Video: Thais blaming tourists for messing up Pattaya with unsightly stickers

 

 

Pattaya Update News said that they had received numerous complaints from irate Thais who are furious with Chinese and Vietnamese tourists for sullying a famous Pattaya temple landmark.

 

The Asian tourists have been pasting stickers used to identify numbers and tour groups at the temple of Wat Nong Yai in Bang Lamung.

 

Trees, pillars, walls, vegetation and the religious buildings themselves are covered in the little round white stickers that are hard to remove.

 

The Chinese and Vietnamese stick them there for luck but the Thais think it is disrespectful and dirty ruining an important religious site for local people.

 

They want the authorities to act against what they see as vandalism. 

 

A Chinese tour guide said on the Pattaya Update News Facebook page that they have warned tourists not to do it but they take no notice.
