Pattaya, the 26th of July 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: Beach bed operators were run off their feet and the seas inundated with eager swimmers as all and sundry flocked to the Pattaya beaches over the long weekend to enjoy a fun filled day in the sun.

Apart from the inevitable traffic jams, reported from Sriracha all the way into Pattaya at certain points of the day, Asarnha Bucha celebrations and the extra day off work that it afforded were enjoyable for all.

Food, merchandise and water activity business all reported remarkable numbers visiting the Jomtien and Pattaya beaches, while all beamed at the positive sales that ensued. One local Som-tam vendor, operating at Jomtien, remarked that it was the busiest day he had had since the end of the New Year high season.

Families were in abundance as the elderly sat under the shade of umbrella’s while children and eager adults alike positively invaded the waters as the sun and temperate weather maintained. Despite fears of an afternoon down poor, the heavens held back until later in the evening, when most had moved on.

Reportedly, Jomtien beach received the majority of traffic, with locals and tourist alike looking to take advantage of the bigger beach and comparatively cleaner waters.

One eager tourist, Khun Orm, explained that she always brought her family to Pattaya for the long weekend revealing yesterday’s turnout as the biggest she has seen in a long time.

Meanwhile, today the tourists have remained, albeit in less numbers, whilst many locals have resumed or are preparing for commencing the working week, starting tomorrow.
