Post Military Coup Beach Scene

Christoph and I are back from a couple of days in Phuket. It was a great opportunity for us to catch up with Christoph's godson and his family who were vacationing there. We had a lot of fun and shared great amounts of laughter. What I noticed and also loved about the trip was finding out how beautiful the beaches had become.

In August, I had read an article about how the Thai military were cleaning up the beaches and hence, I was very curious to see the changes for myself. After our short time in Phuket at Kata Noi Bay and Kata Beach, I must say that they did a fantastic job in bringing back the beauty of those beaches and opening the public space for all.

Even though I thoroughly enjoyed the uncluttered beaches, I also hope that the vendors and touts who were shooed away are able to earn an income through other opportunities.
