PATTAYA:--Pattaya city councilmen ordered the city’s parks department to immediately rejuvenate about 30 palm trees on Jomtien Beach that have wilted to near-death due to improper care.

 

Council Chairman Anan Angkanawisai and three other officials toured the 500-meter stretch Feb. 1, between the View Talay 7 condominium and Avalon Beach Resort where the shriveled trees were sagging, their leaves yellow and many dead brown ones on the ground.

 

Pattaya last year spent 257 million baht on a facelift of the beachfront and, based on appearances, never bothered to water the trees since it was completed.
