Pattaya is holding a socially distanced exhibition at Central Pattaya Beach from today (April 16th) to April 19th.
The Pattaya City Mayor Sonthaya Khunplume and the Pattaya City Deputy Mayor Ronnakit Eakkasing inspected Pattaya Beach yesterday (April 15th) before the exhibition starts officially today (April 16th).
The exhibition theme is traditional Thai in a new normal style with the cooperation of Pattaya City, the Office of Small and Medium Enterprise Promotion (OSMEP), the Chonburi Chamber of Commerce, and the Pattaya Business and Tourism Association.
The event starts today (April 16th) to April 19th which is aimed to boost tourism and help business operators, SMEs, and local operators.
More than one hundred booths of shops, restaurants, and activities highlighting Thai culture and Thai tradition will be at the event. The kite festival will also continue on North Pattaya Beach until April 19th.
This exhibition is being held under Covid-19 rules and requires mask-wearing, social distancing, usage of check-in applications for contact tracing, hand sanitizer usage, and other Covid-19 precautions. It is an outdoor event so according to city officials potential risk of the spread of Covid-19 is significantly lower than inside venues.
The event is a replacement for the normal Songkran festival at this time of year that normally sees intense water fights and partying. Entertainment venues remain closed until further notice due to Covid-19.
