CHON BURI Province’s Bang Saen beach turned lively again today (Feb. 26) with tourists flocking there at the start of the long weekend as the coronavirus situation in the country seems to have come under control with today’s daily Covid count being just 45, Amarin TV said.
Today’s Makha Bucha holiday saw the road leading to this beach jammed with cars as holidaymakers headed there to enjoy themselves. San Suk municipality added a new attraction by mooring three rafts at different parts of the beach which was a huge success, particularly with children.
Mrs. Waraporn Pongnuamchao from Nakhon Sawan province said she heard about the rafts on social media so brought her children along to board one of them.
Vendors were thrilled that tourists had again returned to the beach with trading brisk again after a long spell of desertion amid tight Covid control.
Mr. Chaiwut Kaewphokin, the owner of Banana Boat, said many tourists had come to the beach today probably because it is a long weekend and there are rafts moored there. He admitted that when coronavirus was raging the number of visitors had dropped sharply but right now more of them are showing up.
