Bangkok firefighters on Monday 'soaked the sky' with high-pressure fire cannons in front of City Hall - a short-term measure to address the hazardous air pollution in the city. (Photo by Apichart Jinakul)

The government is stepping up efforts to fight the worsening, detrimental effects of air pollution caused by the fine dust that has blighted Bangkok and surrounding areas since late last year.

Authorities are set to deploy two aircraft with artificial rainmaking technology to attempt to create downpours in the east of Bangkok Tuesday evening, with the aim of clearing the air in one of the worst-hit quarters of the city.

According to the Pollution Control Department (PCD), various areas of Bangkok and its vicinity are suffering a huge volume of PM2.5 pollution particles that exceeds the Thai safety limit of 50 microgrammes per cubic metre (µg/m³).

PM2.5 levels in the city ranged between 70 and 100 µg/m³, according to readings taken by 10 air quality stations in Bangkok at 6pm Monday.

Surasee Kittimonton, chief of the Royal Rainmaking and Agricultural Aviation Department, said that, depending on weather conditions, rainmaking is likely to be conducted begin Tuesday and run until at least Friday.

Two rainmaking Casa aircraft will be deployed from Rayong airport, he said.

"The rainmaking will be conducted in Chachoengsao and it is expected that rain will fall in Bangkok in the evening," said Mr Surasee. "Rain will fall in the eastern areas, such as Bang Na, Sai Mai, Lat Krabang and Bang Kapi."

Meanwhile, the Royal Thai Air Force sent two BT-67 aircraft to Wing 6 in Don Muang district to be fitted with equipment to release a fine over affected areas, according to an air force spokesman.

Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha spoke on the issue during his trip in Chiang Mai after reports highlighted the risks to health that the fine particles can cause.

"Campaigns must be raised to promote the use of face masks and water must be sprayed in the areas where the volume of dust is beyond the safety limit," said Gen Prayut, adding that the causes of the problem must be addressed too.

The Public Health Ministry has been instructed to hand out N95 face masks to people in the worst-hit locations, Mr Buddhipongse said.

Standard face masks do not provide sufficient protection against such fine particles, according to the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA).

Bangkok governor Aswin Kwanmuang said he has teams working on both short- and long-term measures to address the problem.

The BMA will continue to clean roads, pavements and routes where the construction of electric train projects is under way as well as spray water into the air, he said.

"Construction sites will be told to find ways to prevent the spread of dust and people will be banned from burning rubbish or grass outdoors," he noted.

In the long run, electric train construction projects must be expedited to reduce air pollution, he said.

According to the governor, 10,000 N95 face masks will be provided to people in areas where levels of PM2.5 pollutants are high, including Lumpini, Bang Khunthian, Chatuchak and Ratchaprasong. 

Sixty military fire engines would begin spraying water in various city areas last night, including Silom, Sathon, Witthayu and Pratunam areas. This operation will run until at least Wednesday evening.
















TAT issues travel advisory on Bangkok’s air pollution

Bangkok, 15 January, 2019 – The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) is advising tourists to monitor Bangkok’s air pollution and take precautions when necessary as unhealthy conditions continue after the air quality index (US AQI) peaked at 183 in parts of the Thai capital.

It is common for winter low pressure weather systems around Asia to trap pollutants at ground level at this time of year.


Tuesday’s air quality in Bangkok improved to 154, which is comparable to other cities around the region. Seoul (184), Shanghai (174), New Delhi (164) and Ho Chi Minh City (163) all reported similarly hazardous air quality, while Kaefeg, China topped the US AQI scale with an unbreathable 471. Tokyo (117) and Jakarta (107) reported slightly better air quality.

TAT understands that the Department of Royal Rainmaking and Agricultural Aviation will attempt to create artificial rain over the city as early as Tuesday, 15 January to curb the city’s air pollution that threatens the health of tourists and residents alike. The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) quoted the Pollution Control Department as saying that the timing would depend on humidity and wind direction.

In the meantime, TAT advises that tourists should take any necessary precautions to ensure they protect themselves.

TAT will continue to assess the overall situation and issue timely updates as appropriate, while assuring all that the relevant Thai authorities are doing everything possible to minimise the impact of the smog on visitors from abroad as well as residents.

Key Facts

Bangkok’s pollution remained at harmful levels (over 150 US AQI) for the fourth straight day on Monday 14 January and was likely to remain for up to another month due to weather patterns, experts predicted. People wearing masks became a common sight in inner areas of the capital as visitors were greeted by thick smog forcing them to consider face masks to protect against dirty air.

