A representative of the deckchair and umbrella vendors on one of Pattaya’s filthiest beaches has dismissed criticism of the trash saying it happens every year.
And he went further – he claimed that tourists really don’t mind and understand the situation.
The story on Sophon Cable TV’s Facebook page had no comments – people who normally comment in droves seemed to have been stunned into silence.
There were just dozens of shocked emoticons and other emojis crying
their eyes out in laughter.
Prawet Lamyaiwan was speaking to Sophon on Wong Amat beach. A couple of days ago the beach looked like the municipal trash dump. It has since been cleared up but many fear another wave of plastic bottles, old wood and other debris will be blown in on the next storm.
However Prawet was upbeat. He said business had not been affected at all. Most tourists completely understand and just put up with the unsightly trash, he remarked.
After all, he said, it was just something that always happened at this time of the year.
