The End of
Pattaya is experiencing extremely cold weather with temperatures of 24º and below. Usually March, April and May are Pattays's months with the highest temperatures of the year. Weathermen are already predicting the first snow in the resort for April 1st. As with the Nuclear Crisis, experts do not have any logical explanations for the new Glacial period.
On the way...
Sexy A Go-Go on Soi 7 will reopen in a few days. Its face-lifting lasted several weeks longer than anticipated. If its girls are as beautiful as its new entry, the club will write a new and big success story.
The Cavern A Go-Go
On Saturday, March 26th at about 18:00, a blaze closed The Cavern A Go-Go on Walking Street. A short circuit triggered the blaze. The management relocated the ladies to the Beach Club on Soi 15. On March 30th the club reopened after refitting the bar.
Thailand's Ministry of Public Health has issued an official warning against consuming uncooked food during this summer, as food can be easily spoiled due to rising temperatures in summer, and bacteria thrive better during this season, and can cause food poisoning.
Do you know?
The number of prisoners in Thailand outstrips the capacity of jails by 70%. Nevertheless, Pattaya's Police is searching for new potential inmates every single day...
Hot Tuna Dancers?
Hot Tuna Pool Club on Walking Street closed. According to our information it will reopen as a Go-Go Club. And the latest photo from the building site seems to support the information: The construction workers are already preparing the daises for the future dancers.
Thailand is monitoring food delivery from Japan and it is said that nothing with radioactive contaminants will be allowed to reach the Kingdom. However a sauce popular with Thais is freely available: Pla Ra. The sauce contains a trematode parasite called Opisthorchis viverrini. It gets inside your body, swims through to the gall bladder region where it reproduces and sucks your blood. The constant irritation leads to abdominal pain, the blood loss to anemia and even a special cancer of the gall bladder called a cholangiocarcinoma. Thailand's 'highly skilled' health officials seem to ignore home made health risks... For more information please click here!
The new venue next to Luzifer's Disco Club on Pattaya's Walking Street will not be a pizzeria as announced by NightWalker, but a new snack bar called Istanbul Palace. The stone oven will be used to prepare Pide, Lahmacun (the Turkish version of a pizza) and a lot of other specialities from Turkey.
Lucifer told Pattaya-at-Night his hell is hot enough. 'I don't need an additional oven', he said...
Where is Tony's Pizza?
Tony's Snack bar at the entry to Tony's Disco and the new Abbyzz Club has gone. The managers also relocated the orchestra from the right to the left side of the entrance.
Pattaya Mayor warns
Pattaya Mayor Itthiphol Khunpluem warned Pattaya Beach Jet Ski Operators of scamming tourists. 'I have enough', he told them. 'I know your game and your cards have been marked' the Mayor warned the unethical boat operators. With the help of officers from the Pattaya Police Station and the Pattaya Tourist Police jet ski operators extort as much as 300'000 Baht a week from hectored tourists for non-existent damage to rented boats.
On Wednesday night, March 16th, many fishing boats and longtail boats were blown away and sunk by strong winds. Pattaya's Meteorological Department says that during the next few days the Eastern Part of Thailand will receive scattered thunder storms and high winds. Therefore: Do not go outside the bay during the next few days.
Not on Thapphraya Road
but on Walking Street at the entry to Soi 14.
On Friday Night, March 11th, Banglamung District Licensing Officials visited 11 pubs all over Pattaya suspected of being unlicensed and operating outside of designated entertainment zones. The owners and managers were detained. The venues were all ordered to be closed pending the investigation. It was the second raid of the same bars within the last few weeks. They all reopened after the first raid...
On Saturday Night, March 12th, Pattaya Police raided the Differ and Hollywood discos. 120 police officers entered the venues and requested ID's from every visitor. Police also searched for weapons, underaged visitors, drugs and administered urine tests. Tourists who failed to produce ID cards were fined 200 Baht each. Visitors tested positive for drugs were taken to Banglamung Hospital for backup tests.
On Wednesday Night, March 16th 2011, over 100 Policemen checked Bars and Nightclubs in North, Central and South Pattaya as well as on Walking Street. Among many other venues, Insomnia and Mixx Discotheques on Walking Street and the Star Dice Club on Naklua Road had to welcome Pattaya's narks and identity card examiners. The Provincial Governor has ordered these (regular) checks. If you don't want to support these officials financially you always have to carry your ID card (Thais) or your passport (foreigners) with you.
On March 22nd Pattaya Police collected beauties on Pattaya's famous Catwalk, the Beach Promenade, to increase its earnings.
Narak Coffee House opened on Soi Buakhaow just opposite the new Buakhaow hospital. And it's really a lovely (Thai: narak) place!
As indicated in our News Flash last month the failed Soho Square will change its name. It is anticipated that Soho Square will be replaced by Walking Street Plaza as soon as the new Iranian all-in-one venues are ready to welcome their visitors.
The Spicchio Pizza booth at Carrefour's Food Court closed.
Shark Club A-GoGo on Soi Diamond, off Walking Street reopened on March 11th.
On sale at Royal Garden Plaza Pattaya.

