    Good news that there’s little chance of rain for the rest of today but torrential rain last week tested the millions of baht spent on better storm drains around the city

    But again, many areas of Pattaya were swamped after the heavy rains on September 26. Last week’s floods came despite huge expense and years of construction to install new drainage systems. But certain parts of the city clearly remain at high risk during the monsoon season and peak deluges.

    Pattaya’s third Road is one such area and last week’s deluge saw water levels quickly rise up to 60 centimetres+ and cause a huge tailback of traffic on the city’s major thoroughfare.

    Other parts of the town were similarly affected by floodwater run-off rushing down from higher areas. Sois Khao Noi and Khao Talo saw torrents of water flowing down to inundate the railway road while sections of Sukhumvit Road and Pattaya Beach Road were also submerged.

    The new drainage works are perfectly capable of handling the general rains during the annual wet season but there are still times that the systems in place will never be able to cope.

    City engineers rushed water pumps to the most badly affected areas last week and, as the Gulf tide receded, the floodwater eventually drained into the ocean, leaving businesses and citizens with a lot of cleaning up to do.

    A Facebook User “Atchareeya Sotrapram” was extremely confused when the hotel she was staying at in Pattaya, Chonburi Province forced her to wash a towel.

    Atcharee had accidentally smudged some makeup on the towel in her room, the hotel informed her that she would have to wash the towel until the smudge went away, or she will be charged for damaging the towel. This is an unusual case, normally a hotel will take care of gentle stains. what’s your opinion? Is it the hotel’s job to clean the towels?

    Atchareeya stated in the post “I stayed at a hotel in Pattaya, at check-out the reception called the maid to check the room. While waiting for the maid the hotel handed me a receipt stating that I had already received my security deposit back, I signed it and they took the receipt back. Then the maid called and told reception the towel in the room was smudged. The hotel informed me they had to seize my security deposit. It was just makeup smudge from my powder, easily comes off with water.

    I informed them that I’ve been to zero to six-star hotels and this has never happened. It’s such a small problem that happened after I took a shower. There were no rules that stated if a towel or bed sheet was smudged they would have the right to take all of the security deposit. I’ve even worked as housekeeping before at Sofitel Hotels. Reception responded by telling me to go wash the towel and then come get the security deposit.

    VIDEO: Pattaya Hotel Forces Customer To Wash Towel

    I was stunned for a moment but I went back to my room because I wanted to see how dirty the towel was to cause all this trouble. The maid handed me some laundry detergent, she told me the reception ordered her to give it to me. I recorded a video while I was washing the towel out of anger and was complaining in the video. I decided not to send it to the manager because the orders might’ve come from the manager, so they can keep the money to themselves. It was strange how they made me sign the receipt as proof that I have received the security deposit back when it clearly was not the case.

    They finally gave me my money back. I don’t know where to file a report on this, at first I took the video to ask for a refund but this is in Thailand, it’s not like other countries. I am now back in Melbourne, Australia. Hopefully, this story will help warn other customers as an example case. I’m still shocked by being forced to wash the towel at the hotel. Thank you.”

    Plans are afoot to build new public toilets underground on Pattaya beaches, according to a report in The Pattaya News.

    Deputy Mayor Pattana Boonsawad says 4 underground facilities will be built along Pattaya Beach Road initially, with additional amenities being opened on Jomtien and Dongtan beaches.

    It’s understood the washrooms need to be built below street level to comply with the ban on construction on Thai beaches. Deputy Mayor Pattana lists Vietnam as an example, saying the model has worked well on that country’s beaches.

    The project is part of the plans to upgrade Pattaya’s infrastructure, which will also see modern cigarette bins installed at the new facilities.

    It’s understood that the proposal is only in the planning stages for now. Local authorities must first find suitable locations for the new facilities and then apply for funding.

    There was no mention on whether or not the new public toilets would be free to use.

    Hours of torrential rain that hit Pattaya yesterday caused flooding and made some roads impassable. But that didn’t stop some adventurous drivers giving it a red-hot shot!

    The road by the railway, heading towards Sattahip, was under half a metre of water in places. The area is prone to flooding when the monsoonal rains kick in, according to the 77kaoded report.

    The Beach Road was passable but the water there was “black and stinking” and flowing straight into the sea.

    A foreigner, along with his female passenger, ended up even further underwater when they drove into an unseen drain. They were both wearing helmets at the time but it may have been more use if they’d worn lifejackets instead.
