40 years ago Samui was a magical,beautiful, isolated tropical paradise. Short term greed has killed the magic and now the plan is to take away even it's status as an island! The lunatics are running the asylum!

they certainly are.Samui has been spoilt with poor management,over development,and water quality in some areas is pretty poor,such a shame that thais in general just dont care about the environment they live in,

Where do you get your numbers from?
According to these numbers there would be more than 7.264 people a day ... it really seems to me that all arrivals are counted twice!

forget the numbers,for westerners, thailand is yesterday's playground,chinese and indians are the big re placers,problem is re the chinese everything is bought and paid for back in china,thais and thailand see very little of the money plus villa's and airbnb are taking a toll on general hotel occupancy leading to lay off's for thai staff....everything is changing too fast for the authorities.

yes they are mad...18 klm of madness.Samui's roads cant handle the local traffic.


The nice thing about all those loony ideas is, that they are not turned into reality. Some slightly over-budget feasibility studies for tens of millions of Baht later the whole thing will fizzle away into thin air 😉

Meanwhile, the air is highly polluted, there is no drinking water and the schools are a disaster.

 

All this to what?

 

Is not Samui adequately served by planes and passenger ferries? I for one hate the place. I don't care what they do or build.

Samui is a lot of things, but the air is NOT 'highly polluted'. If you want to learn what air pollution is, take a trip to Bangkok or Chiang Mai. Samui is a small island with a near constant prevailing breeze. Might be a bit of traffic pollution during rush hours in high season, but that is pretty much restricted to the area around the ring road, and neighbors burning their trash, but that's about it.

There are other things to spend money on that would far more benefit the country than a stupid bridge to nowhere - literally.

Between 2017 and 2019 around 350 patients a year had to be transferred using the daytime ferry. Others were transferred at night by speedboat but high waves often presented problems for this. 

 

They could easily cover that with a part time helicopter. Another great example of Thai (non) thinking
