Rental motorcycle, traffic congestion, fake alcohol products, migrant labours and local mafia are highlighted as the most urgent issues for Koh Samui and Koh Phangan, if the island destinations are to restore tourist confidence.
Surat Thani Deputy Governor Chalorsak Vanitchareon said after a brainstorming session with people in the industry in the two famous islands that the issues would be discussed at the provincial level.
After the discussion on June 24 at the City Hall, new rules and regulations would be enforced, he said.
"We need an integrated measure to tackle tourism problems in Koh Samui and Koh Phangan," he said.
