In Patong, which once saw almost no-one but single men,
the streets are now packed with groups of Asians on guided tours,
families and 'Derby and Joan' oldies,
very few of which spend any money in the bars.
They just walk around gawping at the ladyboys and glaring at any farang male who sits, talks or walks with Thai girls.
Could this be the future of Pattaya?
