After viewing photos of Pattaya Bay in the 1960’s and 70’s then comparing those images to recent photos of Pattaya Bay you realize just how quickly Pattaya has, and still is developing.
These images (below) were taken at the Pattaya Viewing Point in 2017 and 2011. When you compare the images it is very noticeable that the Pattaya skyline includes several new tower blocks.
If you happen to visit the Pattaya Viewing Point you will also witness evidence of this rapid, and and sometimes unwelcome development literally towering over you.
The photo above was taken in March 2017. It’s difficult to be precise, but I counted approximately 10 tower blocks more than on the photo (below) taken in 2011.
If the Waterfront building ever gets finished it will offer it’s residents some of the finest views in all Pattaya, but for visitors to the Pattaya Viewing point it will be viewed as a blot on the landscape.
