Well the 3 years tunnel project is done, so we need something to commentate on. How about the Beach reclamation, another likely long project? For those unaware, Pattaya Beach was vanishing, sand was being lost. There has also been a lot of reports of it being littered with rubbish. The project brought sand, a particular type of sand, from afar, and recently the Northern end was reopened. The South end, from Central Festival Beach Rd South is currently being worked on, but I noticed the view from Klang now included the sea! I heard 2 reports, Mr Egg claimed it looked like Pattaya of years gone by, another said some of the new sand had already been washed away exposing bags, ie more like a single year gone by. Let us report by pictures taken on a hot Sunday afternoon, sunny but thunderclouds rolling in from the East. Looking South from Klang, low tide so plenty Beach, clear and clean. Looking North from Klang, the only rat a flying one, and a fine looking Beach. Poor guy is hungry, tourists told not to feed him, not to smoke, not to drink, not to...... Welcome to the Land of the Free. A little further North, loungers and shade, but occupying only a small width of the Beach! Looking closely, fine looking sand with no cigarette butts....good! Oh dear, a bit of rubbish arriving on the tide? Perhaps this is where it originates from, a boat unloading rubbish! Something that shouldn't be there. Back on the Promenade, or coconut bar, a work of art has been set. A closer view of only 2 rows of loungers, I hope this can be maintained! The Dusit in the distance, the Beach looking good, but a few kids lost their toys. A bit of Yeuch still flows into the sea down the beach near the Dusit corner. I must say, mostly it doesn't look bad!
