Pattaya a tourist ghost town as strong storm hits the resort

PATTAYA: -- Pattaya beaches were deserted Wednesday as severe stormy weather hit the resort.

 

Siam Chon news reported that Jomtien beach was almost completely devoid of tourists as high winds and rough seas wreaked havoc.

 

The Pattaya Harbor master set red flags at half mast meaning small craft had to stay in port.

 

Tourist operators kept their craft in safe places as the storm took hold from late morning. It is expected to be stormy well into today, Thursday.

Wednesday was also a no beach umbrella day though it was unlikely that it would have been much fun to sit on the beach in such a storm.

 

The storm, caused by a low pressure sector over Myanmar hit a great swathe of Thailand all the way from Kanchanaburi through Bangkok and out to Trat on the Cambodian border.

Hold the front page...

Tourists wishing to enjoy the sun, sand and sea avoiding a storm ravaged beach.

Now that's what I call investigative reporting

What the h*ll does one expect? That tourists are enjoying their private little Songkran?

For some geezers it is the last resort.....

Yep, regular ghost town. All the tourists blew away like plastic bags on the beach

Or maybe they were in hotel rooms?

Torrential rain, driving winds and pounding waves force tourists by the thousands to lie on Pattaya and Jomtien beaches and soak up Thailand's beautiful climate.

 

Sorry, but should this have been a new thread?

I guess someone forgot to tell the shitloads of Asian and all other oblivious foreign male tourists walking/standing around smoking cigarettes all day,  about this storm.

I can't believe we missed a no beach umbrella day!  We'll have it on Friday, instead.

Finally a "Pattaya clean up" that works. Some administration officers obviously burned tons of incense and done a month long prayer.
