So you open the beaches and when people go there the authorities freak out. I have no problem being reminded of the rules, but it is a bit much when you are essentially threatened. Given so many of the other places to go remain closed, the beach is about the one place left that people can go, but with the cops in a power frenzy, get ready for stories of sad and stupid arrests and fines, especially one suspects for farang.

 

They "freak out" because tourism is a huge source of revenue for the country. Chonburi included. So anything that happens here can have repercussions for the whole country.

There is no power frenzy, only an understanding of how willing people are to flout the rules unless there is a real threat to their pocket or liberty.

You know this, so I have no idea as to why you would make such a post.

 

I haven't had a policeman, police volunteer nor anyone from the local government even look at me sideways during this whole crisis.

 

It's only the people who flaunt the rules who complain.

they will have to learn that tourists have the power to go somewhere else

Wrong. 

You don't have a grasp of the situation. The closest beaches to Bangkok will always by popular, in order to escape the city.

Where else do you think they will go?

Good to see that the shutdown has not stopped stupidness.

I agree with you but won't be going to the beach if I have to wear a face mask the whole time. A nonsense. If tourists do return, I doubt that they would be very happy either.

 

I understand the government's concern about the virus returning, but sometimes they go too far. Went to my regular local restaurant yesterday with my son which has just reopened. We had to sit diagonally from each other with a plastic screen down the middle of the table. Pointless and an unpleasant dining experience. If my wife had gone with us, one of us would have had to sit at a different table. Won't be going back again until the screens go.

 

Some of the measures the government are taking, do nothing to prevent the transmission of the virus but are hobbling businesses that are trying to reopen. A nearby and much larger restaurant hasn't even bothered to reopen.

I don't understand why they care so much about the beach. When the sun goes down there are every night the same public locations where many people sit close together drinking alcohol and not wearing masks and nobody seems to care.

This warning is directed at Thais since there are no tourists and the odd expat will know the rules. I see nothing wrong with it as we know Thais are above the law and will misbehave  so occasionally they are treated like children

So you are worried about the business, but you refuse to support it under the conditions you claim that the government is imposing?

Was yesterday in a restaurant at the Darkside of Pattaya.

4 "important' people arrived, I write "important' because, not only they drove big Mercedes, but the staff rush to open the door, and the lady owner welcomed them formally.

She than quickly remove the keep distancing signs on a table, so they could sit with 4 at one table.

The governmental imposing conditions are clearly not for everyone.

In fact those people may be government  management staff.
