Pattaya: Beaches are packed for the long weekend - media posts picture of it deserted!

Recommended Posts

There were many people in Pattaya on the long weekend. Jontiem was packed. Tried to go to the seafood restaurant at the end of Jontiem beack but gave up. Too much traffic. BnB next door full of uni students for 3 days.

While I have long suspected the number given by the Thai government re Covid cases, it does look a bit premature to go to the beach in droves.

The beaches/water are the cleanest now that they have been in 15 years.

I have gone several times clean smell and enjoyable.

But if a person has a scared/paranoid mentality, best to stay home.

Cleanest now that they have been in 15 years...hell,s bells what was the water like then....it,s still filthy....clean smell and enjoyable....with all due respects sir you need to take your dark glasses off :sad:

I swim at Dongtan beach reguarly.

Likewise,have never had a problem.

Seconded. Over all of my regular visits to Thailand before the China virus, I would have swum hundreds of times at Dongtan beach, Jomtien, with never a problem. Used to love swimming the length of the long line of floats, but last time I was there most of these floats had been removed.

"Come and visit Pattaya," he gushed. "It's 100% safe!"

I guess it was a language barrier issue and many tourists have packed their stuff.

In this Sat-Tues 4-Day extended long weekend, traffic had started picking up on Saturday.  Can still find occasional parking spots on Saturday 

 

Sunday and Monday were the peak period.  Long line of traffic in entire stretch along Jomtien Beach road in both directions on Saturday and Sunday. 

 

Tuesday morning,  they started packing for the return journey,  by Tuesday afternoon most had been on the road heading out town.  Tuesday evening,  all return to normal. 

 

Under the Thai travel pattern  ?   

The forum photo 5 days ago showing bumper-to-bumper traffic to Pattaya was purely BS for the fools.

Why would anybody go to the beach there? Last time I swam in the filthy water in Jomtien I caught a skin disease! 

 

Each to his/her own. 

 

I have swam in Jomtien Beach and Dongtan Beach a number of times already.

 

Have swam in about 20 beaches all over Thailand as well.   OK for me. 

Yet NOT once had I swam in Pattaya Bay.
