The award will be given at the 39th Asean Tourism Forum (ATF 2020) to be held in Brunei in January, reported state news agency NNT. (See story here.)

The announcement follows an inspection tour by the Asean Clean Tourism Standard Assessment Committee earlier this year, noted the report.

Phuket Town was assessed on seven criteria:

  • Environmental management
  • Cleanliness
  • Waste Management
  • Awareness-Building about Environmental Protection and Cleanliness
  • Green Space
  • Health Safety, Urban Safety, and Security
  • Tourism Infrastructure and Facilities.

Also to receive the “Asean Clean Tourist City Standard” are Saensuk Town in Chonburi and Trang Town in Trang Province. This is the second consecutive year that Trang Town has received the award, the NNT report noted.

Among the comprehensive list of criteria assessed in awarding the standard are key factors such as urban planning, environmentally friendly transport, pollution, crime rates, public safety and handling of liquid waste disposal. (See full list here.)

Of note, Asean cities that get at least 60% of total scores will be awarded the Asean Clean Tourist City Label, confirms the official Asean documentation explaining the award.

The award-winning cities shall receive the certificate of appreciation and a plaque with the Asean Clean Tourist City Label. The award is valid for three years, it adds.

Of course, all this is just tourist luring. Nothing more, nothing less. ( we scrub each other's back). Just read now in PN that some Phuket town roads have to be 'renewed' prior a simple Vegetarian Festival. Is that not telling enough? Not talking about the groundwater pollution around Phuket town incinerators by mountains of  rubbish or what ever you can call it.
