15 people hurt in bus accident

Fifteen passengers were injured when their interprovincial bus ran into the dividing ditch on the Mittraphap Highway in Muang district early on Monday morning.

The accident, near Pak Thong Chai intersection in tambon Pho Klang, was reported to police about 2.15am.

Emergency units found a white bus belonging to Esan Tour Co and registered in Khon Kaen province in the median strip ditch dividing the highway. Rescue workers took 15 injured passengers to three local hospitals. There were no fatalities.

The driver, Jak Panklang, 65, said he was taking 28 people from Khon Kaen to Bangkok. The bus had left Khon Kaen at 10pm Sunday and made a stop at the second bus terminal at Nakhon Ratchasima about 2am.

After the break, he was following another air-conditioned bus along the highway. It suddenly slowed down. He swerved to avoid a crash, lost control of his bus and it ran into the ditch dividing the highway. It had just started raining, he explained

5 Ways to Make Yourself More Appealing a Thai Girl

The following article is from our new Inspire guest writer.

It is natural for men of all ages to want to be more attractive to the opposite sex and it is of course no different here in Thailand. Below are a few ideas that can help you to achieve your goal.

1. Good Personal Hygiene

It should go without saying but it surprising how many people do not pay attention to their personal hygiene. We are living in a hot, humid climate so regular showers are a necessity as is a good deodorant. Don’t forget regular showers and regular grooming and you are well on the way to being more attractive!

2. Be a Gentleman

It doesn’t matter what culture you are from, all ladies appreciate a gentleman. Small things like opening doors and listening to her will make her appreciate you more.

3. Make Her Laugh

A sense of humour always goes a long way. You don’t have to be a stand up comedian (which in itself maybe off putting!) but a little relaxed, light hearted humour will make both of you happier. If you can achieve this you have nearly cracked it!

4. Be Patient

Remember your dream Thai lady will probably not be fluent in English or fully understand the differences in culture. She will want to make you happy as well as better herself. She will be trying very hard with something that will not be easy so be patient with her and help her where you can!

5. Remember her Family

The family is one of the most important things in Thai life and it is important that you remember this. She will most likely need to send money to her family on a monthly basis. Complaining about this will only alienate you so try and understand and be supportive. If you can do this she will be putty in your hands!

Others that just missed the cut:

1. Eat Spicy Thai Food and Som Tam – You should show no pain in your eyes and say ‘Aloy Aloy’ (tastes good) after each mouthful.
2. Base everything you do in life on fun

Korat News / Korat rail project 'could split town centre'
« Last post by Johnnie F. on Today at 01:20:58 PM »

Agencies in Nakhon Ratchasima will petition transport authorities to review the design of a double-track railway project, which they say threatens to split their communities into two.

The 187km project, stretching from Jira in Nakhon Ratchasima to Khon Kaen, is part of the government's plan to boost the Northeastern rail transport network, including over the border and into Laos.

The construction of the route is now 20% complete and it is expected to be finished in 2019.

Based on the route's design, drawn up by the Office of Transport and Traffic Policy and Planning (OTP), the rail tracks will pass through the heart of Muang Nakhon Ratchasima municipality.

As the tracks will be fenced and come without crossing points, people will not be able to cross to the other side of the municipality, according to observers.

People may have to make a detour or U-turn bridges across the railway lines may be needed.

However, the rail tracks could be elevated in Muang Khon Kaen municipality, for the sake of convenience and maintaining an orderly landscape.

Surawut Cherdchai, mayor of Nakhon Ratchasima municipality, said he thanked the government for mobilising the double-track railway project in the province.

However, the railways planned to cut through the city would hamper the livelihoods of people on both sides of the route, he said, adding people may have to make a long detour.

Several agencies, such as the municipality, the provincial chamber of commerce and the Nakhon Ratchasima chapter of the Federation of Thai Industries, would like the OTP to review the design of the route, which should be elevated in the same way the proposed Khon Kaen railways will be, he said.

They will submit a petition to the OTP and the State Railway of Thailand this week, he said.

He said the change is needed to accommodate the movement of people between the north and south of the municipality and ease sewerage system management, he said.

Hi TT, your new company will definitely be a valuable addition to the tourism business in Thailand. Is that an outcome of the Brexit referendum: "What you can't get in Europe (anymore) old and new colonies will have to supply?" ;D
