While Bangkok, fondly known as the “Big Mango” offers an eclectic selection of dining venues and experiences, few or any can truly rival the unique and original concept of the renown Joe Louis Puppet Theater and Restaurant which is located at Asiatique the Riverfront. This restaurant not only offers an authentic array of traditional Thai cuisine for the taste buds but also a unique display for one of the treasured lost art of puppetry in Thailand.

Conveniently located at the front entrance of Asiatique the Riverfront, it is hard to miss with its contemporary design style and a blend between a casual and fine dining ambiance. There are various puppets on display at the counter to give a hint of what is to come as part of your dining experience. The upper level of the restaurant is making way for a new puppet theater for those who only want to watch the show but at the moment any full length performance is only available by special invitation at private performances.

The Joe Louis Puppet Theater and Restaurant started out as atraditional Thai puppet outfit that was passed from several generations back. It is now considered one of the national treasures of Thailand and under the patronage of HM Queen Sirikit of Thailand to revive this ancient traditional art form. This puppet troupe has won numerous international awards and accolades forbest puppetry performances and is recognized as a master craft in Thailand. Major performances are only available for private functions but you can get a glimpse of these puppets during a dinner performance at their restaurant. Each puppet requires at least 3 performers to manipulate the intricate movements of the puppet.

Man saves tourists in Thailand

Man saves tourists in Thailand sinking in mud

 

The incident Friday morning in Krabi province was caught on camera by an amateur photographer from Bangkok, who posted the video on his Facebook page.

Man saves tourists in Thailand. A construction worker on a fishing trip dramatically rescued two Norwegian bird watchers who were sinking into a mudflat in southern Thailand, lying down in the mud to allow the pair to use his body to pry themselves to safety.

The incident Friday morning in Krabi province was caught on camera by an amateur photographer from Bangkok, who posted the video on his Facebook page. The posting got at least 1.6 million views, with many showering the rescuer with praise.

The Norwegian pair, whose names were not released, had taken their cameras to a river estuary at first light Friday, but the mudflats proved to be far less firm than they had thought. Very quickly, they found themselves sinking.

A local construction worker, identified by Thai media as Chat Ubonchinda, was heading home from his fishing trip by boat when he spotted them.

First, he tried to pull the two out, but the mud was too thick.

After taking their belongings to firmer ground, Chat lay down in the mud and let the two lift themselves up by pulling against his body. One of them even crawled across his back on the way to safety.

“All Thais are proud of what you did, it’s great and no more words need to be explained,” Somchai Ouansakul wrote in a Facebook comment. “I wish all Thais would have such a big heart like this.”

Thailand Video campaign urges Thais to give up bad habits

 

1. Thais Tay (Thais Litter)
Thai people dump their garbage in rivers, streets, and any places with the No Litter sign.

BANGKOK: — From littering and materialism to inconsiderate driving, a series making fun of bad Thai habits urges people to end these brands of “Thainess.”
An anonymous video campaign takes on way-too-familiar habits that many still shrug off and see nothing wrong with it.

Self-parody is very healthy, both for individuals and for society as a whole. It implies recognition, which is the basic ingredient of change. I am encouraged to see this in the OP and hope that it becomes a permanent trend.
