Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin has mandated a comprehensive overhaul of the Bali Hai Pier and Koh Larn.

The ambitious project aims to revitalise the pier’s landscape, streamline electrical and communication cables, and boost overall tidiness. This initiative underscores the Thai premier’s commitment to elevating visitor experiences and enhancing local amenities.

Deputy Mayor Manot Nongyai, alongside Deputy Mayor Kritsana Boonsawat and city officials, conducted a site survey yesterday, June 25 at Bali Hai Pier. This crucial step aligns with the prime minister’s directives following his recent visit to Pattaya and Koh Larn Island. PM Srettha stressed the urgent need for a pristine and well-organised pier area to effectively cater to tourists.

Specific directives include clearing debris, organising infrastructure, and ensuring cleanliness to improve the pier’s appeal and functionality. City workers will identify and remove obsolete cables while arranging those in use into designated ducts, aiming to enhance both the aesthetic charm and operational efficiency of the pier, reported Pattaya Mail.
