Thailand is the only country in Southeast Asia never to have been a Eropean colony. The country consistently remained free of European rule (a point of great national pride to the Thais). Thailand signed trade treaties with both France and Britain under the rule of King Mongkut and his son, King Chulalongkorn. By playing France and England off against each other, the kings kept their country free. The name “Thai” means “free”.
Airport to Get Automatic Passport Check System Suvarnabhumi Airport has invested more than 76 million baht on an automatic passport inspection system to address the problem of overcrowding at the immigration checkpoints. Deputy director of the Suvarnabhumi Airport, Wilaiwan Nadwilai, reported that to address the problem of overcrowding and lines at immigration checkpoints, more than 76 million baht have been invested for the installation of an automatic passport inspection system. Eight machines will be installed at the arrival section and another eight at the departure section. Passengers will be able to check themselves in and out without the need for immigration officials. This will reduce the immigration processing time from 45 seconds per person to 25 seconds. The airport expects the system to go online at the end of the year. Wilaiwan also said that the airport authority is currently drawing up the terms of reference for the bidding process for the installation of an air conditioning system. She believes that the winning contractor will be able to start the installation later this year.

BANGKOK, 22 May 2011 (NNT)- Rak Prathet Thai party leader, Chuwit Kamolvisit made a statement at a press conference held at Airport Link Terminal at Makkasan station about the failure of airport link construction campaign which required 2.6 billion baht of budget, and that the period of payback would take over 634 years to break even.
Moreover airport link is isolated with fewer numbers of passenger using Airport link services. According to Mr Chuwit, the management system is inefficient with no security administrator, which does not meet International standards.
The Rak Prathet Thai Leader supported his statement with pictures from different zones in Airport Link, in addition with analysis from Siemens Company, which stated that the possibility in expanding the airport link could only be 25-30 kilometers, therefore, politicians who included the airport link plan to their campaigns in expanding to pattaya, were unlikely to be successful. For the solution to the matter, the private business company’s management is essential rather than management system of State Railway of Thailand. Additionally, they will also have to provide ticket with promotions, between the hotel airlines or selling tickets in advance at special prices.
Never make fun of the royal family; they are regarded as a strong unifying influence. Faced with a fractious Parliament and a strong military, the Thai people turn to their constitutional monarch for leadership. Visiting executives should only use the most respectful terms when referring to the king. There is no room for criticism or humor in reference t royals-unless you want serious repercussions. Some Thai citizens who have made negative comments about the royal family have been charged with lese majesty, and jailed.
Much has been written about Thailand’s sex industry. Since the proliferation of HIV (approximately 600,000 Thais live with HIV or AIDS as of this writing), it is an even more perilous occupation endangering providers and patrons alike. It is projected that 40,000 to 60,000 Thais will die from AIDS-related causes each year, the majority being between twenty and twenty four years of age.
Monks are not permitted to touch the opposite sex. If you are female, do not expect them to shake your hand. If you need to give something to a monk, place it in front of him, or give it to a man to pass along. Monks are not expected to thank you for a contribution either-however, you always thank them for providing you with a means to better your life today, and in the future.
