Large scale events have a new stage in downtown Bangkok at SHOW DC, which has launched the biggest outdoor event venue in the city. Named SHOW DC Arena, the 120 million baht investment in a 31,790 sqm outdoor entertainment space that sits adjacent to the SHOW DC shopping centre, bolsters the retail complex’s event offerings which already includes multiple indoor and outdoor event spaces, and has more than 40 event days booked through Q2 2019.

The new open entertainment space can cater to a 60,000 pax capacity event with 1,000 car parking spaces, a rarity in central Bangkok.

“There’s huge demand for a large outdoor entertainment space in the centre of Bangkok, and SHOW DC Arena fulfils this need. Thailand’s events and entertainment industry is robust and we are seeing increased inquiries from organisers.

“SHOW DC Arena offers a large, flexible event space that can cater to upto 60,000 people and I’m confident that our downtown location in Rama 9 area, combined with the availability of parking spaces and free shuttle service to MRT Petchaburi station, will help make events even more accessible and attractive to attendees and organisers alike,” said Mr. Goh Soo Sing, Chief Executive Officer of SHOW DC.

SHOW DC Arena has already been chosen as the venue for several high profile events including the recent Chang Music Connection Musictropolis which Bodyslam and Potato headlined, and MAYA Music Festival 2018 on 8-9 December, which has a stellar line-up including global DJs, K-Pop and J-Pop superstars.

SHOW DC Arena can be booked in any combination with the 25,000 people capacity SHOW DC Oasis and 5,000 people capacity SHOW DC Garden to create an even larger outdoor event with a total capacity of 90,000.

In addition to offering the largest outdoor event space in the centre of Bangkok, SHOW DC also has numerous indoor spaces that can be used for many event formats, such as shows, product launches, parties, concerts, theatre performances and exhibitions. The large indoor Ultra Arena is a state-of-the-art performance arts theatre with VIP balcony seating and has a capacity to hold up to 1,000 attendees.

“Thailand’s events and entertainment industry is a significant economic generator for the country. Through SHOW DC Arena and our additional event spaces at SHOW DC, we are well positioned to support domestic and international event organisers, and will work with organisers and brands to make Thailand a strategic events hub in the region,” added Mr. Goh.

Fake Viagra, sex toys seized in raids on Bangkok street markets | The Thaiger

Viagra is facing stiff competition from the markets in Bangkok.

Police last night arrested eight foreigners and five Thais for allegedly selling fake viagra and sex toys during a search of 17 locations along Bangkok’s Sukhumvit strip.

Immigration Bureau chief Lt Gen Surachate Hakparn says the operation took place late last night and into this morning.

Crime suppression police and tourist police searched 17 tourist locations on Sukhumvit Road along with Kevin Harrington, a representative of Pfizer, the makers of the erectile dysfunction drug ‘Viagra’.

Harrington says that the fake Viagra was potentially dangerous as it was made of powder and dangerous chemicals.

The fake Viagra was being sold for just 200 baht a box, compared to 3,000 baht for the real drug from a pharmacy, Surachate said.

The operation seized 118 fake viagra boxes, 1,667 items of controlled medicine, 396 sex toys and 345 fake brand-name goods, Surachate said.

Just in case you want to know the difference between real and fake Viagra, or were asking for a friend, firstly, you can’t buy real Viagra from street vendors at a market! The packaging is also different.

by The Nation

A 66 year old man who lived alone and suffered from chronic ailments has been found dead outside a 15 floor apartment building in Bangkok’s Bang Sue district.

It is believed he committed suicide by jumping from the rooftop this morning.

Taopoon police were alerted at 11am that Charn Wanngern died after he fell to the ground in front of the entrance to Building A of Taopoon Mansion.

Police found a suicide note in the man’s room on the 15th floor. No foul play is suspected in the man’s death.

The note also had the mobile phone number of his close friend. Police called him and learned from the friend that Charn used to own a cabaret troupe in Silom and he recently fell and had been suffering from chronic aliments since.

Charn needed to see a doctor regularly and the friend had to take him to his hospital as he lived alone. The friend said he had a schedule to take Charn to see his doctor this Friday.

Police said Charn’s room was on the west side but he fell from the east side of the building so he likely went up to the roof and jumped down.
