It would actually  promote tourism

And make the film related companies pay for environmental reparations in excess of whatever mitigation they take as a direct result of production activities. What a short-sighted gaggle of nimbys.

Also when the film is distributed throughout the world people see the place The Beach James Bond  Bridget Jones all promoted  Thailand  and Phuket

Not forgetting the 'Bridge on the River Khwae'.

I’m sure this is just the opening salvo to increase the eventual payday.

 

If gambling was allowed here, I’d bet this will be overturned and everyone will be smiling.

If they had granted the request I can guaranty that every reply in this for un would be, 

" What!! I wonder how much money was pocketed by the officials, to let them destroy the beaches." 

IMO, it would not promote tourism, unless seeing a movie where people get eaten by sharks would induce people to go swimming in such places. 

By the way  I had to google "Meg" to see what that was all about and as it turns out. much to my disappointment ,  is not about

1000x fold

The keyphrase in this entire drama. "1000x fold of 1000 baht notes" inside a sturdy brown envelope is the solution.

Hardly a smart decision. Just imagine they had turned away "The Beach" back in the day - that would have cost them many billions in lost tourist dollars for many years down the line.

There's zero chance that this isn't about money, who gets it and how much they get.

 

 

I agree. I am British  and my government are the best in the world

Maybe they don't think the audience for Meg 2 is class A tourist materials, so they don't want to promote that movie 😉
