Meanwhile, elsewhere in Thailand

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

its strange, since the coup, reporting on the south has really died although the situation has not changed

was going to head down to Yala this week but was advised by friend there not to go so am in Samui instead

Soi Dog wrote:^ 1) Just as with the Syria situation, where people are being killed continuously every day for years with no end in sight, you become numb to it. It almost stops being news. Big events still get a headline, but the death or injury count has to be pretty high in an attack to get much attention these days.

2) I'm not so sure the bulk of Thai people feel very connected or patriotic about their countrymen in the restive southern regions. Plus, the violence has yet to affect the rest of the country, so out of sight...out of mind. And for quite a while now, they have other prominent problems drawing away media attention.
yep. things are real bad in the phillipines in mindanao as well, and also never gets reported on much

44 police commandos were killed in a botched raid there http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-01-29/p ... id/6055900" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
