The wife and i went into Mike Mall for the first time in ages last Friday ,i think we were the only two in there (apart from staff) the malls are open and this weekend it was busy ,but  honestly Pattaya is so quiet ,so sorry for the workers who have lost their jobs ,but for us residents its nice not to have masses of traffic ,luckily our son runs an import /export company and they are busy ,

Big-CX was quite busy, and loads of traffic on the roads. Too many shopping places in Pattaya now.

The malls are still open. You also can sit on the beach. Is there anything else that motivates you to come here?

Restaurant business is cruel and the margins are usually quite thin. Even 5-10 percent drop in traffic per month could mean closure in normal times and now we are talking about 80-90 percent down. Thais just do have the buying power and prefer home cooked meals or street food anyway.

recovery will be gradual as it is dependent on tourism and hence on the virus situation in the guest countries. every country is opening up with maximum caution to minimise the spread of the second wave.

dentists are the last people you want to go to ( unless critical ) in this uncertain environment and related potential of infection.

A lot of people’s life savings are going up in smoke . It’s almost like the banks are waiting to take property and goods and will only be too happy to reset everybody to zero so they can come back to the banks and get even more debt to start up again. None of this makes any sense !

So in your wisdom, what do you suggest should be done.
