My Very First Experience and Memories of Pattaya

It feels like a dream now when I look back on my first experience of coming to Thailand, it was well over ten years ago now and things have changed a lot – both for Thailand and me personally.

A beast of a long haul flight

Even my memories of the plane journey here are very different now to when I get a plane to and from the UK when I go back to see family and friends. Roll back a decade and a long haul 12 hour flight from Heathrow to Bangkok was epic, it was unheard of to travel such distance for me. Before hand I considered a 2 and a half hour drive from London to Birmingham a long journey, now such distances I can do at a canter.

Whether it is rose tinted glasses I cannot be sure, but the plane trip seemed different. I remember seeing far more single, aging guys on the plane than is the case now. Now I absolutely see families and it’s a challenge to find the guy on his way to Pattaya for a blow out. I find the tattoos and boy band haircuts on the retirees the biggest giveaway. By virtue of the fact I am myself a Pattaya expat, I hope this gives me license to make such jokes without be torn apart on Thaivisa or another such Facebook group.

When I first traveled to Thailand it was with my younger brother, he suggested the trip to Pattaya. I was recently single and he said Pattaya would be like paradise for me. Who was I to turn down such a proposition?

Back then the international airport was Don Muang airport, so straight after the long flight you then needed to do another 2 hour taxi journey to get to Pattaya. But I enjoyed the taxi journey, for I was in awe of being in Asia. I found my energy immediately, until we arrived in Soi Baukhao.

‘Where the hell have you brought me?’

When I got out of the taxi the first thing I did was ask my brother, ‘Where the hell have you brought me?’. It was a mess, lots of overhead hanging cables, it stunk from the underground road drainage. Mt first impression of Pattaya was very bad. And then, of course, I went out in the evening into the bars and my view of Pattaya changed very quickly. I was a single guy in my late twenties so you can imagine. The women were gorgeous and all over me. My brother was right, this was paradise.

The bar scene has changed incredibly in a decade. I loved the Soi 7 and 8 adventures back then, the classic open beer bar was so much fun. Sadly these days seem numbered and are making way for air conditioned venues and nightclubs. Back in 2006 Pattaya was the stomping ground for the older Western guy, not a Russian, Chinese or Family in sight.

The Pleasant Fragrances Synonymous with Pattaya

For me though some of my biggest memories are from the smells. Wherever you went you could smell the fresh laundry from where the clothes were hanging to dry on the side of the sois. When I smell this now it immediately ignites my first memories of being in Thailand. And in the morning the chicken BBQ smell from the various food vendors found all over the Sois – it is such a symbolic fragrance of being in Thailand for me. Beautiful. Plus, and I never did find the name of the perfume, many of the women here in Thailand wear a perfume that is only found in this country, it is a local company that produces it and its much cheaper than the big brands. Because of my first hand experiences in Thailand from that first vacation, I find it a particularly sexy smell now.

Of course, the climate made a huge impact on me. Wonderful heat all day long. Thailand, from my very first vacation here, I was addicted forever. My memories of Pattaya – although certainly a little devious- I will always cherish, it was an adventure not every person gets to experience in their lifetime.

And for all you with your own memories of Pattaya from a decade ago, who cannot forget this song…

Surprising how many bars in pattaya don't have a toilet, when you gotta go you gotta go, so if your near soi 7 just use your nose to find the nearest toilet
a  five-gallon bucket, toilet seat, and shower curtain to protect toilet-goers modesty. The bucket is periodically drained into a nearby sewer, so they say.

Why is it the most humorous news articles are always from pattaya - So that's why i got no pressies on christmas day santa was rumping with his bumchum. that's got to be santa, surely. well he only comes once a year, be careful they'll be taxing it soon i'm sure. The daily news reports ...

A ladyboy had stolen 5,000 baht from the tourist called Claus on Christmas Day. He met a ladyboy who suggested sex. when the mincing was over he used the bathroom only to find on his return 5,000 bht short. she/he went off with the money, the ladyboy being on bail from a previous charge claimed the money was from services rendered.

Not as unlucky as an italian man who died on the job in pattaya 71yr.old . Police reported that a 71 year old gay Italian man died during oral sex on Sunday morning. A 22 yr old thai man said he was hired for sex. He was about to climax, completing the act with his own hand but passed out.

is there really a need for all that info. i mean what a blow that was. died by his own hand is that suicide.

Pool Tables, Dance Floors to be taxed/licensed in addition to dart boards

The Pattaya News and local business owners have sought clarification from Pattaya City Hall and the Ampur on the news that dart boards are to be licensed and taxed. Officials from city hall clarified the following:

A. The current entertainment license does NOT cover pool tables, dart boards or dance floors. A business will need BOTH licenses. All types of dart boards, pool tables, etc are included even small play versions or magnetic/electronic dart boards.

B. There is to be a separate license, which they stated is available to purchase (at this time not confirmed or price confirmed and our contacts have stated they continue to inquire about this information but cannot get a set answer.) through the Ampur.

C. You will need a separate license for each item, for instance, if you have a pool table, a dart board and a dance floor you will need 3 separate licenses.

D. The license is based PER dart board or PER pool table. So a pool hall with multiple pool tables will pay substantially higher then a beer bar with a single pool table.

E. Dance floors are to be charged per square foot of the dance floor. This is why some discos, such as Bamboo near Walking Street, have opted to get rid of the dance floor.

F. Enforcement is currently taking place, regardless of the ability to properly get the license at this time, which is why multiple businesses have removed their dart boards or dance floors. Pool tables being announced as well will likely also cause disruption.

We here at The Pattaya News will continue to provide updates as we get them as this affects many tourists and expats alike in Pattaya.

Bar goers in Pattaya were a bit upset this week after police put a stop to one of their favourite pastimes. 

