After multiple complaints about Chinese tourists damaging coral reefs and other natural sea resources the Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has reached out to their Chinese counterpart for help in stopping future incidents from occurring.
According to the director of the TAT office for Hat Yai, Songkhla and Satoon, Phanu Woramitr officials from TAT have sent a letter to the Chinese Tourism Agency asking them to warn traveling tourists to behave whilst here in Thailand.
The letter from TAT asked for their Chinese counterparts to instruct Chinese tourists to strictly abide by Thai laws and regulations whilst visiting national parks, temples, beaches and coral reefs.
Atcharin Muangchan, the chief tourism and sports officer for Saturn said she has compiled a report on the environmental damage that has been caused by tourists, drawing special attention to Chinese tourists on the damage caused to coral reefs.
In an attempt to prevent future damage literature is being produced in Chinese language to be handed out to tourists warning them against damaging vulnerable sea resources.
