Many of the red-shirt protesters who gathered on Utthayan Road in Phutthamonthon the other day probably didn’t realise they were so close to such fascinating destinations either.

    » It was a bright, sunny day in Nonthaburi. As we set off on a sight-seeing trip along the Chao Phraya, the prow of our chartered boat kicked up a refreshing spray of fine water droplets from the surface of the river.
