After a week it was beautiful, I came to do business for the resort. I also continued work when the economy is quite good. In year of 2000 I came to surprise a lot of customer flows.

But it was a double-edged sword. Most travelers think of this Full Moon Party in a way that is not good, the drug. But it’s not just that. I hope everyone has opinion the Full Moon in more positive image.

I think it will get better of tourism marketing in the future, If all people and all sectors to help maintain and replenish attractions. As well as public or a part of person.

Horoscope PART 1

Spot Your Mate By Mr.

Rup Krishen Baqaya

Aries

Aries is a rash, impetuous,headstrong sign, impulsive in love affairs and marriage as in everything else. It is also passionate. Aries tends to seek someone of a weaker nature whom it can impress and protect. Primarily Aries strives for leadership, whether it is man or woman. Unless the other partner is content to be led friction is likely to develop in the marriage.

Taurus

Taurus has a very strong sex nature, though chiefly physical. At heart, Taurus is faithful, good natured, easily satisfied and patient. One of the chief characteristics of both men and women of the sign is obstinacy. Thus Taurus cannot be driven; it could rather be led by affection. Another peculiarity of Taurus is that it is not a very demonstrative sign. There is also this inclination in Taurus to be possessive.

Cancer

Cancer is extremely imaginative and emotional. Its sex outlook is romantic, sentimental, protective and very largely maternal. It is subject to rapidly fluctuating moods but capable of great tenacity and faithfulness. There are two characteristics that are of great importance, one being fear of ridicule, the other hatred of criticism, both of which and more so the latter affect married life.

Leo

Leo is an intensely loyal, generous and magnanimous sign. The people born under this sign tend to adopt a protective role and like to be looked up to and admired when it comes to sex matters. The manner is often lordly and could be dominating too. Leo always likes to have the ordering and management of affairs. However not a fickle one but capable of great faith and loyalty when the feelings are fully aroused.

Gemini

Virgo

The general outlook of a Gemini in life is purely mental, sex interests being quite secondary. Gemini is essentially a cold blooded sign. It is a kind of living question mark, always seeking to know the reason for everything, analysing its own and other people’s thoughts, speech, actions and reactions. The attitude of Gemini to sex matters is thus not only experimental, but very cool, calculating and selfish.

Virgo is the natural sign of virginity and therefore does not favour marriage. Virgo is very discriminative and critical and is not at all easily satisfied. It is fastidious, dislikes being touched – the characteristics play an important part in its sex outlook. In marriage Virgo is dutiful, may be much more affectionate than appears on the surface, for the extreme shyness of the sign prevents any exhibition of affection.

The Interview

part 2

CHUMPHON PROVINCIAL GOVERNOR

Pinit Charoenpanit Governor of Chumphon

Journey by the governor Pinit Charoenpanich, a tour guide who seem not to be tired or bored of leading us to visit his (home) town. But what we can see is his eyes expression would like to invite us to visit his beloved hometown named “Chumphon”.


When we follow the father of Chumphon, who serves as host bring us take a tour in the territory since we have arrived. We have been told of the history as well as the knowledge and information of different places. The same as the destination on his fingertip now.

Looking over there, you will see Koh Pak Nam Tako (Pak Nam Tako Island), which the similar attraction to Koh Nang Yuan. That is, when the seawater goes down, the visitors can walk across to the other side of the island. Besides, the another feature of this Pak Nam Tako Island is it has a lot of little oysters along the path we tread. And if we keep walking on (without tiredness!), we will soon arrive Khao Matsi (Matsi Hill). On the hill is located the sacred goddess, which people in this area pay their respect to. There are also many beautiful scenic spots and does not want anyone visiting here miss them. You will just feel.. sorry for it!

small town, but it has a great natural. This is one of the wonderful places of Thailand that should be recommended everyone come to enjoy by themselves. In addition of the perfect nature, Chumphon people is also out of the ordinary. They are very good cook, like it is the talent of them here. The governor said because maybe they are so lucky having completely oysters, shrimps, crabs and fish. So that restaurants along the beaches are “Virtually all delicious”. And not only seafood is famous. Before our team come here, we have heard that this province is also famous about fruits. And who will provide the best answers is none other than the homeowner, our governor himself.

Walking through a bit, you will meet the place where His Majesty the fifth King made another trip in the reign of Phra Chao Luang (The reign of the King’s death, or out of the throne but still alive). He would stay here in every time he visited the south. The majority of those people visiting here are already interested in Thailand’s history. So that is more increasing the impression, that they have a chance to come to the place of their former the Thai King who freed slaves to be free as the other ordinary people.

“That’s right, our Chumphon is also well-known as the great power of fruits like rambutan and durian. It’s a perfect place to buy for a souvenir. Our fruits are fresh and crisp. We guarantee of the taste!” When we hear the guarantee of the governor, our doubt has definitely ended.

The next destination, the Coconut Island. In the front of the island are beaches. The mainland side will be Kao Chao Muang (Chao Muang Mount). It’s a high top of the mountain. This appearing scene is very hard to find “a tourist who doesn’t press the shutter!”. It will be a little selfish if you keep this for your memory alone, because this good stuff is worth to share.. isn’t it? After already satisfy those impressive pictures. Then keep walking to the Chumphon Islands National Park. You will see various creatures living on the mangrove forest areas. There is available to assist travelers with a very beautiful stretch of pavement, wooden bridges for walking to learn a real life of those living things. “It is a good place that offers visitors the knowledge and fun!” Said the governor. From which we has obtained knowledge of the attractions of Chumphon moderately well. We feel like this is just a

Before ending this conversation, our team has asked the governor to say all about Chumphon again for your readers both who have visited and have never stepped onto this small happiness city. If they would like to come to prove the beauty of this natural themselves. “Overall, I would say that Chumphon is worth visiting. It has many attractions to visit. Some people may not even know that Chumphon has “Hot springs”. It is just incredible, isn’t it? That makes this county has both sea and hot springs. Plus, you can do rafting, because we have waterfalls. Or if you just want to retreat, there are also some religious places, relatively quiet.. Everything that I have recommended, are all waiting to welcome you to visit willingly. If you never come, I want you to take a visit to see it. Then I’m just worried that.. you’ll fall in love with Chumphon without withdrawal ! “.

Pinit Charoenpanit Governor of Chumphon


Tip to Trip

Travel in the What about

LOW SEASON

?

There is a very distinct high season in Thailand from November to February, when prices in the tourism sector skyrocket. Hotel rates triple, airfares, even motorbike rental prices are hiked. It’s obviously also the period you’ll find crowds.


So what about travel in the low season? Thailand is a year round destination. Even during the rainy season, it’s still possible to enjoy warm weather and blue skies. In fact, a spell of rain clears the air and cools things down. The countryside is greener. Many beaches are almost empty. There are even more local fruits coming into season during this time of year.

Low Season Pros Greatly reduced prices, particularly in the traditional tourist areas. Many people claim their holiday was more relaxed, thanks to quieter hotels and less people. (This is why so many expatriates prefer low season). Easier scheduling i.e. hotels are very likely to have rooms when you want them and it’ll be much easier to get tickets on buses and book seats on domestic airlines. A number of annual festivals and events occur during low season, such as Songkran, or Buddhist Lent. River trips can be more enjoyable because of the higher water levels. The daily rains make the countryside lush and green.
