Labor Day was anything but work for tourists who flocked to Pattaya’s beaches for the second of the three-day weekend.

Traffic streaming to and from Highway 7 was heavy on Sukhumvit Road, as were the north, central and southern arteries into downtown.

In Jomtien Beach, Beach Road and its parking places filled up early as groups sat and ate on beach mats or escaped the sun under umbrellas. They were attended to by a hive of busy vendors, hawkers and masseuses.

Domestic tourism to Pattaya was at its peak during the extended Labor Day weekend holidays.

Vehicular traffic into Pattaya was extremely busy as holiday makers travelled by public and private transport to the beaches along the east coast of Thailand.
