Samui Merchants Give Up on Govt, Repair Own Road

Tired of waiting for the authorities to repair a small chasm in their road, a group of merchants on Koh Samui on Monday took matters into their own hands.

Samui folk fix the roadLocated at a three-way junction near Chaweng beach, the 50-centimeter by 1-meter hole has caused many road accidents for local residents and tourists, which spurred local merchants to finally do it themselves.

“Many accidents happened here. I’ve seen many tourists injured from this, and I felt bad for them,” said Samran Lungkum, a 52-year-old souvenir merchant. “So I and other merchants living nearby spent 400 baht on asphalt.”

It’s money well-spent, she said.

“If we don’t have tourists, we won’t be able to make a living,” Samran said. “I’m happy that there won’t be any road accidents here anymore.”
