Thai tourism in trouble: And competitor Vietnam is "scary" for Pattaya


Recommended Posts

I Stopped Looking At their Fake News About Figures As i See For My Self Bars Restos up for Sale All Over Pattaya and No One There And You Can Make Up Your Own mind No Need For Their False Figures. A Large Tiger Beer in Vietnam 30 Baht And In Pattaya Soi Buakhoa 80 baht For The Same beer in The Cheap Bars That Is And Food is Great Also in Vietnam Not Had Food Problems here Also  And Always a Smiling Face Like Thailand Was 15 Years Ago . GLUG GLUG GLUG THAILAND SINKING FAST NEARLY SUNK GREED HAS GOT THE BETTER OF THEM .

Exchange rate is bad, costs are going up, visas are getting a lot harder to get, and more competitive alternatives are arising.   it isn't really surprising stuff. Thailand ain't that cheap

Taxi company I use for my biz was always somewhat arrogant but did the job so stuck with them.   the other week was going away myself, owner was crying how quite it is.    Anyhow a

That´s great news! Maybe the bigger part of all foreign criminalty in Thailand can move to Vietnam too. Then this nice country can go back to what it once was.

No one mentioned Pattaya nice beach and clean ocean water,katoys aggressions,taxi with no meter,restaurants that overbilling,nice big green parks....and the kindness of Thai drivers when you cross the street 🤔 I've been to Pattaya one time and it was enough for me,but I can understand single men that are going but even if I was single I would go somewhere else.....

Go a little further South.  Pattaya is for tourists.

it isn't really surprising stuff. Thailand ain't that cheap anymore. Aussie dollar is like 21.7 thb these days. A lot of things are cheaper back in Aus now,

Goods in T/L are very cheap in  Thai Currency . It's your currency that makes it expensive. But your not helping matters by not spending your money in Australia.

I was just in Thailand. Had the last part of my ( what turned out to be expensive) holiday spoiled by the last two day falling in to a alcohol ban period. I lived in Thailand for a few years and I do respect Thai culture. But is it really a good idea to subject a heavily tourist populated area like Pattaya, to a blanket ban. Wouldn’t it be a better idea to give special licences out to these areas.

Can you explain why it turned out to expensive and was it compared to last time?

You got that right my Thai friends give me a shopping list of items that are cheaper in Aust. To bring back to Thailand. It appears that the only cheap things here is street food and Thai hand crafts, rent of course and beer. Forget the rest.
