In addition to picking up rubbish, wild plants were removed from canals and lakes.

Narong said Sattahip has problems with maintaining public areas, especially tourist attractions that now look dull and have become tacky. The only way to resolve the problem is to work together, encouraging others to help keep the city clean, he said.
