Why is Dong Tan Beach Being Destroyed?

Recommended Posts

This looks pretty nasty.. it's the beach at the Northern end of Jomtien, also popular with Gay people.

 

It looks like a major road is being constructed, eating up lots of beach space in favor of cars?


Really?

 

Is anyone still pretending that Pattaya is a beach resort, where families might actually visit a beach?

This is criminal .....Absolutely criminal.....Some one should

be going to jail for this....

 

That strip of trees was beautiful....I loved walking there...

It was a island of paradise that I had hoped would be forgotten

about after they destroyed Jomtens main beach,and

built that crappy lifeless promenade...

 

VERY SAD.....

 

Also I bet they are going to plant lots and lots and lots

more bloody palm trees ...YAWN.....

Oh look! yet another beach improvement that places a road full of cars between property, pedestrians and the sea.

 

Next time anyone is taking pictures of the big sign, can they take a moment to put aside the righteous indignation, wipe away the tears and see how far this road is going? To Pattaya Park? Or all the way to Pratumnak 6? Or just as far as that huge tract of undeveloped land slap bang in the middle?

This phase of construction is going as far the White House, then the funding runs out. The road will be widened by about a meter.

Damn. I'd hoped they would somehow overlook at least that section, the only peaceful, shaded area on the whole stretch. But if there are a few baht to be made, well, we know what happens. I wish there were a hell for those responsible to go to...

It's quite tragic to see the wanton destruction of the decades old trees,
obviously someone totally hates them even though they where very popular with us "cheap Charlies"
who brought our own chairs mats and umbrellas :(

They've probably seen photos of beaches in the US like this and think that is what tourists/

farang like, and we need to copy them. Then even more people will come to holiday here.

 

That's the typical Thai mentality of authorities that have power and money to make decisions

unfortunately.

17 years here and i never saw clean water there .

Place to avoid i would say.....unless you have no other option and like 

the quality tourism ..............

You people in View Talay 5 & 7  and others on that strip, get ready for the boom box cars and weekend parties.

What a shame.  The only peaceful stretch of Jomtien Beach will soon look like the rest of the big, steaming heap.
