PHUKET: Ma Hongcui, Vice Consul General of the Consulate General of China in Songkhla and the leading Chinese embassy official in Phuket, this week called for ramped up efforts to protect Chinese tourists from harm during their holidays in Phuket.

 

Ms Ma’s call for better protection for Chinese tourists came during an official visit by Phuket Governor Norraphat Plodthong on Tuesday (July 11) to victims of Monday night’s tour bus crash on Patong Hill who were still recovering at Vachira Phuket Hospital.

 

“Thank you to all officials and everyone in Phuket for taking good care of Chinese tourists injured in the bus crash,” Ms Ma said.

They could offer to supply their own drivers and maybe mechanics to maintain the busses. 

 

Oh bother immigration issues.

He could have used a wider lens and said more safety for all tourists, which would include Chinese. Maybe get together with Brit, Aussie, US etc embassies to present a united front.... they'd be ignored, but what the hey

Make the Chinese sit at the back of the bus, job done.

 

Just imagine the stampeding horde trying to get out of the bus first.

Since it is the Chinese that travel in organised groups in tour buses, go snorkeling without knowing how to swim and do other things typically only the Chinese do, it makes sense to see them as a unique entity here.

They should all have to pass a pool swimming test before being taken on a snorkeling trip

or entering the water at the beach.
