Thais online have responded in large numbers to proposals to create a thriving market area at the Balihai development in South Pattaya.
Following a request for investors many Thais went on Facebook to say they were interested in setting up stalls and restaurants in the shadow of the famous Pattaya sign.
The market will be part of the marina set to open in November.
The area promises to have restaurants, souvenir shops, snack food stalls, bars selling alcohol, fashion items and handmade products.
