Dave The Rave Update

Friday, May 22nd, 2020

 

Hello From Sunny Scarborough!

 

Scarborough UK - Dave The Rave Update

 

If you are not aware, I had to leave Bangkok, due to the C-19 pandemic and return to England. Just like so many people, the coronavirus outbreak has caused me to lose my business. I had no choice but to leave Thailand, after living in Bangkok for 22 years and repatriate to England.  

However, I do intend to keep on blogging, but I do not think there will be regular blog posts, as before. I am currently adapting to life near the famous seaside town of Scarborough in North Yorkshire, England. 

Until I get back up to speed, you may want to follow my daily posts on social media. I am active on Facebook HERE and also on Twitter HERE

Bangkok Declares State Of Emergency

Tuesday, March 24th, 2020

 

COVID 19 1 - Bangkok Declares State Of Emergency

 

Thailand’s Prime Minister Prayut Chan-ocha has declared a state of emergency due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

It will come into effect from this Thursday. However, an official statement as to what the conditions entail has yet to be announced. 

This will mean the Thai authorities will have unprecedented governmental powers. It is thought to include enforcing a curfew and putting restrictions upon domestic and international travel. 

According to the Thai government, the COVID-19 in Thailand has now claimed four lives. Until recently there was only one death. 

News Source – Khaosod Media

 

Prayut Declares State of Emergency Amid Virus Outbreak

BANGKOK – Prime Minister Prayut Chan-ocha said an emergency decree, along with a raft of new restrictive measures, will come into effect on Thursday. Speaking in a televised address, Prayut said the enactment of the 2005 Royal Decree of Emergency Situations is necessary to stem the coronavirus epidemic, which claimed four lives in Thailand as of the latest count.

Bangkok Covid-19 Virus Update

Monday, March 23rd, 2020

 

COVID 19 - Bangkok Covid-19 Virus Update

 

The Covid-19 outbreak in Bangkok has spiked, forcing the Thai government to seriously consider a lockdown. 

Bangkok is already in shutdown mode with shopping malls, bars, nightclubs and restaurants, all closed until at least April 12th. 

Recently, the Thai Army was deployed to disinfect Chinatown and Thailand was recently praised for their efforts by the World Health Organisation. 

It is the consensus from ground zero that lockdown is not a matter of if but when. With the Covid-19 cases rising it is more inevitable. 

NB. Covid-19 is an acronym for Corona Virus Disease 2019 

 

Gov’t Considering Emergency Decree as New 89 Cases Reported

BANGKOK – Emergency decree may be enacted soon to impose a lockdown of Bangkok in a bid to stem the coronavirus epidemic, government sources said Friday. The measure is being discussed just as health officials on Saturday say 89 new cases of confirmed infection were found, a sharp rise from daily tally in recent days.

Bangkok Coronavirus Update

Friday, March 20th, 2020

 

The Game Bangkok 3 - Bangkok Coronavirus Update

 

As you are probably aware, almost all of the bars and nightclubs are closed in Bangkok and Pattaya. This is to prevent the Coronavirus from spreading further. It’s probably wise at this stage but nobody knows how long the bars will stay shut.

However, certain pubs (but not all), can open until midnight. Three of them are The Game Pub (Sukhumvit Soi 9), The Oasis Pub (Soi Cowboy) and The Old English Pub (Sukhumvit Soi 55).

Bangkok & Pattaya Bar Closures

Tuesday, March 17th, 2020

 

pattaya walking street 2 - Bangkok & Pattaya Bar Closures

 

The Thai Prime Minister has made a flip-flop on his statement that the entertainment venues will not have to close. This is in order to prevent the COVID-19 virus from spreading further. 

Just two days later he has now stated that all bars and nightclubs in Bangkok and Pattaya, will have to close from March 18th until March 31st. 

Stickman recently said about the Thai government that left hand does not know what the right hand is doing and this just proves the point.  

 

Nana Plaza BKK Nites - Bangkok & Pattaya Bar Closures

 

No doubt this is a devastating blow for entertainment venues in Bangkok and Pattaya. It means multitudes of employees, including the barmy army of bargirls, will most probably be laid off with unpaid leave. 

One way around this is entertainment establishments that have restaurant licenses. For example, pubs with restaurant licenses can continue to do trade, which makes a mockery of the whole concept. 

There are two questions that remain in my mind. Will this soon include restaurants, public transportation systems and shopping malls? Also, what about the rest of Thailand? 

