Pattaya: It's official - Pattaya tourism down the pan, Chinese off to Vietnam and Indians the last hope

Recommended Posts

While waiting for my daughter to file a missing luggage item, I had the time to scan arrivals at the big Suvana Airport. Three hours in fact and I saw the Indian tourists arriving. Good luck.

 As usual clueless.  The hotel numbers are down because lots of tourists are now staying illegally in condos.  And likely to get worse as a number of mega condo projects that will be instant hotels are just opening, being built or in the pipeline.

Come back ??

To come back they would have to leave first,

and I see no reason why this should happen...??

Many have already left and not just from Pattaya up here in Khonkaen I know a lot who have left in the past year. 

I am leaving end of the month but this is more to do with Australian  pension requirements.

They always like to blame something/someone else rather than the fact that the baht is way to high for a lot of to afford to come to Thailand for a holiday

Fair comment.  The article appears to be Pattaya specific and as we know that has it's own attractions appealing more to single men than families.  Wonder how it compares to Phuket, Krabi, Koh Samui and other more family friendly resorts.

 

I imagine tourism is down country wide but maybe for different reasons and not just the high value of the baht.
