Pattaya boomtown - Russian and Chinese "quality tourists" flooding back as resort becomes hub of Sport Tourism, claims TAT

PATTAYA: -- An upbeat Thai Rath reported from Koh Larn yesterday quoting a Pattaya Tourism Authority representative that Russians and Chinese tourists were visiting in droves.

 

And the huge numbers were arriving despite it being the low season and raining every day.

 

Suladda Sarutilawan of Pattaya TAT said that the government's crackdown on "zero dollar" tours was seeing a marked rise in "quality tourists" from China.

 

She said they were spending lots and boosting the local economy at a time when visitors are usually harder to find.

 

Suladda said that Russian visitors were now coming like they used to years ago.

 

She further credited the rebranding of Pattaya as a hub for Sports Tourism saying events like the triathlon last weekend and the marathon set to take place in July are attracting thousands who might not normally come to the resort.

 

She said that 10,000 are expected in town for the marathon on July 16th and 300-400 of those would be those quality Chinese she spoke of.

Maybe an element of BS but at least they are trying to reboot the image. Nice to see a positive story that does not involve drink, bad driving, violence ( or all 3 ) for a change.

Say what you like about them, but they can certainly push the envelope when it comes to imagination

One thing for sure, those Chinese tour busses are causing huge traffic problems on the major roads and along many smaller sois around Pattaya.

 

Did the Chinese tour company that got their busses confiscated a while ago, get their busses back?

I suspect a large amount of money passed hands and the busses were quietly driven out of the compound!

 

Either way, more road trouble ahead!

"She said that 10,000 are expected in town for the marathon on July 16th and 300-400 of those would be those quality Chinese she spoke of."

 

.4% are quality and 99.6% are zero dollar.

There must be more than one Pattaya in Thailand because the one I was in over the last 2 weeks is as dead as I've seen it.

 

No Russians in droves.

No Chinese in droves.

Nothing in droves except droves of empty Hotel Rooms.

So they have cleaned out those cheap Charlie and summing tourists in Pattaya and replaced them with quality.  The bars and girls will be wrapped now they can triple their prices.

Yes all the major world sports are clambering to have their premium events moved to Pattaya.
