Thailand to Hold Majestic Royal Barge Procession on 9 November 2012

Bangkok : Global travellers seeking to add another masterpiece event their list of lifetime experiences should pencil 9 November 2012 into their calendars and be in Bangkok to watch the majestic Royal Barge Procession along the Chao Phraya river, The River of Kings.

One of the grandest spectacles in Thailand and indeed, the world, the Royal Barge Procession is an ancient tradition that was revived by His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej in 1959. This breathtaking water-borne procession is reserved for nationally auspicious occasions and has been held only 16 times during His Majesty’s reign.

The main procession will be held between 15.00-16.00 hrs. on 9 November but full dress rehearsals by the Royal Thai Navy will also be held on 2 November and 6 November at 1500. Tickets are available at the website listed below for those wishing to watch the Procession in comfort from the Royal Thai Navy pavilion. Alternately, the Procession can be viewed from various public spots along the river.
King Bhumibol, the ninth monarch of the Chakri dynasty, founded in 1782, is the longest-reigning monarch in Thai history, and has since 1989 been the world’s longest reigning incumbent monarch.
The Procession, which this year will commemorate the auspicious occasion of HM the King’s 85th birthday on 5 December 2012, involves barges carrying the deeply revered Buddha image (Phra Buddha Sihing) and members of the royal family to present offerings of saffron kathin robes, food and other necessities to the monks at Wat Arun (Temple of Dawn).

Truly a sight to behold, the procession consists of a flotilla of 52 traditional-style barges arranged in five columns, based on a battle formation from ancient times. This is made up of four major royal barges — Suphannahongse, Narai Song Suban H.M. King Rama IX, Anantanagaraj and Anekchatbhuchongse, ten barges with animal figureheads and 38 smaller vessels. The five-column flotilla stretches 1,280 metres in length and 110 across. A total of 2,200 sailors from various units within the Royal Thai Navy will serve as oarsmen.

The procession takes approximately 55 minutes to make the 4.5 kilometre journey down the Chao Phraya River to Wat Arun, covering the section from Thonburi Bridge to Phra Phutta Yodfa Bridge. The official ceremony is expected to end at approximately 5.30 pm.
The royal barges of Thailand are the last of their kind in the world. The last time that a royal barge procession was organized was on 12 June 2006 for the diamond jubilee celebrations to mark the 60th anniversary of HM King Bhumibol’s accession to the throne.
This year, His Royal Highness Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn will preside over the Royal Barge Procession and Royal Kathin ceremony at Wat Arun on behalf of His Majesty the King.

The Exotic Taste of a Tropical Paradise

A holiday in Thailand is all about trying new experiences. Blessed with plentiful sunshine and rich soil, Thailand offers you the chance to enjoy the flavours, textures and scents of a vast array of succulent and healthful tropical fruits. There are probably many Thai fruits you have never have seen before, or are a rare and expensive treat back home. 

After savouring the delicately-balanced flavours of local cuisine, many diners in Thailand – whether at a superb, five-star establishment or perched on a plastic stool at a busy sidewalk restaurant – top off a meal with a serving of fresh fruit. In most places, when you’re done eating, the smiling restaurant staff automatically bring you a plate of small, often stylishly shaped, slices of fresh watermelon (in Thai: tangmo), pineapple (sapparot) and papaya (malagor). 

Rinsing the mouth and cooling the palate, this after-dinner fruit is a perfect complement to a delectable and perhaps spicy Thai meal. However, there is a remarkable variety of tropical fruits you can enjoy while in the Kingdom. Here are some suggestions for Thai fruits for you to sample. They will certainly add a special flavour to your holiday.

Durian (in Thai: Turian): We’ll start out with the legendary “King of Fruits”, a love-it or hate-it experience, largely due to the durian’s pungent odour. The powerful smell of durian is so pervasive that it’s banned in some places such as hotels and on airplanes and public transit. Don’t let the odour stop you from trying durian at least once in your life – it’s surprisingly sweet and rich, with the creamy texture of fine custard and a slightly nutty taste.

