Thailand is trying to promote tourism – what a joke. Have you tried walking on the so called pavement from Central Park 3 Homes to the pedestrian bridge on Sukhumvit Road? There are cars and motorbikes being repaired. These are cars, vans, etc., parked and now the police have erected a 3M X 3M poster right across the pavement so its necessary to walk in the road to pass this as well as all the other obstructions. Who ever authorized this never walks anywhere and sees what problem they caused. Would tell my friends to come to Thailand, but I don’t think so. I would suggest a country that has some consideration for these visitors.
This may be the land of smiles but no one cares about the safety of others. By the way, also look out for the holes in the pavement & oncoming motorbikes.
