Tourism along the border of Thailand-Malaysia is lively again

Tourism along the border of Thailand and Malaysia is lively again after the situation in the Deep South has improved. The media has reported that Malaysian tourists have crossed the border to take a trip to Thailand. They also use the services of Thailand’s restaurants and hotels in Narithiwat (นราธิวาส) Province.

Mr. Prapat Intanapasat (ประภาส อินทนปสาธณ์), the head of the southern tourism office, said the tourism around Thailand-Malaysia border has positively improved.

He said that Narathiwat is developing a new tourist attraction. He believes that this new place can lure more foreign tourists to travel in the province.

Tourism along the border of Thailand-Malaysia is lively again as opposed to deadly, but just only lately

Tourism along the border of Thailand and Malaysia is lively again after the situation in the Deep South has improved.

Improved?... uhmm... how long a period of time after the bombings, murder, or teacher beatings must pass before the situation has considered to be improved? 6 hours? 3 days?.... :o:D:D

"Well, no one was killed within last 18 hours and we can officially announce that the situation has improved."

NARATHIWAT, June 8 (TNA) - Five Thai Border Patrol Police officers were killed Thursday afternoon and another three were seriously injured in in a bombing attack in the southern border province of Narathiwat on Thursday.

YALA, June 4 (AFP) A man was shot dead by suspected Islamic militants in a drive-by shooting on Sunday in Thailand’s insurgency-torn south, police said.

NARATHIWAT (TNA) On May 19, about 100 villagers stormed into Gujingluepa School and took two women teachers as hostages, demanding the release of two men arrested the same day for alleged involvement in killing two Marines last year. Juling Pongkunmul, one of the teachers, was severely beaten and remains in a coma.

The media has reported that Malaysian tourists have crossed the border to take a trip to Thailand.

How many? 4? 32? 49? Any specific numbers?

They also use the services of Thailand’s restaurants and hotels in Narithiwat (นราธิวาส) Province.

wow!... really?... ya think? earth-shattering...l

Mr. Prapat Intanapasat (ประภาส อินทนปสาธณ์), the head of the southern tourism office, said the tourism around Thailand-Malaysia border has positively improved.

again... any numbers to support your hypothesis and assessment, Mr. Prapat? Or is it just a "gut feeling" based on wishful thinking?

He said that Narathiwat is developing a new tourist attraction. He believes that this new place can lure more foreign tourists to travel in the province.

Yes... with the likes of the 2 quoted news articles above regarding this Hub of Tourism.

This press release reads like wishful thinking on the part of some TAT flunky. Common sense tells one that it'll be years before the tourism industry in the Deep South really recovers, and that is after the almost-daily violence has subsided for a suitable length of time. Things may have improved to some degree in Hat Yai/Songkhla since it has not seen the problems affecting Pattani, Yala and Narathiwat but to imply that things are back on-track in Narathiwat seems absurd.

Sorry, but with gravest reservation, we're going to have to reset the clock for the period of time for the "situation to have improved" in Songkhla... restart it from 03:30 THIS morning... :o

Defence volunteer shot dead in Songkhla

Songkhla - A village defence volunteer was shot dead early Monday morning, police said.

Pol Lt Monchit Pengkaew of Sabayoi district police station said Samrit Nilrat, 41, was shot dead at about 3.30 am. Monchit said Samrit was found dead on a road leading to his rubber plantation with bullet wounds on his head.

btw, did we decide yet on what constitutes a suitable period of time before declaring the situation has improved?

Defence volunteer shot dead in Songkhla

The district where this occured is in the far south-east of Songkhla province, along the border with Yala. Point taken though.

Oh I dunno, at least the end of next week anyway... :o

Tour bus guide script:

On you left you will see a small crater left by a small explosive device. If you look closely you will still see some shrapnel around.

Coming up on your right you will see where a car ran off the road last week when it was fired on by someone on a motorcycle.

As the bus rounds the next corner you will see ..........

Just wondering whether this will have any effect on this amazing upsurge in tourism in Narathiwat: Bombs Rock the South Again
