Photos of a female traveler, reported to be a Chinese tourist, draping her unmentionables across some seats in the Chiang Mai International Airport’s departure lounge have become the latest fuel for verbal assault from netizens following a few other regrettable incidents involving visitors from China to Thailand.
“Doesn’t their country teach the concept of manners?” one web user remarked in response to photos of the woman, who used not just one, but at least six seats to air out her delicates and then some.
A public relations officer with the airport confirmed the incident on Monday, saying that it had happened about two weeks ago but went viral online just this week. The Bangkok Post reported that staff approached the woman asking her not to dry her clothes in public, but no action was taken against her because it didn’t infringe safety regulations.
On the bright side, at least the clothes were clean. We hope.
