The most dangerous places are the safest place.

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

What is the safest place?
Have you ever been, we hear from the ancient people that the most dangerous place is the safest place? We try to study case Nowadays We receive information about bomb bomb threat news, terrorism is always in Bangkok. The news we are consumed each day.

The damage to public and private sectors is enormous. When we received news that over there is here a bomb A native of Bangkok, our own. And a salary man. To see where the bomb was placed and the news came out into dangerous places.

Most people will not travel through or if I can avoid it away to avoid wood approach. Will have few people to understand that In fact, the place where the bombings and that Becomes the safest place why! To say that the safest. It places the incident and the terrorism.

Is replete with security. What happened and what units of public security. We believe care or waiting to be careful not happen again. Therefore say that the most dangerous places. What is the safest place. Therefore, if we choose to live safely. Or life smoothly.

If this is a case study that took into consideration and be wise. Maybe one day to another, whether we or anyone else. Wishing to travel or a stay in the Bangkok I would see that the traditional corner. The most dangerous place is the safest place.

So, if I am a traveler. And I would like to travel in Bangkok. Rangnam is a good choice for me. Because I see very high standard of security, therefore Rangnam is safe. Besides, Thailand processes a next step for solving problem of conflict.

This is good news for Thai people. In my opinion, Thailand is come back. This is good news for high season. Thailand is starting to promote a special promotion to join travel in Thailand. Almost hotel in Thailand is discount more than 50%.

Customer can enjoy high quality of accommodation with the save price. Politics in Thailand always conflict. But now everything change. Anti-government join harmony project with government. Thai process to unity. Thailand now is boom again.

Therefore, if you want to join travel Thailand, Rangnam road is one of best choice. Because of me told before, dangerous places are the safest place. If you go to Rangnam Road you will see many police. You can forget about grab and run.

Now it is impossible for Rangnam Road. This road is become famous like Khao San Road. Rangnam Road has everything that you want. Department store hotel restaurant supermarket cinema or pub and bar are in Rangnam Road.

One of the hotels in Rangnam Road is Royal View Resort. This First and The one of 3 stars hotel is Rangnam Road. We ready to give our warm welcome to every guest.

Temple Bangkok Rattanakosin

Friday, September 3rd, 2010

Mahachai   Road  ,Canal Ferry  Phanfah  Leelas Bridge  9. 00  –  17.00  daily

The three offerings.

……..Among all the Buddhist countries in the world, only three have built palaces adorned with metal roofs or Loha Prasada

Migaramatu Pasada > The first Loha Prasada was built in sravasti , India during Buddha’s lifetime by Visakha , his greatest female  disciple. This generous  donation  to the sangha

(monks and practitioners of dhamma ) was purported to have 500 on each of its two stories with its a roof topped in gold.

Lovamahapaya >   Complete  around  150  BC ,by  King  Dutthagamani  ,the second  brazen palace was erected in Anuradhapura ,Sri Lanka. Rumored  to have a nice stories ,it was established as a  residence for up to 1,000 monks and  a roof covered in copper tiles.

Wat Ratchanaddaram > King Rama III commissioned the building of this third Loha Prasada in 1846 .Part of this intent was to build  a magnificent palace  to house relics of the Buddha

And offer the city  a befitting give in lieu of a less grand chedi.

The temple is seven stories   high  and topped with 37 metal spires that signify the 37  necessary virtues in order to reach enlightenment .The first to  Loha  Prasada are in ruins, so a visit here grants a look at  one of the world’s most wonderful and unqiue sites .

The top perspective.

…….From adopt this  peak  .this views of Krung Thep are second to none ; comparable to city views from Eiffel Tower in Paris or the Tokyo Tower .During temple fair time the pagoda is open late enough for you to catch the city bathed in the golden   color  of evening’s last night.

Phra  Borom  Banpot , or The golden mount, was conceived of during a major renovation of Wat saket .At this time King Rama lll ordered a new pagoda to be built near Mahanak Canal .After some difficulties with  the  original   chedi (twelve -recesses  style  of traditional Ayutthaya) construction  was delayed.

Later, King Rama lV  modified the plans to a more  unique and grander version; this one coated with gold .Overseeing the completion of the chedi was King Rama V, who enshrined some of Buddha’ s relics on the top.

Walking up the hill to  pay  respects  to the relics is  considered a boon of merit for Thais .To the non- believing tourist ,the benefits still outweigh the  hike’s struggle with an opportunity  to lose your breath – by experiencing 360 degrees of the city ‘s panorama . Look where the old town and new city merge….in front you’ll see the temples. Palaces and old communities and further east , the modern megacity, Brilliant.

