The mysterious “black pipes” are back off of a Pattaya beach.
Fresh claims about the ghost pipes surfaced June 12, with people posting to social media about sightings off Yim Yom Beach.
The same fables circulated in 2016 after breakaway pieces of the failed Pattaya Marina washed up on Facebook. The “pipes” are pieces of the buoys used to surround the 700-million-baht marina built between 2004 and 2008 and never opened due to repeated problems and funding shortages. It now sits rotting near Bali Hai Pier.
Facebook addicts also posted more complaints about sewage and trash that continue to ruin the image of Yimyom Beach.
