The streets of Thailand’s Pattaya have become well known as a place for older gentlemen to go and make complete fools of themselves on occasion.
The idyllic resort city on the east coast of the Gulf of Thailand is home to over one million people and has a booming tourism industry.
One particular part of the city’s popular nightlife is its sex industry, which plays host to hundreds of massage parlours, saunas, gogo bars, host bars and hourly hotels that are all set up to service foreign tourists. Publications such as the Sun and the Daily Mirror came under fire from the Thai government after describing Pattaya as “ a modern-day Sodom and Gomorrah” and “the world’s sex capital”.
“There is no such thing as prostitution in Pattaya,” said Colonel Apicha in an interview with the Bangkok Post i. “Where did they get the figure of 27,000 sex workers in Pattaya? Anyone can make up this information…Thai ladies having sex with foreigners is their personal issue. If they like each other, I don’t see anything wrong with what they do behind closed doors.”
The extremely well known “Walking Street” in the entertainment district of Pattaya draws foreigners and Thai nationals alike with its vibrant array of venues.
Unfortunately for some, this can mean that there’s a fair amount of drunk and disorderly people roaming around the neon-lit street, and sometimes this can be like a spark to a powder keg. One such example sees an older man in his standard issue singlet, board shorts and flip-flops starting a fight with a young Thai woman, who he has been attempting to grope.
The Thai woman rejects the man’s advances and lets loose with a right hand to the jaw before landing a turning side kick to the man’s stomach that drops him to the pavement. He sits there for a moment before the woman advances, enraged at the man’s audacity
She continues to attack him before he punches her back to the ground. Soon he is surrounded, with two other girls stepping in to kick the man for assaulting the girl.
The man yells in pain and acts as if the woman he attacked was the initial aggressor as onlookers attempt to keep the man separate from the woman. Wild times on Walking Street, hey?
