Editor;

I am an Australian who often visits Jomtien. I really dislike the renovations at Dongtan Beach. This is not a quality renovation. Money is being spent and the beach is not being improved. There is less shade. There are less trees. There is less sand. The character of the beach is being destroyed.

This is an extremely hot area for pedestrians to walk through to the beach. Trees and beach have disappeared under tiles and concrete.

Dongtan Beach is really a walking beach. It is a terrible loss of amenity when the road is being widened. Cars and bikes will want to speed and make it hazardous for pedestrians. And what a lost opportunity to put the unsightly power lines underground.

It’s too late to stop the current unfortunate renovations that are nearly complete. But that must be the end of the renovations. The section to Rabbit Resort must not go ahead.

Rethink, redesign, consult with the business people and the tourists who use the area. I am sure people want a low key upgrade not the dreadful destruction taking place.

    Falang Turist like beatyfull landscape whit tree like koh samet, koh chang, koh larn and leve close too city. Dongtan Beach is The last area so keep it nice so turist have a place whitout noise. Keep the small road and make a sidewalk for peopel walking. Big road are good but not on the Beach. From rabit resort keep the small road.

    I can see this turning into a quarter mile drag strip for racing after dark.
    Why is City Hall taking away the beach? Is this suppose to make the Beach beautiful? I think not.
