      I wouldn't mind spending self isolation at my pool villa in Patts, and opening a temporary womens shelter.

        Examining them very closely for signs of Corona infection daily, of course.
        Direct sunlight kills the virus, so strictly no clothes by the poolside.

          Mongers are going thru withdrawal...
          God, the panic within the Dems, MSM, and left must be horrifying...realizing that Joe is really the best they've got.

            This doesn't make much sense unless the authorities are planning to lock the city down with a 24hr curfew.

              Still can't figure out why you would want to live there but those that do must come from some pretty awful places

              Then there's the condo prices, why do farang pay such over-inflated prices for a shoe box? Farang dumb-dumb

                Stroller doesn't live in Pattaya. Neither do I, but I used to- and still have a darkside villa. Wish I was there now, providing shelter to needy women.

                You clearly don't know Pattaya at all Tinkles (but I bin to Walking St!). You can get a perfectly livable condo for 2mm- or you can spend 20mm+. Depends on budget, but I recommend renting anyway- wish I had. Pattaya is not expensive at all- if you are really on a budget, you can live there just as cheap as Isaan, but have infinitely more choice.

                I would say, based on the traditional measures, the Darkside offers the best quality of life in Thailand available right now. Lifestyle, choice and budget. But of course if you prefer the village, well you wouldn't try to sell an Ozark hillbilly the virtues of living in downtown Chicago would you? each to there own.

                  You're ignoring the elephant in the room sabang. Dual-pricing. Services for car repairs to A/C maintenance are inflated for the Farang.
                  Your cost for a baht bus ride is more than a local Thai's price.
                  I saw it coming in 1980 and moved house to Bang Saray.

                    Are you confusing Pattaya & Phuket? Or still reminiscing RnR days?

                      K. sabang...dual pricing exists here in several areas but most pervasively found in, as you mention - Phuket. Followed closely by Pattaya, certain areas of Bangkok and Chaing Mai as well.

                      Wherever you have a congregation of Farang here in LOS, there's a two-tiered price system in place.

                        Pattaya to adjust lockdown


                        PATTAYA: After a chaotic first day featuring traffic jams at overwhelmed checkpoints, Pattaya City officials have been forced to adjust their lockdown as they try to curb the spread of Covid-19.

                        In addition to changing the locations of the checkpoints, authorities will focus their attention on securely locking down an inner part of the city where about 2,800 foreign tourists are staying and most of the infections have occurred, starting on Tuesday.

                        The full lockdown to outsiders began on Thursday with five checkpoints set up on roads leading into the city. But there was an unexpectedly heavy impact on local residents even though they gave full cooperation to officials, Pattaya Mayor Sonthaya Khunpluem conceded on Friday.

                        People entering the town were being screened at points on five main access routes: Soi Chaiyapornvithee, Motorway Route 2 in front of the Highway Police office, Soi Pornprapanimit, Soi Chayaporn, and Sukhumvit Road near the Office of the Public Prosecutor in front of Na Jomtien temple.

                        As it turned out, many of the people arriving at the checkpoints had no intention of entering the town, but simply wanted to travel to adjacent areas such as Sattahip, downtown Chon Buri or other municipal areas linked with Pattaya City.

                        The result was traffic congestion along the roads leading to the checkpoints, said Mr Sonthaya.

                        This prompted Bang Lamung district chief Amnart Charoensri to call for changes, as his district includes part of Pattaya City. The city communicable disease control committee met on Thursday night to come up with ways to minimise the impacts on people, said the mayor.

                        The lockdown plan has not been scrapped as the spread of Covid-19 must be contained, insisted Mr Sonthaya, a former tourism minister.

                        More than 2,800 foreigners are still staying in the inner zone of the town and this is where the new effort will be concentrated. Of the 33 Covid-19 infections recorded in Pattaya, 26 were in this area, said the mayor.

                        He ordered the five existing checkpoints on the east side of the town scrapped and the barriers removed. New checkpoints are expected to function more efficiently and help prevent the spread of the virus.

                        The new checkpoints would be set up at Dolphin Circle; the entrance of Pattana Nua (North Pattaya) at the Prinya Sai 3 intersection; Pattaya Klang (Central Pattaya) at Soi Arunothai; Pattaya Tai (South Pattaya) at Soi Kophai; and Jomtien checkpoint on Jomtien Sai 2 Road.
