The Junta: "Creating problems where there were none". Probably just imitating Trump admin?

If they don't like Pattaya, how about simply go somewhere else.

There is that gnawing feeling among do-gooders that somewhere, someone, is having a good time.

Agreed, and what happens time after time, the do gooders who scream the shrillest are usually up to their necks in it.

Whoever wrote this needs to go back to school and learn how to research a topic before talking about it.  Pattaya Beach in the 1970's was nothing even close to what it is today.  There were 3 hotels - Pattaya Palace, Nipa Lodge and 1 or 2 others which I can't recall the names.  The Royal Cliff Hotel opened  about 1973 or 74.  There was 1 street which ran along the beach where the hotels and restaurants were located.  There was also 1 R & R Center on the beach for American GI's on holiday away from the war.  There were also a few bars along the beach.  At that time the beach was clean as was the water.   I was stationed in Thailand with the American Air Force in 1970 - '72 - '75 and went to Pattaya often especially during the '73 - '75 time frame as I was stationed at U-tapao RTNAFLD.  The Pattaya you see today evolved after the American GI's left the country.

This article isn't about the history of Pattaya, and research into that by the writer isn't needed or relevant. The article is about the authorities, again, offering pointless quotes about how they are trying to stem or end the nightlife NOW. So I'd suggest that it is you who needs to learn to understand what the subject of the article is before criticizing others. But thank you for the history lesson.

Pattaya is evolving on its own through private sector investment as a diversified beach tourist destination.  It has Walking Street and Soi 6 but it also now has more and more family entertainments being added to those that have already been here.  The city's image will take care of itself--the city government needs to tackle improvements to the infrastructure.

Yes, the quote is. 'Beware of people in high places'

Every big city has night life entertainment it does not do much for me as i do not like noisy bars but on the other hand it does not disturb me either as long as there are other things to do such as beaches parks and malls.

You sir, are indeed a Saint:biggrin:

All this is just the tip of the iceberg. If the Thai authorities really want to crack down on the sex industry they should turn their attention to the home-grown variety catering for Thais from all walks of life.

 

According to a number of surveys, the majority of young Thai men get first sexual experience in one of the ubiquitous brothels that exist - and have for centuries, in just about every town and city across the land.

 

But in the Land of Smiles the official eye does not care to see the official heart doesn't grieve. Hence the tendency blame Thailand's image as the world's sex capital on foreign visitors and residents. If Thailand is the hub of anything, it is the hub of sexual hypocrisy.

Bangkok Barry I would suggest you take a dose of your own medicine.  Pattaya of today is NOT the result of -  "  Pattaya’s bawdy reputation hails from the Vietnam War era when American GIs partied in the city in their downtime. "  It's the results of the tourists who followed.  The writer puts the blame for the Pattaya of today on the American GI's who visited the place during the war which is totally incorrect.

Why is everyone suddenly concerned about the future of the sex worker? Are they really of a big concern? Do they need priorities more than other normalised Thai people? They will head back to their farm and everything will be ok, for sure.
