New beach prohibitions affects tourists in Thailand's Phuket

New beach prohibitions affects tourists in Thailand's Phuket
First sunbeds were prohibited. Now the local government in Phuket also prohibits tourists to bring their own chairs, and smoking and eating at the city's beaches.

The governor of Phuket, Nisit Jansomwong, today held a press conference in which he clarified the rules around the new "sunbed ban", which means that all forms of sunbeds - and chairs are prohibited on beaches in Phuket, reports the online newspaper Phuket Gazzette.

It also applies to chairs that tourists brings themselves.

Now only towels and mats are permitted if you want to enjoy a day on the beach in one of Thailand's most famous tourist areas.

You can still bring an umbrella, but you must stay within a limited area, about ten percent of the beach's area, according to the online newspaper for tourist news, Phuket Wan.

According Phuket Gazzette, it is also forbidden to eat and smoke if you are on the beaches of Phuket.

- Although smoking and eating are prohibited, people are still allowed to drink on the beach, said Governor of Phuket, Nisit Jansomwong to the newspaper.

The idea behind the strict regulation is, according Phuket Wan, to get rid of commercialization, in terms of rental of sunbeds and such, and to keep the tourists.

Nisit Jansomwong says that the idea is only an experiment to see what works, and it can quickly be replaced by another experiment.

Currently, the new prohibitions has faced widespread protests among tourists, so it may indicate that they are not interested in taking part in such experiments. Among other things, the Facebook page P News Phuket posted photos and videos of tourists who are protesting the ban to the police.
