Nakhon Ratchasima’s Culture Office has invited more than 30 graffiti artists to create works on the theme ”Korat: the art city” after the government named Chiang Rai, Krabi, and Nakhon Ratchasima or Korat as it is colloquially known, as pilot cities for arts. The city has also been selected to host the 2nd Thailand Biennale, a biannual international contemporary art exhibition.

Local residents are working alongside government officials and the private sector to plan future art events and city development that will see it truly become an art city.

The graffiti artist answered the call and joined forces to create the “K Battle Thailand Present” work last Friday (November 8), which stretches for 49 metres and is the longest graffiti work in the northeast region of Thailand.

Bangkok makes river the focus for Loy Krathong

Bangkok’s official Loy Krathong festivities on November 11 will take place near the Rama VIII Bridge, putting the focus squarely on the importance of waterways to traditional Thai culture, says Pichaya Nakwatchara, deputy permanent secretary of the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration.

He also announced a list of 30 public parks elsewhere across the city that will host events that evening and urged everyone to use only natural materials to build their krathong floats to avoid polluting the streams and ponds.

He asked that families have just one krathong each to lessen the waste.

Alcohol, fireworks and floating lanterns are being discouraged.

There will be no floating of krathong allowed at six of the parks – Suan Luang Rama IX, Queen Sirikit, Watchara Phirom, Benjakitti, Siri Phirom and Bueng Nong Bon.

Last year, Bangkok city workers retrieved 841,327 krathong from waterways, of which almost 95 per cent were made from materials that readily decompose. The rest had Styrofoam structures.

The parks to visit for Loy Krathong fun:

Lumpini Park in Pathumwan district and Chatuchak and Suan Rod Fai parks in Chatuchak;

In Ladkrabang, Suan Pranakorn and 60th Anniversary of Queen Sirikit Park;

In Phra Nakhon, Suan Saranrom and Ramini Nat and Santi Chai Prakan parks;

In Thung Khru, Thonburi Rom Park;

In Bueng Kum, Serithai and Nawamin Phirom parks;

The Italian embassy in Thailand is hosting a discussion and book presentation titled “Stories from the East, Stories from the West” in November, said Lorenzo Galanti, Italy’s ambassador to Thailand.

The event will take place on Saturday, November 9, from 4 to 6 pm at the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC, 939 Rama I Rd, Wang Mai, Pathum Wan District, BTS National Stadium). It is open to the general public.

Among the topics up for debate are:

How do cultures continue to differentiate themselves notwithstanding globalisation?

What does a Western author look for, today, when setting her/his literary work in Thailand? Why does a ‘Westerner’ choose to live in the East and vice-versa? What is today’s perception of the West from the East? Is there a cultural model than is “happier” than others?

The discussion will be stimulated by the readings of excerpts from Stories from the East, Stories from the West – an anthology of micro-stories gathered and published for this occasion – in which Italian and Thai authors address the theme of cultural identity and cross-cultural encounters.

Thai philosopher, poet and writer Naowarat Pongpaiboon will participate as a special guest.

Panelists at the event are Igino Domanin (essayist), Asst Prof Paolo Euron (Chulalongkorn University), Lawrence Osborne (writer), Fabio Novel (writer) and Asst Prof Verita Sriratana (Chulalongkorn University) with Francesca Andreini (writer) as moderator.

Building sustainability with the power of coffee

Building sustainability with the power of coffee

Oct 30. 2019

Based on the “Mae Fah Luang” project, under the royal patronage of Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn and King Rama IX, ethnic communities in Chiang Rai province were provided with knowledge about growing coffee.

And thanks to this knowledge, the villagers have been able to change their lives and become more sustainable, while Chiang Rai’s coffee has earned a name for itself across the world. This has also given rise to “coffee tourism”, which was initiated and operated by the Ban Pang Khon Tourism Group in order to extend the coffee lifestyle of the generation to be sustainable based on the idea of self-sufficiency.

Coffee is life

Intharit Wuyayaku, Ban Pang Khon village chief of Chiang Rai Muang district’s Huai Chomphu sub-district, said: “Coffee is our life because we use wood from coffee trees as firewood, our side dish is coffee, and when we are full, we rinse our mouth with coffee water. We then go to work to take care of the coffee tree and coffee-production process. So, if the price of coffee falls, our lives are over.”

He also talked about push to launch coffee tourism to boost income.

“I noticed tourists coming to Ban Pang Khon to enjoy the cherry trees, and thought that if these trees bring people to the village in the winter, why not look for something new for them to do?

“So, I began hunting for information and attended many travel-related seminars, until I met Budsaba Sitthakarn, a full-time lecturer at Mae Fah Luang University. She advised me on tourism management and product development.”

he Pang Khon tourism group began a year ago and has been very active. Villagers have been improving their homes to offer homestay to tourists, while the elderly are being encouraged to use their skills to create trendy items for sale. As for youngsters, they too have been pulled in to make colourful pom-pom earrings and beautifully embroidered items. They are also being trained to keep the tourists safe.

“Tourism will help the younger generation return to focus on agriculture. After studying in the city, they do not seem to be that interested in farming, so I realised that encouraging them to travel will encourage youngsters to return to their inheritance.

“I used to work in Taiwan, and upon returning home, I created the famous Akha Noi brand by opening two cafes for children. I believe that I have done this for my family. I want to develop coffee on Doi Pang Khon to become more famous and am also pushing for coffee tourism in the cold season from the end of December to January, when I village is full of cherry trees,” he said.

