Photo Tour: Pattaya’s Walking Street Shuts Down Bars Prior to Thai Elections

Pattaya, Thailand-

Thailand is in the evening before its major general election and as a result of Thai law alcohol sales have been shut down nationwide.

As for our photo tour, here is the scene on the ground tonight. Some confused tourists were seen wandering around wondering why bars, gogos, and nightclubs were closed but overall traffic was much less than usual on Pattaya’s famous Walking Street, the epicenter of the nightlife industry in Pattaya.

Cannabis shops and restaurants were open but traffic at both was fairly light, impacted by traffic on the street overall. Enough talk let’s look at the photos!
