SEVENTY EIGHT percent of Thai travellers say their motivation to travel is to “go to places my friends have not been” when they were asked about travel motivation, according to new research conducted by Booking.com. For most nationalities, the top motivation to travel is straightforward: to get some downtime. This makes it the top travel motivation to all nationalities with the exception of the Danish and the French, who cite “being free to act how I feel” as their top motivation to travel. Finally, for some travellers, travel is a question of social status: particularly among Indonesians (75 percent), Indians (75 percent), Thais (78 percent), and Filipinos. If you look at the countries that Thais travel to relatively often, it is clear that they know how to appreciate their country and the neighbours.

On February 20, the Ratchadaphisek Criminal Court did indeed decide that Russian citizen Dmitry Ukrainsky should be extradited to the United States, but the article has missed some key points:l The same court last year had ruled that Ukrainsky should be extradited to Russia and the judge confirmed this on Thursday;l The judge also said on Thursday that this was the first time in the history of Thailand that two countries have sought the extradition of the same person and both requests were honoured;l The judge also said the last decision was up to Thailand’s Foreign Ministry;l Ukrainsky’s lawyers still have 30 days to file an appeal.

According to the Interior Ministry there are 6.1 million guns registered in Thailand, and with a population of 67 million, Thailand is a world leader in gun-related homicide, on par with the US. However the important fact is that the US has a murder rate that’s lower than the global average. Brazil has a national murder rate seven times higher than the US, but owns only 6.7 per cent as many guns per person. This suggests that when guns are not handy other means will be used, and therefore the logic behind the gun control Lungstib advocates is highly flawed. Lungstib also states 75 per cent of prisoners incarcerated in the US have not been convicted of a crime.
The Mazda MX-5, the world’s best-selling open-top sports car, has long been the symbol for fun and freedom, and the fourth generation now comes with a Retractable Fastback (RF) version. In Thailand the fourth-gen MX-5 was introduced back in 2016 with the soft top version, which was replaced by the RF last year. When open, the rear roof remains on the body while the other parts are stowed neatly in the space behind the seats. While the soft top was offered only with automatic transmission, the RF now has a manual gearbox version as well. In the manual version, there isn’t enough space to put all three pedals in a linear fashion, and the driver finds them positioned towards to right side.
Somsak Pola wants us to name one non-Muslim country where the Muslims have assimilated. Has he ever heard of the United States, which has 3.5 million Muslims, who with rare exceptions, live peacefully with non-Muslims? Although most people in Malaysia are Muslim, they are a minority in Penang and live in perfect harmony with Hindus, Buddhists and Christians. Pick up the book “The Myth of the Muslim Tide” by Doug Saunders and you’ll see many examples of Muslims assimilating well in non-Muslim countries. Only a bigot would make no distinction between secular or moderate Muslims and Islamic extremists.

WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump is due to meet Friday afternoon with China's top trade negotiator, as talks continue to try to defuse the escalation of the tariff war between the world's economic superpowers. The White House said Trump would meet with China's Vice Premier Liu He, who is leading the delegation from Beijing. By themselves, Lagarde told the US radio broadcast Marketplace, the tariffs are having "minimal" effect on global trade but they are also damaging business confidence and weighing on stock markets. "So the combined three impacts -- trade, markets, confidence -- actually reduce global growth and certainly explain our downsided projection," Lagarde said, referring to the IMF's recent cuts to global growth forecasts. Global stock markets have been battered since last year through the ups and downs of the trade war but have tended to react positively to signs relations at least will not deteriorate further.

The 71st anniversary of the Karen National Day was held this year under uncertainty and anxiety as the Karen National Union (KNU) withdrew from the on-going peace process, leaving little hope for the Karen who dream of returning home. After Bo Mya died in 2006, a new generation of leaders emerged and decided to join the Nay Pyi Taw-sponsored Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement (NCA) in 2015. Surapong Kongchanteuk, director of Karen Studies and Development Centre in Thailand, said the Tatmadaw offensive against KNU strongholds over the past two decades has forced the displacement of thousands of Karen refugees to Thailand. Bangkok reached a deal with Nay Pyi Taw to repatriate them a few years ago, but the enforcement was at a slow pace. This week, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) reported that the repatriation of more than 500 Myanmar refugees – the third attempt of its kind since 2016 – was taking place.
