Geez ........ I hope the daytime gentlemens clubs don't get targeted ,they too offer all the same services.  How can they expect the tourist dollar will increase??? Alls that will happen is these bars will go broke by not being able to meet their rents and leases ,what will they be replaced with ????? takeaway food ? t shirts shops? computer shops ? Bit discrimatory to target only soi 6 , least the place was sectionzed to that activity .  So what soi 7 next then the boys town gay area. Gotta luv these numbwits for upstairs for thinking . Theres huge aeroplane hanger style sheds behind big C in Naclua which conduct live on stage sex shows to the japanese and chinese tourists  who arrive in busloads....every night !!!!!! 2000b a viewing one would think that sort of thing would be more damaging to Thailands image than people having few drinks following a rubdown or some thai girl girating her hips on stage. If  anything the place is becoming more unwelcoming by the day ,.as if I woud let my kids play in the run down playgrounds that have much broken equipment and glass in the grass, swim in the highly polluted sea which the mayor openly acknowledges has more than 24000 cubic meters of effluent and waste pumped into it each month !!!! and lets go drive on the absolute lawless roads ?????lets better not even go there!!

any guess as to who owns the huge "aeroplane hanger style sheds"???

3 guesses, first 2 don't count... :saai:

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..

I think its trying to become more respectable and loose the title of the worlds biggest sleeze city.  It is known around the world for mothing more than sex tourists and prostitution.  They have an enormous task to rid the place of sleezy tourists and restore a little pride.  Will take a couple of decades but they have started and giving it a shot.  I say rip into the place and clean it up as it is dragging Thailand down the sewer.

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...

Do they prefer tourists who actually go in the bars and spend, on average, 100 USD per day, or Chinese tours who only look at the bars, from outside, and spend, on average, 10 USD per day?

Instead of trying to transform Pattaya into one more soulless mom and pop beach resort, they'd better put it back as it was 20 years ago...

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.

So you want to keep the girls as prodtitutes?  Is that genuine concern for them?

Thaivisa rightly or wrongly have used the Soi 6 stock photo to highlight the thread and whilst that photo is light on girl numbers it highlights the skimpy provacative attire which in the past was behind the closed doors in soi 6. It wasnt in your face and frankly a family could walk the soi unknowingly and would see little. Now its in your face with the same facebook owners promoting no underwear parties etc etc etc.....

It draws attention to themselves and heres the end result sadly opening at 6pm. I liked the odd afternoon down the 6 always a good crack but at 6pm I'm always looking to move on and not start there. It may not last but you get the impression last 12 months times are changing so it just may be this time...

Pattaya will not survive as a family/beach destination. Are they really so stupid that they don't know why people are visiting Pattaya.

who would want to go on holiday  in place where the party doesn't start until 6 pm when you can visit the neighbor country and party nonstop.

No they are not stupid but you need to understand that less (well less) than 1% of all tourists to Thailand come to Pattaya but the reputation (rightly deserved !) puts off millions of visitors who believe Pattaya is Thailand. Remove the blott on the landscape and perhaps Thailand gets 10 million more tourist visitors huge dollar income for the country compared to the miniscule amounts in comparison that come to Pattaya. In response to your post they have to start "somewhere"

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.
 
 

Doesn't work that way. The price will jump another 50 % to compensate for lost business

They know why  people are visiting Pattaya and all the other spots that sell sex and these are the people that they are trying to get to go to other places like Cambodia or Vietnam. The powers to be believe if you get rid of the customers- there is no reason for the bars to exist or if you put pressure on the bars then the customers won't come. There is a direct correlation between the Visa/Entry crackdown and the  entertainment crackdown. This is the Thai way. Slowly but surely- they block the path by a means of less resistance and eventually they get their way.
