Say goodbye to a Pattaya I-con – The Mermaid Fountain
The new traffic lane along Pattaya Beach Rd is only meters away now before it reaches the Pattaya Klang T-intersection and one of the favourite meeting points for tourist and expats on Pattaya Beach has only hours before it is destroyed and is seen no more, destined to lay in a land fill somewhere.
Known as “Poloma, the fountain, the meeting point” it has been a landmark location for many many years, and is a popular place to stop for a rest after walking along Beach Rd, it is where countless friends have gathered to catch up and talk, drink, eat, sit and enjoy the fresh ocean air. The fountain has also been the backdrop to many concerts and beach festivals and will be missed by those who felt they had somewhere to go and relax.
So take one last look at the past as progress continues to steam roll ahead and a new future is created.
