The Junta are probably leaving all the Boats and Jet skis on the Beach to use as Torpedo target practice for the new Submarines.

just waiting for the next major marine / tourist boat disaster to scare aware the tourists again !!  Unfortunately nothing is "pro-active"here and it will take a marine disaster plus filthy polluted beaches to ensure tourists go elsewhere and only then will there be some head scratching wondering why there are no tourists and no money coming in !!   Ought to show filthy Pattaya beach video on Chinese television !!  that would do the trick !!

Jesus over the years I and my friends have taken a speed boat now and then to ko larn, but never saw such mass production as goes on now.  Obviously word gets out about large organized tours and the boats show up

And when these speedboats land returning their passengers to Pattaya, you can openly see trash being dumped out of the boats along with them. Then they go get their photos made from a Styrofoam food tray and cling film, which probably ends up in the sea later.

Bali Hai pier cannot cope with the number of boats, busses and tourists.

The boat operators took a stand, deciding to run their businesses how they want to, instead if how an unelected, appointed body of officials told them to. Good for them.

 Pattaya city has a business to operate,we all  get that,,,but , IMHO our new beach was built to increase ease and speed to load and off load tour groups,and some estetics in mind... and it serves its purpose..Bali can never handle this volume...how ever...the main problem is the ''quality and volume of buses'' used to shuttle the Chinese and indian budget tourists....the mornings are unbearable ,the exhaust from diesel belching buses has ruined this area,.....this problem such an easy fix.....allow only new smaller well maintained buses( better yet electric) on beach rd,train the drivers not speed ,drive with courtesy and obey the crosswalks,then start on the boat operators and tour group herders ,who are the real cause of congestion NOT THE CHINESE...

Whether the boats are at Bali Hai or the beach, busses would still have to use Beach Road. The main parking place is off Beach Road between Soi 6 and Klang.

Correct,with some buses still parking on side streets and some parking in the lot behind Big c......all we need is a better quality bus and efficient utilization of buses on beach rd ,but this would take an effort...,every morning we have over 10 traffic police posted along beach rd  ,most are eating ,socializing and looking at their phones.soi1, now so busy with foot traffic ,is out of control with thai scooters ,speeding and driving the wrong way..as though its a game to weave in and out of Chinese and Indians walking to their hotels....it is insanity......so we are back to square 1....lack of respect ...and the cycle of beach abuse continues...

PEOPLE just do what THEY want here...no enforcement of any laws/rules.

Why was Baki Hai improved to accomodate many boats, with jettys and these speedboat operators STILL work from the beach???

Total shame the Pattaya seafront. Any other country would turn it into jewel.

They are turning it more and more into just another part of the.... hole.... 

Pity... MS>

Thai tourist resorts are no longer for the 4-5 star traveler of seasoned world traveler that seeks organization, decent infrastructure, and a government that takes care of their environment. Pattaya, Phuket, Krabi, and other tourists sites in Thailand are now for the cheap budget traveler that doesn’t mind bus traffic jams, pollution, or crumbling infrastructure. 20...30...40 years ago Thailand certainly had a different clientele of tourists. Unfortunately it now has gone down hill.

That is not true. anyone traveling from hotels out of the city would just go straight down Third Rd directly to Bali Hai. Why would anyone traveling from Naklua, Jomtien, the dark side etc etc go anywhere near to Beach Rd?

When they actually ran the speedboats from Bali Hai for a while a year or so back, the reasons for doing so were cited as traffic issues rather than boats on the beach, and it worked, for the short period it was enforced the number of coaches on the Beach road reduced dramatically and the place was much better for it.

I honestly don't understand the reason for the interest in Pattaya for ANY tourist from ANY country. I really don't.

It's a mess of a city with dirty beaches and the sea water quality is a notch above a sewer.

I also don't understand the interest of thousands of Chinese flocking an average tiny island of Koh Lan every freaking day for the last 10 freaking years.

I,I,I...I just don't get it! I am about to give up on humankind 🙂

The photo is the epitome of absolute madness
