“Tourist Police checked CCTV footage nearby and found that those Chinese tourists were travelling with a white tour bus.
They are know to have stopped at the sculpture for about one hour.
Some of them decided to clamber all over the sculpture. Krabi Tourist Police are tracking down the local tour groups to find which tour company they were traveling with.
“This had never happened in the past. Civil defense volunteers nearby says they’ve stopped people in the past by blowing a whistle several times but they are mostly ignored.”
“We need to put a sign in the Chinese language to warn them that they cannot climb up on to the sculpture. The signs in Thai and English have already been put up.” – TheThaiger
