Maj Gen Teeraphol says, “The meeting today is aimed at finding additional measures to assure the safety of Chinese tourists, especially warning and direction signs in the Chinese language, placed in popular and potential dangerous tourism locations.”
“We have also discussed beach safety measurements along with vehicle safety, including the rental of motorbikes by Chinese citizens. Traffic rules need to be explained to Chinese tourist before they rent out motorbikes as well as reminding them that they must wear helmets – it’s the law.”
“Last year there were more than 3 million Chinese tourists visiting Phuket. We are expecting that this year there will be even more tourists from the Chinese mainland. We want to provide them all with the best safety and opportunity for a happy and memorable trip to our island.”
