Pattaya fruit vendors struggling to make ends meet during Covid-19 pandemic

Aunty Urai sells all sorts of fruits including langsat, papaya, watermelons, rambutans, oranges and grapes.

 

It was but only a few months ago when Pattaya was still swarming with tourists from all corners of the world. They came to Thailand and especially Pattaya to enjoy the weather, the sights, our beaches, our bustling night life and of course our exquisite Thai cuisine.

Thailand is also known for hundreds of varieties of fruits. A person of any culture with any taste would definitely fall in love with at least one if not all the different species of fruits so abundantly available here.

 

At this time of year, the Durian season is upon us again, as we notice throngs of people gathering around fruit stands around town admiring the thorny green beauties piled up on a table or arranged neatly in boxes on the pavement. People anxiously looking over each other’s shoulders to get a glimpse of the fruit, longing for their turn to just get close and touch it.

Aunty's English is very good... I've noticed even street food sellers are being hit, because less people working, less tourists and people opting for free food queues instead

Everyone is effected by this Wuhan Flu . Maybe the Jacked up prices from certain Fruit will come down to the Normal Price range.
