plans for management of tourists

Like: We want a lot and we want that they all pay a lot.

And we don't care about the environment until it's so bad that the internet is full of complaints.

Well I for one am surprised but happy that possibly longer term sustainability appears to have won out over short term greed which does not appear to happen very often here. 

 

One could hope it may be a spark for the future - all be it I am not holding my breath.

 

Time will tell :thumbsup:

Did you not read the article?  It said it will be closed for another two years.  So how is that "wanting a lot and wanting them to pay a lot"?  They.  Have.  Extended.  The.  Closure.  For.  Another.  Two.  Years.

Some people just need to pop up and bash on every single thread.  Jus waiting for the first brown envelope and TM 30 comment then this thread will be complete and we can all move on to bash again on the next one.

And exactly how many places in Thailand are closed like that beach and how many places are already totally ruined and/or the locals do their best to sell it out until it's ruined?

When I was first in Thailand in 1994 I remember they had the rule for Phi Phi island that there should be no hotels or restaurants, just day trip tourists. Yeah, that was a long time ago and look how it looks now. Could anybody predict that? Yes, of course!

Seems like you are not a fan of the Thais. Might be worth moving on.

Sweeping statement on all of Thai Tourism.

 

So much 'hating going on'.

 

Good luck with the move home.

It would be nice to think this action indicates that better long-term management of Thailand's marine resources will become a norm instead of an exception implemented only when the situation gets to an extreme. 

 

Unfortunately, I'm not even confident that they'll be successful in keeping greedy business people from creeping back to this location (with the assistance of brown envelopes) within a year and destroy even more beauty.

Local boatmen are still bringing people around through the back. They just can’t go in through the front which is the main bay.

Good luck living in a polluted country full of people hell bent on destroying what’s left of it.

 

The smart ones are moving on. The desperate ones are staying.
