Although some of the people doing business along the sand, particularly beach lounger and umbrella renters, moved out yesterday, other more solid bar, food joints and massage salas remained this morning, but even they were being dismantled.

Walking with the soldiers was Patong Mayor Chalermluck Kebsap, who told The Phuket News yesterday, “We have wanted to do this for a long time,” she added, “but until now it was impossible. Now it can be done.”
