They should be forced to partake in a cleansing ceremony for the tainted scaffolding.

Many farangs when they come to Thailand lose it.

Climb walls after being told not to.

Go about Chiang mai shirtless.

They should be kept in the police lockup overnight for ignoring the police warnings.

Can't they read the signs?

They can read the signs and hear the warnings but being of the "me" generation these are ignored in doing what they want regardless. As a member of a much older generation I must accept some responsibility for this. We gave them freedoms that we never had but not the sense of responsibility to use these freedoms with regard to others.

They have a YouTube channel so seem to care more for their views than obeying laws and respecting historical monuments.

Farangness.

Probably brought up in an environment where Mum never said no.

Dad probably left the family years ago and dodges all responsibilities.

The western diet also could be to blame for their farang moronic mentality.

Along with the farang education system where they are educated in farangness believing they are superior.

And the extreme vanity they display wanting to post their idiocy on social media.

They show no respect to others, all about me, me, me.

Fine them, jail them and then deport them.

A big difference between here and Farangland is a lack of graffiti and mindless vandalism against public property, Thais kids are much more sensible and have a greater respect for the community.

Smart people these Thais.

Some people lose there brains when they leave there home country. Years ago one of my best friends came for a six week trip. One of the places I took him to was Angkor Wat....we had a guide and while I was taking photos he scaled one of those giant heads and yelled for me to take his photo. The guide was beside herself and it took awhile to calm her down.....

From Sweden? Adrian Moody and Robin Haye sound more like Brits to me. Their behaviour too would seem more Brit than that of orderly Swedes.

Honestly in your first paragraph it sounds as if you are describing thais. That said I agree but this is not limited to only westerners and these peeps are from Sweden I believe not America
