Hua Hin's municipal "beach police" will target smokers in a move to clean up the resort's beaches as a new rule banning smoking at 20 beaches, nationwide, comes into effect 1 November.

Thailand plans to impose a smoking ban on 20 of its popular tourist beaches across the country, including those in Phuket and Krabi, the Bangkok Post reported on Tuesday (Oct 10).

"Cigarette butts accounted for 30 per cent of the waste found", said Jatuporn Buruspat, the department's director general.

He also claimed cigarettes have left the country at risk of flooding, with drains clogged by more than 100million cigarette butts dropped on roads in Thailand each day. At the same time near the coastal areas will be equipped with special areas for Smoking.

The Government Named A Hacker After Alf From "Home & Away" Because Australia
Australian Defence Industry Minister Christopher Pyne admitted that the government still did not know who carried out the hack. Mr Tehan said it was unclear who launched the incursion, but the Government was not ruling out a foreign government.

Mr Buruspat said that officials were also considering measures aimed at tackling the related issue of cigarette butts being dropped by tourists from boats. "Doing that allows for a high possibility of cigarette butts being dropped in the sand".

On Wednesday, a smoking ban has been introduced by Thailand on beaches across the country and those who will be caught violating the law will be facing up to a year in prison.

It begins next month and, if successful, will be uniformly adopted across all of Thailand's beaches.

The measure will be presented October 22-23 during a summit of ASEAN countries about marine debris to be held in Phuket province.

Beaches named included Bang Saen, Pattaya main bay, Jomtien near Pattaya, Chonburi Beach, Cha-Am Beach, Khao Takiab, Phetchaburi, Bo Phut Beach, Sairee Beach, Patong, Phuket, Samila Beach, Songkhla. Asean countries will discuss the problem of rubbish being dumped into the sea in each country, and how they are dealing with it, Mr Jatuporn added.
