Pattaya authorities and Burapha University have jointly prepared the Pattaya City Development Plan 2023-2027 to turn the seaside resort into a tourist city of the future, Pattaya Mayor Sonthaya Khlunplom said.

“Due to the two-year domestic spread of the coronavirus, Thailand has had to go through significant changes in many ways. As far as Pattaya is concerned, these changes are to some extent in line with the Neo Pattaya development plan, which we began to implement 3 years ago to ensure sustainable tourism in the future, ”said the Mayor of Pattaya.
