Joke of the Month
During February 2019 Officials on Koh Samui island 'discovered' a 'secret' tunnel near the beach in the Mae Nam subdistrict.
Although the tunnel was known to Expat Backpackers for decades, Thai Authorities said they only learned of it on February 22nd 2019.
It took a whole week for the highly educated Officials to determine that the tunnel belonged to Baan Tai Beach Co. Ltd., whose shareholders included westerners naturalised by Thailand.
In the meantime it became known that the tunnel was built sometime in 2005.
Obviously Expats and Tourists know the island better than the responsible Officials...

Beautifying Pattaya with Kitsch
Beautifying Pattaya with Kitsch
On September 25th, 2018, Thailand's Dictator General Prayuth Chan-ocha, in his capacity as leader of the ruling National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO), issued an order to replace the current Mayor, Anan Charoenchasri, with Sontaya Kunplome.
Since then, Pattaya City has again embellished the resort with all kinds of kitsch ...

Thailand's General Election affects the two weekends of March 16th and 17th and March 23rd and 24th, 2019.
According to the Thai Military Junta, all venues must be closed on Saturday at 18:00 and on Sunday all day.
But thanks to Thailand's loop holes and the generous interpretation of the rules, some operators hope to be able to reopen their bars as early as 19:00 Sunday.

More Information
No Alcohol Days
Thailand's National No Alcohol Days include Buddhist holidays and election days.
On all other days alcohol can only be sold between 11:00-14:00 and 17:00-24:00.
Vendors caught breaking the ban are liable to a prison sentence of up to six months, a 10'000 Baht fine or both - but local Police use their own discretion to decide which venues need to be visited and fined...
Don't start laughing:
Do not try to buy non alcoholic beers (available from Clausthaler and Oettinger in this country).
The shops won't sell them during dry days.
Some not even sell Soda Water, because Thais and their Police associate it with (Thai) Whisky...
There's a sucker born every minute...

Avoid Pattaya's Islands
The boats are overloaded, don't provide lifevests for all passengers, are badly maintained and aren't covered by adequate insurance policies.
Pattaya's lazy and allegedly corrupt Officials promised to check owners, personnel and boats regularly, but they don't.
Avoid mosquitoes, they spread the Dengue Fever
Date-rape drug warning
