“They must have gone to the temples instead!” – Pattaya as dead as a dodo in the holidays

Sophon Cable TV were down at Jomtien beach yesterday wondering where all the tourists went. 

There was a two day holiday but virtually no tourists – certainly nothing like last years Buddhist holiday double header. 

As local shops and pubs went dry due to an alcohol ban deckchair vendor Pongsak Uapongkarun suggested a reason for the lack of visitors:

“It looks like they have gone to the temples and places where there are religious festivals. The families are certainly not coming to the beach. It’s 50% down on last year”. 

He also took aim at the world economy for taking away his livelihood. 

Speedboat operator Uthit Attasaengsee painted an even greater picture of gloom. No one was taking recreational trips on his boat and business was down 80% year on year he reckoned. 

He called on someone, somewhere to do something about it. 

No one suggested who that might be.
