Forget underwear thieves, 2 new crooks are on the loose in Chon Buri- cactus theives. But why would anyone steal the prickly plants? Because these ones are reportedly worth 80,000 baht.

South Thailand’s Muslim leaders reject weed, liquor, and same-sex partnerships

South Thailand’s Muslim leaders are rejecting the Kingdom’s growing liberalism on 3 issues. On Thursday (June 23), Muslim representatives from Yala, Narathiwat, Songkhla, Satun, and Pattani provinces, read a statement against 3 draft bills.

Back to the future – the resistance to taking off masks in Thailand | OPINION

Walking along the streets of Bangkok this morning I may as well be in a time loop. There was only one person not wearing a mask as I walked to breakfast. Me. Everyone else, everyone, was wearing a face mask, just like over the past 2 years and 2 months. It was 7.30am, it’s not as if it was busy. Some sort of campaign to encourage Thais to remove their masks will certainly be needed to ween them off the habit. The new Bangkok governor Chadchart Sittipunt did his bit yesterday inviting the media to his morning run at Lumpini […]

Sewage nightmare continues for Pattaya village after years

A village in East Pattaya has suffered from horrendous sewage problems for more than 7 years, and things aren’t getting any better. Wastewater regularly flows into Daraphan Village 5 from the neighbouring Eakmongkol Village 8, and officials’ minimal efforts have not brought about change. In 2015, officials had agreed to install suitable pipework to carry the wastewater into Pattaya city sewers. But after Pattaya’s deputy mayor and city councillors visited both villages this week, they found that the pipes were useless. Sewage still flowed down the road into Daraphan 5. So far, Deputy Mayor Manote Nongyai hasn’t kept any promises […]

From Pattaya with Love, or How To Win Friends and Taser People!

A training session held last week on Wednesday, June 22, on Jomtien Beach has convinced anyone that public relations are not a strong characteristic in the ranks of the Pattaya Police. Thanks to Adam and The Pattaya News for the video and pics. The display was an apparent demonstration of the skills of Pattaya police to be able to handle a rogue foreigner with a knife. Just out of the blocks, they would be well directed at checking the number of rogue Thais with knives before getting too worried about offenders from overseas. But this time it was a foreign […]
