    Tourists reflect on BKK bombing

    Life, Published on 15/09/2015

    » Thursday marks one month since the Erawan Shrine bombing which killed 20 people and injured 130 in Bangkok. While the investigation is still under way, it is evident that the impact of the attack on the country's tourism has been huge. The blast, plus a second explosion at Sathon pier, led 35 countries to warn their citizens about trips to Thailand. According to the Ministry of Tourism and Sports, 64.3 billion baht has been lost in tourism revenue from 1.3 million people who cancelled their trip to the country.

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 17/05/2019

    » After working as a seamstress for several years and losing everything in a fire, Supinya Junsuta, better known as Jay Fai, would go on to become the owner and sole chef of her eponymous street food restaurant.

The eatery has become a popular foodie destination for locals and tourists alike, who are eager to try her signature dishes such as her stir-fried noodles, tom yum and of course, the crab omelette. The veteran chef was recently featured in the Netflix series Street Food, Thailand being one of the nine Asian countries highlighted. We chat with Jay Fai on what it's like to be where she is today.

    A note on Thailand Biennale

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 02/01/2019

    » One recent morning at Nopphrat Thara beach, the high tide flooded the lower part of a strange, interwoven structure. Rising from the blue water of the bay, it looked like an island, a new, unmapped island of Krabi visible from this popular spot where tourists visit and board tour boats to outlying islands.

    A summer of fun

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 05/04/2019

    » Summer is here -- like that's not at all obvious. As the heat bears down on all of us Bangkokians, the temptation to simply spend these hellish days locked up in our rooms with the AC turned high (or is it low? You get what I mean) while we cuddle in our blankets and binge hours and hours on end of Netflix shows is strong. But that doesn't have to be the case. There's still a bunch of enjoyable things to do around the city despite the heat. In fact, they're not only fun, but they're perfect things to during the summer time. So stop being a lazy bum, get off that couch and outta the house, and don't worry, you can still have your ice cream. Here's a few summer activities to get you up and going during this heatwave.
