Pattaya’s Hollywood Club closes again as it awaits foreign tourists | The Thaiger

After Covid-19 forced Patttaya’s ‘The Hollywood Club’ to close and reopen, the establishment is now once again closed and reportedly awaiting a green light allowing foreign tourists to return. Damrongkiat Pinitkan, the club’s owner, says, “Our major customers are foreign tourists. We still did not open the club zone when the last phase of removing Covid-19 lockdown restrictions allowed us to open.”

“However, we did open our restaurant and karaoke zones which have many regular Thai customers.”

He says that the staff requested for The Hollywood Club zone to reopen as well several weeks ago as it was initially thought to bring in Thai customers. However, upon evaluating the club’s performance after reopening, it was decided to close yet again due to an insufficient number of customers.

“We will re-open when international flights return to Thailand with foreign tourists.”

“During this difficult time for our loyal staff, we will open a small market in the parking area in front of Hollywood Pattaya for them to sell food in the late afternoon which will start next week.”

Pinitkan says karaoke and restaurant areas will continue to operate despite the closing of other zones within the club.

    It’s a real shame that Thailand and other ASEAN countries have chosen these draconian rules in shutting tourism money off. The far greater risk to the population who rely on tourism revenue for their income and livelihoods will be far more wide reaching and detrimental than Covid ever was.

    Farangs no longer welcome. Tourist areas are now ghost towns. Property prices will fall further. Thai Baht strength vs European currencies has made Thailand a poor value for money destination but will collapse as banks go under. I’ve no interest in doing quarantine as wouldn’t want to stay more than 3 weeks. As for retirement why would I want to put 3M Baht into a Thai bank account given current fragile conditions?

      Where on earth did you get this mystical figure of B3m for retirement….the actual figure is B800,000 and even this amount does not have to stay permanently in your account

Pattaya residents made a grisly find today at the Nongprue Municipality tip this morning. Whilst digging for items they could recycle and sell, they discovered the dead body of a baby. Police are now launching an investigation for the individual responsible. Nongprue Police were notified of the discovery of the corpse of the newborn baby at the garbage dump at the Nongprue Municipality tip this morning.

Emergency responders arrived at the municipal garbage dump to find the body of the baby inside a black plastic bag amongst all the other garbage. 38 year old Sirithon Tapjeen, who made the horrifying discovery, told The Pattaya News that she and some associates were searching for plastic bottles to sell for recycling.

She says she “smelled something rotten before realising that it was a dead newborn baby”.

Police are now trying to find the infant’s mother and anyone associated with the dumping of the body at the site.

32 year old recovers in hospital after tiger attack in Pattaya

32 year old recovers in hospital after tiger attack in Pattaya | The Thaiger

A 32 year old man is lucky to be alive after being attacked by a tiger yesterday whilst feeding it at the Elephant Kingdom park in Pattaya. Only quick action from park staff prevented the man from being mauled and killed by the animal. Emergency responders were called to the scene at around 3.30pm at the Elephant Kingdom in Huay Yai, Banglamung.

The injured man, named as Thitiphong Makkarom, suffered injuries to his legs, arms side of his face. He was rushed to hospital. Friends and fellow workers say that Thitiphong was feeding 3 tigers inside a cage as normal. The park has been closed due to the lack of tourists. They told reporters that Thitiphong had never had problems with these tigers before.

But one of the tigers “jumped” at the worker and started attacking him, apparently unprovoked. Nearby staff saw what was happening and rushed to help pull him away from the attacking tiger. Their quick action probably saved him from being killed.

The Elephant Kingdom Park has been closed since the start of the outbreak of the coronavirus in Thailand back in March. But staff have remained employed to continue feeding and taking care of the animals. The incident is now being investigated and police say they will interview Thitiphong when he is able to speak to them.
