A Polish tourist was rescued from the forest on a mountain in Koh Pha-ngan in Surat Thani Monday night after getting lost earlier in the day, a senior tourist police officer said.

 

Pol Maj Gen Angkoon Klaiklueng, commander of Tourist Police Division 3, said the search for Tomasz Andrzej Sliwinski started at 5.30pm after the tourist police on the island were alerted that he had become lost on the mountain between Haad Rin beach and Haad Yuan beach in Moo 6 village in Tambon Ban Tai.

 

The tourist police sought help from local troops, district officials, the tambon chief, village headman, and park officials to assemble search teams to look for him.

 

The tourist was located at 9pm and led to the tourist police booth on Haad Rin beach. The authorities then contacted the Than Sadet Hotel in Moo 5 village of Tambon Ban Tai to collect him.

How in the Hell do you get lost on a small island?

 

You cannot go anywhere without running into the ocean - especially if you walk downhill!

 

PMSL !

There's lot's of ravines on the islands, if you fall you're in problem. 

Also there's more than one mountain.

No sh1t Sherlock! - I guess some people shouldn't wander too far from the resort front gate if there is more than one mountain on a little island

Listen sport - I spent a year in the Solomon islands - over 1000 islands! - in a peace-keeping job.  Many of them uninhabited and un-mapped.. Prior to that I grew up in the bush in Australia. A place like Phangan is a joke.  A couple of ignorant, uneducated tourists get "lost" and a whole lot of people think it's a bit of a problem

 

Then you come along and make a silly statement about me and Phuket?

 

And Yes.  I live on Samui and I've been on and around Phangan once or twice - - - - - -

Stories a bit light on info.

 

Is that 3 of the 4 in bandages or just some odd clothing on 2 of them?

 

Who out of this pack of poles actually got lost. If it was one of the kids fan good job.
