    Life, John Clewley, Published on 19/09/2017

    Life, Apipar Norapoompipat, Published on 21/07/2017

    » Nathan Bartling, aka "My Mate Nate", is a hero to some and a low-life to many.

The whole event may seem like an overreaction, but this hasn't been the first time that the 24-year-old American has angered locals and expats due to his juvenile stunts.

    If memory serves

    B Magazine, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 14/05/2017

    » Something strange happens to people who have been around for some time and adopted a certain taste for the past. At times, it could be so bad that may make them either nostalgic or fussy -- maybe both at the same time. They can get depressed thinking about the fact that nowadays Thai food doesn't taste the same as it used to. Those bygone dishes may look the same, perhaps slightly different, but they simply don't taste the same. Such a disappointment is hard to swallow.

    How did it start?

    Life, Published on 09/02/2017

    » It's hard to say who was the first tourist in Siam, because tourism as we know it didn't exist until a few centuries ago. Indian merchants sailed here in the 5th century, the Chinese came to trade and later to settle, and one of the earliest European travellers were the Portuguese, arriving in Ayutthaya in 1511. In 1680, Ibn Muhammad Ibrahim, a Persian, visited the land and recorded his impressions -- "All around us were trees that never feel the withering touch of autumn" -- while the first guidebook to the Kingdom was written by local resident J. Antonio in 1904. (Its most highly recommended activity is the shooting of birds and mammals.)
