Vice Governor Chokdee informs a beach vendor about the beach rules and regulations.

After visiting Kamala beach on Thursday (Mar 10), V/Gov Chokdee said that during his visit he re-informed vendors of the beach rules and regulations and stressed that they must follow the Phuket Beach Model guidelines and only trade within the designated zones.

“Kamala Beach has not yet had its 10 per cent zone marked out, but officials are going to mark out the zone soon. They will also put up new signs along the beach stating what the rules and regulations are. If these are not followed, the beach will be declared a natural or virgin beach.

“The start of our ‘One Beach, One Rule, One Map and One Organisation’ beach model started with us setting out the beach rules and regulations, guidelines and procedures, we are now entering the final phase of the model which will see the introduction of Beach Watch Associations,” he said.

“Each Beach Watch Associations will put signs in four languages: Thai, Chinese, English and Russian close to the 10 per cent zones and it will be their responsibility to inform beach goers about the rules and enforce them,” he added.

However, V/Gov Chokdee added that all departments including the Land Transport Office, Hotel Association and Professional Guide Association will all be responsible for helping to promote the beach rules.

Oh...back to beach rules again...hasn't been much about it lately.  I thought it was just forgotten with everything back to normal...as many people have mentioned Surin is a good example of same same. The police goofballs have cleared the place on occasion...and within hours, the lowlife beach rats scurry back into place.  The only solution is to have a full time military foot patrol...all day, every day.

... Sam hayman,.. Than according the warning of V/Gov for Kamala Beach,  the V/Gov can sett an example and declare Surin Beach tomorrow "Virgin Beach".

But sure that will not happen, hahaha

Always "big words", nice verbal performance for the press, but no actions.

It is funny how Phuket provincial authorities always undermine their own authority by not acting as they do 'warn'.
Just words-words-words, followed by many warnings, and than the whole issue drops off the desk.

Hey Gov-  Promoting beach rules does nothing.  Enforcement of rules does something.  Threatening to turn Kamala into a virgin beach will work about as well as the jet-ski infested, umbrella covered, and vendor wandering happening on at the current "Virgin" beach of Surin

80% of the beach is now covered with umbrellas and mats at Surin beach.

Wondering why it is Kamala Beach where the 10% zone is not yet marked out.
Is it because the Kamala Beach vendors are well known for "listening to provincial authorities and than forget all about it" ?

Than the V/Gov can safe his breath and energy and declare Kamala beach already now a 'virgin beach'.

The family and friends ties between Kamala local authorities and Kamala vendors are so closed that the 10% zone will be not realized
Perhaps just for a few days, hahahaha.
Kamala rules Kamala Beach. 
That always was and always will be.

So far Provincial authorities, since more then 1.5 years, have no grip on all the Phuket beaches.
All the time just 'soon talks'. 

Local authorities and their friend-vendors/ jet ski operators 'rule the beaches'.

On Phuket island money is a very 'strong authority'.

Same counts about the Mayor and his office officials of karon/kata, charged 2 years ago for quite a number of 'wrong' doings, but they are still freely running karon/kata.
They so far never saw the court room inside.

Phuket Island has many self sufficient beach agglomerations.
Operating legal and illegal according thai laws.
But again, lack of thai law enforcement.

Result is that not much is under provincial control.
