Tourists really don't mind about Pattaya's filthy beaches, claims vendors' rep

PATTAYA: -- A representative of the deckchair and umbrella vendors on one of Pattaya's filthiest beaches has dismissed criticism of the trash saying it happens every year.

 

And in a statement that will surprise many he said that business has not been affected.

 

And he went further - he claimed that tourists really don't mind and understand the situation.

 

The story on Sophon Cable TV's Facebook page had no comments - people who normally comment in droves seemed to have been stunned into silence.

 

There were just dozens of shocked emoticons and other emojis crying

their eyes out in laughter.

 

Prawet Lamyaiwan was speaking to Sophon on Wong Amat beach. A couple of days ago the beach looked like the municipal trash dump. It has since been cleared up but many fear another wave of plastic bottles, old wood and other debris will be blown in on the next storm.

 

However Prawet was upbeat. He said business had not been affected at all. Most tourists completely understand and just put up with the unsightly trash, he remarked.

 

After all, he said, it was just something that always happened at this time of the year.

Why look for a vacation where you can swim with dolphins, when you can come to Pattaya and swim with faeces ? :cheesy:

Most tourists were fooled by the glossy brouchers put out by the tourism Authority and having never been to Thailand thought the pure white sands, and pure pristine waters were a beautiful tropical reality.  When they arrive there are no drinks with little umbrellas just a sewage treatment plant beside the city dump.  They saved all year for airfares and hotels and are now stuck.  I think the vendor needs to ask the tourists how they like the beautiful beach and not speak on their behalf.

I think they grabbed the first lottery hawker they saw and gave him a job for the day.

 

Or maybe they just found an ostrich with its head in the sand and asked it to represent them....

He has 3 amulets hanging over his beer T-shirt. Sophon is a triple-crown winner.  One must respect authorithai.

pdn311.jpgI like the garbage on the beach as well, mostly i search for some food so i don't get extorted by the vendors who like to overcharge me...last time i found a dead seagull and 2 fish, they were great on the barbie. Then i made a bed from plastic litter which was nice soft, we have to be creative without sunbeds.

"Tourists really don't mind about Pattaya's filthy beaches, claims vendors' rep"

Right, I prefer to swim in sewers. Personally I avoided Pattaya and visited only once in past 7 years.

And this was when my friend took me along for free ride. And no, I was not on the beach, I was in the shopping center and hotel.

A lot of people come to Pattaya precisely because it IS filthy, and don't really care about the condition of the beaches.

I've lived in Jomtien 12 years and have never gone in the water. With so much trash about on the beach, perhaps that health precaution is moot.

A man obviously inspired by the country's leadership.

"There are no problems here, just negative and false news"

... and after Prawet Lamyaiwan was done giving his interview to Sophon Cable, he nonchalantly tossed a styrofoam container with the remnants of his breakfast onto the beach.

They could clean the beach twice a day for a year and I still wouldn't get in the water but at least they could make some kind of effort. I think most Thais feel that cleaning up rubbish is beneath them. That's why the country is one big rubbish dump.
