Pattaya: TAT claim "lively" tourism during long weekend saw 90% of hotel rooms booked

Pattaya's Tourism Authority of Thailand representative Pinnart Charoenphon told the media that 90% of hotel rooms were booked out for the long holiday weekend between July 25th and 28th. 

 

She said that 70% of hotels in Pattaya were open for business. 

 

Thai domestic tourism had been "kheuk khak" (lively) in Pattaya and Chonburi as a whole with lots of tourists visiting Pattaya. 

 

It was better than the previous long weekend earlier in the month.

The Phase 1 "TAT Hot Deal @ Pattaya and Chonburi" promotion is now over.

 

But Phase 2 of the promotion will be open from August 16th to September 25th. 

 

Vouchers can be used for booking rooms up until December 24th.

The big question is despite the 90% of available rooms booked was there actually a 90% occupancy or where some bookings not taken as is typical probably closer to 70% of the 70% of hotels open but that's just my opinion .

There were a number of Thai families with kids enjoying the pool at my Pattaya hotel.

Also, as I noted in another thread, I was surprised at how many Thai families and couples I saw on Walking Street.  First time I've ever seen Thais in the majority in that area.

Is that including the hotels which went bust during the last 4 months?

No, this WAS the high season. Just one weekend.

Any beach trash pics to prove this is true? Was it 90% of the hotels in that government program that offers discounts? I don't think the pattaya area has had 90% full in years. It sounds unreasonably high even most years. Am I wrong?

It's said above. 90% of 70% of hotels open. And we all know how Tat calculates so its should be 70% of 50% hotels that are open.

I was in Pattaya on Tuesday, it was really quiet.

 

Sunday and Monday the Rayon region was almost deserted. Koh Samet was quiet also, only Thai people.

Probably listed as booked by the owners so when people ask about a room they can say fully booked apart from one room which is available at a higher than normal rate. People will think oh it’s full so we better take the room or we might not have a place to stay ! Then next person asks and is scammed the same way.
