ADVISORY

FOR INDIAN TOURISTS INTENDING TO USE JET SKIS IN TOURIST RESORTS IN THAILAND

The Embassy of India in Bangkok has been getting reports from Indian tourists who have been duped by unscrupulous elements at different tourist resorts in Thailand.

One recurring episode that has come to the notice of the Embassy is that of accidents with Jet Skis hired by them, particularly in Pattaya. According to reports received, even though the tourists claim that Pattayatheyare not involved in any accident while operating the Jet Skis, some elements demand huge compensation for repair of the Jet Skis, on the pretext of some damage that is pointed out when the Skis are returned. (Tourists also claim to be threatened with harm to their self and family members, their passports withheld if they do not pay large sums of money.) It has further been reported that these elements operate in groups and even have an Indian looking person amongst them. The Embassy has brought this to the attention of the competent authorities in Thailand.

The Embassy, therefore, advises Indian tourists visiting Thailand, particularly Pattaya, to exercise due caution in view of such malpractices and to be aware of this problem while hiring, if they have to, Jet Skis.
