The area of Koh Nork east of Koh Yao in Phangnga used to be a great spot for peace and quiet, snorkeling and sight seeing. Some people stayed over. 

But since the jet ski gangs moved in that is changing and locals are finding that the tourists don’t want to return. 

Badin, a guide told Sanook that dozens of jet skis arrive at a time and race around the area – and the problem is getting worse and worse. 

Locals are calling on the authorities to investigate. They believe that the jet skis have no right to be there and are damaging the environment as well as the livelihoods of tour operators and tourist businesses.
