Hundreds of cameras unlocked ,

Bangkok is now a surveillance city

Bangkok – Unthinkable in Germany, no problem in Thailand’s capital: Bangkok’s city government now has a site And a related app (not available in Germany) is activated, on which you can control over 200 surveillance cameras! Now anyone who wants can see what is happening round the clock, in almost every corner of the city…

Officially, it says, “This platform is designed for the convenience of people to view map information such as traffic, floods and accidents.”

Privacy? Not a word is said about this. However, residents and tourists anyway had to live with the presence of cameras for a long time.

What is new, however, is that employers and relatives can now see (free of charge and round-the-clock) whether or not you are actually staying sick at home – if the apartment is in a dense network of cameras.

After all, shameful corners are not visible: many red light corners of the city have been missed. For example, places like Patpong or the infamous Soi Cowboy have not been filmed. Maybe it’s because prostitution is actually illegal in Thailand, so it doesn’t officially exist anyway…
