Most bars have more staff than customers, gogos probably 5-1. had a businessman sit beside me this winter in a gogo in pattaya, he commented on how can these bars stay open, no customers in most,

Great.    Did you notice I started this thread in the Pattaya Forum?

Well Hooters Pattaya was roasted by the expat community in Pattaya from the first day they opened and for years afterwards.......But Hooters just ignored all the zillions of negative expat posts and t

I did say we have digressed.

 

Moving back on topic then, have you lost any of your favourite places?

Have you lost some of your favourites over the last 12 months, since I started this thread, but more so, in the last 6 months, since Covid?

recently, PBG. sad to see those gates locked up. i know the place was like Marmite, you either loved it or hated it. i loved it. getting there around 5.30, few good value bevvies whilst the sun went down. should have gone there more often. 

whats recently gone will evolve into new bars and restaurants in the future. and i for one look forward to exploring the refurbished pattaya jungle . whenever that will be...

I have no doubt there will be some new bars to replace the old bars, but also, some buildings will sit idle.  

 

Some places have been "mothballed" which is  term being used now.  

 

It's early days, but I really hope Pattaya does not become Chinatown, like Sihanoukville.  Before anyone laughs that off, I went there and saw it for myself.  

 

Pattaya is ripe for their picking now, casinos aside.

i went to 'snooky' in 2007/08/09/10. first time when the trip from Trad border took most of the day, before the new roads and bridges, when there were around 3 or 4 ferry crossings. and 'snooky' was in 3 parts, 2 beach areas and the central part around the market. 

i have only seen pictures of the place as it is now, and would never want to visit as it is now. if the same happened in a rejuvenated pattaya, i would imagine only the chinese(?) would find any attraction to it.

let's hope that is never on the cards. a scary prospect indeed.

hopefully the rules on foreign ownership (the ones which we hate and complain about) will prevent this from being reality. if pattaya/ thailand comes out of this just the same as it was, we should breathe a sigh of relief.

Good post.

 

I was last in Sihanoukville in 2018, and I saw the colonization with my own eyes.

 

Let's hope similar doesn't happen here, because if it does, Pattaya would change dramatically.

Pattaya used to be just like snooky back in the day ... now we are celebrating the condos / high rise buildings / restaurants / nightlife . Maybe we will one day celebrate snooky for all it has to offer.

Only those transferred here for work, or offered a job here, may have come to Pattaya "sight unseen."  

 

 

First time I came I stayed for two years. Meant to go travelling around S E Asia but decided it was just too easy here.

i can relate to that. took me 3 years to realise that pattaya wasn't for me. but then i was on a bungee. had to return a few days each month, just to blow the cobwebs away. thailand's great. but pattaya...........in my heart
