"Pattaya . Thailand :open sewers!!" Pattaya Warnings Or Dangers Tip by dzohar

Pattaya Warnings and Dangers: 44 reviews and 24 photos

In Pattaya there are open sewers with black sludge pouring from the city into the ocean.
Many of the sewers are not fenced off and in rainy muddy weather it is possible to slip into the muck.

This stuff goes into the bay where people go swimming.
The stench is pretty awful and rises into the markets between the hawkers.

In some places the sewage pools into puddles that breed mosquitos that can give you dengue and malaria.

Be very careful.
