PATTAYA, Thailand – Pattaya municipality initiated an extensive clean-up operation at Bali Hai Pier On May 21, focusing on removing accumulated waste, sea debris, and abandoned cargo boats. This endeavour comes in response to growing concerns about waste buildup and abandoned ship debris, which have been diminishing the area’s charm and potentially tarnishing Pattaya’s reputation as a top tourist destination.
