A Chinese man was arrested after he was allegedly working as a tour guide.
The Phuket Tourist Police told the Phuket Express that this week they have arrested Mr. Wang Kua Cheng (name translated from Thai language), 43, a Chinese national. He was arrested on the Dibuk Road in front of the Mongkol Nimit Temple in Phuket Old Town.
He was taken to the Phuket City Police Station. He is facing charges of working without permission and being a tour guide without a license.
A tour guide is a protected Thai occupation, notes The Phuket Express, and foreigners cannot even get a work permit to legally be one. This isn’t the first foreigner caught in Phuket allegedly working illegally lately as you can see below.
