Naklua Sub-district(Pattaya City) history.
Pattaya-Naklua Legend :


Long ago on the South East Asian Peninsula people lived as one. There were no borders and the countries of Thailand, Burma, Cambodia, Malaysia or Singapore were yet to be born. Kingdoms battled for and ruled the land. In the 17th century, there was one powerful kingdom called “Pukam Kingdom” –located in what is now Burma. The Pukam kings often invaded “Ayutthaya Kingdom” –located in the central part of Thailand, because of competition to be the most empowered kingdom in the region.



In 1767 during the fall of Ayutthaya, “Praya Taksin” recruited 500 good soldiers without provisions and fought through the Pukam solider’s siege to fight off the Pukam invaders. They migrated southeast to “Mung Chantanboon” or what is today Chantanburi Province. On the way, Praya Taksin rested his troops at an unknown town in present day Chonburi Province. So, people named it “Tappraya” meaning “Imperial Army”. Seven months after returning to Ayutthaya, Praya Taksin and his troops liberated the kingdom and became a great king in Siam or Thai history. Later on in the early 19th century, “Tappraya” was changed to “Pattaya” for ease of saying.

The most fascinating historical part of Pattaya, however, is in Naklua. Naklua has its own intriguing history. It started as a small fishery village. Chinese merchants who sailed ships from mainland China stopped here to sneak away from the ferocious pirates of Malaya. They dropped off opium, gold, goods and other provisions at this small fishery village before transferring to Bangkok. From then on, the Chinese merchants called the small fishery village “Na-Kua” which in Chinese means “Hard Sail Port”. However, all travelers saw that the village was located in the middle of nowhere and was full of wild fierce animals, abandoned thick canopy rain forests and, of course, ambushing pirates. So, they misunderstood the name of NaKua village to be, “Scary village” which is the meaning in Thai. Later on, the scary village quickly developed into a big community and a town densely populated by people from all over. Then, NaKua in Chinese was changed to “NaKlua” in Thai meaning “Salt farm”. Eventhough Naklua has no salt farms, it does have shellfish farms which have been a cash cow for farmers from generation to generation in Naklua. In more recent years, Naklua’s economy boomed due to its reputation for fresh, tasty seafood and its proximity to the fine beaches which served as an excellent rest and relaxation spot for US army & navy personnel during the Vietnam War. In particular, tourists from all over the world have enjoyed eating and shopping at the markets and local shops in NaKlua for over 50 years.

Modern day Naklua has experienced consistent population growth. There are over 43,000 people and more than 20,000 households divided into four big communities. These communities are referred to by the local residents as “Tarad Kao Naklua” community, “LanPo” community, “Wat ChongRom” community and “Soi PraiSanee” community. These traditional communities serve as an attraction to international tourists who come to enjoy the old town feeling it holds. Also the deeply rooted internationally minded and passionate moral philosophy of the people impresses whoever experiences it. The people’s dedication to their beliefs and traditions can be seen through the vibrant community involvement in the ceremonies to celebrate the Vegetarian season from October 17th-28th every year at the “Shrine of Chinese God” named “SanJao Sain Xui”. More than 10,000 people participate in the ceremonies at the shrine and commit themselves to not eat any meat, wear white cloths, practice meditation and pray for good health, a long life and prosperity forever. The Naklua communities exemplify the spirit of the unknown town that came alive and played a role in saving the kingdom of Thailand. They do this in their actions and the way that they live their lives, holding onto traditions while warmly welcoming the international community to enjoy its leisurely lifestyle.

พัทยา-นาเกลือ ตลาด 100 ปี


นานมาแล้ว ในคาบสมุทรเอเชียตะวันออกฉียงใต้ มีผู้คนอยู่อาศัยโดยยังไม่ได้มีการแบ่งแยกเขตแดนหรือเป็นประเทศอย่างที่เห็นกันอย่างทุกวันนี้ นั่นหมายความว่า ยังไม่มีประเทศที่เรียกว่า ไทย พม่า กัมพูชา มาเลเซีย หรือ สิงค์โปร์ จวบจนมีการรบแย่งชิงอำนาจในแผ่นดินเกิดขึ้น ในศตวรรษที่ 17 มีอาณาจักรหนึ่งที่เรืองอำนาจมาก ชื่อ “อาณาจักรพุกาม” ซึ่งอยูในประเทศพม่าในปัจุบัน อนึ่งมีเรื่องเล่าว่า กษัติย์อาณาจักรพุกามมักกรีฑาทัพพร้อมเสนาสนะเปรียมด้วยแสนยานุภาพมากมายเข้ารุกราน “อาณาจักรอยุธยา” ซึ่งอยู่ในประเทศไทยตอนกลาง เนื่องจากการแข่งขันแย่งชิงอำนาจความเป็นใหญ่ในแผ่นดิน

