Kanchanaburi Skywalk opens, but closes after just one day
Kanchanaburi's new skywalk. The 150-meter-long, 12-meter-high glass-bottomed bridge over the River Kwai offers panoramic views over the confluence of three rivers: Mae Klong, Kwai Noi and Kwai Yai.

The 'Skywalk' opened on September 10, 2022, along with the adjacent Walking Street, Open Activity Space and Public Park, with an opening ceremony.

However, the newly opened "Skywalk" was closed in just one day. The reason for this was that there was a shortage of special shoes to walk the "Skywalk" in order not to damage the floor of the bridge.

Kanchanaburi Municipality has issued an apology for closing just one day after opening. In the future, they will start selling special shoes that can be purchased for 60 baht, and they plan to reopen on September 15th. You can even take these shoes home as a souvenir.

Business details of "Skywalk" are as follows
Business hours: 9:00-18:00 (closed 12:00-15:00 on weekdays)
The number of visitors is limited/permitted in units of each one hour
First Block: 9:00-10:00
Last block: 17:00-18:00
The number of visitors in one block is limited to about 100 to 120 people
Weekdays: 6 blocks per day, maximum 720 people per day
Weekends: 9 blocks per day, maximum 1,080 people per day

Pattaya's transgender show 'Tiffany Show Pattaya' reopens
One of Thailand's most famous transgender cabaret shows, 'Tiffany's Show Pattaya', has reopened on September 1, 2022 after almost three years.

One of the performers, Peerapong "Bee" Butakul, said that she was selling chicken rice on the street while "Tiffany's Show Pattaya" was closed. He said the show is back on and he's excited to be back on stage.

Alisa Pantusak, CEO of Tiffany Show Pattaya, said most of the bookings are from local Thais at the moment.

The Thai tourism industry has almost abolished immigration restrictions, and the number of foreign tourists entering the country is increasing every month, and the Thai tourism industry is definitely on the road to recovery. Cabaret is usually popular with foreign tourists, so if the number of foreign tourists who visit Thailand increases in the future, it is expected that "Tiffany Show Pattaya" will be even more exciting.

Thailand August consumer inflation hits 14-year high
Thailand's consumer price index (CPI), a key measure of inflation, will rise 7.86% year-on-year in August 2022, the highest level was recorded since July 2008, according to Thailand's Ministry of Commerce on Sept 6.

Attributed the rise in the consumer price index to higher energy prices and rising costs of fresh food products that had been disrupted by the floods.

Oil prices rose by 21.65% year-on-year. Meat and fruits and vegetables also increased by double digits.

The core CPI, excluding fresh food and energy, was 103.59, up 3.15% year-on-year.

During the January-August period, the CPI rose 6.14% from his year-ago level, well above the Bank of Thailand's inflation target (1%-3%) for this year. So the Bank of Thailand raised its key policy rate by 0.25 percentage points on Aug. 10 to curb rising inflation, but inflation remains high.
