CHON BURI: Pattaya City buzzed with tourists on Saturday as thousands flocked to Koh Lan, a popular tourist destination in this resort town, during the three-day holiday period that began on Friday.

At Bali Hai pier in South Pattaya, both Thais and foreign tourists, arrived in groups to spend their holidays on Koh Lan, a tiny island accessible by a 30-minute ferry ride.

Around 5,000-7,000 holidaymakers boarded ferries to the island from Friday to Saturday morning. The Pattaya City Municipality and related agencies sent officials to facilitate visitors boarding the ferries.   

Body temperature checks and face masks were required. Those boarding ferries or speedboats also had to wear life jackets.

At Jomthien and other beaches, the atmosphere was also lively as many holidaymakers spent time there with families.
