Fearing military, Pattaya rushes to eradicate sin

Recommended Posts

anyway, despite his high aspirations, he doesnt seem to be about to do anything new so I dont think anyone need worry, at least until the army turns up

Pattaya: clean up the beach, legalise gambling as a special zone. Open some <deleted> off government owned casinos and the town will be swimming in gold in no time. Then use that money to regenerate the area, build a tram line, well build side walks, promenade etc

Get the hookers off the street and let the bars fill the need. The babes in the bars need their new cellphones and motorbikes. And I almost forgot, they need to send 2,000 baht of their 40k back home to mom to take care of their babies.

These girls are in it for the fun, drugs and toys..... Don't kid yourself

Walked through the Coconut Club last night and there would have been at least 200 girls looking for business.

I much prefer these girls who leave me alone than the street sellers who annoy me constantly.

Trying to have a quiet drink and a chat is mission impossible.

My days in Pattaya are numbered but not because of prostitution, because of being constantly annoyed by the street sellers.

“I told [the police officers] that the number [of arrests] this year has to be more than last year,” said Pol Col Suppatee, adding he was aiming to totally eradicate street prostitution. “This is my version of returning happiness to Pattaya town." Pffffffffffffffffft happiness huh? Who's going to be happy?

I guess some people will like this fantasy, but the reality is that the tourists dont mind the street workers (apart from the ones that are thieves) and walking street is now quite an attraction because of its sordid reputation. what the tourists dont like and the reason many dont return is the polluted beaches and sea. but this isnt an attempt to try an attract tourists, this is just about face

I can see a lot of people like your post so clearly you are not alone in your opinion but I still strongly disagree with you that tourists don't mind street walkers,, of course they do. Ok, a group of blokes out on the beer would not care but most others do, especially those with kids.

I would never dream of taking anyone down there with their kids in tow, or any older person, or my mother, or ay one else to be blunt. To me the place is a seedy hell hole only fit for dirty perverts or those seeking to pay for the services of some young lady (or guy).

Get rid of it all I say,

The only reason I come to Pattaya is for the hookers. Why are these people ruining paradise?

The only thing I admire more than blatant, well executed sarcasm, is brutal honesty. If there was more of it the forum, and the country, would be a better place. thumbsup.gif

Thanks mate !

Rubbish. Nobody believes that, except maybe a born-again God botherer who comes to Thailand to try and save these "poor young girls" from a life of prostitution.

The only reason he would make such a stupid and outlandish statement would be if he was told to do so.

It's interesting that this news comes to us from Phuket. Also the various comments on the lines of, "They,ve cleaned up Phuket; now it's time to start on Pattaya."

I've read numerous articles about the Phuket beaches being cleared, and the taxi mafia sorted out, but I've yet to read that Phuket has been effectively cleared of its prostitutes and ladyboys, let alone that sin has been eradicated. That really would be something in Thailand's second sex haven.

Perhaps someone could give us chapter and verse on this.

I just told my wife and she laughed. What about the Issan girls? They not make money selling beer?

My wifes other comment, was that all the stupid farang go there.

At some point this middle class dominate value will find resistance.

Some of the legal activities need to be cleaned up, but to eradicate what has provided many a income for many years will not make everyone happy.

It's that kind of regional prejudice that perpetuates the negative stereotypes that unfairly tarnish hard-working, honest, beautiful people with the wrong brush.

What about the North girls? The South girls? The Bangkok girls? There are prostitutes from all over Thailand.

The majority of working girls in Pattaya are from Isaan, but then the Isaan region pretty much makes up for half of Thailand's population (26 million odd people). So it's somewhat disproportionate.

The large majority of Isaan women are disgusted by what they hear about women selling themselves in Pattaya and other tourist destinations. If you know anything about Isaan-Lao culture, you'll know of the reserved, frigid approach that surrounds intimate interaction.

When I lived in Samui and Chiang Mai, I met girls selling sex from all over Thailand, many from the south and places in the north like Lampang and Chiang Rai.

Bangkok has some of the worst poverty in Thailand, see Klong Toey slum for reference. Where there is poverty and poor women with kids to support you will find prostitution, drug abuse and alcoholism.

Absolute rubbish. You live and type this tripe.

Love the way u throw the prostitution word around. You typical self rightious preacher.

Try actually working here and maybe supporting child or family. You know nothing about Thailand. Never seen such rubbish posted befor.

Speaking of a family place. The last time I was in Pattaya, I had two of the prettiest girls talking to me on Walking Street. Now here comes Mr. Smart Traveling Man with his wife and kids in Tow. The kids are crying about something they want to do, and the wife looks downright pissed off. The two girls and I smile at him, and he just kind of has this pathetic look on his face.....something like..."Hey, I wonder if I can sneak out for an hour or so later on tonight, but I tried that last night and the wife almost divorced me." then he thinks..."Next year the wife is taking the kids to Disneyland...I am scheduling a 2 week business trip to Singapore (via Pattaya)

That is what you call...taking hamburger to a Steak dinner.

The concept of ""Eradicating sin"" is interesting .

It sounds very noble and ambitious , depending on what Sin is defined as I suppose ?

Certainly , shutting down the sinful practices of paying for sex and watching young woman strip ( might reasonably be assumed ) as aspects of this target.

But is it?

Lets consider Pattaya .....the place is largely structured on girls who do this .

Not just Ladyboys and street walkers .

The Go Go bars and bars have woman who are happy to sin for reward.

Are these places not considered sinful ?

And if they are will they be targets too?

If not is the statement just an exercise of something other than ""eradication""

And what will happen to the shops and businesses and food outlets , bars and restaurants , and all associated with the flesh trade?

Will the city be able to withstand the changes?

Many people seem to enjoy sinning .

Will stopping them help Thailand or Pattaya in general?

And the families who get sent money upcountry will they be as easily appeased come election time?

Obviously the notion to do good is in itself a well meaning one.

But ramifications may not have been completely for seen ?

Pattaya isn't a very nice sea side place on its own.

But add a spicy night life it's a very competitive place.

I have an idea that sinning is the primary reason the economy there exists .

But take away the red light establishments and close bars that have girls doing tricks and really it will be a very big call.

Massive loss of tourists and economy.

I think it will be very brave to continue the ""eradication "" program indeed.

Time will tell.

Sadly, the greatest sin might be inflicting poverty on already struggling woman ....and their families who gain from their sinful ways.

No, this news comes from Bangkok, specifically from the Bangkok Post, which is a news supplier as well as a publisher. The Phuket News is one of the newspapers which has the rights to stories from the Bangkok Post. The Phuket News states that clearly in this and other stories it uses from the Bangkok Post service. Here is the actual link to the actual Phuket News source, and you can see clearly where it got the story in the first place. The Phuket News had no part in this story except that it printed it.