Adventurous epicureans visiting Thailand must make sure you don’t miss durian. Thailand is the world’s largest durian exporter, so the fruit is widely available at wet and dry food markets during the hot season of April through June. You may find it quite challenging to buy a good durian yourself – the large, spiky fruit comes in a variety of types and there are many subtle signs to look for regarding its quality and ripeness. Even local durian connoisseurs can find it tricky to pick out a good one. Then you’re faced with the challenge of breaking through the thick husk while fending off anybody around who takes exception to the powerful odour of your fruit.

It takes a sharp knife to cut lengthwise through the durian husk. When it’s finally open, get ready for a bracing durian rush from the pungent smell. Most vendors that sell durians are happy to cut it open for you, although you may be less happy carrying the durian back to your hotel or to the beach as the freshly-opened husk allows the full odour to escape. An especially entertaining way to open the fruit is the “durian dance”, in which an expert stands on the husk and rocks back and forth to split it in two.

Once the durian is open, you simply peel back the thin membrane to reveal the pale yellow meat in all its glory. Scoop out a pod of durian meat with your fingers or a spoon, and simply hold it in your hand to eat it. Be sure to watch for the large seeds. Durian is considered a fruit that heats the body, so resist overindulging or you may end up with heartburn.

An easier way to consider for your exotic durian experience is to ask whether a restaurant offers fresh durian in season with sweet sticky rice. Wrapped packages of durian meat are widely available at most supermarkets in Thailand, even off season, as are tubes of durian paste. If you’re still wary, you can get a milder taste of the fruit’s flavour by buying durian ice cream, dried durian chips or durian candy. Boxes of durian candy are an excellent gift to share an exotic taste of Thai fruit with your friends back home.

Custard Apple (In Thai: Noina): Sometimes called a sugar apple, the custard apple suffers from a bit of an identity crisis. It isn’t like any apple most visitors to Thailand would know, and it actually looks similar to an artichoke. Yet, break apart these segments by applying some light pressure with your fingers, or just cut the custard apple open, and you’ll find smooth and juicy flesh inside with a marvellously mellow flavour. The custard apple is most delicious on the outer part, as the flavour diminishes and the flesh gets drier towards the core. Watch out for the large and slippery seeds, which are inedible.

Longan (In Thai: Lamyai): One of the most popular fruits among Thai people, longan are most often sold in bunches. Extremely sweet and very juicy, it takes little effort to open a longan. Squeeze the end of the speckled brown peel around the stem and the fruit pops out. You can easily see the inedible, dark seed in the center through the translucent flesh, which is slippery with a slightly chewy texture similar to a grape. The longan has a refreshingly mild flavour – it’s the perfect place to start for a cautious eater who is apprehensive about trying a new and exotic fruit.

Longkong (In Thai: Longkong): Similar in name and look to longan, the longkong delivers a juicy burst of sweet but not overwhelming flavour. It’s easy to remove the rubbery, speckled brown peel to reveal a thin layer of sticky, translucent flesh you nibble off the large seed. While the flesh of the longkong fruit is pleasantly light and refreshing, be careful not to bite too hard – the seed is very bitter. With this delicious fruit, it won’t be long before your longkong are long gone.

Mangosteen (in Thai: Mungkoot): Known as the “Queen of Fruits”, don’t be fooled by the dark burgundy colour that gives the mangosteen its sombre appearance. Beneath the thick peel, the luscious mangosteen is an absolute treat to eat. You can cut through the peel with a knife, but be careful of juice stains. Use a fork or spoon to scoop out one of the interior segments (called an “aril”) and delight to the wonderfully strong burst of sweet & sour flavour. The juicy mangosteen’s silky flesh melts in your mouth, leaving behind a few dry fibres attached to the seed. Usually a luxury import in cold climates, mangosteens are widely available at a reasonable price in Thailand, so you can indulge all you want.

