The following is our weekly feature in which we highlight and review the top five local stories over the past week in Pattaya, as chosen by our editorial team. This allows our residents and readers to quickly get caught up on the most important stories without reading through every article daily.
They are in no particular level of importance. The following is from November 22nd to November 28th, 2020.
1. Will Pattaya recover faster tourism wise than the rest of Thailand when borders open?
More of an opinion than news, however relevant to our readers, especially those who have a high interest in Pattaya.

3. Air pollution woes hit Pattaya
It’s that time of year again when air pollution, much of it caused by burning trash and sugar cane fields outside of the area, drift across Pattaya and Chonburi. Residents have been advised to use caution. The pollution issues have dramatically improved this week, however.

A missing woman who worked in the Pattaya beer bar industry and was being sought by her Mother was successfully found in Sattahip, safe but suffering from mental illness. She was taken to a hospital for treatment.
