I just got back from a short trip to Pattaya and yesterday discovered some new restrictions put upon the vendors. The army was out again with tape measures and wooden stakes cutting down the area where the vendors can place chairs and umbrellas. It's quite small now with the area so restricted that they can't put more than 4 rows of chairs and not more than 8 chairs across and that's a bit crowded. Some just went with 3 rows and 6 across and that's a little more comfortable.
One of the vendors said there's a real temptation due to the limited space to eliminate all of the side tables and line up the chairs side to side.
There's not much of a problem now in low season but come high season getting a vacant chair at the beach will be a problem.
One can only wait with bated breath on what's the next lamebrained decision coming down the road.
