Narong Thaopanya, 21, was travelling from Bangkok to Sukhothai last week when he politely asked the French tourist to remove her feet from the head rest.

When she refused to listen to him he filmed her behaviour and posted a video of the girl online.

Writing on Facebook, he said: "This woman's face was beautiful but she had no manners.




"The smell from her feet was filling the whole bus. It was hot and made me feel sick, because her feet were next to my head.

"I asked her many times to put her legs on the ground and she would not do it. She just kept them in the air."

He added: "Somebody will have to use the seat and put their head where her dirty feet have been.

"Would she have done this in her own country? If think that she thought she could get do it because she is a woman.

"People should be more respectful when they are visitors to other people's countries."
