    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.

    » Bangkok's buses are known to offer a Fast And Furious kind of ride. Years ago, the No.8 was voted worst in the city in the Transport Ministry's Facebook survey, due to the horrible experience. Despite a sudden change in driver and conductor behaviour after the survey was released, many public buses are still notorious for their impolite and inefficient services, as well as poor facilities, among many other things.

    » Transgender drag queen Angele Anang lowered to the floor as she was pushed around and thrown away by a group of masked men. Her wig was removed.

    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.

    Muse, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 26/08/2017

    » It's not often that you get to see austere ministers of various ministries, business bigwigs, Hong Kong superstar Ray Lui (better known in Thailand as Tingli), K-pop singers and hundreds of screaming groupies all in the same room. Yet all those differing personalities came together under the flashing glitz and glam of the Thailand Headlines Person of the Year Award ceremony last month at Bangkok Convention Centre, Centara Grand.

    » 1 Vive La France! From this month forward, citizens of Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, India and Russia won't have to wait 10 days for their visa delivery time. The French government has now significantly reduced visa delivery times to merely 48 hours in order to try to increase the number of foreign tourists following a dramatic dip due to the wave of terrorist attacks in 2016. This year, the country is targeting 89 million tourists from 83 million last year, and plans to bring in 100 million tourists in 2020.
