Thai police are investigating comments made by a Chinese tourist, who she claims got VVIP treatment when she arrived at the airport in Thailand by paying a certain sum to police to cut the immigration queue, pick her up and put her in a police car to take her to a hotel in Pattaya. The woman on the Tik Tok account choudan0302 posted a video clip on the Douyin app, (the Chinese version of TikTok), last Friday. The girl said the police pickup and transfer cost her 7,000 baht and a motorcycle police escort with siren cost her an additional 6,000 baht.
