    No Selfies Allowed! Tourists at This Phuket Beach May Face Death Penalty for Taking

    No Selfies Allowed! Tourists at This Phuket Beach May Face Death Penalty for Taking Photos.....





    Sometimes getting the perfect selfie just isn’t worth the cost.

    In an effort to increase the safety at Thailand’s Phuket International Airport, tourists at Mai Kho beach could face some seriously strict punishments — including the death penalty — for taking selfies in front of the popular low flying planes.


    In recent years, the beach has become known as “Unseen Phuket,” serving as a backdrop for countless tourist selfies and photos because of the novelty of incoming planes than can frequently be seen flying very low over the beach while en route to the runway, reported Aol.com.




    The airport official went on to issue an additional warning to anybody living or staying within 9 kilometers of the airport, urging them against flying drones or shining lights at the incoming planes, according to the Chiang Rai Times.


    Those who violate these rules, which are established under the Air Navigation Act, could face the country’s maximum punishment.

    “The maximum penalty is the death sentence,” he shared......snip~

    A bit harsh I would say. But still I don't think Thailand will want to kill any tourists. Now maybe their own citizens is a different matter. What say ye?