The Golden Mount

Palatial Composition and Phya Thai Palace

Saturday, August 28th, 2010

BKK first : 1930 > Within the palace, the Walkun Thepayasathan building housed Thailand’s first radio station. In 2007 it was commended as a significant place for Thai communication as part of UNESCO’s World Day for Audiovisual Heritage.

Phya Thai Palace Inside Phramongkutklao Hospital Rajavithi Road,BTS Victory Monument 09.30-17.00  Sat ( 2 guided tours: 09.30 & 13.30) Grounds open all week 02-354-7987,02-3547732 ext. 93646,93694 phyathaipalace.info/Phya_Thai_Palace Free

………Although it also once served as the obscure ‘Dusit Thani’ a miniature model city intending to train Thais on how a democracy should operate – this palace is more typically visited because it was King Rama Vl’s elaborate royal residence. Certain areas are lacking (due to an ongoing restoration process) but the arrangement of the buildings still astound due to the variety of architectural styles present. Those who visit the palace are likely to be particularly impressed by the frescoes inside Phiman Chakri Throne Hall, the unique fleches and the large number of art nouveau paintings. Visitors will also get an opportunity to feel like monarch if they listen to the classical music concerts held at Thewarat Sapharom Hall-check the website for schedule.

History’s study

Varadis Palace Museum & Damrong  Rajanubhap Library

Stories that began in this palace created a valuable record for Thailand. Imagine Prince Damrong Rajanubhap known as the father lf Thai history entertaining his friends and relatives in this beautiful house designed by German architect Karl Siegfried Dohring. Here he’d sit on the floor and enthusiastically retell the significant facts and legends about Thai people.

Damrong ajanubhab Library 8.30 – 16.30 Mon – Fri 0-2282-9110, 0-2281-7577 princedamronglib.org The Prince lived in times of great transition and, while helping to clarify his nation’s past, he also educated his countrymen on the relevance l the present. Using his experience as a seasoned traveller he helped many royals (who were planning to travel abroad) learn about Western table manners and culture. A man of letters. Maybe you can envision him working in his library; a building that still houses his prolific collection of scholarly textbooks and rare documents.

Royal View Resort is Located near Phyathai Palace just 10 min. walk from the hotel. Therefore, this is very close sightseeing in Bangkok.

Aroma Oil And Aromather Massage

Monday, August 23rd, 2010

Most spas offer an oil massage with essential oils that are usually selected by the customer based either their smell, or their promised effects. Aromatherapy as an esoteric healing practice needs to have a higly-trained practitioner to be really effective, but using it in a more general way is quite pleasant. The massage part is usually a gentle Swedish massage or some vision of lymphatic-oriented massage.

Everyone’s aware that there are millions of ways of cleansing and detoxifying your body. Reasonable diets, light exercise, correct breating, massage, mediatation, saunas, stream baths, skin brusing, body scrubs, and oxygen therapies are all effective. But do you realise that quickest and most effective method i sby going without food for while?

Fasting is the quickest way to deal with most illness. Infact, children and animals fast automatically when they sick, for it serves as a trigger for activating their own self-healing mechanism. Whernever your digestive system rests, the cells of your body automatically start releasing accumulated toxins. A 3-day fast cleanses your entire digestive tract. And, incredibly, a 7-day fast perorms a major purification of your blood system, which gives your major organs a good clean-up, too!

Do Survive How to Eat As Thais

Thursday, August 19th, 2010

If you haven’t already noticed, eating is avery important activity here in Thailand. Since you’ll be spending a lot of your time at dining table, here are a few things you’ll need to remember when it comes to Thai table manners.

It usual eating utensils are a fork and spoon. The fork innot used to eat with, but rather to push food onto spoon.

Don’t forget to use serving spoon, especially if you’re sick (unless you on’t like the people you’re diing with!)

The most senior of the group usually sits at the head of the table and is  often expected to be the one who take care of the bill too.

The most common dessert is seasonnal fruits. Although we rarely need to carve them into intricate flowers before we eat them.

Of course, all the usual etiquette applies here too, such as not chewing with your month full, not propping up elbows, legs or any other limbs, and wash your hands before the meal(at leat don’t tell your fellow diners that you haven’t)

Thai people don’t pray or “say graace” before a meal – we just dig in! However,some people do bow their heads and wai if they have leftovers on their plate after a meal; this is asking for forgiveness for wasting food.

A thai meal is a relaxed and friendly group affair. Take your time, enjoy your food and the pleasure of your company!

Therefore, if you want to enjo Thai food with Thai traditional, come to stay with Royal View Resort we’re promtly to serve orginal Thai food to taste and test.
