Chinese Tourist Jumps to Death from 27th Floor of Hotel in Pattaya


A Chinese tourist plunged to his death from a Pattaya hotel at 6:16 AM this morning, February 7th. The victim left a suicide note, saying “Sorry, I Suicide. Goodbye everybody, All of you can throw away my stuff (the victim’s name) 6/Feb/2023.”

The victim was identified by Pattaya Police as a 39-year-old Chinese tourist, whose name was withheld pending contact of his family and embassy. He was found dead on the street beside an unnamed condominium/hotel located in Pattaya’s Nongprue sub-district of Banglamung district.

The condominium has 35 floors. The victim was reported to have jumped from the 27th floor according to his key card in a plastic bag wrapped around his arm with tape.

The 39-year-old victim was wearing a gray t-shirt and black/brown pants. He sustained several severe injuries and was pronouced dead at the scene by police.

A condominium security guard, Mr. Narakorn Rattanakunnara, told The Pattaya News that while he was parking his motorcycle, he gazed upwards and saw the victim flailing in the air before tragically crashing to the ground.

The security guard was shocked and called the authorities immediately when he came to his senses.

The investigators went to check the victim’s room on the 27th floor and found the above named note written in broken English.

No signs of foul play were found in the room.

The victim’s body was transported to a Police Hospital for an autopsy.

On January 16th, a Chinese tour agent fell to his death at a Pattaya hotel. The victim exhibited strange behaviors prior to the fall.
