Normality appears to have returned to Bangsaphan - everything has opened, and everywhere is empty!

Re: Bangsaphan Coronavirus/Covid-19 updates

The bars can now actually open fully, but without any tourists - and the govt banning them from travelling here, it is unlikely they will survive.

Re: Bangsaphan Coronavirus/Covid-19 updates

This virus has behaved very strangely in Thailand ... here are some observations: The virus won’t go on the Skytrain, but will infect you in a car when you’re driving solo Drinking alcohol is evil as it spreads the virus ten times faster, but you’re safe washing your hands with it Getting a massage ...

Re: The end of tourism for Bangsaphan?

It does all reek of another stupid idea from another unqualified minister trying to make a name for himself. When they realise that the billionaires won't be flocking here to get ripped off in Phuket, they'll open the flood gates to the Chinese budget hordes again and turn the other way while they'r...

The end of tourism for Bangsaphan?

The government's plans to revive tourism could spell the end of it in Bangsaphan. The regime wants to target the wealthy tourists only, in limited numbers, and restrict them to the likes of Phuket and Samui where the 5* resorts are. https://www.bangkokpost.com/thailand/general/1937704/thailand-to-tu...

Re: Plastic dumping and burning.

Its a suggestion for those living next to it, didn't say I was going to do it!!!

Getting local Thais that live in that area onboard is also essential, though I think you'll struggle with that.

Re: Plastic dumping and burning.

There is one option since the land owner and authorities are not interested. Its a messy job but a look through the bags should quickly identify the culprit - load it up, and take it back to their property, dumping it back on them, and splitting the bags in the process. Make sure you're fully covere...

Re: Bangsaphan Coronavirus/Covid-19 updates

I would imagine they will allow flights from countries that are relatively free of virus infection in first,lets hope so. Thailand has been ordered by China to delist it as an infected country, so guess what, they'll be the first ones allowed back in. https://www.khaosodenglish.com/politics/2020/05...

Re: Bangsaphan Coronavirus/Covid-19 updates

The Thai government are way behind in schemes to gouge more money out of tourists. The Thai govt is very advanced at milking tourists (they pay over double for pretty much everything here), it has had years of practice. Careful what you wish for, the junta are already blaming the 'white devils' for...