 

Pattaya to close all entertainment venues, such as bars, nightclubs and massage shops until the end of the month – The Pattaya News

Breaking: We can confirm that the Provincial Government of Banglamung and Chonburi have ordered, effective tomorrow, March 18th, 2020, that all entertainment venues must close until March 31st, 2020. The Pattaya News spoke with the Banglamung Police Chief over the phone this evening and confirmed the information.

Thailand Tourism Turmoil

Sunday, March 8th, 2020

 

pattaya walking street 2 - Thailand Tourism Turmoil

 

Thailand’s tourism industry is in turmoil due to the media hype over the coronavirus outbreak. The levels of panic among certain people worldwide created by the media has caused hysteria.

This is severely damaging tourism and also Thailand’s entertainment sector.  No doubt a number of bars, pubs and clubs will be affected, some have already closed as a result. 

 

BANGKOK THAILAND 1 - Thailand Tourism Turmoil

 

Stickman’s opening article in his weekly column is a collection of opinions and on the ground reports from foreign residents in Thailand. My opinions are among them and you can read it HERE

I still stick by my guns in my previous article entitled, Thailand Gets Knocked Off Its Pedestal  which you can read RIGHT HERE 

 

Thailand Asia - Thailand Tourism Turmoil

 

Thai Airways has announced over 12 billion baht in losses in 2019 and surely it must be as bad, if not worse this year.  

When this scare storm passes, I fear that the damage will be done. The unscrupulous media machine will move on to its next scaremongering campaign. Then Thailand will be left to pick up the pieces of its shattered tourism industry.   

 

Amazing Thailand - Thailand Tourism Turmoil

 

Mark my words, the media machine will have a lot to answer for regarding the COVID-19 virus scare. Let’s hope this COVID-19 virus soon passes. 

However, will the public become any wiser to their devious trickery?

Ten Top Tips After Dark

Thursday, March 5th, 2020

 

pattaya walking street 2 - Ten Top Tips After Dark

 

Back in Britain, I was a professional personal protection specialist. I have conducted seminars and presentations with the British Police Force for community safety.

Below are Ten Top Tips for general personal protection after dark. Most of these guidelines are common sense but logical thinking is often ignored when people drink alcohol…  

(1) Do carry enough money for the evening or have a credit card, as a backup. There are plenty of available ATM machines so you have no excuses. Running out of cash is not only embarrassing it can land you in jail.  

(2) Don’t carry valuables after dark or wear flashy jewellery. This includes your passport and extra credit cards. Just take what you will need to use that night. The less you carry the less you can lose. 

(3) Do keep an eye on your bar bill. Check what is going on it and be aware of the total. You do not want to rack up a big bar bill and not be able to pay it. This is why it is a good idea to carry your credit card if you overspend. 

(4) Don’t leave your friend alone if they are very drunk. You won’t forgive yourself if they get mugged or worse. Remember, there is safety in numbers, especially in a strange place.

(5) Do keep an eye on your drinks. It’s easy to slip drugs into unattended drinks. If you need to leave your drink, either finish it or order a new one when you return.

(6) Don’t walk in dark or secluded areas. Stick to well-lit public areas or get a taxi if it is late at night. Muggings do happen in Thailand.   

(7) Do have plenty of small banknotes to prevent being short-changed. You can easily break a few big bills at one of the multitudes of convenience stores. Alternatively, you can get a bundle of small baht bills at a bank.

(8) Don’t carry your wallet or phone in your back pocket. Pickpockets do operate in Thailand so don’t give them the opportunity. Consider wearing a money belt if you do carry lots of cash after dark.

(9) Do enjoy yourself; by all means, be happy and friendly. Just be street smart and remain switched on at all times.

(10)  Don’t ignore your intuition. Trust your instincts if you feel something is not right. Remember your ‘Stranger Danger’ lessons as a kid. Move on to the next entertainment establishment if you don’t like the vibe. It’s better to be safe than sorry and besides, there are many other venues.

Super Savers @ The Game Bangkok

Thursday, February 20th, 2020

 

Conveniently located next to the BTS Nana Skytrain Station you will find The Game Sports Bar. If you need me to be more precise, especially if you are on foot, it’s right on the corner of Sukhumvit Soi 9

The Game Pub has stood the test of time and is a popular place for resident expats, tourists and Thais alike.

It’s a popular place to start your evening before you visit Bangkok’s trendy clubland located on Sukhumvit Soi 11. Alternatively, perhaps you prefer the naughty nightlife situated in Nana Plaza and also in Soi Cowboy. You have easy access to these although Soi Cowboy is a bit further up the road. 

The Game Sports Bar has some great Super Savers and this is an ideal way to counter the strong Thai baht. Go along and take advantage of the special Meal Deal and Happy Hour.

Daves Raves – Check out the cool posters below. Cheers!
