A foreign man was caught on camera taking the p*ss on a red tuk tuk in the Patong neighbourhood of Phuket on Friday. A video of the incident quickly went viral on Thai social media on Friday, June 21.

A Thai baht bus driver shared the video on his Facebook account, เบส ซาโจ้, on Friday with a caption that read, “Mobile toilet is everywhere in Patong. I’m sick of this kind of tourist.”

In the video, two foreign tourists were seen sitting opposite each other on the red tuk tuk. One of them was drinking a can of beer, while the other, in a red shirt, was urinating directly onto the vehicle.

The foreign man dared to urinate even though the tuk tuk was in a traffic jam, where other motorists could clearly see his actions.

The video drew a lot of complaints about the foreign man in the comments section.

“A variety of tourists we have to meet each day.”

“Bad behaviour.”

“Mobile toilet…”

“Don’t poop, OK?”

“This man behaves worse than a dog. The animal chooses a suitable spot to pee, but he doesn’t.”

“Charge him 10,000 baht for cleaning!”

In a similar report in March, a foreign woman faced criticism after she urinated on the footpath of Bangla Road in Phuket while intoxicated. She was caught on a viral video pulling off her pants and urinating near a signpost despite many witnesses staring at her.

Another incident took place at the Temple of the Emerald Buddha in Bangkok in May when a couple, believed to be Chinese, let their daughter urinate in public outside the Grand Palace. Some Thai netizens felt the girl was too young to understand the rules, while others said her parents were old enough and should have controlled their child.

In May of last year, a transwoman was criticised for urinating by the roadside near Lumpini Police Station. Her friend did not warn her about the inappropriate action but instead took a video of her and shared it on social media platforms.