NO ... Not smoking this time   No not prostitution. What DARTS nah surely not, yeah you now need a licence according to to play darts, now where are the pwicks, not in the dartboard that's for sure ;)

To play darts you need a dartboard license...but the license doesn't exist :spin

Dart boards/leagues suspended throughout Pattaya, Businesses told New license coming

Local darts player and darts associations were surprised to hear on February 2nd, 2018 that all darts leagues are to be suspended and dart boards to be taken down. The Pattaya Darts association says it has been told there is a new license that will need to be purchased by bars specifically for dart boards and dart leagues. This includes electronic dart boards, magnetic darts, etc.

However, at this time the darts license is not available. The Pattaya News can confirm that multiple area businesses have taken down their dart boards as a precaution, including the Retox group or suspended dart leagues at this time. Local dart players and the Dart Association of Thailand will be reaching out to City Hall to speak further clarification on this enforcement and when the license will be available as well as the cost.

Several days prior to this announcement The Pattaya News can confirm that the HK Darts Bar, located on Soi 6 in Pattaya, was raided by Thai law enforcement officials and multiple electronic dart games were confiscated and removed. They were also told they did not have a license for the machines (Even though one is not currently available) and as of this writing remains closed by law enforcement for license violations.

We here at The Pattaya News will provide followup when we have more information from City Hall and The Thailand Darts Association on this enforcement and license regulation regarding darts.

Twenty five hookers rounded up on beach road reports the charge  "wandering about"  this time  they were fined 1,000 bht each before being released to go back to their favourite spot to earn a crust. Wouldn't they be better to round up the cheap charlies that's feeding them the dough. Dangerous game pulling a freelancer, with a bar girl you have somewhere to go back to if you was to meet with a problem. But to fine them now they need extra punters to recover that money, is that stimulating or what.

you know when it's time to go home, when your in your cosy little air conditioned office writing about expats and where they go wrong.

who said stickmanbangkok ;) Sorry for the long rambling e-mail

Book smart but street dumb!

I met a working girl in Bangkok about a week ago, and now she wants to marry me. I'm not exactly sure how I let things get to this point. Everything just moved so fast. Apparently her family has already made arrangements and is expecting me to pay a huge dowry to them. I told the girl that I am basically broke and have nowhere near enough money to pay the dowry or the cost of the engagement ceremony, so the family is not happy now and the girl says that if I am not able to pay for the ceremony, that the father has already chosen a replacement to marry her.

She says she does not want to marry this other man since she does not love him and she has never even met him or seen him before, and that she loves me and wants to spend the rest of her life with me. I'm not sure if I'm being played or if there is something fishy going on, but I am just completely confused. Thai culture is completely foreign to me. I was always book smart and never the type to make impulsive decisions, but lately I feel like my judgment and ability to make rational decisions has eroded for some reason, so any help would be appreciated.

All my instincts are telling me to run away from this situation as fast as possible, but at the same time I would feel terrible if what this girl is telling me is true and that she will now be forced into marrying a man she doesn't love and has never even seen or met before. Sorry for the long rambling e-mail, but I am pretty lost at the moment and don't know anyone else to talk to for advice. Any tips would be appreciated.

i'm alright jack, but you should just go home. typical of many the new expat that has emerged over the years,the grabbing all give nothing back. climb down of your high horse we are all the same lying down.the go home brigade is out again.some expats have not got nothing to go back to. being smug is not the answer,where as some helpful tips might be on how to economize on limited incomes. Pattaya is not thailand and probably the worst place to live on a budget anyway.

The 5 signs to look for that you should go home and leave Pattaya

Living away from home and especially in Thailand in places like Pattaya can be moments of pure bliss, you are living the dream, right? But is everyone really living this dream life and are there red flag warning signs that you are better off jumping on a plane and getting back home?

This vlog playfully but with an air of seriousness looks at the warning signs that perhaps you are better off back home than in Pattaya.

We are have different standards and acceptable living conditions, but if you have succumbed to a 3k baht a month studio with no aircon and a cold, broken shower or even possibly a large barrel you need to fill with water. You know the type, studios in the same block as the workers of Soi Baukhao, then this is sign number 1. Your not living the dream, go home.

Sign number 2.  When you complain on one of the many online food groups when a breakfast costing 99 baht and that it is too expensive or the tea is not tetleys. Perhaps a member of staff didn’t courtesy for you too? Remember you do have the choice to buy a more expensive breakfast, but perhaps you are watching your sedang a little more than you should. I even see one guy complain to a restaurant that his curry serving was not big enough – it was a 149 baht meal deal that came with naan, rice and half a pint of beer. What does the guy want?

Drinking can often cross the line in Pattaya and become a big problem for some guys here. I knew one guy that said he got drunk not just everyday but twice a day, once in the morning and once in the afternoon after he woke from his lunch time nap. If you are drinking everyday and before 5pm, Pattaya may be about to consume you and spit you out. Be warned, it could be time to leave.  Another big sign, if you have stopped drinking in a beer bar and now drink outside a 7-11 or a Thai shop as it’s cheaper; this too is a little alarming. That’s my sign number 3.

Number 4: If you have no money. I am sure there are many guys here that would struggle to even get a flight home anyway. They will live here with no health insurance and be the wrong side of 60 years old. It is a matter of time before something bad happens.

And finally, you have had or are having a bad experience with your Thai partner. Maybe they have taken all you have got and you are feeling depressed, alone and skint – but seem to think another teelak is still out there for you. Go home before you fall off a balcony.

To many this list will read as a bit of light hearted fun but I have lived in Pattaya for over ten years and sadly seen expats die far too young from over drinking, I have seen them not wanting to give up on Pattaya even with no money – and their life is worse than if they were just to get on a plane and go home. Pattaya is a fantastic place but too many people try and live the dream without the means to even pay for one good meal a day.

Pray for Pattaya, Really?

A few expats in Pattaya have recently coined a phrase across social networks that has hitherto been reserved for cities having experienced a terrorist attack; this in relation to what they cite as the fall away of Pattaya of old – citing empty restaurants and bars as being a shadow of their former glory days.  They claim that Pattaya is not what it once was, and for that we must ‘pray for pattaya’.

