PHUKET: The proliferation of jet-skis and trailers on Patong Beach directly contradicting an order enforced by Royal Thai Army soldiers in Phuket is allowed, Patong Municipality has confirmed.

 

Jet-ski operators now occupy areas at both the northern and southern ends of Patong Beach – one area in front of the Prachanukroh Rd intersection at the southern end and another area near Loma Circle at the northern end – making the areas off limits to tourists.

 

Patong Mayor Chalermluck Kebsup says that the jet-ski operators are occupying the sands with Patong Municipality’s permission in order to reduce traffic delays throughout the town.

Are there still people who rent these pesky things in thailand? Wow that's amazing!

 

Good that we know where they are so we can avoid those beaches.

There must be a lot of traffic congestion at 7.00 am in the morning when every one is asleep, who’s paying the backhander.

I,d say almost every reply from folk who have no clue and certainly not from Phuket! How much is a chair for the day? Now that’s serious stuff right there!

Nobody wants them..

its polluting and dangerous for swimmers. also it’s crooks who doing that business..

If they can ban umbrellas chairs  sigaretes  foods and drinks on a beach then why keep these annoying jet skies?
