And Tourists Continue To Die On Koh Tao

Recommended Posts

This very strange death of March 2019 had remained unreported in the mainstream media until it was finally covered by the tiny Samui Times, which is produced outside the kingdom.  Samyak's father seems to be facing problems in obtaining further details of the exact circumstances of the incident but one has to wonder whether Samyak was injured just before he entered the water or while he was in the water.

An Argentine tourist, Rocio Gomez perished in December 2018 following her fatal first diving lesson with Pura Vida Diving.  This tragic death was covered by the media in her home country but was not touched by the mainstream media within Thailand, except for the Samui Times.

And other Kohs various, getting so common place as to be unremarkable, as the tourist dollar shrinks, the ne'er-do-well's beer money, does also, how to replace?

This article is from November 2018 and captures the situation quite well - IMHO

“They think our country is beautiful and safe and they can do whatever they want, wear bikinis wherever they like,” the prime minister said. “I’m asking, if they wear bikinis in Thailand, will they be safe? Only if they are not beautiful.” Prayut Chan-o-cha
