New train from Bangkok to Pattaya and Sattahip

In Thailand, a new train route was launched, connecting the capital of Bangkok and a popular resort on the shores of the Gulf of Thailand – Pattaya.

For visiting Koh Larn (Pattaya) you will have to pay?

Pattaya city authorities are considering the possibility of charging fees for visiting Koh Larn island, which is located a few kilometers from the coastline of the famous resort.

As a result, the island began to have problems with the removal and disposal of garbage: utilities simply can not keep the island clean. In addition, the island’s sewerage system and water supply system also need major repairs, for which new sources of funding must be found. Therefore, public discussions on charging fees for visiting the island are becoming more frequent, and the fee for visiting Koh Larn can be introduced as early as this year.
