Thai officials from the Tourist Assistance Centre (TAC) have visited the female Chinese blogger who lost her left arm in a road accident on the way from Bangkok to Ko Chang.
The story has produced another firestorm of criticism in Chinese social media with headlines like “Don’t go to Thailand”.
The woman was in a van with a driver provided by a tour company.
“The tourism officials visited me with flowers and asked me about the accident. They had seen the news online. Thanks to everyone," the woman posted.
“I hope they investigate these rental companies to stop such accidents in the future."
Police said the company and its driver and the family of the victim would discuss compensation. Officials say they hope some good could come from the investigation to improve road safety and communications.
