What's in a name?

'Everything' say property developers

All around us these days, products and services are branded with care and precision. This is not only done to draw attention, but also to stimulate precise feelings within consumers for whatever product or service is being hawked. It's been proven time and time again that clever branding really does produce positive results in businesses.


An overview of teaching in Thailand

I thought this might be of benefit to new ajarn readers in particular

I was asked to fill in a questionnaire by my old university on the topic of teaching English in Thailand. Although it was intended to encourage applicants to take a Thai study program in Germany, the information might be useful for those teachers thinking of coming to work here in Thailand.


Low cost living in the Sukhumwit area

Where are the good deals in this popular area?

Renting apartments in Bangkok: Getting started

A look at suitable low-budget accommodation for teachers in Bangkok, focusing on condos and apartments.


Bangkok getaways - Lopburi

This month it's Thailand's monkey capital

A town located just a few hours from Bangkok that's worth definitely worth a visit. Lopburi, famous for its ruins and monkeys, lies some 150 kilometres north of the capital and can easily be reached by either bus or train.


Apartment-hunting

Looking for digs and the hell of the lower Sukhumwit

I'd been all over the internet in an attempt to compile a list of suitable locations. Some websites I even got redirected to three times. It's amazing how difficult it is to locate independent websites amid the jungle of real estate portals and listings of serviced apartments way over my budget. It's even more difficult to find somewhere that will rent for just a month.


Planning a trip

Scouring the internet and guide-books for the ultimate travel experience.

All I need is a decent hotel for a few days and a plan on how to while away the dalight hours. Is that too much to ask?
