    » It has been quite a while since the last time I visited Sai Thong. Recently, as I noticed that certain photographs have been used in the Bangkok Post too often, I knew it's time to return to this national park of Chaiyaphum province once again.

    Young and active

    » This is an age when news and information (true as well as false, of course) is readily available. But despite the fact that your internet connection speed is not below average and you spend quite some time online each day, there are still certain decent things going on that you probably never knew about. Sometimes, the most likely reason you missed them is very simple: you're not young enough.

    Past glory revived

    Life, Pongpet Mekloy, Published on 18/10/2018

    » While millions of tourists flock to Tha Tian and Wat Pho (Temple of the Reclining Buddha) each year, a lot of Bangkok residents tend to avoid the area due to traffic jams and lack of parking space. If it has been quite a while since you've been to this old quarter, it's time to set a date for a revisit and witness the charming results of its recent makeover. If you don't think you can fall in love with this history-rich part of the city, come again and test your heart.

With 1,864 curves along its length of 200km, 1095 is notorious asone of the country’s twistiest roads. A rest stop like Pai is a godsend. Over the years, Pai itself has evolved into a popular destination for international and Thai travellers alike. The countryside setting and the mix of ethnic and international cultures make up the charm of this laid-back town surrounded by mountains.

    » Back in February, when a notification on my mobile phone alerted me about a budget airline's promotional fare to Okinawa, Japan's southernmost prefecture, I immediately checked it out.
