There are no threads on this in the Khao Lak forum. That is why I posted it. We are leaving for Khao Lak next Friday.

This new development is very concerning.

It will be catastrophic for the local Thai economies if this becomes a regular problem.

Thank you for posting Linda.

We will be in Khao Lak in December and just read about last nights bombs in Hua Hin so checked in to see what was going off.

Hope everyone is safe.

Media are reporting two bombs went off in Khao Lak at 9.15am, and the market was severely damaged by fire overnight. The Australian travel advice also says bombs went off in Khao Lak.

Can anyone confirm?

Not everyone visits the main Thailand forum where it may appear that there are duplicate topics open. There is nothing wrong with having a topic on a destination forum specific to that destination and no reason why the topic should be closed. Indeed it is important IMO to support that as long as posts are restricted to that destination and relevant to current information.

Here is a link to video of fire at Bang Niang Market https:/…

So sad for the damage and loss of goods for the stallholders but Thank God no casualties.
