Obviously Thailand isn't interested in what tourists might actually want.

The Hua Hin district chief has called for action to be taken against individuals who have been encroaching on the beach area.

Many people are setting up large seafood restaurants and residential projects in protected areas along the Retdamri Road from Saphan Pla to San Jao Mae Thap Thim, reported Daily News.

Suthipong Khai-udom said that those who are breaking the law have enjoyed the protection of a local politician. No one dared enforce the law.

Complaints were made by local environmentalists that the beach was being encroached upon. They demanded action.

The matter has now been referred to environmental protection agencies and the military for action.

The tenses in the above translated report are not quite accurate. For example "are setting up" should be "have set up". In fact this "problem" is now many years old and some people might claim the restaurants are part of Hua Hin's attractions. The road referred to is, of course, Naretdamri, from the fishing pier to the Chinese shrine just before the Hilton. Will be interesting to see what happens. What will they do - demolish all the restaurants, leaving an eyesore behind? A clean up could be expensive.

It was a copied translation, they're often incorrect. If our members and mods posted the original Thai articles 99% of our readers would not be able to understand them.

Not criticising. I thought that maybe some readers might think this was something new and ongoing when in fact the restaurants mentioned in the article are the well known and long established ones on that stretch of Naresdamri (or Naresdamri). :)

10 or 12 years ago, all those businesses/restaurants were given 60 days to quit. The plan was to open the beach as it is in Cha-am. A delegation was sent to BKK and the notice was extended to 1 year. Nothing was ever heard of again. Far too much money in that strip!
