Royal Thai Police Region 8 Volunteers spent two days helping a Swedish tourist find his hotel again after he forgot the name of it.

Volunteer Divan Mydeen said the volunteers were approached by tourist Karl Berglund, 67, on Friday night (May 30) while they were patrolling in Patong.

patongMr Berglund told police he had checked in the previous day (Thursday) to a hotel and left his belongings at the hotel while he went for a walk. After some time, he realised he didn’t know the name of the hotel, or where it was located.

He spoke to several people who took him around some hotels to check, before Mr Berglund spoke to Patong police. He spent the night in a guesthouse using money locals had given him.

The next day Mr Berglund visited the tourist police, and together the volunteers and him drove around Patong trying to find his hotel, to no avail. After many hours with still no idea where his original hotel was as dusk hit, Mr Berglund spent the night in a guesthouse in Patong.

The next day the volunteers began searching again, and finally Mr Berglund spotted the hotel he was staying in. He was reunited with his belongings.
