It seems that more and more small businesses are feeling the effects of Covid-19, packing up and leaving Pattaya in the hope of better business elsewhere.
One business owner this week shared her story across social media saying that she has had fifteen profitable years in Pattaya, however it is now time to leave as it is impossible to find customers.
As you can guess, she is not alone in this situation and more and more people are leaving to go back home.
The lady told media that in 15 years, Pattaya has given her fond momories, money, car and a house, however she did not let on what line of business she was in.
Now, however, with the foreigners gone and the city deserted she has decided to pack up and move to a different province.
‘Leaving Pattaya was my last option,’ she wrote. ‘I will always be grateful that it has given me a home and a car and enough money to take care of my family. I really don’t want to leave but it is impossible to stay here. The economy is so bad! I feel like I will cry just typing about it. Brothers and sisters who are continuing the fight, know that I wish you good luck and keep fighting. Byebye Pattaya”.
With that she jumped into the van and was gone. Never to return -perhaps?
