The article reports on the surge in the tourism in Thailand due to a recent martial coup. Local and foreign tourists are drawn to Thailand to witness the tanks brought in to the country for the first military coup in 15 years. Go-go girls dancing around the tanks on the streets of Bangkok have been rightly banned by the coup leaders. The banning is a consequence of a group of 10 camouflage vests clad women posing with soldiers and tanks for shooting a music video.
