    Heavy rains forecast for upper Thailand through Sunday

    PM says monitor weather reports, avoid waterfalls By The Nation Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has expressed concern over possible flooding around the country, said Government Spokesman Lt-General Sansern Kaewkamnerd on Saturday. Sansern quoted Prayut as expressing concern that many parts of the country could be hit by floods under the influence of Bebinca tropical storm, which is expected to unleash heavy rains on much of Thailand. The PM advises people to closely monitor weather forecasts and warnings from the Meteorological Department. The spokesman said Prayut is especially concerned about tourists visiting waterfalls and wants them to be aware of possible runs-off. The prime minister had also instructed park officials to monitor and warn tourists of the dangers posed by mountain runoffs at waterfalls and of high waves at the seaside.

  7. PM misreported over 3-month solution to Bangkok traffic woes, says spokesman By The Nation Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-o-cha had been misreported as having vowed to solve Bangkok’s traffic woes in three months, Government Spokesman Lt-General Sansern Kaewkamnerd said on Saturday. The PM was just issuing an order to government agencies to come up with measures within three months to deal with road congestion, he said. Sansern said Prayut did not mean that the city’s notorious traffic woes could be tackled in three months as reported. There are several issues making up the traffic problem, Sansern said, including an inadequate city plan, the on-going construction of mass transit systems and the high number of vehicles and motorcycles at 9.7 million. Sansern said the number of vehicles and motorcycles is eight times higher than can be properly accommodated on the available road space. The spokesman said Prayut simply ordered related government agencies to within three months come up with measures to reduce traffic congestion as much as possible.

  9. British Embassy Bangkok warns of the importance of having medical insurance Thaivisa is delighted to have teamed up with the British Embassy in order to effectively share messages to both British tourists and expats in Thailand. A fresh warning has been issued to expats and tourists about the importance of having health and travel insurance when staying in Thailand. The warning comes after the British Embassy in Bangkok revealed that many of the people it helped last year did not have insurance. An estimated one million British tourists visit Thailand each year, while according to stats released by the British Embassy in 2016, there are a further 55,000 Brits living in Thailand, including 10,000 retirees. However, many Brits are visiting and living in Thailand without insurance. Image: UK in Thailand In 2017, 50 percent of the people who required consular assistance after being hospitalised were uninsured. And it isn’t only tourists who are uninsured. In 2015, with 80% of British residents in Thailand over the age of 51 were found not have medical insurance. Furthermore, some expats living in Thailand mistakenly believe that they can get free access to medical care if they return to the UK, but this is not the case. In 2015, changes were made to the way visitors from overseas are charged for NHS hospital care. Image: UK in Thailand The changes also affect some former residents of the UK, including expats in Thailand who may now be required to pay should they have to return to the UK for treatment in an NHS hospital. You can read about the changes to the way overseas visitors are charged for NHS hospital care here. The British Embassy is now urging Brits in Thailand to make sure they have insurance and to also ensure they fully understand exactly what they are covered for.
