Phuket boat disaster spurs response from Chinese President Xi Jinping

Recommended Posts

Safety Standard in many Tourism Facilities in Thailand is unacceptable and many turn blind eye to those who do not adhere to safety rules.

Of course brown envelopes are in circulation to bend the rules etc.

That ferry and leisure boats business  as well as speed boats or jet ski etc etc are  strictly controlled by both local authority and Mafia. It is high time strict control and safety rules are applied  and that business open to locals and foreigners alike?

This could be a key point of discussion at the general's performance appraisal due at the end of this year.

Why not sue the Phuket Governor and the string of assorted officials who stated earlier this year that all was hunky dory when it came to tourist safety.

And he has a very good point.

The authorities need to start focusing on their jobs all the time , not just after a disaster has happened.

The roads are a classic example with STILL no mufti cops on the road checking the idiot drivers BEFORE they cause carnage.

But does anyone really care       obviously not

The Chinese people should be told by their Prime Minister that Thailand is a very dangerous country and they must NOT go there any more.

Yes. Thai social media reporting just that. And it is illegal. But much better for Thais to blame another country. Makes a change from pointing to the usual Burmese suspect.

 

Blaming the Chinese is a bit more tricky ... 

 

And better than pointing out the Thai authorities allowed it to happen.

Why is all the coverage of this on Thavisa being hidden away in the local forum rather than on the main Thailand news forum? Are they following instructions?

Gosh, I hope this doesn't reflect badly on Thailand's reputation as a tourist destination.

No harm done with the Chinese tourist, just don't raise your trade tariffs with China.

A 5 metre swell would make the boats  in the various clips  momentarily  disappear as they passed.

There was no 5 metre swell...

Did all the Chinese go to the topp floor / level?

That could have caused some sway.
