Any farangs in the red zone?

Recommended Posts

Have been living in Narathiwat for the past 8 months. Are there other BMs living in Nara, Pattani or Yala and up for a drink and a chat next month?

"Board member" aka member here in the forum.

It's still a widely used term,  "board" from "message board" = forum.

Well? Am I really the only farang living in the three Southern Border Provinces?

Have been away from TV for over a week due to some troubles here, but still awaiting an answer.

Actually there are five southern border provinces, at least according to SBPAC.

And Pattani isn't even a border province...! 

 

Anyway, some power poles were blown up close to my home and a man was shot and killed on his motorbike. Just another day in the Deep South. If anyone is interested,I can take you on a tour through the region.

Shame that the situation down south is in such a state. Luckily that wasn't the case some 20 years back when I worked for a number of years in Kelantan, just over the border.

 

Spent most weekends either in Betong (very pleasant and a nice drive via the E-W highway in Malaysia) or, more often, Tak Bai (over by the ferry and, occasionally, if missed the last ferry, by long-tailed boats). Stayed mainly at the Tak Bai Lagoon Resort (sometimes at the Taba Plaza Hotel). Very quiet location and operated by the Thai wife of a Swiss guy. No idea if still operating and did have plans for a revisit at some stage. But not really an ideal location now for a tourist trip. Real shame as it deprives the innocent locals of a good cash stream.

Stayed one night in Narathiwat due to necessity years ago. Never again. Muslim 'call to prayers' every few hours over the loudspeaker system installed on most main corners contributed to a sleepless night in a place where I felt I really should have been armed. Relief to get out of there...
