Anyone who is looking for the perfect family destination in Thailand should head straight for the tropical paradise of Krabi. Located in the south of Thailand near the popular tourist islands of Phuket and Phi Phi, Krabi offers a more natural, relaxing atmosphere that all the family can enjoy together.
At least that’s what Thai Airways International (THAI) executive Teerapol Chotichanapibal believes. In a recent interview with the Bangkok Post the airline veteran said that: "Whenever I can squeeze in the time for a family outing I head to a beach destination in Thailand. Krabi definitely comes out tops for its natural beauty. As I'm not the type who's content to sit still, you'd probably find me out on a boat fishing or snorkelling ... basically, soaking in the tranquillity to help myself unwind."
Teerapol has been working with THAI for just under 30 years and has certainly spent plenty of time exploring Thailand. With Teerapol’s local knowledge, THAI have been working hard to make special packages and recommendations for passengers. Although there are plenty of fantastic destinations to choose from, he still rates Krabi very highly.
Turkish Airlines have just announced their plans to increase its service from Istanbul to Bangkok. This is great news for anyone who plans to use the airline to explore South East Asia as they will be offering connecting flights from Bangkok to a number of destinations including Ho Chi Minh City and Manila.
Starting in December of this year, Turkish Airlines will double the number of non-stop flights on the Bangkok-Istanbul route to 14 per week. According to Dr Temel Kotil, president and CEO of Turkish Airlines, the change is being made in response to overwhelming high-season demand from air passengers.
As Dr Kotil said in a recent interview with the Bangkok Post: "We really want to strike the deal with THAI because it benefits both of us, enabling us capture the larger pie [of business].”
At present, Turkish Airlines flies to 118 international destinations, including 17 in Asia as well as 36 cities in Turkey. They will shortly receive 19 new aircraft, including seven Airbus A330s and seven Boeing B777s, which will be used to facilitate the extra flights.
Turkish Airlines have been working hard to offer passengers a selection of outstanding deals and offers, set to make travelling to Bangkok and beyond smooth and cost effective.
Trouble may be on the horizon for leading airline Thai Airways Internationals. It seems that their route from Chiang Mai to Mae Hong Son has such a positive effect on local business that tour companies and other local companies are planning court action if the company decides to scrap the route.
Thai Airways International (THAI) announced a few months ago that they were considering discontinuing the route as part of a scheme to cut loss-making secondary domestic routes. However, according to a report by the Bangkok Post, they plan to allow budget carrier Nok Airlines to take over the service.
In a recent press statement, the chairman of the Mae Hong Son chamber of commerce, Supot Klinpranit, announced that the tourism industry were distressed by THAI’s comments and that a number of tour operators were already starting to exclude Mae Hong Son from their programs.
However, it seems that there is a demand for the route as last year around 92,000 tourists travelled by plane to the province, generating a total of two billion baht per year in tourism.
With so much at stake, it seems that the service may continue a little longer.
Anyone who has visited Phuket recently may have taken a trip to the ‘monkey viewpoint’ area, which can be found on Koh Sireh. This is a great place to watch the colony of crab-eating macaques that live in the area.
The monkey viewpoint has proven so popular in recent years that a project has been proposed to entirely revamp the area. A large central government budget has been requested from the Rassada Municipality to set up three tourism projects in the area, which would include a system of boardwalks leading through the mangrove forest, restoration of the Mali Kaew Dam and Wat Phranon and the construction of facilities such as a health park, restaurants and a car park.
Although the project would take up to 80 million baht to complete, Rassada Mayor Surathin Lianudom seems confident that the work could be finished early next year. In a recent interview with the Phuket Gazette he stated: “In the past, Koh Sireh has not been attractive for tourists because it is dirty and unorganized, but our new project will ensure the island is viewed as a major selling point for the Phuket tourist market.”
Residents and holiday makers on the island of Samui need to think twice before taking illegal drugs. The island’s District Chief Sakchai Jorphalit is heading an operation to stamp out the use and dealing of narcotic drugs.
Known as Post Box 188, the new campaign is the brainchild of newly launched Operation Center to Fight against Drug. They also intend to launch other programs and activities to encourage residents to help stamp out the island’s drug problem.
As Sakchai said in a recent interview with the Samui Express “Our Operation Center to Fight against Drug has just established the Post Box 188 so that residents and tourists on Koh Samui can send us letters, news, reports, suggestions, proposals related to drug usage on Koh Samui. It is another channel for us to receive information directly from people about the sources of narcotic drugs. We need quality tourist, not drug-using ones. Let’s make Samui drug-free. Tourists should come here to appreciate Samui’s natural beauty, and not to take drugs.”
This is great news for holiday makers with children as the island’s new safer image will make it easy to relax and unwind.
