  1. Nong Khai Man Arrested With Fake Passport Stamps NONG KHAI — Police have arrested a man in Nong Khai province who allegedly provided foreign tourists with fake departure stamps in their passports. The suspect, Chatchai Chaikhamthong, 40, was arrested at a parking lot in Wat Sri Muang temple yesterday in a sting operation, said Pol.Maj.Gen. Pallop Suriyakul na Ayutthaya.

  6. I know Thailand fairly well but haven't ventured out in Bangkok for a few years. I have three good mates staying in Soi 11 for about a week and would like to suggest a few night spots within easy walking distance. They are in their 60s and looking for something a little out of the ordinary having spent time in the PI. I seem to remember Sheba's in Soi Cowboy was quite interesting, but like I said, my information is pretty dated.
