The incident took place just after 1am on Tuesday morning as the songthaew was driving next to the moat near Chiang Mai gate. 

Footage of the incident was posted on Facebook by user Netdao Saepua, who said she confronted the group once the songthaew had stopped to warn them that their behaviour was dangerous.

Speaking to Manager she said she was returning from having dinner with a friend when she saw the group of foreigners, who appeared drunk, on the roof of the songthaew.

Ms Saepua described the behaviour of the foreigners as inappropriate and not good for the image of Chiang Mai.

She also called on transport officials to reprimand the songthaew driver for allowing the tourists to ride on the roof.

Those commenting online criticised the behaviour of the foreigners, saying this was just the latest in a number of incidents of foreigners acting inappropriately in Chiang Mai.

Others were critical of the songthaew driver for allowing the tourists on to the roof of his vehicle.
