Much of local history and art can be learned through temple visits in this area. One-day trips are good choices because of Sam Khok's close proximity to the capital and convenient routes.

    Let's get geeky

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 20/04/2018

    » Whether you like it or not, geek is in. That's obvious from the plethora of superhero movies reigning at the box office and the TV series we follow and binge faithfully. And Bangkok isn't an exception. Geekiness is alive and well here in the Big Mango. That's pretty evident with the "letter" Major Cineplex released a few weeks ago that employees could use to give to their bosses to ask for the day off to watch Avengers: Infinity War (ours is already printed out and ready to go as well as our escape plan in case our boss chases us out of the office). Aside from that, Bangkok is going to show off its geek pride with a couple of events in the city. So ignite your lightsabers, produce 1.21 gigawatts, step into the Tardis, have your wands at the ready and sit in your captain's chair. Here are five events in Bangkok where geeks will thrive and fanboy/fangirl to the max.

    Igniting the flame of royal affection

    Life, Pichaya Svasti, Published on 26/10/2017

    » Throughout his 70-year reign, King Bhumibol Adulyadej travelled to countless places in the Kingdom, near and far, to listen to and relieve Thai people's problems. Not many people know his first visit to his subjects took place in Ban Pong district, Ratchaburi province, in 1954 after a big fire had ravaged the local market. That visit, which took the young king to see the people's grievances first hand, became an inspiration for the monarch to start his long, tireless and fruitful journeys throughout his reign.
