Shameless skinny-dipping farang couple sought by police.

Our neighbors to the West... many of us have a love for Thailand and it's certainly got plenty to talk about, so lets talk about it here so that it doesn't overwhelm our regular Cambodia sections.

Shameless skinny-dipping farang couple sought by police.

More tourists behaving badly:

The peaceful northern getaway town of Pai was traumatized yesterday when a farang couple shamelessly skinny-dipped in their river in broad daylight.

The duo were spotted in Pai River au naturel, shocking the Mae Hong Son’s town residents as they reportedly bathed nude and posed in suggestive ways for people who snapped their photos.

A resort owner on the riverbank told Manager Online that the two farangs had been taking a bath there for two days in a row. The police were called, but the nudist couple left on their motorbike before they arrived.

Public nudity is illegal in Thailand.

The resort owner also reported tourists in skimpy beachwear near the temple area. He said that such obscenity “ruined the reputation of Pai and Thailand” and that other hotel operators should educate their guests.

Pol. Co. Worapon Ponmanee, Commander of Pai Police, said that the officers have requested hotel operators in the area to keep an eye out for the couple so they could make an arrest and prosecute the two because they “damaged the image of Pai.” He also asked locals to report any inappropriate tourists...

So if you see any nude farangs with pixeled faces and private parts, be sure to alert the police. They are instantly recognizable. :plus1:

But seriously, how could you possibly think this is ok ? There is a time and place for everything, but this wasn't it.

This reminds me of the naked barang motorbikers in Cambodia from a year or so back. Seems like tourists have been keeping their clothes on a bit more recently though. It's been ages since we've had reports of naked foreigners wandering the streets.

Public nudity is illegal in Thailand.

really? I have seen countless women sun bathing topless in patters, jomtien and koh larn over the years.
(and even a few Thai's as well)

never saw one get arrested or even told to cover up.

(BTW, it only 'bad behavior' if they're ugly )

just sayin'
