I would imagine the sex industry is exactly the target market Pattaya should be concentrating on for the next 12 months. Families are not going to come any time soon, working age people are probably b

Keeping the already vaccinated out defies any real logic then 🤔

Whenever Thailand and Pattaya fully open around 2024 there will be thousands of farm girls on busses making a beeline

Coke rebranded as New Coke, and Las Vegas rebranded as a family-friendly destination.

 

Both learned the "if it aint broke dont fix it" lesson very quickly.

 

Rebranding pattaya is just another form of searching for the ever-elusive high quality tourist

Millions of males in the world want to come.

Lockdowns, divorces and bad relationships they want to escape their purgatory lives and be here.

The 2 week millionaires do in fact provide a plus to the economy in many ways ie: airlines, restaurants, hotels, transportation, domestic travel/activities, etc.  Not just girls in bars.

 

I do not see Pattaya's demise.  

 

Well, without bars, women and sex I guess the millions of males will congregate in temples and then enjoy thai food😁

Does it really? Being fully vaccinated is purely a personal protection that should reduce the severity of the symptoms of any infection. Being double-shotted does not prevent you catching it or spreading it and offers no protections to others, vaccinated or otherwise.

 

Vaccine 101.

Expand  

Being vaccinated reduces your chance of infecting others as well so not just a personal choice. Your decision whether to vaccinate or not can affect others. 

 

Sorry, the jury is still out on the vaccines impact on asymptomatic carriers which is a still a rather clouded area of transmission theory. This early in the game, it is still PRIMARILY only a personal protection. The CDC says as much.

 

"Based on what we know about vaccines for other diseases and early data from clinical trials, experts believe that getting a COVID-19 vaccine also helps keep you from getting seriously ill even if you do get COVID-19. ...

 

A growing body of evidence suggests that fully vaccinated people are less likely to be infected without showing symptoms (called an asymptomatic infection) and potentially less likely to spread the virus that causes COVID-19 to others. However, further investigation is ongoing."

Not at the moment, most have gone back home and are planting rice.

 

in TH we mostly sow (not plant) rice; and the months of sowing are well over - now the girls sell lady drinks via internet, nothing else to do. And play with their sibblings who do not recognize mother anymore

How on earth do they expect or plan to have it as a family resort where there are hardly any foot paths around, hardly any zebra crossings, not that anyone stops anyways, no parks , no kids playgrounds , most locals including officials can hardly speak any English but bark out words in English rudely and abruptly. As if thai is the only polite language , English does not need please or thank you or low tone instead of screaming.

 

place has worked as is for half a century , let it be.

 

If they so determined to have “families” develop brand new family areas away from walking street. 
 

build new sidewalks , parks and then have  much greater chance at success

Open the doors and those girls will stop planting rice and be back to Pattaya to open-up again faster than you could ever imagine.

Yes, but will they be double vaccinated?

Perhaps they should have a wander around Pattaya then check out many other family friendly tourist destinations and see where Pattaya ranks. What they are trying to take away is the only thing really worth coming for in comparison. It is the sex industry that built Pattaya, no other way around it.

One does when one is staying at the Hilton and has never had the misfortune to stay in Hua Hin before.

Pure gold, there has to be a good reply to it but I can't think of it yet.

The current Chinese vaccines in Thailand are only really a "quick fix" to stop people dying.  They are less effective when it comes to spread and to variants.  Thailand should have one eye on getting people vaccinated with whatever they can ASAP, while keeping up the new normal, with future plans for decent vaccines that stand a change of reducing spread enough to possibly stop the virus completely.  Hopefully AZ can eventually do that, but they have to accept that they may still need to aim for Pfizer and Moderna.

 

But this obviously means a lot of covid, but not ICU/death, for the next year or two.

We will probably end up with yearly vaccinations same as flu, to cope with new variants for years to come.

I do see Pattaya's demise, although I think it will take some time before what many of us knew of the Pattaya of old just peters out. I don't believe Pattaya will roar back to life when borders do eventually reopen for unrestricted travel. I think a combination of factors such as many bars closed for good, lingering fears about the virus coming back, higher airfares, increased hassles with international travel and a continuing change in the landscape as more service providers move to online models (online escort services, Tinder, cams, OnlyFans etc.) will all send Pattaya along a new path. The nightlife will still exist but it will be smaller than before Covid came along, be less fun and as such demand will drop year after year.....which was happening pre-Covid. I wish this wasn't the case but I just don't think it's going to burst back in to life like when you flick on a lightbulb.
