– 100 million baht holiday scam uncovered in Thailand 
Thai tourists who bought package trips to Korea and Japan, among other destinations, have found out that they were duped out of at least 100 million baht by an operator who sold them online.  With agents forking out from their own pockets, reportedly, to cover bills, and most left without anything to show for their payments, an investigation has been demanded into the now defunct tour company.

– Temperatures could reach highs of 45 degrees this month in Thailand
Think it’s hot now?  Well real temps, not real feel temps, could hit 45 this month, according to the MET office, which predicts severe summer storms in some regions too.  The intense heat began around 10 days ago but as the ground begins to retain high temperature and not cooling during the night, so highs could hit all time records.    The areas set to see the highest of heat are in Isaan and regional government offices are being asked to prepare residents AND warn that simple thing such as wearing hats and avoiding the midday sun can prevent illness.

– World War II shelter tunnels discovered in Kanchanaburi
In Kanchanaburi, tunnels have been discovered that were dug by prisoners of war there over 80 years ago.  The new find has been confirmed by equipment found inside and are believed to have been built as a shelter from air raids.  The region, infamous for the vile atrocities carried out on foreign POWs by the then Japanese army, has in recent years, become a tourist area and they may well be opened to the public in the future, once confirmed as safe.

– Tourist falls into a coma after smoking marijuana in Pattaya
In Pattaya, an Australian who, according to his Thai female associate, had smoked two majauana joints before enjoying a walk along the beach in jomtien.. suddenly rushed into the sea.  Others finally got him to shore but by then 58 yr old Roy Ayles was gasping for air and passed out.  Medics were quickly on the scene but reports indicate that he is still in a coma, being treated at the hospital under the close care of the medical team.

– Investigation into Rayong construction site following crane collapse
The chairman of the industrial commission set up to investigate the crashing of a crane at a Rayong construction site, which saw employees lose their lives, has told the press that the factory project is Chinese owned, through nominee Thai shareholders and that construction, pollution and  employment laws have been broken.  Burmese workers on the site blocked all from entering until their employer agreed to a compensation deal for families, and several other facilities around the country operated by the same people are now being investigated too.

– Thai restaurant owner under investigation for caning staff
A local Thai woman has complained to the police and media about a Thai owned hotpot  ‘Moo grata’ shop owner who, according to her, CANED both her son and his wife by turning up for work late. It seems the son offered to take the majority of the beatings to save his wife, but now the boss is being derided on social media as police investigate.  Here, it is illegal to beat employees, even, on occasion, it is an appealing idea.