On face value I can understand, although not agree, with their positions. Tourism in Pattaya is up, but for most business tourism is down. You see although the streets may be heaving with Chinese tour buses and locations like Bali Hai look more like the Beijing in rush hour than a seaside pier, business do not get a slice of this Chinese Yuan Currency coming in to the country – this reserved strictly for the tour operators and their cliché.

Traditional leisure operations designed originally for the Western single male tourist are feeling the pinch – but isn’t the truth that they have been feeling this pinch year on year ever since the pound crashed against the baht in 2008 – with the Brits losing almost 30% on their exchange rate from 72 baht to 52 baht per 100 baht. Anyone retired here in Thailand became 30% poorer practically overnight.

And then the Russian arrived in mass and Pattaya started to see couples and families holidaying in a resort previously reserved for older, single white males wanting nothing more than to drink, party, pick up women. – And for some at least, play golf.  The changes in Pattaya were already beginning.

The Russian market energised the property with even lower end Russians dreaming of a holiday home abroad buying into the Pattaya dream…and then the Ruble crashed and these Russians dreams were shattered, with many unable to make final payments on their off plans units. And just like that, Pattaya had a glut of new property needed selling to complete the projects.

Pattaya,l ike Thailand actually, consistently has boom and busts, but each time shows great bouncebackability…and after the Russians the saviours were the Chinese.

Speaking to many realtors and developers that have tapped in to this market, they believe the Chinese property buyer has another 5 years of boom left.

So parking these global changes that impacted on Pattaya evolving, take a look a little closer at what has been going on in the bars, or for that matter what hasn’t.

Bar girls found mobile phones – they found Badoo, Tinder and even Facebook to meet guys – and that changed the whole landscape for beer bars. Guys in the bars were no longer needed like they were before – and that was crushing. The single males Pattaya Disneyland was being dismantled, and being done so very quickly.

Maybe others should not be saying ‘Pray for Pattaya’ but ‘Rejoice in New Pattaya’ – and place you can now have a family and bring your kids to for a holiday.  Pattaya has so much to offer now, and any nay-sayer who disses Pattaya just hasn’t scraped the surface and their opinions should be discarded.

A cleaner Pattaya that can now tap into the forecasted 50 million tourists that analysts say will be visiting Thailand by 2030, up massively on the already record breaking 30m + tourists already visiting this great country.

Does Pattaya want a piece of this pie? Absolutely – the future is very rosy if it offers the right proposition to this new breed of tourists gracing our shores.

We can live in the past and stagnate or we can jump on board – unfortunately the one constant in life is change so embrace the future and be part of it, or fall by the side.

Are Pattaya Expats Really Expats?

Lets consider the facts on being an ‘expat’

For all us expats living in Pattaya have you ever stopped to think how much we have really changed our lives by becoming an expat in Pattaya?

My life seven years ago was based in the UK and I was very much part of the rat race on my daily commute into London, and I can only describe it as predictable and comfortable; I liked my life but knew I wanted more.

What exactly happens in our minds that one day we decide not only to break the norm but up sticks and move to Pattaya, Thailand? We all, as expats, share that one trait that we have taken the decision to come and live abroad; however different we all are – we share that one bond. But are we really that different from our fellow compatriots still living in our domestic countries?

When I made this move I remember the feeling of empowerment and control, I had well and truly broken the grasp of societies noose and escaped to a new country, with minimal concerns about the financial implications. It was as liberating as it was satisfying to realize we can all make decisions irrespective of the pressures from society trying to stop you, such as mortgages, jobs and families.

But, was it really that bold? As I sit back in my leather chair at my desk in my office, with all the comforts I would have had back in the UK, I have to beg the question – have I really become an expat and become different for the experience or am I merely an English man residing in another country? And yes I think there is a difference, as I think the big step we all make from our home countries is not really as big as we think.

Let’s put it another way. Do you watch Thai Television? (Of course you don’t), Do you still enjoy food from your home country, like the odd fried breakfast or burger on the BBQ? Who do you socialize with, I bet 9 times out of 10 its people from your own country rather than elsewhere? We relocate but we don’t change; so have we really broken the norms of our life before?

Speaking to a fellow English expat he admits he likes it when it rains in town and thinks it is because, in some small way, it’s a creature ‘comfort’ from back home; and I have to admit somewhere in his wisdom I think he has a point.
Arguably being an expat in Pattaya – with all that Pattaya has to offer – is the easiest step anyone can make moving from their home country. The city is awash with fellow expats and tourists, and in many Sois I see a greater ratio of foreigners to Thais. That’s pretty startling.

Let’s not finish on what could be construed as a negative point, as it’s not meant to be. We have been able to become expats in Pattaya with minimal disruption to how we are used to living our lives. We can eat, drink and socialize the same; only in Pattaya it’s just that much better than how we remember it used when we lived in our home countries. But, our bold moves to relocate to Pattaya probably aren’t as bold as some of us might think.

Walking Street more like Hell Zone than Happy Zone as man attacked

Walking Street in Pattaya is more like Hell Zone a week before the area is officially designated as the resort’s first “Happy Zone”.

The observation comes after the experience of a Thai/ Indian man who was beaten up and threatened with being shot and thrown in the sea by bouncers at a discotheque in the famed South Pattaya street.

Dipak Kumar Tiwaree, 30 said he was at the Nasa Discotheque on Thursday evening. He had been taking some pictures with his mobile phone when the bouncers led him out back of the disco. Dipak said the Indian owner also was there.

“I was asked, Who are you working for?” I said I was not working for anyone, I was just having a night out”, he said at Pattaya police station on Friday.

He claimed that one man got out a gun and stuck it in his ribs saying that he could easily shoot him and throw him in the sea – no one would know.

He was then physically attacked by ten bouncers, he claimed, and tossed outside where the guards told police he had been making trouble inside.

He said that police at the scene did not lift a finger to help him. Despite being in some distress he was not even given first aid or a drink.

Later at the police station on Thursday night he came face to face with his tormenters again. When police stepped out of the investigation room he was left alone with them – one made the sign of a gun with his fingers and pointed at him.

Nothing was resolved.

