Hazardous Handrail Causes Internet Uproar

Social media went into meltdown over the past 24 hours after photos of a flimsy sign warning pedestrians not to touch the handrail on an overpass went viral.

The sign warned of possible electric shocks from touching the metal handrail on the bridge located on Borommaratchachonnani Soi 68 in Thawee Wattana district in Bangkok.

For those who can’t read Thai it was also written in English but so small you would need a magnifying glass to see it.

The Metropolitan Electricity Authority said the problem was not from their wiring but likely other cables coming into contact with the handrail.

Food Park At Big C Ratchadamri Is Dead Without Chinese Tourists

Photos of the Food Park located at Big C on Ratchadamri Road in Bangkok looking like a ghost town have been widely circulated on social media over the past 24 hours.

Of course, food courts are currently closed in Bangkok due to the government order, however, this has been the scene since last April.

Normally the Big C Superstore would be packed from open until close with thousands of Chinese tourists passing through its doors every hour.

The Ratchadamri branch was the companies flagship store making more money than any other in Thailand.

Lower Sukhumvit Is A Ghost Town

This was the scene showing many closed bars, hotels, shops and restaurants on Sukhumvit Road this week.

Like many people living in Bangkok, I was hoping the powers that be weren’t going to pull the plug on restaurants. Sadly, they did.

There’s a lot of people whose livelihoods are been lost. It really is a sad sight.

He said his duck has a name tag around his neck which also has a flashing light and his phone number, in case he ever gets lost. He has a remote control which he says controls the duck.
