Trang governor reveals plans to develop Koh Kradan, the ‘best seashore on earth’

Don’t worry are within the pipeline to develop Thailand’s Koh Kradan. Trang province’s governor, Kajornsak Charoensopha, on Wednesday, revealed plans to develop Koh Kradan into a major tourist spot.
The transfer comes after the island was named the most effective seaside on earth in the Top a hundred Beaches on Earth by the UK’s World Beach Guide. The governor introduced plans aimed at developing sustainable tourism with minimal impression on the island’s environment.
The sudden influx of vacationers on the island, stretching simply 2.4 square kilometres in the Andaman Sea, has sparked widespread concern that the island could suffer extreme damage. This month, the number of vacationers to the island surged from 300 to 2,000 a day. Therefore, a permanent management staff beneath the nationwide park will be established to handle and preserve the island, Kajornsak mentioned.
The group, headed by the chief of Hat Chao Mai National Park, will oversee the orderly docking of boats, diving activities, and garbage/waste disposal on the island. It will cowl all features of environmental management, together with rotating diving and snorkelling zones to protect coral reefs. The team will also manage the variety of tourists, although no details of a tourist quota got, Nation Thailand reported.
The governor plans to use an 8 million baht price range granted by Andaman provinces to construct a sustainable tourism centre for guests to entry lodging, food and different services. Local diving operators are also organising trips to collect rubbish from the seabed, look at coral reefs, and bid for a world record involving 700-800 skilled divers.
Koh Kradan, situated in Hat Chao Mai National Park simply 10 kilometres from the mainland, is known for its pristine white sands and coral reefs teeming with marine life. However, from June 1 to September 30, the National Park Department will close Koh Kradan and neighbouring Koh Chuak, Koh Waen, and Koh Muk for four months of annual rehabilitation in the course of the monsoon. The tourism season will resume from October 1 to May 31..
