Thai news media reported that worried tourism operators were putting on a brave face as the phenomenon known as plankton bloom moved from Pattaya itself to the outlying island of Koh Larn.
They quoted a tourism operator who said he hoped that it wouldn’t last long as it was tough times at the moment and they could do without plankton causing more trouble.
The unnamed operator claimed it was a yearly event that didn’t usually last long. It happened at the start of the rainy season usually, he said.
He claimed the phenomenon – known as whale pooh in Thai – can cause skin problems to those susceptible to such things.
Tnews reported that most of the Chinese in the area were not risking a dip in the green sea – and things were decidedly quiet.
