Jetski Mafia

Recommended Posts

I'm curious, is the jetski mafia only at Pattaya Beach or do they try to also scam foreigners at Jomtien and Koh Larn, or are these beaches safe from them?

Not even at Pattaya beach and scams have been virtually eliminated for at least 3 years. All operators now have insurance and if renters do have an accident they pay no more than 4000 Baht, which is the excess on the insurance.

Jetski mafia in Pattaya can now be filed under urban myth or history.

So what does them stop to use the same tactic like before with hidden damage to the Jetski, but ask, instead of 10k or more, just for the 4k? Still a nice little earner.

Why do people rent these stupid things??

 

yes I also wonder ?! maybe it's the idea that people have about tourism ? Similar people who travel to capital cities around the world ? How idiot they can be to go visit the same malls that they can see anywhere else in the world and endure traffic + pollution ?!

If you're an experienced driver, I'd think it's safe (ish).

They widen the beach. If you walk in direction of Pattaya Klang, you will have a free view and see the result. I guess it was made to store the hords of Chinese Tourists who want to go out to the platforms, so they do not stand all around on the walkway 😎

So that means there were no brown envelopes passing from the thieving crooks (jet ski "operators") to the police?😄
