound that "sold over a million copies of their 1975 single Charlie Brown while the album Disco Samba had sales of around 1.4 million copies in Latin America." His internationally best known hit is probably Ça plane pour moi which he recorded and sang for Plastic Bertrand in 1977.

You will need to have a health certificate that has been issued by a certified veterinary surgeon in your home country. This health certificate will need to specify exactly which breed the animal is and how many animals are included. It will give details on the pet such as breed, sex, age and any identifying features. It will contain the contact details of the owner as well.

The North of Thailand is the most popular region for trekking because of the cooler temperatures; Tak province and the Doi Inthanon national park near Chiang Mai are both popular regions and there are companies that can arrange short or long treks.
