why they were not spotted by any police and how they were able to spend the entire night camped on the wall.
When you consider the general timbre of people in Thailand, the answer is probably something along the lines of, "For the same reason no thought to put a 'Do not use in shower' tag on haidryers until that one person electrocuted themselves."
The man had dreadlocks and was believed to be western, and the female was believed to be of Asian descent.
Also, one of the great things about being a "westerner" is that appearing to be of XYZ descent doesn't exclude you from being one.

Police said that verbal warnings were given to the tourists not to climb during a Songkran celebration in the area but they refused to listen, Daily News reports.
The site is considered sacred and there are signs forbidding this kind of activity.
