Editor’s Note Well it’s with great pleasure that I can announce that as of this month those travelling to and from Phuket will be able to enjoy somewhat of a much more pleasurable experience at Phuket International Airport, as the Governor of Phuket has recently announced that the opening of the airport’s new Terminal X is well on track and should start serving travelers from 5th February 2014. I can only hope the island’s other current infrastructure improvements are also going to schedule and we will also see the completion of these sometime in the very near future. The place to head this month definitely has to be Phuket Town, as it celebrates its own past with the Phuket Old Town Festival. Second to the Phuket Vegetarian Festival, this is another activity that draws thousands and thousands of locals and tourists to the town center, and where those that attend can enjoy a host of activities which are full of local tradition and culture. Just Google Phuket Old Town Festival 2014 and you’ll find all the information you need for this spectacular event. See you there!!!

people smile and wave as you pass by. Koh Yao Noi features first class beaches, natural forests and beautiful scenery.

Some visitors spend their holiday taking in Phuket’s scenery and relaxing on the beaches. However, with it having many small islands surrounding it Phuket is the perfect for wanting to go island hopping. When we say island hopping, we don’t mean jumping on a speed boat and spending 5 minutes at the various small islands surrounding Phuket, we mean jumping on ferry and spending a few days away on some of the nearby larger islands. There are a number of ferries which can take you to these islands and get you back in time to get your flight. In this article we give you some basic information on some of the islands, and on how you can get there..

Koh Phi Phi Phi Phi is only 90 minutes away and the second most popular destination in South Thailand after Phuket. Its beaches, stunning rock formations, turquoise waters and relaxed lifestyle are why it is popular with travelers. There are plenty of activities to keep you busy during the day including scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking and sightseeing, which is in addition to sun bathing, relaxing and eating. With everything from simple beach huts to top notch hotels everyone, on any budget will find somewhere to stay.

Koh Lanta There are two Koh Lantas, Koh Lanta Noi and Kho Lanta Yai, Koh Lanta Yai is where all the action is. The island is ideal for those wanting to get away from parties, with more walking on the beaches and watching the sunset than drinking and dancing. However, there are plenty of bars and you can find a party if you ask around. Ko Lanta’s west coast is lined with resorts and bungalows, however, the further south you go, the less there is. And even when it’s busy no beach is ever full. Wat Chaitaratam

Many years ago masseurs could only be found on beaches where they performed their massages to tourists. However, that was before it became popular, and today, you can find a massage pretty much anywhere on the island, in shop houses, clinics, hospitals and even at airports. Massage has not only become popular here because it is affordable, it is also because it has a range of very real health benefits. If you’ve never had a massage, a Thai massage is a great introduction; and it is the most common and cheapest on offer, costing from as little as a couple of hundred baht for one to two hours. The original Thai massage uses no oil, and the energetic masseuses will pull your fingers, walk on your back, and use her elbows and knees as part of the therapy. There is no need to panic about this, if it’s too strong for you just ask here to be a bit gentler. A good Thai massage results in lower stress levels, relief of tension and stiffness in muscles and joints, and improvements in energy levels and blood circulation. To put it simply, it makes you feel good. Massage is generally considered part of complementary and alternative medicine, and is now offered along with standard treatments for a wide range of medical conditions and situations. Let’s have a look some of the possible health benefits of a massage and what to expect during a massage therapy session.

1 Stress Relief Gentle massage helps lower the heart rate. It stimulates the nerve endings towards the surface of the skin and causes your body to increase levels of endorphins thus causing a feeling of relaxation. When your heart rate is low your blood pressure is also low. This allows the body to enter a relaxing restand-recovery mode­: an effect that lingers long after the massage is over.

