Thailand's sex industry gets plenty of coverage in BTIT Part 5.A Farang couple are caught filming inside a go-go bar with a spy camera and their equipment is confiscated. They call on Howard Altercation to help them retrieve their kit. Thing is, in the reporting this altercation, Bravo manage to show some explicit shots of girls in bars. It's probably the best promo I've seen for Pattaya in years but given the story is about not showing footage from inside bars, Bravo does a very good job of getting it out there. Bravo. There's more coverage of the Full Moon party and convicts doing life and even a segment on Pattaya's SWAT team. Yes, there is one. The farang training the SWAT team looks the real deal and it's nice to know what he looks like so I don't accidentally step on his toe anytime soon. If you are traveling down Pattaya Central road from Sukhumvit, look up the last soi on the left before the Carrefeur traffic lights and you will see the SWAT base. In the intro to BTIT it claims that 500 tourist police have been drafted in from around the World. Surely, the reality is they are farangs that were recruited locally. Why the need to make it more than it is? Have to say that of al the Tourist Police shown in BTIT, Linda and Louise come out with the most credit. If I get in to trouble, sorry an altercation, I want their TLC.
