Marina mooted in the east
THAILAND: A new luxury marina in Bang Saray near Pattaya in eastern Thailand is being considered by the Transport Ministry.
According to Chayathan Promsorn, permanent secretary for transport, a three-phase feasibility study will be conducted to determine possible locations, the economic benefits and environmental impact.
Marine Department figures claim that Thailand has 13 tourist ports that can be properly classified as marinas. Four of these are in the eastern region. More are needed to help boost tourism.
