The low season for those working on Jomtien beach is about to get worse as the 600-million-baht shoreline renovation project arrives in Dongtan Beach.
The familiar site of Beach chair rentals, Masseuses and street vendors and sellers in Dongtan Beach is being replaced with a construction site as the 7.8 sq. kilometre renovation project gets under way much to the dismay of the majority of people who make a living along the stretch of beach.
Many are disgruntled by the renovation project which just for the Dongtan phase will cost 45.4 million Baht and is being carried out by Nong Nooch Landscape and Garden Design and scheduled to be completed in late April 2018.
As part of the advancements there will be a 6 meter wide road from Dongtan police box all the way to the Rabbit Resort and a new larger parking lot.
While some are unhappy many vendors agree that low season is the best time for the work to be carried out and that they will carry on as best they can.
