At least 20 killed, over 100 injured by Bangkok Biggest Attack

Famous Tourist attraction destroyed in Bangkok 

A LARGE bomb rocked central Bangkok's Ratchaprasong area last night, killing at least 16 people and injuring dozens more last night.

Thailand's junta chief on Tuesday said authorities are hunting a male "suspect" seen on CCTV footage near the scene of a bombing that claimed at least 21 lives in Bangkok and wounded scores more.

"Today there is a suspect who appeared on CCTV but it's not clear... we are looking for this guy," Prime Minister Prayut Chan-O-Cha said, adding he was believed to be from an "anti-government group based in Thailand's northeast" -- the heartland of the anti-coup Red Shirt movement.


 Since 2006 Bangkok has witnessed repeated rounds of deadly political violence, flanked by two coups. Until Monday though, foreigners had rarely been caught up in the bloodshed.

The most recent coup in 2014 toppled the elected government of Yingluck Shinawatra after months of disruptive street protests.
Thailand is also fighting a decade-long insurgency in its southernmost Muslim-majority provinces that border Malaysia, which has seen more than 6,400 people killed, mostly civilians.

Prayut's comments suggest the investigation is shifting towards anti-government groups loyal to the ousted Shinawatra family, rather than the southern Muslim militants.

The Red Shirts are a grassroots network of the rural and urban poor, particularly from the country's northeast, that support Yingluck and her ousted prime minister brother Thaksin Shinawatra.

Authorities have blamed them for a string of small explosions in Bangkok earlier this year, a charge their leadership has strongly denied.

They were also initially blamed by authorities for a car bomb on the resort island of Koh Samui earlier this year, but police were later forced to backtrack and subsequently blamed insurgents for that attack.

While hardcore Red Shirts have been known to launch attacks on security forces or government buildings, they have never before carried out a mass casualty bombing.

Thailand's Islamist insurgents are also not know to target foreigners and have also largely kept their violent attacks to the three Muslim-majority provinces in the country's south.

Bangkok Party Shutdown: Confusion as nightlife scene braces for difficult weeks ahead


Those for whom Bangkok’s nightlife is a livelihood as much as good times are preparing to scale back their offerings on order of the police, however few seem sure just what exactly that means.

Owners of nightlife venues such as bars and nightclubs and the organizers who fill them with events said today they are scrambling to understand just what is expected after being put on notice earlier this week that, for at least two weeks, all operations must cease at midnight.

“This really came as unexpected,” said Matteo Lanna of Elektro Delikatessen, which stages dance parties at a variety of venues. Lanna said some of his events may need to be canceled but, like everyone else, he was hoping to get further information.

Glow Nightclub owner Gert VanSteenbergen said authorities were enforcing midnight closures but that “nothing was clear at the moment.” Anders “Outsider” Svensson announced his party there tonight will end at midnight sharp.

Even venues on RCA, which is designated as a licensed “entertainment zone” and thus should be one of the few places which can legally remain open until 2am seem affected.

A staff member who answered the phone at Taksura said its RCA location had been asked by police to close by 1am for at least two weeks while its Ekkamai location will shutter by 12:30am. The owner of several venues across the river who was afraid to use his name said he understood those holding entertainment licenses would be allowed to stay open until 1am while everyone else must quit by midnight.

Owners and organizers complain that while they were either directly “notified” of the order or learned of it indirectly, there has been no official public announcement and nothing in writing apart from what went out at a meeting with Thonglor police on Tuesday and through informal police channels since then.

Dark Bar owner Nodnuanwan “Nod” Tatong said she would be closing at midnight on word from police. She wasn't told for how long.

DJ Superstar Panda said his “Thai Break” event this weekend at Ku De Ta would end at midnight, while a number of venues said they were taking a “wait and see” approach, likely hoping for a last-minute reprieve.

Ku De Ta and Grease both said they were aware of the order and were ready to comply but were still trying to confirm it.

“We MIGHT be able to open later than midnight but have to play by ear … each day,” a Grease staffer said. “We are trying our best to get people early however [by offering] happy hours buy-one-get-one free from 7-10pm.”

Even the capital’s red light districts, which seem reliably unaffected night in and out by whatever crises gripping the nation, were preparing to go dark.

Nana Plaza go-go bar Spellbound announced last night it had learned from police it and other venues would need to close early, though adding more confusion, they indicated a time of 1am.

“Furthermore, the general closing time for bars and clubs from Thursday, March 5, 2015, will be 1am until further notice. A duration of 2 weeks was mentioned,” it read. “This is bad news for all party animals.”

Bangkokians tend to have more fun after dark, but with those hours become increasingly shorter over the years, midnight closures have prompted appeals for revelers to start earlier.

Organizers Duck & Noodle moved their Saturday Boat Party up to 6pm with a midnight finish and appealed to their fans to arrive early.

Elsewhere the giant Maya EDM fest scheduled for Saturday night on army-owned grounds will end at 12:30am.

Some seemed to take it in stride as the cost of doing business in an unstable environment.

“Don't worry, we will be there for you. Just come a bit earlier!” pleaded girly bar Spellbound in its announcement. “The benefit for you is: you'll get more bedtime… The show will go on!”

Chatuchak Weekend Market - Bangkok

Chatuchak Weekend Market
The Chatuchak Market (JJ) is one of the world’s largest weekend markets.
It covers an area of almost 30 Acres, is divided into 28 different sections & contains more than 15.000 booths selling goods from all over Thailand. You can imagine my face when I stepped out of the BTS train and saw this huge market…jaw dropping. The Chatuchak Market is a very popular shopping destination for Thais but has also become very popular with tourists. Thais from all over the country come here to buy goods for their local shop. Each day, about 200.000 visitors come here (30 % tourists). You can pretty much find everything there, from books to antiques to live animals and plants.

Yes, Chatuchak Makret sounds like a true shopper’s delight. For me, it was much less than that; not only am I not a fan of huge gatherings, but also the entire area was simply too large. As soon as we stepped out of the BTS train, the crowds started showing up. The way from the BTS station to the entrance of the market was maybe only 100 meters, yet it took us almost 15 minutes to get there. Viewing the market from above (from the bridge from the BTS station to the market area) still made it all quite clear but as soon as we were down in the crowd, our orientation got lost. I suggest that you go with the flow, because otherwise you’re just going to struggle. They’ll lead you somewhere anyway.

TIPS.

Chances of getting lost in the crowd are high. If you’re there with a friend, make sure you conclude a meeting point before.

Wear comfy shoes; you’ll walk a lot.

Drink, drink, drink…you’ll sweat like a pig so keep your water level high!

FACTS.

Opening hours: Wednesday-Thursday (Plants & Flowers) 6.00 am – 6.00 pm. Friday (Wholesale day) 6.00 am – 6.00 pm. Saturday-Sunday (Miscellaneous) 6.00 am – 6.00 pm.

How to get there: Skytrain (BTS) to Mo Chit station; take exit no. 1 and follow the crowd.

What to find there: Ah well, you’ve 30 Acres of pretty much everything you need (or don’t need).
