The video of Facebook user Aziz Yotharak, who uploaded a post of a tourist being asked to move from the ‘private’ beach in front of Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket, has gone viral whilst the resort denies that they ordered the staff to chase the tourist and his children off the beach.

The video shows the tourist with two children sitting on a mat on the beach in front of Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket, being asked from the staff of the resort to move out as the space is ‘private property’. The tourist also comments on the video that the beach ‘cannot possibly belong to a hotel’.

Meanwhile, Ma-Ann Samran, President of the Cherngtalay OrBorTor, has commented on the matter saying that he went to discuss the matter with hotel management.

“The staff said that the General Manager only ordered the staff at the scene to inform the tourist that if he wants to use the facility of the resort such as swimming pool he has to buy the day-pass voucher, but denied to have ordered the tourist to move away from the beach. However, the staff didn’t forced the tourist away, as it creates a bad tourism image for Phuket,” said Ma-Ann.

“However, after checking thoroughly, the beach that appears to be public land, is covered in the resort’s land deed all the way to the sea. I have reported this matter to the Governor as it is a case study. The beach areas are the responsibility of the Marine Office. Just like me, everyone believes this is public land.”

“There are many spots in Cherngtalay that have the same issue. The departments involved need to find a solution that will ensure that people and businesses share the beach together.”

Krabi: Chinese tourist drowns at Railay Bay

After all the heavy monsoonal weather along our coasts in recent days, we’re lucky we haven’t had more reports of risky swimmers getting into difficulty. Sadly, Krabi has reported a drowning.

Thai Rath reports that a 32 year old Chinese tourist staying in the Railay Beach area drowned after ignoring officials’ warnings not to go into the water. The report says that the tourist had gone to Phranang beach where beach patrollers told him not to enter the water due to the high seas. He said he wouldn’t and was just taking photos. Later he ventured into the waters without a life jacket where he quickly got into difficulty.

Fellow tourists, climbing groups, Park officials and staff from the First Standard Clinic in Ao Nang were all involved recovering Ma Xuxa from the waters at Phrasing Beach. Once he was back on shore CPR was applied in an effort to resuscitate him.

He was subsequently transferred by boat and ambulance to the Krabi Hospital. Medics continued to apply CPR during the journey but the man was pronounced dead upon arrival at hospital.

The Chinese Consulate has been advised of the incident.
