Thailand Turns Tourism Into Torturism

 

Eva Air Flight Crew - Special Tourist Visa Requirements

EVA AIR FLIGHT ATTENDANTS 2020

 

Thailand has announced its Special Tourist Visa requirements which includes extortionate mandatory quarantine accommodation prices. 

Recently a friend of mine paid 80,000 baht which is £2,000 for a 14-day stay in a quarantine hotel room in Bangkok. He was forbidden to leave his room, with horrible stone-cold food left outside his door. He said, “I felt like a prisoner and could not wait for the ordeal to be over.” 

Many people feel it is not only extortionate but an ordeal, due to the lengthy and draconian process. Most of us veteran expats know the Thai Junta take draconian to the extreme. You seriously need to think is this worth it?

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.

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).

Last night I had an excellent Cheeseburger at The Game Sports Bar & Grill which is conveniently located next to the BTS Nana Skytrain Station. This is one of the few venues still serving booze.

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.

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.

Bangkok Gets Knocked Off Its Pedestal

Thursday, February 27th, 2020

 

Bangkok has remained king, as the most visited city in the world for the past four years. But it definitely will not be this year. 

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, I wonder how this will alter the city visitor rankings worldwide. Asian cities such as Bangkok, Tokyo, Seoul and certainly Beijing, will undoubtedly drop down the list. 

The problem with travelling to Asia right now, apart from the fear of infection, is the chance of being forced to go into quarantine. Being left isolated from families and businesses, seems more of a concern to certain people. No doubt numerous people have postponed or cancelled their travel plans and you can’t blame them for playing it safe.  

Although the actual risk of infection is relatively minimal in relation to population, the media are having a field day! Those who are sitting on the fence may just be persuaded by media reports to stay at home. It’s just another excuse for the killjoys to say, “The end is nigh!” 

 

BANGKOK THAILAND 3 - Bangkok Gets Knocked Off Its Pedestal

 

Unless I am very much mistaken, the coronavirus will blow over like a passing storm and we will wonder what all the fuss was about. Do you remember the fears over SARS and bird flu?  

While we should monitor this virus closely, let’s listen to the experts and not the press or politicians.  On one hand, we should not underestimate the threat of the coronavirus, but on the other hand, it’s not a pandemic yet. We are not facing a zombie apocalypse!

However, I do think that Thailand’s tourism industry, will be damaged considerably this year. This looks like an inevitable outcome. It does not help the situation when the Thai baht remains too strong. 

Meanwhile, the Barmy Army keep marching into Bangkok’s naughty nightlife areas. It obviously takes more this to stop the mongers! Here is a YouTube filmed recently showing the scene on Soi Nana…

Great Time To Visit Thailand

Pattaya Beach 2020 - Great Time To Visit Thailand

 

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, many Asian tourists are currently not visiting Thailand. The drop in Asian visitors is visually very noticeable and the financial impact on the tourism industry is severe. 

Last year there were over 10 million visitors from China. One estimation is that number will drop by 80% or more this year. This is already having a domino effect around the Asia region.

When I visited Pattaya in January, I was the only Westerner on the beach, amid people from various parts of Asia. Right now, there is possibly a scattering of Eastern Europeans and the rest are probably from India. 

 

PATTAYA JANUARY 2020 324 1 - Great Time To Visit Thailand

 

Unfortunately, the Thai baht is still too strong against foreign currencies. This alone stops numerous farangs and alike from visiting.  I dare say there are a number of potential visitors sitting on the fence. 

However, in saying that it is a great time to visit Thailand because flights and hotels cost less now. If you shop around on websites like Agoda you will find some great hotel deals, especially places such as Pattaya.

Another good reason to visit is the airports, hotels, beaches, tourist attractions, shopping malls, nightlife areas and public transportation, will be much less crowded. If you like space it’s an ideal time to visit Thailand

Soaring Like An Eagle

New Year Update 2020

 

golden eagle - Soaring Like An Eagle

 

Here is my New Year Speech but I have to tell you in advance, it is rather different from when Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II addresses her following. Nevertheless, feel free to make yourself comfortable… 

This New Year 2020 has started well for me. Several people have contacted me regarding Photo Shoots and I can now see bright neon lights, at the end of an ominous dark tunnel. Let me explain it to you…

The past few years have been extremely challenging for me. Due to diabetes (inherited from my dear mother), I had to have three toes amputated from my left foot. In fact, I was lucky not to lose my left leg, according to the Diabetes Specialists at Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital in Bangkok. Looking at the positive side, these Thai doctors saved my leg. The good thing is whenever I go for a Thai foot massage I get a discount. Unashamedly, I have used my chop shop sob story to acquire hugs and kisses from some lovely dolly birds. Yes, I know I am a bad boy!

After having the chop so to speak, my mother passed away following a long battle with heart disease, diabetes and dementia. How she lived into her 80s I will never know, she had more lives than a cat! Due to a long waiting list, we had to have mum’s funeral just before Christmas. In addition to the pain and sorrow of losing my mother, the timing was awful.

Just when I thought things were getting better, my beloved Pedigree Labrador ‘Roy’ died during the Christmas holidays in 2018.  As my dear sister Jane said, “Bless his heart Roy hung on until just after Christmas for you.” Roy loved Ann and me very much; he was a very gentle and loyal dog. My Roy never even growled at me, he was a wonderful companion.  I named him Roy after my father who was a perfect gentleman and a very loving father. They were so similar both gentle and loving. Incidentally, my dearest Roy’s, both daddy and doggy passed away from cancer. I find this a remarkable but obviously tragic coincidence. Talking about dogs, if you are looking for a suitable family dog, then look no further than a Labrador. 

If you are not aware, I was the longest-serving go-go bar manager in Bangkok, completing over 18 years. This included Pretty Girl, Hollywood Carousel, Hollywood Strip, Angelwitch, Spellbound, Black Pagoda and The Strip in Patpong. In addition, it was me that opened Billboard in Nana Plaza for the Nana Group. As far as I know, I’m the only go-go bar boss with his own blog. As Sanook Sean says, “You were an exceptional gladiator in both the martial arts ring and the go-go arena. Most guys are just spectators.” That was a fantastic compliment from a self-made millionaire.  

To a large degree, diabetes forced me to retire from running go-go bars, but I also stopped for personal reasons. Diabetes is a horrible disease and I call it the silent assassin. This nasty bastard will sneak up on you and before you know it, you are deep in the stinky stuff! To be on the safe side make sure you check with your doctor. At least get your heart rate, blood pressure and blood sugar checked. If you can have an annual medical examination to make sure that everything is functioning as it should.     

You deserve an explanation as to why my publishing has been rather erratic for the past couple of years. Hey, now you know! Thanks for your loyalty, especially those who have known me for many years. Some guys have known me since I first arrived in Thailand in 1988 as a Muay Thai fighter.

Regarding my website, I do not know where my sudden motivation and inspiration for better blogging has come from but I like it. I sincerely hope you do as well. To finish on this positive note, I intend to publish frequently and with much more in-depth Thailand nightlife reports. Just like a golden eagle, I am soaring high in the sky and keeping my eyes on the world.
