Action needed now to save "filthy, dangerous, rip-off, vice ridden" Pattaya, says watchdog

Recommended Posts

Let's say everything Watchdog wants gets done. What have you got? Another city-sized shopping mall, but this one with sand. Big whoop. I say take what you've got and add gambling and duty free booze. Boom town!

"Leadership" in Pattaya has been under the same family for a long time now, nobody brave enough to stand against them!

I understand where you're coming from.. but

T.A.T and the economy can suffer indefinitely.... everyone falls eventually when the cards are stacked against them high enough.

Soi 6? Don't you mean soi boom boom? Most bar fronts in Pattaya have rooms upstairs for boom boom and all the bar girls are for sale. On one of my more recent trips to Pattaya I was sitting and chatting with a couple of bar girls and they were laughing about the officials claiming that there's no prostitution in Pattaya. It's a joke, all a big joke. No pun intended... 555

Really?

I never understood what the girls wanted to tell me when they talked about going upstairs. Now you opened my eyes. I am shocked!

If they get rid of the prostitutes, how are these poor girls supposed to support their families? All of these girls come from Issan with little or no education and no work for them. The economy, the country, the culture is what it is in Thailand. There is no social security system for the elderly so a family will have many children. The boys stay home to work what few jobs there are and the girls go to Pattaya and the like to work in the sex industry. It's a fact of life in Thailand and nothing will ever change because they don't want to live by any other cultural standards. They think they know better than the rest of the world so just wash your hands of it and take from it what works best for you until it's all gone and move on...

Do you think the social security system is different in other developing countries? Why prostitution is in Thailand so much more famous than by example in Vietnam?

They'll catch up. Mongers didn't go to Vietnam after the war, until now.

I agree about the rip-offs and footpaths. The police should set up checkpoints and stop all taxis to make sure the meter is running and question the tourist about the legitimacy of the drivers story. If the meter is not running arrest the driver and tow the taxi to the impound lot. As far as the footpaths are concerned it's safer to walk in the street with traffic!!!

Oh yeah!

 

Please stop my taxi when I'm on the way back to my hotel with 1800baht worth of sweetheart wrapped round me so I can fill in a policeman's questionnaire, and then be left on the pavement half cut to start the whole thing again.

 

Seriously, have you got half a brain?

There's certainly no mincing of words in this statement !

That watchdog must be a pit bull 😂.

Yeah, and Starbucks must be real important to tourists. I didn't know people came for the coffee. 

Plus complaining about baht-buses which is the best mode of transportation in Thailand. I just wish there were more routes.

I remember the thriving Pattaya of old - a money-spinning magnet to millions of international sex tourists and sexpats.

 

Then some genius came up with the idea of transforming Sin City into a family resort - and the place has been tanking ever since.

 

Obviously never heard the old saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".

I have never been there, but I thought it was a World class family resort,

well according to TAT.

You don't know what you're not missing then. Go on give it a try before you die - that could almost be their new slogan. It does have the cleanest restaurants in Thailand for real though.

As to prostitutes, I haven't seen any today.  Mind you, I haven't left my condo yet.  😋

 

Don't, whatever you do, leave your condo it's the wild west out there.
