Replacement of neon signs in Walking Street

On Tuesday September 12th, a meeting was held by Pattaya City officials to discuss the replacement of the neon signs which currently light up Walking Street.

About a month ago, there were discussions regarding dragging all the signs down, as they did not meet the official regulation set out by city hall, even though they have been that way for a number of years already.

This was met with obvious disapproval by almost everyone in Pattaya, which promted the powers that be to come up with a new plan, in which the old signs would be replaced by new, modern looking signs that met the safety regulation set out by City Hall.

A win win situation for everyone, it seems.

At the meeting, artistic plans were unveiled showing what Walking Street could potentially look like once the plans had be completed. The plans are currently still under discussion and no final decisions have been made.

The meeting also unveiled the new guidelines for the signs in Walking street which are to be followed by all businesses wishing to advertise their venue.

Questions were invited and answered by the head of the meeting and overall there was a positive feeling when it was time to bring the meeting to a close.

The discussions will be ongoing over the next couple of weeks until a final plan is put into place.

    Walking St will never ever look anything like that artists impression.
    Where are all the criminal Thai men with their scams?
    Where are all the rice farmers daughters shouting at passers by?
    Where is all the litter, filth and squalor?
    Where are all the deviant Thai men in frocks?
    Where are all the gawping Chinese tour groups?
    Where are all the marauding drunks?

    • Danny

      Kenny, what you say is true, all of it but those things are the things that draw visitors to the seedy place that it is in the first place. Leave it alone I say. Is walking street baron of visitors? Huh?
      These monkeys are fooling nobody with their frequent meetings, whatever they say the opposite is truer.

      • Ken Anderson

        Just like removing street vendors etc etc. They really have no idea why people come here.
        Do they think it is to admire the stunning architecture, and sit on the pristine tropical beaches? Unfortunately I seem to feel they may do.

        • Danny

          hahahhaaa… laughable isn’t it. Geeesh, these people have no clue why people visit Thailand

        • ilovebangkok

          just why do you think the ivans and chinks come here?

          • weasel

            can put up with the tiddly winks, the ivans and their ugly women. NO.

          • Sly

            Because they can’t afford to go to a decent beach resort. As soon as they can they will.

    • private pile

      My thoughts exactly never in a million years will it look anything like that

    • Robins

      Love the tour groups, nothing more fun than seeing a red light zone in a group of 40 and with your wife next to you.

  • Homebrew

    If the new signs will be installed by Thai electricians, I don’t see how that would be any safer.

    • Make sure they are Squirrel proof!

      • popeye the sailorman

        haa haa good one….

    • Gary

      Will the city pay for the new signs? NO way. Many business owners paid a lot of baht for their fancy signs. They will certainly not be happy to have to take them down. The barn door was left open for far too long. The signs already, apparently lawfully exist. It’s too late to change the rules now.

  • ken

    The best neon sign for walking street is the one that reads CLOSED!

    • popeye the sailorman

      no IT IS A HAPPY ZONE remember this statement ???!! long time ago…

    • private pile

      10s are starfishes 555

      • senira

        Only if you’re fat and old 😉

        • weasel

          why would you need to be in patts if you are young?

          • ilovebangkok

            apparently for free sex, the bg’s don’t charge them!

    • ilovebangkok

      i think they should move all of the businesses currently in WS over to a vacant lot on the darkside. keep the seedy side of pattaya out of the public eye and let WS be turned into family-friendy shops, restaurants & hotels.

      • weasel

        you ARE joking, I hope.

  • soidog

    The vacant barstools in the ‘imagining’ will not inspire confidence in the venal .nor will the prospect of a handful of passers by on an empty street.

  • Cliwe

    Pattaya are full of miserably signs. On every road, on every building, promoting the real estate business. Dear city hall, take a look at Phuket in this matter. Clean!

    • weasel

      Phuket, clean, and boring.

  • gwats1957

    it’s a waste of time and money replacing those signs…… part of the charm of being in Thailand is looking at all these poorly thought out, misspelled, goofy signs…. unless they are in danger of falling off their mounts and killing someone, leave them alone… you have much more serious problems to address…….

    • soidog

      Indeed the signs are quite amusing,one in Buakhao outside a restaurant proudly announces that they sell gruel.

      • gwats1957

        Really? I’ll have to look for that one!!!! LMAO!!!

      • Soon Oliver Twist will be turning up asking for more!

