    I haven't been to Pattaya in years. Certainly don't miss it.
    Phuket on the other hand has gotten a wee bit nicer, certainly the beach cleanup has helped.
    More and more Thai middle class are visiting Phuket. Some insurance company sponsored a runners marathon in Patong last week. Mostly Thai I observed from me morning bike ride.
    One thing about Phuket is that there are some truly fabulous beaches. Patong being vastly cleaned up and improved over the past year.
    The Chinese and Arab tourist swarming like a plague of insects in tour busses.

    Both Phuket and Pattaya suck. Hua Hinn, Cha Am and Krabi are much better places than either of them.

    Not doing much to generate the LOS reputation that used to be so important to its tourist drive. I wonder how long it will be before the Chinese start heading to Vietnam and Cambo for hols?

    PM upset over chasing of tourist by beach chair operator in Pattaya
    October 30, 2015

    Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha yesterday warned local authorities that he would hold them responsible for negligence of duties if the beach chair business return again on the beaches where ban has been in effective.

    Warning by the prime minister came as a video footage went viral in the social media showing a beach chair operator chasing a group of foreign tourists away from sitting on the beach next to her chairs.

    Angered by the improper behaviour of the beach chair operator on Wong Ammart beach in Pattaya, Gen Prayut questioned why such business was still allowed to continue despite of his policy to regulate beach and return happiness to the people.

    He was serious with the beach regulation as it was the image of the country, stating he was so upset to see the video footage.

    “Why did it happen, and why the tourists had to be chased away when it was a quarrel of two beach chair operators,” he said at a press conference yesterday.

    He said soldiers have regulated the beach and it was the duty of local authorities to make sure the illegal business would never return to the beaches.

    He said he would hold local authorities responsible if such incident happens again.

    Following the prime minister’s warning, yesterday Pattaya officials went to the Wong Ammart beach and summoned four beach chair operators to a meeting with ultimatum for them to immediately shut down their business on the beach.

    Regional police commissioner Pol Lt Gen Thanet Pinmuangam said the beach is public property and therefore no one would be allowed to occupy to do business

    He said operators had failed to register their businesses and if they continue to set up beach chairs on public spaces, they would be prosecuted.

    The future of Thailand hinges upon striking the correct beach-chair policy.

    Fight the good fight Unkle Tuu. Thailand's image is riding on your bravery and courage to do the right thing. Let's get this beach-chair policy hammered-out -- for the future of the nation! And the well-being and happiness of Thais EVERYWHERE!

    Naklua beach vendors banned after rousting tourists from sand
    Theerarak Suthathiwong
    Friday, 06 November 2015

    A Naklua beach chair vendor captured on video chasing a foreign family off the beach for not renting an umbrella was among four dealers banned from the shoreline for encroaching on public land.

    The video posted to Facebook by user ‘Chana Riddhimat’ showed the female vendor rousting the woman and her children from the sand where they had sat down on their own mats and not rented a chair.


    Police move in on Wong Amat Beach to “help” remove banned vendors. They said banned vendors can appeal to city hall for reconsideration at a later date.

    “Pattaya can say goodbye to tourism,” Chana wrote in the comments with clip that was actually put online by a competing beach vendor under the pseudonym.

    After the video went viral, police paid a visit to Winit Mahaprab, 51, and that competing vendor, Kampol Yomduang, 29, who operates next to where the incident occurred.

    Winit claimed that the tourists were laying their own mats too close to where she operates so she decided to chase them away. She then apologized for her behavior and dragging the city’s image down.

    Kampol said the clip was actually captured about a month ago but he shared it via social media again after having an argument with Winit. He said he never thought that the issue would get as much publicity as it did and later deleted the clip.



    Winit was fined 1,000 baht and both vendors were given a warning.

    However, Region 2 Police stepped in after the video went national and banned the woman and three other vendors from Wong Amat Beach.

    Region 2 commander Maj. Gen. Thanet Pinmueng-ngam led a group of Banglamung District officials, soldiers, police and Marine Department representatives to Wong Amat Oct. 28.

    They determined the vendors there actually had exceeded their leased space and were encroaching on public land.

    The four vendors said they’d been operating this way without issue for years even though they were aware of their encroachment.

    They had never been told to move until the video went viral.



    All four, including Winit, were stripped of their concessions and told to remove their property by Oct. 29 or face prosecution.

    Pol. Lt. Col. Pawatchai Sudsakorn and Pol. Lt. Col. Kowit Sawatmongkol returned to the beach that day with a posse of officers to help the vendors move their furniture. All the chairs were taken away with only some tables remaining for a second trip.

    Police said the banned vendors can appeal to city hall for reconsideration of their banishment.
