Pattaya Buses and Boats to Move to Bali Hai Pier, Parking on Beach Side Banned

Pattaya —

Pattaya mayor Poramase Ngampiches and city officials met on Wednesday to discuss new parking spots after parking on the Pattaya Beach side is set to be banned from March 1st.

On February 15th, the mayor announced on social media the return of the ban on parking on the Pattaya beach side of the road from March 1st in response to increasing traffic issues.

The mayor said he was finding new parking spots for tourists, which may include a parking space at the wastewater treatment plant in South Pattaya near Walking Street.

People could easily get to Walking Street and Bali Hai Pier from this spot, according to the mayor.

The ban on parking, which will go into effect from March 1st, is also applicable to buses and boats, Poramase said, adding they would need to relocate to Bali Hai Pier. Boats will no longer be allowed to pickup customers on the beach directly and tour buses should only drop off and pickup passengers at Bali Hai Pier.

The mayor would officially inform the public and tourists of this change again later.
