Roaches join rats, sewage on list of Pattaya Beach blemishes

Roaches join rats, sewage on list of Pattaya Beach blemishes

image.png

PATTAYA:--The rats endemic on Pattaya Beach have new neighbors: cockroaches.

 

Kanrapa Mukdasanit of the Disease Control Department on June 13 blamed tourists and locals for the insect scourge by improperly disposing of their food, trash and other waste.

 

However, the cockroaches are nesting and swarming around putrid beach outflow pipes through which raw sewage has repeatedly spilled over the past year, clearly showing that Pattaya City Hall, not beach-goers, shoulders most of the blame.

 

Pattaya has battled in recent years against both an epidemic of rats and frequent sewage spills, both of which have spoiled the sand and sea and only amplified Pattaya’s long-running reputation for having a filthy beach.

 

The roaches are doing nothing to dispel that image. City officials, however, seem content to blame tourists for dropping food and litter.

 

The Health Department said it plans to spread pesticide around the beach to bring the roach infestation under control.

The council could try to clean up the trash, that would reduce the issues with roaches and rats.

Roaches and rats must have the same rights as soi dogs. They're all buddhas creatures, na.

I avoid the beaches in Pattaya and Jomtien as they are so very dirty and unhealthy to walk on: just walk on a landfills and you have the same feeling!

 

So Pattaya is far from a beach resort or family resort as you have to be very concerned about the health of your family!!!!!!!!!!!

guess the pattaya municipal has no money to build a decent waste water treatment facility to let the sewer /toiletwater through upon release to the beach

Money talks loudest. Tourists should just stay away until all these problems are properly dealt with. I always tell people to go elsewhere. Life is more than Ripleys and scary Ladyboys.

In a meeting I attended  with the Mayor - he explained that even though Pattaya generates a huge revenue - the money goes to the central government - and very little is then returned to the city. 

I can sort of believe this - he seemed genuine enough.

Why is that a hard concept to grasp? When you invite tourist to an area there will need to be some effort made to keep the area in presentable condition as it is when any number of humans gather. Its a cost of doing business. And if you want to keep doing business you need to provide some effort to keep your offering in good shape. Of course if you put down enough pesticide all the creepy crawlers will be gone, not the trash, but the insects will be gone until it all washes into the sea. Which will be right after you have poisoned (to some degree) those who go to the beach, especially the youngsters that tend to put everything in their mouths. 

 

In the end it would seem Pattaya has so many contributing factors to this issue it is going to take more effort than what the current city fathers are willing to expend. So those who come will take back a less than flattering image of Thailand that will circulate and undermine any effort to increase tourism after some years pass.
