Following the handing out of new beach equipment a representative of the Pattaya administration has dismissed recent criticism.
Following reports that since receiving the new equipment some operators had increased prices as much as 100 percent he simply said it is up to them what they charge, the states not going to meddle with that.
Speaking during an interview with Manager Phaphornan Leuangphanuwat used a lot of buzz words to describe Pattaya’s beaches.
Some of our favourites being “beautification of Pattaya beaches,” “international standard” and “pleasing to the eye.”
However the subject of tourists toppling of the new chairs or being burnt by the sun absorbent cushions seemed not to go down well with Phaphornan simply saying operators got the equipment for free.
When the subject of pricing was approached stating that some operators had increased their prices from 40 baht to as much as 100 baht in some cases he said “it’s not the states job to determine prices that is up to each individual.”
What do you think about the new equipment? Is it an improvement over how things were before?