ปีค.ศ. 1767 เข้าสู่ช่วงล่มสลายของอาณาจักรอยุธยา ระหว่างการรบพุ่งอย่างดุเดือด “พระยาตากสิน” ผู้ซึ่งเห็นว่า ถ้าอยู่รักษาเมืองต่อไป ก็จะไม่เกิดประโยชน์อันใด ครั้นถึงเห็นพม่าตั้งล้อมกระชั้นเข้ามาจวนถึงคูเมือง จึงรวบรวมพรรคพวกได้ประมาณ 500 คน พอตกค่ำก็ยกกำลังตีฝ่าวงล้อมของข้าศึกไปทางทิศตะวันออก หวังกลับมากอบกู้อิสระภาพในภายหน้า ได้มุ่งหน้าไปเมืองจันทบูร หรือ จังหวัดจันทบุรีในปัจุบัน ระหว่างทางพระยาตากสินได้หยุดพักในสถานที่ไม่มีชื่อ ซึ่งภายหลังชาวบ้านเรียกสถานที่แห่งนี้ว่า “ทัพพระยา” 7 เดือนหลังจากกรุงศรีอยุธยาแตก พระยาตากสินได้กลับไปขับไล่ผู้รุกรานและกอบกู้อิสระภาพได้สำเร็จ โดยพระยาตากสินทรงเป็นกษัติย์องค์สำคัญในประวัติศาสตร์ไทย ในยุคต้นศตวรรษที่ 19 ชื่อเรียก “ทัพพระยา” ได้แผลงคำเป็น “พัทยา”อย่างที่เรียกกันในปัจุบันนี้

ถ้าจริงๆแล้วส่วนที่น่าตื่นตาตื่นใจในประวัติของเมืองพัทยานั้นจะกล่าวนาเกลือก็ไม่ผิดต่อย่างใด โดยนาเกลือเริ่มจากหมู่บ้านชาวประมงเล็กๆแห่งหนึ่ง เพียงไม่กี่หลังคาเรือนซึ่งพ่อค้าชาวจีนได้ใช้เป็นที่หลบจากโจรสลัดมาลายูที่โหดร้าย เพื่อขนถ่ายสินค้าประเภท ฝิ่น ทองคำและเสบียงคลังอื่นๆก่อนที่จะขนส่งต่อไปกรุงเทพ ซึ่งพ่อค้าชาวจีนเรียกหมู่บ้านชาวประมงเล็กๆแห่งนี้เป็นภาษาจีนที่ออกเสียงว่า “นา-กัว” แปลว่า “ท่าใบเรือแข็ง” อย่างไรก็ตามคนเดินทางเห็นว่าหมู่บ้านแห่งนี้อยู่ในป่ารกชัก เต็มไปด้วยโรคภัยไข้เจ็บ สัตว์ป่าที่ดุร้าย ทั้งยังเป็นที่ซ่องสุมของโจรสลัด ดังนั้น คนจึงเรียกหมู่บ้านแห่งนี้ว่า “หมู่บ้านน่ากลัว” ภายหลังชื่อหมู่บ้านน่ากลัวได้มีการพัฒนาอย่างรวดเร็วเป็นชุมชนที่ใหญ่ขึ้น และเมืองในที่สุด หนาแน่นไปด้วยผู้คนมากมาย ดั้งนั้นชื่อเรียกหมู่บ้านน่ากลัวได้แผลงคำเป็น “นาเกลือ” แปลว่าสถานที่ทำนาเกลือ ถึงแม้ความจริงว่า นาเกลือไม่เคยมีใครทำนาเกลือ แต่มีการทำฟาร์มหอยให้ปรากฎเห็นตราบจนทุกวันนี้ และเป็นอาชีพที่ทำรายได้ให้แก่ชาวประมงตั้งแต่รุ่นปู่ ย่า ตา ยาย เป็นต้นมา ภาพรวมเศรษฐกิจของนาเกลือมีความเจริญอย่างต่อเนื่อง ด้วยชื่อเสียงจากการเป็นแหล่งขายอาหารทะเลสด อร่อย อยู่ไม่ไกลจากสถานที่ตากอากาศชายทะเลของทหารอเมริกันในช่วงของสงครามเวียดนาม ตลอดจนนักท่องเที่ยวจากทั่วทุกมุมโลกได้มาสนุกในการเลือกหา จับจ่ายใช้สอยซื้ออาหารทะเลสดๆติดมือกลับบ้านหรือเป็นของฝากมานานกว่า 50 ปี

