Its not a sticking plaster that is needed.

Its Chemotherapy for the Cancer that runs the City.

Effluent and trash flowing directly into the sea has been the subject of continuing complaints in the area for years.

Time to sack the incumbent ineffective useless money laundering town officials!!!!

Hope they get the water "pristine" for the Triathlon this year.

The triathlon happen in Pattaya bay.

This weekend pollution was in a different large bay, more than 10 km South of this pic location, in an area depending of Sattahip.

Also currents of the Gulf of Thailand are going South in Pattaya area, so no way this pollution could have impacted Pattaya Bay.

Our Russian friends who choose to vacation in the QES area will be used to swimming in the Black sea although fortunately for them, the real Black Sea is a lot cleaner than the waters off Pattaya. Meanwhile the Pattaya powers that be have gone from effluent to affluent in a week.

Having lived here for years, the facade, otherwise known as the image, is all important. Sandbags give an impression of taking care of a problem, which in all likelyhood is is so large and corrupted, it is going to take a long time and several governments to correct. Meanwhile, tourist arrival numbers continue to increase and the happiness meter is off the scale.😊