A Newbie's Guide to Getting Settled In Bangkok

posted 9 Jan 2019, 23:33 by Happi Mess   [ updated 10 Jan 2019, 01:27 ]







Key points




Renting a condo: 
Make an appointment with an agent. Let them know what you're looking for. See a selection of condos. Put down a deposit on the one you like. Deposit = 1 month rent. This keeps it from being shown or rented to another party, pending contract drafting and move-in.

"First and last" doesn't exist in Bangkok. Rent is paid in advance and a security deposit, equal to 2 month's rent, which is returned at the end of your lease (minus any damages and outstanding bills). If you're renting a 20k, you'll need 60k to get your foot in the door.

Leases are typically 1 year for condos, otherwise expect a noticeable increase in rent for shorter terms and a very decreased selection.

Disclaimer: REALTOR licensing doesn't exist in Bangkok. You *need* to research your agent. They need to come recommended. They need to work for a legitimate agency. That agency should have a proven track record. Do not give money to someone without a strong reputation.


Setting up internet:
There is a never-ending debate on who is the best internet provider in Bangkok. In my opinion, they're essentially all the same. There's TrueOnline, 3BB, AIS, CS LoxInfo and more. CS probably has the best deal of the bunch. 20Mbps for 450 a month. You just need to give them a call and see if they are able to install in your building.


Paying Your Bills:
If you have rented a condo, all of your bills are paid at 711/Family Mart. Electricity, internet, cable. Everything except your water bill, which you pay directly to your condo office. If you have rented an apartment, you'll pay all your bills to the office.

Many banks also have apps which make bill payment easy.


Getting a maid:
Seekster or DO4YOU. 500 Baht +/- for a 2 hour maid visit. These companies also offer handyman services, in case anything in your condo ever needs repair.


Air Conditioning Maintenance:
Again, Seekster. You want to have your AC serviced at LEAST once every 6 months. This will keep your bills down. Unmaintained ACs are the primary contributing factor to abnormally high electric bills.

Get to know people:
Join the Bangkok Facebook groups. There is a very diverse group of them.

Bangkok Expats - I call this group the "middle ground". You will get answers to your questions AND get trolled into the ground. Be ready for both. Don't whine. Please.

DSBKK - Posts require approval. Group is heavily moderated. If you find yourself regularly offended, go here.

BANGKOK EXPATS - In all caps. Similar to Bangkok Expats.

There are dozens of Bangkok groups that are more tailored to specific things. These 3 are your main.


Fun/Different Things To Do:
Want to learn a martial art, whether for health or fun? Check out Bangkok Fight Lab (Sukhumvit 50) and Elite Training Center Thailand (Sukhumvit 30/1)

Check out Spin & Slice Tennis and Fitness Club (Sukhumvit 50)

Bkk Orchestra Concert at the Park happens on the occasional Sunday. The Bangkok Orchestra performs live in Lumpini Park. Bring bug spray.

FULL METAL DOJO is Thailand's MMA promoter. If you're a fan of UFC or One, you don't want to miss their next event. There is also the Kumite 3000  Prize fighting League.

There is a large comedy scene in Bangkok. Almost every night of the week, you can find live, stand-up comedy at RAW ComedyKhaosan Comedy Club, etc.


Transportation:
Forewarning. Taxis in Bangkok are a nightmare. When looking for a condo, try to stay as close to a BTS or MRT station as possible. Download Grab to your phone to avoid issues. They have a car, bike and taxi service. Use the code GRABBESTLIFE to get ride discounts when signing up.


SIM Cards:
Speaking of phones. Mobile providers in Bangkok are the same as internet but add on dtac. A SIM costs essentially nothing. You need your passport. Go to 711, ask for a SIM, get whichever. True or DTAC. Once you have a number, you can "top-up" by adding 100 Baht or more to your credit. Each provider has it's own mobile data package. You put enough credit on the phone and then enable your choice of package. Each company has it's own app which makes this pretty easy.


Banking:
Kasikorn (K-Bank) have proven themselves to be the most accommodating to foreigners. Bring your passport, lease agreement and a surplus of patience to a branch.


Job hunting: 
If you're a teacher, visit "Ajarn". If you're looking for anything else, visit "JobsDB".


