A lovely Saturday morning here in Paradise, sitting drinking fresh coffee 18 kms out from Pattaya, we could all do with some of whatever this bloke has been smoking!!

 

Mr Banks.... Doing same same you're doing only "in" Pattaya! Came on this article just to have a laugh!  555.  Wait until the Russians find out the water they swim in is an open sewer.  Ha Ha. Only ones left in Pattaya are going to be the cheap charlies!   Up 10%, 5555555555!  ROFL

I live in Pattaya and am a frequent visitor to some of the bars and pubs etc. Apart from the odd few these places a devoid of customers some are even empty and that is even in the supposed high-season. Pattaya is dying as a tourist destination and nothing TAT do or say is going to stop the process.

You cant get parking, because of the Tour buses
Walking street is packed by Chinese and Middle East

Special Massages are now performed by older frumpy ladies... Those younger fit ladies must be back home at the village
Many shops are essentially bare, except those on the Tour run
Beer Bars are not doing well at all, except those in the Arab areas
(all comments just a generalization)

 

Why would anyone want to go to Pattaya when other countries just do it better

It is... try to drive in Pattaya now days or better yet, find a parking spot,
Pattaya is always busy around this time of the year, but this is not the
Pattaya of old, it's all about money now, and stupid edict like don't smoke
on beaches, tones of drugs and illicit sex and every other vice under the
sun is available not to mention variety of Mafia Thai and foreignness
operating there, never mind all that as long as the tourists are still coming.....

Are you saying that the men of Pattaya prefer sex with men rather than women? The go-go bars must be empty!!

I believe him.

 

Though he did not mention from which number the 10% up originated from.  If it was 10% up from the record low all around number, then I believe the start of the high season brought them a 10% rise. Not that it means now hordes of white longnoses come swarming your way . . . No worries, yet it still leaves his statement as standing correct.

 

What goes for the F.I.T. numbers . . . backpack travelers have always been a rare breed in Thailand's most beautiful seaside resort, so I guess he means "individuals" from India, Pakistan and the Arabian Peninsula are up 30% which I actually can confirm from my point of view

 

All quiet on the Eastern Seaboard Front !

Tourists only have X amount of spending money. Still get the millionaire 2 week tourist as i saw in the barbers giving every girl 100 Baht tip. In reality peoole are spending less than previously due to XE and others have just saught cheaper drinking and eating places. Lets face it, Thailand is very expensive if you wish to enjoy fine dining etc. Still offers relatively cheap street food but families dont really want that. 

"Free and independent" probably also means that they don't give a f*** what their Farang families want. So, Thai street food vendors get their share, too.

"Though it was not clearly defined as 10% up on what." Similar to other 'claims" in the Kingdom - never tested or factually verified.

 

Maybe this "spokesperson" was a protege of Kobkarn? :whistling: 

Probably if she was still around the figures would have been far greater? Didn't save her though.