As part of the coffee tourism programme, visitors will get to enjoy the beauty of the northern region as well experience the life of coffee planters, and witness the process of making coffee, from drying and roasting until it is brewed and is poured into a cup. The aroma of Doi Pang Khon coffee is distinctive with a caramel flavour and a slight blend of cinnamon that grows along with the coffee on top of the mountain.

“If the price of coffee falls, life will end because our village only grows coffee and cold-season fruit,” the village chief added.

Café on Doi

The Pang Khon coffee shop on the foot of the Doi Pang Khon mountain was built with simple natural materials and is surrounded by trees, giving visitors a beautifully peaceful ambience to enjoy their cup of coffee.

The coffee is served by the local barista, an Akha girl with expertise in grinding, brewing and even creating beautiful latte art.

The café also offers souvenirs.

Emotions and Experience

How does one create a different product when there is so much competition? Chiang Rai alone has 35 villages where coffee is grown. Budsaba, the person responsible for the Tea and Coffee Tourism Management Project, said everyone should value emotions – feelings that build one’s identity.

For instance, Baan Doi Ngam’s identity is living in harmony with forests and fields. There the spirit of agriculture and strong.

Ban Pang Khon, meanwhile, is charming with its cherry blossoms lining the roads leading to coffee terraces.

“The distinct point of Ban Pang Khon is that it is located in Muang district, and its strength is that the villagers are like friends who have grown up together,” she said.

The tourism season on Doi Pang Khon has started, and though the cherry blossoms have yet to bloom, the coffee plantations offer a great a great getaway.

Upgraded from district to a province in 2011, Bueng Kan in Thailand’s northeast is a popular tourism destination thanks to its historical and archaeological sites as well as its celebration of Songkran, the Thai New year, the Rocket Festival and long-boat racing. It’s not short on natural attractions either, among them Phu Wua Wildlife Sanctuary, the Chet Si, Tad Kinari and Tad Wimanthip waterfalls, Bueng Khong Long and Phu Tok.

Visitors can also enjoy a taste of Laos in the area where the Mekong River meets our northeastern neighbour’s Borikhamsai District and where another Friendship Bridge will soon be built.

A must-see is Three Rocks Whale or Hin Sam Wan in Thai. Located in a conservation area in the national reserve covering the Kala rainforest, Phu Sing forest and Pink Dong forest, it is made up of three rocks perched on the mountain that are thought to date back some 75 million years. The rocks bear a remarkable resemblance to a family of whales – father, mother and baby – and offer one of the most beautiful viewpoints in Phu Sing.

Nearby is the equally impressive Phu Sing rock, the result of a geological change in the earth’s crust and a place of immense natural beauty. Phu Sing has important natural features including the Phu Sing Tham Field, the Lan Tham Viewpoint, Ruesi Cave, Hin Chang, Hin Railway, Lan Hin Lai and Phu Sing Rock Wall.

The high and isolated Phu Thok in Na Sabaeng subdistrict is where you’ll find Wat Chetiya Kiri Wihan or Wat Phu Thok as it is known locally and from here, it’s possible to see the mountains in Nakhon Phanom. Years of manual labour went into the building of a 7-storey spiral staircase which leads to the cloisters and cave. From the top, tourists can see the beauty of the landscape below. The highlight of Phu Thok is the Buddhist temple, which contains the Buddha’s relics. It is considered a magical place because when a stone separated from a larger stone, it did not tumble down the hillside and is often likened to Golden Rock Pagoda in Myanmar. Phu Thok doesn’t normally allow visitors but is open to all comers between April 10 to 16 every year. Another must-see is Phu Lanka National Park, a massive area that stretches from Phai Lom Subdistrict in Nakhon Phanom to Bueng Kan’s Seka District.

The best time to visit is from May to October when the wildflowers, wild orchids and paphiopedilum are in full bloom at the top of Phu Lanka. Tourists can also explore the nature trail, waterfalls and the Pha Sanga Buddha Cave. Those wishing to climb to the top of Phu Lanka to admire either sunrise or sunset should contact the park’s staff at least 7 days in advance.

And if you are planning to visit, be prepared for lots of long walks and steep climbs. They are worth every minute of the views you’ll experience.

The 137 Pillars House in Chiang Mai has made elaborate arrangements for next month’s Loy Krathong festival – better known as Yi Peng in the North.

The full moon on November 11 will again see celebrants floating lotus-shaped krathong decorated with flowers, candles and joss sticks on rivers and canals to pay respect for the water spirits and carry away all the sadness and setbacks of the previous year.

Others will be doing the same with candlelit kongming lanterns that drift into the night sky.

The 137 Pillars House has 30 suites set around a former colonial teak homestead in a leafy residential enclave a few minutes’ walk from the historic Tha Pae Gate, the Ping River and boutique shops.

The hotel festivities include a Lanna-style market and gala evening with pre-dinner cocktails, a three-course dinner, traditional entertainment, umbrella painting and making Lanna flags. After dinner, guests’ krathong will be floated in the Ping.

Rates start at Bt32,800 for two and include a night’s accommodation, all the festivities and breakfast the following day. Additional nights with breakfast start at Bt25,000.

Non-guests are welcome for dinner, cocktails and entertainment for Bt3,900.
