A tourist was found washed up on Pattaya beach opposite Soi 5 yesterday. 
 
Sanook reported that the 40-45 year old man was clothed, in shorts, wearing two necklaces.
 
He was about 175 centimeters tall, had no injuries on his body and had been dead 3-4 hours. 
 
He looked like a Chinese tourist but there was no ID on the body so police are appealing for help. 
 
The body was found by Somchai, 60, who realized he was dead and immediately called police. 
 
Police are unsure if the cause was suicide or drowning though they noted there were high waves in the area yesterday. 
 
The body has been taken to Bang Lamung Hospital.

Eh .! Drowning you would think was cause of death whether he chose to do it is for the Fed's to try and establish .. Or possibly he fell off one of the boats shuttling t'wixt the Beach and Larn .?

Is that really his name or was the news outlet just using the generic term for a Thai male?

There are no Somchais in Thailand, just like there are no Johns in the USA, no Tommies In England, no Jocks in Scotland, no Paddies in Ireland and no Bruces in Australia

If he is indeed Chinese,it makes me wonder if any of them can swim,possibly many have never seen the ocean before and have no idea of it's danger's.

Its almost impossible to drown from the beach in Pattaya....No rip tide...The water gets deeper very slowly......You must try pretty hard to drown...

I doubt the necklaces survived the ride the to the morgue...

Following extensive police investigation they announce the victim looked like a Chinese tourist!..Purely based on the fact the body colour was yellow, no evidence he was a tourist, many Chinese live in this country.
