    » Different resorts are suitable for different things. On the Phuket holidaying circuit, one of the most prevalent names you're likely to come across steadily is Sri Panwa, the pool villa spectacularly managed by the Issara clan. Its photogenic rooftop bar, Baba Nest, is packed with beautiful socialites that will flood your social-media feed all year round. However, there's another Baba that's also generating some buzz, and it's certainly well suited to those who would rather dance the night away than flex for the 'Gram.

    » Over the past few weeks, one particular investment move from our shores -- somewhat equivalent to Crazy Rich Asian's Astrid going on a haute couture shopping rampage -- has been the talk of the town. Thailand's prominent real estate developer, Sansiri, has just invested 2.8 billion baht to buy shares in six of the some of the world's hippest, coolest and innovative names: Standard International, One Night, Hostmaker, JustCo, Farmshelf and Monocle. It's a result of stagnant sales back home and Sansiri's strategy to offer an all-inclusive living solution to their customers, as their president Srettha Thavisin explains. To choose to invest in companies that are young, inventive and trendy, however, shows how the real estate giant has their sights set on the tech-savvy millennials of tomorrow.

    Claire Keefe-Fox on the historical fiction she reads when she's not writing it

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 14/03/2016

    » French-American author Claire Keefe-Fox was recently in town to lead a historical-fiction writing workshop at Bangkok Edge and to launch her latest and first English-language novel, Siamese Tears (published in Thai last October). Having garnered popularity for her books about a Greek adventurer turned prime counsellor to King Narai -- Constantine Phaulkon -- her latest historical outing puts readers in the shoes of a young Brit-French belle who witnesses the intriguing games of colonial powerplay between the French and British in Siam in the late 1800s. Revolving around events that led to the Paknam Incident during the Franco-Siamese War, this book is a blend of fact and fiction that comes to life thanks to the author's scrupulous research in academic books, biographies and French diplomatic archives.
