Homeless sleep on beach


A homeless man sleeping off a bender in Pattaya drew almost no notice from passersby.

The man, who appeared to be in his 30s, was sleeping on the beach April 30 – hardly an uncommon sight in Pattaya. Even city hall regulatory officers walked by without rousting him.

One foreigner who tried to wake up the vagrant gave up and called the press.

This is hardly a picture postcard promoting Pattaya Beach as a welcoming tourist destination.
