marina house and thailand election 2014

This subject is THE hot topic at the moment. There is plenty of information online about this subject to give a back-ground if people are interested. I am writing this today to help people understand how this has affected marina house to this point. In basic terms it has caused about 1 hour of delays on 1 day since it began. By Bangphlat standards this is actually quite a lot.

This subject is THE hot topic at the moment. There is plenty of information online about this subject to give a back-ground if people are interested. I am writing this today to help people understand how this has affected marina house to this point. In basic terms it has caused about 1 hour of delays on 1 day since it began. By Bangphlat standards this is actually quite a lot.

The issue happened on Sunday 26th January 2014 when people blocked the Early Voters from voting at Bangphlat District Office which is located about 500m from the top of our soi. As soon as our local council closed the office everybody left again. Since then nothing has happened in the nearby area. Historically Bangphlat has been left well alone as we do not have any government buildings (bar local government) and there are far more interesting locations for people to set up stages and make their point.

In reality we have generally observed that disturbances like this only have 1 effect on Bangphlat and that is that the volume of traffic reduces throughout the duration as people avoid travelling around the city as much as possible. The nearest sites of any significance tend to be Victory Monument and Rajdamneon Klang (Democracy Monument). It is possible to travel into the city whilst avoiding these sites by a number of small changes to journey plans. We are more than happy to help people plan their journeys to avoid these sites so they can continue to enjoy marina house and Bangphlat for what it is - a nice place to live.

We look forward to seeing you soon at marina house.
