Hua Hin to crack down on massage shops for blocking beach

The Hua Hin municipality vowed on Tuesday to investigate and crack down on beach massage operators for encroaching on and blocking the popular beach in Prachuap Khiri Khan province.

 

Jirawat Prammanee, clerk of the municipality, said he ordered municipal officials to check on the operators after seeing posts from a Hua Hin resident showing the beach obstructed by massage beds.

 

Jirawat said the spot could be at Soi Hua Hin 77. He said if officials found the beach obstructed, they would order the owners to immediately clear the way.

 

Jirawat gave the order after a Hua Hin resident, whose Facebook account is Juckrit Chotphom, posted a photo in several Hua Hin Facebook groups.

 

The photo showed a worker of Meow Massage shop lining up massage beds in a formation that completely blocked the beach, leaving only the underwater portion open for tourists to walk past.

 

The photo also captured another massage shop that had done the same.

 

Juckrit said he took the photo at about 8am on Monday. He said he filed a complaint with the local office of the Internal Security Operations Command.

Ah, so they 'vowed to do their job' they're being paid for then. Until it's out of the public eye, then they'll let it slide again.

I have walked the beach from market village to the Hilton early mornings the last several days and it's very difficult to pass the chair operators. The tides are high in the mornings now and they place the chairs up to and in the water. To get past you have to wade out in the water between the incoming waves or weave your way between the chairs if you want to stay dry. Just not much room at high tide. It would be better if they could leave a little room to walk and add chairs as the tide recedes?

Why would they give you room to pass. 

They want you to use their facilities  🤑

Great Hua Hin, after the houses, hotels and restaurants built on the public land now it's the massage shops.
