A concert entitled “Samet in Love 8” planned for Sai Kaew beach on the island has been ordered cancelled because it would be “inappropriate”.
Despite tickets having already been sold for the eighth edition of the event the organizers have been told by the National Parks’ Commission that it must be cancelled this year out of respect for the departed King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
The commission said that they did not disagree in principal with holding the event on the island but it would not be appropriate this year, reported Thai Rath.

Meanwhile in other national park news, a contingent of officers 300 strong were out in force in western Kanchanaburi province yesterday serving notice on 35 hotels and resorts that must be pulled down due to encroachment.
The properties – 31 owned by Thais and four by foreign investors – are mostly in Thong Pha Phoom and Sangkhaburi districts.
The raiding party split up into five groups to serve the notices of encroachment on forest and national park land.
