Nearly the whole of the country falls under that description.

Definitely not true at all. Check out Northern Phuket ( Naithon, Laguna, Kamala ). Granted, houses will cost you around 160 million baht but this place is a far cry from a dump. Wife and I chose to retire here over Maui in the Hawaiian Islands. Best choice we ever made. Thailand is amazing and has everything the US has and more. Check out Amanpuri Resort, Malaiwana, Pearl of Naithon etc...All great places to live.

 

Chiang Rai also has many beautiful places to live without the hefty Phuket price tag. Resell can be ridiculous up there if you sell to the “right” folks. We picked up a plot of land in CR for 3 million baht and resold for 48 million baht 1 year later. if you don’t understand why the resell is ridiculous in CR than I’m not sure what to say. But clearly you’re out of the loop 🙂

Actually, this is quite achievable. Pattaya is absolutely flush with money. Hire a crew to regularly clean the streets. No magic.

 

 

SWEEPING

 

And a few trash trucks in addition to what they have now.

 

 

I think that's the tragedy. The government officials actually think they are off the hook simply by making a few false pronouncements.

Spare a thought for the poor fury rats that will have no home and nothing to eat if this cleanup continues 🤔

Well, I suppose they could dye the Beach road rats green.😁😁😁

If Pattaya can't be a green paradise with municipal parks and gardens at least it could be a cleaner paradise. But pesonally I just wish things were better organised and maintained. The hoardings and dis-used telephone boxes etc obstructing pavements would be a great improvement.

If a male does not like sex it probably is not.

Are there any males that don't like sex?

Some repress their urges and hate others that do like sex, but why would they even go to Pattaya? Saudi Arabia would probably be a better holiday destination for them- all women covered.

None of which has any relevance to the OP. It's about tourists in Pattaya, not rich people living in Phuket.

 

IMO, it'll be like usual official announcements in Pattaya- they'll make a superficial effort on a few places like Bali Hi, and quietly forget about doing any more.

In a month it'll be like it never happened.

I think you missed "removing".

Anyway, that's normal for Thai towns and cities. Ever been to Chiang Mai? I wouldn't recognise the place without its collection of derelict telephone boxes obstructing the pavements.

Nice the Mayor got a one weeks work out of his "Municipal cleaners"

He just has to get them to work the other 51 weeks a year.  Baby steps

I was thinking the same, a one week clean up and had to order the cleaners to do their job so that would mean, if they are normally working then the areas they clean will not be cleaned for a week, Thai logic at its best.

not only Pattaya, just take the bus from BKK to Pattaya, look out of the window, 100+ ks of rubbish you will see, all done by Thais, they just dont care.
