Pattaya: Mayor promises "New Look Koh Lan" - world class resort


Recommended Posts

I've been coming here since 2004 & living here since 2011, never ever set foot on it and don't really want to mainly due to the bad publicity on here & in other publications.

 

I have zero faith in this current administration to do anything positive on Koh Larn or anywhere else to be honest.

“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.

There was an article on the Pattaya Local Government website about the Mayor's plans for the NEO Pattaya policy  a couple of months ago... you can see it here.

I did two trips to the island in 2017. My observation... Sat in a chair with thousands of other people.  Watched the parade of people walk out in the water waist deep.  99% of them were out of the water in two minutes.  There were literally NO LINES to the few restrooms. My conclusion:  "They're all swimming in a toilet".  You couldn't pay me to go back.

Given the price they charged to use the toilet I do not find it surprising that people went in the sea. Same as at the FMP on Koh Phangan, except there they didn't bother going waist deep.

He is strong arm because he manages to put most graft money in his pocket ? Animal control ,trash control , sewage control , highway deaths , people starving and homeless are not his concern because they do not put money in his pocket or give him power .

It was nice place over 20 years ago...

Can be again if they keep the speedboats off it and restrict the number of people that can visit in a day to what went 20 years ago.

That would be called sustainable tourism.

 

Money Number One here. 

 

Maximise profits today, don't care about tomorrow, and if the very thing that attracted the tourists in the first place gets destroyed in the process, so be it.

I don't expect that can happen. Thai way seems to be keep building and increasing beyond the point of saturation.
