Pattaya Go-Go clubs and bars targeted in new crackdown

It's not far off being a ghost town already. The big question here is how are they going to regulate it and what will those regulations allow or not allow.

Having everything licensed is fine, but it defeats the object if you go too far and kill the place.

I'd heard Jomtiem was the "Ghost" town

 

where they go around "Putting the willies up each other"

 

I must have been misinformed ?

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...   

Wrong
They come to work as bar girls because they are lazy cows.

They send money back home because it's expected.

That's the truth.

The T Q on beach Rd is about to make a killing

I was in the TQ a few weeks ago at 7 pm and there was only one other customer in there. Like all the Bars in Pattaya they are very quiet compared to days gone by.

 

I have also spent far too many hours sitting at the front of 5 Star Bar watching the world go by. Very few families going past. I mean really, whats there to do for families?  Ripley's, a bit of go karting, what else is there to do for a family? Nothing I can think of.

 

Its the city of sin. Take that away it becomes the city of nothing. They do seem determined to destroy it though. All those bars closing will mean hundreds of thousands of Baht not being paid to Police. Then there will be  hundreds of people soon unemployed.

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 am sure Ze General was thinking about the cheap charlie expats when he made this decision. 

 

Genius.

they will lose so many tourists the place will be like a ghost town and all the locals who rely on them for some kind of income may turn to crime which inturn will further decrease the number of tourists .

Pattaya already has so much crime that a few hundred more would hardly be noticed.

 

It`s going to go the same way as Chiang Mai, whereas the bar owners will be put under intense pressure that these businesses will no longer be viable to run and will result in the eventual closing of them all.

 

Chiang Mai and Pattaya, that`s two down. Can anyone suggest what is left in Thailand where us old guys can still get our jollies?

I think many people look in the wrong direction when they see these "crackdowns". 

 

Pretty much everything of substance done to supposedly crackdown on corruption or the sex industry or whatever over the last few years has been about realigning the "supply chain". Making sure the cash flows in the proper direction. 

 

Add in a touch of the usual Thai establishment xenophobia towards the West (I.e. Foreigners are ok as long as they don't come from places with opinions or places that try and enforce any sorts of standards on us - like human rights of democracy) and you have a realignment of the industry to make sure the cash flows to the right people and if one gets the double benefit of squeezing out the annoying farang then all the better :)

If you imagine that all – or at least almost all – of the nightlife (including day trading) has gone dead as a Dodo; will Pattaya then look like the ideal family destination..?

Only MC Donalds will be open 24/24 :smile::smile:

This is the future of Pattaya : Mc Donalds, Starbuks coffee, HM, Ikea, etc..etc...

Same everywhere ..bad international business. Wherever you go you see the same things !

 

So in the future why going to Pattaya. The beach is very small, very dirty, noisy with all the boats, lot of traffic in the streets, pollution, ...

 

If there is no bar in the day, no Gogo's at night....  it's better to go to another place where all is better (beach, sea, tranquillity ..)

Will they close also all the bars on the beach road ? Because it is so bad to see these bars opened in the afternoon with lot of women :shock1::smile: 

I think all families are shocked (except the fathers :smile:)

I agree 

The lazy ones go to Pattaya and leave their children with the family.

The courageous ones go to the factories and take care of their children every day

They'll keep chipping away until it's all gone, most Thai cities have had their brothels closed down in the last 2 years, why should Pattaya be any different? It will all go, but it will take a few years. The only thing that can save you is a change of government to a liberal one.

Why will the families love it?

Their kids are the bread winners in the household. Lose their income & they're bac on the poverty line again.

I was being sarcastic, as the TAT have mentioned often that they want Pattaya to be family friendly.

Agree.

 

Another thing that could change it is regional war.

Of course. But not even a change of gov will stop it.

TV experts predicting the demise of tourism because of what, a few thousand visitors to soi 6 a night in high season?
That's wishful thinking at its best right there.
