No smoking? Now Hua Hin police get tough with beach booze ban

Picture: Thaivisa

 

HUA HIN: -- Just when it was expected that signage would begin to go up to ban smoking on Hua Hin's beach comes an altogether different directive.

 

A sign has gone up near the Centara Hotel forbidding the drinking or distribution (sale) of alcohol.

 

The sign that Thaivisa believes went up on Monday is 'signed' by the Prajuab Khirikhan provincial police.

 

No mention is made of any fines - or jail terms - for breaking the no drinking rule.

 

Smoking has been banned on twenty Thai beaches including the long coastline in Hua Hin from November 1st.

 

A jail term of one year or a 100,000 baht fine has been mentioned for violators.

Eating is allowed.

Drinking is allowed, alcohol isn't.

same as USA. Everything on the beach in California is banned.

parking in some areas is 600 baht.

you can eat and drink non alcoholic beverages.

beaches closed after dark.

no swimming without lifeguard.

in Southern California beaches are patrolled after dark by police with FLIR night vision mounted on top of their vehicles to locate and arrest anyone on the beach.

 

same in many other states. exceptions are a few camp sites on beaches.

 

consuming alcohol anywhere in a public place in illegal.

I'm sure the tourists will be flocking to Thailand in waves. Not. I can't remember ever going on a holiday anywhere and not having a few beers at the beach. I hope this dunce gets sacked fairly speedily for this nonsense.

Returning to my home country after many years in Thailand I will become a potential tourist. Though I'm not quite sure whether I will want to spend my vacation time in a country where I'm not even allowed to choose what kind of drink I can enjoy on my beach chair. Cheers!

Less skin infections from the dog pooh on the sand and human pooh in the water cant be a bad thing.

Maybe all the laws are to prevent people from all the nasties on the beach/sewer?

I know this isn't every beach yet but that is what I predicted when they banned the sale of alcohol. The next stage would be a complete ban of alcohol. I am sure other beaches will soon follow.

 

I can't see this being enforced though. I go to a small beach south of Pattaya (Baan Ampur) and in the evenings there are hundreds of Thais sitting on the beach eating, drinking whiskey and smoking.

 

It isn't only tourists that will be hit but also locals enjoy a drink and a smoke on the beach.
