As I have posted before there is an exemption for Thai fishermen and those going about their work - it’s possible actions of Farang having drinking parties on the beach after the bars were closed have contributed to the reluctance of the authorities to open the beaches - I saw this for myself at Ao Nang the day after bars closed - they all thought there were very clever emptying the seven 11’s

I posted last night how half of Patong's population that is left were at the beach. At this moment I am sitting behind the ribbon at a beach while 13 Thai people are down on the beach. So they should be.... and so should I. I am getting more and more disillusioned about my beautiful Thailand every day.
