A contingent of 20+ officials, police, soldiers and tourist police have done a walk-thru inspection of Pattaya’s red light district, Walking Street. They were glad to report that there was no prostitution being conducted in the area.

Pattaya Update News reports that the taskforce joined with Department of Provincial Administration to inspect the infamous area for any evidence of sex-for-sale or underage sex workers.

Pol Col Pongphan Wongmaneethet, the deputy Chonburi police chief told media that if tourists or the public see any evidence of prostitution they can call 191. He also advised tourists that there was a Tourist Police office at the end of the street where officers can be informed directly.

The taskforce strode down the street inspecting many properties and collecting photographic evidence.

According to the unannounced visit by local officials, Pattaya’s reputation as a World Class Family Destination is still intact.
