    Revelations in Convent

    Life, Vanniya Sriangura, Published on 19/01/2018

    » Soi Convent has a strange pull. Crawling with office workers by day, it welcomes drinkers and diners by night. At one end is a cloistered convent protected by high walls, at the other a hospital and a church, and in between a motley selection of an Irish pub, street stalls, cafés, bars, dessert shops, dining venues, a som tam joint and an all-girls school. Flanked by the gaudy lights of Patpong and the business-minded Sathorn, the 800m soi in the busy financial district has a discreet but unfailing, perennial charm.

    How did it start?

    Life, Published on 09/02/2017

    » It's hard to say who was the first tourist in Siam, because tourism as we know it didn't exist until a few centuries ago. Indian merchants sailed here in the 5th century, the Chinese came to trade and later to settle, and one of the earliest European travellers were the Portuguese, arriving in Ayutthaya in 1511. In 1680, Ibn Muhammad Ibrahim, a Persian, visited the land and recorded his impressions -- "All around us were trees that never feel the withering touch of autumn" -- while the first guidebook to the Kingdom was written by local resident J. Antonio in 1904. (Its most highly recommended activity is the shooting of birds and mammals.)
