Beach restaurants demolition - Na Jomtien


Oukiva

Recommended Posts

First, for those who don't know this place, Na Jomtien starts at the extreme South of Jomtien beach, more or less where the "river" is. The demolitions occur on the beach on the west of the land who extends along the river exit. See here on GoogleMap

Na Jomtien beach road. River on the right, beach & sea on the left.

South of this beach road, no more road and no evident construction on the beach

The beach could be nice, but rubbish everywhere :(

Drifter Cafe "on the beach"

Sea Falcon "on the beach"

Clear water and lot of fishes ;)

Digger at work. 2 of them.

From here to the North extremity,

everything on the sea-side of the street has been destroyed

Kind enough to not destroy that ;)

Ton Hat sea-side part of the restaurant. River side part untouched.

At the North extremity, nothing left...

even on the river side.

Fishing boats on the river

And a new condo being built in the middle

Public land encroachment.

It's a shame the quantity of concrete they poured on the beach along the years!

Here should be a 15 meters wide sand beach :(

Counting its last days...

same...

same for everything built on the sea-side of the street

From the North extremity to this 90° turn of the street.

I hope they clean up the mess and don't just demolish the buildings.
I also wonder if this is another type of land grab.

Hope they do it everywhere - but I doubt it.

Lots of places in Thailand been ruined by illegal development. Make the greedy sods pay to restore it all & lock them up.

the rules are always a changin.... i remember when they said buddha hill was sacred and no buildings could be built close by. Except for the massive condo development being built now :-)

The playa haters ball gives us an opportunity to hate on a diversionary of markass marks, trickass marks, punk bitches, and skip skaps, skanks, and scallywags...hoes, heffers, he ha's, and hulyhoops.

Depends what you call "close".

Big Buddha is inside a national park where - obviously - no condo can be built :)

The nearest massive condo is Unixx and is more than 500m/600yd from Buddha statue.

I wonder about the glass house and the huge Italian place next to it.  hard to believe they will touch them

IMHO they are not at risk. The beach limit seems to be the line of big trees, or the small alley along them, and both these 2 restaurant are east of this line.

 

At worse they could have a (small) problem with tables they install on the beach. In other places restaurants have been allowed to continue to use the beach this way, but only in evenings and if everything is removed from the beach every night (Empty beach during the day).

 

 

 

Edit: It's the Glass*House restaurant, http://www.glasshouse-pattaya.com/, not the agogo that this forum automatically linked to :wink:

And I see on their website they built small alleys on the beach... Maybe not good?

thats pretty much what I was talkig about, way too many tables to move, by the time they move them they will be closed.   They are being too aggressive, sitting on the sand is pleasant, and there is a lot of open beach, but I guess they cant play favorites

A little bit different, but still about encroachment south in Na Jomtien :

 

Encroaching restaurant’s extension set for demolition

 

Chonburi has ordered the demolition of Srinuan restaurant’s waterfront extension encroaching on public property.

They have removed all what they had demolished, and most of the concrete plaques that were on the beach itself.

New beach encroachment? :wink:

 

I understand that they (Pattaya City workers) have stopped the demolition for this year, giving a last high season to Sea Falcon restaurant and Drifters Cafe "on the beach", but they will come back in January to "clean" everything still on the beach.

A digger was still at work this week though, and the wall on the left is Drifter's...!

All the illegal structures that were encroaching pay the police.

This is just more yellow vs red politics I believe. I don't think the Army cares about the environment.

The Junta, stripping funds & crushing their political enemies is what we are seeing all over the country.

I will be very sad if Drifters goes. It is one of my favourite spots for a long lazy afternoon watching the sea and chatting with my friend of the day.

We can sail there in less than an hour, park our boats on the beach, have a Pie and beer the sail back.

I will miss it.
