"Don't let foreigners sell at Khao San - only Thais can do that", Bangkok governor tells minions

Bangkok governor Gen Asawin Kwanmuang has told his staff to look again at plans to revitalize Khao San road and turn it into a semi "Walking Street".

 

But one of the areas that he insists on is that there will be no foreigners taking Thai jobs by selling in pitches on the street, reported Daily News.

 

The governor - installed under Article 44 laws by prime minister Prayut Chan-Ocha in 2016 - was speaking after his deputies and the Phra Nakorn district presented plans for the new Khao San. 

 

He wants to see more details about times the road will be opened and closed and when and how a proposed automatic roof will operate. 

 

He also wants to see further discussion on the 88 million baht budget proposed for the scheme. 

 

He is also keen to ensure that, apart from the no foreigner rule, only one pitch is given to each trader and that there is no sub-letting of pitches. 

 

It has been suggested that the road can recover its "tourist landmark" status by turning it into a kind of Walking Street with a one lane road  that would satisfy both visitors and traders alike and provide some form of access.

But foreigners are welcome to spend their money in Bangkok markets while running the risk of being gunned down by scumbag punks in tribal war clashes?

That is what it was: vital and a walking street.  Now it is neither.  More mind numbing antics.

Are there not laws already in place that state what business foreigners are not allowed to engage in ?   The BK governor, who did not know sex was carrying on in Lumpini park, wants to interpret the law regarding what foreigners can and cannot do and where.   The man has no filter between all that air that fills his skull and his mouth.  That is the problem in Thailand.  Every official wants to be judge and jury.

Tyrants need enemies. That's the only way they can maintain power. What better way than to get stupid people on your side than convince them to victimize the foreigners who already have few rights anyway.

Police seized Bt25million worth of counterfeit goods carrying major brand labels in a raid of the largest night bazaar in Nakhon Ratchasima on Monday night.

 

No foreigners selling stuff at these markets; guess who? LOL.

Always picking at foreigners ? In fact foreigners should plainly boycott Thailand...it may then give some locals a moment to think and re consider their views on foreigners and their money !

Brain washed racist dead beats. How long can they keep brain washing the masses of the made up evils of the foreigner.

It has to be the 3" thing. There is no other explination. Perhaps its intimidation by iq?

Knowledge is terrifying to Thais. They cant think for themselves. They can tell you all day long they do though. Its immensely entertaining.

As can witnessed all over Europe, Thais (temporarily on a tourist visa) sell Xmas decorations which they made in Thailand and shipped to Europe. A classic is a fairly big booth selling Thai candles inside Zurich's main railway station with tens of thousands of passengers passing by. The Thai staff there said, that this would be their only activity in the year and they would sell those (Xmas, scented, carved, god-knows-what) candles like hot cakes and, in 2016, two 20' containers full.

Honestly, do you think that this had an impact on the Swiss GDP? Depending on what, where and how they sell, apply common sense - before talking to the minions about those ugly bad aliens making Thai life difficult 😉

How is this racist? Is Thai a race or a nationality?

A lot of the staff at these stalls are Burmese, a lot of Nepali too.  Arrangements have been made.

I guess the Thais like paying lower wages.  Maybe spoken English is better as well.

The signs are interesting.  My area has few signs like this after another department 'Thai Disease Control' came along and said they were not allowed as it might encourage people to drink!

But the busiest most famous tourist street in Thailand has not been noticed yet.

kill kao san  the most disgusting street in  bkk 

You know nothing of disgusting.  There are streets in Bangkok that are teaming with rats and are near Cholera infested water.  Some building are old and not maintained.  So what ?  Why do you care ? If you do not like, don't go there.  BMA and that inept Bangkok Governor ruined it for Thais and foreigners.  That is modern day Bangkok.  The army wants pretty malls that sell Gucci bags.  How dull and un-Thai of them.  Your statement  is the most disgusting I have experienced today.

Bye bye Khao San road, soon only memories left. Not that I will miss it. Backpackers will look for other destinations.

I have heard the place lost its reputation with backpackers and is pretty quiet now.  hard to get a reputation back after it is lost.

The old KSR was great, travellers meeting  place With stories and advice of where to go and transport  links,  a mine of information. Rambutin was also good. Surprised a new area hasn't taken over which is what usually happens when somewhere becomes too expensive  and commercialised.

If it ain't broke don't fix it.  Wouldn't be any need to recover if they just left things  alone

Very true, but then they would have to think of other ways to get their hands on this........
