Internet Marketing Seminar Chiangmai

It has been a long time since I updated this blog. I was totally busy with so many things and updating my personal blog has to be sacrificed. Anyway I just thought I will let you guys and girls know about the Internet Marketing Seminar which is being held at Chinagmai, Thailand.
In the past we didn’t have many IM (internet marketing) seminar held here in Thailand with English speakers. Of course we had Thai webmaster conducting webmaster seminar where we discussed about marketing online and making money on internet. But this is probably the major seminar being held during recent times. We had similar seminars and workshops held in Singapore quiet often, but not here in Thailand. You can see more details about the Chiangmai IM Seminar here..

Thailand Internet Business Seminar.
Some details about this IM Seminar in Thailand.
The Seminar is designed for both novice and experts. So even if you are new to the internet business this seminar will help you become successful. The speakers include Jon Shugart (Keyword Rockstar fame), George Brown (19 years old self made millionaire), Jay Deiboldt (Google Slapper), Kenneth Yu (Twitter expert), Gideon Shalwick (blogging expert), Desmond Ong, Jani G (traffic expert) and Greg Jacobs the man behind the seminar.
During this seminar you will learn How to identify an online market and build a winning product. Next you will learn how to build a website, drive visitors to your site and make money out of it. You will also learn how to write compelling sales letter which converts. But the real benefit of this seminar in my opinion is the opportunity to meet these experts, network with them and other fellow webmasters. That is going to be the biggest asset in the long run.
I suggest you to take a look at their website for more details.

Military Coup Bangkok Thailand

Sources from Bangkok reports that the Thai army took control of Bangkok and the military is attempting to seize power in Bangkok. Thai military announced that it would set up a commission to reform the constitution despite Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra declaring a state of emergency from New York.  According to CNN, Thailand’s opposition Party of Democratic Reform seized control of a Thai television station in Bangkok on Tuesday, 19th September, 2006 and announced it is behind the coup attempt and has the loyalty of Thailand’s armed forces.
More news and video clips from Bangkok can be seen here at Reuters and hopefully on some of the other wordpress2 blogs.

Long Live King

Our beloved King, His Majesty recently had undergone a surgery and is fast recovering. Even at the hospital His Majesty cares about his beloved people. His Majesty the King has expressed concern over the plight of his people in flood-prone areas of Prachuap Khiri Khan and Phetchaburi provinces. The Royal Household Bureau has passed on the King’s concern and asked for daily updates on the flood situation in the two central provinces.
Many a times foreign tourists who come to Bangkok wonder by seeing the love and repect Thai people show to our beloved King. Because His Majesty loves people of Thailand and we love him.
I recently read this news in bangkok post.
One woman stands out among the thousands of visitors in yellow shirts who every day visit Siriraj Hospital to show support for His Majesty the King after his spine operation last Thursday. Pornrawee Duangmanee arrived at Siriraj from Prachuap Khiri Khan’s Pran Buri district the day the King underwent surgery. She will not go home until the King is discharged because she is determined that he has at least one companion there at all times.
Long live King. We love our King.

Bangkok Airport Arrivals

Bangkok airport is currently situated at Don-muang which is around half an hour drive from the heart of Bangkok city. Flights details of Bangkok airport arrivals and departures are available with most travel agents and ticketing offices. You can also see the real time Bangkok flight schedule details including arrivals and departure at both Bangkok international airport and domestic aiport at the official web site of Airports of Thailand Public Company Limited (AOT) Check the Bangkok airport arrivals and departure timings here

Update: I think the above link is no longer giving you the latest arrival schedules at new Bangkok airport. I have found another way to provide you up to date information on new Bangkok airport arrivals.

Once you arrive at the Bangkok airport the friendly airport staff will greet you with pleasing smiles. Thailand is known as the land of smiles. You will be absolutely comfortable at the airport. One you get your baggage and come out to the Bangkok airport arrival area take a left to find services like airport Taxi and hotel bookings. You can trust these official services though they tend to be bit more expensive than the regular Bangkok taxi cabs outside the Bangkok airport.

BTS Skytrain

Most of you who had visited Bangkok city know that BTS Sky Train is one of the easiest way to get around in Bangkok. BTS stands for Bangkok mass Transport System. In peek hours Bangkok city roads always have heavy traffic jam. If you choose to reach your destination by a taxi car, then you most probably will get frustrated by the long ‘Q’ of vehicles in Bangkok roads. Use sky trains to travel to places close to the BTS stations. BTS sky trains in Bangkok have the capacity to carry over 1,000 passengers and is faster and safer than a taxi car. The sky trains run daily between 6:00 am and 12:00 midnight with frequent service throughout the day. See some pictures of BTS sky train captured using my Sony digital camera.

Bangkok to Germany Worldcup

Bangkok is now in soccer mood. Like the many cities around the world, Germany worldcup fever has hit the city of Bangkok also. People at Bangkok are glued to their television sets watching their favorite team in action.
One of my friends got lucky and won a free ticket to watch the Germany worldcup. She went to Germany and came back with a surprise news. She found Bangkok Restaurant in Germany. I know that, thai food is famous and there are many Thai restaurants in many countries. But a Bangkok restaurant in Germany was something different. Here is a picture of the restaurant.
