There are infrastructure plans afoot to create what he sees as a "World Class Resort" for the island that sits off Pattaya.

The only thing world class is the constant BS

“Manager said that Koh Lan was now going to be an NEO.   However, here at Thaivisa we are a little in the dark as to what this may mean. “ He was referring to the number of foreign t

It will be a beautiful pristine island with clean beaches and clear of pesky vendors because there will be no dirty farangs spending money in Thailand especially in Koh Lan.

Koh Larn is a special island without cars(nearly) and a good friendly atmosphere, please do not destroy this with mayor office world resort plans.

 

Use the covid time to clean up the island, that it needs.

 

From several visits with overnights I could use some more fun in the evening.

 

Work with the beachs, make them more nice and quiet, make good beach restaurants, and only one beach for chineese hords please.

 

Then I will love to come again.

Never a truer word said etc etc...

By whom? That little spin, a jewel in the crown of his fiefdom, arises from a TVF web marketing writer's imagination. You bit. But there's one even louder dog whistle, heh.

About the imaginary "world class" that exists only in the virtual world TVF bashing? Well, but that was thrown in for the usual marketing purposes. It always works. For that to stop, then we'll have to stop trolling with it and salivating when it's used in a headline.

 

The original article says nothing about "world class" but merely notes that some improvements are planned with which our Urban Planners can all agree, except that the Mayor mentioned them. He says the island gets 5 million visitors a year. Obviously that does imply a need for more attention to the island's facilities & infrastructure.

Have they demolished the cattle feeding grounds on China Beach yet? It used to be quite nice a decade ago, utterly spoiled by the hordes last time I saw it.

Have you ever known an intelligent "urban planner". I know many that masquerade under that moniker.

World class, world beating are new terms that mean total failure. Trumps world beating testing, the UKs' track and trace. Pattaya World Class resort... Koh Larn (Lan) was world class 50 years ago and now is an island covered in rubbish sitting in a sea of pollution waiting for the developers to cover it in high rises and high end resorts with private beaches.

First it was Pattaya, then it was Jomtien, now it is Koh Larn.... if the ultimate desire is to shift several thousand Chinese tourists back and forth from Pattaya each day, as it previously was, it will reinstate itself as the biggest tip in the Gulf of Thailand.

Is he going to cull all the wild dogs?  Get rid of the unsightly rubbish dumped anywhere and everywhere?  If he can't get taximeters to work in the fiefdom of Pattaya, I don't hold out much hope.
