Pattaya’s world famous Walking Street technically open for business, but still without tourists and limited local residents-Photo tour


A photo gallery look at the Pattaya Walking Street on a Monday night (February 8th) without tourists in Pattaya. We have posted a video of this trip under our video section.

The Pattaya News visited the Pattaya Walking Street in South Pattaya last night.

The place has traditionally been very famous for both Thai and foreign tourists.

Some bars and nightclubs are still opened until 11 P.M. following the recent Covid – 19 measurements.

Most of the tourists who visited the Walking Street area last night were domestic Thai tourists or local residents.

Many bars, clubs, and shops are available for sale and rent, but in the current market are unlikely to have any buyers.

Additionally, an underground cable project on the walking street is also being constructed, a year-long project that is likely to cause additional pain for business owners.

Although most of the tourist reliant areas of town have been badly hit by the Covid-19 related border restrictions and rules, parts popular with ex-pats like LK Metro and Soi Buakhao have managed to retain a customer base, although nothing close to what it was prior to the pandemic. Additionally, this was filmed on a Monday, arguably the slowest night of the week.

A holiday weekend for Chinese New Year is this weekend and local officials hope it will bring more domestic tourists to the area. Bangkok remains a “dry” zone with bars and nightclubs closed so it is possible some people come to visit over this weekend.
