Pattaya high season hotel bookings well down on 2017 - but there could be a reason say THA

Recommended Posts

I'm sure that it has absolutely nothing to do with the soaring cost of flights, the over inflated value of the THB or the drop in other currencies (even the Yen) and more to do with computer habits because yes, when I turn on my computer I can see the cost of flights, the value of the THB and how much a holiday in Thailand would cost me and so I am looking elsewhere for my Christmas sojourn. So really it's down to computer use.

What a nice dream 

wake up 

The  Chinese had find out you are not a 1 class quality family resort 

About Russians they mostly only comes for working but get bs from their own country man 

Exactly, only so many first time Chinese tourists will come to the "East Coast Riviera" before word gets around at home that Pattaya is a dirty, dangerous, unfriendly dump. Deceptive advertising will only go so far.

Very recently, I spoke to a Brit and his Wife that were only off the Plane a few hours, and they said their flight was only about 60% full. and most of the passengers were only on a short stop-over in BKK before an onward flight to either Vietnam, or Cambodia.

I guess that the average Tourist from the UK is fed up with the " in your face " commercialism of Thailand now, and are looking for better destinations.

For sure, with the weak Pound, the UK Tourists will be looking for more value for their Pound

I have not been to Pattaya in over 6 years and I do not ever plan to go back there because you read every day of a farang getting robbed, killed ,beaten up from a gang ripped off by a ladyboy. I love Thailand and Pattaya is not Thailand. I love north east Thailand where the people are the best in the world and treat Farangs like humans and not an ATM machine

😂😂😂 and North East, Isaan is Thailand ? Is that why they do not speak thai but Isaan?

and where do you think all the thugs in Pattaya come from? Not Isaan? 

 

Did you think hookers who rob you blind come from another country ? 

 

😂😂😂

It’s just too expansive for everything plane and simple .

 

Even shopping at the markets. A crappy quality T-shirt is 200 baht.

 

In Kmart in Australia , better quality T-shirt is $4-$5 ie 100-125 baht.

 

Western quality food can easily  set you back 3000-4000 baht for 2 people, again double to cost back home.

 

And if you here for girls , at 1000-3000 bar fines and 3000-7000 for her is hardly a bargain , the crappy attitude is added free of charge though as a bonus 😉
