Pattaya people have been outraged by plans to rip out one of the resorts most loved landmarks.
And now a petition has been started to save the dolphin roundabout in North Pattaya.
Hundreds have signed already to save the roundabout that engineers say must go to improve traffic flow.
A group called Pattaya Watchdog even produced a sad farewell mock-up to the beloved traffic circle. Pictured lit up at night it said:
"R.I.P. You will always be in our memories. Dolphin Roundabout."
The group has called on Pattaya mayor Anan Charoenchasri to quash plans to rip it out and instead come up with something else in consultation with Pattaya people.
They said that the landmark had been named as one of the twelve most beautiful in the world in 2015 by the "British Roundabout Association".
Daily News reported that there had been an online storm of protest at the moves to rip out the roundabout. So far 300 people have signed the protest petition on campaign site change.org.
