Hua Hin beach: Authorities change tack - vendors will be allowed to charge for deckchairs

The authorities in Hua Hin have said that a new agreement will be signed with beach vendors at the resort. 

 

The news follows a high profile case where a woman and her family complained they were ripped off for food on the beach after being told they could sit down on loungers for free. 

 

New proposals are now on the table as the authorities plan to scrap an old agreement signed between them and the vendors.

 

Vendors will in future be able to charge 40-50 baht for people to sit down but they will not be able to force anyone to order food or drink. 

 

Clear prices for the latter must also be displayed. 

 

A meeting will be held before Songkran when a new memorandum of understanding will be signed. 

 

Daily News said that the authorities were circling the wagons after Aree Numjaroen, 67, was criticized in a Facebook post for ripping off a family of eight persons who had to pay 2,300 baht for food and drink after being told they could sit for free. 

 

This arrangement with the vendors is clearly not working and is causing trouble, they reported. 

 

Jirawat Phramanee said that in future the beach vendors will be allowed to charge for seating but can't force patrons to order food and drink. 

 

A local official had been in touch with the Facebook woman who complained and she does not want to take the matter further. 

 

But after Aree or "Aunty Kaew" of Pa Kaew Seafood filed a report with the police the local cops have said that they want to meet both sides to iron out differences.

seven Thai men versus one Thai woman just in case they need to arrest her. SWAT team is just out of frame.

The woman is a local government official.

 

One of the enforcement team.

 

See shoulder braids and row of ribbons on her paramilitary "civil" service uniform.

 

Military are "watchful" of guys on left.

The police were going around Hua Hin restaurants operated inside privately owned / rented buildings yesterday informing owners that they are looking at all restaurants in Hua Hin because of this incident.

 

It's not clear what they were looking for but I think it was readily available signs of pricing.

 

There is a big difference between allowing someone to sit inside a privately owned building and on public land on the beach.
