About 50 employees of a central Thailand sub-district visited Pattaya as part of a junket to the Eastern Seaboard to study self-dependent cities.
Theerasak Jatupong, director of the Pattaya branch of the Center for Maintaining Peace and Order, welcomed Muan Laopithakyothin, president of the Donman Sub-district in Nakhon Ratchasima, Feb. 20. The Korat-area bureaucrats toured Pattaya and Rayong during their Feb. 19-22 trip.
Theerasak briefed the public servants on the growth of Pattaya and introduced important destinations and development methods behind becoming a tourism city.

Donman officials said the trip was organized to increase worker efficiency as human personnel are the most-important resource in developing a city. Pattaya, they said, was interesting due to its status as one of the most important tourism destinations in Thailand.
“We chose Pattaya for observation because I believe that Pattaya is a developed, advanced and a self-dependent city which has management different from a sub-district,” Muan said. “We would like to implement certain working principles to our hometown, particularly, management and development of personnel potential.”
The Donman group continued on to the Rayong Aquarium, Sunthorn Phu Monument and Ban Jamroon community, where the neighborhood’s adherence to HM the King’s “sufficiency economy” philosophy was investigated.
