COVER STORYBanned in Siam

03 May 2013 : Well, Guru doesn't and we need your help! See if you can answer these amazingly difficult questions and win yourself the joy of being right!
29 Apr 2013 : A singles-oriented bar in Australia is running a contest for a free trip to Thailand, and all the plastic surgery you can eat, so to speak.
28 Apr 2013 : The abbot of Bangkok's Wat Talom knows that the growing number of foreign monks staying there is causing disquiet in the local community, following complaints of overcrowding, soliciting cash and "improper" behaviour. Phra Maha Somnuek Chutintaro says the number of foreign monks at the temple in Phasicharoen district now totals 316, with the majority from Myanmar (160) followed by Bangladesh (60) and Cambodia (50) and the remainder from India, Vietnam and Laos.
26 Apr 2013 : Earlier this month, the cabinet approved a plan for the Bangkok Mass Transit Authority to purchase 3,183 NGV buses. PM Yingluck Shinawatra has also reportedly tasked the bus authority to come up with measures to encourage people to use their buses more in order to ease traffic.

Anyhoo, that's over 7,000 minutes we're supposed to wisely spend relaxing before going back to the grind on Wednesday. And even though some shops and places in Bangkok may be shut during the Thai New Year, there are plenty more options for celebrating. Here's what we suggest you do and, hopefully, you may also find a deeper meaning of Songkran Festival (besides throwing water at strangers) along the way. Happy splashing, everyone.

30 Mar 2013 : A recently discovered Khmer-style artefact links a historical northern Thai town to the wider Southeast Asian region, not only proving Thailand's cultural wealth of old, but also adding an important piece to the puzzle about the region's trading significance in pre-Siam days.

25 Mar 2013 : It was late afternoon on a hot day in Myanmar. A group of Thai archaeologist at an excavation site in Linzingong cemetery in Mandalay were about to wrap up their work when one of them emerged with a lotus-shaped artefact.
23 Mar 2013 : Long-suffering Bangkok commuters would be forgiven for feeling left out of the planning mix, despite all the promises made during the recent governor election, but some consolation is heading their way in the form of a revived water transport system.
