Phuket’s businessmen have urged the government to help rescue the province’s natural tourist attractions from their environmental crisis. They have been gradually damaged over the years by tourism.

“We call upon the government to immediately resolve this problem, using law

enforcement and providing larger budgets to renovate our attractive sites

and help create a sustainable tourism business here,”
Wichit Na Ranong,

president of the Regional Tourism Business Association.

The appeal was made following a recent National Geographic magazine publica tion which ranked both Thailand’s two famous tourists destinations, Phuket and Chiang Mai, as among the world’s worst tourist attractions.

The journal predicted the beauty of Phuket`s natural attractions would be

completely destroyed by environmental problems within the next five years.

Phuket’s beaches and beautiful scenery have already been destroyed by illegal trespassing on national reserve land, to enable tourist resorts to be constructed, said Mr. Wichit.

“Beautiful beaches and the sea are very critical to the survival of the local tourism business. If they go, there will be no more tourists coming to Phuket,” Mr. Wichit predicted
