He claims he was angry that Mr Munaiyanti has assaulted his wife while she was taking a bath after they were drinking  after work. Prakart admitted to using the iron stick to hit Mr Munaiyanti. ”

Maya Bay’s extended closure “vital to conserve the ecology” | The Thaiger

Maya Bay’s extended closure keeps the wraps on one of southern Thailand’s most popular tourist attractions.

Worapot Lomlim, chief of the Hat Nopparat Thara Phi Phi Islands national park confirmed this week that he might keep Maya Bay closed for up to five years to allow the current recovery to continue.

The Department of National Park, Wildlife and Plant Conservation has agreed to extend the closure of Ao Maya, or Maya Bay, located on one of the Phi Phi islands between Krabi and Phuket, for another six month period after an initial 10 month closure to allow nature to regenerate the ecosystem.

The Chief reports that the local ecological systems of Maya Bay, degraded by years of accelerating tourist traffic, has steadily improved during the current closure. Up to 5,000 tourists a day were visiting Maya Bay at its peak before authorities weighed up the pressures of the conservationists and tour operators and decided it was best to close the popular tourist attraction for an extended period

He cited the frequent sightings of blacktip reef sharks near the beach and the gradual growth of some 23,000 corals farmed at a coral centre in Trang province, which were planted in the Bay with the help of volunteer divers.

After the next six-month extended closure, Khon Worapot indicated that the department will consider extending the closure for an even longer period, up to 4-5 years, to allow full rehabilitation of the environment and the ecological system.

Maya Bay was closed to all tourist access on June 1, 2018.

Fake 500 baht banknote found in Krabi store | The Thaiger

A fake 500 baht banknote has been discovered at a convenience store in Krabi.

Police headed to the store in Mueang Krabi District after they were notified of the dodgy 500 baht note.

43 year old Maimunoh Somsa, the store manager, was waiting for police with the item in question – a very good copy of a 500 baht Thai banknote.

The manager told police that at about noon on Wednesday there was a woman buying cigarettes and a lighter for 72 baht. She handed over the 500 baht banknote. The staffer didn’t realise at that time that it was a fake. It was later discovered long after the woman had made her purchase.

Police are continuing their investigations to find the suspect and track down the source of the fake note.
