Recently, tourists visiting Pattaya Beach and Na Jomtien Beach in Thailand have voiced their concerns and filed complaints regarding incidents of harassment and violence. The beach areas, known for their scenic beauty and popular among tourists, have experienced a rise in troubling encounters over the past 2-3 weeks.
Upon investigation, reporters observed groups of tourists gathering to enjoy nature, sitting, drinking, and eating. However, their peaceful experiences have been disrupted by encounters with teenagers, some of whom were reportedly under the age of 20. Incidents of harassment, quarrels, and even fatalities have been reported.
During the holidays, it was observed that tourists would gather in large groups, consuming alcohol after the entertainment venues closed. At the same time, groups of teenagers, some dressed in school uniforms, would also congregate in the area. Tourists mentioned that they would encounter turbulence and violent altercations when the teenagers arrived, causing them to feel unsafe.
In light of these incidents, tourists are urging the police and relevant authorities to enhance security measures and conduct strict inspections to ensure the safety of those traveling to Pattaya.
