Don't Climb Here! Foreigners fined for scaling wall in Chiang Mai

Recommended Posts

Yeah, okay.

100000 Baht fine and immediate deportation for the following acts:

- Shirtless in public

- Wearing wife beater with Chang logo printed on it

- Beer guts

- Being foreigner

- Climbing stupid brick walls

- Climbing anything for that matter

- Being drunk or intoxicated in public

- Going into a karaoke or go-go bar

Must say I didn't suspect there to be so many tight-asses but TV never fails to surprise.

Yeah, and they did something wrong but looking what Thais and some other people engage with in this country I would say it was pretty harmless.

Ever been to Chiangmai? Know anything about its history and its 'brick walls'? Ah, didn't think so....stupid comment from an ignorant farang that forgot we are guests here.

Some of these structures were built about the same time your ancestors were painting themselves with woad. They are fragile, so if everyone did as they pleased nothing would be left of them in short order.

I recommend a trip to Halong Bay in Vietnam if you want to see the damage excessive tourism can do.

Fairly obvious from your comments who is clueless.

I suppose The Great Wall of China is such a fragile and old thing? No? Why, I wonder...

And these kind of places need constant care and renovating to attract tourists and keep toruism economy floating but here in LOS the answer is always the same sounding: Mai pen rai!

There is a big difference keeping tourists happy and letting them destroy things. You might not acknowledge such separation but I can.

Regarding my knowledge on the matters, I do have an MA (Master of Arts) and rather deep knowledge about many things on the field of culture. I see no harm done here. Not even worth the 500 Baht. When there are no well-kept attractions but mere ruins - holy or whatever - these kind of acts happen. Did it somehow become clear to anyone why these brisks are holier than similar bricks elsewhere? i have never heard of city wall that was holy. Maybe the first.

Been there about ten or so times. And yes, i do know a thing or two about the now-so-polluted-garbage-dump-called-Chiang-Mai. A city that's past is far greater than the present.

And yes, we are guests but for myself am leaving for new pastures. Thailand is becoming more and more xenophobic with other aspects matching it. Lived here over a decade and had enough with people like you who like see themselves as Farang guest without a right to voice an opinion. Somehow, I never have had any flack from Thais. They are much nicer than an average TV Forum commentator with enormous ego and a bias to match it.

it is holy due to the same kind of bullshit

Like I said, you either get the idea of respect or you don't. Clearly you don't.

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.

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

Your first sentence is racial Thai knocking.

Your second sentence shows your geographical ignorance... Sweds are westerns.

Foolish behaviour, for sure. Fun to read the entertaining 'young people today' responses, though. As if the young weren't always foolish.

When I was young decades ago I was also a bit foolish. OTOH I was never stupid like some of the cretins I read about nowadays.

Dad probably left the family years ago and dodges all responsibilities...whilst spending all his money on his new Thai wife, who's 30 years younger than him...

Well said. Many of those dads here.

Funny reply..read back and you will see you are contradicting yourself in reply vs original post. And also, if Chiangmai is such a garbage dump, why go there more than 10 times?!? Cheap girls? Leaving for greener pastures? For the Phillipines I bet.

Many farangs when they come to Thailand lose it.

Climb walls after being told not to.

Go about Chiang mai shirtless.

WHAT NEXT?

Lose it? As in saying other foreigners have lost it for climbing a wall and walking around shirtless in 40 degrees heat? Catch yourself on.

I'll tell ya what's next; exaggeration on TVF is going to be fined 500 bahtthumbsup.gif Happy New Year
