Krabi tour operators call for crackdown on foreigners touting tour packages

Tour operators in Krabi are pushing for related government officials to solve the problem of foreigners illegally selling tour packages on Koh Phi Phi.

 

The meeting was held on the island yesterday. Joining the meeting were members of the Krabi tour operators association and related officials. Tour operators mentioned about 38 years old Christopher Dali, a British national who had been arrested this week.

 

An officer from the Department of employment, Krabi Office, says the video clip had no sound so the evidence was not clear. One of the tour operators commented “this issue has occurred for a long time. The problem can’t be solved.”

Did you take them up on the offer? Just curious?

 

What would be their responses if for instance, someone said that some foreigners want to only deal with foreigners on the tour and its signing up details? Just curious again.

Perhaps if these IGNORANT local MOANERS, took the trouble to learn a few words of FERANG LINGO, they may be able to adequately communicate with prospective customers ?  

They already know some words " MORE MONEY "

Which "FERANG LINGO"(sic) would you like spoken Switzerdeutsch or Russian?  Perhaps the IGNORANT "FERANG" should learn to speak the Thai "lingo"

No I didn't take them up on their offer but for some guys looking to survive here it can work out good money everyday.

Some foreigners do say that they will only deal with other foreigners and dont want to be with a load of Chinese 

Thats why some of these boat trips are expensive because of the commissions they pay out

Well, if THE LOCALS are desirous of dealing with/ extracting money from or through visiting FERANG, it might pay them to learn at least a few words and/or phrases in a few FERANG Lingos.
