Pattaya has contracted with Alipay Business Group to lure Chinese tourists back to Pattaya.

Mayor Sonthaya Kunplome welcomed Alipay executives and Pramote Chaiulan, vice president of Smart City to evaluate tourist attractions of interest to Chinese visitors.

The first event on the calendar will be the city’s Songkran celebration in April.

The number of Chinese tourists has plummeted since a July boat sinking that killed 54 mainlanders. Pattaya’s numbers were down 20 percent last year. (PCPR)