So later on Friday Dipak went back to register a formal complaint. He had facial bruising and a wound on his forehead and bruises all over his body, he said.

Police said they would get everyone together again to come to a just settlement for all sides

Top brass police are due in Walking Street next Saturday to declare the entertainment area a “Happy Zone” where tourists will be safe from trouble.

Prostitutes what prostitutes pt (2)

British newspapers The Sun and the Daily Mirror recently ran articles describing Pattaya as "the world's sex capital" and as a "modern-day Sodom and Gomorrah", sparking anger among government officials, especially PM Prayut. He has vowed to crack down on illegal businesses and prostitution in Pattaya, viewing them as a major embarrassment for Thailand.

On Tuesday, Pattaya City officials, local police units and administrative units of Chon Buri held a press conference on the new policy, Pattaya Happy Zone, which has been immediately implemented with the main purpose of keeping popular areas of Pattaya under control and crime-free.

The Happy Zone is being enforced in the infamous Walking Street in order to control all illegal activities to make sure that the holiday experience in Pattaya is hassle-free for everyone.

Pol Col Apichai Krobpetch, the Pattaya police superintendent, told Spectrum that Pattaya is not a hub for the sex trade. He was upset about the British media's stories, insisting they were fabricated.

"There is no such thing as prostitution in Pattaya," says Col Apichai. "Where did they get the figure of 27,000 sex workers in Pattaya? Anyone can make up this information.

"We are working very hard to keep these issues under control. We patrol every night to make sure that there are no sex workers on the streets. We make sure that all the bars follow the law and we keep our eyes on every entertainment venue and beer bar.

"Thai ladies having sex with foreigners is their personal issue. If they like each other, I don't see anything wrong with what they do behind closed doors.

"As the police chief in charge of this area, I can guarantee that Pattaya is still a safe and beautiful place to visit."


While the police are defending Pattaya as a safe and clean place, social worker Surang Janyam, the director of Service Workers IN Group Foundation, suggests we should stop fooling ourselves that prostitution does not exist in Thailand and start thinking about ways to include sex workers as part of society and as human beings with dignity.

"We can't close our eyes and pretend that there are no sex workers in Thailand. The estimated number published in the Daily Mirror is totally inaccurate -- 27,000 sex workers in Pattaya is way too low. We have a lot more sex workers than that. However, the actual number is not the real issue," Ms Surang says.

"We have to think what we can do to improve their lives and well-being. Cracking down on prostitution and arresting sex workers won't solve the problem as they will end up having no job and no money. Meanwhile, the real issue is not them selling themselves for money. The real issue is that the government doesn't do anything to improve the dire economic situation that forces many people into this seedy business.

"Forget about legalising prostitution. How about decriminalising it altogether and bringing sex workers under the labour law? That way they can at least get some social welfare and get the same treatment each human deserves."

Chantawipa Apisuk, director of the Empower Foundation who has been working on the issue for more than 30 years, says there have been many attempts to solve the problem but none has been successful.

She suggests that instead of cracking down and banning the sex trade, the government should reach out to sex workers and ask them what they want. Then the two sides can meet halfway in order to keep everything under control.

While prostitution remains a never-ending issue, Ms Chantawipa worries that the legalisation or decriminalisation of prostitution may not be happen in her lifetime because there is a bigger issue behind it.

"Prostitution in Thailand is all about bribery. Owners of each venue must bribe the police to keep their business going. If prostitution becomes legal, how else will the cops make money? Don't forget that a big part of our income also stems from this type of business," says Ms Chantawipa.

"The police only crack down when they have to compile human trafficking reports. With the way our country is run, I doubt this issue will ever be solved."

Ning fully agrees with the legalisation of prostitution but her main concern is that sex workers will be labelled and stigmatised further.

"Legally registering as a sex worker means they also accept their status selling sex for living. Thais have a negative attitude towards this type of work even though many people earn a living this way," says Ning.

"I have many friends still in the sex trade. They are abused, they get injured and some have died from getting beaten up. We are too afraid to file a report with the police since what we do is not legal. We should be protected under the same law no matter what we do."

No sex please, we're Thai  pt (1)

With the police denying prostitution exists in Pattaya, activists say there's little chance of the sex trade being decriminalised

t started off as nothing more than a small fishing village on the Gulf of Thailand. Its long sweeping bay was dotted with a few boats and shacks where the villagers lived. Then a group of 500 American soldiers stationed at a military base in Nakhon Ratchasima were driven to Pattaya on June 29, 1959, for a week of rest and relaxation (R&R). They rented several houses at the southern end of the beach from a prominent local, Luang Sunthorn, thus opening a Pandora's box for this sleepy fishing village.

Word spread among American soldiers stationed in the region and Pattaya quickly become a hot alternative destination to the concrete sprawl of Bangkok. GIs had put Pattaya on the map as the best beach destination to unwind and indulge.

When large numbers of troops began to arrive at the neighbouring Baan Sattahip air base, now known as U-tapao airport, things really started to pick up in Pattaya. After almost half a century, Pattaya has transformed itself from a getaway destination for international soldiers during the Vietnam War to Thailand's best-known red light district among sex tourists from every corner of the world.


The Thai and the US governments signed an agreement to provide R&R facilities in Thailand during the Vietnam War. In 1964, GIs started to arrive in U-tapao, the first US army base not far from Pattaya's beach area.

From then on until 1976, about 700,000 international soldiers were sent for R&R each year, spending one week in Thailand to party.

Women selling sex for a living is nothing new to Thai society. In 1680 during the Ayutthaya period, prostitution was fully legal and there were even state-run brothels. The skin trade was largely confined to the Bangkok area. But as soon as international soldiers started to descend on Pattaya, it became the new destination for sex workers to expand their customer base.

Sex workers adapted to the new customers, learning about exchange rates, rock and roll and the various army ranks as well as picking up the slang. They were providing services to young soldiers, some traumatised by war, in a rush to enjoy their week off before going back to the war.

When the North Vietnamese won the war in 1975, the fortunes of Pattaya fell into a brief slump. With all the soldiers gone, many of the bars, clubs and sex workers were forced into early retirement, yet the town endured and was reinvigorated by a new wave of hedonistic visitors from near and far.

