We could do with Army road blocks here in Chiang Mai, tanks spread across Highway 11 facing south ideally.

RTP road blocks/covid checkpoints are a joke.  Traffic is detoured onto the service lanes while personnel relax in the shade of the overpass (above) as traffic roars past.

CM province's reported daily covid rate is slowly climbing with majority of tracing to BKK escapees.

Are you suggesting or advocating some sort of Military regime or Junta? This is Thailand not Myanmar. Calm down. It's individuals like Tim Weston who exacerbate the problem by gloating that he can travel from Phuket to Bangkok because he has had one jab. Sadly common sense ceases to be in abundance.

Think that is the same in many provinces also. The RTP are as always looking to make a  quick buck rather then look after the nation.

And this is supposed to be a holiday isle? What's next, submarines patrolling the waters below to prevent scuba divers sneaking in? Helicopters in the skies above in case of hang gliders?

Granted officialdom is trying to kickstart Phuket's economy in the middle of Thailand's worst crisis for a long time but the optics are terrible and hardly encouraging for would be tourists. If i was going to travel somewhere for a holiday the last thing i want to see is Armed Forces at checkpoints and the sight of Navy gunboats just off the beach.

I remember the Bkk protests a decade ago with the red shirts in Cm..I was driving across Iron bridge with a cutie on my motobike and a TANK came across that narrow bridge and I had to turn around!

Also had other bigger bridge blocked of as there were tire fires a blazing---amazing thailand!
