CHONBURI – October 10, 2013 [Pattaya Daily News]; Local journalists reported that leaked oil slicks were found throughout the lengthy Bang Saen beach. Oil was also found within the sea water, worrying tourists that came to visit the beach.

Visitors from Bangkok told reporters that they drove about 130 Km. from Bangkok in order to visit their weekend getaway, Bang Saen. But when they were about to go into the water, they were able to pick up a sophisticated smell of oil. As they walked further down the beach, they saw slicks of oil throughout the beach which shocked them as they have not seen anything like this before.

Following several reports, a clean-up was organized by the Saen Suk district. The clean-up took about 40 minutes, but traces of the oil was still present.

Though the origins of the oil is still unknown, environment related organizations presume that a boat had spilled the oil in the middle of ocean, making the wind blow the oil to the Bang Saen beaches.