The Pattaya Love Bug?
Seen on Pattaya Beach Road: If you drink 3 litres of beer, we give you the fourth litre free... Prost!
Pattaya is a special administrative zone:
Pattaya City Hall decided to adjust law and regulation. The city not even has a law preventing begging. Therefore almost all of Pattaya's beggars are protected by criminals.
The End of Pattaya's Baby Boom?
Baby Boom A Go-Go, off Soi Buakhaow, was closed on Monday, March 7th 2011 and didn't re-open the following days. On March 9th, shortly after midnight, the bilboard was on again, but no activities in the club. Not even the tout(s) were there. Last night the former tout was replaced by a slate...
The ZAB Café, a bar and Restaurant at the entry to Walking Street, repaired its neon sign and changed its format from rather mediocre Elvis and Tina Turner interpretation to mostly happy Thai music.
The reorientation seems to work. The visitors come back, are happy and are dancing. The interactivity between the audience and the musicians is good. The ZAB Café is now some kind of Bamboo Bar, but with Thai music and satisfied customers.
Closed - and reopened
On March 3rd 2011 First A Go-Go on Soi 8 and Moulin Rouge on Walking Street were closed, but both venues reopened a day later.
It seems the venues celebrated an unannounced holiday...
Not Lady GaGa
but 'Papa GaGa' live on Pattaya's Walking Street.

When they will ever learn...
In developed countries traffic lights are usually activated during heavy traffics. Not so in Pattaya. Pattaya shuts down its traffic lights during weekends. Pattaya's traffic police says that Pattaya's Pedestrian Lights are useless and a threat for all drivers of vehicles. Pattaya's taxpayer paid millions of Baht for the 42 new (useless) traffic signals...
Produced, installed during May 2010 and paid, but never used. On December 16th the Chief of the Sea Rescue Teams of Pattaya promised to rectify this shortfall in the near future. Nevertheless, the observation towers are still empty... TiP (This is Pattaya)!
The British Health Protection Agency (HPA) says it is currently investigating if there are any potential risks of infection associated with the commercial use of fish spa pedicures. Alongside with Health Protection Scotland and the Health and Safety Laboratory, the HPA will examine the most up to date evidence of any possible risks associated with Garra Rufa fish pedicures and will publish guidelines. Tiny Garra Rufa fish are a type of toothless carp that nibble on the dead skin. In the US some states have banned the use of Garra Rufa fish over health and safety concerns of having the same fish clean the skin of multiple customers. Pattaya-at-Night already warned customers of using Fish Spas in our January 2010 News Flash.
Titty Twister too!
The Darling Bar on Pattaya's 3rd Road, at the entry to Pattaya's famous Buffalo Bar, changed its name: Titty Twister 2!
Titty Twister (number 1) is located on the (very) dark side of Pattaya, Soi 28, off Sai Nernplabwan (Sai Muslim).
Something very special?
Works are still on the way at the (temporarily) closed Sexy A Go-Go bar on Soi 7. The venue was announced to reopen on February 15th...
Lady's Shadow at the Absolute Entertainment Complex on Walking Street changed its name and its format: The new Polo Club presents Thai Ladies and 'Striptis On Stage'...

Stop Nuclear Power Projects forever!
Tourists want a Nuclear Power free Thailand.
Sooner or later nuclear energy will destroy your life.
Small amounts of radiation from Japan's leaking nuclear power plant have spread across Asia, authorities said Tuesday (March 29th, 2011). The governments of China, South Korea, the Philippines and Vietnam reported that radiation had drifted over their territories, although they emphasised the levels currently (March 30th, 2011) are so small that there is no health risk...
Environmentalists and villagers from Trat, Chumphon, Nakhon Sawan, Surat Thani, Ubon Ratchathani, Khon Kaen, Kalasin and Prachuap Khiri Khan have formed an alliance called the Network of People Against Nuclear Power Plants to protest against the planned construction of nuclear power plants in their provinces. Thailand's Government announced to halt plans to build nuclear power plants in Thailand. Update: Energy Minister Medical Doctor Wannarat Channukul confirmed that Thailand has not yet scrapped the feasibility study of constructing hundreds of 1'000-megawatt nuclear power plants across the country. But the project will not be raised to the attention of the cabinet very soon, the unconvincable Minister told the press. It is known that Nuclear Plants not only generate electricity and uncontrollable waste, but also a huge amount of Tea-Money.
Koh Samui Flooded!
Airport closed since Monday March 28th.
Thousands of tourists were stranded on Koh Samui as ferry services to and from Samui have been cancelled since Monday March 28th, 2011. Thai Airways as well as Bangkok Airways have cancelled all flights to the island.
Heavy rain and associated flooding across Southern Thailand disrupting transport, tourism and day-to-day business. All train services to the South of Thailand have been suspended because of the heavy flooding. Authorities in Koh Samui started evacuating people to temples on high ground after heavy rains caused flash floods that destroyed roads and disrupted communications. Koh Samui faces floodings almost every year, but this flood is the worst the island has experienced this decade, Koh Samui's mayor said.

