    Life, Tatat Bunnag, Published on 11/02/2019

    » Although it looks like the PM2.5 crisis has subsided in Bangkok and nearby areas, it is still predicted that a slight increase in air pollution will return again by the middle of this month. Hopefully, the toxic haze should dissolve around March and April. Yet areas outside Bangkok especially in such northeastern provinces as Nakhon Ratchasima and Khon Kaen are still being severely hit by the hazardous smog as of now.

    The desolation of smog

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 25/01/2019

    » The first month of 2019 has been completely obscured by the hazy descent of smog upon the Big Mango and while Bangkokians are no strangers to pollution, it seems that this may be worse than before.
