The sight of an oil-drenched crab clawing its way across the beach of Hua Hin, dragging a trail of viscous black goo across the sand, is hardly the image authorities have in mind when promoting Thailand as an idyllic tourist destination. It is perhaps for this very reason men in clean navy blazers with government insignia brought out shiny shovels and posed for the cameras on Wednesday morning. The Hua Hin Tourist Police chose a particularly white and clean stretch of beach to show social media they were busy extracting black gold.
