PRACHUAP KHIRI KHAN: Hua Hin town has actually invited the strategy to state its popular beach a no-smoking zone.
Hua Hin mayor Nopporn Wuttikul stated on Thursday the town supported the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources intent to prohibit cigarette smoking on traveler beaches.
The town will designate some locations for cigarette smokers, with proper disposal bins, so they will not litter the beach with their cigarette butts, he stated.
Information of a project to raise travelers’ awareness of the restriction will be revealed after a local council conference prior to the strategy works, he included.
Hua Hin is among 20 beaches to be stated no-smoking locations by the department from Nov 1 under a trial job.
Lawbreakers will be responsible to a fine of approximately 100,000 baht and/or approximately a year in prison, since the restriction is being imposed under the brand-new law on marine and beach resources management, not the less serious law versus littering.
Regional bodies managing the other 19 beaches, that include consisting of Bang Saen and Pattaya in Chon Buri and Samui in Surat Thani, are apparently likewise prepared to adhere to the policy.
