Crisis at Pattaya beach! Thai media steps up campaign to clean up resort
Sophon Cable TV have produced a damning and stark video that slams Pattaya as being filthy and talks of the resort’s “shame”.
The footage is all about the disgraceful state of the beach. There is no commentary just a series of images with dramatic music and banners in Thai.
The first calls the situation in Pattaya a “crisis”.
One talks of the disappointment of tourists who come on holiday – and then shows Asian tourists clambering over rubbish and bottles covered in brown waste.
One screams of Pattaya’s shame.
A boy’s face is one of utter distaste – he doesn’t look happy and wants to be elsewhere.
It shows navy and local authorities trying to clear up the mess – but it looks hopeless as the images turn to black and white and the music becomes increasingly dramatic.
A backhoe on the beach makes it look more like a building site or a wasteland than a place to take a holiday.
What is causing this crisis? – they ask.
And who will take responsibility?
In a tagline Sophon ask people to share the video across social media. Sophon have already been active in running stories about the continuing battle with pollution and trash on the city’s beaches.
