    Thailand Bans smoking on tourist beaches.

    Thai authorities have announced that from November 2017, they will introduce a smoking ban on beaches in certain tourist areas, including in Koh Samui, Pattaya, Phuket, Prachuap Khiri Khan, Chon Buri and Songkhla provinces

    Chanthaburi's Laem Sing beach included in that list of smoke free beaches. Always see a team of beach cleaners there, sweeping up leaves and any rubbish, less cigarette butts is a bonus, good scheme

    The beaches are in the provinces of Phuket (Patong); Surat Thani (Bo Phut on Ko Samui); Krabi (Phra Ae and Khlong Dao on Ko Lanta); Chon Buri (Bang Saen and Pattaya as well as Tam Pang on Ko Si Chang); Prachuap Khiri Khan (Hua Hin and Khao Takiap); Phetchaburi (Cha-am); Phang-nga (Ko Khai Nok and Ko Khai Nai on Ko Yao); Songkhla (Chalatas); Pattani (Tha Wa Sukri); Rayong (Mae Phim); Chanthaburi (Laem Sing), and Chumphon (Sai Ri).

    Thailand’s Department of Marine And Coastal Resources says it has had to retrieve tens of thousands of butts from the sands of beaches, with this accounting for a large amount of all rubbish collected. A department official said up to 138,000 butts had been collected from just one particular beach – a 2.5 km stretch of Phuket’s popular Patong Beach.

    Normally I would think that was a made up number or at best a rough estimate .... but since TIT I would not be surprised if some little guy's job is beach butt counter ... 555

    I think its a great idea too...and smokers only have themselves to blame for the introduction of this law...however as a regular beach goer and cleaner-uperer I wish they would ban plastic bottles most of all...its the majority of what I pick up on the beach tide-lines

    Smokers... some of them are the most self centred inconsiderate fucks around.

    New Zealand is working towards a total ban on smoking. Good luck with that but it's a move in the right direction.

    Good on Thailand