Amazing High Technology
It seems that Thai people prefer to have a completely distorted view of our world, as some of Thailand's politicians and TV commentators.
Subanahongsa in Pattaya
Subanahongsa is Thailand's Answer to Hollywood's Oscar Awards
On March 06th 2011 Thailand's Film Industry celebrated itself at CentralFestival. Almost all big names in Thailand's Movies and Soap Operas arrived on Beach Road and used the red carpet down to Pattaya's most popular Shopping Center.
Kantana, a Soap Opera producer, MCOT, Thailand's largest media conglomerate and the operator of Modernine TV (Channel 9) and BBTV, the operator of Channel 7 parked their trucks around the Shopping Center to broadcast whole or at least the major parts of the evening.

Save Water - Drink Beer and avoid Coffee & Milk!
Shoes and clothes are among the largest wasters of water: A simple Cotton T-shirt is wasting 2'000 litres and a pair of Leather Shoes 8'000 litres of water. Pattaya-at-Night and its contributers are therefore urging all governments to ban the production, the selling and the use of shoes and clothes all over the world. If nobody is wearing shoes and clothes we not only can save a lot of water, we don't need A Go-Go and Striptease Clubs anymore, we even can mull a lot of stupid regulations (and the paper they are printed on) as well as some of our corrupt police officials.
Pattaya-at-Night likes 'Experts'. They usually speak before they start thinking. Water isn't lost. It circulates in a hydrological cycle.
Behind the scene Pattaya City is dirty. A paradies for straying dogs and rats, even if the location is only a few meters in front of a nice apartment house...

In Pattaya, Naklua and Jomtien time is relative, as in other parts of Thailand.

The Honorable Pattaya Culture Council released the slogan for this year's Songkran Festival:
Pattaya looks Fresh with Flower Shirts!
The council promotes a unique floral shirt for people to wear during the whole month of April. A nice idea. Nevertheless, is it appropriate to ask if somebody in the council has a connection to a certain clothmaker?
We just learned that our NightWalker is wearing a shirt with the motif pictured above. Is he the one with the probably lucrative connection?
Our nuclear reactors are in full control of us...
How stupid I have to be to be a Politician?
First these people sell all kind of arms to a Libyan colonel & terrorist and then they try to forbid him to use the weapons...
As long as Murphy's Law is with us there isn't any real security in any high technology product. Not with mobile phones and not with nuclear devices.
From a Visitor's e-mail
Thanks for your candid, revealing site. As a result of your honesty in relating experience and advice, I have decided I will NOT be going to Thailand. If all I wanted was the lying, cynical, gold digging, duplistic kind of female association, I could just plan my trip here, in the states.
On February 9th 2011 Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva said he will call elections by the end of June 2011. On February 22nd Abhisit's cabinet has extended the government's policy of limited free bus and train travel, and free electricity for small users, until June 2011. The naughty little beggars are buying votes - this time with Taxpayer's very own money!
Consumers to finance Thailand's upcoming election campaign?
Thailand is one of the largest producers of palm oil in the world, but the cooking oil shelves at almost all shops are empty. A shortage of cooking oil... Refiners, distributors and retailers are accused of hoarding the oil. Moreover it is said that politicians are allegedly facilitating the shortage in exchange for funds they will need for the upcoming election. But Thailand's Department of Special Investigation (DSI) has found no irregularities in palm oil stocks... Therefore the main question remains unanswered: Where all the oil has gone?
The Cheap Way
to Win the Election
Vote buying requires at least 5-10 million Baht, the deputy chief of the centre of investigation under the Metropolitan Police Bureau says. Therefore killing politicians during the lead-up to an election is a common tactic to eliminate opponents. It's an inexpensive investment, hiring a gunman costs between 100'000 and 300'000 Baht only, the police chief said after the first eliminations of opponents already occured.
