World Class Pattaya: State of the art light rail network to meet incoming tourists

Recommended Posts

At least if the sky train breaks down they can turn off the power and let you out to walk back along the track, but when this breaks down ???

Will it have inflatable emergency escape slides like aircraft?

It might help if action were taken to attract tourists that don't travel by coach and actually go into shops, bars, restaurants etc etc because while tourist numbers as reported are good it is plain to anyone that isn't blind that the economy of Pattaya is collapsing. Just look at the number of businesses that have closed and are now shuttered. Mass numbers of Chinese just drive off the money spending variety of tourist that really help local people.

Where does the money come from?

I don't know any one who pays taxes in pattaya. 

 

Chinese investors again, no doubt. 

 

Walking street will be renamed monorail street.

You don't think every business in Pattaya pays taxes?  They collect tax on my bank accounts every year at a Pattaya bank.  Vat tax is paid by everyone I think?  So actually unless you are not in Thailand or Pattaya - you are completely wrong.

Oh, don't!

Inflatable - in Pattaya?

New news report articles about "ferang died after falling from monorail"?

One question... WHY?

To handle the millions of Chinese tourists that will come to gamble.  Chinese people are taking all of their money out of China and buying up everything in Pattaya so it is just a matter of time before the Casinos are built.   China is very unstable now with the US trade war and the Hong Kong thing.  Pattaya is a good alternative.

Interesting, but I wonder how many bars, restaurants, other retail outlets and condo apartments will be blocked from sunlight by a monstrous elevated monorail system outside their front doors and windows?

Good idea if you have any tourists to move?  Years ago Sydney Australia had a monorail that went around the city; it lasted maybe 8 years and was pulled down.

If they did go ahead with this scheme, can you imagine how long it would take and how much worse the traffic would be - sounds like an absolute nightmare in the making

More targets for the world class ladyboy pick pockets, well done!

I've lived in the Pattaya area for 12 years and it must be many months since I last saw a ladyboy. I've never had my pockets picked by one. Mind you, if you're the type who likes to get up close to them it may happen. However, if you live in a wooden hut in a jungle clearing in Nakhon Nowhere, it probably won't.

at least it will be above the flooding that trillions of Baht has not fixed

Wonder how the state of the art water tuk tuk's will look like to bring incoming tourists to their accommodations ... 🤔

 

.... and if any arguing about the price you are forced to pay or swim away ... :shock1:

I thought it was destined to be rather far out to the East beyond the lake. 

It is--that's why they need something to get all the passengers into Pattaya.
