Chonburi's Senator Surachai Chaitrakulthong is luring potential investors from Taiwan and other countries by promising 'Thailand's plus is the availability of a skilled workforce'.
The contrary is true, Thailand's problem is the lack of a skilled workforce.
Not a Periscope
No it's not a periscope that errects from Pattaya's new Beach Road. It's the simplest and cheapest version of an aquifer for the promenade's new trees.
It's just what you do if you forget during the planning that your plants need some water.
These pipes will have a very short life...
Congested Drain
The new drain along the 3rd lane is covered with old and damaged castings.
The drain itself is already crammed with rubbish and a small fresh water pipe.
No chance to catch and drain rainwater.

Base-pad
All along Pattaya's new Beach Road City Hall installed this Base-bads.
Pessimists told me that they are designated for another invasion of Itthiphol Kunplome's beloved Dolphins, Pattaya's landmark, already installed en masse along North Road and on Bali Hai.
Other People believe that we will get something very different.
Instead of street lights City Hall will place advertisements from VISAcard, 7-Eleven, McDonalds and Coca-Cola® along Pattaya's new racing circuit, they say.

Pattaya's highly skilled Professionals designed a flood preventing canal on Pattaya's new Sai Nueng, the City's Beach Road.
The canal is just 34 centimeter wide and 27 centimeter deep...

This was the home of a tree. It was removed, but the hole remains unsecured.
Dangerous not only during the nights.
Pattaya Beach Remake
Near the entry to Walking Street the sea decided to support the destruction teams.
The sea removed part of the Promenade itself.
Therefore the site remains unsecured...

Some people doubt the color on these 'stones' will survive next year.
Time will tell.
Nevertheless, grey can be a nice color too...

November 3rd 2013:
Power transformer, stinky trash dumpsters, City Hall's banners and small businesses are already obstructing the Southern Part of Pattaya's new Beach Promenade. Sometimes they left just a few centimeters for Pattaya's walking tourists - annoying.

It's reality. The new Beach Promenade gets closed for handicapped people in front of Mike Shopping Mall. There are plans to install some kind of a wooden balkony on the Beach side, but until then: No passage!

I'm at Pattaya's Beach almost daily. Occasionally I can see some people working, but mostly they sit around and are waiting, as documented on the photo below. Nevertheless, the construction of the new Beach Promenade happens very fast. There must be some invisible ghosts doing the works - or the people are working only if they can't see me...
NightWalker's Pattaya Picture Show: The Remake of Pattaya Beach
August 27th 2013:
I was told that the new Beach Promenade ends at the former pier, just in front of Pattaya's stinky pump station. There are no plans to provide security for pedestrian between the Beach Promenade and the entry to Pattaya's Walking Street. People responsible for this decision must be completely brainless.

Pattaya's Beach Ghost obviously doesn't like the new trees planted in front of his house. Three of the four plants already died.
Update 11.8.: Nong Nooch Garden already replaced the trees with larger ones. Let's hope the ghost will accept them.

Here, between Mike Shopping Mall and the 7-eleven Minimarket at the entry to Soi 13/4 (Pattayaland), starts the critical part of the project. If City Hall capture the about three meters needed for the new traffic lane, there will remain just about one or two meters for pedestrians on Pattaya's new Beach Promenade. Let's pray and wait how Pattaya's highly trained beach engineers will solve the problem.
