Oh no, that is awful. I hope they can clean it up quickly without too much environmental damage :(

Looks like a boat cleaned out its tanks!! It is not thick enough for oil, and appears still pretty liquid.

No matter, regardless, that is just awful! How terrible, and such an impact on creatures!

I didn't see any sign of the spill in mid June when driving around the west coast.

The big recent oil spill was near Koh Samet, way over the other side of the Gulf.

I can see no reason why you would want to re-consider a trip to Samui at this time for any reason related to a small oil spill in early June..
