    A taxing time

    Life, Pichaya Svasti, Published on 03/02/2015

    » Taxis have been in the headlines a lot lately, and most of the stories are not good news. From time to time, there are honest drivers who return valuable belongings and cash to forgetful passengers, but lately, a barrage of unpleasant taxi experiences has driven the image of this form of public transport to a new low.


    A social disease

    Life, Pichaya Svasti, Published on 24/09/2018

    » One of my favourite actors recently left this world prematurely due to frail health caused by chronic excessive drinking. It is sad, because Warut Woratham, once the country's No.1 heartthrob, had managed to quit drinking and opted for a healthy lifestyle a few years prior to his death, but the alcohol-related damage to his health had been done. Warut was just 49 when he died.


    Travelling towards neighbourly understanding

    Life, Pichaya Svasti, Published on 06/03/2015

    » In December, I expressed concerns about the bad reputation of Chinese tourists in Thailand and other countries. Unfortunately, problems caused by them have persisted and many Thais have started to react.

Days later, a picture showed a Chinese tourist kicking sacred bells at a temple in Chiang Mai. Many Thais were understandably outraged.


    Double pricing headaches

    Life, Pichaya Svasti, Published on 05/02/2013

    » Perhaps it is boring and repetitive to discuss double pricing. Yet new experiences have prompted me to revisit this thorny issue once again. Sad but true, double pricing occurs frequently in Thailand, and other parts of the world, and is either accepted or grudgingly tolerated by many people. To me, it probably depends on different cultures and regulations in each country or area.
