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

Recommended Posts

Well just been there earlier this week and it was indeed much more quiet in many areas. I personally enjoyed it more, less crowd and easier to get to places, walk around.

Also noticed a lot of good offers in terms of food and drinks, get rid of the poor preforming places and keep the good ones open.
I would actually not mind it to stay like this, would make me visit more often. At least money I spent is appreciated again.

Walking Street was <deleted> tho, super annoying with those Chinese tour groups as well.

Good Lord , and I thought I was the oldest on TV at 72.  How about another poll. ' What age bracket is one in innit '

... choose to stay away from the nightlife venues...

 

Who wouldn't, with all the scams, overpricing and lawlessness going on? Then again, fret not. Your tourism boss Khun Yuthasak expects a seven percent rise in foreign visitors during the five day New Year period. Plus, the Chinese are coming back, and will double over the next decade.

 

So sit tight, hang in there, do nothing and wait for the money to roll right in.

 

Like you've always done.

August and facing being hit with the sham insurance on my next extension, I'm considering moving back here and leaving behind the constant immigration and police hassles. Retirement is supposed to be a low-stress lifestyle.

your not going to find it very relaxing when you need medical and your uninsured in vietnam

a thinning down of the bars wouldn't be too bad a thing, Pattaya is a lot more spread out now than it used to be, so even with a decent amount of visitors it gives the appearance of being even more quiet than it actually is because people aren't concentrated in just a couple of areas any more.

 

Also means on my next trip I won't encounter as many people crying about when 'it used to be 75 baht to the pound and girls were nicer then yawn blah blah"

 

Prices over there haven't risen in a long time, so the less curmudgeons there thinking prices should drop everywhere when it's their own currency thats weak then the better for me - I can adapt by buying less Lady drinks which are a waste of money anyway. Ex pats can always move to Vietnam, you managed to leave your drab country so I'm not too sympathetic

Not sure about pristine. That must just leave the temples for the tourists - they've gone from preying to praying.

both paying