Avoiding Online Scams: 
Never send money to someone selling something in any group via bank transfer or online. Never. Meet in person. Always.


Buying Electronics:
Visit Pantip, Fortune and MBK for phones, computers, games, etc. Both Tesco and Big C I'll also have a selection that will have a warranty. You're gambling when you buy from a market.


This should get you started. If you have any additional questions or things you think should be added to this list, please comment or send a message.

PS: Rent or buy your next home in Bangkok with BKK BestLife Real Estate. All those rumours you hear about real estate in Bangkok? At a minimum, you can avoid all that by doing business with us. And after writing all that out, I think you all can grant me 1 shameless plug.

All aboard for history Sri Mahasamut

The overall explanations of the exhibition are clear and concise and will help young students and tourists to better understand the history of the era. 

Another nice touch are the models of the merchandise traded including tea, silk fabric, ivory, |animal horns, deer leather and spices.

And, as you’d expect, the Sri Mahasamut also caters to the modern visitor with retail and coffee areas on the top deck. Cheers! 

>> The exhibition is free of charge and continues until January 13 at the River Park of Iconsiam. 

















About





Moored at the River Park of Iconsiam, the Sri Mahasamut offers a glimpse into the lives of traders during the Thonburi era
THE BRAND new luxury Iconsiam shopping complex is marking the 250th anniversary of Krung Thonburi and the legacy of its ruler, King Taksin the Great of Siam (1734-1782), with the opening of the Thailand’s first floating museum – the Sri Mahasamut.

After the Second Fall of Ayutthaya in 1767, the hero of the old capital and the only king to reign during the Thonburi era, 1767 to 1782, King Taksin the Great is credited with bringing commerce to life in this major port city along the Chao Phraya River.


Thailand’s first floating museum the “Sri Mahasamut Ship” marks the 250th anniversary of Krung Thonburi, the old capital of Siam.

The floating museum combines the very best of old and new, using advanced interactive techniques to offer visitors a virtual reality experience of bygone days on a real junk. The sensations are further enhanced by the constant movements of the Sri Mahasamut as she is jostled by the current and the wakes of other river craft.

The museum ship is modelled on the spectacular Red Head Junk, or Ang Thao Tsung, as the Teochew called it, and it’s a behemoth of a vessel measuring 50 metres in length, 30 metres high and nine metres wide with a total space of 1,800 square meters.

“It took five months to build the life-size ship, which is as high as a four-storey building. The Culture Ministry’s Fine Arts Department served as consultant, making sure the project was true to history. It has been a great experience creating the floating museum modelled on a real junk.

We started the work in Pathum Thani province but were told that with the level of the Chao Phraya River wouldn’t allow the ship to pass under the bridges. So we had to drag it to Bangkok and continue building it.

The junks used to have crews of 200 sailors but with the displays and equipment, especially the air conditioning, we can only receive |about 25-30 visitors per 30-minute round,” says Upatum Nisitsukcha-roen, chief executive officer of exhibition organiser Right Man and the curator of the show.

“Our research showed that the Siamese junks used for international trade combined the features of the Guangdong and Fujian junks. They were suited to shallow waters and had pointed bows. There is a shack at the stern and the vessel is surrounded by handrails. Trying to physically sail the Sri Mahasamut was very exciting. There’s no engine so the ship relies on the wind. Of course, we had an idea what it would be like but the real experience was amazing. The ship moved very fast and was very hard to control,” he adds.


The main exhibition area in the Civilisation archive

Inside, visitors are able to observe different areas of the vessel, each of which tells a different story based on the historical timeline.

Visitors stepping onto the deck are greeted by statues of sailors complete with the Chinese pigtails fashionable in those days. But the real journey begins inside when you |start exploring the three exhibition zones.

The first zone is the Captain’s Cabin and relates the history of the maritime trade, the building of the capital and its relocation, and Krung Thonburi as an international trading port. The video presentation explains the trading route from Southern China to the Chao Phraya River and to Bangkok Yai Canal using hologram techniques to trace the past.

The second zone is the Crew’s Cabin and portrays the atmosphere and life of the sailors, an existence without much comfort and totally different from the cruises of today. Sailors had to sleep in a tight communal space, often for several months for end. They had to prepare fresh water, food, and dried goods that could be stored until the next anchorage, a duration impossible to predict as so much depended on the weather. It is assumed that the crew used fishing lines and nets to catch fresh fish as an additional food source while on their journey.

