Why is Dong Tan Beach Being Destroyed?

Recommended Posts

Oh look! yet another beach improvement that places a road full of cars between property, pedestrians and the sea.

 

Next time anyone is taking pictures of the big sign, can they take a moment to put aside the righteous indignation, wipe away the tears and see how far this road is going? To Pattaya Park? Or all the way to Pratumnak 6? Or just as far as that huge tract of undeveloped land slap bang in the middle?

This phase of construction is going as far the White House, then the funding runs out. The road will be widened by about a meter.

Damn. I'd hoped they would somehow overlook at least that section, the only peaceful, shaded area on the whole stretch. But if there are a few baht to be made, well, we know what happens. I wish there were a hell for those responsible to go to...

It's quite tragic to see the wanton destruction of the decades old trees,
obviously someone totally hates them even though they where very popular with us "cheap Charlies"
who brought our own chairs mats and umbrellas :(