นาเกลือวันนี้มีการเติบอย่างต่อเนื่องมีผู้คนอยู่อาศัยมากกว่า 42,000 คน หรือ 20,000 หลังคาเรือน แบ่งออกเป็น 4 ชุมชนใหญ่ ได้แก่ ชุมชนตลาดเก่านาเกลือ ชุมชนลานโพธิ์ ชุมชนวัดช่องลม และชุมชนไปรษณีย์ ซึ่งทั้งหมดเป็นสถานที่ที่ดึงดูนักท่องเที่ยวชาวต่างประเทศด้วยมนต์เสน่ห์แห่งความเป็นมิตรไมตรี ในคุณค่าความเป็นอยู่แบบดั่งเดิมและยั่งรากลึกของภาพสังคมที่สงบสุข โดยร้อยเรียงผ่านขนบธรรมเนียม จารีตประเพณีของท้องถิ่น เฉกเช่นพิธีกรรมแห่งความศรัทธาในเทศกาลกินเจ ณ ศาลเจ้า เซียนซือ ระหว่างวันที่ 18-27 ตุลาคมทุกๆปี โดยมีผู้คนเข้ามากกว่า 10,000 คนตั้งใจร่วมกันแต่งชุดขาว สวดมนต์ ถือศีลกินเจ ทำความดี นั่งสมาธิ ภาวนาขอพรเพื่อสุขภาพที่แข็งแรง อายุยืนยาวนาน และความเจริญรุ่งเรืองตลอดกาลนาน นาเกลือจากสถานที่ที่ไม่มีชื่อ แต่ชื่อนี้ถือว่าเป็นรากเง่าแห่งความทรงจำของการกอบกู้เอกราชและถ่ายทอดผ่านวิถีชีวิตความเป็นอยู่ของคนในท้องถิ่น จารีตและประเพณีแห่งศรัทธาเพื่อรอคอยผู้ที่จะมาเยือนได้สัมผัสแห่งความยินดี ความอบอุ่นของคนที่นาเกลือ

Owning Property in Pattaya city.

http://www.pattayaorganize.blogspot.com

http://i522.photobucket.com/albums/w349/iji2008/1562388_Xs30WeRGKE4643.jpg

Land
As matter of Thai Law ,foreigners are prohibited from owning land in Thailand.This includes foreign-owned companies,although,in theory,a company with a simple majority Thai ownership(i'e 51% Thai)can do so.However,in practice,to get through the necessary should be 60 to 70 % Thai owned.There is now a conditional and limited exception to this for holders of a Thailand Elite Membership Card.
Lease
In simple terms,it is permissible for foreign nationals to lease land in Thailand for up to 30 years and such a lease can be renewed for a similar period upon expiration of the initial term.However,such a lease must be registered with the land department.If it is not,it will only be valid for three years,regardless of the term.
Condominiums
Subject to certain conditions,foreign nationals are entitled to own individual condominium units in Thailand outright.

By the way PATTAYAORGANIZATION AND MANAGEMENT can solve this all problems for all you are,let me to manage for you.

Sincerely yours,

Mr.Sukij Boonplok

kindle device wireless(the immagination of Books)

http://i522.photobucket.com/albums/w349/iji2008/kidledevicewireless.jpg

This post might be Pattayaorganization and Management present the "immagination of The future book".

