French tourist praised for handing in money found in Phra Singh street

A French tourist has been praised by local media for handing in money he found in a Phra Singh street.

The unnamed man, described as only between 40-50 years of age, is said to have found 8,600 baht near Wat Phra Singh yesterday evening Dec. 11.

Details are a little slim but the cash consisted of 1,000, 100 and 10 baht notes, the latter being odd given they’ve been out of circulation in Thailand for a number of years.

Maj-Gen Wakorn Untan accepted the money from the man and promised to attempt to find its legitimate owner.
