Thai caption: Appropriate or not?
 
Thais have slammed a British tourist who posted pictures of herself walking on a wall at a famous Chiang Mai temple.
 
They have called for her to apologize for her behavior saying she should know better than to do this in a temple in Thailand. 
 
One post critical of her said that she shouldn't treat a temple as a personal catwalk. 
 
The tourist - who CM108.com said was British - was walking on the "Ku Jao Luang" wall at the temple of Wat Suan Dok on Suthep Road in Chiang Mai. 
 
She has been asked to remove her posts on Facebook and Instagram. The posts were made in the middle of last month and have been widely shared. 
 
Wat Suan Dok is a well know temple in the northern Thai city featuring many white pagodas. It is a Royal Temple of the third class.
