Filthy beaches driving all the tourists away in Rayong

Picture: Thai News Agency

 

TNA reported that a ten kilometer stretch of beach in Rayong was filthy and covered in trash.

 

They said that even though it was the weekend there were no tourists in sight.

 

They called the matter a crisis of severe proportions.

 

No sooner had the authorities cleared it up but more came.

 

The beaches featured were Suchada and Saeng Jan in Muang district of the eastern central Thai city.

The government needs to educate people and tackle the source of the garbage ...  Drains and canals are not tips, but the amount of trash that ends up in them is, (in Boris's words) Eye Popping.

i use to go fishing at Phra Khanong, the only thing i ever caught was plastic bags, just pathetic, every single person carries a plastic bag with their meals in them, what happens after, yep toss it in the river , floats out to sea and then returns to the beach

AND the smokers, but have neglected the most important issue.....

Just goes to show this whole smoking ban because of polluting beaches is complete and absolute nonsense from the underdeveloped brains of children.

The Thai public are pulled in 2 ways, do the right thing and dispose of trash properly or do the most convenient thing and just toss it. The latter usually wins.

 

The Thai public sector are pulled in 2 ways, do their job and spend the budget on ways to clean up the trash or do the more profitable thing and plunder the budget. The latter usually wins.

 

The first issue requires a cultural shift and enforcement of enviromental legislation and littering laws.

 

The second issue would require an enormous change in the way the bureaucracy works.

I live in the beautiful area of Khao Yai. I ride several KM each week, I force my self not to look down at the sides of the road, garbage everywhere.

Not to throw garbage on the ground takes a certain maturity level which many Thai's do not possess!

I hear you but I think we will have to wait until brain transplants become a common mainstream medical practice like getting a tooth filled before any of that will change.

I am waiting for the follow up to this story of some from some official blaming those pesky Chinese (their insinuations, not mine) tourists. The second they blame someone else this seems to absolve them of all responsibility. How can you fix something if you don’t believe you are the cause? A bit like a drug addict in denial about their habit.

A successful brain transplant assumes that you have a worthy donor to start with.  When is that going to happen?

Would have thought that most bureacrats or senior military officers brains would be perfect as donors. After all they are almost virtually unused, sort of "fresh out of the box"!

Thais treat there country as a garbage bin only education can solve this attitude but the authorities seem to be preoccupied with other things. Ask a local to please not litter and they take it as an insult. 

 

However it's obvious  that most of this garbage in the video above is from the local fishing boats that fill the sea at night with lighting in search of squid and shrimp. They throw all their garbage in the sea and in fact even oil change is done directly in the water. The winds changed to on-shore last week in rayong so of course the fishing boats litter and garbage that has not sunk to the bottom blows into shore very quickly as apposed to being blown out to sea and people become alarmed.
