Yeah, there's definitely a missing ingredient here.  But in all fairness, my country was like that in a lot of places 40 years ago.  Trash dumps along side of roads and in stands of trees just out of sight from the road, and some major cities were absolute shit holes.  Took time, government campaigns and enforcement, and slowly seeped into the collective conscious in following generations.   These days, if someone tossed a used drink container out their car window at a red traffic signal no doubt someone nearby would call them on it, possibly more than 1.  It's just not acceptable behavior anymore. 

 

The area I have to pass through to get home here is disgusting.  All sorts of trash along side the roads, packs of soi dogs lingering around, roads are absolute shit.  It's an eye sore. 

 

There was a bunch of broken glass right in the middle of my soi for 2 days.  I noticed it just as I crunched though it riding my pushbike yesterday 🤬.  The people living in the house right where it was (renters) didn't care.  Last night during walk/exercise, I took a big broom and swept it off the roadway.  People were watching me from inside houses and patios.  Good!

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 ?

 

Nope!

Remember the Tsunami volunteers ?

Yes, also something we are constantly reminded of whenever someone makes a post about "working for free"

Why ? You do know that as a foreigner you need a work permit to legaly work in Thailand ? the fact that sometimes a "blind eye is turned" is neither here nor there. 

Work is defined as expending energy either physical or mental whether paid for or not...its a catch all definition..lots have been caught out by it.

No thanks....no work permit no work...its quite simple...why risk arrest and possible deportation ?...like I said before the fact that "a blind eye" is often turned for others doesn't help when you are in the monkey house.

Its not so boring when you have to find 70,000 baht "right now" or you're in the "monkey house" for the weekend !!

If you think the beaches are trashy take a look at the front yards of Thai houses. Inside looks worse than outside. Not sure why they have no pride in their property. The village compound next door to me is like a slum.

Their activities could be interpreted as bringing the image of Thailand into disrepute.
