Old Chinese tourist swipes shoes at Wat Phra That Doi Suthep

An elderly Chinese tourist has been filmed stealing shoes on camera at Wat Phra That Doi Suthep yesterday, June 9.

The brazen shoe theft was captured on CCTV and involved an older man with a cane bend down, put the shoes on, then walk away.

By the time the shoes were noticed to be missing the man had already left the Wat as part of a Chinese tour group.

It’s unknown if he has intentionally stolen the shoes or has confused them for his own.
