TAT criticises operators of suspended Pattaya-Hua Hin ferry | The Thaiger

The Tourism Authority of Thailand is criticising the operator of the Pattaya-Hua Hin ferry service over the suspension of boat trips on the grounds that it is low season and too few passengers.

The Prachuap Khiri Khan Harbour Office announced this morning that the Royal Passenger Line would suspend the service from September 20 to October 31 and would resume services on November 1.

However, Orasa Avudhkhom, director of the Prachuap Khiri Khan Office of TAT, says that the low season should not be a reason for suspending services. She said boat services should only be suspended if the sea was too rough or weather conditions were hazardous.

She said the suspension of services will affect tourism in Hua Hin. The ferry route concessionaire should have used marketing campaigns during the low season to attract business, instead of suspending the services, she said.

The Thai man, who allegedly committed suicide by letting a train run over him on Saturday night in Prachuap Khiri Khan’s Cha-am district, has been identified as the main suspect in the murder of a 39 year old Bangkok woman whose body, with multiple stab wounds in the neck, was found stuffed in a large plastic box in a house in Hua Hin district yesterday morning (Sunday).

The provincial police chief says the man, identified later as 26 year old Dithawat Dros, was linked to the murder case as he was the tenant of the rented house where the woman’s body was found.

Police suspect that he might have killed the woman in anger and committed suicide to avoid punishment, police said. They are not aware of the motives for the murder at this stage.

Investigations continue into the alleged suicide and murder.

The body of a 39 year old Bangkok woman, with multiple stab wounds in the neck, has been discovered stuffed in a large plastic box in the toilet of a rented house in Hua Hin district, Prachuap Khiri Khan province today (Sunday).

The woman, who doctors estimate has been dead for three days before the body was found, was later identified as Suchapat Hiranpanthachote.

A Hua Hin hotel had contacted police about a female guest who had left all her belongings in her room without checking out of the hotel as scheduled on October 9.

Suchapat’s younger brother, who along with relatives came to Hua Hin to look for the missing woman after being unable to contact her, told police that the victim had left her home for Hua Hin on October 8, corroborating the hotel’s information that she had checked in that night alone.

She reportedly left in her black car the next morning and never returned to the hotel. The brother joined police to check the rented house in question to look for her.

They encountered strong smell coming from the locked house, where the woman’s black sedan was found parked. Her body and a bloodstained knife was found in the toilet.

A neighbour told police that the house was for rent and previously two men and a woman stayed there but in recent times there was only one man who stayed there. She said she had heard loud noises from that house three days ago but didn’t suspect any wrongdoing. But she says she was later puzzled to see the male tenant leaving the house by jumping over the fence and riding away on a motorcycle.

She said she had smelt the bad odors from the house next door but never thought it was from a murder.

Warning for horny pachyderms in Phetchaburi | The Thaiger

Sanook reports that the head of the Kaeng Krachan national park in Phetchaburi is warning us to take care after a video showing an elephant in ‘musth’. An elephant in musth can have up to six times greater reproductive hormones running through their veins.

According to the national park chief, elephants can become dangerous to their own kind as well as humans during this period that can last for many weeks.

The video showed a violent altercation between two elephants – one a bull elephant the other of unspecified gender – on the “Nong Plub – Huay Sat Yai” Road in the national park. Mana Phermphoon is warning the public to be on the lookout as his staff try to help the situation by isolating the animal.

Sometimes elephants in musth are denied food and water in an effort to calm them down. Many zookeepers have been killed and animals in the wild also present serious problems.
