SURAT THANI: Tourism operators called on local authorities on Wednesday to strictly regulate jet ski renters at Koh Samui after four employees of a jet ski operator assaulted and injured a Swiss tourist.
Thanongsak Somwong, chairman of the Koh Samui tourism promotion association, said business owners and tourism operators wanted concerned agencies to impose stronger controls on more than 50 jet ski owners who are operating on Koh Samui’s beaches.
Mr Thanongsak said some operators took advantages or threatened physical attacks. He blamed state agencies for failing to crack down on rogue jet ski owners, resulting in a repeat of the similar incident.
