Prices start at Bt6,500 for a stay in an Avani Garden View room, daily breakfast for two, two Sky seat tickets for the show, round trip transfers to the theatre and a Thai set dinner for two at Sala Rim Nam. A minimum stay of two nights is required and terms and conditions apply. “Kaan” is being performed nightly except Monday and takes the audience into a fantasy world where the hero, also called Kaan, encounters characters from Thai legends. But what really makes “Kaan” stand out is its special effects that are so life-like that viewers feel like they are part of a film, close to the furious sea giantess Nang Phanthurat or the black dragon horse Maa Nil Mungkorn from Thai literary work “Phra Aphai Manee” and watching the crocodile king Chalawan transform into a giant alligator fighting with Kraithong, who no longer has a modified raft made from a bamboo tree but a steel contraption complete with turbo engine.

A majority of people see no possibility for the country's two major political parties -- Pheu Thai and Democrat -- to join hands to set up a coalition government after the next general election although they want them to do so, according to the result of an opinion survey by the National Institute of Development Administration, or Nida Poll. The poll was carried out on June 21-23 on 1,250 people aged 18 and over of various levels of education and occupations throughout the country. On the possibility for Pheu Thai and Democrat parties to jointly set up a government after the next election, a majority of the respondents, 53.84%, said this would definitely not be possible as the two parties hold different political ideologies and policies and their conflicts have long been deep-rooted; 29.36%, however, believed there is a certain level of possibility for them to do so but some of their members might disagree; 6.32% said the possibility is high because both could possibly adhere more importance to the country's interests; and, 10.48% are uncertain or have no answers. Asked whether they want to see the two parties join hands to set up a coalition government, a majority, 63.60%, said they want to see this happen for the sake of political stability; 26.88% said they do not want this to happen, reasoning that they should separately play a role of the government or the opposition; and, 9.52% are uncertain. Asked what if new political parties are set up to support the present government to continue to be in power, 53.52% said they agree to this in the hope that they would be new alternatives and help reduce political conflicts; 31.28% disagreed, saying that it would be a perpetuation of power of the present military-installed government which has restricted the rights and liberties of the people; and, 15.20% are uncertain.

Basically, this means that the recording, when played through a decent system, should sound just like the artists are performing right in front of you. This means that you’ll first need a source player (whether it’s a record player, CD player or even your Macbook. Do not panic, as those are considered really high-end, and for much less (for example Bt50,000) you can get a decent-sounding and musical system that will give you countless hours of sonic enjoyment. However, some prefer vintage record players, which is also widely available in the market, and easily accessible via the internet. For CD players, there is a wide range of products available, from a few thousand bucks to over a million.

During that time off, the two-time major champion reunited with Ian Baker-Finch who has advised Ryu on her short game over the past few years. “Obviously, I feel good,” said Ashok, who joins Simi Mehra as the only Indian women who hold LPGA Tour cards.

In Thailand, the SLC is available in two versions – the SLC 300 AMG Dynamic with the regular turbocharged 2.0-litre engine priced at Bt3.99 million, and the SLC 43, which is powered by a 3.0-litre twin turbo engine and priced at Bt4.99 million. The heart of the SLC 43 is its V6 twin turbo engine that is also shared with other models such as the recently-launched GLC 43. Take the SLC 43 to the track like I did and you’ll have a great time. At the Thailand Circuit, the SLC 43 provided high levels of driving pleasure of driving a powerful rear-wheel-driven car. In terms of design, it is a pity that the SLC 43 doesn’t stand out much when compared to the SLC 300, which actually also gets AMG design treatment.
