Bangkok (NNT/VNA) - Chon Buri province of Thailand and relevant organisations have collaborated to develop Pattaya into a city of "Tourism for All," by constructing facilities for the elderly and persons with disabilities. 

The Designated Areas for Sustainable Tourism Administration (Public Organisation) and the Friendly Design For All Foundation of Thailand on March 1 launched a project to develop tourist sites under the concept of Tourism for All in Pattaya and its region.
