  1. I am sure that Chinese don't make up 80% of the visitors, so there must be another reason. Intelligence, or lack of it is the first thing that comes to mind. Not understanding the dangers, and swimming in dangerous places and times is most likely. Not sure what the Thai authorities can do about solving stupidity.
  2. I share your suspicions and the devil as they say is in the details. There was a lot of detail in his original story, including a certain french person, who has figured in many a dark tale coming out of Pattaya police. I am wondering how all of that detail has suddenly been found to be spurious? 40K refund and a pep talk perhaps?

    Five emergency lanes now in use in Bangkok

    They are supposed to move aside to make way when there is an ambulance behind them already, but that hasn't been working out so well has it? Ignorant drivers are ignorant drivers and sadly, I suspect a few lines painted on the road are not going to solve that. Fair play to them for trying something, but this country's roads are just screaming out for serious law enforcement, which again sadly, doesn't look like happening any time soon.
  4. Greed, going by the name capitalism makes the world go round, but will probably end up being its undoing too. The wealthy are seriously outnumbered and the day is bound to come when the majority have had enough. There is no excuse in this day and age for people to be living below the poverty line, especially in so called developed countries.

    North Pattaya beach now clean

    That might have something to do with the price some chair and umbrella renters have been known to try to charge you, your average Indian could buy a set of six for back home. Thanks Balo for the heads up on the beach that end.
  6. Well, I think I know how I will be getting home from the pub in future then.
  7. Quite possibly. If the pilot was ready to land in China or Mongolia, then Russia would be a quite likely destination. Whatever drama he may have been looking at when he got home, now appears to have got a whole lot worse. Fair play to the passengers for stepping in when the crew were clearly unable to deal with it on their own. This is the reason why many airlines will not carry people who are being deported.
