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 are less local tourists in Pattaya over this long holiday because local people opted for cooler weather and went North. However they will be disappointed with still warm weather over there, as it is warm at the moment.

You are likely correct.... with a few more days to play with, and a nice shiny new motorway free to use, they can go further afield from Bangkok.

no tourists in Pattaya or jomtien..are they having a laugh drove up and down the length of jomtien beach today to get a parking spot...just sayin...

I don't know if you had noticed but it's a long Holiday weekend. Suggest you go on Tuesday and you will find it empty/Dead. Not unlike the rest of Pattaya. It'll continue stay like that till the next holiday. I do believe that to be Christmas/New year. Then what larks. As no parking again.

I dunno about that, maybe. Somewhat fewer, I'd say, but after all they were all just here for Loy Kratong, might like a change of scene. This isn't exactly one of the traditional holidays but rather one manufactured by government fiat. Hear any holiday music being played around, getting people in the festive mood? Nope.

 

Web marketing content writer probably wanted an angle to appeal to our large and vocal TVF Air Quality Monitoring bureau.

 

Still, it was far more than just a usual weekend and helpful. Some places were packed with locals, e. g., the food fair in T21 and Hops, to name just two.

Now I'm reading it wasn't really bad air..........

 

EVERY single country wants more money, not less.   Every country spins its media so it doesn't pin the nail on their own head....which means for the last 100 years I can't trust anything I read anyhow...

 

long weekends are always the same.  people go back home.  nobody has parents in pattaya....5555

 

and the odds of their house being south of pattaya is almost zero.

Wrong... it will be packed for the Fireworks on Friday and Saturday.

Another whole 2 days. How wonderful for all the closed down businesses. With everyone sitting on the beach watching the fireworks and not spending a penny, or a BHT as the case maybe.

 

I have been to one of those Firework nights. Yes full of peeps with 99% of the Thais bringing their own food and drinks. 

 

Come on then how many peeps are there now a Monday after the long weekend. Please don't tell me it's empty yet again.

Locals love the mediocre food in there. Never worked out why. 

 

Beer is good though. I suppose if you drink enough the food starts to taste better.

Another Music festival. What joy that might be. How I love a bit of Thai head banging noise. Note to self. Get down to Patts with my ear plugs.

 

Sorry about my comment not being completely true, but it was around 90% correct. That's of cause they haven't removed the For Sale/Rent signs that adorn most of the shops/Bars/restaurants.
