So the Chinese will have the Thais' in concentration camps just like the Muslims in china

Do you think it will work - teaching them to concentrate for more than two minutes?

aah the good old days when there was plenty of shade/seating and grassed banking where thai families could eat together...apart from a little renovation it was a joy....now after spending millions of

"greened"   then why do they keep cutting down the old large shade trees and replacing them with puny palm trees that have no root system to hold the soil together and offer very little shade  

Not sure this is what tourists want who frequent Pattaya?   More and more destinations are becoming soulless without any vibrancy and the feeling of being alive.     The word #orde

I guess some of you are chin up, hiso from Monaco?

I think the BR walkway is nice I walk it almost everyday.

Very wide and clean when I walk. 

Plenty of trees and shade and benches to sit if cannot find them, sounds pretty lame.

Projects like road constructions will never ever finish. Every year they start all over again. Same road. It is how they steal the yearly construction budget. 90% of yhat budget gets redistributed between the dirty guys. 10% goes into construction works that never end. They are not supposed to ever end coz it is a permanent income source.... Amazing Thailand

Are you serious? Between the lucky lucky men and the time share touts its far more hassle. The beaches are few and far between too.

 

 

We were there 2 years ago. Beach front Hotel next to Veronica's. Dark sand beach which was decent enough and never approached by anyone not even any of the drab tourists. Obviously other places may be worse for that sort of thing. We were booked for Gran Canaria last month but got covided off so did Portugal instead. The worst thing I find is the sea (north Atlantic) is far too cold after Thai holidays.

I assume, then, that there will be lifts for the handicapped to access the underground toilets.

Well considering they cant even make a straigh pathway without snapping your ankles, I would not hold out... never seen a single wheelchair user in 12 years of living all over Thailand, mainly Bangkok...

Consider a overhead tram along Beach Road in Pattaya.  Pedestrians area only below the tram.   Convert the existing Beach Road into a long grassed park that is well lighted and open.  Folks can picnic and walk the Beach Road strip as well as take the overhead tram.  It could benefit the locals, (business and public alike), the tourists would love it.  With a little imagination the area could be a visually pleasing and desirable destination to enjoy your day.
