Tourist police returns to Walking Street in Pattaya


Must read

Officers and volunteers of the tourist police in Pattaya have once again begun patrolling the famous Walking Street at night

After Pattaya’s Walking Street pedestrian street was closed to traffic from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m., officers and volunteer members of the city’s tourist police have resumed raids to ensure the safety of tourists. The popular street is gradually “coming back to life”, and some bars and entertainment venues have reopened, with more and more foreign visitors coming to vacation in Thailand.

Tourism Police Inspector Lt. Col. Pitchaya Kupleng said officers are stationed at both ends of Walking Street to assist tourists. The unit has both foot and bicycle patrols to prevent crimes such as pickpocketing and harassment of tourists.

The Tourist Police disappeared from Walking Street in 2020 and did not carry out its tasks until the last day, although many bars on the famous street reopened a few months ago. Now that cars and motorized vehicles cannot enter the pedestrian street from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m., officers have resumed their traditional posts.

Tourists in need of assistance in Pattaya can call 1155 or use the Tourist Police’s mobile app.
