Thailand offers tourists a court of their own

Tourists who run into trouble in Thailand have a new recourse: a tourist court set up specifically to hear their complaints about crime and unscrupulous business dealings.

The new court is a pilot project aimed at reassuring foreigners and propping up the country’s tourism industry following a rise in crimes against tourists, such as pick-pocketing, purse-snatching and credit card fraud.

The first court will open this week in Pattaya; it will be open from 4:30 pm to 8:30 pm.

More courts are planned for Bangkok, Krabi, Samui, Chiang Mai and Phuket, the Thai publication The Nation reported.
