What a lovely couple... very sad that a holiday and a life should end like this,

sadly, many tourists find themselves in  similar situation not having the skills

to ride or drive motorized leisure crafts before in their lives.....

On Australian news.  Absolute tragedy and she was so young and beautiful.  There should be a law that you must posses a licence to hire a jet ski,  motor bike etc.  I know you must have on in Australia but I guess that money comes before lives in Thailand.

The same should apply to motorbikes. How many foreigners hiring bikes in Thailand havr bike licences from their home country?

Exactly what I said.  Making it compulsory to have a licence would destroy the industry and money is far more important than a farang seriously injuring themselves or dying.

That is so sad.....  talk of requiring a 'licence' is rather out of place, most countries do not have such a thing.

Surely they were having fun, but were playing a dangerous game and it can only be described as misadventure.

 

The husband will have many years of regret.

Oh please, Australia being one of the most over regulated countries in the world .... no thanks.

How about just a little common

sense and acknowledge the dangers and consequences should one collide.

Yeah cause the annual death toll from jetski incidents is huge.

DFAT should have a warning on it's Smart Traveller posts advising tourist to avoid using jet skis & motor bikes due high level of physical danger & lack of insurance cover for use jet skis & motor bikes.

There is no such thing as a jetski licence in Thailand.
