Charter flights from China enter to Samui

Tuesday, October 12th, 2010

Make money widespread more than 4 million.Bangkok airways make a charter flight for welcome tourist from China.

In the future we sure that Chinese will suspect in Thailand sea and will come again in the future. Bangkok airways have a charter flights to Samui from 2 origins that are from Kunming 2 flight and Chentu 1 flight.

For the past was having a charter flight arrival at Samui in Chinese festival. But now in these year Bangkok airways make a charter flight to Samui because of strong tourism of Thailand. Essential, this group of tourist is high-class of visitors and intended to Samui. First group that enter to Samui was on 1 October about 400 people.

For the accommodations is about 2500-10000 baht for the spending per person is about 10000 baht.  This is estimate that behavior of spending is about 10000 baht. Thus, we can estimate these groups of customer are high-end target. For the airplane Bangkok airways used airbus a320 size 136 seats.

Flight in 1 October is full also in 2 October.  For the question that why Bangkok airways will have to do market only Kunming and Cheutu that is because that is concern about rote of airline that is not more than 3 hours.

So, from the origin to Samui is in this boundary. And if you want for new marketing for far away more than 3 hours route you have to make a new marketing.

However, own route we have more than 180 million people in target. Almost tourists in china are well known about Thailand and Samui. Because in Chentu is not have a sea. Therefore, they would like to travel in a beautiful sea and Samui is that their answer

For the guest that would like to go to Samui. You can come to Bangkok and stay at Royal View Resort. We are the hotel that located in central of Bangkok that is very comfort to travel. Also, we are central of transportation easily to go to Suvanabhumi airport by airport link and Donmung air port.

ระบบขนส่งใหม่ของกรุงเทพ

Tuesday, September 21st, 2010

ตอนนี้ กรุงเทพ ฯมีระบบขนส่งมวลชนแบบใหม่ ตอนที่เปิดแรกๆ  มีคนพูดถึงกันเยอะมาก ว่ามันคืออะไร วิ่งยังไงขนส่งแบบไหน  มีระบบอะไร มีอยู่ที่ไหน  วิ่งไปไหนบ้าง  ใช้รถอะไรวิ่ง  เปิดแล้วจะมีปัญหาอะไรไหมสำนักข่าวของประเทศไทยออกข่าวเรื่องนี้เต็มไปหมด

เราก็ได้แต่ดูมันผ่นทาง ทีวี ตั้งแต่ตอนที่กำลังสร้างอยู่   ก็เห็นสถานี แล้วก็ทางของจริงแล้ว แต่ดูยังไงก็งงๆอยู่ว่ามันจะออกมาเป็นยังไงในตอนนั้นพอดูในทีวี เห็นนักข่าวพอไปนั่งอธิบายนั่น

อธิบายนี่ ก็พอเข้าใจแล้วว่ามันเป็นยังไง พูดมาตั้งเยอะแล้วยังไม่พูดถึงเลยว่ามันชื่ออะไร มันชื่อ BRT มีเส้นทางวิ่งจากช่องนนทรีไปสุดที่บรมราชชนนี มันใช้รถบัสในการวิ่งตามถนนแต่มีที่กั้นไม่ให้รถนอกเข้า  มีสถานีต่างๆ มี BTS

บริษัทรถไฟฟ้าที่เห็นบนถนนตามย่านสุขุมวิท สีลม มาจัดระบบการบริหารฟังดูแล้วแปลกๆเพราะมันไม่เคยมีในเมืองไทยช่วงวันแรกที่เปิด มีคนไปทดลองใช้กันเต็มไปหมด ตามประสาคนไทยที่ชอบแต่เห่อของใหม่ๆ มีอะไรใหม่ คนไทยไม่มีทางพลาดอยู่แล้ว แต่เราก็อยากไปนะแต่ไปไม่ได้

เมื่อ2-3วันที่แล้วเรามีเวลาว่างเลยไปเห่อของใหม่แบบคนอื่นบ้าง ได้ยินแต่เค้าพูดกัน มีเวลาก็เลยไม่อยากพลาด เรานั่งรถไฟฟ้าจากโรงแรมรอยัลวิวรีสอร์ทที่สถานีอนุเสาวรีย์ชัยฯไปเปลี่ยนขบวนรถที่สถานีสยามเพราะที่เรานั่งมาจากโรงแรมเป็นสายสุขุมวิทเราเปลี่ยนขบวนเป็นสายสีลมใช้เวลาเปลี่ยนขบวนไม่นาน จากนั้น เราก็นั่งไปลงที่สถานีช่องนนทรี

