The Royal Thai Navy Third Area Command reported to press this afternoon that Sirinath National Park officials together with Thalang District Deputy Chief Danai Jaikeng, Sakoo Tambon Administration Office (OrBorTor) officials and members of the Royal Thai Navy together demolished 29 business set up along Nai Thon Beach.

Kittipat Tharapiban, Chief of Sirinath National Park, told The Phuket News, “More than 60 officials have been involved in an operation this morning to remove illegal businesses set up along Nai Thon beach road.

“Vendors gave us no problems when we removed their businesses and nobody complained,” he said.

“Some of the owners of the businesses even removed their structures themselves. Now there are no more businesses in operation in the area,” he added.

When asked why the businesses had been removed, Mr Kitiphat said, “I don’t know the reason, I was just asked to join the Royal Thai Navy in the operation.”

Just a follow up to this, I was at Nai Thon today, and most of the vendors are right back exactly where there were...hardly any noticeable difference.  What a complete farce, not to mention very unfair to the merchants that are paying for proper businesses along the roadway.  More proof that Thais cannot follow rules, nor enforce them.

" As long as a tap keeps running you never get your floor dry".
Same with vendors, because there is no continue enforcement policy at beaches, of course they creep back al the time.
Very logic, very thai.

I saw this today, and it looks nicer.  As is happening at ALL beaches, the illegal venders continually slither back to their old haunts...starting with carts, then gradually adding to it until it becaomes just like it was before the Navy took it down last time.  And I like the part that say "Some of the owners of the businesses even removed their structures themselves."  Of course they did... so they can keep all their supplies for the gradual rebuilding of their illegal businesses...because they can't help themselves, as they are addicted to illegal business and cannot follow laws.  I can only hope that the Navy is just starting at Naithon, and that they plan on working their way down the coast.  They will have their work cut out for themselves by the time they get to Surin and Kamala, both of which have been growing with illegal businesses every single day, with Kamala looking almost just like "the good old days".

They must be proud of there job i am sure but as I read the article they didn't know why they where doing it,unbelievable
When asked why the businesses had been removed, Mr Kitiphat said, “I don’t know the reason, I was just asked to join the Royal Thai Navy in the operation.”  And I pay taxes to pay these guys there salary every month hardly to believe such an answers.When all tourists will be gone we will not need all these people anymore and i hope they will loose there job!
