Phuket Poll: Do foreign tourists respect Thai culture?

PHUKET: The Gazette last week reported that the discovery of a Buddha image converted by a foreigner to serve as a garden fountain sparked a crackdown by the Phuket Culture Ministry office.

The head of that office, Tawichart Intorrarit, commented that many foreigners who visit Phuket seem to understand little about Thai culture.

Do you think foreign tourists who visit Phuket, in general, understand and respect Thai culture?
