Tourist beaches in Thailand to issue new bans to protect popular holiday islands

POPULAR tourist beaches in Thailand which are often visited by British travellers face a number of bans in a bid to save the islands from the effects of tourism over the years.

Tourist beaches in Thailand have seen a number of travellers visit the islands, with estimated figures of 37.5 million tourists in 2018, according to The Ministry of Tourism and Sports.

The increase in numbers, up from 35.3 million in 2017, has caused a large amount of damage to the islands as tourism increases.

In a bid to protect them, the Government of Thailand is issuing a number of bans to three of the most popular islands in the south of the country.

Koh Samui, Koh Tao and Koh Phangan, which is where the famous full moon parties are held and see over one million tourists, will be affected by the bans.
