Mr Thatri was presented with a special “thank you” certificate yesterday (February 20) by the Phuket Tourist Assistance Center (TAC), set up at the Phuket International Airport.

The 29-year-old, who works for Tez Tour, stumbled across the small bag on the ground in the airport car park on February 15 containing the money and passport.

He handed it into Tez Tour, who informed the TAC.

Meanwhile, Russian tourist Roman Kozlov had realised his bag was missing, so visited the Tachatchai Police Station in Thalang. The police contacted the TAC and his bag was returned – all within the same day.

To say thank you, Mr Kozlov gave Mr Thatri US$200 in return for his honesty.

Mr Tatri said he was surprised to find the money, and he did not consider stealing the bag’s contents because it was not his to take.

Director of the Phuket Provincial Office of Tourism and Sport, Santi Pawai, told The Phuket News the TAC provided a good service for tourists, and this was a great example of the centre working well with other authorities to ensure a tourist was helped.