The third zone is on the lower level and is known as the Civilisation archive. This is home to a biography and the initiatives of King Taksin the Great in rebuilding, a chronology of the wars fought to unify the kingdom, Thonburi-China trade relations and diplomacy, world trade routes, and the ship as a symbol of prosperity.

There are also hands-on activities for visitors to enjoy including taking on the role of a crewmember and hoisting a cargo crate.

Also displayed is the helm, which controls the direction in which the junk is moving. It too is very different from the controls of a modern sailing ship – more like just a hunk of wood – and gives an idea of what caption and crew had to contend with more than two centuries ago. Information about the junk itself is explained in three languages – Thai, English, and Chinese.


The exhibition demonstrates life of a sailor on board.

The junk is comprised of three important parts. The sails are designed to be able to counter the wind and are flipped to control direction. The crew can climb the batten to work on the upper part of the sail. The hull is made up of multiple internal compartments to help the junk survive intake of water and help it to float. And finally there’s the rudder, which is hinged. Holes are drilled into the rudder to buffer the water pressure and to sail well in the deep sea. Rudders were invented to save human labour.

The red painted eyes on the exterior of the bow are known as “miracle eyes” and stem from the Chinese belief that the junk is comparable to a fish and that by drawing eyes on both sides of the bow, the junk will be able to sail safely in the right direction.

Limited space and the need to provide information in different languages has resulted in the written explanations being small and difficult to read, particularly for visitors with poor eyesight. To counter this problem, the curator has opted for technology to showcase the maps of the trade routes and introduced a range of activities guaranteed to please.

For example, visitors can also change into various national outfits through Kinect and pose for photographs in the civilisation archive then share them while still on board to their social media platforms. They can also learn about some important places in Thonburi district that still exist and historical sites with a connection to King Taksin, which they can visit in virtual time.


The floating museum pays tribute to King Taksin the Great.

A large screen in this area shows a short video about the Great Warrior King, from the point when King Taksin broke through the enemy line three months before Ayutthaya fell. With only 500 fearless soldiers, King Taksin successfully attacked the Burmese and headed east from his Pichai campsite to find a stable base for building up his troops to win back the nation. His strategies to rebuild the country, the urgency of the royal duties to make sure the poor and hungry were fed and his trading skills that made Thonburi prosperous are also detailed in the film.

The overall explanations of the exhibition are clear and concise and will help young students and tourists to better understand the history of the era.

Another nice touch are the models of the merchandise traded including tea, silk fabric, ivory, |animal horns, deer leather and spices.

And, as you’d expect, the Sri Mahasamut also caters to the modern visitor with retail and coffee areas on the top deck. Cheers!

>> The exhibition is free of charge and continues until January 13 at the River Park of Iconsiam.

About



MahaNakhon SkyWalk



After many delays, the new owner of Mahanakhon skyscraper, duty-free giant King Power, has unveiled the building's 360-degree rooftop observation deck that sits 314 meters above the ground, which is currently Thailand's highest. Dubbed MahaNakhon SkyWalk, the observation triplex of three floors: the indoor observation deck on 74th and 75th, and the rooftop platform and a bar on the 78th floor—of which one of the highlights is the spine-chilling glass-bottomed platform that promises to pump up your adrenaline.

Ticket prices are 850 for access to the indoor view-gazing room, while the 1,050 gets you access to all three floors. To celebrate the opening, MahaNakhon SkyWalk gives a discount to all patrons: the all-area access is now B765 per person until Jan 31, 2019. Tickets can be purchased at the door.


King Power MahaNakhon is located on Narathiwat Road, next to Chong Nonsi BTS station. Visit www.kingpowermahanakhon.co.th for more details.

The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) Launched a New “Hello Taste Thailand” Guidebook which Aims to Inspire Foodies to Experience Gastronomic Tourism in Thailand

100 + pages free ebook online - see below














About



The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) has recently launched a new “Hello Taste Thailand” guidebook which aims to inspire foodies from around the world to experience gastronomic tourism in Thailand. The project features 10 different routes spread across six provinces, including Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket, Chanthaburi, Surat Thani, and Ayutthaya.


News Image
TAT has invited experienced gastronomic tour companies to join in with the co-creation of gastronomic tour programs, placing an emphasis on creating culinary experiences for tourists so that they can learn about cultures, arts, and food-related stories.

