Oil Slick hits Thailand Reaching Over 10km of Sandy Beaches

On the 27th October 2015 An oil slick about ten kilometers long hit the beach of Hua Hin producing horrid smells and driving away local and foreign tourists from the beach.

The presence of the oil slick prompted Hua Hin mayor Nopporn Wutthikul to seek help from the Navy to find out if the problem was caused by oil spills from commercial freighters or large fishing boats or any of those vessels sank in the sea off Hua Hin causing the oil spills.

Specimens of the oil slick were sent to the environment office for testing to confirm what had happened and how.

Huan Hin Beach

Hua Hin officer Sutthipong Klai-udom said it was initially suspected that the oil was deliberately dumped into the sea by a vessel dealing in contraband goods.
Tourists were advised not to venture into the sea for 1-2 days until the situation has returned to normal.
Government workers and local residents began cleaning up Hua Hin beach on Wednesday after the Prachuap Khiri Khan coastline was fouled with oil, tar balls and petroleum-coated garbage. The clean up began at 9am.
Tourists and locals should not go swimming in the sea unil notices have been put up by government officials.

Amazing Thailand Sets Up A Tourist Court

Tourist Courts In Thailand

The Thailand Tourism Court - Amazing Thailand and its Tourism Ministry is working on a plan to set up a tourist court to offer better protection to foreign visitors to the country. Many times they are needed as a lot of petty crimes happen - beware some Thai Girls are out to scam you.


Tourism Minister Somsak Phurisrisak said on Monday that the idea of the tourist court establishment was conceived to provide fair and better protection to visiting travelers after more and more have been reportedly harmed while traveling in Thailand.

Mr. Somsak said the concept is now under deliberation with Mr. Wirat Chinwinijkul, Secretary-General of the Courts of Justice.

He added that the court establishment will initially begin in the form of a tourist department under the Courts of Justice.

The Tourism Minister went on to say that the discussion with Mr. Wirat also shed light on the idea of a night court, in order to help speed up the legal proceeding.

Mr. Somsak is also scheduled to meet with National Police Chief Pol. Gen. Adul Saengsingkaew on May 1, when he will ask the police to be more swiftly and determinedly handle all cases related to tourists in order to allow subsequent court proceedings to go on and without any delay.
