Pongsri, 51, and Daojai, 48, were visiting Koh Sakorn in Trang. 

They expected a beautiful sunset and a clean beach.

They got polluted haze and a stretch of sand covered in trash. 

Pongsri said the island could be beautiful but the air pollution and the rubbish had left her disappointed. 

Daojai said that she wanted to recommend the potentially beautiful island to friends in her home of Phattalung – but something needed to be done about the air quality and the trash before she would do that. 

A three minute video showed some of their experiences.
