100% agree my friend. The thing is I'm still scratching my head why I got a reprimand from TV and suspended for saying basically exactly the same thing as you, that no sane person would even slightly disagree with.  

can't say and won't say because one can not comment on the moderation on this forum without being reprimanded. All I would ask of you is is to question the reasoning behind it.

Pattaya is a Great little city.  I have lived here for many years and really enjoy it. There is no reason to 'knock' Pattaya ,  just leave if you don't enjoy it.

TAT working with The MIrror for sly tourist sales increase to Pattaya resorts. It would be interesting to see if tourism picks up in Pattaya out of Britain in the next few months. Perhaps there's a tourist slump at the moment and the Thai/English tourist partnerships want to increase sales to Pattaya?

I am no fan of any of the UK tabloids, exaggerate any report to "prove a point".  Is Pattaya the sex capital of the world? Probably not but most would be hard pushed to find an alternative unless you are a world travelling sex tourist. Certainly reporting it as such will increase the tourist numbers but not the family tourist ones.  Pattaya is what it is.  People go there for sex, drugs and the decadence. Unlikely they would go for the beaches or authentic Thai culture or food.

 

However to try to compare a report of sex venues with the abuse of thousands (talking of exaggerations!)  of girls in Rotherham is pretty pathetic.  To think that that is a "massive problem" in the UK shows how much the tabloids distort peoples views of reality.  The UK has enormous problems but to quote gangs of Muslim men (who have all been arrested and jailed some time ago) as if that was relevant beggars belief.  Try turning it on it's head and talk about all the gangs of men and women forcing kids, often their own, into the sex trade in Pattaya.  Or maybe the (non Muslim) punters rushing there to abuse them.

I thought it was a shithole,

Not at all. As the Mirror article shows, it's a fun resort for more open-minded folk.

I've lived in Pattaya for about 5 years now and must say i have to agree with all the Pattaya haters. I just hate it here.

 

I dont like the hustle and bustle of the big cities so choose to live in Pattaya but Bkk is just a 1.5 to 2 hour max ride away in a taxi if i want a taste of the city. I live on Beach road so if i want to duck over to Koh Larn, i walk out from my condo, cross Beach Road, walk out onto the beach and wave my hand. Within 2 minutes I'm on a speed boat and heading over to the island for a true tropical beach experience. There are many beautiful and challenging golf courses, a number of great restaurants, cinemas, many places to take the kids and the nightlife is fun and relaxed. The locals are fun and cheerful (as most Thai's are) and the constant ebb and flow of tourists do bring an air of adventure and expectation to the streets. My kids go to one of the best schools at a cost of less than half of similar schools back home. What makes Pattaya interesting is its diversity and its location that opens up many other options. Search for what you want and you will find it here. 

 

So yes a hate Pattaya and am bewildered why i would choose to live here. 

 

"Mafia run Pattaya" comments are just a joke. Pattaya is no different to any other Thai community in this regard. 

 

Although frustrating at times, i have found the police professional and courteous even on one occasion when i was in the wrong and being abusive to them. 

 

The only things i would like to change if i had a magic wand would be some semblance of city planning  (too late for that now), sidewalks, parks or open spaces, and i hope to God one day Thai's could just drive correctly and stick to the rules of the road (but we all know that will never happen).

 

But as always as soon as the word Pattaya is mentioned haters are going to hate. To each their own i guess. Pattaya is not perfect but it is so easy to travel around based here (Utapao to Chiang Mai, taxi to Bkk, speed boat to Koh Larn, now the ferry (fingers crossed) to Hua Hin. For me, Pattaya is more central then Bkk to explore what Thailand has to offer. It is not the be all to end all places to live.

it aint a resort.

I beg to differ. A "resort" is a "place that is a popular destination for vacations or recreation or which is frequented for a particular purpose". What is Pattaya if it's not this? Other than a "shithole" according to some, but still a shithole resort!

I think Bangkok is frequented for many different reasons, other than vacations so it, like other metropolises, doesn't fit the definition. If Pattaya is not a resort what is it (other than a shithole)?

Who gives a <deleted> what the rag the mirror says ? I wouldn't wipe my are with that fake reporting bullshit lying bastard excuse for a paper. Under achieving journalists.

 

So this article is completely untrue and Pattaya has no sex industry?

 

I think even the idiotic drunks would recognise that as being incorrect. And be careful wiping your are, especially if you read online.
