Halted beach refill work zone becomes haven for thieves

PATTAYA:-- A blocked-off portion of Pattaya Beach has become a haven for homeless people and a base for petty thieves, beach chair vendors claim.

 

Umbrella renters told reporters May 9 that since a sheet-metal fence was erected on the sand near the Dusit Thani Hotel, homeless people have started living there and thieves who steal swimmers’ belongings use it as refuge. The vendors want the fence torn down.

 

The barricade was erected to fence off an area where a contractor had begun to refill and expand Pattaya Beach. However, the project was halted in December due to a lack of appropriate sand with no estimate on when the crucial erosion-mitigation project will resume.

 

Vendor Rampey Eaksamai, 65, said the squatters wait until beachgoers enter the water, then steal property left on the sand and quickly return to their hideout. The entire area has become unsafe, she complained.

Ruined. I first went there in 1998( already 20 years too late). . Now I would not visit Patts for any reason. If I wanted to get drunk or take a prostitute (don't) no need to travel, and deal with violent taxi drivers and scams. Pattaya really could be something if major changes are undertaken.

I am afraid of getting hit on the head by a falling coconut; get rid of those coconut trees where people walk.

There is plenty of sand just 200 meters from the beach,all you need is a dredge and a pump. The whole idea of trucking in the sand is just crazy.....

Why do these projects never get completed, the same can be said about the other end of the Beach (Bali Hai) and there is a mess round the sewerage pumping station that has been going on for years with no apparent progress. I know I am wasting my time complaining but it is just project (pedestrian crossings) after project (bus stops and busses) after project (re-routing songtaews). Yet the 'for no apparent benefit except producing an area for vendors project' of widening Beach Rd did get completed.
