A group of foreign tourists presumed to be Westerners have received widespread praise from Thai internet citizens after photos were uploaded to social media showing them cleaning the beaches on Koh Pha Ngan.
The Photos were uploaded to Facebook by a Pha Ngan local posting under the name “Noom Coral” yesterday and have generated a lot of praise for the foreigners.
The first picture showed a group of men and women gathering up rubbish on a beach between Mae Had Bay and the island of Ma.
The other image was of a lone western woman collecting rubbish on the Had Thong Nai Pan beach.
Comments poured in from the Thai community expressing their gratitude towards the foreigner’s clean-up efforts, with many asking why local authorities were not doing more to keep the beaches clean in the first place.
It was reported that the heads of local villages round up volunteers to clean the beaches each Friday, well it seems this week they have been beaten to it.
