    Phuket - keep your shirt on

    [SIZE="5"]Button Up: Topless Tourists Face Arrest on Phuket, Warns Governor[/SIZE]
    January 5, 2014



    Tourists are being told to keep their shirts on or face a dressing down and possibly a fine for displaying unwanted flesh and cultural insensitivity.

    Visitors are allowed to be half-cut but not half-dressed: that was the message yesterday from Phuket Governor Maitree Intrusud after he went to Patong for an inspection tour.

    'Tourists should wear shirts,'' he said. ''Away from the beach, it's impolite to go without your top covered up.

    ''Besides, it's actually against the law and police can arrest and fine transgressors.''

    Even in your own car or on a motorcycle, it's an offence in every sense of the word.

    The Governor said he had had complaints from residents in Cherng Talay, Kamala, Patong, Kata and Karon about topless tourists.

    Some people even go topless when shopping in supermarkets, a cause of great offence to Phuket residents.

    Maybe a victim of the 'shirt police'?
    'Wear a shirt, or I crush you like a bug'


    Australian tourist, 27-year-old Christopher Collinge, was taken to hospital today (January 5) after a car drove into his motorbike on the Patong Hill, crushing him between the car and the safety barrier.

    **********
    one for the 'airlines passenger standards dropping' thread:
    I don't suppose an airline would allow a shirtless passenger to board? how would immigration react?

    +1 In Bars, especially Restaurants.

    When in the US traveling years ago jumped out of the car on a long trip to buy something at Macca's and they would not serve me because I had no footwear on, in bare feet.

    No matter how 'buffed' or 'cut' or whatever you want to call it, walking around anywhere but the beach without a shirt, is very unappealing.
    Guys may think that the girls will go for it, but trust me, they do NOT like it.

    They will look down at you as no manners and no class as it was explained to me.

    As opposed to looking up to the 1000's of guys walking around with hookers?

    Crackpot team of boys in brown appear in and around Bangla issuing on the spot fines for shirtless tourists. Looks like a cash cow opportunity.

    They look even more out of place walking around a city like Chiang Mai.. Seen it often enough.

    If you wear a singlet or t-shirt depicting a particular beer you might be a bogan.