Pattaya was named a city in 1978 and began to market itself to a broader range of tourists. Although circumstances are different from those in the 1970s, many GIs still head right to the heart of the infamous destination, where things haven't changed that much. After the Vietnam War, many servicemen remained in Pattaya. They married Thai women, opened bars and restaurants and kept the GI spirit alive. Today thousands of American servicemen still come to Pattaya every year to participate in the joint Thai-US military exercise known as Cobra Gold.


For a lonely old American like Matt, it's nearly impossible to find a nice young girl back home in California. But the sexagenarian still hasn't given up hope of finding the next Mrs Right.

After three failed marriages to Western women, Matt stopped looking at white girls because he thought they are not capable of love. He shifted his sights to a more exotic option -- Asian girls. When appearances alone can't win love, Matt realised there's one guaranteed way to catch the perfect lady: money.

Pattaya was the only place he could think of that would fulfil his Asian dream. He made his first trip 10 years ago in the quest to find his true love. But when he arrived, he was very surprised to find how easy it is to find love in Pattaya.

"Love happens every day here. I usually come here for three months a year. I stay in a cheap condo I bought and I can't tell you how many girls I've brought over to my love nest," Matt says proudly.

"I thought I would settle down with a nice Thai lady and have a warm loving family together, but the ladies here are not wife material. It's all about the money for them. I used to date a much younger lady and she always asked for money. She said I had to send her money every month, buy her a house and send her kid to school. If that's what love is here in Pattaya, I don't want it. Why bother when I can get someone new every day?"

"Good guys go to Heaven, bad guys go to Pattaya" -- the expression appears to be the slogan of Pattaya City. The motto may reek of sarcasm but it confirms the mindset of many tourists who come to Pattaya just for sexual shenanigans.

"I come here every year to relax and, of course, to meet young and beautiful ladies. When I first came here five years ago, I picked up a lot of girls from bars, but nowadays I can pick up girls anywhere and any time," boasts a 58-year-old Danish man who wished to remain anonymous.


Supin, a 28-year-old sex worker from Surin province in the Northeast, came to Pattaya when she was 21 at the suggestion of a friend. Needing to raise money to send her children to school, Supin decided to leave home and earn some money.

She went to Bangkok a year prior to Pattaya to work in a restaurant as a waitress where she earned 280 baht a day plus tips. But the money was never enough to feed her whole family after her Thai husband left her with two children, making her the main breadwinner.

When her friend suggested she could earn more money in Pattaya, Supin didn't think of anything else but her family. She was fully aware of what that might involve, but she was willing to do anything to bring in much-needed cash.

"I first came here to work in a beer bar. I only served drinks at that time until some customers offered me for money for sex. When I first earned 2,000 baht in one day instead of 280 baht, I realised I could actually do this for a living," Supin says.

Thanadda "Ning" Swangnetr, a 48-year-old activist and public figure who gained fame with an award-winning book exposing her life as a sex worker, told Spectrum that what forced her into prostitution when she was 18 was financial problems.

"I had a kid when I was very young from unprotected sex. I needed a lot of money to raise my child. But I only graduated high school and I had no skills. I ended up with a low-paid job earning 3,500 baht a month in Bangkok. Then a friend told me I could earn 5,000 baht a month working in a bar serving drinks in Pattaya. I decided to go since I could earn more money," Ning says.

"When I first arrived, they placed me in a room with a glass window in front. Girls were picked by customers and served them drinks. I didn't get picked for a week and thought this may not be the right job for me. Then a tour guide asked me to spend time with him in his hotel room for 4,000 baht, which was a lot of money in 1985, and I thought this is a lot of money for just one night. I then became hooked on the temptation of the large amount of money I could earn in one day."

Ning thought about quitting many times since selling herself was not something that she could tell everyone about proudly. But at the end of the day, it brought in money to feed her whole family. She occasionally did other jobs, but they never paid as much as being a sex worker.

"I was hooked on the money. I had enough to send back to my family and I even had enough to entertain myself, buy new clothes, go clubbing and actually live my life," Ning says.

Happy Zone’s are the answer to a safer Pattaya says top cop

A Crisis meeting was held by Pattaya police recently addressing the growing concern over tourist safety in and around the area. The solution to the problem, Happy Zones.

The “Happy Zone” idea come from the national police HQ, and will slowly be introduced into tourist cities across Thailand in the near future. Pattaya will be the first to take a shot at the new concept, which police hope will be a success.

“So we have decided to set up ‘Happy Zones'”, said Somprasong. “These will be in tourist towns throughout the country but the project will start in Pattaya first”.

Pattaya image plan: From 'sin city' to family resort

The Designated Areas for Sustainable Tourism Administration (Dasta) is aiming to strengthen local tourism in Pattaya and improve the city's image among foreign tourists.

Dasta deputy director-general Taweebhong Wichaidit said a plan is in progress to change Pattaya's image from a "sin city" to a family entertainment destination.

Officials are promoting tourism areas such as Baan Chark Ngaew, Takien Tia, Nong Prue, Nong Pla Lai, Huay Yai, Khao Chee Jan and Khao Mai Kaew, all of which offer scenic views of nature.

Tourists in these areas can experience the local lifestyle away from Pattaya's nightlife and beaches in places such as Baan Chark Ngaew, a 100-year-old Chinese community.

Mr Taweebhong said the effort to change Pattaya's image may be difficult, but Dasta will work to promote alternative tourism for Thai and international travellers who want to see authentic local culture and nature.

"We aim to strengthen local communities to generate more tourist revenue within two years, and then they will be stronger in using their assets to present themselves as new tourist attractions," he said.

Dasta is trying to create local tourist attractions and activities and revitalise nature sites to attract both local and foreign travellers.

Baan Chark Ngaew represents Chinese vintage life, while Nong Prue shows a religious and cultural dimension with a mix of Christian, Buddhist and Muslim influences.

