Where have al the food stalls gone ?

Recommended Posts

I live on Suthep Rd. Everyday there are between 40-60 food stalls set up along the road. To day 2.

I asked at one and the guy just laughed.

The 25th of the month is the day when they may not set up until the sidewalk has been washed down by the ampure.

Then by 10.00 the days set up is started, today only 2.

MeeChok plaza...no market last Monday and Tuesday, the usual market days throughout the year. Probably none today and tomorrow too.

They never have walking street markets on the days before Christmas and New Year, going back 8 or 9 years. This is to allow more parking for Rimping customers around the holidays.

Yup.... Many Thais go home to their villages/families a few 'special days' as NEW YEAR...

That is the reason for reporting 'Road Fatalities' (because the number of deaths are HORRIFIC) on certain holidays through-out the year..... After the holidays you should see 'most' of them return........ Unless of course our beloved PM chooses to move them off the sidewalks as he did in other areas previously.... My Mrs. had 7 members of her Family selling fried pork, put out of business in Bangkok by the PM's push to clear the sidewalks a couple of those 'stall sellers' who were put out of business had earned enough to put 3 children through UNIVERSITY.... first graduates in the history of their family...... I'm so sad for the 'working Thais

NOW with this present Gov't.....  Only the gov't folks and the already rich folks ARE thought of now days... NOT the massive numbers of poor who are out there on the roads dying this holiday.... Now you know why many of the food sellers are not there, and those who survive the trip home on Thai highways will re open after the holidays....

I don't know what planet you're living as you seemed to have not noticed that Thailand is on holiday.

And ironically the panel beaters shops are closed. :cheesy:

Yes, the most obvious explanation. Hard to imagine why it escapes the notice of so many as TV makes daily announcements of road carnage statistics as masses of people head home to spend time with their families.
