The authorities in Phuket have order the destruction of sand beaches which were created by deckchair mafia groups Phuket.
Sand beaches were made by deckchair mafia group in response to government’s rule of keeping beaches clean and clear for tourists and locals.
The government restricted vendors to use 10% of the beach space in Patong beach and beach chairs were not allowed. The rule came two years ago due to various complaints by the public on Patong beach. The vendors could only put a mat and umbrella only if asked by the public.
However, Sand Beds were introduced recently by the deckchair mafia group who wants to squeeze every single bit of money from the public.
The government has asked for the removal of any kind of sand beds until Jan 14th when the committee meets again to decide upon the fate of the deckchairs.
