If gambling wasn't illegal in Thailand I would bet on Patong Hill having more problems in the not too distant future.

The newly cowering of the canal in front of Patong Hospital, forces the water downtown.
This fact is now hot TV news all over Thailand.

Mud wrestling time again. The area around the hospital looks just as bad flood-wise as before all the 'construction' started months ago. A proper solution needs to be worked out as quick access to the hosp. is a lifesaver.