Khao Chee Jan is home to 11 royal projects conforming with the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej's sufficiency economy philosophy.

"I strongly believe that Chon Buri's designated areas will offer more dimensions to Thais and international travellers in the future," Mr Taweebhong said.

Dasta always focuses on designated areas to help distribute income to local communities and reduce poverty.

It will let the Tourism Authority of Thailand present the new tourist attractions.

Dasta has worked more than five years to push community-based tourism and aims to distribute tourism revenue to 2,500 districts nationwide in 2017, up from 1,500 districts last year.

i know you should not take the law into your own hands, no need for violence though as two wrongs do not make a right, now they have locked the bar woman up and say, if there's trouble with drunk tourists then call the police. they denied her bail,the 43 year old who they said was the owner of the beer bar in Soi 8 she will appear in court today and charged with assault and causing bodily harm.
why was she arrested,i think the pressure of social media. but some drink and don't realize how much they actually do drink,so the bill seems way over the top.lets hope that something was learned by both sides.

He said he called the police but that nobody came to help or take his statement.

Bombs and gang shootout in Pattaya

At 1.30am, on the morning of November 30, Pattaya police received reports of a shooting and bombing in Pattaya.

Twenty-three-year old Mr Chayin Naebpimai reported to Nongprue police that he had stopped at the side of the road, close to the International School on Route 36, when a group of thirty and forty motorcycles gathered around him.

Some took cover behind his car whilst others began shooting at another group of men on the far side of the road. At one point one threw what appeared to be a home-made bomb which exploded and shattered glass.

Mr Chayin said that he and his friend hurried away quickly but in the panic of the situation he drove straight into a ditch.

He said he called the police but that nobody came to help or take his statement. Eventually some friends appeared and helped to pull the car from the ditch.

Afterwards Mr Chayin says he went to the Nongprue police station to report the incident but it was closed and he had to telephone Pattaya police to make a statement.

As for wandering about after midnight looking for a female or whatever, why not do it earlier in the evening, unless buying the drinks all night puts some off  :o  all that is left in most cases as the night goes on into the early hours of the morning is what nobody else wants, the leftovers.

Pattaya has a sleazy, violent reputation, but how safe is it really

Pattaya is definitely quite safe for the average tourist partaking in normal activities.  how and why we come to this firm stance - in spite of the city's sordid reputation. Anyone wandering the streets of Pattaya drunk, or partly pickled by alcohol after midnight, exposes themselves to the first level of danger.

Most vulnerable at this hour is the single male, partly drunk and intent on picking up a girl companion for the night. Predators abound in the dark of this concrete jungle, and like their counterparts in the wild, they seek the weak and vulnerable. Here it's the drunk, the boozy guy seeking ....

Foreign tourists bashed, robbed in Pattaya

A Swedish tourist lies unconscious after being attacked on LK Metro Road, Pattaya, early on Friday morning. He was given first aid and recovered. (Photo by Chaiyot Pupattanapong)

Three foreign tourists, one a woman, were attacked and robbed of thousands of baht in two incidents in the Pattaya area, Chon Buri province, early on Friday morning.

Police said the men were from Japan and Sweden, and the woman from Russia.

T----, 41, who was visiting Pattaya for the first time, was knocked down by two Thai men on LK Metro Road about 2.30am.

The Swede, identified only as Stephen, 44, witnessed the attack and tried to help the Japanese, but he was knocked out by a kick to his chin. The Japanese tourist suffered a deep cut in his mouth.

The thugs took about 5,000 baht in cash and ran off with a Thai woman, Mr K---- told police.

Police later arrested two, They denied attacking the tourists. In April last year they were charged with assaulting a British tourist, police said.

The Swede was given first aid at the scene of the robbery and recovered.

About 6am D----, 26, brought 28-year-old Russian L---- to local police. He said he found her walking in tears and seeking help on a side road in the Jomtien area.

She said she had been in Pattaya's Walking Street and hired a taxi motorcycle outside Siam Bayshore Resort to return to her room, but the man instead took her beyond there to the side road, where he snatched her bag containing US$100 and 140 baht in cash, a mobile phone and her documents.

Then the man shoved her on the ground and causing cuts and bruises, before speeding off on his motorcycle.

Police were checking surveillance camera footage in the area to identify the thief, and said they would find out if he was a real taxi motorcyclist, or just pretending.

We have had jokes in the past about soi 6, but this is bad news, being stabbed in the face with a broken bottle. Must of been a sight to see a brawl that appeared to involve around twenty bar girls. The victim said that the suspect was on her first day working at the bar. She had become drunk and pointed her feet at her, for no reason, a sign of disrespect. takes up the story

GoGo Girl Stabbed in The Face in Soi 6, Beach Road

At 3am, on the morning of August 23, Pattaya Police were called to a disturbance on Soi 6, Beach Road, Pattaya.

At the scene Sawang Boriboon Medics were treating one injured girl after a savage brawl that appeared to involve around twenty bar girls.

Police officers struggled to control the situation. One girl, twenty-two-year-old Ms Channipa Kukiew, a Go Go Girl, was covered in blood and being treated for serious head injuries. She was rushed to Banglamung Hospital for emergency treatment.

Another girl, twenty-year-old Ms Kannika Mingkwan, a Go Go Girl from the same bar, was holding a broken bottle which was taken as evidence.

The victim said that the suspect was on her first day working at the bar. She had become drunk and pointed her feet at her, for no reason. (a sign of disrespect)

She approached her new work-mate to ask her the problem and a fight broke out. It was broken up by security staff and the two girls arranged to ‘meet outside’ to settle their dispute later.

As the bar was closing the two squared up but the suspect produced a bottle and hit the victim in the face. She then proceeded to stab her in the face and arms ten-times before she could be pulled off.

After questioning the suspect said she had not pointed her feet at all and that the victim must have imagined it.’ She claimed to have been dragged outside by a group of the victims friends and was ‘only defending herself with the bottle.’

She complained she had been ‘bullied all evening.’

She has been held for further questioning.

