Whats with the bar huggers commenting on Phuket town being a resort town?

There's barely any hotels in Phuket town, its a CITY FOR THAIS. The only tourist we get there are backpackers looking 5mins at some old shophouses.

Saphan Hin is a city park with sport facilities.

Sadly the majority of foreigners in Thailand don,t seem to get that. It's the i,ll do as i damn please attitudes of the foreigners that piss off the Thais. Seen far too many half naked foreign women walking down main street and into shops. I wonder why the Thais do not respect us. Get a grip this is Southeast Asia not Brazil !

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

It's called decency and sun protection. As a society we decided long ago to cover our body and move on from sex, hunt, gather to better things

Walking around naked is not what society is about(especially in Thailand). Might be enjoyable for some when the woman is hot but most of the time its downright upsetting because its the ugliest whales that cover the least.

The police are not using the word decency because the western civilization that mostly visits thailand have never heard of that word. Safety makes it easier for them to understand why they cant walk around naked and makes them a bit more scared to act out for attention by being naked in public.

What rubbish.

The Thai's that you suggest are offended, have no problem with the other Thai's dancing on poles, wearing very little, or nothing at all.

How many "half naked" Thai's have you seen walk down the street with a foreigner, on the way to his hotel room?

The reason Thai's have no respect for foreigners is because we are seen by them as foolish with our money, not because of a lack of respect for Thai culture.

"Get a grip" - this is Thailand.

We all know you've never left your west coast if you had you would know that on the east coast Sapan Hin is not a place with poles or half naked thai girls. The reason Phuket town is so expensive is because normal thais want nothing to do with the kind of western or thai people that live on the west coast.

You mean like this Saphan Hin?

"Whats with the bar huggers commenting on Phuket town being a resort town?" - probably because Phuket Town is on the tropical island of Phuket, which attracts millions of tourists a year, from all around the world.

Maybe some "backpackers" wanted to relax in the park, and get a tan.

Yes, I know, a hard concept to understand. biggrin.png

It is their country. If they feel it is not good to wear like this in the park just respect it. In many countries it is allowed by law or by their culture to wear bikinis in parks. people just not do it. is some countries it is common just respect the local culture and customs.

I'll ask again, "Has any Thai law actually been broken?"

If not, it appears the Police Officer has taken the law into his own hands, and had no right to ask them to leave.

Well done police, we do not need almost nude white people in this country, They need to behave or return home, it should be a warning sign put up at the airport . That would increase tourism by 25% according to TAT.

A guesthouse isnt a hotel

A cheap spring mattress bed in a room is not a hotel

a Hostel is not a hotel

Phuket City Police forced three bikini-clad sunbathers soaking up the sun at Saphin Hin to re-dress themselves yesterday afternoon.

Sounds like the reporter is also from the west coast and unaware of anything Thai

By the way, its not a city, its a tourist resort island. I suggest you move to Utah.

Have you ever been to the park in question (Saphan Hin), Muang Phuket, or even Phuket?

Saphan Hin is near the southern end of Phuket Town (Yes - the City, not the Island). This is definitely a "locals park", and there are no tourist attractions or hotels anywhere nearby (unless you consider the Immigration and DLT offices to be tourist attractions). Take a look at the picture that was posted previously; this is how Thais enjoy their local parks.

Additionally, Saphan Hin is well known as a location where a number of gangs hang out, with several gang-related murders occurring there over the past months. It's also a popular location for drug deals. The criminal element there is what has recently forced the local government to close the park at night.

"This is definitely a "locals park" - says who? It's open to the public, is it not?

"there are no tourist attractions or hotels anywhere nearby" - have you considered "the sun" is one of Phuket's biggest tourist attractions?