พอเดินลงก็งงๆนิดหน่อยว่าต้องไปขึ้นรถทางไหนมองไปมองมาเห็นป้ายบอกทางก็รู้เลยว่าต้องเดินตรงไปเรื่อยๆแต่ดีอย่างที่ไม่ต้องเดินขึ้นลงสะพานลอย เพราะมีทางเชื่อมระหว่างสถานีรถไฟฟ้าช่องนนทรี กับสถานี BRTช่องนนทรี แต่ไม่รู้สินะเหมือนกับว่าทางเชื่อมยังไม่เสร็จดี พอเดินมาถึงสถานี BRT ก็เจอกับตู้ขายตู้ขายตั๋วมีพนักงานฃายตั๋วใส่เสื้อของ

BTS นั่งอยู่ราคาก็ไม่แพงแค่ 10 บาทตลอดสาย สงสัยราคาถูกเพราะว่าเป็นช่วงทดลองอยู่หรือเปล่า บัตรโดยสารที่ได้เป็นบัตรเหมือนบัตรทั่วไปแต่อ่อนกว่า พอเราเดินเข้าไปต้องเอาบัตรนี้ไปสแกนที่เครื่อง แต่ไม่คิดเลยว่าบัตรอ่อนขนาดนี้จะสแกนได้ ระบบเหมือนกับระบบของ bts กับ mrt ทั่วไป จากนั้นก็เลี้ยวซ้ายลงไปที่ชานชาลา ชานชาลามีเก้าที่นั่งได้ประมาณ 10 คน

ติดแอร์เย็นสบาย เพื่อนร่วทางบางคนก็นั่งบางคนก็ยืน เรารอรถไม่เกิน 10 นาที รถก็มารถที่เห็นเป็นรถบัสสีเหลืองเขียวเหมือนสีของกทม.เลย รถบัสก็เป็นรุ่นใหม่แต่ไม่รู้ว่าเป็นยี่ห้ออะไร แต่ดีไซด์สวยน่ารักดีข้างดูกว้างขวางมีเก้าอี้ให้นั่งทั้งแบบนั่ง 1คน นั่ง 2 คน และนั่งหลายคน มีคนขับแต่ไม่มีคนเก็บตั๋วเหมือนรถเมล์ในเมืองไทยแบบอื่นๆ

ประตูชานชาลากับประตูของรถจะเปิดปิดพร้อมกันและมีเสียงเตือนระหว่างเปิดปิดด้วย ดูแล้วเหมือนกับ bts กับ mrt สงสัยคนขับรถจะขับรถเก่งมาก เพราะว่าช่องห่างระหว่างตัวรถกับชานชาลาห่างกันนิดเดียว เวลาออกตัวรถก็นิ่มมากบางครั้งอาจจะมากกว่า bts กับ mrt ด้วยซ้ำ มีเสียงประกาศบอกว่าสถานีต่อไปอะไรด้วยทั้งภาษาอังกฤษและภาษาไทย

อย่างงี้คนต่างชาติใช้ได้สบายเลย พอถึงสถานีก็มีประกาศทั้ง 2 ภาษา อีกด้วยแต่เท่าที่ดูสถานีอื่นไม่มีชานชาลาที่ติดแอร์เหมือนสถานีช่องนนทรี แต่ไม่เป็นไรยังไงในรถก็แอร์เย็น แถมบรรยากาศภายในยังน่านั่งอีก พอถึงสถานีปลายทาง เราก็สังเกตเห็นว่าตัวรถกับชานชาลาห่างกันนิดเดียว อย่างงี้ต้องชมความเก่งของคนขับรถอีก

ตอนออกจากสถานีก็ต้องนำบัตรมาสแกนซ้ำเหมือน bts กับ mrt เมื่อเดินออกมาจะมีตู้ให้เราใส่บัตรที่ใช้แล้ว ดูแปลกดี เราอยากให้ทุกคนลองมาใช้บริการ brt ดู เราคิดว่าพวกคุณจะรู้ประทับใจและสะดวกสบายในการเดินทาง เรามั่นใจว่าแขกทุกคนของโรงแรมรอยัล วิว รีสอร์ท จะรู้สึกประทับใจกับทั้งโรงแรมที่มีบริการที่ดีอาหารอร่อย

ที่พักสะดวกสบาย ตั้งอยู่ใจกลางเมือง สามารถเดินทางไปท่องเที่ยว ชอปปิ้ง และติดต่อธุระหรืองานต่างๆ ได้อย่างรวดเร็วสะดวกสบาย ไม่ต้องกังวลถึงคำว่ารถติดของกทม.อีกต่อไป ด้วยการใช้ระบบขนส่งทางรางที่ใกล้กับโรงแรม รอยัล วิว รีสอร์ท ทั้ง bts mrt และ airport link  รวมถึงระบบขนส่งแบบใหม่คือ brt  ที่มีเครือข่ายเชื่อมโยงกัน

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
