Two Korean men have had a unexpected ‘cross cultural’ experience after an attractive woman agreed to accompany them back to their apartment in Pattaya.

We’ll dispense with the long introduction because you’ve already guessed the punchline – the ménage à trois ended up being an all male affair.

Sanook has named the lady boy in the story as “Somchai” and said ‘she’ was about 22 years old.

A fight broke out in the Soi 1 room after the South Koreans realised Somchai was a ‘he’ (yes, we’d all like to see a photo of their faces at THAT moment). Somchai suffered a leg injury and the two Korean men were hit in the head.

Apparently all were reasonably drunk (allegedly) and the bloodied trio were assisted to the Muang Pattaya Hospital by the Sawang Boriboon rescue team.

Police have received an official report and promised to follow it up.

A foreign man remains in a serious condition after being knocked down and dragged under a Chinese tour bus in South Pattaya on Friday.

Tourists on the bus were horrified as the tourist was pulled out from under the bus. The man’s left arm was detached and he was unconscious, according to Sanook.

Sawang Boriboon foundation medics performed first aid at the scene by bystanders rushing to provide shade with their umbrellas.

The man was stabilised then rushed to Muang Pattaya Hospital. His identity and nationality have not been revealed.

The 47 year old tour bus driver, Parinya, claims he didn’t see the pedestrian. He says he only became aware of the issue when a member of the public screamed that someone was being dragged under his bus.

The accident happened in the road leading to South Pattaya around 11.30 am Friday morning.

The ‘Fun Police’ crackdown on posting ‘lewd’ Songkran pics and video | The Thaiger

The Thai police have become Thailand’s fun police today as they warn Songkran revellers against posting photos of scantily clad people, or ‘invitations’ to consume alcohol’… pretty much everything you see during the madness of Songkran festivities in the main tourist hot spots.

“No photos, video clips of live broadcasts of nudity, lewd acts or inviting consumption of alcohol should be published on Thai social media during Songkran.”

Such actions are illegal and punishable with a fine and/or a jail term, the police said yesterday.

Pol Colonel Siriwat Deepor, the deliverer of the fun-suppression warning and deputy commander of the Technology Crime Suppression Division, says that previous Songkran festivals often saw inappropriate photos of young women and ladyboys posted on Thai social media (no mention of inappropriate photos of men).

He urged revellers to mark the Thai traditional New Year with polite cultural activities and refrain from any risky behaviour that could lead to violations of the Computer Act and related laws.

Siriwat explained that if pictures or video clips of Songkran revellers wearing “sexually-provocative clothing” were posted online, those posting or sharing them could be charged with violating the Computer Act and subjected to a maximum five-year jail term and/or a maximum 100,000 baht fine.

Those captured by photographs or video clips could also be charged with performing a shameful act in public by indecently exposing themselves or committing other indecent acts under the Criminal Code’s Section 388, which carries a maximum fine of 500 baht.

But he went on… Social media posts inviting others to drink alcohol was also subject to a maximum one-year jail term and a maximum 500,000 baht fine.

Other indecent posts or live streaming deemed against society’s good morality and the law could also face legal action, Siriwat added.

Police said officers will be monitoring Thai social media closely during Songkran in order to speedily investigate potential violations and prevent other viewers, especially youngsters, from copying indecent behaviour.
