A Video Explaining The Hoops To Jump Through For The Special Tourist Visa

The Special Tourist Visa

The Thai Cabinet has approved in principle a proposal by the Ministry of Tourism and Sports to grant a special tourist visa (STV) for long-staying visitors.

Visitors can stay in the country for 90 days, which can be extended twice, each for a further 90 days. The visa will cost 2,000 baht and the same again for each 90-day extension.

Those are the words from TAT, and it sounds simple, right?

Well, you’d like to think so but #AmazingThailand strikes again and getting your hands on one of these new visas is as complicated as complicated gets.

With all the hoops you have to jump through you might be left with the impression they don’t really want tourists to come just yet.

An infograph was widely shared on Monday that showed the application process for what it is – a nightmare.

Today we now have a video going through all the steps shown on the infograph as if it being on video format is going to make it any easier to understand and foillow.

Hilarious Moment Dog Stops Pal Climbing Wall… And Jumps To The Top First

Hilarious Moment Dog Stops Pal Climbing Wall

This video capturing the hilarious moment a pet dog dragged his friend down from a wall so he could reach the top first has captured the imagination of social media users who have been sharing it in their thousands.

The black-and-white pooch was clambering onto the concrete ledge and had almost reached the top when his ‘friend’ had other ideas.

Footage shows how the mischievous mutt nipped the other dog’s bottom to drag him back down. He then jumped onto the top of the fence and nudged the other dog – making him drop down to the ground below.



Resident Thanaporn Jantharat witnessed the helpless pooches struggling to enter her uncle’s house in Udon Thani.

She said that at first, it seemed like the dog was trying to help its friend climb the wall by giving it a boost with its own head.

However, it was actually showing its dominance by refusing to let the other dog climb onto the wall.

Thanaporn said: “It was so funny watching them interact like that. I think they must have been having a doggy argument over whose territory it was. It was interesting how much effort they put into their little tussle.”

Why Don’t People Follow The Rules Of The Road?

rules of the road

Footage shows motorcycle riders in Bangkok appearing to disregard the country’s updated road safety laws.

Government officials announced changed fines for a range of offences from riding on the pavement to failing to wear a helmet.

However, this video shows how the announcement made little impact, with riders and pillion passengers on busy carriageways travelling without helmets.

The Royal Thai Police said road traffic fines for riding without a helmet were now 400 baht (13USD) for drivers and 800 baht (26USD) for pillion passengers. Riding on pavements is punishable by fines of 500 baht (16 USD).

Why don’t people follow the rules?

Thai Airways Street Food Stand In Bangkok

Thai Airways Street Food Stand In Bangkok

This is the Thai Airways street food stand outside the catering office in Bangkok. Whether or not ‘Pa Tong Go’ fried dough can save the airline from decline is anyone’s guess… but there’s no denying how popular the 50 baht sets are with locals.

The stand opens at 6am every day and there are long queues stretching round the block. They’re sold out by 8am.

Thai Airways – which staved off bankruptcy after a court approved a debt rehabilitation plan this month – claims it generates 400,000 baht a day, or 10m baht a month from the stall.

Airline acting president Chansin Treenuchagorn said they’re also considering more stalls and franchises.

They’re gonna need a few more stalls before the Pa Tong Go plugs the 300 million black hole they lost in 2019… which was before the pandemic hit.
