All very positive for the global image of tourism and tourist well treatment and safety!

This Indian ain't a tourist.

Thanks for pointing out that is allowed to attack long time residents, only not tourists, and that the world should take note of it when considering to condemn an attack or not.

It is time for the main world countries give strong warnings to their citizens about Thailand being unsafe with no Police authority to protect them. Then Thailand may do something. But another big dream.

Oh the irony. You think the rest of the world's seedy red light District's are safe, with police everywhere?

Pattaya is Disneyland compared to them!

I would use the term, "show caution" instead but nothing will be done regardless.  Take the money and brush everything else under the rug.

A walk down the street by a few 'Officials' and a declaration that everything is good is NOT CHANGE. 17% of Thailand's GDP comes from Tourism unless they really truly want to keep this and increase it they need to do much better.  The tide ALWAYS turns.

Agreed.Cambodia is developing by leaps and bounds.

Turn t up.

the main world counties you refer to are bombing Syrian women and children in their homes daily, before it was Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam, Laos etc etc. No protection there.

 

Do you really think some story about an Indian in a Pattaya nightclub who claims he was attacked by ten men, but with no obvious wounds, is really significant or will even be remembered in a month.

 

This story has as much credablity as the fake Irishmens claims that the Thai van driver stole his money and beat him up. The Irishmen made it up and so did this Indian. And even if it was true, it was Indian verses Indian anyway. 

 

The thais do an excellent job controlling the thousands of drunken idiots on walking street night after night. For such an alcohol fueled zone it is very safe. Idiots are dealt with swiftly.and very effectively. 

IT is remarkable really. I have been a regular visitor to walking street since before it was even walking street. I have never seen Thais starting trouble, but when needed they certainly know how to finish it and keep it safe for the happy partygoers.

 

And yes they all unite at the drop of a hat and work as a team when required, which is the best way to deal with out of control drunks, drug affected fools and general trouble making idiots who can't control their excitement, unlike in the "main world" countries where bystanders are too scared to get involved.

While there are plenty of drunks wandering around Walking Street- most do not cause trouble- and most are taken advantage of by the bars and its 'staff'. The whole atmosphere that have developed there is not a fun atmosphere but one in which the establishments are looking for every opportunity they can to rip off customers and when someone protests- they get beat upon.

While  this last incident involved a customer of Indian background- the nationality is not important- it is a reasonable account based upon the things that happen constantly on this street.

To those who like getting ripped off- keep going. In a few more years- it will be completely changed with the influx of Chinese and middle to upper class Thais who will not put up with the current situation.

The establishment owners have caused the decline in business by being greedy; not controlling their staff and allowing the use of guns and drugs on their premises. It won't be long before they are back in the rice fields of Issan.

Walking street is a cheap night out. $3 icy cold frothies brought to you in air conditioned comfort with beautiful naked dancing Angels dancing for you, or a happy nightclub where the drinks are a bit pricier, or cheapish oceanfront seafood while looking  out at the ocean or a range of bands with Farang or Thai music with no cover charge.

 

It is that cheap, I have to ask myself sometimes, can really I afford NOT to go?

 

Ripped off you say? 

 

Upper class Thais you say? How many do you think a gentrified walking street will attract. They have other places to go. Keep dreaming?

 

much funner  than sitting at home watching the idiot box.

Where is this encyclopedia of "resarch" I have lived here 18 months and it's the first I've heard about not taking pictures in a bar. If you cannot use cameras there should be a sign on the entrance to the establishment. 

Try taking a picture in a strip bar in the US and see what happens.

Walking Street cheap? I know of other places in Asia where you can get the same atmosphere for half the price and the girls actually like the customers as opposed to thailand where the only goal is to rip a customer off as quick as possible and at the same time speak badly about them. Once one learns Thai- it is perfectly obvious what Walking Street is about. 

As I said keep going to Walking Street- because the owners and staff love those who know nothing about their method of operation.  The Army is going to demolish the seaside operations and the continual raids will destroy the GoGo and sex places within a 2 year period. 

After that you will still be able to visit your favorite 'service girl' but you may have to travel to Issan to find her planting rice.

"Come to a settlement"..... the guy had a gun in his ribs, death threat and beaten up, left alone in investigation room with assailants.....  the RTP are turning Thailand into the Liberia of S.E. Asia.

There is no settlement in Thailand, especially not @ walking street, you only get to bribe the RTP and then paying off the bouncers. 

Boycott all tourist places with corrupted police.

Of course,  as you are championing,  theres a place for sex tourism so old fellas can slaver over young girls, but the constant rip offs do the reputation no good at all and should be better monitored.

Interesting experience with Indians at a gogo the other night. They were allowed to sit there with no drinks which I thought was incredibly generous. But give them an inch and they take a mile, so one of them started discretely taking pics... Got busted and were immediately set up on by the lady staff screaming at them to delete the pictures this went on for 10 minute's while he refused to hand over his phone at which point the door man strode in, grabbed him by the hair and dragged him outside.

I nearly cheered lol

But the headline will read Indians bashed at gogo

Much of the crappie news on TV is only one sided.. Stupid farang take the bait every time

And whats the betting they'll be no headline at all.  More fool the owners for letting them sit without paying for a drink in the first place.  Schoolboy error, especially with that tourist demographic.

Ok, Maybe I'm missing something.

 

"He had been taking some pictures with his mobile phone "

 

He is in side a club on walking street taking pictures, while the government is trying to clean up the area. They have already had a few clubs raided in the last few weeks because of someone calling into the police and complained.

 

And what does nationality (owner Indian and he is Indian) have to do with it.

 

I not condoning there action, if that is really what they did, but I kind of get the feeling they asked him to erase the pictures and/or he mouthed off at them.

 

What happen to the pictures?

 

 

Probably a lot more than is being told in this report....

most of us do know that taking pics inside a club/go-go is a no-no and most have signs up saying no pics

 

they are worried about competitors/posting on web sites etc.  I bet this guy got a tap on the shoulder and carried on regardless

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.

OOops so much for the Happiness Zone. Hold off on implementation we/they need more times to get the wrinkles out. Attacked by 10 bouncers hmm sure does not show up on his face. Post a sign Please leave all cameras and mobile phones and guns of course at the door.
