Social media was in uproar yesterday after a Thai family were seen stealing a Chinese tourist’s expensive shoes at the temple of Wat Doi Suthep in Chiang Mai.
The mum and dad with their child were caught on CCTV. Mum takes off her shoes and these are put in a bag by dad.
Then they come back and mum selects the best she can find – a 3,500 baht pair of sneakers – from the rack.
Then off they go home on a motorbike. A good day’s work done!
Guide Pensri Chokchaimongkhonkit said it happened Wednesday. Her tour group customer had to go back to the hotel shoe-less.
She has given the miscreants until Saturday to return the shoes – or they are going to the cops with the evidence.
