Welcome to Thailand - Here's some soap for you!

BANGKOK: -- Tourists visiting Thailand on Thursday were greeted at the airport and given sweet smelling orange soap.


The gesture was part of celebrations for the Chinese New Year.


Passengers on TG flight 663 from Shanghai were given the soap and treated to a performance of Chinese dance.


The welcome was organized by the airport authority in conjunction with police and Samut Prakarn municipal staff including the governor of the province.


Deputy head of Suvarnabhumi airport operations Chadanisa Chamnanwet said they wanted to create a good atmosphere for tourists visiting during Chinese New Year and that the soap was very auspicious as oranges are often given at this time of year.

It's usually the Indians that need the soap    :thumbsup:

I once set next to an extremely obese Egyptian on a long flight that got longer and longer as my nostrils numbed....

There are people from some foreign countries that should  be required to have daily "odor" checks as part of their entry requirements not just hand them a bar of soap!  There's and old saying, "you can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink".  Baths every Saturday here just doesn't hack it!  And not just those from the Africa and India!
