    Piles of trash wash ashore on Pattaya beaches due to high winds and recent storms

    Central Pattaya Beach was littered with a long trail of garbage that had been washed ashore due to high winds and waves that hit the city yesterday, September 29th.


    The wind and waves were offshoots of the Noru storm which mostly directly missed Pattaya and hit the North instead, but did drive steady gusts of air, some quite strong.


    The garbage consisted of plastic bags, liquor bottles, foam, and all kinds of plastic cups, according to The Pattaya News reporters. The odorous debris was swept onto the beach by strong winds and covered about 2 kilometers of the beach, disgusting beachgoers.

    Pattaya residents in Naklua and Dongtan also reported high levels of debris on the beaches, especially near Pratumnak Soi 5.

    Some parts of the beach turned dark due to the trash. Even if Pattaya was not directly affected by the northern storms, many residents still reported gusty winds and light rainfall.


    Pattaya City officials are reportedly aware of the trash issues which they say was washed from the ocean and not from local residents leaving garbage on the beach and will be working on removing it this weekend.

    Looks a bit like many 'post-brexit' beaches in the UK.

    It does remind me of the queue for the bus from Ekkamai, I must admit.

    Not surprising that a poster might challenge anything posted by someone who posts lies, and conveniently ignores the consequences of such behaviour!
