Pattaya's tourist police chief has told the Thai media that he and his men are ready, willing and able to help foreign tourists stranded in Thailand and members of the public just as they always have been. 

 

Pol Lt-Col Somboon Eua-samanmaitree said his branch of the force continued to liaise with all relevant authorities in ensuring the safety of all concerned at tourist sites especially on weekends and holidays.

 

He conceded that it may not be all that busy but tourists were still the priority. In addition he has been encouraging good PR  informing people about any changes - such as closing times - due to the pandemic. 

 

Everyone could call the 155 hotline to ask for help and that includes the many tourists still stranded in the area due to the pandemic. 

 

Pattaya Update News put this figure at "1,6000" so it's anyone guess what that means, notes Thaivisa. 

 

Pol-Col Somboon said that the highest proportion of stranded tourists were Chinese.

 

But contact with the hotline had been almost non-existent. 

 

He put this down to what he said was the fact that most stranded "tourists" in Pattaya were retirees or people married to Thais.

if both these statements are true, then it follows that most retirees or people married to Thais in Pattaya are Chinese
