Pattaya's mayor Sontaya Khunpluem revealed to Sophon Cable TV that he will receive a budget of 80 million baht for the 2021 fiscal year to work on development plans for three major areas in Pattaya.

 

The money comes from EEC funds -  the much vaunted Eastern Economic Corridor that plans to develop great swathes of the eastern seaboard.

The money would be spent on plans in three main areas as follows:

 

1. Developing the Khao Thap Phraya area as a tourism destination. The hill that overlooks the Jomtien area is a landmark of Pattaya ripe for further development, said the mayor. 

 

2. Developing transport links for tourism and solving Pattaya's transport problems. This would include putting plans together to build two new ports to ease the pressure on the Bali Hai port.

 

The ports are proposed to be on Jomtien and Krating Lai beaches.

 

3. Developing Koh Larn as a major tourism destination that could attract 5 million tourists a year. 

 

This scheme is part of ambitious plans to develop other islands on the eastern seaboard namely Koh Samet off the Rayong coast and Koh Si Chang off Si Racha, Chonburi.businesses afloat.

This day and age 80 million THB is not that much. It will only just pay for two newly built houses up for sale in the more affluent part of the gated housing estate I live in! So great swathes seems to be over egging a bit!

What he means is that this is the only green area in Pattaya that they haven't concreted over yet.

Perhaps they need even more swathes of (blue) concrete for this.117065338_968166163647969_563522590935188340_o.jpg.b94a72c43a7e904fc94fb2be7c19da38.jpg

The new port would be a great terminal location for the new Monorail 🙂 plus a bit of excavation and Pattaya would have the World,s Deepest Port !

Investments in Thai infrastructure are a great way to spend money emptying Thais displaced by the COVID impact on tourism. Making the infrastructure better will attract more tourists when the place opens up.

The money would be spent on

New sand; new anti-flood measures; a police force; more new CCTV cameras; working taximeters in every cab.
