The Krabi Immigration Office at Krabi Airport has provided special warm welcomes for Krabi Chinese tourists including more exclusive Visa checkpoint lanes.

Krabi Immigration Office Chief Col Suparueak Pankomon led the warm welcome for 138 Chinese tourists who were arriving with a charter flight on Uron Airlines from China. It’s all part of the recent ‘charm offensive’ to encourage Chinese tourists to visit Thailand and restore their confidence in the region’s safety following last month’s marine incident when 47 Chinese tourists drowned.

Col Suparueak says, “the number of Chinese tourists visiting Krabi has decreased since the boat disaster in Phuket. We have added two more visa lanes for Chinese tourists. So now we have four visa checkpoint lanes for Chinese tourists at the airport. Each Chinese tour group is now only taking 30 minutes to process.”

“We have been asking Chinese tourists at the airport and they say that they known about the boat disaster in Phuket. They understand that it was an accident and natural disaster. They are not afraid because most Chinese tourists love Thailand, the sea and Thai food. Many of them return to Thailand every year.”

(The Thaiger disputes Chief Col Suparueak Pankomon’s assertion that “it was an accident and natural disaster”. The boat disaster was 100% preventable and not a natural disaster.)

Police are looking for 2 men who allegedly escaped from a prison in Krabi. The inmates allegedly cut an iron bar and exited through a window. The inmates were then able to climb over a barbed wire fence, using 3 blankets tied together as a rope for support.

Prison guards guess the men, 32 year old Arnon Denmad and 47 year old Monthon Kansaman, escaped sometime between 3am and 6am. The men were serving drug sentences at the Krabi prison. Reports do not say how much prison time the men had left or details about their crimes.

Police are reviewing surveillance camera footage in the area as well as at local bus station to see if the men fled on a bus out of town. Investigators are also reviewing the list of visitors to see who spoke with the men over the last 2 weeks.

An 8 year old Krabi girl is being treated in a hospital after being bitten by what is feared to be a venomous spider. According to a Nation Thailand report, the concern is mounting for the girl’s welfare due to the fact that another person from the same area died after being bitten by a spider.

The girl had initially been discharged from the hospital with medication but had to be re-admitted when she developed complications at home. Her mother, 31 year old Nuntana Thongperm, says that knowing someone else in the area died from a spider bite means she is very worried.

It’s understood that after being bitten by the spider, the girl developed nausea and fever. Her mother took her to Krabi’s Plaipraya Hospital, bringing the spider along for identification. However, there was nobody present who could identify the creature. The child was discharged with medication but, after developing swelling at the site of the bite and complaining about feeling worse, her mother took her back to the hospital.

Last week, a 51 year old Krabi woman was bitten by a suspected black widow spider. After initial treatment at a local clinic, she had to be admitted to intensive care after suffering a heart attack and lapsing into a coma.

The pilot somehow managed to kick the child in the head. The parents rushed to his help and the pilot also helped as they rushed him to hospital.

Paragliding is illegal on the park’s Klong Muang Beach, according to the park chief. Two other motorised paraglider were in the air when the incident occurred.
