Pattaya warning: Avoid going outdoors as "smaze" descends on resort

Siam Chon News advised residents in Pattaya to stay indoors after a thick blanket of smoke filled haze descended on large swathes of the resort.

 

Nobody knew where the smaze had come from but PM2.5 was a likely culprit.

 

Due to the possibility of the particulate matter in the air the media said people should avoid going outside and if unable to do that they should wear a mask.

They said that there were fears that it was dangerous though how lethal was undetermined at this stage.

 

The weather conditions were very hot, they reported, after a brief cooler snap.

I always hated the filthy rubbish everywhere and fecal sea in Pattaya, but the putrid air from November until the Songkran rains in April was the reason I left Pattaya after ten years.    A lot

It's like called "smaze" so people laugh and not think too much about it...   It really should be called "death air," and then maybe people will think

And you need to show half a million of baht in the bank, insurance and medical certificate and be in quarantine for 2 weeks for that lovely air in Pattaya...

A lot of people, including myself, had a constant cough. The reasons for the pollution are varied, being close to Bangkok, the traffic, the fact that it is in in the middle of the EEC industrial area, and significantly the electricity power plant in neighboring Rayong. Also because of the nonexistent rubbish tip, people dump rubbish on every unused plot of land and this gets burnt. In every direction. Even the railway station just dumps their rubbish by the tracks and burns it every week or so. 
 

I first visited Pattaya as a kid in 1978. It was known as the pearl of Asia then. My dad, when came to visit me in 2011 and couldn’t believe the s4ithole it had become. 
 

I studied the AQI maps for a while and chose to move to Phangnga.  Best thing I ever did. Looking up at the blue skies now, it Pattaya from November to April you won’t see a blue sky. It looks constantly overcast, but it is really air pollution.

 

The ocean has clean water down here also, most days in Pattaya you go knee height in the sea and you can’t even see your feet. The seawater in Pattaya is a mix of farang, Indian, Russian, Arab, Chinese and Thai fecal matter. The last time i dared go in about 9 years ago I saw a used condom and a dead frog.
 

Filthy place. The rubbish strewn streets, the fecal ocean and the putrid air. It was embarrassing when people came to visit me.
With the big plans for the EEC it will only get worse. 
 

 

Why ten years to leave I wonder,long time to go without a swim!🐠

Natai is lovely, lets just hope the airport and train connections will never be built. Pilai beach will be right at the end of its runway. This will turn Khokkloi in a huge city and will become a cesspool as well. I also moved to Phang Nga for air quality reasons. Thai Muang has about the best air the country on a yearly average.

Every week we hear of how they will look into improving this, but sadly, like most things, <deleted> all gets done. 

Surely shome mishtake.

I'm sure I remember months ago, didn't someone have a brain-fart of an idea which involved spraying water to reduce PM2.5?

Or have I remembered incorrectly due to a drunken smaze?

The reason of the smaze is probably pm2.5? The ignorance of the writer is hillarious. Haze is pm2.5, the question is what is turning the entire area from Samut Songkrann, Bangkok, all the way to Pattaya in the red zone. Even Ko Sichang has high values, so traffic is clearly not the reason. Who is burning what, and where? Wind direction for Pattaya is North West.
