Pattaya mayor gets new job finding lost luggage

A distressed woman at Bali Hai Pier tells Mayor Poramet Ngampichet that she had left her luggage on one of the ferry boats but didn’t remember which one. The mayor put out an APB (all-points bulletin) to locate the boat and find the woman’s baggage.

A woman who left her luggage on a Koh Larn ferry got help finding it from Pattaya’s mayor.

Poramet Ngampichet and his staff were visiting Bali Hai Pier Aug. 12 when he encountered an unidentified Thai woman who left her bag on a boat. She didn’t know which boat it was, however.

So Poramet ordered his secretary to check all the boats in the area and, those not at the pier, by radio, to locate the lost luggage.

Pattaya City now has golf carts to transport the elderly, children and invalid tourists to and from the ferry boats on Bali Hai pier.
