About 200 Mandarin-language Thai guides Monday submitted a letter to call on the junta to crack down on foreign unlicensed guides who compete with them for the job.
The Thai guides, led by Saengthong Prailinwichit who is deputy chairman of the Mandarin Guides Club of Thailand, submitted their demand to junta chief Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha at the Army headquarters. The letter was received by Col Permkiart Juthathet, an Army officer.
Prayuth was told in the letter that foreign unlicensed guides had damaged Thailand’s reputation because they provided wrong information to Chinese tourists.
