PATTAYA, Thailand – Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin’s directive for a comprehensive landscape overhaul at Bali Hai Pier and Koh Larn Island signals a pivotal moment for Pattaya City’s tourism infrastructure. This ambitious initiative aims to enhance the pier’s landscape, organize electrical and communication cables, and improve overall tidiness, underscoring a commitment to elevate visitor experiences and enhance local amenities.

On June 25, Deputy Mayor Manot Nongyai, accompanied by Deputy Mayor Kritsana Boonsawat and city officials, conducted a site survey at Bali Hai Pier. This step was crucial to align with the Prime Minister’s directives following his recent visit to Pattaya and Koh Larn Island. The Prime Minister emphasized the urgent need for a pristine and well-organized pier area to effectively accommodate tourists.
