Mr Itthiphol presented a gift and flowers to the Hollywood actor and thanked him for his appreciation of Thailand, Thai people and the Phuket sandbox tourism programme.

Crowe has posted images, video clips and messages on social media of various places he has visited. Crowe's posts on Twitter showing him and his crew travelling in Phuket and Bangkok have created buzz ahead of Thailand's reopening to foreign visitors on Nov 1, the government said.

Crowe tweeted to his 2.7 million followers that he had never visited Thailand, although he had transited in Bangkok six times.
