Green rocks draw crowds near Bali Hai


Shutterbugs were out in force at Bali Hai Pier to capture rocks that turned green almost in time for St. Patrick’s Day.

The beach around the South Pattaya pier stretching to near the lighthouse was covered in green seaweed. Photographers were out to capture the strange sight that actually is not that uncommon.

Many Thai and foreign tourists visited and took photos during sunset. It was truly a nice and romantic atmosphere.

Phubet Patchanee, a waiter at the Bali Hai Sunset restaurant, said it happens every year between December and March. Most of the time, tourists would take pictures during sunset, including pre-wedding photos because it is a nice place in Pattaya.
