Are there Casinos in Thailand?

Would anyone be able to let me know whether there are Casinos in Thailand? If the answer is yes then please share with me the location of some of them.

Thanks

"No". That is no casinos in Thailand (officially) rather than "No. I won't share them with you." Go across into neighbouring Myanmar (for example in the North near Chiang Rai, at the Goden Triangle where the confluence of the Mekong River marks the boundaries of Thailand, Myanmar and Laos or in the South at Ranong, a popular Visa Rin from Phuket or Khao Lak)

Should be coming to Bangkok, Poipet on the Cambodian border is the place to go. Poipet is just 4 hours from Bangkok and special casino buses from to and from Poipet all day long. Casinos there also have first class accommodation.

Google it. Coming from Dubai you will have to get a Cambodian visa prior to arrival or at the border itself.

Except cock fighting at which you will see Thailands royal police partaking in as i did over the back fence at the hotel in Pattaya.

Also at the thai boxing in BKK rampant betting takes place, and i even bet with bargirls when playing connect 4 .

But as said above , there is no gambling in Thailand !

I didn't say there wasn't any gambling (its rife) but that it is illegal. Huge amounts have been wagered on the World Cup, leading to at least two murders, and the police can't keep up with the numbers they've arrested.
