Stop seeing it as a problem and the issue will go away. Most of the population does not see it as a problem.

You are wrong. For the healthy part of the country, which is the majority, this is a problem. Just think of all the problems faced by the Thai in terms of visa when they go to the West.

First, LOS was going to be the first country to eliminate drugs. Now short time. Good luck with either one!

You see this all over the world. New, arrogant leaders take power and decide they are the ones who are going to succeed at stamping out drugs and prostitution. It's never going to happen. Duterte over in the Philippines is finding this out right now. I remember a state premier in Queensland, Australia closed down all brothels. Prostitutes had to work alone. Prostitutes were dying. Brothels are open again.

"must try to change the image of Pattaya into a destination of quality tourism and not as a sex destination."

 

Now where's that guy that can walk on water, and turn water into wine?

The current GDP estimate of tourism's contribution to Thailand's economy is 17%, so not sure where the gentleman who quotes 40% for the sex industry is sourcing his data. Of the 17%, non sex tourism would be the vast majority of it.

If sex tourism disappeared tomorrow, Pattaya would continue on with a blip on the graph showing a temporary decline before resuming it's rise in tourist numbers as the Chinese continue their unabated arrivals along with European and Russian families.

Thailand continues to be an extremely popular tourist destination worldwide regardless of political uncertainty, strong baht, tsunami's etc. 

      Totally agree.   Pattaya is already getting the vast majority of its tourist numbers from non-sex tourists.  The change in Pattaya's image has come, not from any government efforts of note, but almost entirely from private industry investment on a rather vast scale. 

      Private industry built Central Festival, Cartoon Network Waterpark, Singha Theater, Colosseum, Nong Nooch Gardens, Pattaya Floating Market, Ramayana Waterpark, Sanctuary of Truth, Harbor Mall,  Central Marina, Cape Dara, Centara, Royal Cliff, and dozens and dozens of high quality condominium developments, among many other projects. attracting main-stream tourists. 

     Private industry is continuing  to pour money into Pattaya with the huge Terminal 21project, the large Amari Hotel expansion, the Grand Sole Hotel renovation and redevelopment of the large adjacent land tract, and numerous other new hotel and condominium projects on the books.  

     If the PM really wants to do something for Pattaya's image he could start by cutting off a chunk of the EEC's big development money and use it to start upgrading Pattaya's infrastructure.  The public development  of Pattaya is lagging far behind the successful efforts of private industry.

Please.. whilst I don't agree with people who grossly exaggerate the sex tourism figures in regards to GDP, if there is one place where the shit would hit the fan after a serious crackdown on prostitution, then it is certainly Pattaya. I certainly would not want to be around to see the aftermath.

You obviously haven't been to Pattaya in awhile.  Or, you confine yourself to the bars.

Thailand will cease to be the sex capital of the world only when the countless thousands of women and men working in the flesh trade are able to obtain alternative legal jobs which pay enough to support them and their families.

 

After nearly four years of doing <deleted> towards achieving this worthy objective, will the PM (scraping by on a paltry 154,000 baht a month plus personal assets of more than 100 million) kindly explain how this economic miracle is to be achieved?

 

If he can't, this is just one more reason why the General and his Cabinet of hi-so millionaires should be given the elbow - if and when they summon up the guts to go to the country.

I would dread to think just how much of a gaping hole (no pun intended) shutting down the sex trade would leave.

These foreign mongers, for all their flaws do pump a lot of cash in and this money does go to Thai brass on multiple levels.. Regulate it and actually make it safer for the ladies and gents working in this trade, and make even more cash too, forget so called morals. They certainly don't appear to exist at a government level

This is logical, however, Thailand is a Buddhist nation and one of the basic precepts is "Abstain from sexual misconduct" so the government must give the impression it is keeping with all the precepts not just some restrictions on alcohol I will refrain from comments about truthfulness (and watches) 555

    Prayuthism is a very serious disease and should be avoided by all costs. I hope it's not contagious.
