What a tip! More beach trash in Pattaya as hoteliers slam council | Samui Times

Manager reported that Wong Amat beach in Pattaya was like a refuse dump yesterday.

And the hoteliers were as mad as hell after calls to the local authority to help clear up the mess went unanswered.

A ton of plastic bottles and other debris had blown in off the sea and was covering a three kilometer stretch.

Tourists were trying to do a spot of sunbathing and putting a brave face on what had become of their holiday destination.

One unnamed hotelier said that it happens every September and October but they had never seen it as bad as this.

Calls to the local authority to help were ignored, they said, with hotels using their own staff to mount a clean up of the trash.

Without themselves taking responsibility their business would be ruined, they said.
