Hate walking street, so the quicker the change, the better.

Knock it all down and start again.

You can see ugly concrete boxes anywhere in the world, why would you come to Thailand to see more. :crazy:

Yup, looks like Siglap or Changi Village area in Singapore! Cheap generic shop houses with the occasional pub or restaurant.  I think I would prefer to keep my family in the safe and orderly street that we already call home!

Well they got one thing right, there is a hell of a lot less people walking around in the second image.

Obviously the TAT weren't consulted before this image was released.  Do they have inactive posts in Marketing Consultant offices?

Interesting that the artists impressions shows no people ..... I wonder why!

My guess would be that people would just get in the way of the featured creative architecture.

And and and.... They have a sidewalk in the future walking street.  Good to see there'll be plenty of street stalls making more than the rented buildings.

Yeah, but. . .

 

Who needs more shopping malls in Pattaya or anywhere else when, in a few decades if the "experts" are correct, the vast majority of us will be scraping along on a state handout called UBI (Universal Basic Income)?

Bang Saray attracts local tourists and Chang Mai a different type of tourist.

 

Take away the sex tourism and Pattaya would be  lot smaller.

Or, it would evolve.  Not all tourists come here for sex.  And it's easy to have adult entertainment areas other than a prime oceanside spot like WS.  Look at how Pattaya has evolved over the past 15 years.  Many smaller beer bar complexes are now gone.

You don't need to destroy Walking Street just to have another street with a market selling crap and tourist tat do you ?

Some would argue that WS is already destroyed. LOL

Wait where are the sport shops. The artist is right about one thing, there will only be a couple of people there
