It will take a lot more than this to taint KPN's name.

Much worse things were going on at the FMP's and that just encouraged people.

KPN still remains a beautiful, quiet island to visit. I go there every year for a short break and will head over there again next month (if the foot ferries are running by then).

These party goers all have a similar age. I am surprised that so many younger tourists are there. New arrivals or (willingly) stranded ones? Perhaps the next thing they might celebrate there are the Full Moon Parties again. But hopefully this raid sent a clear message. Still hard to believe that so many people didn't care.

So destroyed and tainted KPN name, the people who knowingly broke clear laws or the police that upheld the law?

Right, not much to destroy left, but the whole island depends on tourism.

 

They just skrewed themselves, i couldn't care less. Most of these people seem old and got arrested on the art market, wearing masks, before 9 pm. 

 

Your holier than thou attitude sucks as hard as thai cop corruption.

 

Of course this all doesn't apply to thai hisos:

The original Thai report says 89 foreigners and 23 Thais were arrested. I know three Thais from Bangkok who were among them.

Is the "emergency degree" a bachelors or higher?

I think these people should now all be checked for covid high temperature with a anal horse thermometer, just in case, to be on the safe side

What type of thermometer is an 'anal horse'? I tried googling, but it took me to some rather dodgy websites.

They should just shut down the island to foreigners, if this is the way those idiots want to ignore the situation of the pandemic.  Wish the police would have surrounded more of the culprits.

This story is up on the main page of the BBC world news site. Desperate or what? 

I am sure if there was any digital nomads arrested they would have taken the opportunity to sell the story to the BBC and Sky news
