Five foreigners spend their holidays cleaning up rubbish along Krabi Beach

Didn't take you long to come up with that old chestnut did it?

 

But what a good advertising opportunity for TAT "For that holiday with a difference - come to Krabi for the golden opportunity of doing some work for the community, and you won't even have to declare any income!"

There has to be thousands of westerners staying in Thailand, just imagine for a minute that they all inundated the beaches in swarms of thousands to clean it up, it would be worldwide news, and perhaps incite the locals to follow suit.

The most dubious words in the above post are "imagine" and  "perhaps"!

I do this every week on the beaches here in Pattaya, it's a part of my weekly exercise .

The locals stares at me and pointing . I couldn't care less what they are thinking, just trying to show them what they should have been doing. 

 

"The locals stares at me and pointing" Now there's a surprise, and I could have a wild guess as to what they are thinking, but I think you know that already! 

 

You could try to convince them that farangs have been looking after the place that they call home for years, and it improves your  brain power to such an extent that it gives rise to wonderful inventions like the wheel and the car and the telephone, but I wouldn't count on it!

Its interesting. 

My thai partner pointed out that most of the people who work the garbage trucks are Cambodian. 

Below the Thais list to pick up rubbish.

I always suspected maybe the Thais felt they were above "picking up the trash of foreigners" or any for that matter?

We always take a plastic bag to Jomtien beach and bring our bit of rubbish home. 

(Seems to be a shortage of bins at Dongtan beach... Oh, there's parking ticket people now,  but no bins..  that's right, you have to pay to park there now).

Back in the 90s when Chaweng was actually a nice beach ( before it became all concrete and ruined ) I went for a long walk every day while there on holiday and picked up rubbish as I went. Dumped it in a pit I dug in the sand and on my last day set it alight and enjoyed the fire.

Somewhat spoiled for me when a Thai guy working in a scuba shop claimed that the 4 litre oil container I collected had been dumped by farangs!

Would have made no difference at all in the long run as no one else ever picked up rubbish, but I did my good deed for the day.

Now I know who to blame for all the air pollution.... Burning garbage, burning oil canisters.... See a doctor, it's urgent 😈

Come to Thailand and pick up our trash on your vacation.  I didn't see that on the travel brousurs.  Talking about losing face. Thais laughing at silly farang doing a job that is beneath them.

Its good to see that there are well intentioned people on the Planet, but such a shame these people came to LOS, for a holiday and were compelled to clear all the trash off the beach.

Does Thailand have no shame ?

Waste of time unless the locals do it instead.

Locals = all over entire S.E. Asuia up to China.... and   environment ? A NON-combination.

My son worked as assistent GM at a quite posh hotel at Koh Samui. Tried to teach the "natives" employed by the hotel to clean up the glass pieces at their beach. IMPOSSIBLE. Better let a guest step in it.