BANGKOK (PRWEB) October 26, 2018

The Hello Taste Thailand guidebook is available in English, presenting a new dimension of gastronomic tourism which can be defined as ‘the pursuit of a unique eating and drinking experience, including visiting food producers and noteworthy food-related places - together with tasting special dishes, observing production and preparation processes, or seeing how certain dishes are prepared’.

Thapanee Kiatphaibool, Executive Director of Product Promotion Department, TAT, said: “TAT has invited experienced gastronomic tour companies such as Local Alike, Siam Rise Travel, Black Rice and Friday Trip to join in with the co-creation of gastronomic tour programs, placing an emphasis on creating culinary experiences for tourists so that they can learn about cultures, arts, and food-related stories.”

The 10 new gastronomic tourism routes include:

1.    BANGKOK’S THAI WISDOM 
This trip invites you to follow in the footsteps of our ancestors and discover the wisdom of Thai food that has been cherished by both locals and foreign visitors for so long. You’ll get to go behind-the-scenes to discover what’s happening in the kitchen, as well as learn about the complex recipes and how Thai people traditionally cook throughout the seasons.

2.    BANGKOK’S ‘PATH OF FLOWERS’ 
Welcome to this ‘Path of Flowers’ one-day tasting tour of the Thai capital, where you will witness the beauty of the country through a variety of local flowers. Having been part of Thai culture for a long time, flowers are used for making a number of savory dishes, desserts, and drinks by bringing out the best properties of each flower. As part of the trip, you’ll get to both taste and try to cook some delicious dishes with the help of an expert chef.

3.    EXOTIC BANGKOK 
Experience the creativity of some not-so-typical Thai dishes on this ‘Exotic Bangkok’ route through the capital, with plenty of new and exciting tastes to discover along the way. The combination of talented chefs who hand-pick their ultra-fresh, locally sourced ingredients (some of which you’ve probably never heard of) with modern cooking techniques using new technology results in some of the most delicious and eye-catching dishes found anywhere in Bangkok.

4.    LAND OF THE LIVING - AYUTTHAYA 
On this trip, you’ll learn all more about modern-day Ayutthaya by sourcing local ingredients, cooking and doing plenty of eating! There’s also the opportunity to explore the old kingdom’s fascinating past, with a visit to the city’s popular UNESCO World Heritage Site, as well as a lunchtime sightseeing cruise.

5.    THE TROPICAL WONDERS OF CHANTHABURI 
During this trip, indulge in the richness the province has to offer through its authentic cuisine using local ingredients and cooked by local chefs. Many dishes here are one of a kind, and cannot be found anywhere else in the country. There’s also the chance to learn more about ways of the laidback Chanthaburi lifestyle by walking through a fruit garden, sailing across an oyster farm, and cooking with fresh produce right where it’s grown!

6.    TASTE THE MORE NATURAL SIDE OF CHIANG MAI 
This one-day taste tour offers the chance to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and experience a more authentic side of Chiang Mai at a remote community situated on the highest mountain of Thailand, Doi Inthanon. You’ll have the chance to listen to the many stories about how local ‘Lanna’ food is made, as well as cook up some delicious northern dishes of your own.

7.    CHIANG MAI ARTISANS’ ART ON THE TABLE 
These artisans also include chefs and cooks who are setting up restaurants, who use only the freshest local ingredients combined with old-age recipes and cooking techniques. If you’re an artisan in Chiang Mai, even the most elaborate of elements are essential to creating authenticity. This journey will take you to explore local ingredients of the north, learn how to cook native dishes, as well as absorb the art of making refined Northern Thai cuisine all over Chiang Mai.

8.    PHUKET’S PERFECT COMBINATION 
One aspect that many visitors fail to appreciate about Phuket is its rich culture and fascinating history. This two-day, one-night taste tour of Phuket has been created so you can experience it all through cooking, learning about new dishes and drinks - and of course, plenty of eating! When it’s time to say goodbye, you’ll leave Phuket knowing this island like never before – and wanting to come back for more!

9.    PHUKET’S CASTAWAY PARADISE IN THAILAND’S ANDAMAN 
In true ‘castaway’ style, you’ll be whisked across the water to a remote island that’ll give you a taste of islander life; here, there’s the chance to go foraging for wild ingredients and learn from the wisdom of the villagers known as ‘Chao Lay’. After picking your produce under the guidance of a local expert, it’s time to try your skills cooking up some local flavors and then dine by the sea with the sound of the waves forming an idyllic backdrop.

