Nearly half a billion baht spent on sand - but Pattaya beach is a filthy mess!

Local media in Pattaya reported on the state of the beach in Pattaya saying that hundreds of millions of baht has been spent on new sand - but the area remains as dirty as ever. 

 

What should be a stunning natural attraction for tourists is a continuing disgrace. 

 

Pattaya News said that the authorities are forking out a budget of 429 million baht (around a million pounds sterling) to restore and widen the beach.

 

But no one is clearing up the litter. 

 

They published pictures of tourists coming ashore amid all manner of debris. 

 

They added that the refurbishing of the beach - due to finish at the end of the year - was now 80% complete.

I met several Marine Biologists here a few years ago.  In conversation they said they found three three "things" in the water that were never seen before.  I don't recall what kind of Parasites, bacteria or amoebas or what they found but they said they appeared to be dangerous pathogens, that were yet Uncategorized.

 

In addition I saw in California over 30 years attempts to salvage the beaches by bringing in tons of sand. With the first big storm or in due course of time the beaches were back to their previous eroded states or worse. The only way to possibly save The beaches is to also build a series of jetties and then attempt to replenish the sand.

 

It's a shame you can't go on the water here. Eye, I hear it more and more rashes, eye, ear nose throat infections and other weird problems after just going in for a bit. If the water was clean here this place would be packed your round.

You really have to be a special kind of person to live in that place. Floods, traffic jams, the worst kind of tourists, polluted everything, and it doesn't matter how far away from walking street you are, the sex dynamic is ever apparent. 🤮

Well my diet is 80% fruit.  20% " one other thing."  Why else put up with all the other crap that fills this toilet.

Well you get all that in Bangkok too, but the dynamic as you call it is not really visible where I live out of town. We got a Terminal 21 now!
