Where is everybody? Patong businesses suffering ‘worst high season in 10 years’

The Chinese and Americans stay at home or tightened their spending to save money in expectation of a recession caused by Trump's trade war, and the Europeans stay home or tightened their spending in expectation of a recession caused by a hard Brexit.

The lists of expensiveness are not very helpful.  It would be more use to state how much it costs to live per day for two people in various spending categories.  Foer example in Bangkok:-

1000 Baht.  Lodging House 400 Baht, 4 meals 600 Baht.

2000 Baht.  Moderate hotel 1200 Baht, 4 meals 800 Baht.

10000 Baht.  5 Star Hotel 6000 Baht,  4 meals top restaurant 4000 Baht.

I wonder how much you could get in London for 1000 Baht.

Korat News / Lone gunman robs Korat convenience store of Bt6,000
« Last post by Johnnie F. on December 20, 2018, 05:39:01 PM »

A lone gunman robbed a Mini Big C shop in Nakhon Ratchasima's Muang district of Bt6,000 early on Thursday, police said.


Muang Nakhon Ratchasima police were alerted to the robbery, on Sueb Siri Tawan Daeng road, at 5.30am.

Employee Kachen Yimthanom, 23, told police there were only two staff on duty at the time of the robbery.

He said a gunman, who concealed his face under a crash helmet and a mask, walked up to the cashier's desk with a gun in his hand and demanded that he hand over the cash.

Kachen said he handed over Bt6,000 cash and the robber fled before he called police.

I am pleased to say that I no longer have to wear a hard hat to get into my office on the 6th floor of IconSiam.  I went there today after a gap of a couple of weeks and now things are much more civilized.  I had a stroll round at lunchtime and even an extremist Mall hater like me was very impressed.  If you are into malls then you will have multiple orgasms here.  I noticed that the 6th floor has a nice riverside terrace complete with beer bar....I could easily get to spend more time here as opposed to my other office at Pra Ram 9.
