Hospitable local police, villagers and a van driver helped a penniless Russian woman who had spent all her money on Koh Chang island get to Bangkok and reunite with her friends.

The woman was seen by local people walking alone along the road from a ferry pier at Ao Thammachat bay in Laem Ngop district on Wednesday last week.

They went to a police booth and informed Pol Lt Mana Phetphong, an inspector at Khao Saming.

He said he went looking and found her, and contacted soldiers and officials at Trat airport to arrange for help.

The tourist, explained she had visited Koh Chang with four friends. They had left three days earlier, but she still had some money left and decided to stay on longer. She spent all her money.

She had managed to return to the mainland but had no money to buy a bus ticket, so she had decided to walk.
