Pattaya can change and look for tourists with other interests than sex and booze. Perhaps now is the best time for this. 

yeah! they should switch to sidewalk stands selling dreidels and tiddlywinks those nasty men.

If any owners of Clubs, Discos and bars are just sitting and waiting for things to get back to normal, they will be surprised, that the normal they know, will not come back again. There is going to be a totally new normal, so right now it´s time to be innovative and create new kinds of activities for people, who want to be social, but not social with everyone on the premises. 

Most bars are small and will have difficulties to survive, if they should try to move tables and seats, so people can keep a healthy distance to each others. Since most bars, clubs and discos in Pattaya have prostitution involved, the owners could focus more on this part of the business. F.x. they could provide private cabins / rooms, where prostitutes and customers could have their own private parties, with drinking, eating and boom boom. Now is definitely the time to think out of the box.

and think about her box

Bull-shirt... the girls are working online anyway, more will follow... and why is getting sheet-faced the idea of good time?  Better yet... Thailand could stop pretending and fully legalize casino gambling.  There you go!

"We"? Don't include me in your know all statement.

So just what do these do gooders and fundamental Christian experts here recommend Thailand and Pattaya do as an alternative ? Oh I know maybe Video arcades and Carnival rides...Majong parlors for the "wealthy upscale tourists" Maybe more malls or how about a nice Central Park with a zoo and paddle boats. Need a bar in Hua Hin anyone ?

Government is quick to critisize  bars and pubs but excuse me where was the first significant outbreak ? The bars and pubs support many staff and their families with jobs and provide social interaction and entertainment for Thais and foreigners alike. Are there too many bars ? If so who's fault is that ? If the government wants us out then re-zone the districts using a public review process or just cancel our licenses, refund the money and compensate us and our staff for our losses, everything has its price..We have all quickly realized that no business is immune from government ineptness and tyranny as there is no rhyme or reason in the shutdown ( slam dunk you're out ) or the restart ....uhhh not sure who can start, wait,wait oh uhhh nevermind .. must not lose face even though not have face.

This fact that younger generations lack an appreciation for live music is very disturbing to me.  I know 2 guys here from USA, one mid-40's and another early 30's who both "love" and "listen" to EDM, they had to tell me it stands for Electronic Dance Music.  Elwood Blues said it best:  ".... leaving the next generation with nothing but recycled, digitally-sampled techno-grooves, quasi-synth rhythms, pseudo-songs of violence-laden gangsta-rap, acid pop, and simpering, saccharine, soulless slush."

I have been listening/mixing house and techno for 30 years, I do like hearing some Thai singers though.
