Not again! Jail threat to foreign graffiti artists at Chiang Mai cave

Chiang Mai authorities are furious that a cave has been ruined by graffiti from foreign tourists.

They have threatened to prosecute and seek jail terms for anyone who is caught.

The latest damage comes to Thailand’s nature after teens from Liverpool and Canada spray-painted a historic wall in the northern Thai city.

Chiang Mai News reported that foreign names were inscribed on a cave at the Mok Fa waterfall in the beautiful Doi Suthep – Pui national park.

The park authorities message was clear and unequivocal to tourists – “Don’t or you’ll be jailed”.

Though they admitted that a lack of staff meant they would find it hard to find the miscreants.

Names such as “Tom”, “Sian”, “Louise” and “Sam” were clearly visible along with other scrawls.

Last week the Liverpool man attempted to write the word “scouser” at the Tha Pae gate.
