Social media users have voiced concerns over new commemorative 100-baht banknotes because they could easily be mistaken for 1,000-baht notes.

Popular Thai Facebook pages and groups were buzzing with photos of the new gold coloured 100-baht commemorative notes which users had received when withdrawing cash from ATMs.

The central bank assured the notes are as legal tender as the red 100-baht ones.

The commemorative notes were issued by the Bank of Thailand on Saturday to mark the Royal Coronation Ceremony of 2019. The front of the note depicts His Majesty the King while the back shows images reflecting the ceremony.

The 1,000-baht commemorative notes of the same colour have a vertical orientation.

Social media users were concerned the gold notes in poor light could easily be mistaken for the brown coloured 1,000 baht notes.

Dinosaur Killed In Khon Kaen

Tragedy struck on Wednesday afternoon in Khon Kaen when a giant dinosaur was killed after municipal workers accidentally set it on fire.

The giant dino had been living on Khon Kaen-Kalasin Road for quite some time but local authorities decided to re-house him in another part of the city.

A team of experts were sent tasked with the job of helping him move.

As they were putting their plan into action, a fire broke out burning the dino to death, despite the best efforts of firefighters to save its life.

A man with a metal cutter and strong winds are being blamed for the fatality.

Internet users across the country were in mourning after a post on Facebook with photos of the tragedy went viral.

An investigation into the cause of the fire has been launched.

Lonely Cats Get A Cuddle From Zookeepers As Covid Kills Tourism In Thailand

This is the heartwarming moment lonely tigers received hugs and cuddles from zookeepers after Covid-19 decimated tourism in Thailand.

Footage shows loving staff interacting with the animals at the Tiger Kingdom in Chiang Mai province earlier this month.

Since the coronavirus travel ban was put in place last March, the Tigers have had less human contact as fewer people had been visiting the zoo.

So to keep the big cats happy, tiger-keepers took them out to have showers, scrub them, brush their fur, and cuddle with them.



Zoo manager Pirom Jantama said: ‘A lot of these tigers are lonely due to the lack of tourists, if there are no tiger-keepers around, some of them start to cry and feel sad.’

More than 50 tigers are living in the zoo with different breeds including Bengal, Siberian, and Cheetahs ranging from seven months to seven-years-old.

Some of the popular tigers at the zoo are Buay, Bank, Chetar, Nammon and Namo, all of which receive regular cuddles from their keepers.

Beauty Pageant Takes Place In Front Of Empty Arena Due To Covid-19 Restrictions

This is the bizarre moment a beauty pageant was held without any audience due to Covid-19 restrictions.

Only the judges and some reporters were allowed to attend the 2021 Miss Chiang Mai pageant held last week.

Chairs were placed for hundreds of guests but were left empty as authorities fear the spreading of coronavirus.

The glamorous contestants answered questions and gave speeches to an almost deserted hall devoid of the usual cheering.

Even though there were no crowds, the event went live on Facebook so that people could still vote for their favourites.

At the end of the event, 22-year-old Pharmacy graduate Chonnikarn Pityaporn was crowned Miss Chiang Mai.

She said: ‘It’s still a special day for me even though there were no friends or family here to enjoy the moment with me.’
