Powder-caked cars equal post-Songkran boom for car washes


With many vehicles streaked or caked in powder after Songkran, business was brisk the day after at many Pattaya-area car washes.

Both motorcycles and cars were lined up for a wash and shine at Pattaya Car Care on Soi Photisan in Naklua April 21. Staffers sorted the vehicles by type and got down to business with sponges, towels and vacuums.

Area car washes reported a steady stream of customers from 7:30 a.m. into the evening.

Business was brisk at local car washes once Songkran was finally over.
