Chief of police cares about each and every tourist who comes to Thailand

A Royal Thai Police spokesman has said that the commander of the force cares about all tourists whether they are Thai or foreigners. 

 

The aim of General Chakthip Chaijinda is to help tourists and protect them and their possessions at all times. 

 

And not just in Bangkok. Wherever there is tourism General Chakthip will serve and protect you.

 

It is a continuing and concerted effort that will continue indefinitely, said Pol Col Krissana Patanacharoen who cited successes in controlling "zero dollar" tours, call center gangs.....

 

And taxi drivers. 

 

Krissana was commenting after a Thai woman called Pla Suchaya went on Facebook to complain about a taxi driver at Suvarnabhumi airport not using the meter.

 

He had ripped her off with a chartered fare.

Acting on behalf of the RTP chief, Pol Lt-Col Prayoon Pakinsri of the Tourist Police 1 had contacted the poster and found the taxi driver. 

 

The driver admitted overcharging and not using the meter.

 

He was taken for a drugs test that proved negative. His taxi was checked and was found to be of the required standard. 

 

Then he was handed over to the airport police and fined.

The fact you have to say, "whether they are Thai or foreigners" speaks volumes.

Yes, I hear you have to submit a TM30 even if you're outside of Bangkok.

My first!

I don't see the problem with taxi drivers not starting the meter. I gently ask them to start it, if they don't I just tell them I will take another taxi. If I was to post on FB every time... 😂🤣😄

I would suggest that whilst he say he cares for tourists, something was lost in translation.  Perhaps what he was trying to emphasise is that he cares more about tourists wallets and the nicest way his team can empty them for their own good.

Presumably there will be even more love and care for tourists now that PM Prayut has personally taken over reins of the police.

Inbound tourists can now expect to be met and greeted by him with a laugh and a smile at impromtu airport visits.

Thai are known for being very fickle and sadly untrustworthy to a greater extent. 

 

All for show in my estimation.

 

Thai are racist it is that simple because why is there segregation within Thai culture? Classic example is one price for Thai and another for foreigners as with refusal of Indian citizens entry into Thai bars especially Soi 6 Pattaya city
