If last night is anything to go by then maybe Pattaya's extended Songkran is a turn off rather than a turn on for tourists and Bangkokians alike. I know more than a few residents leave town for the week so I guess they're voting with their feet! If Pattaya hotels are also quiet then maybe it's time for City Hall to review it's policy of holding a week long Songkran. I can only hope.
For the record, I enjoy Songkran but 1 or 2 days is enough for me. I don't need to get wet every time I go out for a week. How people going to work in Pattaya during Songkran Week get on I just don't know.
Of course, what mongers were out last night had their pick of the field. There's always an upside to life in Pattaya!!