KINDLE DEVICE WIRELESS
http://astore.amazon.com/kindledevicewireless-20/detail/B000FI73MA/104-1310181-2037534
Three years ago, we set out to design and build an entirely new class of device—a convenient, portable reading device with the ability to wirelessly download books, blogs, magazines, and newspapers. The result is Amazon Kindle. We designed Kindle to provide an exceptional reading experience. Thanks to electronic paper, a revolutionary new display technology, you’ll find reading Kindle’s screen is as sharp and natural as reading ink on paper—and nothing like the strain and glare of a computer screen. Kindle is also easy on the fingertips. It never becomes hot, and is designed for ambidextrous use so both “lefties” and “righties” can read comfortably at any angle for long periods of time. We wanted Kindle to be completely mobile and simple to use for everyone, so we made it wireless. No PC and no syncing needed. Using the same 3G network as advanced cell phones, we deliver your content using our own wireless delivery system, Amazon Whispernet. Unlike WiFi, you’ll never need to locate a hotspot. There are no confusing service plans, yearly contracts, or monthly wireless bills—we take care of the hassles so you can just read. With Whispernet, you can be anywhere, think of a book, and get it in one minute. Similarly, your content automatically comes to you, wherever you are. Newspaper subscriptions are delivered wirelessly each morning. Most magazines arrive before they hit newsstands. Haven’t read the book for tomorrow night’s book club? Get it in a minute. Finished your book in the airport? Download the sequel while you board the plane. Whether you’re in the mood for something serious or hilarious, lighthearted or studious, Kindle delivers your spontaneous reading choices on demand. We’re very proud to introduce Kindle and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
Hope to serve you,regarding.

After-Dark in Pattaya City.

http://i522.photobucket.com/albums/w349/iji2008/1562388_Xs30WeRGKE4643.jpg
Pattaya news updating.
http://pattayavariety.blogspot.com/

