Pattaya hotels 80%+ full this weekend

Pattaya hotels ran at over 80% capacity during the five-day holiday which included the holy days of Buddhist Lent and the 2-day Pattaya Marathon.

Pattaya hotels are running more than 80% full for the five-day holiday.

Flipper Hotels Group head Sinchai Wattanasartsathorn said July 15 that the addition of an extra holiday between two Buddhist days and the weekend gave a big boost the local economy, as Bangkokians fled the city for a long weekend.

Of the relatively few foreign tourists, Indians remain the top group, followed by western Europeans, he said.

Local tourists from all over the country came to Pattaya for some rest and recreation on Pattaya’s beaches during the long holiday week.
