  1. I saw Eddie Money here....First concert I ever went to.....Over 100,000 people....Texxas Jam July,1, 1978....I have never seen so many people smoking weed all in one place in all my life...It was insane....
  2. This is just a walking street observation.....There use to be just a few Indian clubs on the far end of walking street....But over the last year or 2 the Indian clubs seem to be multiplying and they are slowly moving up walking street....And it looks like even more will open soon.. If new Indian clubs keep on opening we might be looking at a nice chunk of walking street being wall to wall Indian clubs in a few years.....
  3. Me......3-2-4-1..... One- I would not take.... 4- I most likely would not take... 2- I might take if she had a good attitude.. 3- I would for sure take..
  4. I guess you also were quite happy when they turned Pattayas ONLY park at Bali-hi into a fucking parking garage... The more McDonalds, Starbucks and shopping malls the better right? Dont tell me...I bet your one of those style-less socks and sandals kind of guys....
  5. The whole thing is wrong on many many levels....Even if the Embassy was not needed the land and building were a treasure...Turning the place into a shopping mall is grotesque....To top it off the sales money is now lost forever in some budgetary black hole..
  6. Maybe they should move the British Embassy to a garage in Palo Alto....For a fresh start to rebuild the empire.....
  7. Let me put it to you like this Would Microsoft or Apple run their business out of a shared working space in a warehouse with a bunch of other businesses? Hell no they would not.... Why ? Because Top companies want to let people know they are top companies.... England has just thrown in the towel on being a Top country......Kind of like the Pound....
  8. If they dont say what they are going to do then I would say the odds swing in favor of them doing no good...
  9. Well like I already said many times a lot of the numbers are just my observations with some help with TripAdvisor restaurant reviews... Getting exact numbers for restaurants is a almost impossible task.....The Indian restaurant number I know that one to be the most accurate because I have done some rough counts of them myself.... Malaysians dont really open many Malaysian restaurants in Thailand do they? So I just left them out.....
  10. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tourism_in_Thailand Arrivals by Nationality in Thailand for the year 2018 rounded off..... China 10,500,000 South Korea and Japan 3,400,000 USA and the UK and Australia and Canada 3,200,000 Germany and Italy and France 1,930,000 India 1,600,000 Russia 1,500,000 Ok lets look at the number of restaurants in Pattata that are oriented towards different nationalities..... The Chinese and South Koreans and Japanese are the largest group of tourist at 13,900,000 people a year in Thailand. Chinese and South Korean and Japanese restaurants ..... Considering these nationalities have the most tourist numbers you would expect for there to be a lot of these restaurants in Pattaya.....And there are....Not so many in the streets but tons in the malls.....Just as a rough guess I would say there are probably at least 200 to 300+ of Chinese and South Koreans and Japanese restaurants in Pattaya..... Who eats at these restaurants?.....Well #1 are the Chinese and South Koreans and Japanese but pretty much all nationalities eat at them..The Thais love the hell out of them, the farang numbers are less but plenty of farangs do eat at these restaurants and the Indians are in very short supply at these restaurants...... So because of the huge numbers of Chinese ,South Koreans and Japanese plus the Thais and farangs its no surprise at all these China, South Korea and Japan restaurants are well supported...... The USA, UK , Australia and Canadians, This is the 2nd largest group of tourist at 3,200,000 people a year in Thailand. Just to make this easy lets just call any restaurant that serves predominately English food a English pub....Also all fast food McDonalds Burger King etc are excluded.... ......I will also throw in the steak houses here too and Top end hamburgers joints... Again this is only a guess and because we have had some English pub closing recently this will knock my guess down a little but I would guess about 75+? English restaurants in Pattaya give or take.... Who eats at the English restaurants?.....#1 would be all English speaking farangs #2 would be all the rest of the Europeans and a fair amount of Russians..The Thai women seem happy enough to eat here as long as they are not paying...lol.....But Thais eating on their own here are in short supply.... The Chinese and South Koreans and Japaneese might eat here on occasion as a one off but I dont get the feeling they make a habit out of it.......And the Indians are again in very short supply.... So even though this is the 2nd largest group of tourist who did spend very freely for the last 2 decades until the recent decline in the exchange rates they were only able to support about 75+? give or take restaurants...These are just rough guesses... Germany and Italy and France at 1,930,000 is the 3rd largest group of tourist.....There are a number of German and Italian and French restaurants in Pattaya.....I am not sure exactly how many but if I had to take a guess I would say again about 75+? give or take.....Its hard to give a exact number because some restaurants serve many kinds of food... The German , Italian , French ,USA , UK , Australia and Canadian restaurants have kind of the same kind of customers.....Combine the 5,100,000 The German and Italian , French , USA , UK , Australia and Canadian tourist and they can support about 150+? give or take restaurants pretty well...... Next lets take the Russians....The Russia have 1,500,000 tourist a year 100,000 less than the Indians......I personally do not know of any Russian restaurants in Pattaya but I think their are some in Jomtien...I am sure there is not a lot of them but lets just say there are 10-20 Russian restaurants in Pattaya.... Next lets take the Indians......Up util about the year 2011 Pattaya had what I would consider a normal number of Indian restaurants for a city of Pattayas size.....In the year 2011 900,000 Indians came as tourist to Thailand.....I do not know exactly how many Indian restaurants Pattaya had in 2011 but if I had to take a wild guess I would guess about 30-40....Quite a few really but nothing crazy.....Plenty to support the 900,000 Indian tourist plus the farangs that wanted Indian food..... Then around 2012 more Indian restaurants started to open and then more and then more and more and then an absolute avalanche of Indian restaurants began sprouting like mushrooms in Pattaya.... Now I would guess (this is a very rough count I have made) there has to be a minimum of at least 250-260 Indian restaurants in Pattaya.....I know this may sound like a crazy number but there may actually be a lot more I am just to lazy to get a more exact number... So in 2011 when Thailand had 900,000 Indian tourist, 30-40 Indian restaurants were enough to handle the demand but in 2018 with just 700,000 more Indian tourist in Thailand Pattaya now needs 250-260 Indian restaurants??? And more keep opening all the time??? And who is eating at these Indian restaurants?.....Well I have NEVER seen a Thai eating in a Indian restaurant ever NOT ONE.....Except maybe a few Thai women who were dragged in by farangs....I also recall seeing virtually zero Chinese , South Koreans or Japaneese in Indian restaurants......Once in a blue moon you will see a farang in a Indian restaurant but not very often ...... So basically your left with just the Indians eating at the Indian restaurants and not even all of them because the Indian restaurants are expensive in Pattaya so Indians on a tight budget could not even afford it....... So in summary we have...... 13,900,000 Chinese and South Koreans and Japaneese plus the Thais and farangs supporting about 200 to 300+ Chinese ,South Korean and Japaneese restaurants pretty well... 5,100,000 German, Italian, French ,USA, UK , Australia and Canadians supporting about give or take about 150+? restaurants pretty well...... 1,500,000 Russians supporting 10-20 restaurants ... And wait for it......Drum roll....... 1,600,000 Indians supporting 250-260 Indian restaurants in Pattaya with almost ZERO help from any other nationality??? Conclusion......1,600,000 Indians can not support 250-260 Indian restaurants in Pattaya its impossible....100% 1000% impossible...Yet some how the Indian restaurants stay open and more keep opening all the time...????????????? Hell there may be lots more Indian restaurants in a few years time if they forever keep opening new ones....
  11. CM went up for sale a whopping one month after it was opened.....I will say Robbin has a real talent for getting the punters in the door and getting out the back door with a profit....I bet the HH will be up for sale too...
