Pattaya laid down the law for more than 200 vendors at the Naklua Eat & Walk market, who also learned the basics of emergency response two days before the “walking street” opened Jan. 5.
Tourism Promotion Director Ornwara Korapin explained the rules and regulations to the vendors Jan. 3. The sellers subsequently attended an emergency-response training session.
The tenth iteration of the market runs weekends through Feb. 24 from 3:30-10 p.m. Traffic is closed from the Naklua police booth to the long bridge from 3-10:30 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays.
The 207 vendors are allowed to set up a half-hour before the event and must clean their booths and sales area by 10 p.m. They can only park at the Sawang Boriboon Thammasathan Foundation while the public can park in numerous places.
At the training, the vendors were shown how to use fire extinguishers, perform basic first aid and CPR and how to respond in cases of emergency.
