Projected Pattaya Marina: April Fools Ruse

We‘re sorry to have to tell you 249 Avid Readers that the Marina Article was an April Fool‘s joke, more‘s the pity. Before you eagle-eyed Pattaya monitors retort "but the April fool window of opportunity closes at 12 pm!" The grafix guy was away and we uploaded the article late, sorry about that. The Marina design was adapted from the blueprint of the city of Atlantis, as you classicists and Platophiles will be aware.

Pattaya, the 1st of April 2008 [Pattaya Daily News]: If anyone was taken in by the article and is consequently indignant, we reserve the right to indulge in a little April Fool’s liberty taking and trust you will take it in the spirit it was intended. However, we’ll keep the article in the archive for your continued reference.

Pattaya Daily News is proud to publish a scoop regarding the bold new plan to close off Pattaya Bay and transform it into a marina to rival the one scheduled to be built in Phuket by Bill Gates. Sources close to the development consortium, World Marinas Co Ltd, leaked the momentous news to Pattaya Daily News earlier today, April 1, 2008. Apparently, the plan is to block off Pattaya Bay from the coast near Laem Chabang down to the coast adjacent to the Royal Cliff Resort at an estimated cost of Bt 15 billion.

Roger Guinevere, CEO of World Marinas, was unavailable to comment, but a top executive with the organisation, who cannot be identified, told PDN reporters that the new marina was to be built in a series of concentric circles with canals between the concreted infrastructure with linking water ways allowing eventual access to the sea. The second circle will feature a horse racing stadium , while other circles will accommodate residential, commercial and recreational facilities.

This design is the ultimate defence against tsunamis, the source is reported to have said. Work is scheduled to commence in Q3, 2008 after provisional soundings have been taken and seabed infrastructure has been built. The intent is to truly promote Pattaya to world-class status with facilities to rival top global resorts.
