CHON BURI: Holidaymakers flocked to Koh Lan, offshore from Pattaya beach, on Friday - the first day of the four-day government weekend. Rooms were booked out.
Thousands of visitors arrived in Pattaya, in Bang Lamung district of this eastern province. Koh Lan was a prime destination. Tourists packed ferries to the popular island just 8 kilometres offshore.
All accomodation on the island was filled.
Hotel operator Kanchananop Sukkhee said all hotels and resorts reported 100% occupancy. Visitors who could not find rooms enjoyed their time shopping, eating and swimming - and were then forced to return to the mainland.
There were 2,000 rooms on the island, and more than 10,000 visitors, he said.
