It's not just Walking Street...all of Beach and Second roads are like this. The central Pattaya tourist district is basically dead...you walk around and it looks like a neutron bomb went off...the buildings are still standing but there are no people around. East Pattaya is still a hive of activity, however.

The good part about current situation is if you Have a car and drive around Pattaya can guarantee no traffic jams to bother you these days,unless off course you run into a flood

Not unthinkable at all !   You only needed a little intelligence, just 3 years back, to realize Walking Street was becoming like elsewhere in Thailand.   How ?   Just count the number of 7/11s and similar that had opened up.   My Thai family could work it out.

Uh?

A comment from someone who probably never visited Walking Street. :whistling:

How could a place be a brothel when there is no "sexual activity" ?

 

And yes, maybe still a very few short-time rooms on this street, but marginal cases and the huge majority of businesses on Walking Street are places without sex, when not without nudity.

I'm normally in favor of building new roads to ease traffic congestion since most Thai cities are notoriously poorly planned (there are exceptions) and don't have enough road surface, but converting a walking street into a road for cars is just silly.

 

How did they come up with that idea? Besides, unlike Bangkok, Pattaya actually has plenty of side streets you can use to go around. I remember encountering no difficulties driving around walking street and emerging on the other side without driving through it.

I walked along that street once. It was a disgusting that denigrated the working men and women and displayed some of the most disgraceful aspects of Thai "acceptance".  I sincerely hope that red-light areas like this are permanently shut down and transformed into more family friendly areas. Not only that, I wish any foreigners who think such places are "good" just return to their own countries and face the music when they get arrested for the sex offences they are probably hiding from... That walking street was disgusting. I hope I never see it again.

Shutting down Walking Street,Pattaya`s biggest tourist attraction ? Dream on.
