pollution from tourists has damaged its fragile ecosystem!
Yeah..it is only the tourists since Thailand doesn't pollute.
5000 tourists a day. 5000 tourists a day. At that rate it’s quite apparent what environmental impact tourism would have on the bay. Even if locals play apart, the brunt of this issue would be a tourist issue
5000 per day is a pretty small number compared to other spots which are doing OK... Perhaps the 5000 per day on top of the horrendous pollution that Thailand itself pours into its waters is just to much....or perhaps the economic growth that Thailand is experiencing and the increased pollution it generates without any real plan in place to deal with that pollution is the problem and tourists are just an easy excuse for culpable politicians.
Evidence, source, science report?
In a nation of 69 Million people, From Wikipedia:
"Asian tourists primarily visit Thailand for Bangkok and the historical, natural, and cultural sights in its vicinity. Western tourists not only visit Bangkok and surroundings, but in addition many travel to the southern beaches and islands. The north is the chief destination for trekking and adventure travel with its diverse ethnic minority groups and forested mountains. The region hosting the fewest tourists is Isan in the northeast. To accommodate foreign visitors, the Thai government established a separate tourism police with offices in the major tourist areas and its own central emergency telephone number."
Nobody cares about this!!
Hope the tourists get a chance to try a Thai beer known as Sing-Ha. Outstanding stuff......
