The Brits invade Pattaya...



Pattaya is not only getting overrun by colonies of rats, it has also become a magnet for another kind of pest, commonly known in the UK as lager louts.


Gangs of poorly educated, low socio economic class young men, especially from the UK, are now pouring into Thailand, and heading to Pattaya with the sole purpose of causing trouble whilst on holiday in what they perceive as Sin City, the Blackpool of the East.

We are seeing the kind of young Europeans who normally goes for a drinking binge holiday in Spain now coming here bringing with them their aggressive, noisy and troublesome attitude. As a result, many people, especially families, stopped going to Spain and southern Europe because of these hooligans terrorizing everyone in their drunken crazed condition. However, things have now changed and prices have soared in these areas. Lower prices on airfares and of course the attractive price level of everything else here in Pattaya is now attracting these youngsters to come here and threatening to destroy whatever good reputation that is left with the Thais of foreigners.

Hooligan Brits

My DW and I will be going to Greece in September for vacation. I have tried to avoid the Brit-heavy vacation spots (Like Malia in Crete). Most British travelers that we've met in Europe and elsewhere have been good blokes. This hooligan crowd is a very sad development.

In the Algarve area of Portugal, and in the resort town of Caiscais, we saw a little of this type of traveler. Hey, on the plus side, Americans are really considered to be quite polite visitors, and good tippers!

Put a few of them in prison for a year or two, or give them a caning. I suspect it would stop quickly.

It's only my opinion, but a significant majority of the Brits that I meet here are quite vocal about (their perception) of the poor quality of life in the UK. They complain about high prices, immigrants, weather... you name it.

FWIW, only a small portion of the UK population are "Lagger Louts" and most Brits condem the rowdy behavior.

If Brits aren't your thing, another good spot to avoid is Tenerife in the Canary Islands, off of the Southern tip of Spain.

The deadly combo seems to be "cheap flights to a place with cheap drinks".

Rules out most of Southern Europe, shame that they've now extended into Asia.

Lance, what are you doing in Soi 8 anyway. Much nicer in Baan Chang on a weekday in low season after a lovely 18 at Green Valley
