City hall pledges cleanup of Walking Street touts, vendors

Pattaya City Hall is taking another stab at cleaning up Walking Street amid rampant complaints about touts, pick-pockets, ladyboys, flower sellers and other riff-raff.

At a March 30 meeting with Walking Street’s board of directors, Deputy Mayor Ronakit Ekasingh said a proposal awaiting approval would have Pattaya police, tourist police and municipal enforcement officers jointly ticket and arrest on sight pornographic DVD sellers, sex-show touts, beggars, flower sellers and other street vendors from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m.

 

Barriers will also be erected on side streets to prevent cars from entering the zone during evening hours and officers were assigned to inspect signage so it’s in compliance with height regulations.

Ronakit said the Public Health and Environment Office would take over responsibility for garbage collection and city hall has set aside funds for more officers to secure the street from 3-8 a.m.

Walking Street community head Sunthorn Kangsirikul agreed many of the street vendors and beggars are nuisances to tourists. He also requested more help in corralling the many transvestites and motorcycle taxi drivers congregating on the 850-meter promenade who also draw copious numbers of complaints from visitors.

Some of the street entertainers will be allowed to stay, however. The deputy mayor said a dozen artists will be allowed to perform behind the Siam Bayshore hotel, including magicians, kids with footballs and people painted up as robots.

Tourist Police commander Col. Arun Phrompan said six CCTV cameras have been installed on Walking Street to help patrol officers.

Why do they always say there have been "rampant complaints". I really cant imagine numerous people flooding city hall to complain about flower sellers in Walking St.

Patts can not lose atmosphere. Nobody want pickpocket, but street salesman of flowers do not mind me personally.It is other endeavour make Patts better and something what Patts is not!

knowing thailand, it was probably the guys selling glow sticks complaining about the flower sellers, the flower sellers complaining about the kids selling gum, the food vendors complaining about each other, and on down the line.

 

But seriously, we give the authorities a lot of stick (they deserve most of it) but once in awhile they DO improve the place. For example, you used to get shit on by birds in the big tree near FLB but they pruned the tree and sorted it out; there used to be a lot of people with endangered animals roaming the streets and for the most part that's been stamped out. Same with the Cambodian pickpockets that were a problem 6 months ago. They have their moments is all I'm saying. With any luck they might claim it's going to be a huge improvement and we might get a tiny improvement or two out of it.