Rambutan (in Thai: Ngo): While this bright red fruit covered with rubbery hair may look like some kind of alien life form, it’s sweet and juicy with a restrained flavour that stays with you a long time. The rambutan comes with its own, cute serving container when the top half of the peel is removed. You simply hold the bottom half in your hand and nibble the slippery and slightly chewy flesh from the large seed. You can buy a bunch of rambutans in almost any market in Thailand and easily twist off the peel by hand. High season for rambutan is May through October, but you should be able to find them year round. 

Roseapple (in Thai: Chompoo): Other than the peel’s red and green skin, the bell-shaped roseapple is nothing like the apples you enjoy back home. Similar to a pear in size and texture, it has a thin and edible skin. Roseapple flesh has a delightful crunch and is slightly fibrous. The fruit is very juicy, with a hint of rosewater and a mildly sour aftertaste that ends in a dry mouthfeel, making it the perfect choice if you prefer your fruit not too sweet. Roseapples are widely available throughout Thailand year round.

Salacca (In Thai: Sala): The oval-shaped sala, looking somewhat ominous due to the small, sharp barbs that cover the brittle red peel, belies the fruit’s slightly sweet flavour that is reminiscent of pink bubblegum. It’s easy but a bit painful to peel one with your bare hands – Thai people put sala in a strainer and shake them to scrape off the barbs. Inside, you’ll find one to three solidly-textured pieces of dark yellow flesh that have a pleasantly bold and slightly sweet taste.

Tamarind (In Thai: Makham): The provincial tree of Thailand’s Phetchabun province, the tamarind has a long, pod-like fruit with a thin, hard shell. While it’s often used as a flavouring in Thai cooking, the tamarind can be eaten raw for an unusual taste treat. It’s an easy purchase, as most tamarind in Thailand is sold in boxes. You simply crack off the shell to reveal the flesh, which looks like chocolate paste . Strip off the slightly acidic vein that runs down one side of the fruit, then nibble the thick and gooey flesh off the seeds that are inside. The taste is similar to dates, with a slightly sweet and sour tone and very rich.

Santol (In Thai: Krathon): Also known as sour apple, the santol is about the size of a grapefruit. Inside the thick peel, the fruit is divided into four or five segments of slippery, white pulp firmly attached to very large seeds. You can pop the segments out or bite into them like an orange. The pulp is firmly attached to the seed, so you need to suck out the tantalisingly tangy citric juice. Get ready for an initial burst of flavour with a nice long aftertaste. The giant seeds are slippery so be careful to avoid swallowing them.

In Thailand, even tropical fruits that you can get almost anywhere become exotic. For example, take coconut (In Thai: Maprow). A fresh coconut makes a great break during your busy day touring the Kingdom. In many places you can buy a whole, young coconut, often chilled on ice. The seller will lop off the top with a large knife and you can enjoy sipping the mild and clear coconut milk through a straw. When you’re done, use the spoon you were given to scoop out the thin layer of chewy, tender meat from the inside of the shell.

These are just a few of the luscious Thai fruits you can enjoy during your visit to Thailand. There are many more depending on the time of year that you’re here, and to which parts of the Kingdom you go. Ask any Thai person what local fruits you should try. They’ll be happy to make suggestions, show you where to get it, and probably even help you to pick out some of the best. You’ll be smiling yourself after your first bite into a mouth-watering piece of fresh and fantastic Thai tropical fruit.

Things To Know Before Traveling to Thailand

Vacationing in Thailand offers a unique and wonderful experience. Spectacular beaches, awe-inspiring ancient ruins and palatial accommodations make it so that over 60% of Thailand’s visitors are there for their second or more time. Below are a few tips and facts that will help you be well prepared to fully enjoy your experience.

Entry Requirements: If you plan on staying less than 30 days you’ll only need a valid passport (with an expiration no further than 6 months away) and proof of a return ticket. No visa will be required.

Currency: The Baht is Thailand’s currency denomination and it comes in both paper and coin forms. The exchange rate varies, but a rough approximation puts 30 baht worth an equivalent amount to a US dollar. Major credit cards and debit cards are accepted in most restaurants and shopping centers.

