BANGKOK, 28 August 2016 — The Prime Minister has ordered a total clampdown on “zero-coin” tours for their adverse impact on Thailand’s tourism industry.
Maj. Gen. Sunsern Kaewkumnerd, spokesman of the Prime Minister’s Office, said that after PM Gen. Prayut Chan-o-cha had instructed the Tourism Ministry, the Tourist Police and related agencies to join forces to find firm solutions to the problem of “zero-coin” tours, there have been arrests of owners of at least two travel companies involved in such a business practice.
