    Re: Facts and News from/about Kingdom of Thailand

    Today, October 23rd, is Memorial Day for King Chulalongkorn.



    I took this photograph in December last year; today the statue will be bestowed with garlands.

        The Royal Barges are being readied for a new Royal Barge Ceremony in Bangkok in early November... wish I could be there!

        The Supannahong Royal Barge:

          Interesting story about Thailand, and how Thai's look at death:

            Today is World AIDS Day, so an appropriate time to post this photo I took of a restaurant in the north of Thailand.

            Here is a link to an article in the Bangkok Post from earlier this month that tells you more.

              .... and just to have it said, the Cabbages and Condoms restaurant serves a delicious plate of fried rice to me about 8-9 years ago!

                  More in the news today about plans to get a Formula 1 race on the streets of Bangkok.
                  Here's just a couple of links:

                  http://www.espn.co.uk/f1/motorsport/story/106736.html

                  It won't be without controversy, and I have to admit Singapore is a very hard act to follow ...but you'd have a hard time keeping me away!

                    This is the kind of video I wanted to make during my last holiday - editing is perfect and the whole concept is so beautifully put together!

                    Check it out - if you love Thailand, this is something you want to see.

                            Today has been the Memorial Day for King Chulalongkorn, and a public holiday in Thailand.
                            I hope it has been a good day for our Captain.

                              Perhaps not a FACT (in accordance to the title of this thread) but in Thailand, things are a lot more fun and people really know how to have fun....
