    how was he planning to stay 3 more weeks with 230 euro, ? cheap charlie or very wise man …………

    • P.G.

      and 2000 baht.

      • Enough is enough

        perhaps it was 2000 Dollars ^^

  • Sibley1

    WTF???…So he had about 12.000 baht to last him 3 weeks?…Just go home mate.

    • khun Thai

      it’s up to him how much he plans to spend on his holidays

    • John Knights

      Think I spend that in a day…

  • Ken Willoughby

    All I can say is bigger fool him to carry so much. No matter what happened in whatever way, it’s stupid do do where ever in the world you are. Anyway, was most likely to be far less than he said, oh, unless he really is STUPID.

  • ME

    A total of 15,000 baht makes for a pretty lean 23+ days of vacation in Pattaya. With such meager resources maybe returning home is best. As for the “lady boys”…pure scum behaving like a pack of wild animals.

  • NoNonsenseStyle

    2 things typify Pattaya ie: jet ski scams & violent ladyboys preying on farang.

    Both these happen year after year a few short meters from the main Pattaya Police station on Beach Road – in plain sight of law enforcement. Despite the almost monthly headline grabbing photo ops by Pattaya police about “clean ups” these two problems remain unchecked year after year.

    In other countries police go about their job without announcing monthly campaigns & seeking photo ops. Doing a clean up is simply considered as “doing ones job” well. In Thailand police seek lots of headlines & photo ops simply for “making meaningless announcements” – rarely, if ever, much is done to eradicate repeat problems or prevent crime. shame.

    This story isn’t about how much he did/didn’t have, or how he chooses to budget, it’s about the ongoing crimes committed by Ladyboys along Beach Rd…only yesterday, were the police patting themselves on the back, telling everyone what a great job they are doing and the thousands of arrests they had made (seems like it has had little impact)

    How hard can it be to Police this, like most of the Prostitutes on Beach Rd, they all stay in the same place every night, they all have their own little territories.

    Beach Rd and Walking Street are the two most recognised tourist spots in Pattaya, yet they seem to be the least policed….(unless it’s right in front of the Police Station, and then it’s only petty traffic violations that bring in millions of baht each year)

  • Maverick

    I guess that’s one way to make a Maltese cross …..

    • Jock

      Stupid comment…

      • Maverick

        At least it’s a comment relating to the story … unlike your stupid troll comment!

    • John Knights

      Thought that was quite good, but then I like daft jokes..

  • Pete

    I understand with a small south European pension, the guy has not more to spend. But is that a crime? Do have respect for this gentleman, he still pays for his accomodation and food.

    • trevor1976

      pete when you holiday in pattaya you need a little bit more than you can spend in case of emergency,meet a few extra ladies etc.always always always don t come on a strict budget.keep saving that bit longer until you have enough.i speak from experience

  • Robert

    So how are they any different than most other Thai males?

    • ME

      I don’t paint Thais or anyone else with the same brush.

  • Panda Aust

    Walking on Pattaya beach early morning ….not again !!!

    • 1FALANG

      I got jumped by lady boys like a duffas and very body laughed at me even the onlookers .I am basically a dickhead who asked for it .My wife looks like a lady boy to but has yet to jump me.

  • Phoenix

    Com’n boys,it is not true. He is smart and just looking if somebody give back the money he lost.
    But I am smart too,and will give nothing to him…..hehehe.Next time we will stay in hotel room and
    watch Tv porno-movie.

    • aussie jeff

      dumb comment

  • khun Thai

    LB were fined 100 thb last night so they need to make more money today!

  • Deadhorse

    Entirely the fault of the police.
    Ladyboys had to steal to pay the fine they had to to pay to pay for previous crime(s) that they commited previously……….something like that.

  • soidog

    Maybe he is a first timer that believed the Land Of Smiles and Paradise lies.If the ladyboy
    is caught he can just peel off a 100 to pay the fine.

  • Francesco Scecherafaroscechera

    Police in pattaya should do his job without advertising, tourists come to relax and have fun, but pattaya for a few years is becoming a tourist city violent against tourists.

    From time immemorial the tourists do not touch, tourists are a resource for tourism.

    • Phoenix

      Si,dal tempo di Marco Cacco ( = yes,from the Marco Cacco’s time ).Instead ,from when I came
      here ,1995, tourists always got troubles with a part of locals,the bad part,resource or not resource.

  • Dill Pickles

    If the ladyboy crime in a mo. in Pattaya happened in all the U.S. they’d be extinct in a wk. nation wide. Pattaya city govt. & police will never feel the pain, but business owners will when tourist let criminals have the beach all to themselves after dark. In the other publication another tourist was drugged by one. I would bet if you hurt one defending yourself you’d be charged with assault. The scum of the earth is the most protected 2 legged creatures in Pattaya.

  • cliwe

    Just take the away!
    Difficult or?

  • Honda Wave

    I won’t walk down certain soi’s because they are such a nuisance. They get way to close and try to grab at you. I say no thanks in thai to them multiple times and they just don’t seem to get it. I don’t care who they are man or woman they are too close and need to back off. If your that close I think you are trying pick my pocket and want you away from me. They really are a downside to Pattaya.

  • garyc

    the ladyboys should all be exterminated, but 300 euros to finish the holidays on 17th october is really living lightly.. It’s not even holidays at this stage..

  • Jim Soi Excite Cooper

    Well old guy, If you hang around ladyboys in the early hours of the morning on Beach Rd the chances are you’re going to get robbed

  • mikeyj

    Its not a lot of money,i come to pattaya and budget on 3000 aus for 10 days (not including hotel) and stay soi LK Metro no problem up there,never been to walking street and would never be on beach road late

  • andy

    First holiday, first day I was robbed by beach road ladyboy 20 000 Baht. I toke it as a lesson, for which I’m grateful. I’m still coming here for holiday, why not?

    12000 Baht for 3 weeks = 570 Baht per day. If he’s not drinking and not going with girls I can imagine that. Otherwise…..?????

  • John Knights

    300 Euros to last 3 weeks. Spend more living at home. And that’s normal bills and food costs.

  • John Knights

    I don’t believe this story at all. So he’s down to his last 300 euros and takes the whole lot out with him that night. More like the dirty old bugger has spent it all and is looking for a bit sympathy and a borrow to get back home, or hopes the hotel or condo owner takes pity on him. Nice try grandad..

  • Victor

    Personally I almost never spend more than 500 baht a day in Pattaya (not including my room) but then again I only drink one or at most 2 beers a night and if I take a lady from the street, never pay more than 200, 250 baht tops for short time and make it clear I only want 15 minutes, so I find many of the street ladies are willing to accept that seeing as I always treat them well and talk very nice to them, treat them as friends. In 3 months I never spent more than 700 in a day.
