Thais flocking to invest as "Balihai Market" promises to transform South Pattaya

Thais online have responded in large numbers to proposals to create a thriving market area at the Balihai development in South Pattaya.

 

Following a request for investors many Thais went on Facebook to say they were interested in setting up stalls and restaurants in the shadow of the famous Pattaya sign.

 

The market will be part of the marina set to open in November.

 

The area promises to have restaurants, souvenir shops, snack food stalls, bars selling alcohol, fashion items and handmade products.

 

An online appeal showed impressions of the area that is being referred to as a new landmark of the resort.

And it will all look like poorly maintained slum after 6 Months.. New tenants will add plastic hordings, home made extensions and awnings. Stacked up stock and abandoned packing boxes will block the walkway. They will paint their shop in garish uncoordinated colours. Did I mention the badly parked scooters and soi dogs sleeping everywhere ?

I'll leave the shopping there to the zero-baht clientele from the Middle Kingdom!

Outdoor market at Bali Hai would be very nice place to hang out. Pattaya needs more spaces like this, people love them. Even crammed, small spaces are loved by everyone, outside Central the steps are always busy, both locals and foreigners sit around. Beach Rd used to be a good place to spend time just sitting and people watching, but they took away the benches. Still, small areas with seating on Beach Rd are still very, very popular, the round benches near Walking St entrance and opposite of Central are always busy, even the wood fenced spots on Beach Rd walkway attract people, even tho sitting on the wood fence isn't very comfortable.. Steps outside Royal Garden always packed with people. But there just ins't enough of those spaces in Pattaya to just hang out .

For people who do not like bars, there is almost no place to hang out, few coffee shop terraces are the only option, Starbucks on Beach Rd and Coffee Bean outside Mike's.

Souldn't that say, in the shadow of the 50 story condo ruin?

Haven't been there lately, but has there been any improvement in the marine, last I have seen was that all the jetties were laying upside down in the water
