Pattaya, the 28th of January 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: Deputy Pattaya City Mayor Wattana Jantarawaranon announced to the gathered media, public organisation heads and honorary guests and officials that the “100 Year Naklua Market” will be reviewed due to declining revenue and attendance it was experiencing. Funded by the council the market was setup in order to rival other markets in Pattaya and attract a greater tourist interest to the area. Although, initially having some success, the markets influence is continuing to dwindle.

 

Pattaya City Secretary Mr. Phoompipat Kamolrat chaired the meeting revealing that after the markets initial success the downturn in interest and revenue creation was a cause for concern that must be addressed. Mr. Kamolrat stated that the traffic problem, location, irregular weather and variety of operators were responsible for the markets downturn.

Deputy Mayor Jantarawaranon stated that the market appeared to move away from the original concepts which made it successful. Mr. Jantarawaranon emphasised the need to present colourful displays, products and items for sale with a traditional Thai theme and unique displays of Thai culture offered to the visiting public. Also noting the need for the market to returning to the way it was when it was established. Another meeting has been scheduled for next month when the new changes will have been introduced and a review will take place.
