The following is our regular feature: We ask our readers a topical news question and get their insight and opinions. We then share their feedback about a week later and pick a variety of diverse and exciting responses.

This week, we want to ask: 

Do You Feel Pattaya Is Safe?

Some context around this question: We have recently seen a number of comments and concerns from Pattaya News readers asking if Pattaya is safe, especially for tourists, following a number of public (Mostly Thai on-Thai) incidents, such as this murder on Pattaya Beach. We know our opinion on this topic, but want YOURS as readers. Do you feel Pattaya is safe? Do you have any tips or suggestions on staying safe? Have you ever had a close call or scary incident in Pattaya?  

We look forward to hearing from you! Tell us on our social media channels, in the comments below, or if you prefer your comment to be private mail us at We will publish the results and select a variety of diverse responses early next week, as always!
