That is what i mean about Pattaya, compared to my early visits the quality is defiantly lower. Some bar owners blame the lack of good looking girls available. Which is not a bad thing if it means that girls are moving away from the bar scene. But I suspect the lookers are either in the high end ago go's or working through dating sites.
That is not to say that there are no pretty ladies, some bars and Gent's Clubs seem to do better. But the days of seeing gorgeous ladies at every bar do seem to be over. And that comes from an old fart who is far less fussy than he was 15 years ago 555
Having said all that I still had some good evenings, I just had to fin places with the right sort of vibe. The music abr for instance, the band was good and the lady who sat with me was good company if not the most beautiful woman around. But I did not bother to go back.
