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).

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

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

There may be less visitors from Bangkok this weekend because no political demos are planned for Bangkok till next Wednesday.

That said, Terminal 21 has a food fair on this weekend and there were big queues to get into the parking areas this lunchtime. Paris and London floors for those who are interested in stuffing their face.

Queues in the food fair area as well. Glancing in, I didn't notice any unusual foods but it seemed many Thais were finding things pleasing to their palates anyway.

Good effort, but the poster doesn't think Pattaya has any sand on which to picnic, any restos, or any place to shop. So I think it's hopeless.

I really don't know how anyone can say there is nowhere to shop in Pattaya.

Central Festival on  Beach Road also have a food promo event going on; as well as plenty of food stalls set up opposite along the prom.

Next Friday and Saturday will be busy for the fireworks shows.

Well with that and the alleged poor air quality he's probably got Pattaya mixed up with Chiang Mai.

There are no tour buses which usually take the blame so what is the reason?  Automobiles obviously contribute.

And where are farmers burning near Pattaya?

 

Just asking as it is inconsistent some days are clear and beautiful then the next is not.

Just checked AQI for Bangkok and Pattaya. Average for BKK about 15 pts higher than Pats. Rama IV is way high, fwiw

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

Or maybe keeping masks on because of that virus thing going around... maybe don't believe gov numbers?

Reporter might have asked the tourists rather than making assumptions....
