Russian tourist in Phuket re-united with 70,000 baht earrings

The Daily News reports on the reunion of a Russian woman and her beloved earrings, valued at 70,000 Baht, which she left in Phuket. The woman, referred to in the Daily News article as Yelena T. is 42 years old. She says she is grateful to both the tourist police and an honest maid who played a role in the return of her jewelry.

The story began when Lt-Col Phuttapong Wongwattanadech of the Koh Samui Tourist Police was informed that Yelena had left her earrings at the Khao Oat Airport Hotel in Thalang, Phuket. The tourist police in Phuket were promptly contacted, and they went to the hotel where the earrings were being held by customer services, after a maid had found them in the room following the tourist’s checkout.

The hotel had been unable to contact Yelena since her departure on January 23rd. However, the reunion between the woman and her earrings was a joyous occasion, with Yelena praising both the tourist police in Samui and Phuket, as well as the honesty of the maid.

Yelena expressed her contentment with her choice of Thailand as her holiday destination and stated that she “did not regret it after all”.
