You can go sit on the beach ( no alcohol)  most bars are closed, some restaurants open especially in the shopping malls ( no alcohol)....  is it a good idea " up to you"

the traffic is very light.

Bad idea, especially right now. Cases are going up

Only on it being sold in restaurants (bars and clubs are closed). You can buy it from supermarkets and 7/11.

Chonburi yes, but how many in Pattaya?

Have you read where the clusters are? Suprise?

I would go if not the family is in the Thai typical Covid panic.

They would probably not let me go back home 😄

 

For a short visit recommended.

Enjoy the sunset at the beach on Jomtien, Paratumnak Soi 5, Sands Cafe e.g.

There seem to be other excellent places in that area.

(which I have not been yet)

Feels like a ban.

Not even allowed to buy on the beach from the deck chair vendors.

(don't rely on brown wrapper)

Not even allowed to buy from shop and sit on the beach with it.

Wearing no mask in public, drinking alcohol are THE money maker for starving police (no helmet-less tourists).

They might do raids and sniff on the coffee cups.

Very desperate.

Re Jomtien alcohol and beaches - there were many Thai families and foreigners on the p*ss the whole way down Jomtien Beach Road tonight at sunset, but obviously bought at 7 11s. Seemed almost like business as usual.

Friends who went to Jomtien Beach last weekend posted photos and videos of drinking beer in their deck chairs. Not saying that's a wise thing to do, all I'm saying is that they didn't even see the need to hide their beer bottles. So yes, definitely quite relaxed.

Police are not enforcing regulations on the beach as you describe. 

I can manage without booze on the beach in the daytime hours but if you can't just be discrete.

Some water parks and other tourist attractions are now open.

Good to know.  Time for a family outing to the beach!

Blimey, where have you been Andy.

You can go onto the beaches but not drink alcohol.

Restaurants are allowed to be open but many have closed up shop...due to lack of business. No alcohol sales with meals.

Bars are all closed... except a few pretending to be restaurants, and not permitted to serve alcohol.

I would say only if you are bringing kids and can enjoy the beach or a hotel pool, and like to wander a Mall.

The ban is drinking on the beach, not the road.

 

Just saying.

No- please stay away. Havnt you heard of Wuflu.  Bangkok is also a hotspot

 

I doubt we'll come anywhere near you; we just plan to stay in the hotel and use the pool, eat in restaurants if we can find any that are open, hangout in Central Festival for an ice-cream or coffee and play on the beach.   Is this OK?

That's if you don't know where and how. Unfortunately I cannot recommend on here. You never know who reads; Maybe big brown brother. 5555

Maybe Jomtien beach over the hill to the south of South Pattaya is the place to go. I have heard that there are a 

few restaurants still open.  You can get some discrete drinks with alcohol included in colored glasses.  Pack a lawn chair and

set it up on the side walk near the street, to avoid the beach situation.  Enjoy looking at the ocean from the street area,

and relax your Bangkok stresses away. 555

Geezer

If not, I am sure the mods will let me know for future reference.
Ask yourself whether you want to go to Pattaya, or stay in Bangkok this trip.

Depressing..... although similar to my own view. I usually pop into Big CX at weekend and may take a stroll down the 3rd Rd and Buakhao areas if feeling like a walk..... and I see similar (if not the damaged shophouses so much). And that is weekend, when there are a few visitors in their Bangkok plate cars.

Not my experience living near the beach, yes there are homeless but "breaking point" is a wild exaggeration. I didn't bother with the video.
