Phuket’s Governor has given an urgent order to solve the problem of wastewater flowing into Bang Tao Beach yesterday after the issue went viral in social media.

 

If you suddenly having a sense of deja vu and are SURE you’ve read this before, that’s because the issue has been brought up hundreds of time in the past decades with nothing being done to address the shameful situation.

Here’s what usually happens…

 

Social media posting or local complaint made about the black water flowing into Phuket’s west coast beaches along any of many canals flowing into the Andaman Sea.

Keep it up social media! It seems that cyber exposure is the only way to get any attention at all to many issues. Even at that, the attention in many cases is short lived.

OK, so the governor gives out the order to clean up the filthy beaches in Phuket because it popped up on social media. If it hadn't then nothing would happen and in all likelihood nothing will be done anyway except temporary bandaid treatment.

These Thai  officials,  army and police are the most corrupt in the world.Plenty of money to fix things but it all goes into corrupt pockets and off abroad to invest in real opportunities not the crap they pass off here to budget tourists.

How much do the Thai governors of all these tourist hovels make a year?

Maybe as much as Big Joke made before being busted.

My guess 500 million baht for each individual but probably a lot  more.

There is a decline of Westerners visiting Phuket due to various reasons including mass tourism , litter along the beaches and decaying infrastructure. —But no fear, Chinese and Indians that have worse beaches back home will continue to flock to Thailand along with Russians since it is easier for them to get a tourist visa into Thailand.

Many Europeans have already made a bee-line for other destinations already (good for them). Why you would come to a smelly and turd infested Island is beyond me.

Its only a real problem if you can clearly see it or smell it.

 

once the rains come stronger, its problem solved.

Why don’t the media report on this issue every day until heads roll or the problem is solved instead of once in a while when news is slack.
