More than twenty events will be held in Pattaya this year to boost domestic tourism with a ‘New Normal’ style, according to Pattaya City Mayor Sonthaya Khunplume and city officials.
The Pattaya Public Relations Office has officially announced the events scheduled for this year so far. Some events that the city says will happen sometime this year, like the popular fireworks festival, have not yet been announced and will come later. Pattaya has not yet decided if they will have a Songkran festival and the matter is still being discussed, although the Thai Government has approved the festival with proper Covid-19 precautions.