If you don’t have wheels then it’s easy to get a taxi to and from Central. But if you do have them it’s no problem as there’s underground parking are available. However, be warned that spaces do get occupied quickly. Alternatively you may park outside on the opposite side of the road where the old Thainaan Restaurant is located and also you may also park at HomeWorks, its sister mall, and walk over the bridge to Central. Good deals can be found in most department stores especially for seasonal wear. The reason is that in Thailand the shops stocks foreign goods which have both winter and summer collections. They often offer up to 30%-40% off the original price and you can also claim VAT refunds at the airport. In term of services, there’s a banking and finance zone with all the major banks. The B2s book and stationary store is very large features both Thai and English language books. DVDs and CDs. However, as these are genuine products they are more expensive than at stalls at markets. At Central you can have brunch, lunch and dinner without going elsewhere. There are plenty of good restaurants offering international foods from Thai, Japan, Italy or even Russian. And like other high standard dining places many stock great wine collections. On the very top floor is SF cinema as well as a number of manicure and pedicure services.

EVENTS & News

Thailand’s Consumer Case Procedure Act B.E. 2551 (2008) was enacted to provide consumers with easier, access to justice in complaints against business operators. The Act considers consumer cases to be civil disputes that are related to the use of goods or services. There are 4 essential provisions of the Consumer Case Procedure Act: 1. Consumers have greater access to justice in disputes with entrepreneurs.

Wat Chalong Temple Fair 2014

2. The process for determining the truth in a case is conducted more fairly and efficiently.

Wat Chalong was built in the early 1800s and is Phuket’s largest Buddhist temple. It’s one of Phuket’s main tourist attractions, but also an important place of worship among Thai Buddhists. A former Abbot, Luang Por Cham, is highly revered for his help in calming a Chinese worker rebellion in 1876, and his image is now enshrined at Wat Chalong in a realistic wax statue.

3. Procedures progress more quickly and are guided by principles that provide consumers with damage relief. 4. Ethical standards in the conduct of business are strengthened. Before this law was enacted, if there was a dispute between business entrepreneur and consumers, the ensuing trial had to comply with Thailand’s Civil Procedure Code B.E. 2477 (1934), in respect of the filing of thelawsuit, the jurisdiction, addressing the preemptory date, and so forth.

Judgments under the Consumer Case Procedure Act

Wat Chalong is host to a huge festival each year during Chinese New Year. Thousands of people come to not only make merit but to enjoy the numerous tasty food offerings and nightly live music entertainment. It’s also a great place to pick up some well-priced handicrafts, plants, flowers and other goods for sale. The next Chinese New Year starts on January 31 - February 6, 2014, so the Wat Chalong festival should take place around this date. Wat Chalong is on Luang Por Cham Road, about 8 km south of Phuket City off Chao Fa West Road.

The Island’s Original Homemade Ice Cream Parlor Branch 1: 136 Taweewong Rd., (Beach road) Patong, Kathu,Phuket Branch 2 : 81 Phangmuengsaikor Rd., Patong, Kathu,Phuket Tel : 092-0750663

Clearly the majority of consumers lacked the legal knowledge that would enable them to act against the entrepreneurs. In addition, the court procedures could be quite costly. The Consumer Case Procedure Actauthorizes a greater level of powers to the consumer courts, empowering them to: • render judgmentsin cases where the consumer is the plaintiff; • edit judgments or orders within a period not exceeding 10 years in cases where the actual damage is not able to be recognized; • make judgments causing entrepreneurs to provide consumers with product replacements; • configure fines for sanctions; and • order businesses to announce product recalls. Section 44 of the Act states that when a business entrepreneur that is sued is a juristic person, the court has the power to call the partner, shareholder, or person who has the authority to regulate the operation of the businessas a co-defendant. The court also has the power to adjudicate such person to be jointly liable for the corporate debt to consumers if: • the business operated without good faith or is involved in fraud and deception of the consumer, or has removed or transferred assets of the business to the benefit of any person; and •those assets are not sufficient to pay the debt according to the complaint. It is important to take this potential liability into consideration beforebecoming a partner, shareholder, or a person with authority to regulate the operation of a business that produces or sells goods or services.
