keith101 they should talk to themselves as to how they have fleeced and abused tourists.five or six fellows beating up one person does not send the right signals to others.

You Marcus know how to spin all news into good news.

Yeah hop in at Hopf reservation isn’t needed!

By saying hundreds of restaurants along the beach and on walking street I'm spinning a story into good news?  More like truth.  Pattaya has many good restaurants and many mediocre to bad ones.  Ask a local and find the good ones.  JT's been talking about them for 10 years.

How's that working in Russia or China?

What to believe, Sports Minister Weerasak Kowsurat says that there are no problems with tourists, they come in large numbers and expects an increase. The Baht fort is no problem!
And then this: "They must have gone to the temples instead!" - Pattaya as dead as a dodo in the holidays!
Where is the truth? There is not even a middle ground, dead is dead!
As usual, TAT and Minister of Tourism tell of beautiful fairy tales adorned with dream numbers, the fighters on the spot see the naked and cruel reality!

I am a Canadian and I have been in Pattaya 8 years now! I used to get 30b per dollar then...but weakness of the Canadian dollar and strength of the Baht have reduced my buying power in Thailand by more then 25%! I am lucky now if I get 23b to the dollar! When tourist travel to areas of bargains they'll certainly look at the cost of their holiday and go where they get most for their dollar! Add trip advisor discouraging comments plus friends whom had past bad experience in Thailland...you have a recipe for disaster!

It would be if any of that was printed in Mandarin or Hindi.

Countless trips to LOS since 1994. I visited Pattaya once in 2004 and pretty much decided after an hour of being there, having teeth pulled is a more pleasant experience.

Perhaps others are starting to catch on

Great idea but the problem is one has to listen while the other talks, then if they still can't agree they have to agree to disagree. Can it be done?
