Removal of Beach Chairs on Hua Hin Beaches

Recommended Posts

Surely they are only removing the "permanent" fixtures - beach/coconut umbrellas, tables, chairs.

Vendors should be able to have a small stall next to the beach, where they can store/display their portable beach equipment. Tourists come, rent chairs/tables/umbrellas etc, stroll a few yards to their chosen spot (perhaps the vendors can help carry & set up the beach furniture), and stay for a few hours, after which they pack up everything and return the equipment to the vendor and collect their deposit.

Tourists would be happy (the beach is empty each morning, they have a larger selection of vendors and equipment, they can choose whichever spot on the beach they like). The "losers" will be the 10 vendors/families who hitherto have staked the beach area for years, as they will have new competitive providers of beach stuff..

This is how it probably all started many moons ago , until somebody got fed up with hauling the chairs and brollys in every night.

Which one says Holiday in Paradise? Photo #1 or #2? (#7 and #8 show the best contrast)

For every tourist missing his rental beach chair, there's a dozen that have (for many seasons) been missing a place to toss out a towel and enjoy what they used to come to Thailand for.

Maybe now, they'll be back...

I would rather have #2 and #8 Than any of the others.

Personally, I couldn't care less. Chairs or no chairs wouldn't stop me going to the beach. In fact, I fail to see why anyone would get worked up over it.

What I would be interested to know is, have they also got rid of the guys who rent out the tables and chairs on the military beach south of Hua Hin...??? Just wondering...!!!

Say goodbye to your sun chair, umbrella and cold drink because there is new sheriff in town.

Whenever I hear this kind of complaining, I chock it up to pure selfishness. I want what I want. I don't care about the ecological impact of what I do.

They're insane for taking away my sun chair!!! What about the tourists? The horror!

The people renting you a chair were operating a business illegally on public land. They were paying the people whose job it was to protect the land (who were turning around and selling it).

I have no empathy for them or you. This is the best thing that ever happened to Thailand. They should be taking out all those structures that have illegally encroached the beaches all along the coast. There are plenty of them in Hua Hin that should and will be coming down. Good riddance. Finally, someone put a stop to the encroachment, the illegal businesses and the corruption.

Sorry buddy. The only thing on the King's beach... sand. Insane, right? biggrin.png

Leaving aside the utter nastiness of these remarks, i would only point out that the "ecological impact" of beach chairs and umbrellas is exactly zero.

Are they going to remove all the sea food restaurants in Hua Hin that are illegally built over the beach?

even I don't agree with all decisions of the Army I have to admit that is is absolutely one of the best ideas to clean the beaches. If there are illegally built businesses they have to be demolished. Brings Thailand back to a beautiful destination. Tourists will honor that.

Umbrellas protect from the sun, which, as all of you know, is very dangerous ( Cancer costs much money ) ; Chairs and umbrellas are not beautiful, but , as said above,

I would prefer they get rid of dogs, horses and jet ski

Ever heard of sun-block factor 50 and a wide-brim hat?

No sympathy to the businesses operating illegally on public land. If this would only set the example to sidewalk vendors, the BKK and other cities might actually become navigable. Sorry for your friend; I'm sure she's a delightful lady. Now Thailand will have to find a way to live & thrive under the rule of law rather than dog-eat-dog.

totally agree a few years back we went to Surin beach and just turned straight back around and left. the mess they made of the beaches in Phuket was one of the main reasons we decided to move to Hua Hin

i hope they clear Cha-am too smile.png

As a family we enjoyed our short time in Cha-Am. The deck chairs are well enough back from the beach and it was lovely to sit there and be served seafood and beer for lunch while being able to keep an eye on the kids. Wish I was there now instead of the middle of this rice field.

Hua Hin was altogether different though Been there many times and if memory serves there is so much furniture on the beach to the left of the main entrance that you have to walk in the water to go left on the beach. A huge eyesore. Didn't like the donkey shit on the sand but you can see it to avoid it and the kids loved the donkey rides. It will never be a perfect world so just enjoy the good parts.

I know them, but for sun block you must put some more every two hours, and again after swimming , and for hours, chairs and umbrellas are much nicer

For Cha am, ( where I live ), the futur Pukhet, there are still kilometers of beach without chairs - umbrellas: don't be lazy and walk; around Cha am, there are tree long beaches without chairs and umbrellas

on wednesday, no chairs ;

for beautiful empty beaches, you should have been there 35 years ago, as I did