Climate: Thailand has a tropical climate and the best time to visit is from November to April during what is known as the high season. May through October coincides with the rainy season, however, Thailand spans a large latitudinal swath and while the northern parts are experiencing monsoons, the southern areas surrounding the Gulf of Thailand are bright, sunny and warm. From March to April the climate is warm and dry with average temperatures in the mid-80s.

What to pack: Due to its tropical climate, Thailand can get somewhat humid so it is recommended that you pack light, airy clothing. Loose cottons and linens are ideal. If you are visiting the northern areas during wintertime, it is advised that you pack a light sweater or jacket.

While visiting temples proper attire is required. This includes covered shoulders for everyone and skirts that extend below the knees for women. Shorts are not allowed so be sure you plan ahead if you intend to enter any Buddhist temples. And remember, it’s considered polite to remove your shoes before you enter!

Language: Thai is the official language of Thailand, but English is widely spoken. Signs are generally in both Thai and English.

Electricity: Thailand’s electric outlets are 220 volts AC. If you will require power, you are advised to bring an adapter kit to allow you access to electricity. Some hotels will have adapters available for a deposit.

Water: Tap water is not safe to drink. It is strongly advised to stick to bottled water. Most hotels offer complimentary bottled water in the rooms on a daily basis. This extends to ice. Be cautious of using ice, however most restaurants serve ice made from government inspected ice factories.

Phone: The international dialing code for Thailand is 66. To make international calls from Thailand, first dial 001, then the country code, followed by the area and phone number. SIM cards are available from local Thai network providers to allow local call/texting.

Royal Family: The King is revered and respected in Thailand and visitors are expected to uphold the same considerations. Speaking disrespectfully or gesturing inappropriately to the Royal Family is punishable under Thai law.

Additional Courtesy: The Buddha is a deity and respect is a priority. Women are not allowed to touch Buddhist monks. However Buddhist teachings influence much of Thai society, so Thai’s usually tend to be relaxed and non-confrontational. Any conflicts can often be resolved with a smile.

Planning a family vacation is never easy. Here's the key to a successful family vacation plan.

Planning a family vacation does not have to be planning for a disaster waiting to happen. Planning ahead is the key to a successful family vacation. Read on for tips that will make your next family vacation the best ever!

Step 1: Decide which airline to fly.

Step 2: If you are traveling with children make sure your vacation is "kid friendly."

Step 3: Most vacation destinations fill up early. Make hotel, car rental and activity reservations as soon as you know what your vacation schedule is.

Step 4: Have a family counsel before the trip and together plan activities that will be fun for everyone. Use a guide with local activities listed. Alternatively give every family member a "day" that is essential to their needs.

Step 5: A well planned trip is essential for a fun trip for everyone. Knowing in advance where you will be and what other sights and activities are close by will keep your schedule fluid and flexible to change.

Step 6: Keep a slot open to do something relaxing without the kids, whether it is soaking in the hot tub, taking a hike, going out for dinner, or taking a walk along the beach.


- Bring along a kit with heavy paper, scissors, and stickers. At the end of each day have the kids make themselves a page with memories collected from that day to put into a scrapbook at the end of the trip.

- If you find that the kids are getting restless don't hesitate to stop early and save whatever activity you missed for another time. Sometimes just getting to the hotel room and maybe taking a dip in the pool is all that is needed to get everyone in the mood for continued site-seeing the next day.

- When brainstorming and planning activities, each family member has to be honest in their opinions but also open-minded to the opinions of the rest of the group.

- If you are traveling with two or more families with children, you can "tag team" some activities so someone is not stuck with all of the children under age five. Usually, half of each couple stayed behind to help in the babysitting effort while the other half went off. Other times you can split the groups up differently so couples could go together.

- If you are staying in an accommodation with a kitchen, you can plan alternate eating meals out and in. After four or five days often people become tired of eating out all the time. Pre-planning when to eat out and what meals to prepare when eating in (and who will prepare them) will help you figure out before the trip which meals you can prepare quickly and what everyone wants to eat.

