PHUKET:-- Police are hunting for an illegal Chinese tour guide who abandoned 24 Chinese tourists at the side of the road in Phang Nga yesterday evening after arguing with them about money. 

The tourist police received a report of the incident from the Chinese Consul in Phuket at about 7pm. The tourists had called the consulate for help after they were left stranded on the Kok Kloi-Phang Nga road. 

“At the scene, we found 24 tourists standing outside the bus, along with Nipon Choochom, the bus driver, and Teerasak Saehuang, the Thai tour guide. The Chinese guide, known only as Ms Ammy, had already run away,” said Capt Pittaya Thanawut of the Phuket Tourist Police.

Try that trick in a Western country and be happy if you survive it.

So the thai driver stopped the bus and Ling asked for 121,000 baht extra.  Sounds like she was working in partnership with the thais.

Sherlock ----if the tour guide tells the bus driver to pull over and stop ---then that's what he is going to do, I have a feeling he isn't fluent in the mandarin language, so he wouldn't know what she is telling the tourists.......but hay, dont lets miss a chance to blame the Thais for everything----yes he was the mastermind behind it all, that's why he stayed behind.......:coffee1:

I find it interesting that the male Thai guide has been charged with an offence of allowing someone else to use the microphone. What else is he supposed to do if he can't speak Chinese ? Babble on in Thai that nobody understands ?

 

If an Egyptian or Polish or Brazilian group visits Thailand, I'm pretty sure they're going to be in strife trying to secure a licenced Thai guide with these linguistic skills.

 

As regards the unlicenced Chinese chic that did a runner .... well, apparently the weather is quite nice now back in China.

Congratulations to  Kritsada Mueanhawong for the well written article in the original Phuket Gazette link.  Well and clearly written and pretty much every angle covered and all the questions that occurred to me as I read it were answered.  Nice to see for a change.   More of the same please.

So the guide quit.  The driver was still there and the thai guide so they weren't actually abandoned on the side of the road

I can only imagine the words exchanged between the 2 as the look of fear on their faces...

2 thais vs a pack of loud chinese...oh the horror.....be they were ready to high tail it outta there!

Many Chinese speaking tourguides available.
