Pattaya Go-Go clubs and bars targeted in new crackdown

Recommended Posts

Ditto to many of the comments above, this is about tightening the screws on the bars in terms of getting more money. It won't mean that many bars will be replaced with knick knack shops or what have you. I would bet even with their licenses revoked they could continue given they paid the authorities off. The 6 pm opening times could also be ignored but the fines would be another corrosive element. I can see that this would all lead to a gradual erosion of Pattaya the party zone, but there is nothing drastic being suggested by 6 pm closing times and no more new licenses. You have to wonder how many places actually have licenses anyway. You also have to wonder if the police really understand that they are in danger of killing their golden laying goose with each added layer of fines and hassles. Fewer bars will leave them fewer places to collect "fines" from.

Haha   Somewhere has to be the sex capitol of the world,, they need to promote it more,,  Get more tourists coming for sex and everyone will be happy.. the bar owners,  working girls,   restaurants, etc etc.   There are hundreds of family towns and cities  that families can go to now..   and no one goes there for the beach that's for sure,   as that is one of the worst beaches I have ever been to.....

Get real Pattaya,, you have something to be world famous for,, use it.. and everyone likes sex,, well everyone except my ex wife..  haha.

They also want to start cracking down on the prostitues in Bangkok, Phuket etc.  Sex tourism is no good for Thailand it breeds crime and corruption. There are plently of available beautiful ladies who work hard at real jobs in Thailand. Bar Girls are bone idle and lazy. Time there was a real big move to stamp out prostitution in Thailand. Let the sex tourists go to other countries in S.E. Asia.

I can understand it, but I don't understand it. Pattaya was and is and could continue to be a huge money maker for everybody.  Just call a spade a spade and let things be like they were in oh I would say 2004 or 2005.  Soi 6 was a fine place for a quiet break from the afternoon heat, as was the welcom inn a few sois over.  Why in the world are they making the place so less friendly for so many people that would go there?

You can bet that the people who make these laws have plenty of money, if they relied on places like Soi 6 etc to help fill their pockets, it would

be an entirely different story.

So what? Better that than demean themselves sleeping with depraved farangs for 1000 baht.

really ?  most of the girls come to work because the families are so poor, nearly all the money they make goes back to support their families ans kids.. and there are no jobs for most of them, if they went back home.., 

Why do you think they came here ???

And depraved Farangs ??   Many of older ones have lost a wife through death or divorce and end up taking one of these girls for a wife.

Which is what most of the girls are  looking for... No different than any other girl working in a hotel, beauty shop, supermarket, etc etc.

And a girl can make 1000B an hour,   or chose to work 12 hours at a 'real'  job for 300 B  a day...

With all the headliners obviously directed at bars, girls dancing in shorts, and massage parlors I have to wonder if this country is converting to Islam or at least trying to appease the religion of pieces.. I hope the Chinese tour groups are paying well or otherwise they are putting another nail into the coffin of tourism..

Yawn.  Time for another unofficial fundraising effort. 

Yup! Meanwhile - Pattaya continues to be a mecca for ruthless criminals, scam artists, con-men and a myriad other low-life scum......

This is part of the squeeze the authorities are putting on all  bars/clubs/GoGo's that sell sex.  The police are not the instigators- it is the Pattaya Administration which is military run. They do not care if all Western single tourists stop coming to Thailand. Their goal is to gentrify all the areas that attract people they do not want. Eventually, all these places will either go broke; close themselves; relocate or simply not have their permits renewed

 

Many people say it's not real but they are wrong- the Government does not like this type of business because what they sell is overt and gives Thailand a bad name by attracting criminals and other less desirable people.When it is over- most of these places will have gone out of business or relocated to the dark side or Jomtien and be more discrete. The powers that be see more money in Chinese tourism; Asean tourism and getting the middle class and Hi-so Thais to come to Pattaya. None of these groups want the current bars or would be customers. The investments being made in Pattaya and other areas of Thailand are in Malls/Shopping areas; boutique type shops and restaurants. 

 

In addition, you will also see the demise of Nana Plaza and Soi Cowboy in Bangkok simply because these bars cannot afford to remain in that location and make any money and the owner of the land will take the investment money  and  sell out. It doesn't matter who has the Master lease or sub leases. It is the land owners who control everything.

This is all tickety boo Mr General, but what happens the the girls? Will they now be educated to a standard where they can go and gain a reputable job in society as result  to now being more or less rendered redundant? Nope.

Carry on building temples.