- If you are flying, it's important to know before you leave the total number of pieces of luggage you have. That includes check through, carry-on and unique sized (like car seats or strollers). You should also know the breakdown of numbers for pieces checking through, carry-on and extras like car seats. Luggage check-in can be crazy. Knowing how many and which pieces ahead of time keeps the chaos to a minimum.

บลิสตันฯ ลุยแผนปีมังกรทอง เน้นสร้างแบรนด์ดันเป้าสิ้นปี 10%

บลิสตัน พร็อพเพอร์ตี้ แมเนจเม้นท์ วางกลยุทธ์ปี 2555 เน้นสร้างแบรนด์ ผ่านการตอกย้ำแบบปากต่อปากจากลูกค้า ชูมาตรฐานการบริการแบบสากลผสมผสานความอ่อนช้อยอย่างไทย พร้อมขยายฐานลูกค้าสู่เมืองท่องเที่ยว เล็งเมียนมาร์ น่าสน หลังเปิดประเทศแล้ว ขณะที่ปีนี้ตั้งเป้าเติบโต 10% จากปีที่ผ่านมาปิดยอด 100 ล้านบาท

กิจจา เหล่าสุวรรณ์ ผู้บริหาร บริษัท บลิสตัน พร็อพเพอร์ตี้ แมเนจเม้นท์ จำกัด และผู้บริหาร บลิสตัน สุวรรณ ปาร์ค วิว กล่าวว่า ปีนี้บริษัทจะให้ความสำคัญกับ บลิสตัน พร็อพเพอร์ตี้ แมเนจเม้นท์มากขึ้น ซึ่งเป็นบริษัทรับจ้างบริหารจัดการโรงแรม และเซอร์วิสเรสซิเด้นท์ต่างๆ หลังจากที่บริษัทได้เปิดให้บริการมาแล้ว 2 ปี และมีลูกค้าให้การตอบรับเป็นที่น่าพอใจ ขณะที่แนวโน้มพร็อพเพอร์ตี้ประเทศไทย โดยเฉพาะในกลุ่มธุรกิจโรงแรมมีอัตราเติบโตอย่างต่อเนื่อง ตั้งแต่ปี 2553 / 2554 ที่ผ่านมามีโรงแรมสร้างใหม่เพิ่มขึ้น ขณะที่การแข่งขันในธุรกิจรับจ้างบริหารจัดการโรงแรม และเซอร์วิสเรสซิเด้นท์มีการแข่งขันที่ค่อนข้างสูง เนื่องจากโรงแรมมีจำนวนมาก ดังนั้นผู้ที่เข้ามาทำธุรกิจดังกล่าวจึงมีจำนวนเพิ่มสูงขึ้น ทั้งบริษัทต่างประเทศ และบริษัทของคนไทย แต่จากประสบการณ์ที่คลุกคลีกับวงการดังกล่าวมานาน ทำให้เห็นว่าผู้ประกอบการที่เข้ามาทำธุรกิจรับจ้างบริหารจัดการโรงแรม และเซอร์วิสเรสซิเด้นท์ที่มีประสบการณ์โดยตรงยังมีไม่มากนัก บริษัทจึงมองเห็นโอกาสการเติบโตของธุรกิจ

สำหรับแผนการดำเนินธุรกิจในปี 2555 นี้บริษัทจะให้ความสำคัญกับการสร้างแบรนด์บลิสตัน พร็อพเพอร์ตี้ แมเนจเม้นท์ ให้เป็นที่รู้จักมากขึ้น ซึ่งที่ผ่านมาการรับรู้ของเจ้าของพร็อพเพอร์ตี้ต่างๆจะมาจากการบอกต่อเป็นหลัก อันเนื่องมาจากความพอใจที่บริษัทเข้าไปบริหารงานให้กับพร็อพเพอร์ตี้ของลูกค้า ซึ่งปีนี้บริษัทจะให้ความสำคัญกับเรื่องของการบริการที่มากขึ้น โดยเฉพาะการบริการที่เป็นมาตรฐานสากลแต่จะผสมผสานความอ่อนน้อมแบบไทยๆเข้าไปด้วย โดยผ่านการให้บริการจากพนักงานที่ได้รับการฝึกอบรมมาเป็นอย่างดี รวมถึงการออกแบบที่เป็นเอกลักษณ์ และใส่ใจในทุกๆรายละเอียดของลูกค้าที่เข้ามาพัก เพื่อให้เกิดการบอกต่อที่เพิ่มขึ้น ขณะเดียวกันบริษัทยังได้วางแผนที่จะขยายธุรกิจรับจ้างบริหารจัดการโรงแรม และเซอร์วิสเรสซิเด้นท์ไปยังต่างจังหวัดเพิ่มเติม โดยขณะนี้ได้เริ่มมองเข้าไปตามเมืองท่องเที่ยวต่างๆ รวมไปถึงการขยายไปยังต่างประเทศอีกด้วย

