Pattaya Beach became the area’s largest seafood restaurant when the Amazing Seafood Festival opened.
Chonburi Gov. Pakarathorn Thienchai kicked off the May 10-12 expo on Beach Road.
Thousands of tourists and locals munched and shopped at eating areas and booths spanning the shoreline from Soi 2 to the Hard Rock Hotel.
Seafood restaurants and vendors were open from 6 p.m.-midnight, with professional chefs cooking up meals at a North Pattaya Beach dining area that seated 2,000 people each of the three nights. The five-course dinner required advance reservations.
Each night also had entertainment from leading singers including Ice Saranyu, Ao Seksan, Moo Musu, Stamp, Lula, Yes Sir Day, Kai Muk Rungrat, and Singto Numchok. There also was a chance to meet celebrity chefs.
