Pretty sure Pattaya couldn't care less.

Most people going to the beach are locals, not tourists. It's not like they would have driven to Pattaya instead of Hua Hin anyways and any actual "tourists" are probably from the neighbouring areas who, again, wouldn't drive all the way to Pattaya to go to the beach.

Just like a couple weeks ago when a bunch of us rode down to Rayong for lunch. We didn't go there because the beaches in Pattaya were closed  and we certainly weren't going to ride all the way to Hua Hin because the beaches there were open.

I imagine though that it will put pressure on the authorities to open the beaches again. Even the Mayor of Bang Saen will have to re-open those beaches sooner or later.

The worry for Pattaya is that people from Bangkok may choose Hua Hin over Pattaya. The beach needs to be opened pronto, along with tourist attractions and small businesses that cater to tourists. According to press reports today much of that will happen in time for June 1st. Things seem to be loosening up.

I quite liked hua hin. The bar area is nice, i like to walk around. Not as dirty as pattaya and certainly less of a mercenary feeling there. It is a more laid back feeling.

Weekenders from Bangkok aren't going to save HH or Pattaya.  Both locations need tourists to survive and there's been little sign of tourists for the past few years.  

 

There'll be a saturation of the real estate market coming very soon and both locations will become non-tourist resorts.  This is it and Patong Beach is also included.

And that simply is not true for Pattaya.... it has had large numbers of Chinese and Indian tourists.

many reflect the attitudes of the country they arrived from, and you can see why their home countries are the health disasters they are..
