Pattaya City Mayor Pattana Bunsawat said that several entrepreneurs had intruded on Bali Hai Cape to make use of the land. Authorities have negotiated with them to improve the area so that it can become a sunset viewpoint to attract tourists.
“After the demolition of buildings is completed, we will coordinate with Nongnooch Garden Pattaya to improve the scenery of this cape so it becomes a new checkpoint of Pattaya,” he said.
Meanwhile, Nongnooch Garden director Kampol Tansajja said that after they have surveyed the area, he plans to plant sugar palm trees to improve the landscape.
“The reason we chose sugar palm trees is because they can grow in saline soil, especially at the seaside. In addition, this tree is durable, easy to take care of and will not obscure the scenery,” he said.
“If possible, we will grow 78 sugar palm trees to make the scenery as beautiful as Promthep Cape in Phuket,” Kampol added.
