Local tourism companies sounded the alarm when the Thailand government closed Maya Bay and the Similan Islands. The government took this step to allow time for the eco-systems to recover from the relentless onslaught of thousands of visitors to these natural treasures.
Foreign visitors could be forgiven for thinking that Phuket was closing down its beaches, when nothing could be farther from the truth. There are still plenty of naturally beautiful sights to see and seemingly endless stretches of beach for tourists to visit and enjoy.
