SURAT THANI - A video clip and photos of two foreigners in an act that resembles having sex on a beach on Koh Samui in broad daylight made the round in social media on Monday, drawing criticisms.

 The clip was reportedly posted first on the Facebook page of Ruam Phol Khon Mui (the meeting point of Koh Samui people) Monday afternoon.

The two people, in their 30s or 40s, were seen on the Hat Ban Nathon beach next to a sidewalk of Chonwithi Road in tambon Ang Thong. The road is curved there and the beach is a popular sunset viewpoint of the tourist island.

In the clip believed to be recorded Monday, the woman wore a black dress leaning to the footpath and the topless man wore black shorts.

They were supposedly having sex close to three stray dogs and ignoring passersby on vehicles, some of whom honked their horns.

After a while, the couple laughed and walked towards the Nathon Pier.
