Five foreign tourists spent part of their holidays on Tuesday collecting rubbish along Laem Pong Beach in Krabi.
They said they were very sad to see rubbish strewn all over the beaches, and felt compelled to clean it up.
Latvian Uldis Baumais, 38, said: “We have stayed at a hotel near the beach for 10 days. We have found lots of rubbish, but no one collects this rubbish or cleans the beach. We are very sad to see this. We want people to care more about Thailand’s lovely beaches.”
“Please don’t litter the beaches, especially with plastic. When the beach is clean, everyone is happy,” he added.
