Thailand’s nationwide beach clean-ups continue into the New Year with Pattaya and Jomtien receiving a new zoning regulation to reduce space for beach chairs and umbrellas and offer larger space for more fun under the sun for holidaymakers.

Ms. Suladda Sarutilavan, Director of the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) Pattaya Office said, “The new zoning policy is being enforced under the Provincial Regulation with the objective of providing more public space on the beach and improving the experience of travellers. Tourists can choose to relax on wide stretches of empty sand or seek out deckchairs and umbrellas in the designated areas.”

Under the new zoning regulation, Pattaya and Jomtien Beaches are now offering 10 metres of public space or empty sand every 100-metre-wide beach-chair zone with each vendor concession separated from another by one metre.

The 2.9-kilometre stretch of Pattaya Beach is now offering public space of 1.75 kilometres or 60 per cent of the total area. At Jomtien Beach, its 5.9-kilometre stretch is now offering public space of 3.4 kilometres or about 58 per cent of the total area. The remaining areas at both beaches are for deckchair and umbrella rentals.

In addition, authorities have declared Wednesday as the day-off for beach vendors who are operating business on the Pattaya and Jomtien Beaches to allow more public space for both the local people and holidaymakers.

Prior to Pattaya and Jomtien, similar clean-ups and zoning regulations have been introduced at beaches in Phuket, Prachuap Khiri Khan (Hua Hin) and Chon Buri (Bang Saen) to ensure that international travellers and local tourists enjoy hassle-free fun when visiting the kingdom’s beautiful resort destinations.

Ms. Suladda added, “We appreciate the Thai government and the local authorities in their efforts to return the natural charms to these beautiful destinations, allowing visitors to enjoy them without hindrance. We hope that the images of these stunning beaches will entire more international travellers to Thailand to immerse themselves in the impressive “Thainess” experience.”
