Pattaya is dead, or is it?

Between Rayong and Ban Chang, thank goodness. 

So a short drive from Pattaya then? Could it be that you are jealous because the bars in Bang Chang have gone seriously downhill lately?

It's not dead , too many Russians and Chinese around where I live. Went to Soi Boakaow last night, all the British places were packed. So not dead yet.

Me too. Not quite as busy as a few years ago but still hard to get a seat in some bars. Billabong was heaving.

I was heaving in Billabong once. Think I got a dodgy pint. Which one of the 10 I'm not sure.

Demographics have changed, Pattaya is busy but long gone are the days of getting a beer and a bird for a tenner all night.....a real night out with drinks, shots, some thai grub, lady drinks, bar fine and a bit for her costs almost a few hundred quid.

Ha good one, but  I don't tend to judge a place by how many bars it has, or on what goes on in those bars, but I know that others do.  I guess we all have an opinion on what makes City a good one to visit. Not sure that I would take the 60km from my home to Pattaya as being a short drive.

So the bars are your sole criteria for judging a place? Interesting,  although you are not alone in that I guess. Lot's of very discerning people go to Pattaya for the bars.

I love how up in arms ppl get thinking that what you said is all a lie but in reality you nailed it on the head.

The place is an unplanned mess, a sewer in place of the sea, a rubbish tip for a beach and a traffic nightmare.  It floods in the rainy season, stinks in the dry season and is full of people you would never wish to see, meet or ever socialise with. Dead? here's hoping.

In fact all of LK Metro was "banging" at 2AM this morning!

I think if anything Pattaya is improving. I hope they clean up all the bars between beach road and second road. Keep soi 6 and walking street if needed, but gentrify the <deleted> out of the beach and 2nd road section of the city. push all the eye-sore shit past second road

And remove all the casinos from Macau while they are at it! 

 

Gentrify? Seriously? And open a Tiffany shop?

Plenty of lowlife depravity to wallow in for years to come yet (hooray).

 

Not the same clientele though (more younger men from countries where you can't get close to a woman unless she has a male relative with her).

 

And they will not miss the "good old days" and think that it is not as good as it was and that it has no future.

 

Because young men, with everything to play for, do not miss.......the good old days.

 

And for them the future will be.......marvelous.

Either on some farm in the middle of nowhere in UK or some Issan village in the middle of the jungle 😂😂😂

Isaan and jungle don't go together... it's like putting together Pattaya and cleanliness...

The rising Thai Baht is sorting out who comes here now..another year of any strong THB currency growth and never mind the tourists it will be the locals who will be looking to vacate!
