As you may already know western begpackers are sparking outrage across Asia predominantly South East Asia due to it’s cheaper cost of living and ‘mat-salleh-friendly‘ environment. Sadly, these days westerners came up with a bright idea and resorted to street begging just so they can continue traveling? Does that even sound right? (We pity those ‘legit’ beggars that is actually on the streets to get enough money for their next meal, let alone dreaming of a holiday)
In this video taken from ViralPress: This is the moment a furious local confronts ‘beg-packers’ illegally selling trinkets on the roadside in Malaysia. The resident, named Michael, was walking along Jonker Street in Malacca City when he spotted the group with their handicrafts, bracelets, and other handmade items for sale laid out on the pavement.
He took pictures as he walked by which sparked anger from one of the down-and-out dread-locked tourists. The young woman in a black vest stood up and confronted the Malaysian father-of-three outside the city’s Hard Rock Cafe.
In the video, the foreigner woman is blocking the camera to conceal her face.
During the argument, Michael insisted that they are “begging.”
Upon hearing this, the woman got worked up again and retaliated:
Michael believed that the group of tourist peddlers do not have the necessary license or permits to work in the country. He reported the incident to the Immigration authority.
