Pattaya Parables by John Tudor Griffiths
Date 09-30-2012 | Views  555

 The author served in the Royal Hong Kong Police from 1960 to 1993 and, after discovering Thailand in the late sixties, visited the â€"Land of Smiles” at least once each year. After leaving Hong Kong and returning to his native Wales he continued to visit for a month each Spring and Autumn. He consummated his love for Country by marrying a young Thai lady who unfortunately died, still young, from cancer.

In the course his visits he naturally became well acquainted with the night scene in Pattaya and, being an experienced observer, acquired the material that provides the basis for this book. The vignettes in this book capture a wide spectrum of Pattaya nightlife and provide the reader with an easy to read but interesting voyage into the pathos and the humour that exists behind the bright lights.
For anyone who has visited Pattaya it will bring back memories and for those yet to visit a taste of what is awaiting them.
The author has also published â€" Reminiscences of a Hong Kong Chailo” about his life in the police force in Hong Kong.
