First there was a beach on Koh Phi Phi, then a dirty canal in Bang Tao, Phuket. Now, the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources (DMCR) has cleared up rubbish on an island beach off Pattaya beaches in Chon Buri.

 

Photos were posted in the ‘Pattaya Watchdog’ Facebook page on May 14 with a message reading, “Some business operators have dumped this rubbish on the beach.”

 

The DMCR yesterday reported that they had inspected Tawaen beach and Thonglang beach on Koh Lan off the coast of Pattaya in Chon Buri after photos of rubbish went viral in social media complaining that rubbish had been dumped on the beaches.

People should boycott the island all together until something positive is done about the proliferating environmental disaster

People should boycott Thailand; why single out a couple of beaches?  You cannot drive five kilometres here without passing piles of refuse illegally dumped.

I have noticed if one wants reaction from local city governments or Thai government officials- post a photo on social media. Netizens seem to react more on social websites than face to face with government officials. Posting the “truth” with photos seems to get quick results.

Looks more like they just covered it up.

Why are things ONLY done here after social media catches on?  Cities should be proactive in cleaning up, garbage removal, noise pollution, dangerous motorbike riders, fixing roads and sidewalks, traffic, etc.

Verbally accuse a Thai official & you could be in hot water... deformation law works well in Thai favour...

however post real photo's on-line & the evidence is clear & indisputable for all to see..

shaming them is the only way to get something done... face to face confrontation gets you a one way ticket!
