Thais are told: Stop expecting foreigners to clear up your filthy mess! | News by Samui Times

Don’t expect civic minded foreigners to clear up after you. 

The message came as Manager spoke of the embarrassment and shame of pictures posted on Facebook that showed a Westerner clearing up food waste on the beach at Kamala in Phuket. 

The poster said: “Please keep it tidy. Don’t expect foreigners to clear up after you”. 

Manager contacted the poster who said that the good Samaritan foreigner was a Portuguese man called Rui who comes to the area on holiday every year. 

He is so well known that the locals have given him the nickname of “Ooi”.

He is seen out on Layi beach almost every day cleaning up after people, especially after municipal events. 

Manager said that he was setting a great example but pulled no punches in saying Thais should stop littering in their country after eating. They should throw stuff away and behave better. 

The said many online posted comments like “they know how to eat but they don’t know how to tidy up”.