10.    THE WISDOM OF SURAT THANI’S TAPI RIVER 
On this two-day program, you’ll cruise along the Tapi River to see the true Surat Thani lifestyle, while learning from the wisdom and culture of the locals. With the close relationship between the people and the river, a wide range of tropical ingredients can be found from the sea, river, and the mountains - you name it. It’s no surprise why there are so many famous Southern Thai dishes waiting for you to try around the Tapi River and its network of canals.

Executive Director of Product Promotion Department, TAT concluded that ‘the latest English edition of the Hello Taste Thailand guidebook would offer a unique opportunity for millennial foodies from around the world to experience new and enhanced gastronomic-themed adventures in Thailand’.

IconSiam Thailand's biggest shopping Plaza Bangkok

posted 8 Oct 2018, 22:37 by Happi Mess   [ updated 8 Oct 2018, 23:22 ]



Opening November 2018

BANGKOK -- Thai shopping mall developer Siam Piwat opens the country's largest commercial complex on Nov. 9 in Bangkok, a $1.6 billion project dubbed Iconsiam that also boasts high-rise condominiums.

Thai conglomerate Charoen Pokphand Group and group real estate developer Magnolia Quality Development also are involved in the project.

The commercial and entertainment hub will include a department store operated by Japan's Takashimaya serving as the core tenant. The total floor space of about 520,000 sq. meters surpasses even retail giant Central Group's CentralWorld mall in the Thai capital.

Two luxury condo towers -- one rising 70 stories and the other 52 -- stand adjacent to the new mall.

Iconsiam could redraw the city's commercial map. The complex sits on the bank of the Chao Phraya River on the western side of central Bangkok, away from the Siam and Sukhumvit areas that serve as the capital city's main shopping districts.

Iconsiam's shopping mall will house many brands entering the Thai market for the first time. The Takashimaya store will carry 500 brands, 80 of which come from Japan and are making their debut in Thailand.

POLICE ACADEMY WOMEN BANNED STARTING 2019

posted 3 Oct 2018, 21:17 by Happi Mess   [ updated 3 Oct 2018, 21:21 ]





Report 



NAKHON PATHOM — Without explanation, the police cadet academy announced Sunday it will only admit men starting next year.

Authorities said women will no longer be allowed to enroll in the Royal Police Cadet Academy for the 2019 academic year, prompting concerns among activists that sexual assault cases may gain less attention with the decrease in female officers.

“It’s policy,” Capt. Worawut Sripakhon of the cadet academy said Monday morning by phone when asked for an explanation. “We’re not allowed to give any more information than that.”

Supensri Puengkhokesoong, a women’s welfare activist and director of the Social Equality Promotion Foundation said the ban goes against Thailand’s Gender Equality Act and could reduce attention toward sexual assault cases and other issues involving women or children.


“According to the law, if a woman is sexually assaulted, the police officer in charge of their case must be a woman,” Supensri said. “And cases about family and children, the police officers need to have communication skills as well as knowledge about human, female and children’s rights.”


Many netizens expressed concern that such crimes would be handled worse by insensitive questioning from male officers.

“Only policewomen are able to get the real testimony from the assaulted, and their stories of suffering,” Facebook used AorAe Jm Cop wrote. “It’s as if they’re raped again during investigation if there are no female officers. They would rather keep that suffering to themselves.”

Supensri said women who had worked to enter the academy for the 2019 academic year are also upset at the new policy after having spent time and money to prepare.

Facebook page Thai Female Investigators posted a widely shared photo of the report with the caption, “There will only be 10 classes of female police cadets, classes ‘66 [2009] to ‘75 [2018]. It has been the Royal Thai Police’s honor to admit female police cadets.”

Several policewomen contacted for an interview declined to give their opinions.

The cadet academy opened in 1901 and allowed female enrollment in 2009, having since produced about 700 policewomen.

Attending the four-year program at the cadet academy as a Matthayom 6 high-school graduate is one of the principal ways to become a policewoman. Two other options are to enter different pre-cadet training programs and to take another test, or obtain a bachelor’s degree and then a six-month training program by the Royal Thai Police.

Many netizens expressed disappointment at their dashed hopes and dreams of becoming future policewomen.

“So ancient. I feel sorry for the girls and women with dreams of becoming a policewoman,” Jittawan Konsertaemaineab said.
