    The Back Passage has been cleared

    The Back Passage was the lane that went from Bangla Rd at the Sansabai end and came out at the Parrot Bar, passing a few LB bars, Chiang Rai Restaurant, No1 Seafood restaurant as well as some others. No idea what is to be built, but it is a big peice of land.

    Salathai end of Soi Sawatdirak is now a 2 storey curvaceous blue building with underground carpark and round windows. Some restaurants have moved in the front. The job was delayed by a fire about a year back..
    Soi Dongtan is one of those surf machine places like at Kata Beach at front and open , and a designer hotel at back now being built. North of that is 2 more smaller designer hotels and a backpackers.......

    I dont think anything is happening with Gonzo or Crocodile ... amazing really that they chose to send away their rental base and then make nothing at all from the land..

    Brian could have added that the small walking street behind the curved roof opposite ( in the pic ) and behind Tiger 2 has also been LEVELLED !
    It had been designed to look like a brightly coloured Sino_Phuket town street and it lead thru to Ratty Tits ... I reckon all the buildings alaong it were only there 6 years at most.

    Is this the block that was being used as a carpark by tuktuk drivers?
    Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

    Are you thinking of Soi San Sabai? This is behind No 6 Restaurant, which in Photo 1 is about where the long arm Komatsu digger is sorting out the scrap.

    So what area did they knock down?

    Just the Moulin Rouge complex, that had beer bars, and lady boy bars (I think Cocktails and Dreams), and a few others further back plus a hair salon and a few Thai food places. Or did they take down the Tao area as well which had Belvedere (old Seduction Night Club before it moved)... Plus all the Thai Food places that would come out across from the C + N Hotel side street (opposite side).

    So basically there's an empty lot between Old (New) Tiger and the Rock Hard Go-Go building, correct?
    Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.

    I think TAO is the white building in Pic 2
