A DRUNK tourist sparked outrage after stripping off and climbing onto a Buddhist shrine in Thailand. 

Farah Haque, 28, shocked locals when she took off her clothes and climbed onto the religious site in Chiang Mai, northern Thailand, yesterday evening.



The bizarre video shows her sitting nude on a handrail while drinking from a can of Chang beer and shouting "chok dee motherf*****s". Chok dee means 'cheers' in Thai.

Farah, from Bangladesh, then continued ranting incoherently before locals gave her a sarong to cover up.

Officers arrived and detained her before taking her to the local hospital to sober up.  

They said she had arrived as a tourist but had been working as an English teacher since April.

Police Lieutenant Colonel Somkit Phusod from Chaing Mai police station said the Farah was staying at a hostel in the city.

He said: "We suspected that she was quite drunk, she could not control herself and she was causing a terrible scene.

''The first thing we did was take her to the hospital to rest. When she is sober the doctors will check her psychological state.''

Officers said Farah was seen stumbling around while drunk the night before she stripped off at the highly revered shrine.

They said that Farah was now being held of the Suan Prung hospital where doctors while make medical reports to be handed to police.

Pol Lt Col Somkit said: ''The correct procedure is for psychological reports to be produced which will help us when considering any charges or fines.

''We are informing her embassy and acquaintances in Thailand.''

Buddhist locals have now arranged to spend the day cleaning the shrine, which is considered to be a scared place where people pray and make offerings.
