In a word wow

The rough with the smooth

Must be very hard for this go through

Can imagine they have been getting away with just paying fines for years but it seems like they accept it as they seem to know they are wrong but things in Thailand can be complicated for everyone not only forangs

I hope no one has bought a beach villa for a few hundred mill

The gold chain the guy, on the right, is wearing, must have cost a bomb!

Seems, they did well up to now.

Short term pain, long term gain as the beach environment will heal and hopefully the clubs will reestablsh a bit inland, a smart business plan would be to deliver small portable tables and matts with a food and drink delivery and all removed when the meal and drinks are finished.

Its a shame... I can imagine getting rid of the tatty places, but some of those clubs are quite 'high life'. They also provide a nice place to sit in the shade and have a cold beer and a snack while watching the sea lap against the shore.

Why can't the local council just force them to pay high rents and drill the money back into the local economy and that will keep people their jobs and livelihoods.

Making the beach bigger, but much less tourists will go now that there won't be any amenities for them.

Stupid really.

Yes, when I watched that news video report I was amazed that the 'manager' of Catch22 stated that he paid rent to the owner, the guy next to him. How can anyone own bech land.

And he used the word 'local' so many times. Implying that these locals don't have to obey Thai law.

G'day Bruce

Jobs for the local people? No Bruce for people from Myanmar and elsewhere.

You have to smile at the aussie Tourist when he said "You can't sit on the beach in Australia in a club like this...." For sure they would never let this kind of encroachment onto public land happen in Australia in the first place....can't wait for then to start on Samui......
