Cannabis can be legalized in Thailand

At the end of October 2018, the NLA (National Legislative Assembly) announced at a special press conference a strategy for the legalization of marijuana in Thailand, which should be held before the end of this year. The final decision on legalization has not yet been made, but active consultations are currently underway with the Ministry of Public Health to close this issue before the New Year. It should be immediately noted that we are talking about the legalization of medical marijuana, but even such an approach is interesting for several reasons, not only for Thai citizens, but also for guests of the Kingdom.

Cambodia in Thailand – Phimai Historical Park

Every year, thousands of people make trips from Thailand to Cambodia only to see the ancient temple complex of Angkor Wat with their own eyes.

Reconstruction of the central beach in Pattaya continues

If you plan to relax in Pattaya in the late spring or summer of 2018, then for you can be useful information about the ongoing reconstruction of the northern part of the Central beach.
