Re: Bangsaphan Coronavirus/Covid-19 updates

The Thai government are way behind in schemes to gouge more money out of tourists. Some years ago when I got visas for our trip to India I found I had to pay a levy to support indigent Indian workers abroad.

Re: Bangsaphan Coronavirus/Covid-19 updates

I remember a year or so back they were going to ban the sale of alcohol within 500 metres of an educational establishment. This of course would have closed down large parts of Bangkok, Chiang Mai and every other town in the country. What happened to that? It is not only Thailand that comes up with s...

Re: Bangsaphan Coronavirus/Covid-19 updates

I am reminded of the days in England when the pubs had restricted hours. There were extensions, for instance market days. When Covent Garden in London was a wholesale fruit and veg market the pubs were open all through the night for the benefit of thirsty market workers. It was amazing how many of t...

Re: Bangsaphan Coronavirus/Covid-19 updates

Presumably people find ways round the ban. There are hours when it is not permitted to buy a bottle of hooch. I have found it is easy to get round this by finding a shop run by Chinese. They recognise the stupidity of the prohibition and are very happy to make a few baht.

Re: Bangsaphan Coronavirus/Covid-19 updates

We had an email from a friend in Chiang Mai who also said alcohol would be banned for another month - but with a 2 day grace period to replenish stocks. Beyond belief.

Re: Bangsaphan Coronavirus/Covid-19 updates

Looking at the Thailand Unlocked guide I see no mention of hotels or guesthouses. Have they always stayed open?

Re: Status of various things in Bangsaphan

Here is a brief update from far away England. We are allowed out of the house for an hour a day for exercise (keeping 2 metres apart from anyone else on the street) and once a day to shop. We live in Chipping Sodbury where the local supermarket is Waitrose. I got an emai encouraging me to use Click-...

Re: Major flooding in Bangsaphan

It is staggering to see the damage and all the heartbreak you folk must be suffering. I hope the skies are blue now. We were in Bang Saphan for a few days at the beginning of February. I hope Theatre Villa is OK. Theatre is fine. We are next door and had some bad problems, a little on the Theatre's...

Re: Seanery Restaurant

Booking.com says they have 14 rooms but only 3 vacancies. Can this be right? Can someone check if there lots of happy guests (I would but I live in Chipping Sodbury).
