Following recent evacuations and severe warnings, Mount Agung has yet to erupt. A careful eye is being kept on the volcano by experts and locals, but the smoking giant still remains relatively silent.
Starting on the 1st of November those caught smoking and/or littering on 20 popular beaches nationwide could receive fine of up to THB 100,000 and/or a year-long jail term.
DK & MH Just returned from a quick visit to Barcelona & Madrid, two fantastic Spanish cities. Despite having been numerous times, they were still able to discover some new sites. They shopped, sampled the local cuisine and even took the time out to explore a rather old and lovely mountaintop Monastery. 3 short days, but they enjoyed every moment.
Experts say Mount Agung in Bali could erupt within hours. The volcano last erupted in 1963, and whilst there have been regular tremors since then, this is the first time in recent history for real concern.
Further to our previous notes on the damage caused by hurricane Maria earlier in the month, we have received more updates on Dominica.
The latest and most vicious Hurricane was Maria, which started hitting several of the islands earlier this week and then caused massive destruction as it moved north. The island of Dominica was particularly badly hit.
Following our earlier report, the Caribbean has been hit by yet another hurricane, this one called Maria.
While the Carribean may offer some of the best beaches and year round sunshine, this time of year brings the harsh realities of hurricane season. Here Chic Locations will give a brief update on the season and expresses its sympathy for those who have been affected by the recent hurricanes.
Starting on September 18, Thai Airways will introduce the new Airbus A350 to their Heathrow to Bangkok route
Following DK’s recent escapade, we invite you to “Thai Something New” with three superb beach hotels, a luxury resort and one truly spectacular city hotel.
I am rather proud of my reputation of being hard to please, but WOW, The Siam Hotel is truly amazing. A great spa, superb water front restaurant in a traditional teak house, infinity pool… and it just goes on and on. Staff who seem to blend into the background, yet are able to anticipate your needs before you ask. This place is special.
