In a bid to stem the tide of tragic accidents, the Pattaya Tourist Police have joined forces with multiple agencies to spearhead a campaign aimed at curbing tourist fatalities during water activities in Koh Larn.

 

The curtain rose on this vital initiative on the shores of Tawaen Beach, Koh Larn, with Deputy Mayor of Pattaya, Manot Nongyai taking the helm on Wednesday. Esteemed figures graced the occasion, including Police Colonel Man Rotthong, Deputy Chief of the Chon Buri Provincial Police Region 2, and Pol. Lt. Col. Piyaphong Ensan, Chief of the Tourist Police Station, among others.

 

The event boasted a robust turnout, with regular police officers, Pattaya Hospital staff, Port Authority of Thailand personnel, and a legion of 60 jet ski operators, beach umbrella operators, and lifeguards from Koh Larn.

 

Pol. Col. Man underscored the project’s multifaceted aims, including the imperative to slash tourist fatalities linked to water activities, fortify CPR proficiency among participants for swift and effective emergency interventions, and galvanise public engagement to furnish tourists with prompt and seamless assistance when crisis strikes, reported Pattaya News.

 

“Koh Larn, a beacon in Pattaya’s tourism firmament, draws throngs of visitors annually, both domestic and international, with upwards of 3 million indulging in aquatic pursuits each year. Yet, the spectre of tourist fatalities demands a proactive stance.”

 

In related news, nestled on Haad Tien Beach on Koh Larn, the Goose House is attracting visitors with the unique experience it offers. Aligned with the ebb and flow of beach life, the Goose House orchestrates three daily releases of its feathered dwellers at 8am, 2pm, and 5pm. Each session promises a unique ambience, whether it’s the tranquil serenity of the early morning, the leisurely sunbathing in the afternoon, or the captivating hues of the sunset.

 

In other news, a crackdown on illegal tour guides in Phuket led to the arrest of two foreign nationals. Police charged a 35 year old Ukrainian and a 31 year old stateless individual of highland origin, both accused of operating without proper permits.

"Water safety initiative makes a splash" :laugh:

 

These  ongoing plays on words from The Thaiger is most endearing, may I have a go at one myself: "It is common knowledge that there is a fair bit of watersports being performed in Pattaya" :whistling::1zgarz5:

 

On a more serious note, I wholly commend this initiative.
