 Another troll you don't need to feed xylophone.

Your much appreciated ,up to date , telling things as they really are posts give the true picture of Patong goings on.

Keep it up.

Much appreciated "happyas"........yes and I suppose I am "guilty" of feeding the trolls and must stop doing that, but sometimes their accusations and assumptions  (as in another poster) border on insulting!

I have been in Phuket prison on remand for a traffic accident in which 2 local underaged kids died on a motorbike who crash into me. 19 months waiting in prison for my day in court. 300,000 bail bond

I'm sure you mean well by your post LaoPo, so I will take it as constructive, however there are some things which seem to pass by your understanding.   I am also sure there are many other ex

Probably this speedboat your friend was talking about.

There were actually 2 jetskis under the boat.

Many sad memories from then but it was amazing how the people recovered and got on with it.

The "other poster' seems to have gone to play elsewhere now and this newer one now has opinions that are so far off the mark, that you need not entertain him either.

Those who insult etc only do so because they have nothing to contribute.

Keep the up to date reports coming and ignore the few fools that go against you.

Relating to the statement that only Bangla mongers stay in the low-rent guesthouses, that's not what I've personally observed. While staying a week in a 500/night guesthouse recently, I noticed that nearly all of the guests were eastern European couples. Looking around at the neighboring guesthouses, nearly all of the traffic going in and out was the same demographic.

 

The statement that there's simply no land left in Patong upon which to build a new hotel is just not true. Looking down on the town from the higher elevations, one can clearly see 3 very large tracts of undeveloped land all within a 2 minute or less walk from Jungceylon, which would be more or less the center of town. There's also another large tract just south of Macro. Additionally, anyone who's been here for any length of time knows that it's not uncommon to raze recently built structures in order to put up something new. I think the smart money (e.g. large hospitality corporations) is waiting to see what Patong's future holds in terms of a casino or other unique draw, before committing to any large-scale development.

 

Now, as an exception to the "cheap-Chen" rule of low-spending Chinese, in Big C yesterday we joined the checkout line behind a group of Chinese who were searching their collective pockets to come up with the money to pay the bill. Usually, it's just a couple of hundred baht, but this group handed over a wad of bills, and my wife and I looked at each other in amazement as the cashier counted out eleven 1,000 baht notes! Looking at their cart, is was full of what looked to be normal bagged groceries. Couldn't have been electronics or cell phones, as those have to be paid upstairs. My only conclusion is that they were buying up the higher-end dried fruit to be packed into a suitcase and brought back to China. Still - that 11,000 baht wasn't much of a benefit to the local economy.

Have a look at the land you are talking about up close, cost a fortune to develop it

There is still some overpriced undeveloped land at the north end of the third road

Just lost interest in the absolute garbage some people post, more interesting topics elsewhere with intelligent none trolling posts to respond to:partytime2:

Phuket jock is the only person posting on this topic who probably owns and operates a business in Patong and knows what he is talking about

Anyone who thinks that asking people who manage businesses or owns them for information about the businesses they own or operate will be given accurate information does not have a clue, probably has been previously employed as a manager and lost his/her job for giving out information they should not have

 

Anyone with a good profit making business will tell you want you want to here or miss inform you

Business managers rarely know everything about a business, they are just employed to manager staff and can be sacked at any time the owner wants to, they are just another paid employee and some think they are a lot more important than they really are

 

What wake patong will still be thriving long after i and all the other posters on this topic are dead and gone, the same as this topic will be, so i will not post on it again, its a total waste of time, not because the amature trolls, stalkers worry me

So he is the only member posting here who owns and operates a business here in Patong. I guess I must have been invisible to you when I have made repeated posts about our business in Patong. And I have always been truthful about the ups and downs of our business. No BS here.

 I noticed a while back that The Deli, near the Post Office had gone. I rarely used it as I always thought the goods were over-priced.

 

I suppose the western deli style things in Makro and Big C would have affected them over time.

 

I always preferred Patong Meats for my treats.

Spot on Max but unfortunately you forgot about LIK  who has been in business in Patong

for a very long time and now finds himself in the unfortunate position that all his Patong

businesses are in the Nanai area which has sadly been decimated by the greedy antics of

the tuktuk and taxi mafia. You are also correct about the wake nonsense wakes are for when

something/one dies and Patong is very much alive and kicking. This thread means nothing

to anyone with a brain.

I think the wake should be for the old thread, not Patong itself. Perhaps there will be a wake for this thread soon as it's just heading in exactly the same direction but about 100 pages short!

That's sad to hear. I only go down that way when I have to pick up undelivered registered post. I had thought it still open. I used it for years before Carrefor came along, also the German Deli on the other side of the road. I thought his prices were OK, for sure cheaper than the now Villa Market (not that it lasted long in Patong). I liked the Thai Chinese owner, always helpful. I stopped going when the one way system started, ,meant I had to drive all round town, only to find no parking space. I knew he had been trying to sell for quite a few years. Just too much BIG competition, now a bad location, no parking area, disaster.

He did very, very well for many years. Ripping off all cheese-lovers in Patong because he had a monopoly on foreign cheese.

I won't shed too many tears.
