Pattaya Is Dead

Soi 6 to Walking Street on a Baht Bus

This video was taken in early May 2014, before the Military Coup of Thailand 2014. I am on a Baht Baht Bus (songthaew) coming along beach Road from Soi 6 and heading towards Walking Street in Pattaya Thailand. You can see from this video that Pattaya is Dead.

Beach Road and the Soi’s along it are very empty. Not many tourists at all.
