These stories are good.....To remind people that the destroyed lives will be 1,000 times worse than a disease with a 99.8 recovery rate..... 

When you actually think about that  - 50% closed - you realise the impact of this total nonsense. When the historians look back at this, they will condemn the governments of the world for the near des

I completely agree. They should be writing about the positive affects of covid. Instead of 27,000-30,000 sex workers out of work they should write, "30,000 families, moms and children reunited" or "La

The problem with Pattaya beach is that the bottom is mud. I guess at some time it was mangroves or else it is sludge from  pollution. When they did the beach they should have dug up the bottom and put sand there. Maybe the floods washing sand in the water will do the job for them.

what sort of lonely pathetic losers go to an "online digital bar" and buy a bar girl online drinks using a 13" laptop from some 20,000km away? What's the world coming to!

Last time I went to Pattaya, before corona, Soi 7 and 8 were not doing well. I doubt corona is entirely to blame for the closure. Probably finished it off though.

Buakhao is where the action moved to.

Corona was the straw that broke the camels back,a lot of ex pats came to thailand when it was 70baht =£1 now its 40,london prices in a 3rd world country.

Correct IMO. Loads of divorced guys with half the money from selling the house arrived in LOS as very wealthy in baht.

LOS was wonderful at 70 to the pound, but not nearly so much at 45 or lower.

Was 55 when I arrived, now 40, I don't really economise but still my savings/investments in the UK continue to accrue. happy days for me. Most expats I know are in the same boat.
