Re: Hua Hin Airport to Operate International Flights by End 2017

We will need to wait and see what schedule Air Asia will propose. I can not see more than a daily flight, in and out, being justified. If that is the case finding connecting long-haul flights without long stopovers will be difficult. I still can't see how Air Asia can make it pay. Let's see.

Re: Koh Tao police to reopen death case of Belgian tourist

Having now read further reports published in the international press there are some claims that pressure was applied to the Thai press to keep this story under wraps so that tourism was not affected ....WTF.
