Goodbye "Sin City" hello "Sports City" - Kobkarn announces Pattaya makeover citing Jetskis as major world attraction

Recommended Posts

Hmm! More Jet Skis = more pollutants in an already, filthy, stinking water.

More Jet Skis = more rip offs to tourists who "damage them."

Can you see people in England saying, "Lets go to Pattaya, they have Jet Skis."

Or more likely, "Lets go to Pattaya, they have very friendly girls EVERYWHERE."

I saw a truly world class event last week, but I think it fell into the category, that the Tourism and Sports Minister is trying to pretend has been stamped out.

The ladies tennis and golf championships, jetski championship @ Jomtien beach,Pattaya (not very)  "international" Music festival,The fireworks competition,Pattaya Marathon are some that  maybe somewhere nearly approaching a world class standard (which world is open to question )

Some years back they used to host the formula one boat racing in Pattaya, what horrendous noise pollution that created, took weeks for your ears to stop ringing!  :shock1:

So yes, if they can make the jet skis noisy enough, given Thai love of anything that generates high decibels! this could well happen :sad:

She's havin a laugh!

I spoke to the winner of the Pattaya cross bay swim about five years ago.

.she had swam in some fairly ordinary water during her career. But she said that the Pattaya swim was the first she had actually swam through terds. She reckoned that her good time was down to the fact she could wait to get out of the water.

 

Maybe for other sports they could use the big park on the corner of Soi Kao Talo and sukhumvit. Handy location, they could stay in the Grand Eastern Hotel behind and just walk to all the events.

and toilet facilities on site.

Completely wrong approach.
Why is there concentrated on Pattaya, I am haunted.
Pattaya is some of the few destinations that have a clear profile and also the world class services products.
Pattaya does not need tourism assistance or needs to be transformed.
It is a money-printing machine and the revenues are spread over the entire population,
in contrast to the large hotel chains, which takes the profit abroad.

More safety, better public transport, sensible waste and wastewater disposal should be the innovation themes.

One day Pattaya is going to have Nature tourism the next day its going to

have Sports tourism...lol

 

How can anyone hold up the Jet Skis as some kind of model to be looked

up to? One of the biggest scams in Thailand.....

 

Pattayas horrible beach insures it will never become a family

destination of any kind....

This nonsense of Pattaya becoming a respectable destination and not a sex destination will end when the locals think foreigners have forgotten. Give it a few weeks. Then it will all be remembered again when we get our next foreign tabloid splash.

Yeah right, Step 1, get through immigration, Step 2, if you haven't decided to leave for another country, head for the city of scams. :annoyed:
