    Why is Bangkok so quiet ?

    empty toll roads, no traffic jam on main roads, some Thai schools closed, almost feel like Songkran,

    did I miss something ? is there something going on ? no tanks on the street yet ?

    It's not beer o'clock yet. It should liven up in a couple of hours.

    No, they just can't have more than 5 pole dancers in any bar, so they will spread to all the bars. More for you my friend.

    Last time I was in a go go bar, they had trouble staying awake working three 30 minute shifts. Christ, with only five, they won't be able to even move after an hour. Hardly sounds worth the visit. Supply and demand will drive up bar fines beyond a reasonable level.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    I really don't see much change here. I was in Carrefour yesterday and the muppets were out in full force.

    I think some of the locals in my area have definitely been watching their bahts more the last few weeks since things started getting messy. The beginning of August I had decent numbers of local walk-ins and that has dropped drastically in the last 2 weeks. Luckily the farangs aren't scared

    Have you considered a "Timba's supports the PAD" banner?
