Photo was taken 6th October 2020   its an ongoing problem  between the local council and the management committees of the estate..the council says the estate is not paying enough money for refuse collection removed many locations that they would pickup rubbish from  at the same time  a big increase in the estate population  causes the bins to overflow regularly.

How can they say it was a waste....?   Most of that money went straight into the pockets of the ‘right’ people…who have wisely invested it in important commodities like real estate, new cars

Shouldn't they all be waving those little Chinese flags?    

Will the people responsible for this shambles be brought to account...nah never...it,s just one blunder after another with millions of baht that have could have been used to feed the poor here just wa

here is another photo from 29th August 2017   when they removed collection points and put up signs warning of 2000 baht fine for leaving rubbish there, previously had been bins there

( and are back there again now)

It would look better if they knocked down that monstrosity that looms over it.

the monstrosity is the result of same greed and corruption which keeps producing cheap and horrible structures, marinas, concrete parks, car parks, water fountains that either  break down within a year or go unfinished, unoccupied, unused, not maintained properly and they eventually   either collapse, sink, decay, washed away and depreciate the very town you all live in.

That building which you rather see it knocked down can't easily be knocked down unless those deeply involved in the scam all literally die out.. And since they are in their 40s and 50s, that building will be around for a long, looooong time!

That path along the water looks like faux wood planks...but it's right next to the sea, only stone/concrete can stand that long time...

Why don't they just copy the beachroads like in Spain? Those are perfect..the Thai really miss the brain to build something good which lasts 50 years or more.

Clearly you dont understand Thailand 🙂

 

Why build something that lasts 50 years, when you can get a cut of rebuilding something every two years?

I'm almost convinced that  they hate trees  because of the "leaf litter"   vigorously remove trees at any opportunity and replace with concrete

this was a "sin city". It was built and expanded for only one thing..money!..it has no history, no landmarks, no memories, no love and no sense of belonging. It only has a dirty reputation. Trees beautify a city but they need attention, love and care, something the people of Pattaya culturally lack and had no time to waste on maintaining. If post-Covid life somehow brings on major changes and force us to change our dirty habits too, maybe Pattaya will change too. I can see how lack of demand for bars will eventually replace a city block of them with small green parks and trees it badly needs...

There were supposed to be socles for a big old marine anchor and some nice decoration rocks, but they were late for the naval event and never finished this "decoration"

Unfair comparison, because the second pic is an old one during the work in progress of this new area. I will have to search in my albums to get a more recent one, but they added more blue area, a nice marine compass, pedestrian paths, trees and green areas on extremities...

The boats were doing no harm there. Moved to the beach in Pattaya. Now a noisy eyesore and, before Covid, attracted a line of Chinese tour buses to clog up Beach Road.

When the boats were there it was like a junk yard.....

what part of Pattaya isn't?! and those who came for it's nightlife, you can start packing! GAME OVER

If the nightlife doesn't bounce back, many expats may start packing as well, because businesses that cater for westerners can not survive on expats alone, and will close.

I'd actually prefer it to be a Thai seaside city, I spend 99.9% of my time among them anyway and can cook myself. But there's a high risk it's to become a Chinese colony, in which case it's a fate worse than death.
