    OK sabang, got to admit that the weather is a tad cooler (obviously by it's location to the Gulf) than Issan but the thing is, Pattaya attracts the scam artists like Rude Noise (Drew Noyse). Remember him? Got busted for attempting to swindle that OZ Medical Equipment outfit.

    The Police lineup had him and one of his old ladies - a Ms.Wanrappa (a rather fetching lass) featured on the front page of the local newspaper.
    God, the panic within the Dems, MSM, and left must be horrifying...realizing that Joe is really the best they've got.

    • Yeh for sure- many more than Drew Noyes too. It's a cosmopolitan city. That means rich/ poor; monger/ non; working/ not; honest/ dishonest; good bloke/ scumbag etc etc. Like any other city. Of course, expat places tend to attract expat conmen- HH & Phuket no different, or Bkk for boiler room scum.

      • Ironically (but not surprisingly) the best site by far to catch up with Skullduggery in Thailand (farang & Thai) is Andrew Drummond- and it is banned in Thailand!

        He himself fled Thailand a few years ago, pursued by death threats and spurious libel cases, but he continues to publish. Great stuff, if you know how to get around Thai censorship walls.

          Ahem...that's gotta be the most specious excuse for rationalizing Pattaya's reputation I've heard in a long time...(groan)

            • ^^ Why so booner? Every city has a variety of folk. Because numbers. Pattaya is exceptionally multicultural for it's size- even most of the locals are not from Chonburi. To many of us, that is part of it's charm. Doesn't mean everyone is good Mr Rogers though, obviously. Is everyone in Isaan?

              ^Good stuff. I couldn't get it at all in Thailand, except via dodgy means.TAT. Anyway, good read.

                Not much in the way of current items on that site. I wonder what Mr Drummond is actually doing for a living.

                There's not much call for the old style hard copy "Scoop Drummond" type journalist nowadays, internet news has beaten the mainstream media.

                    Night Owl was Bernard Trink who wrote for a tabloid called the Bangkok World, which printed in red ink, back in the early eighties. His quality weekly column included such gems as "Go-go dancer of the week". He later moved to the Bangkok Post, though I believe he then toned things down a bit.

                    The old perv even has his own wikipedia page.

                      That's right - the Bangkok Post is where I first saw his 'work'

                      The guy was somewhat shameless in that he'd haul his poor begotten wife along with him when he interviewed girls in Pat Pong because he didn't speak Thai.

                      • ^Speaking of the old days, does anyone recall the :Shrimp: calendars?

                        It was published yearly in the eighties and contained semi nude but rather tastefully photographed Thai girls. Kind of like an up market garage calendar.

                          Yeah, I remember those. This was all before the world got PC and we had Rigid Tool calendars too.

                            • CORONAVIRUS: ALL HOTELS IN PATTAYA ORDERED TO CLOSE

                              All hotels in Pattaya and elsewhere throughout Chonburi province in eastern Thailand have been ordered to temporarily close in a sustained effort to contain the COVID-19 pandemic.

                              Chonburi Provincial Governor Phakharathorn Thianchai confirmed on Friday that he has imposed the latest measure against the COVID-19 spread by temporarily shutting down all hotels in Pattaya and Chonburi until further notice.

                              Any hotels where some guests might currently stay are obliged to notify respective chief district officers within three days, according to the provincial governor.

                              Meanwhile, all hotel employees are prohibited from leaving Pattaya or Chonburi where entry and exit of other people, especially including foreign visitors, are yet to undergo a stepped-up screening process, Phakharathorn said.

                              All tattoo parlors, nail salons and open-air marketplaces in Pattaya and Chonburi have also been ordered to temporarily close, he said.: https://www.khaosodenglish.com/news/...ered-to-close/

                              • Pattaya mayor to impose stricter lockdown


                                Pattaya will enforce a ramped-up coronavirus lockdown tomorrow with more screening checkpoints being set up.

                                Pattaya mayor Sonthaya Khunpluem said the number of checkpoints has been increased from five to eight along Sukhumvit Road leading to the city to screen vehicles and people entering.

                                Non-residents or people not working in Pattaya will not be allowed entry to the city until the situation returns to normal.

                                Most of those infected in Pattaya are foreigners and those who work closely with foreigners, Mr Sonthaya claimed.

                                Checkpoints have been spread across the town in order to prevent traffic congestion caused by motorists entering Pattaya via Sukhumvit Road.

                                People who are not residents but have to work in Pattaya can obtain passes permitting them to enter and leave the city at the Pattaya provincial hall or apply for one at all 7-11 stores in the city, or download one at https://www.pattaya.go.th/permission-certificate/.

                                People who hold house registrations in Banglamung district must also show their ID cards, along with the passes when going through the checkpoints, while those who live outside the Banglamung area but have to travel to work in Pattaya must also have letters signed by their employers.

                                The latter must also show letters signed by their landlords, community leaders, or community committee members.

                                Lorry drivers delivering goods in Pattaya must show letters as well as invoices from their companies, and those who have appointments with doctors must have an appointment letter from a doctor, Mr Sonthaya said.: https://www.bangkokpost.com/learning...kdown#cxrecs_s
