This is such a very beautiful sight to behold from a high-rise hotel! Sooooo relaxing, isn't it? But can you notice the oil spills lining this beach? It's mainly caused by banana boats, the tractors that carry them to the beach and some jet-skis. Who should be blamed for this place's destruction?
This photo was taken by my then 10 year-old daughter, JD, from our room on the 19th Floor of Nusa Playa Hotel, a 5-star hotel in Jomtien, Pattaya during our department retreat in summer 2008 . Because of the oil spill, we didn't allow our kids to go swimming here as advised by our Thai friends.Tsk!Tsk! So they just enjoyed swimming at the hotel's pool on the 5th Floor (shown on photo below taken by Josh). It's choosing between nature and man-made. But what better choice is left? Mom and dad know better so sorry to our kids for being KJ (kill joy): in not allowing them to contract possible skin, lung problems, etc. from this polluted beach. Poor new generations... Have a great weekend everyone!
