Pattaya Mayor, Itthiphon Khunpluem revealed the activities being prepared to attract local tourism after the effects of the political crisis. The earliest one occurring this month is a walking-run to worship Visakha Bucha Day on 28th May 2010 at TAT Pattaya office.


Secondly it will be the Music Award Contest hosted by Pattaya Music Association and Pop Music Channel on 14th June 2010 at Bali Hai Pier. The greatest festivity of the year will be Pattayas Marathon on 18th June 2010.  In addition to this, it is expected that Pattaya, Thailand will be host to the Asian Marathon in 2012, welcoming many international athletes and tourists coming to visit. In August, there will be an International Fireworks Festival which is to be organised around the celebrations for Her Majesty the Queens 78th birthday. Twelve of the international competitors will be joining the firework display, on 14th August 2010 at Pattaya Beach Road. 


All stated activities are expected to be stimulating and uplifting in this situation. The special promotion packages arranged in conjunction of TAT Pattaya,

Pattaya Business Association and other offices are still on going to welcome tourists to the wonderful beach resort.

Pattaya Mayor stated that the TAT Pattaya office will correspond with the different embassies in order to convince them that there will not be any violent incidents occurring in Pattaya.


PATA is to help shape a recovery plan for tourism in Thailand

PATA HQ and the PATA Chapter in Thailand will ‘assist the TAT in the recovery phase’. Also present at the meeting, held in Bangkok, was immediate-past PATA Chairman Mrs Phornsiri Manoharn. Mrs Manoharn is a former Governor of the TAT.

“PATA emphasises that travel to Thailand is still safe. The major part of Bangkok remains open and accessible for tourists and business travelers with hotels, shops and tourist sites open for business. The popular tourist resorts such as Phuket, Koh Samui, Krabi and Pattaya are unaffected by the protests in Bangkok city centre,” says PATA CEO Greg Duffell. “Our previous advice in respect of Bangkok city centre remains in place. Tourists and business travellers should avoid the designated danger zone and heed the advice offered by embassies and consulates.”

The headquarters of the Pacific Asia Travel Association in Bangkok is located inside the ‘danger zone’ and remains closed today (Wednesday 19 May) on the advice of the security forces and the building’s management team.

Although PATA has been forced to cease operations at its Bangkok HQ the Association’s head office staff continue to work from home and may be contacted on their respective PATA e-mail addresses. This is despite the fact that the Royal Thai Government has declared 19, 20 and 21 May as additional public holidays in Bangkok.

PATA yesterday (18 May) staged a one-day staff training programme at a major city centre hotel well away from the area occupied by the protesters.

A number of PATA staff that live inside the ‘danger zone’ have been relocated on a temporary basis to safer accommodation. Several foreign embassies have closed and are now operating from temporary locations. Foreign nationals should check embassy and consulate websites for further details and latest travel/safety advisories.

The city’s subway and skytrain systems continue to be affected and hotels located within the protest zone have closed. Some PATA member offices have also been forced to shut down.
