    Crab pulling in Cha-am

    Life, Pichaya Svasti, Published on 27/01/2012

    » Cha-am in Phetchaburi province is a beach town whose many local fishermen are keen at catching blue crabs. Among the most famous groups are the fishermen of Ban Klong Thian and Saphan Hin, who catch blue crabs from the Saphan Hin canal and keep their crab-filled nets submerged in water to ensure freshness. So when buyers come to purchase the crabs, the fishermen simply pull the nets up from the canal and take out the catch. Indeed, this so-called "crab pulling" practice makes Cha-am's crabmeat highly renowned for its freshness and good taste.

    Temple tourism resurges after flood

    Life, Pichaya Svasti, Published on 09/02/2012

    » At weekends, Wat Phananchoeng Worawihan in Ayutthaya province is still crowded with Thai and foreign worshippers and tourists all day after last year's big flood. Hundreds of people were spotted paying respect to the presiding Buddha statue, Phra Buddhatrairattananayok, during the half an hour we spent there on a recent trip. The situation was similar at eight other temples in Ayutthaya and two neighbouring provinces we visited. Visiting temples in flood-hit areas is an opportunity for us to learn how many temples coped with the disaster and why a few were spared by the floodwater.
