Customers in Pattaya’s famous bars and nightclubs down a whopping 40%

Customers in Pattaya’s famous bars and nightclubs down a whopping 40%

 

That is because there is no more prostitution in Pattaya, as the PM said.  :cheesy:

 

Russian family strolling down Walking Street one night.

Little boy points to the girls on stage at an open-front club and asks "Mama, what kind of dancing is that?"

"That is Thai ballet, son.  We are in the theatre district"

There's a lot more tourists arriving in Thailand than that sample, that seems to represent less than 15%, I can see why you might think tourist numbers have collapsed using those figures. 3m Chinese !!! If only that were true.

You are misquoting me.

 

I have always said TAT is probably right, the numbers are up.  It's the money from those increased numbers that is down, way down.  No point having plenty of tourists if they don't spend and money.  

 

I said the western tourist market here has all but collapsed, when compared to previous statistics.  

 

There are many graphs and charts on the internet showing the decline in western tourists to Thailand.

$200 fan rooms

Hope you meant baht. //

Unsure...

$200 is about 6'000 B, so the monthly price of many rooms around Soi Buakhao...

You can find way cheaper, mainly if you accept east of 3rd Rd.

The thing that killed it for me was cost of insurance.

I miss LOS.

As I said in another thread, why not base yourself in a neighboring country, and holiday regularly to Thailand on 30 day visa exempt stamps? 

 

You get the stability of easy, cheap, and long visas in a neighboring country, but get to see Thai "girly girls" regularly. 

 

The flights are cheap, no 800k or insurance rubbish to worry about.

Fair enough. I thought he meant daily price, but yes monthly probably. Wish people would use baht when talking about Thai prices. Many different $ in use.

Are you not aware that many visa exempt visits in one year are not allowed now?

Since when ??? :unsure:

I know a guy who comes every month from Cambodia for 1 week in Thailand, and I don't think he ever got a problem at the airport ...

Yes, I know, but it's only really the back to back visa runners coming under notice. 

 

I have two friends that have left Pattaya, one went to Cambodia, and the other went to Vietnam.  Both come back to Pattaya for about a week to ten days, every 2 to 3 months.  Never had a problem. 

 

Both have said they enjoy their visits to Pattaya, but are glad they don't live in Thailand anymore.
