Aus Hon Con in tense talks over Phuket jet-ski incident

Recommended Posts

Are there people knowledged about jet skis who know what kind of damage a submerged jet ski incurs? Surely a watercraft like this is designed to withstand a dunking?

You are applying reason and logic. Tsk tsk.

Well we do have the tourist policeman state that it should be no more than 5000.

So this lad was assaulted and asked to pay 8 times the fair price under duress. Fair(er) result only achieved after intervention from consul.

No problems here!

I really have no idea how these guys scan get away with renting jet skis during the low season when waves are high, dangerous currents are present and red flags are flying on the beach.

Actually, I can guess how they can get away with it but it seriously should not not be allowed.

And while on the subject, perhaps they should be banned in high season as well! smile.png

Stop going to Phuket. Everybody should know this is the status quo.

A consular person being threatened by local government officials. Insane.

A scared dog's only defence is to bite.

An interesting comment.

I suppose someone has to explain to someone why "takings" and "tea money" are down on Phuket. That's how mafia works. The money goes up the chain of command.

Not all can be blamed on "low season."

It might be possible the scams, rip offs, extortion, crime etc increases sharply here in the near future in order to maintain the regular monthly payments, or, some may risk "punishment" from their boss.

Every country should make it law, for travel agents selling any country with repeated scams.to advise the traveller of the risks and not to get involved in certain kinds of activities, i know every country has a page warning about this and that,but truthfully, not many tourists look at them.

Yep, from the Australian Government travel website http://www.smartraveller.gov.au/zw-cgi/view/Advice/Thailand

"Australian travellers continue to report harassment and threats of violence by jet ski operators on beaches across Thailand, and particularly in Phuket, Pattaya, Koh Samui and Koh Phangan."

The warning is there, just need to get people back home to read it before travelling.
