Not again - Pattaya "Environmental Disaster Zone II"

Not just Pattaya. The whole of south east Asia is the same. No such thing as a nice beach any more. The ocean is a dumping ground, the worlds biggest toilet and the beaches are where it all collects especially when it rains. 

Until we can change people's attitude about how we dispose of waste then we'll be pushing shit uphill with this problem. Good luck and get used to it. 

Agreed.

 

That's one of the precious few things about the USA I still like. DO NOT LITTER!

A couple of off topic posts trying to hijack the topic have been removed, we are not talking about Holland or Patong.

Anyone who is swimming at a Pattaya beach must be totally in sane!  Let us have the numbers for E-coli.

Well, who cares - after all the official proclamation reads that "Pattaya is visited for its nature" - go figure ;-)

Sometimes it's not about the money it is mainly about government taking action and providing a clean environment for the tourists that do go there. What do they think people want to go there and swim in Poo!! 

All those big high-rises and all the hotels on the beachfront should be made to contribute, and the government should come up with a better solution for the area period.

Now it looks like they will have to come back to continue to do what many in Pattaya fear will be a recurring theme: "Sticking a plaster on a gaping wound".

 

So relieved you didn't use the word "gash"

Further along Beach Road near A One hotel is pretty obnoxious just now. It looks like piles of rubbish have been gathered together for collection later (today?). The sea is a filthy black colour at the shoreline. Tourists getting off boats from Koh Larn are having to wade through this filth to reach the beach. It really casts a blight on the place and cannot be giving the city a good image. I suspect City Hall don't have the resources or knowledge to resolve the problem. It's getting beyond worrying.

Surely nobody is suggesting any form of corruption or incompetence is involved? I'm sure they know what they're doing and the problem will be rectified in due time.

Get use to it, it is not going to get better any time soon. With Bangkok upstream and the entire coast line populated, as well as several major rivers. The golf has become the end zone, for the big flush of the entire country,except Phuket they have their own local black beaches. Just because you can't see it on days with wind out of the east doesn't mean it's not there all the time.

It is not crime,clamp downs on bars,political unrest etc. that is going to destroy tourism in Thailand, it is pollution. You may think tourism is going great since the numbers are rising every year but in fact that's part of the problem in other words excitements from 30 million more people pumped straight into the rivers and oceans. 

Thailand wake up before it is too late.
