Governor Chockchai Dejamornthan announced on the sterling achievements at a certificate-giving ceremony at Phuket Provincial Hall on Tuesday (Feb 28). Also present to dish out the awards was Phuket Public Health Chief Dr Jirapan Taepan.

The winners were Patong Municipality, Wichit Municipality and the “Sino” Shell petrol station in Thalang.

“The government policy has ordered a clean-toilet campaign for all government offices and tourism areas in order to solve the problem of dirty toilets and not enough toilets,” said Dr Jiraphan, Phuket’s leading health official.

“The Phuket Provincial Public Health sees the importance of people’s health and maintaining hygiene. We have three objectives to develop toilets: Healthy, Accessibility and Safety – H.A.S.,” he added.
The PPHO selected the 20 “best toilets” and submitted in the awards for Health Region 11, which covers the Upper Southern Thailand region of Chumphon, Surat Thani, Nakhon Sri Thammarat, Phuket, Phang Nga, Krabi, and Ranong provinces, Dr Jiraphan explained.

Patong Municipality won first prize for the Best Government Toilet at its offices on Ratchapatanusorn Rd, Wichit Municipality won Best Public Park Toilet for the facilities at the Elderly Relaxing Centre at Wichit Public Park, and the “Sino” Shell petrol station in Mai Khao placed second for Best Gas Station Toilet.

@ ozimandious. I join you!
Please, can I be directed to government public toilet and shower facilities at Naiharn Beach?
There are 2 public shower stands built many years ago ( With a approved budget for Rawai Orbor Tor), but never connected to water piping system supply.
It are still just 'dry towers'!

No working government Naiharn Beach showers/toilets.

There was a enormous budget for a film museum, a thing the local people opposed.
Why not a little government budget for toilets and make the shower stands working at Naiharn Beach?

Petrol stations shouldn't be applauded for having toilets, it's part of their basic market offering. You might as well hand them a trophy for selling petrol. It's why people go there.

Also they're not really "public" since they're run by private organisations on private land.

If the local government want people to think they care about public toilets why don't they actually provide some? Maybe in public places where members of the public actually go?

Because appearance trumps substance in the land of smiles. :)

Strange, they're so concerned with public health yet do nothing about the real problem, dangerous driving which kills hundreds every year in Phuket!

They didn't mention the condition of all the toilets facilities located on the public beaches. Oh wait. There aren't any! If you gotta go, trot down the nearest gas station or government office...Pathetic really.
