Are you aware of places like Royal cliff hotel etc in Pattaya, they are 5 star hotels and a room is 5-10k a night, they a full of well off tourists, well off chinese, families etc. Not everyone is a 500 baht a night monger, but if thats the part of Pattaya you are familiar with, that will be your view of Pattaya.

I'm well aware of Royal Cliff and the other * resorts. That doesn't change the fact that Pattaya itself has no real attractions other than the ones I noted previously.

You can't have much experience of staying in Pattaya if you think places are available in numbers at 500 baht a night. Those days ended last century.

Many of their customers are close to begging the government to let them reopen too. With no local transmissions in a couple of weeks now, there is essentially no one out there right now for people to

This government aint interested in farang bars or entertainment 

Or the Thai's that work in that industry.

They are both awful. Even big spenders balk at their rip-offs.

If one actually knows anything about Samui or Phuket one knows the places to stay that are not rip offs.

If a rich person came to Pattaya they could pay a lot to stay at Hilton etc but there is nothing for them outside the hotel, so what would be the point, except for rich golfers?

Other than a polluted bay, a polluted island and a few local attractions eg Temple of Truth, Pattaya has nothing to attract tourists and it's so decrepit and broken that "normal" tourists have no reason to go there.

I was at Central the other day and was on the deck of the upstairs hamburger shop. The bay was looking quite beautiful. I wasn't the only one taking photos.

Thailand will soon open to foreigners with PR, Work Permits and Thai families to return to them.... perhaps he fits into one of these groups. There has yet to be a vaccination requirement, but up to now Thai authorities seem to be sitting on a success story wrt protecting its people. I feel fortunate to have come under that umbrella.

The 'I'm alright jack brigade' don't seem to understand how economics works.

If a city has no customers then its shops, restaurants, bars and infrastructure start to not function and survive.

That means that while you sit in a smug bubble the place begins to fall down around you.

This dirty farang narrative seems to be gathering pace and i would be nervous of future negative changes to immigration policy.

How does that work, do  people living in the area and domestic tourists not go to the shops ?

You need income to spend money.

Pattaya and surround needs tourism.

The place will slowly fall apart.

Pensioners on fixed income and a strengthening baht isn't a great combination for an economic boom.

Enjoy the peace and quiet but its a luxury Pattaya and surround can't afford.

Pattaya has tourism, the 7 motorway is rammed packed with BKK numberplated cars full of people heading to Pattaya on Friday afternoons.

 

Doubt the Pensioner on the fixed income contributes much at all to an economic boom but its not something I considered so duly noted.

I have loads of photos of Pattaya, but I'd never go there for the scenery. I bet no one else goes there to enjoy the view of the bay from Central either.

Pattaya for farang tourists was for the night life, golf and as a base to tour elsewhere. Beaches are far better elsewhere. It has a few attractions such as Alcazar, Temple of Truth, Big Buddha, Mini Siam, Bottle museum, the aquarium, Nong Nooch, the cable drop, Koh Larn, but none of those are sufficient to entice farang tourists on their own, IMO.

Which is why it's important to separate farang tourism from local and Chinese tourists.

As I posted I was not the only one there taking photos. There were several and was only there the time it takes to eat a hamburger. Have been in the neighbourhood for 4 to 5 years and I still feel an attraction to the "dirty Miami" aspect of Pattaya. Nice boulevard but holes in the ground everywhere. Hookers mixing with tourists. My hamburger cost 65 baht and I could sit on a deck with a beautiful view to eat it.

Living the dream.

With big spenders like you Pattaya will thrive.

And that's the market bars will be allowed to open up for.  Why bother opening at all?
