Patong Beach

negative impact on the environment: habitats destroyed, disruption of ecosystems
pollution caused by improper waste disposal by resorts and factories
locals and tourist attractions have to compete for limited local resources
forced acquisition of farmland and fisheries results in lost of livelihood for many locals(coasts have the most fertile soil for crops)
economic benefits might not benefit locals as tourists in resorts like Club Med do not go out to local shops and restaurants as everything is already provided for.
Laws are not being strictly enforced resulting in accidents as speedboats go above the legal limit and results in accidents. For example: A chinese national was left in a coma after colliding with a boat while jet skiing
