“My friend and I like to exercise on Jomtien Beach because it is clean and exercising outdoors makes us feel good,” Andrey said. “But because the equipment provided by Pattaya has become old, it’s no longer ideal, so we’ve started using sand-filled fuel bottles as weights. I hope, though, that the city would renovate the weight-training area here.”
