Pattaya: Tourists put off going because of fears of dangerous air quality

Thai media INN reported that the long weekend in Pattaya was much quieter than normal holidays.

 

They said that tourists had been put off because of reports that particulate matter was in the air and that it was dangerous to visit.

 

The beach area in both Pattaya and Jomtien were noticeably quieter, they said. 

 

Some tourists were paying respects to a monument and were admiring the view from the top of a hill, however. 

 

INN said large areas of Pattaya had been sweathed in a smaze that could be PM 2.5.

 

This meant that visitors were wearing masks to keep out the tiny particles from their lungs. 

 

Thaivisa notes that pictures published by the media seemed to show quite a clear day.

Pattaya is far from closed down. Lots of Bangkok weekenders here today. Smog? What smog? Air fresher and cleaner in Pattaya now than its been for many years. (no Chinese coaches/less traffic).

I live on the Darkside. Very little closed. None of the bars/.restaurants that I normally visit closed. At least 2 restaurants recently opened.

Tourists from Bangkok are put off by Pattaya air quality.... tosh.

People seem to be missing the point. The Smog is just another nail in the coffin. Pattaya is closed down/dead so why would people go there.

 

I would have thought that going on a trip was to enjoy oneself. Things like having a dip in the Clean waters, picnic on the sand, and do a bit of shopping and dinning. Well in my estimation Pattaya doesn't have any of those. Unless things have changed in the last month.

Rarely do we see a post reflecting such utter cluelessness. Well done.😂
