Thai social media yesterday after footage was posted online of a Chinese tourist smoking what appeared to be a large bong just outside the passenger terminal at Don Meuang airport in Bangkok.
The short clip uploaded by Nes Tanapon shows the Chinese man happily puffing away while a security guard stands close by looking rather confused.
Reportedly it didn’t take long for someone to enquire what the tourist was up to.
As it happens there was no narcotics involved just tobacco but the man was told his actions were probably not appropriate at an airport.
His makeshift bong was taken away as evidence but no charges were issued.
The online community made several light hearted remarks over the man’s antics.
One poster suggested that perhaps the tourist couldn’t get his hands on any dry rolling paper after the recent floods in the capital and had no other choice than to fashion a bong out of floating driftwood.
