Pattaya: Three spots to become "Landmarks" - Bali Hai "cruise terminal" mooted


Recommended Posts

Surely this will result in Pattaya becoming even more congested, especially when & if tourism regains any significant ground.

I remember bringing my 9 year old daughter to dinner at Nang Nual 28 years ago she simply loved Walking Street and all the attention she got from the girls. She had no idea that they were working girls who missed their own children. The lights and street clowns and jugglers were just amazing for her. A "New Look Pattaya" would just be another expensive shopping mall and make traffic jams even worse.

I'm pretty sure Pattaya will come back, certainly not this year, probably not in 2021 either. I just wonder what all the bureaucrats planning these changes do't destroy the whole thing.....and when government money is involved (I read) 30-50% of the budget goes in graft to support the lifestyles ion the anonymous men who runt he place. It's why the quality of the infrastructure doesn't last longer than the paint drying.

He promised that after all the cable burying and roof building at Walking Street the area would be a modern entertainment area with the further planned improvements.

A "Landmark" of sorts.

Pattaya's mayor Sontaya Khunpluem said.....

Walking Street will have a walking area

 

 

This will be epic mistake...This maybe the worst mistake that Pattaya has ever made if that is even possible.....

 

They want to build a walkway on the water, on the back side of the walking street beach side buildings.....

 

To do this they will need to chop off the ends of about half of the buildings....Goodby to having dinner,or having a beer over the water and enjoying a ocean view.....

 

There will be HUGE cost to cut off the ends of the buildings and piers and build this walkway.......The walking street businesses will be in ruins...

 

And what AMAZING WONDERFUL FANTASTIC things will you see on this AMAZING WONDERFUL FANTASTIC walkway.....Well on one side you will see a CLOSE-UP (as in a few feet away) of the backside of the walking street buildings and on the other side you will see the EXACT same view you can see from anywhere on beach road or Bali-hi..........

 

So in summary......A Huge  amount of money will be spent to destroy a bunch of business.....And take away a experience ALL PEOPLE LOVE having a meal or a drink over the water.......All this for the same view you can get ANYWHERE else on the waterfront.......Also WALKING STREET is called WALKING STREET because that is where people WALK,  to see the sights of WALKING STREET.........WALKING STREET THE STREET FOR WALKING......This walkway is absolutely not needed and will destroy what little character or uniqueness  that Pattaya has left.....

You call them "landmarks". We call them "eyesores"

Correct, and who wants cargo ships in Pattaya? Crazy idea when you got Leam Chabang port just north of Pattaya.

Walking street is already in ruin, it's now a driving street like the others

with 80% of the businesses closed, a lot of them forever

 

All the building on the sea side are illegals and an encroachment on the beach

the fundation pillars are in a bad state and one day or another a building should collapse

maybe with all the customers on the terace enjoying the view

 

the best and cheapest way is to buldoze the lot and restore the beach

I can only think that this new walkway  is a means to legitimise the 101 "illegal"  businesses already built out into the sea.
