Re: Pattaya Beach still has problems (PM Mailbag Friday, 25 April 2014) – I completely disagree that the trash being left on the ground is due to the Thais. I spend several days a week on my motorbike out in the villages, which are 95% Thai people. They are spotless. You only find the trash when you venture into the tourist dominated areas.
The beach walk is so much nicer than before. The city did a great job. Are there areas that need to be fixed because of poor craftsmanship? Yes. I am sure that this will be corrected soon, and by a more professional crew. Love the wooden viewing platforms, the new benches, and the handicap ramps.
