An adventure company in Thailand has been fined after allowing a tourist to strip off for a naked bungee jump.
The tourist from Hong Kong was visiting Chang Mai when she signed up for the jump at X Centre Bungee Jump at Mae Rim.



The woman, reportedly a model, originally said she would jump in her bikini, but reportedly took off her clothes and jumped before staff could stop her.

A photo gallery and video of the incident have since gone viral, leading authorities to pay a visit to the site to investigate, reports Coconuts Bangkok.

'I didn't think the video and photos would be posted and criticized online,' X Centre manager Bancha Chulakul told police.



A half dozen photos of the naked bungee jumper posing and smiling as she was being unstrapped have also been circulating around various forums.

The centre has been fined 1,000 baht (£19, approx. S$39.44) The Chinese woman has also been fined the same amount, but is thought to have already left Thailand.

Thai authorities have been working with their Hong Kong counterparts to try and limit the use of the images and video on social media, as Chang Mai is a 'City of Culture,' reports The Manager.

Nude hi-jinks at popular tourist sites seems to a rising trend in Southeast Asia. Earlier this year Cambodia deported five tourists within the space of a couple of weeks for taking inappropriate photos at the UNESCO-listed Angkor Wat temple complex.

First, three Frenchmen were deported because of “exposure of sexual organs” at the site. Authorities believe they were taking the images to produce a nude calendar. Just a few days later, two American sisters were deported for exposing their breasts at the revered site.

Her naked bungee jump causes a stir in Thailand. Some reports said the Hong Kong woman was a model, named Natalie.
The authorities in the city thought of mentioning that the event would harm its international standing as a location with a rich culture, but Chiang Mai is likely to be remembered from now on as "the place where that woman jumped in the nude" rather than as a scenic must-go place in Northern Thailand.

Thai tourist companies to promote nudity after Hong Kong model bungee jumps naked

Thai tourist companies to promote nudity after Hong Kong model bungee jumps naked.Tourist organizations around Thailand are planning to introduce nude only activities in a bid to boost their flagging businesses.

A government think tank has been set up to assess the potential for increased tourism that could be brought about by nudity as they seek to repair the damage done to Thailand’s tourist industry by the recent economic crisis.

The increased visitor rates at X-Centre Bungee Jump in Chaing Mai since a female model from Hong Kong did the jump in the nude have convinced many in the tourism industry that a lack of clothes may motivate a similar rise in visitor numbers at their own attractions, and the government are taking the proposals very seriously.

A Chiang Mai based Elephant ride operator has already announced that on Thursdays, the elephants will wear more clothes than the humans, while AirAsia have decided to trial a no clothes flight on the 11:30PM Wednesday night flight from Bangkok to Hong Kong, on which the young model who jumped naked at X-Centre will be aboard the maiden flight.

The phenomenon has taken Thai tourist industry experts by surprise. Industry expert Pongpat Siriwattana said, “Everyone is just surprised that a video of a naked female model would capture so much attention. Previously we had focused on things such as safety, social responsibility and animal welfare, but it turns out nudity sells. Who knew?

Frequent Thailand tourist Stephen Peterson commented, “Would I have to be naked? I’m all for seeing female models bungee jumping nude but I’m not so sure it’s worth it if I have to expose my jiggly bits as well.

Would X-Centre guarantee a naked model with every jump? I’m not sure 2,000 Baht plus risking my life would be a worthwhile price to see naked men or some 65 year old wrinkled naked women doing the jump.

Tourism minister Boomabroon Yaporn, who will chair the think tank, has claimed that embracing nudity could suit Thailand perfectly. He said, “We believe that more nudity could be the perfect thing to boost Thailand’s tourist industry. The temperature in Thailand is consistently hot all year round and we feel many tourists would be quite happy on a practical level to simply ditch their clothes in a bid to feel more comfortable in the heat.

And of course, there is the fact that many of our tourists are sleazy westerners only interested in visitng dodgy bars anyway, so perhaps the promise of more nudity at our various other tourist attractions will encourage them to spend more money.
