A nasty street fight in Khao San has been doing the rounds of social media after it was filmed at the weekend and posted online.

The poster didn’t want to be named for fear of retribution.

The fight shows a group of Thai men kicking a British man while he is on the ground. While a female vendor nearby calls for the end of the one sided encounter saying the tourist can’t fight back, some friends finally come to his aid.

Four British tourists – one of them covered in blood – reported the assault to Chana Songkram police on Sunday night.

Apparently the tourists had tried to get into a club but the bouncers would not let them and after an argument the fight erupted down the street.

Two Thai men were arrested later and charged with assault. They said that the tourists were denied entry because one was very drunk.

An argument ensued that let to the fight, they told police.
