Crews dig in on Jomtien Beach facelift


Jomtien Beach’s 270-million-baht facelift is underway and officials promise that, two years from now, it will look a lot better than it does currently.

Contractors have begun taking out trees and ripping up sidewalks, starting from the Dongtan police box to Chaiyapruek Road, an area of 40,000 sq. meters.

The work is being carried out by Nong Nooch Land and Garden Design Co., an arm of the award-winning Najomtien garden and elephant park, in tandem with the Pattaya Engineering Department.


Estimated at 273 million baht and lasting until March 2017, the project calls for resurfacing of sidewalks; planting trees; building sports, recreation, water amusements; adding a playground, public rest area, and a viewpoint. There will be a beach volleyball court with grandstands on two sides, four-meter-wide stairs running down to the beach and a tiled beach footpath.

In addition, new parking facilities, public restrooms, a police substation, and other facilities will be constructed.
