Yes, and soon food and drink will also be banned.

Doubt breathing will be banned though.

Speak to any beach chair vendor and they will tell you the same story as to why there has been a dramatic drop of in customers lately.

555. Only 7 % of people smoke! And they are a dieing breed, literally!

You need to provide a link to that figure (including tourists in Pattaya).

 

Also, smokers have friends. Usually went to the beach as part of a party of 4. Now, none of us spend the day on the beach.

 

I certainly don't advocate smoking but neither do I advocate pointless regulations that drive tourists away, the prime example being the illegality of vaping. According to NHS guidelines, 95% safer than smoking. I wouldn't smoke, but vape in Thailand if it were legal, absolute madness.

It irritates me substantially that because of these insane rules that I have to tolerate so much cigarette smoke when I try to have a night out in Pattaya. I could live with vaping!

A good case in point. Smoking has been illegal in bars/restaurants for many years, yet continues unabated due to the "tea money" culture. Certainly far more dangerous and unpleasant for non smokers than sitting near someone on the beach enjoying a cigarette in the wide open fresh air.
