Famous faces in Pattaya

The bustling seaside town of Pattaya is not just about bars and beaches this week. Today the some of the most powerful men in the world have jetted into town.

United States President Barack Obama is with Russan Prime Minister Vladimir Putin in the popular resort, with NBA basketball player Yao Ming and Thai tennis legend Paradorn Srichaphan making up a neat foursome.

But if I let slip that Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie plus Posh and Becks are also gracing the white sand at the same time, you may begin to smell a rat. Yes, this is a feisty gaggle of 68 life-size figures as part of Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks.

Situated in Royal Garden Plaza, the famous figures are the latest exhibit at Ripley’s Believe It or Not museum, run by Pattaya’s Minor International Company. This 100 million baht project is Texas-based Louis Tussaud’s fifth display, alongside others in Canada, India and the UK. Organisers hope to attract one million guests through its gates every year.

Only time will tell if Pattaya’s new guests can avoid melting under the blistering Thai heat.
