Pattaya: Tessakit on duty 24/7 to stop tourists being fleeced

A deputy mayor in Pattaya headed to Beach Road after social media was abuzz with the latest rip off filmed at the resort.

 

A group of 3-5 men had been caught on tape charging tourists to park in an area near the entrance to Walking Street by a pumping station. 

 

It is in fact free to park there as it is now all along Beach Road. 

 

Tourists both there and further along Beach Road have been coerced to pay fearing trouble if they didn't part with their money.

Ronnakit Ekkasing and his tessakit chief Jirawat were on the scene yesterday.

 

Ronnakit was blaming a group of homeless people for damaging the image of Pattaya. 

 

He explained that the area was a former site of offices that had been removed. He said that mayor Sontaya Khunpluem had decided that it was free to park there. 

 

The area would be marked out in bays for cars and motorcycles and a 24 hour tessakit (local authority) watch would be kept at the area to ensure tourists were not made to pay.

Much too late..if you leave anything alone long enough it get,s ingrained...especially here where dual pricing/ripping off to foreigners is considered acceptable and the norm :whistling:

Locals get discount, do you disagree with that? Last year, I played at Melbourne golf club, $500 a round, $200 more than an Australian guest. When I went to Disneyworld, local yanks got in at a discounted price. IN Scotland, the same happens at castles and golf courses.
