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.

Re: Only in pattaya - have I really become an expat

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.

Re: Only in pattaya - They claim that Pattaya is not what it once was

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.

Re: Only in pattaya - The 5 signs to look for that you should go home

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.

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.

sign no 6 from t/visa

You find yourself waiting for the Thaivisa email to arrive in your inbox so you can quote and reply to the comments of other posters rather than thinking of something original, interesting or amusing to post.  ;D

no.7

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.
