Pattaya is looking to use Dongtan Beach’s recently completed water-drainage system as a model for future projects.

Major construction in the rehabilitation of Dongtan was completed at the end of last month, with separate pipes laid underground for sewage and storm runoff. Storm water flows directly into the sea while wastewater is sent to the sewage treatment plant.

Covering 1.3 kilometers between the Rabbit Resort and Yimyom Beach, the beach facelift also included a new footpath that lets tourists stroll and appreciate the scenery.
