With the sand cleared of beach chairs and umbrellas, city work crews set about reshaping the sand of Pattaya Beach.
Workers flipped over sand and removed rocks, garbage and other unwanted debris, then releveled the surface to make it both appealing to look at and walk on.
Sanya Taptimsri of the Engineering Department said tractors will work on the sand on a weekly basis.
Tilling the sand will allow city workers to collect unnecessary scrap or rubbish buried beneath, like sharp rocks, objects, wood and general rubbish.
However, the workers will not do the entire beach at once, but instead about 500 meters at a time so that the other sandy areas can be open for the public.
They believe that the beach will look tidier and more pleasant after the initial works and that they will complete the job by the end of July so that things can go back to normal.