After-dark,became to Pattaya Cityhttp://pattayavariety.blogspot.com/ the options include open-air bars,nightclubs,cabaret shows and discos have opened.The nightlife centre is South Pattaya,popularly known as"The Strip"http://www.cityoflove.com/index.aspx?url=http%3A//www.cityoflove.com/en/Thailand/Pattaya/default.aspx ,but if this is a trifle brash and noisy for some tastes,there are alternative,quieter spots for evening fun in more relaxed style.Shopping too,can be an evening attraction.Most establishments close late,and the dedicated bargain hunter can find all of Thailand's best buys-silk,gems and jewellery,tailor-made clothing,handicrafts and more.
Accommodation:
Pattaya boasts an incredible choise of accommodation to suit every pocket.Facilities range from luxury hotels with private beaches to bayside hotes and bungalows,and inland,economy class hotes and guest houses.
Getting There:
For getting around the main bay area,the minibuses and baht buses charge a flat fare of Bt10.The run to naklua is also Bt10,and to Jomtien Bt30.Drivers usually ask for Bt40 to travel up the hill to the Royal Cliff Beach Resorthttp://book.hotelreservations.com/index.jsp?pageName=hotInfo&cid=165272&hotelID=177871&temp1=sme290042&temp2=381782505&gclid=CKSDtKXhpZUCFQccegodWgVvkQ.Motorcycle hire will cost you between Bt150 and Bt700 a day,depending on size.Be very confident of your ability to handle the bigger bikes,including your skills in taking swift evasive action.Wear a crash helment.A jeep from a beachside vendor is about Bt1000 a day.Check that you have enough gasoline in the tank to get yourself to the nearest filling station,and satisfy yourself the brakes are shrap.You will not be asked to show your driving licence,but most of these beachside hire places will ask that you deposit your passport with them.Ask where going to keep it,because it maysimply be placed in the attendant's pocket or shoulder bag and travel around with him.Bicycles can be hired from beachside vendors at Bt100 a day,or Bt20 an hour.If you prefer to drive reputable vehicles with full insurance cover,and it is strongly advised,Pattaya has a choice of car rental companies.The leading name is Budget Car and Truck Rental in North Pattayahttp://www.budget.co.th/at Thip plaza (pattaya soi.10 & soi.11).In addition to international standards of service,this company will also offer you special deal,tour ideas,maps and other attractions to make your stay easier.If you prefer not to self drive then Image 5 star Taxi Company offers 1 way/return trips throughout Pattaya or hour by hour hire.They will pickup at your hotel or condo with their door to door service.
Climate:
Pattayahttp://pattayavariety.blogspot.com/ has three seasons:November to february,when it's hot;March to May,when it's hot and humid;and June to October,when it's hot and wet.
Clothing:
Dress as lightly as possible.Because of the heat and humidity,man-made fibres are not recommended.Pack some cool cottons,and if you find you are changing your clothes at an alarming rate,you will be able to buy locally made clothing very cheaply.Shorts and sandals are the usual daytime wear.In hotels and the more upmarket restaurants,wear smart casual.If visiting a temple,the usual dress rules apply:gentlemen,no shorts please,and long sleeves are preferred;ladies,no shorts,short skirts,or halter-tops.
Post and Telecommunications:
The Post office and international telephone office are together in South Pattayahttp://pattayavariety.blogspot.com/ on Soi.15,known to all as Soi.Post Office.There are also several privately run long-distance phone centres,most notably along Beach Road.These will be slightly more expensive than the government service.
Internet Services:
As in Bangkok,the number of internet cafes seems to increase every week.Most will post their rates in the window,and as competition is intense,the prices are invariably low.
Health & safety:
Never drink tap water,and don't even gargle with it.Always use bottled water,which is readily available and inexpensive,particularly if you choose a local brand.The sun is strong,even during the rainy season and when there is cloud cover,so use a good sunscreen and limit your exposure time.Malariahttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malaria is no threat,but mosquito bites can be a major irritant.Seafood is mostly caught locally and is of high quality,but given the spicy ingredients to almost any meal,the occasional upset stomach is a possibility.The most likely way of slowing down your vacation is by having an accident,so watch your step when crossing the road,even(or especially)at traffic lights and pedestrain crossings.Medicine for minor ailments are readily available at the many drug stores in the city,and a high standard of medical treatment for more serious problems canbe expected from most of the clinics and hospitals.General practitioners,dentists,opticians and pharmacies are readily available. Each of the private hospitals has its own ambulance service 24-hour emergency facilities.Most medical specialties are represented:neurology,orthopedics,obstetrics,gynecology,pediatrics,internal medicine,surgery,urology,dentistry.Bangkok Pattaya Hospitalhttp://www.bangkokpattayahospital.com/en/index.php is the referral hospital for cardiac patients as well as for other severe traumas and injuries.Note that an ambulance is not routinely called in the event of an automobile accident,and if you require assistance from the government service,a Thai-speaking person should dial 191 in Pattaya Cityhttp://www.ijobsi.blogspot.com/.Or 193 on the highway to arrange an ambulance service.For information and advice,the Tourism Authority of Thailand(TAT) http://www.tourismthailand.org/index.phpCentral Officea:Region 3 (Pattaya) is open seven days a week throughout the year,including public and national holidays,from 08.30 a.m. until 4.30 p.m.Tel.(038)428 750 or (038)429 113.
Action Attraction:
http://www.tourismthailand.org/attraction/chonburi-20-1.html
Pattaya Cityhttp://pattayavariety.blogspot.com/ is one of the oldest diving centres in this part of Asia.It has a year-round diving season with good visibility,the waters have a mean temperature of 28 degrees C,and there is a rich variety of marine life and coral.There is a great wreck that divers can explore.Located about 1-1/2 hours from pattaya is the HTMS Khram Wreck.This 60 meter vessel lies upright in 28 meters of water.Here,you can watch as Big Bat Fish,Schooling Baracuda and Sting Ray make their way around the wreck.Most of the centers along the waterfront costs average at about 3,000 baht per day,including transportation,food and equipment.Visitors can windsurf,water ski,sea walk,swim,sunbathe,snorkel,sail,or take trips to offshore coral islands.They can rent water scooters to explore neighbouring beaches such as the increasingly popular Jomtien Beachhttp://www.tourismthailand.org/attraction/chonburi-20-3282-1.html just south of Pattayahttp://pattayavariety.blogspot.com/.Tennis enthusiasts can enjoy themselves at the courts of leading hotels.Further entertainment includes bowling alleys,snooker halls,shooting galleries and archery.
