    Life, Published on 14/08/2018

    » Thanom's ancestors lived in what was Siamese territory, near Bang Saphan district in Prachuap Khiri Khan, over a century ago.

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 23/07/2018

    » Haruki Murakami's books exert a strange pull that's earned him a devoted following around the world -- and Thailand is no exception.
