Phuket: Patong most beautiful in years - but no one there to enjoy it

A post on the fanpage of "A Day to Chill" reported that Patong Beach in Phuket was more beautiful than it has been for years.

 

But there was virtually no one there to enjoy it. 

 

There was crystal clear water, clear blue skies and perfect weather with a cool breeze.

Netizens agreed with the assessment noting that with hotels being shut there was no pollution going into the water and the pandemic has meant the recovery of nature. 

 

Daily News stated the obvious that Phuket is presently not being visited by either domestic or foreign tourists.

It doesn't work that way, unfortunately. A small numbers of tourists does very little to help the struggling businesses. With a place like Patong, in fact all Phuket's West Coast resorts, it's feast or famine. And therein lies the problem.

There is of course that problem, however, is it worth destroying the environment for mass tourism?
There are major consequences on each side of the argument.
The only way forward is  to look at alternative solutions that benefit both the locals and the environment

Weird that hotels can pollute the seawater in that case keep them closed.