    • Henry Hill (Ray Liotta ) looks like a screaming drag Queen in this pic hahaha

  • gwats1957

    the best improvement? take down every large billboard in the entire country, or push them back 1/2 kilometer away from every major roadway….. they really are an eyesore……. they did this in the USA over 30 years ago……

  • senira

    These idiots on the city council clearly have no idea why Pattaya exists or why it has some of the highest real estate prices in Thailand.

    Keep going idiots. Let’s see how this works out for you. 😀

    • Charles Baht Esquire.

            so when you say “respectful to thai culture” that includes your admitted drunk driving does it? Endangering the thai people that you claim we should all be respectful of but you cannot respect yourself. hypocritical, jealous little coward.

          • Charles Baht Esquire.

            Get used to it then fat slob pom because if it’s facts you fear I have plenty more and video footage too.

          • dublin86

            Limited vocabulary, say the same sh*t every day. Mate, listen to yourself, do you know how ridiculous you sound? You do not even know who I am, stop kidding yourself and change the record. By all means, upload your “footage”, won’t lose any sleep that’s for sure. moron.

          • Charles Baht Esquire.

            So I take it this is getting to you then if do poor pom start learning to get used to it then . I’m sure you’ll be in some of this video footage along with the rest of you poor loser Poms in the beer bars .

          • dublin86

            you are an inferior male Charles, a bottom feeder, we all can see it. you keep spinning your wheels and playing the same boring record, the sun still comes up tomorrow and you are getting rid of nobody thats for certain!!! SO GET USED TO THAT.

          • Charles Baht Esquire.

            You have no choice in the matter and obviously telling the facts about your poor pom on Thailand that loiters beer bars all day and night in the search for cheap charlie beer and underage minors unsing the convenient excuse as retirement . Well Pom ? Get used to it to if it bothers you .

          • dublin86

            retirement? I’m half the retirement age you cretin,

          • Charles Baht Esquire.

            So you keep saying because you are a born old drunkard liar and pedi

          • Gary

            Perhaps a warning is apt at this point. Some of those drunken, fat slob Poms are also tough guys. They may not be amused with your incredibly stupid posts. You are advised to stay well hidden and keep a low profile.

          • Charles Baht Esquire.

            Lol lol lol the tough guys lol lol you fat poor fat loser Poms now I know your busy at the cheap charlie beer bars again starting early swirling down the Chang beers everybody you lazy fat slobs Poms couldn’t fight sh*t . Might be tie for you to check bin and sober up .

          • soidog

            Just block him ..then he is only talking to himself.

          • Gary

            I’d wager that this moron wouldn’t dare to talk to POM bar customers to their faces the same way he talks with his keyboard. Typical keyboard warrior. His vocabulary also appears very limited. He seems to have a major problem with people from the UK. He obviously doesn’t know that I am not fat and happen to be a US citizen.

          • dublin86

            to summarise, he doesn’t know much at all, but that doesn’t stop him making a fool of himself on a daily basis. He wouldn’t say Boo to a Goose in the real world, a complete coward if ever i have saw one. should be embarrassed of himself.

          • Gary

            Why do you suppose guys come to Pattaya? HINT – It’s NOT for the temples and beaches.

            Fat slob? I’m 5’9″ and weigh 176 pounds. I’d be happy to help you get rid of the dopers. Some Thai authorities agree with you but in their own minds, they know what would happen and are not anxious to see Pattaya die.

            If you are determined to stay in Thailand, I’m sure you could find somewhere that suits you. Pattaya is not likely to change to suit your standards.

          • dublin86

            everyone is a fat slob in Charles’ world, it is the only way he can feel happy with himself is to deflect his own insecurities on to others.

          • Charles Baht Esquire.

            just read the newspapers in Thailand everyday and you’ll fine out that’s no deflection simply nothing more then facts and the truth about the English but i understand your pom loyalty towards your fellow drunkard and drug snorting ice pipe smoking pedo pom

          • Charles Baht Esquire.

            look ya fat slob drunkard pom in size denial all you Poms are grubby drunkard fat slob c unts and you lawless , disrespectful , drug addicts are worst farang offenders there.

        • dublin86

          No other country would have him Gary. Somewhere in the world a village has happily lost its idiot.

      • MOMMA CREAMPIED

        Charles can you send me some more ice and yabba I ran out how much you got left in your room

        • Charles Baht Esquire.

          you’ve had enough up your nose for one night f uck off and go sit in the gutter with your other loser welfare leeching buddy junkies

  • Sly

    Its a universal law that as soon as a public official gets involved in anything stupidity will follow.
