Normally, flooding is bad for a restaurant, especially if the restaurant is on a riverside. But for Titiporn Jutimanon, it was a chance to make money.
Her restaurant, the Chao Phraya Antique Cafe, is in Nonthaburi, north of Bangkok. The Chao Phraya River began rising in early October. But instead of closing in case of flooding, her eatery is making waves in Thailand.
Customers love the thrill of eating meals and dodging waves at the same time, said Titiporn. “Not only do they love the atmosphere and the barbecue pork and the view of the sunset … the flood became an additional unique factor.”
When passing boats make waves, diners have to move out of the way before the waves hit.
“It’s a fun challenge — you don’t know if you’ll get washed away somewhere while eating,” joked customer Jetdanai Boonrod, 30. (Reuters)
