Recommended Posts

I see some news sites in regards to Larry are now starting to be blocked in Thailand to keep everything out of the eyes of potential victims.

kudos to Australian Honorary Consul Larry Cunningham a true blue, dinky di bottler

''And it is not wise to always say bad things about Phuket while you are still living and doing your business in this city.''

I like the painted on eyebrows.
I'd like to know why a Passport Office official should be involved in the matter at all.

Sorry to quote myself but according to other sources Siriporn Tantiphanyathep is the Director of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Phuket Office.

i used to love thailand, over the two years i have lived here it has manifested into hatred, i am hoping to be out of here come new year

Ive spent quite a bit of time in Thailand over the last 30years and after about 10 years of southern tourist areas I also started to hate the place, a friend suggested that I have a look around the Chiang Mai area,the best thing Iever did its the REAL THAILAND. Give it a try.

She definitely looks like a mean, nasty despicable piece of work. Imagine waking up to that every morning. Probably just needs a hug, any volunteers?

Interesting profile in The Phuket Gazette..."The individuals profiled in "Thai Gallery" are chosen on the basis of their contributions to Phuket as an international community, and, often, for having made those contributions through successful social and/or working relationships with foreigners."

Apparently her husband or former husband is owner of Phuket Garden Hotel. Cunningham's comments potentially harmful to the family business? Her sms was a little shoddy for a master’s in Commerce from University of New South Wales, Australia.

Although Chiang mai is a sleepy town,more and more tourists are coming here,which means the scammers will be looking for new areas and opportunities, i like it here,but fear,it is changing to fast to attract more tourists, Chiang mai loves money and is starved compared to the south, we can only hope that the northern style of hospitality will remain, it is after all, still the land of smiles up here.

For a career diplomat like Siriporn, whose job has taken her across continents, working in Phuket must seem like a holiday. "Providing passport services is part of the Foreign Ministry’s public diplomacy, but as the only Foreign Ministry representative in Phuket, I also assist the governor in dealing with foreign delegations and foreign affairs," says Siriporn, who took up the position in November of last year.

Dealing with them generally by the means of threats and intimidation. Not working with them but dealing with them. (The muscle)

Oh Siriporn, deal with this scumbag will you.

Two course of action;

1: Since the locals don't give a ratsarse, the central government and TAT should step in or;

2: Leave Phuket to the mugs who think it is an OK place to spend their time and money.

.

I choose 2:

In some places, the locals don't like it but are scared to talk. Not kidding. Scared to explain. I was once at a beach resort and the hotel staff did tell me not to rent jet skis anywhere. When I asked why, they just said "you can find other things to do" and that was all they wanted to say about it. I imagine word getting back to the thugs who run these scams might result in a beating for the hotel staff or something.

On a side note, I can't believe people rent jet skis anymore. I remember them being fun in like the <deleted> 80s or something, but you'd think we'd have something better by now. Anyway.

I think Siriporn must answer guest complaints for her husband's Garden Phuket Hotel.

One management comment to a guest's complaint about the service at the hotel reads as follows from tripadvisor

23 June 2013

thank you for your review.
we have had some problem with some staff who didn t care enough about his job, the problem has been solve since...
but the main thing that you should blame is that thailand is not an english speaking country and skills from staff anywhere ( hotel, restaurant, shops) you go in thailand is usually limited, specially when people speak with an accent from manchester like yours. you can not blame thailand for not speaking english or you should go in an english speaking country for your holidays, or adapt to where you go and learn the basic.

our photos are done by a professional, maybe you didn t have the " glamourized" mood that day or didn t get the right day for sunset, we have some amazing sunset most of the time , i guess you were not "lucky".

Same here... Koh Chang is still nice, we have almost no crime here, Also here police will stand up first fror their own people, but if you can proof, have evidence that you were not wrong, they will help you to get your right (happened to me on various incidents)! you won¨t find a single jet ski rental place around the entire island...during low season which is 6 months, we do not see many tourists still and everyone hardly earns a Baht and of course do they all love money the most here, Î fear that all the scumbag-mafiosi are coming here, if there is no Baht to make anymore out of tourist scams in Phuket, or other more popular destinations such as Samui, Phangan...

With all the warnings any idiotic foreigner who rents a jetski in Thailand gets everything they deserve. I have absolutely no sympathy for these morons whatsoever. If the Australian foreign affairs department issues warnings at all exit points and informs all travel agents to advise Thailand bound tourists, post warnings in all Australian in flight magazines then we would have no jetski operators left in Thailand. If every country did the same we would all be better off. The hon consul (who went way beyond his duty) can only blame the Australian dept foreign affairs for this incident happening. If they did their job properly there would be no Australians renting jetskis in the first place. RENT AT YOUR OWN RISK AND DON'T CALL US advisories would be a good start. If there are any foreign nationals caught in a jetski scam then the blame truly lays on the that country's department of foreign affairs for not doing an effective enough advisory on the issue.

Nice to see you have completely shifted the blame away from Thailand and completely exonerated them for these scams. Those damn Farangs again giving Thailand a poor image.

I agree with what you say, but the sad truth is that even if you had a large neon sign flashing a warning in bright colours that could not be missed, you would still some people staring at the sign with zero mental registration who then go out and rent a jet ski, and then call for help when they got ripped by the scam squad.
