Drunk Tourist in Pattaya Forgets Hotel, Refuses to Leave Taxi, Ends Up at Police Station Instead

Pattaya —

A foreign traveler intending to visit Pattaya drank large amounts of alcohol right after leaving the airport, got into a taxi, and refused to leave the vehicle when arriving due to reportedly completely forgetting where he was staying.

A video version of this story can be found here on our YouTube.

53-year-old Sayan Yodsanga, a taxi driver from the Suvarnabhumi Taxi Cooperative, sought help from the Pattaya police at 1 AM today, December 29th, after his inebriated foreign passenger refused to exit his taxi.

According to Mr. Sayan, he picked up the unidentified foreigner from Suvarnabhumi Airport. The foreigner wanted to travel to Pattaya, but throughout the journey, he reportedly consumed several small bottles of high-grade alcohol. Upon reaching Pattaya, Mr. Sayan encountered difficulties as the intoxicated passenger couldn’t provide any information about his intended hotel and did not seem to recall where he was staying. Despite repeated requests to exit the taxi, the passenger stubbornly remained inside.

Uncertain of what to do, Mr. Sayan decided to visit the Pattaya Police Station with the passenger. However, the police’s attempts to communicate with the heavily intoxicated passenger were also futile due to his unintelligibility and extreme drunkenness.

Unable to determine the passenger’s desired destination, the officers eventually advised Mr. Sayan to drive around Pattaya with the passenger in hopes of finding the hotel. They also advised him to bring the passenger back to the police station if he continued to refuse to cooperate.

As Mr. Sayan did not return overnight it is believed the tourist finally found a place to stay.
