Thank you general….soi 6 is just grossly overpriced….used to be 700b all in for an onsite indulgence…..now the standard is 1000…..and even 1500.

 

hope this lowers prices back to normal levels.

 

 

I think it's more likely to increase the price

To say that this will ruin Pattaya is an over exaggeration.

 

All the older Americans will remember that Vegas  used to be called sin city.

 

It had the moniker of an adult only location that had drinking, gambling and prostitution.  Pattaya does not have the legal gambling but it has everything else.

 

Toronto had the Yonge street strip with it's hookers and strip clubs that caused many people to stay away.  They cleaned it up and big businesses came and it is a big tourist location and generates more money

 

 

The challenge is that while a few bars might get a lot of money it is more favourable to have a family oriented location.

 

There is nothing wrong with having walking street and maybe a few little streets off the side.  

 

What is a problem is that because of the reputation that families that have more money to spend and have kids that generate more income will stay away.

 

They can still have the sex and such all they are trying to do is make it more central and less obvious and less distracting.  

 

A bar is a drinking establishment that too many farang go to get plastered and make nuisance.  The law is already set all they are doing is enforcing it.

The great plan to fail!   Will go the way of Subic and Angeles City, shut down ghost town, then start all over albeit, with no real investment. Just the next wave of bar owners trying to scratch a living with 99 out of 100 failing within a year or less.  

 

There is far too much coastline away from the septic mess that is Pattaya to economically convert this one contaminated stretch to Central Festival Land!

 

So, smart plan, delete this money making machine and then move on to the next.  More shopping centers, more McThai, more pseudo-Japanese food sellers.

 

What historically made this place a tourist destination can be reduced to another shopping center full of imported stuff over-priced, due to heavy handed import duty, and those tourist numbers will see little point in stopping here for what it will become. 

 

Sad to see the bull in the China shop in the works!

If actually enforced I am thinking more girls will be strolling along the beach and napping at love hotels.

I wonder if the big bar (Miami) that is now being built on Walking Street will be allowed to open.

I think it's a good thing but as others have said, this crackdown will likely go the same way as others have in the past

 

I think the authorities see a little economic hardship as a small price to pay for ridding themselves of the scourge of cheap-ass, sex-starved deviants from abroad cruising their streets for sexual services and attracting ridicule from around the world.

 

The girls can get jobs elsewhere or simply sell their wares online through FB, LINE or whatever.

A lot of girls already do this and that's one reason why there are so many complaints about the standard of women heading downhill in these establishments. The hot girls already know the score - why dance all night for losers or risk being videoed  when you can put up a profile on social media or a messaging app and get the guy you actually fancy who's actually willing to pay you what you want???

Low visibility, high conversion ratios and profits

Easiest way to kill it all off, set up checkpoints on Walking Street and other streets with CCTV cameras trained on the entrance. Make sure that everyone entering removes glasses and hats 

 

....then

 

make the footage available online.

 

Most sex tourists don't want it known that they come here to pay for sex with prostitutes.

They hate being videoed in the bars in case their wives or families back home find out about it.

And much more chance to get or give something you really don't want to get or give.

The Las Vegas thing was quite a while ago, as in like  in 1951:

 

http://www.worldnextdoor.org/magazine/february-2014/history-of-legalized-prostitution/

 

 

 

 

"One of the biggest fallacies that exists today is that prostitution is legal in the big cities of Las Vegas and Reno. I learned that in 1951, Reno and Las Vegas voted to close their red light districts and used the public nuisance laws to do so. Now, as the law states, prostitution is only legal in Nevada counties that have a population less than 400,000. In fact, prostitution is illegal anywhere outside the licensed brothels, including “street walking”. Women and customers can be fined up to $1000 and sentenced to 6 months in jail for a first time offense."
