Tourist arrivals at Phuket international airport and at two border crossings in the southern provinces of Songkhla and Yala have increased since Friday, when requirement for a “Thailand Pass” was lifted.

 

Monchai Tanod, general manager of Phuket International Airport, said that the number of arrivals increased to about 9,000 yesterday, up from a daily average of 7,500, with the largest number being from India, followed by Singapore, Australia, Britain and Malaysia.

 

Meanwhile, the border checkpoint in Sadao district of Songkhla recorded about 5,000 Malaysian arrivals yesterday, with many of them saying that they intend to travel to southern coastal provinces for vacations.

Flew into Samui yesterday and the plane was full of Europeans plus a few Thais and normal people.

Still quite by the old standards but definitely picking up.

All the Malaysian pensioners scrambling to get a hold of some WEED.

They've put up big notices at the border and airport warning Malaysians and Singaporeans not to take any weed back with them.

 

In Singapore marijuana possession can get you 10 years in prison, a $20,000 fine, plus a canning - more than 500g can get you the death penalty.

 

In Malaysia 50g or less will get you 10 years in prison, more than 200g and you're considered a trafficker which means a mandatory death sentence.

I never said anything about taking it back....
