Siam, I said... This Buddhist kingdom remains a stunning destination, from the hurly-burly of Bangkok to its Golden Triangle to its voluptuous beaches.

Just caught this from the Bangkok Post about Thailand's withdrawal from the World Heritage Convention:

"Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva has defended the decision to withdraw Thailand from Unesco's World Heritage Convention, saying its approval of Cambodia's management plan for Preah Vihear temple would put the country at a disadvantage." I wonder what are the implications, if any for Thailand's five existing UNESCO World Heritage Sites, like Sukhothai and so forth...has anybody heard?

The Guardian reports: The culture minister of Thailand wants to put a ban on Buddhist tattoos on non-Buddhist visitors. 

"Tourists visiting Thailand should be barred from getting culturally insensitive Buddhist tattoos, the culture ministry says.

Niphit Intharasombat, the culture minister, said residents have complained that tattoo parlours are etching sacred images of Buddha and other religious images on to the skin of non-Buddhist visitors.

"Foreigners see these tattoos as fashion," Niphit said on the ministry's website.

They do not think of respecting religion, or they may not be aware that these tattoos can be offensive, he added. "

Is he overreacting?

What are some of the culinary experiences one should not miss in Bangkok ? Night markets, Food courts, restaurants, something beyond what one can easily experience elsewhere.
