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

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.
