The Koh Pangan authorities and Department of Land Transport officials were out in force on Monday night stopping illegal taxis heading for the Full Moon party on the island.

Jet Jongjit said that illegal operators were giving the registered services a bad name after many incidents of problems for tourists.

These included theft and not taking passengers to the proper destination.

A road block was set up on the way to Had Rin.

Meanwhile tourists travelling on the roof of vehicles were also told to behave themselves as that is not allowed for safety reasons.
