A country that have to warn their tourist not to sun bathe in a bikini in tourists spots just so the will not ne sexually harassed, has a lot to be answered for and can not

be called a tourists destination... wouldn't be much more prudent to be on a lookout for predators rather

than shoo tourist away and thus giving Thailand a bad name?

Hey, if you want to walk around naked in Euro land, Pattaya or where ever go for it, just don't flaunt it here in family areas

Who was naked?

Beaches are also family areas and public areas, so no bikinis their either eh.

Temples, public transport, restaurants, etc, etc are also public areas.

Surely your logic extends beyond your lame comment.

Restaurants are not public areas. You must pay for public transport so thats also considered a public area, unless its free. Though i see no issue with bikinis on public transport on an island. Temples are not considered for outdoor actvites such as sunbathing in a park on an island.

Totally disconnect from the culture or their people sounds like the many traveling and living here. The fact is the majority can really care less about the Thais or their culture. And they bitch and moan how bad the Thais treat them. I wonder why? HINT! HINT! HINT!

It doesn't take long to understand why Thai girls wear jeans and t-shirts while swimming in the sea...

You got it totally wrong, probably due to not understanding Thai society and (if you actually live in Thailand) being completely disconnected from the people and culture.

Thai people do not sun bathe, and usually wear jeans and t-shirt on the beach as wearing a bikini is like being naked for them. Only place the'd wear a swimming suit (and usually a very modest one) is in a swimming pool where it is not allowed to go in the water fully dressed, but most will put on a gown as soon as they get out of the water. You might view it as ridiculous and old fashion, but this is Thailand, the land of the Thais and if you come here you have to respect it.

Being a tourist destination Thais are willing to accept that sort of dress code on the beach, but not in a park where you are supposed to be dressed up.

As for the police explanation - again, you have to understand the Thai way in order to understand why it was explained the way that it was.

To be honest I don't give a flying toss what Thais think of me....
