Several foreigners still sunbathed on Jomtien Beach in Chon Buri province on Monday despite the garbage strewn across many parts of the beach following downpour-induced floods.



“When the floodwater drained out to sea, it brought along garbage. Waves then brought the garbage ashore,” said Santi Thianthong, operator of a beach-bed rental business.

Another operator, Chatwarin Wongthong, said the authorities should help clean up the beach, or else Jomtien’s image would be negatively affected.