ในส่วนของการขยายไปยังต่างประเทศนั้น ในช่วงแรกจะเริ่มจากประเทศเพื่อนบ้านแถบอาเซียน ซึ่งที่ผ่านมา บริษัทได้เดินทางไปดูสถานที่ในโรงแรมหลายๆแห่งที่น่าสนใจ ได้แก่ พม่า เพราะหลังจากที่บริษัทได้ศึกษาตลาดดังกล่าวระยะหนึ่งพบว่าพม่าเป็นประเทศที่ไม่มีการลงทุนใหม่ๆมานาน ขณะที่โรงแรมที่เปิดให้บริการค่อนข้างน้อยและส่วนใหญ่ยังไม่พอกับความต้องการ ฉะนั้น จึงเป็นโอกาสที่ดีที่จะเข้าไปรับจ้างบริหารงานให้กับเจ้าของโรงแรม ซึ่งขณะนี้อยู่ระหว่างการศึกษา ก่อนที่จะเข้าไปลงทุนอย่างจริงจัง

กิจจา กล่าวถึง ประชาคมเศรษฐกิจอาเซียน หรือ AEC ที่จะเกิดขึ้นในปี 2558 นั้น ว่าเป็นโอกาสที่ดี เพราะจะส่งผลให้การทำธุรกิจในประเทศแถบอาเซียนสะดวกยิ่งขึ้น และมองข่าเป็นตลาดใหม่ที่น่าลงทุน เพราะปัจจุบันตลาดอเมริกา และยุโรปมีปัญหาในด้านเศรษฐกิจ ดังนั้น ประเทศในแถบเซาท์อีสท์ เอเชียจึงเป็นโซนที่นักลงทุนให้ความสนใจ ขณะที่บริษัทเอง มองว่าการขยายธุรกิจเข้าไปเป็นโอกาสที่ดี เพราะเมื่อมีนักธุรกิจเดินทางเข้ามามากขึ้น โรงแรมในพื้นที่ต่างๆ ของทุกประเทศต้องเปลี่ยนแปลงและพัฒนาการให้บริการ เพื่อรองรับกับกลุ่มลูกค้าที่เพิ่มสูงขึ้น โดยเฉพาะอย่างยิ่งปรพเทศพม่า เนื่องจากเป็นประเทศปิดมานาน และเมื่อเปิดประเทศขึ้นมา คนจึงมีความต้องการที่จะเข้าไปท่องเที่ยวมากขึ้น และนักธุรกิจต้องการเข้าไปลงทุนมากขึ้นเช่นกัน

สำหรับผลประกอบการในปี 2554 ที่ผ่านมาบริษัทรับรายได้อยู่ที่ 100 ล้านบาท และในปีนี้คาดว่าจะเติบโตเพิ่มขึ้น 10% จากปัจจุบันที่มีลูกค้าในกลุ่มโรงแรม และเซอร์วิสเรสซิเด้นท์ 2 ราย คือ บ้านเค เรสซิเด้นท์ บาย บลิสตัน และ วีว่า การ์เด้นท์ บาย บลิสตัน ขณะที่ปีนี้ตั้งเป้าจะมีลูกค้าเพิ่มขึ้นอย่างน้อยอีก 1 ราย
