Quiet Thailand Loud music banned on Phu Thap Boek, offender fined

PHETCHABUN – Holidaymakers visiting popular Phu Thap Boek in Lom Kao district have been warned not to make a loud noise after 10pm or they will be asked to leave the scenic mountain.

The announcement of the restriction came as a 38-year-old man who played loud music while holidaying on Phu Thap Boek reported to police in Phetchabun on Thursday. Thaen Jai-eua, of Suphan Buri’s Song Phi Nong district, was charged with causing a public nuisance and fined 1,000 baht, reduced to 500 baht because he confessed. Deputy Phetchabun governor Kaisorn Kongcha-lard had  ordered district authorities to take action after a video clip of the partying tourist went viral on social media.

Mr Taen told police on Thursday he worked as a system installer at a car audio shop in Phitsanulok and had been at Phu Thap Boek for the first time. He admitted he was impetuous in playing music so loudly on his  car stereo system at 9pm, and again in the morning.
