The scandalous incident where a Chinese tourist couple engaged in inappropriate sexual activity in broad daylight occurred in a Chiang Mai University parking lot on July 4, 2024.

The police revealed that since the university, which owns the property, did not file a complaint against the two tourists, the Tourist Police would keep their information on record as persons of interest before releasing them.

A food vendor near the incident site said that around 5 PM on July 4, the two Chinese tourists ordered food and ate under a tree near the parking lot. Then, for unknown reasons, they moved near a pile of dirt where the woman removed all her clothes and attempted to remove the man’s clothes, leaving him in just shorts.

The woman then had the man lie down and she sat on top of him, all in full view of passersby and students. This led people to alert security guards and police. Afterwards, cloths and umbrellas were used to cover them, they were given clothes to wear, and then taken to the hospital.
