The chief of the Had Nopparat Thara - Koh Phi Phi National Park has revealed that plans for a new jetty and walkway have been approved for the area of Loh Samah Bay and Maya Bay in Krabi. 

 

Environmental impacts have been conducted,budgets have been approved and contractors assigned. Materials are being sourced.

 

Six million baht is being spent on a jetty in Loh Samah Bay. 

 

Twelve million baht will be spent on a new walkway that will mean tourists will not step on Maya Bay beach. 

 

Woraphot Lormlim said that tourists will be limited to 300/400 at a time and 2,000 a day. 

 

Currently Maya Bay remains closed after damage due to over-tourism. 

 

A video posted on Facebook by Go Eco Phuket showed what the jetty would look like and the area where the walkway would be constructed.

On those prices it will be 22.5 days to recoup the 18 million baht now wonder they are keen to rush it through.

Yeah, it's a shame. Been there 20 years ago, really nice. 

 

Then back 5 years ago, a night mare.

 

Now a man made structure ... game over.

 

People just can't stop destroying nature for profit. Very sad.

 

That's the Thai way, find something beautiful and destroy it.

Sadly most of the "attractions" in Thailand have been spoiled and trampled, there's not much left they haven't destroyed. ☹️

Leave May bay alone, go and spend the money on the schools or hospitals where it's needed
