What’s In It?

As the tourism increases, an estimated figure of 37.5 million tourists seen in 2018, according to The Ministry of Tourism and Sports, Thailand has come up with a prohibition of fishing, fish feeding, anchoring on coral reefs, walking on the seabeds and any construction work on the beaches.

The beaches affected by this ban are Koh Samui, Koh Tao and Koh Phangan which are also the beaches where the famous full moon parties are held.

Keeping the future in mind, the concerned authorities in Thailand have taken such a action by looking at the amount of wastage and garbage seen on these beaches. A fine of 100,000 baht (₹) and up to a year in jail will be charged against anyone who breaks the law.

This will all fall into place in the month of July and will be carried forward.
