Stranded on Ko Lan

I got off the pier as I realized the potential danger of the crowd pushing forward. This resulted in me being near the back of the queue on land. I finally got on the tenth (10) ferry and there were still more people behind me waiting. In fairness, they did not overload the ferries to get people out. But if each ferry carries around 200 passengers then there were a lot more than 100 P##sed off tourists.

The word on the streets were that the owners of the ferries didn't pay their brown envelopes therefore the cops didn't let them on the water. Once the owners rushed and donated the required brown envelopes the cops allowed business as usual.

The King was on the water, collecting a new Azimut 77S luxury yacht at Sattahip.

Highway and train services were also put on hold for several hours

Yep I  saw all the police out on the Sukhumvit road ( Jomtien) about midday..went to pick the kid up from school at 4pm  police still there thought that was very strange then they stopped all traffic and a  big fleet of Yellow cars came through accompanied by many police cars and 2 ambulances...no sirens just flashing lights.

Later that evening my neighbour who works at the marina said about the yacht.

Just found one article in Thai (prachathai).

And member @gomangosteen hits the nail.

"Special cruise control" aka all shut down.

"picking up an AZIMUT 77S yacht"

When the King's daughter went cycling on our beach road in Rayong it would be closed down for about 2 hours, all the soi dogs chased off and none of the police had their sidearms. It was a great show.
