    Bangkok songkran agendas

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 12/04/2013

    » OMB! We have five days off in a row because the cabinet kindly declared that this year's "official" Songkran break starts from today until Tuesday. Say what you will about PM Poo, but she is so right in giving us a long holiday since we can't function properly during this kind of heat anyway. Anyhoo, that's over 7,000 minutes we're supposed to wisely spend relaxing before going back to the grind on Wednesday. And even though some shops and places in Bangkok may be shut during the Thai New Year, there are plenty more options for celebrating. Here's what we suggest you do and, hopefully, you may also find a deeper meaning of Songkran Festival (besides throwing water at strangers) along the way. Happy splashing, everyone.

This weekend alone there will be two niche markets – Million Bike Market for bicyclists and Pet Design Fair for dog and cat people. We have decided to help you diversify your shopping experience with our pick of indie markets. We can’t be held responsible if you run out of cash before the end of the month, though.

    The new Siam

    Guru, Published on 18/07/2014

    » During the political drama and mayhem earlier this year, we noticed that packs of thigh-high-skirt-wearing college girls and guys with too-cool-for-school haircuts had somehow migrated from Siam to other areas of the city. Now that “peace” has been restored (along with the awfully catchy patriotic song), Siam Square is back in better shape than ever with a brand new shopping mall and new hangout spots that have opened within the last six months. Get your folding fans out and layer on your SPF 50+ creams as we show you how to spend a day on the air-con-less side of Siam.

    A traditional legacy

    Melalin Mahavongtrakul, Published on 15/07/2014

    » Seventy-three years is close to the average lifespan for men in many parts of the world. But for Chaophraya Abhaibhubejhr Hospital in Prachin Buri, which marks its 73rd anniversary this year, this is just a drop in the bucket, the tranche of time it has taken for the first step in what may be a lengthy journey: its mission to revive traditional Thai herbal medicine in a society which has long cast off what were considered outmoded ways in favour of the Western approach to healthcare.
