28 Nov 2013 : Despite their metallic grey sheen, their shapes and details clearly indicated their roots _ khon. Looking closer, however, and instead of the usual full, growling faces of the khon demons, the cheeks and eyes of these masks designed by Anuthep Potchprasart resembled those of a skeleton. The first few notes plucked from the traditional Chinese guqin zither unfolded an ominous blanket over the show.

06 Nov 2013 : In the recent Thai action flick Tom Yum Goong 2, martial artist Tony "Jaa" Panom successfully creates a myth of being the most ferocious animal lover on the planet.

01 Nov 2013 : If you think you’ve had it with Bangkok traffic, it seems various authorities have finally gotten off their asses and decided to do something about it. They recently put forth some stringent proposals intended to curb the ever-worsening road congestion in the capital. This week we explore the current (and possibly future) state of the roads and practices you should be aware of in the hope that one day (perhaps in this lifetime) we can be safe on the streets and actually go on that planned road trip (if the cars ever move out of the way, that is).

25 Oct 2013 : This year’s Halloween falls on Thursday (Oct 31), and we have already been celebrating by sending LINE Halloween stickers to friends for weeks now. Such antics have gotten us thinking about certain scary beings that have become synonymous with the day. For our own entertainment (and hopefully yours too), we compare six well-known Thai ghosts based on six criteria to find the ultimate mascot for Thai Halloween. Use our picks to inspire your costume, or just continue to be amused by the local fascination with spirits.

Standing more than 2m tall, the plant sprouts green leaves of different sizes, the biggest larger than a person's palm, their shape vaguely resembling those of the bodhi tree.

18 Oct 2013 : Ademonstration against a controversial dam project in Mae Wong National Park will start at Bangkok Art and Culture Centre tomorrow. The dam plan has been criticised for its lack of transparency, questionable effi ciency in preventing future fl ooding and its threat to irreplaceable trees and wildlife. To deputy PM Plodprasob Suraswadi, forests can be regrown and wildlife bred, but an online petition against the project on Change.org has garnered over 113,401 signatures, becoming the biggest campaign of its kind in Asia (who knew that Thais are such environmentalists?!).
