Greetings to all our readers and supporters!

We have gathered together here our top LOCAL stories that happened in our areas, Pattaya and Chonburi, in the last week from Monday, May 27th, to Sunday, June 2nd, 2024.

The stories are chosen by our editorial team and are not in any particular order of importance but roughly in order of publishing.

1. Physical Altercation Between Guards and Customers on Soi 6 in Pattaya Goes Viral

This was by far the most dominant story of the past week. Despite much speculation on social media, the customers involved turned out to not be seriously injured, in fact, even going back out drinking the same night.

2. Pattaya Tourism Industry Aims to Rebrand City Beyond a Nightlife Destination

The meeting followed the viral fight above. It’s important to note this rebranding is more for marketing purposes and not actually any sort of restructuring or reduction of the entertainment industry, instead focused on showing potential tourists what Pattaya has to offer besides bars and entertainment venues.

The event will take place on June 8th with traffic restrictions on Thepprasit Road. This year, due to construction on Jomtien Beach, the parade will march from Colloseum on Thepprasit to Dongtan Beach.
