Park officials in Krabi in southern Thailand have implored foreign tourists to stop daubing a scenic nature trail in graffiti. 

There are many examples of “I was here” and love type messages in foreign languages on the steps leading up Khao Ngon Nark hill.

They have been scratched on stone and a wooden staircase and are messing up the beautiful area. 

A park official blamed copycats for the graffiti – once some people did it others followed. 

It was hard to monitor the area. 

There was also Thai writing at the scene, reported Sanook, though the park official who was not named singled out foreigners. 

The 500 meter trail leads up to a 360 degree viewpoint and is contained within the Nopparat Thara – Moo Koh Phi Phi national park area.