Teens charged over Pattaya body-under-bed murder

Two teenage boys, one 17 and the other 14, were arrested on Sunday on charges of murdering a transgender woman in a Pattaya hotel and stuffing the body inside a bed frame.

Police apprehended the teens, both from Nakhon Ratchasima, at a bus terminal in Muang Chon Buri district around noon and took them for questioning at Muang Pattaya police station.

The body was found in a room of a five-storey hotel on Soi Buakhao in tambon Nong Phrue of Bang Lamung district on Saturday morning. The hotel alerted police after a maid noticed blood oozing out from underneath the bed accompanied by a foul stench.

Police officers lifted up the mattress and found the body underneath. Two guests had left the room earlier that morning but apparently were unaware that there was a dead body under their bed.   

The two boys were questioned by investigators and admitted to murdering the transgender women.

Pattaya hotel guests unaware of dead body under bed

Two guests spent a night in a Pattaya hotel unaware that there was a dead body under their bed, according to local reports.

The body of the slain transgender woman was only discovered after the guests had checked out, when a maid noticed blood near the bed.

Pattaya police and rescue workers were alerted to the incident at the five-storey hotel on Soi Buakhao in tambon Nong Phrue of Bang Lamung district around 11.30am on Saturday.

Rescue workers found the unidentified body after lifting up the bed in the room on the roof deck of the hotel. Police believe the victim had been dead for three or four days. The body was sent to a forensic institute for an autopsy to find out the cause of the death.

Thai media reported that two men had checked into the room on Aug 16. They took a transgender guest to the room at 1.35am on Aug 18 before checking out later that morning.

On Friday evening, a man and woman checked into the room and reported a bad smell. They asked the hotel staff to spray the room before spending the night there.

On Saturday morning, a hotel maid came to clean the room, discovered blood coming from under the bed and a foul smell. She alerted the hotel manager, who immediately called police to investigate.

Pol Col Apichai Kropphet, the Pattaya poice chief, said officers had already obtained the identification of the two male suspects and footage from closed-circuit television. He declined to reveal further details.

Police are now looking for the suspects, he said.

A Gang Shootout at The Dolphin Roundabout, most of us have been there at one time or another, to think of it as a family holiday resort and rival gangs shooting at each other, i certainly give it a miss these days. twenty youths armed with knives, batons and other weapons. What is happening in THE LAND OF SMILES

Gang Shootout at The Dolphin Roundabout Leaves One Dead

Just after midnight, on August 19, police officers and medics rushed to the Dolphin Roundabout, Naklua after reports that rival gangs were shooting at each other.

Medics treated many teenagers for gunshot wounds and other injuries and one sixteen-year-old, later died after being shot in the back

The injured were taken to Banglamung Hospital for further treatment.

One of the youngsters, a friend of the dead lad, said that before the incident ten of them were hanging around at the roundabout, doing nothing much, when they were approached by a gang of twenty youths armed with knives, batons and other weapons.

Most of the youngsters ran away but some stayed to fight and that was when one of the group pulled out a gun and started shooting.

Suicide or Murder? Englishman Found Hanging as House Burns Down in Pattaya

At 4am, on the morning of August 1, Huay Yai police station was informed of a suspected suicide and fire at a house on Soi Tessabal Road, next to the Huay Yai Temple, Pattaya.

Of the four house complex the last in the row was ablaze and fire fighters took some time to bring the situation under control.

At the side of the property investigators found the body of a fifty-six-year-old Englishman, hanging from a water tank platform. Rescue teams released the body.

Twenty-nine-year-old step-daughter of the dead man, said that her mother had received a call threatening to kill himself and so she wanted to come and see.

Her mother, she said, did not join her as she was afraid as he regularly ‘beat her up.’

when she arrived she discovered the fire and tried to put it out using buckets of water from the swimming pool, but the blaze was too fierce for her to handle.

She called for the emergency services and then noticed her step-father hanging at the side of the property.

Pol Capt Pornchai has taken photographic evidence and appeared unconvinced by this story as he has confirmed he will investigate the ‘real cause of death’ after the results of an autopsy, carried out at the Police Hospital.

some residents are battling to reclaim the city's former image

How long will they have to go back  :spin

They say the present day bar scene in Pattaya is an indirect spoil of the Vietnam War to which the city lent itself, Things really picked up in Pattaya as UTapao Airport, very close to pattaya was heavily staffed and used by the US Air Force throughout the Vietnam conflict.

The story goes, A group of 500 American soldiers stationed at the military base in Korat were driven to Pattaya on 29th June 1959 for a week of rest and relaxation known as (R&R). They rented several houses at the southern end of the beach from a prominent Thai Lord, making this once sleepy fishing village to what it is today. Despite their short stay, the GIs had a great time and raved about the place. The word spread among other American soldiers stationed in the region and Pattaya quickly became a hot alternative to the seedy side of Bangkok.                                    This vid will take you back a bit.

Must be tough on some girls in pattaya that are nothing to do with the bar scene and get classed as the same, an article in the reports some locals say they’ve had enough. Many locals no longer feel safe in their own town. Others feel ashamed to admit where they come from

Pattaya's days as a family retreat have long since given way to the sex game, but some residents are battling to reclaim the city's former image as a clean and safe destination.

In sin city, locals left hoping for a miracle


“I am afraid to tell everyone that I am from Pattaya,” said Taew, 22. “I don’t know what kind of woman other people will think I am once they find out where I live.”

Her concerns are not unfounded. Nan, 32, is a tall, tanned and well-educated businesswoman who was born and raised in Pattaya. Two years ago she was taking a tour in Germany. While she was walking around Berlin, she asked a couple to take a picture of her and her friend.

“Danke,” Nan managed to say in German to thank the couple who had helped her.

“ ‘Where are you from?’ the man asked after he handed the camera back,” Nan recalled. “I told him I am from Pattaya, Thailand. All of a sudden his wife pulled her husband’s arm away and said to me, ‘There is no place for a hooker like you in our country. Go back to where you are from if you want to find customers.’

