The Phuket Tourist Police on Thursday arrested two tourists at a Phuket market after begging for donations so they could continue their travelling.

 

The tourist and city police found the men at the Boat Plaza Market in Samkong yesterday (Thursday) – a 21-year-old Ukrainian and a 30-year-old Russian.

The tourists were sitting on the ground with a message on cardboard stating that they had been travelling in Asia for 15 months.

“Now we’ve spent all our money,” it said.

The pair were fined Bt500 each.
