Khaosan Road Clear The Sidewalks

Tuesday, September 5th, 2017


Street vendors operating in Khao San Road have been instructed to clear the sidewalks down this popular and trendy tourist area.

This is following a recent meeting with the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA). The street vendors were told to move their stalls from the sidewalk onto the road for a period of one week. The trial commences on September 12th.

The concept is proposed to satisfy everybody and BMA District Chef Wutichai Bunyasit said, “We want to return all footpaths to the people.”

Daves Raves – I think this is a sensible solution, so let’s hope it happens.

Thailand In Turmoil


Here we go again!  Thai protesters this afternoon have made a determined effort to march to Government House in Bangkok.  Although the Metropolitan Riot Police had (supposedly) set up a blockade, protesters easily outwitted the Thai authorities.

Meanwhile, the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) continues to fall amid fears of violence and speculation about another military coup.  Even though various Thai authorities state that there will not be another military coup, the political arena remains tense.  The crowds of protesters are mostly middle-class Bangkok residents, who are lead by the People’s Alliance for Democracy (PAD).
