Pattaya: Yet more adverse effects on tourism - but a "beautiful" Walking Street future awaits

Recommended Posts

I guess this an admission that Beach Road will not be finished by Feb. 2020 LOL

 

They have only reached the Hard Rock so far.

 

This Walking Street work will definitely drag into next years High Season.

 

Still the Avenue Guys and their project will surely be happy?

"... ... planning to bury .....***something something*** large drainage pipe... ***something something***" ....didn't catch the full sentence, but it seems they finally understand the true attraction of Pattaya 😬

Was in Pattaya for New Years seeing  a customer who was vacationing there.  Everyone was so well mannered.  Had a great time.  Funny, the wires are not part of my memory.   The main problem, from my point of view, in Pattaya is the filth on the beach and in the sea.   If they want more tourists, allow for 60 day visa exempt.  Many of my Thai friends also moved there, as it seems to have more opportunities than Bangkok now, according to them.  It seemed freer than Bangkok.

The head of the operators' association of Walking Street, South Pattaya, told Manager that proposed infrastructure work in the heart of the city's lightlife district will definitely have an adverse impact on tourism. 

What does he mean by having an adverse impact on tourism? Why do it at all?

 

Adverse to me means unfavourable, contrary to interests. Correct me if I'm wrong.

 

Comments like that must mean they are really trying to kill off Pattaya once and for all. Good luck with that...................

Short time pain for long time gain. Adverse as in it will be a pain in the proverbial while the works are underway but long term WS will be more aesthetically pleasing.

This happened in lower Sukhumvit, Bangkok & we all lost our cable TV.

Cable Co " I cannot afford their ridiculous costs to use their undergound ducts &  (or) recable Sorry."

I wonder who was the lucky friend of a friend who got all the copper cable
