Wanted to comment on the East coast becoming a UNESCO protected area. As it was got directed into this forum on reviving tourism in Southern Thailand.

Initial intended content: This is truly wonderful news. The Andaman / East coast is a gem. More and more land becomes occupied and exploited but some places should be left untouched.

Updated content: Rows of beach chairs and piles of rubbish should not become part of the scenery. Revive the tourist numbers but don't destroy the land.

I still like the possibility of UNESCO coming in. Hope it happens for real.
