A group of foreign tourists looks confused as to why Pattaya Soi 6 was completely quiet.

There aren’t many tourists left in Pattaya, but at least a few arrived in town without knowing all the bars were closed.

Five men looking for some afternoon action on Pattaya’s infamous Soi 6 on Jan. 8 were disappointed to find none of the bars-cum-brothels were open.



One of the men, a Briton who provided only his last name, Anderson, said he had not heard the government had ordered bars closed two weeks ago.

Staring at the desolate street, Anderson said he hoped Pattaya would quickly return to normal.

This is the type of scene they had hoped to see after spending two weeks in ASQ quarantine.
