tourism in 2009.
Pattaya City plans many promotional campaigns next year aimed at domestic
tourists, funded by a six-million baht budget approved by the city council, and

12 Months of Dining Out
At this time of year we sit down and look at the
restaurant reviews we have done. This past year (2008) we reviewed 19 new
venues, which is almost a record. From the 19 new places to eat, there were
three that were outstanding, and in our opinion will be able to hold their own
amongst the established restaurants in Pattaya. These were the Minus 5 degrees
supper club, the Café des Amis and the Grappa.
