Re: Vietnam Visa

Yes and the level of English is also better in Cambodia. TheThais seem to think that Thai will get them anywhere and this is manifested in their ridiculous TV programs. The only English I found recently upcountry was on France 24 - isn't that ironic?

Re: Chinese tourists (and their habits) surge into Thailand

We should encourage them to continue their sea going adventures preferably wearing life jackets? They happen also to be in large numbers in Cambodia. Was told the new ticketing arrangements which require your pic on the pass was the result of Ch tour operators handing over their client tickets to th...

Re: Macaques being sterilised at Hua Hin tourist spot

Thais love taking unwanted dogs and cats and dumping them preferably at the local wat. I rescued a forlorn sick cat recently in the bush . Had it treated, sterilised (not happy) and now living a stable life with the in laws. Even wanders to the front street for the daily bintabat. As for those aggre...

Re: Thailand tumbles in International Student Assessments

Here is the economist article - an interesting slant. IMO while Thailand holds onto its ancient script it will always be behind the educational eightball. Vietnam woke up a long time ago and China is a standout. http://www.economist.com/news/asia/21715011-countrys-class-war-has-its-roots-classroom-p...
