80 Kilo Croc

A Surin man taking a late-night leak got the fright of his life when he spotted an 80 kilo crocodile hiding under an outdoor bed with its mouth wide open ready to snap off his sausage.

52-year-old Korn got up at around 3am on Friday to siphon the python when he met a far bigger predator as he sipped on some water before heading back to bed.

The sight of the croc sent him screaming to his neighbours for help.

Members of the Sawang Jayatham rescue team were soon on the scene and rounded up the reptile in no time.

It turned out the crocodile had escaped from a pond on the other side of the village and went for a wander.

Dead American Found In Krabi Hotel

The body of a 53-year-old American man has been found in a Krabi hotel where he’d been staying as a long-term resident, according to local media.

Hotel staff called police and medics on Wednesday morning after the discovery was made when they went to collect rent and were overcome by a foul smell coming from inside the room. Upon entering they found the body laid naked on the floor.

It was believed the deceased, identified as Mr James Thomas, had been dead for around three days.

Staff told police he had checked into the hotel last March with his Malaysian girlfriend after becoming stranded in Thailand due to the Covid-19 situation.

He was last seen at the beginning of the week working on his laptop in the hotel lobby. His girlfriend had long ago checked out and Mr Thomas had been living in his room alone.

No foul play is suspected with the forensic examiner’s preliminary report stating natural causes as the most likely cause of death.

The body was sent to Surat Thani Hospital for autopsy and the relevant authorities notified.

Bangkok’s Biggest Soapy Set To Become A Hotel After Covid Killed Its Business

Unhappy Ending At Poseidon

Bangkok’s biggest soapy massage is throwing in the towel to become a hotel after Covid-19 killed their business.

The 11-storey Poseidon massage parlour on Ratchadaphisek Rd in the Huai Khwang area of the city boasted an in-house nightclub, restaurant and hundreds of luxury themed rooms filled with king-size beds and bathtubs.

Girls wore different badges according to their desirability with prices starting at 3,200 baht for two hours in a private room – with membership schemes for loyal customers.

However, despite the luxurious appeal, visitor numbers have plummeted since March last year when a travel ban was introduced and ‘high risk’ businesses were closed.

Poseidon did re-open but was closed for a second time at the end of December following the Covid-19 outbreak at a seafood market in Samut Sakhon province.

Dejected owners of Bangkok’s biggest soapy will now rip out the garish furnishing and turn it into a three-star hotel.

A source at the State Railway of Thailand (SRT), which owns the land and overseas the lease, said the Covid-19 pandemic had killed the massage parlour’s income. They now want to change their line of business to adapt to the new economy.

The source said: ‘Poseidon is on a large plot and their lease will expire in February 2024. They have requested a renewal of the 30-year lease along with a request to modify the 11-story building.

‘Currently, they operate a massage parlour business but the Covid-19 outbreak has caused a downturn in business as there are no tourists. They have a budget of 200 million baht to turn the building into a three-star hotel business.’

The transition from soapy massage knocking shop to a hotel is going to take some serious marketing efforts to prevent former customers showing up only to find the goldfish bowl has gone along with the hundreds of ladies.