“I was stunned by the comment, but didn’t say anything back to her. I didn’t realise how bad the image of Pattaya is until that day,” Nan said. From that point on, she always introduced herself as being a Chon Buri resident, being careful to avoid any mention of Pattaya.

A bit more info on the croc farm raft - safe or not - reports they say if you can make the raft sink within five minutes, they will hand over 5 million baht, no need to bring an elephant they have plenty. Hey! fair play to the guy for not laying down on this

‘Crocodile Raft’ Throws Down Gauntlet With Epic Dare to Online Critics

A tycoon whose business involves pushing boatloads of tourists into a pond full of hungry crocodiles issued a hearty challenge Friday to those safety-obsessed naysayers on the internet.

If they come to his attraction and can make the raft sink within five minutes, he will hand over 5 million baht. If it doesn’t, they must publicize the fact online – and accept a free year’s membership to the attraction.

An elephant is used to load-test and demonstrate the nigh unsinkability of a raft Thursday used to float tourists in a pond of hungry crocodiles at Elephant Kingdom southeast of Bangkok in Chonburi province.

“If you get together in a group of 17 people and can sink my raft in five minutes, you get the money!” Uthane said. “But if you cannot, you have to accept that it’s safe, and if you’re a real man, you should correct the news. That’s all I want. By the dignity of mankind, I ask you, if you prove that it’s safe, publish the results on your Instagram. That’s all I ask.”

Pattaya croc farm licence suspended

A popular crocodile farm has its operating licence suspended for 90 days after photos of tourists feeding the reptiles from a floating cage raised concerns about safety.

The feeding activity at Anachak Chang Pattaya, also known as Elephant Kingdom, could cause a risk to people's lives, said Adisorn Promthep, director-general of the Fisheries Department.

The popular attraction in Bang Lamungh district is owned by Utairatch Crocodile Farm & Zoo Co, whose main business is breeding the animals.

Police and officials from other agencies visited the farm on Friday after a video showing the feeding frenzy went viral.

The rafts, which measure 5x10 metres, are equipped with outboard motors as well as cables that allow them to be towed to safety quickly. They also have chest-high barriers, but many people who viewed the video believe the practice of feeding the crocs from such a platform is still risky.

Mr Adisorn said the farm was in violation of a ministerial regulation issued under the 1992 Wildlife Preservation and Protection Act, which requires operators of public zoos to provide safety measures for visitors and people living nearby.

In his capacity as director of the department responsible for issuing operating licences for crocodile farms, he has suspended the licence for 90 days while the farm improves safety measures.

He has asked the Chon Buri provincial fisheries office to inspect the farm to ensure that new measures are put in place. He has has also instructed all fisheries offices to inspect similar farms in their areas.

Uthen Youngprapakorn, the owner of the attraction, said earlier that there had never been an incident involving the floating feeding platforms. Each cage can bear a load of about eight tonnes but occupancy is limited to 10-15 people at a time to ensure safety, he said.

Elephant Kingdom covers 48 rai in all and has two ponds, one used for breeding some 4,000 crocodiles and 300 gharials. There are also hornbills, panthers and leopards at the site.

Another fishy tale from pattaya

A german man claims he gets a rotten lobster served up to him in a fish restaurant in walking street, they refused to change it, so he takes his lobster to the police station, and has to use a translator as he nor the lobster could speak english. He paid the bill of 1,848 baht and took the evidence straight to the police, who confirmed that the lobster had a disgusting appearance, and smell.

BUT ... Pattayaone reports, He selected the lobster out of the tank himself and ate all of it, then he suddenly complained that the lobster wasn’t fresh. The staff tried to explain that he could have changed the lobster from the beginning but not after he had eaten the whole thing.
He was offered a discount but refused and went to the police. Case closed i would think.

Thanks for the info B/F, expensive game.   Here's another couple of gun crimes in pattaya. THAI ON THAI again.
There seems to be a spate of incidents lately of teenage gunmen robbing people mostly females, on their way home late at night, in the dark lite streets for their cash & telephones.

Gunmen Rob Two Women Riding Alone on a Dark Street

Two were in shock and told officers that two young men, aged around 18-20 years old, rode up alongside them in the street and pulled out a gun.

They were told to stop their motorbike engine and one of them grabbed the keys. The gunman then snatched a bag containing 2000 baht and a Samsung smart phone before riding away

Woman Shot as Another Thai on Thai Armed Robbery is Reported

The three of them were on their way to visit a friend, along a dark stretch of road, when two teenage boys pulled up alongside and pointed a gun at them.

They were forced to pull over and were then told to hand over all their belongings.  The two then turned on the women and, without warning, shot Ms Thanaporn and stole two cell phones and some cash before riding away into the darkness.

I was reading one of the earlier posts you made about asking if every Thai owns a gun.  Many do, but many of them buy FAKE toy guns which can look like the real thing.  I can tell you for a fact that the process to obtain a firearm LEGALLY is not an easy one for Thais and especially foreigners.  The Thai must show proof as to why he / she needs a firearm.  The proof?  They want to see ALL your assets, bank books, Land Chanots, anything you own that is of value.  This is why NO scooter boy or farmer can just walk into a gun shop and purchase a firearm.  It doesn't work that way, especially now because of all the shti that has taken place here and around the world.  If you don't own a house, land, property, will not get the permit to purchase, and second, the license.

Scooter boys who tout guns, if they ARE real, got them illegally, or they are home made POS crap.  Still, you can never be sure.  No scooter boy, let alone your average Thai could afford a decent firearm.  For example.  Let's take the Glock 19 9mm.  New?  85,000-90,000 Baht!  That's 3,000 dollars.  In the states you can purchase one for 500 bucks. In other words, you can buy six of them for what you pay for ONE in Thailand.

There are also those who smuggle guns across borders, particularly Cambodia. If scooter boy and his gang get caught, and they do, they are in a world of sht, as you have probably seen on the news almost every day.

Sorry to drift a bit off the topic of your last post.  I just wanted to comment on the gun thing with Thais.....and YES, many DO carry in their cars and even if it may be a fake, it's not worth taking a chance.

Cheers.  :cheers
