    We throughly enjoy your website and have been to many places and events only found out on your website. We thank you very much as it is very difficult getting time frames in a country where the present is more important than the past or future.
    So, do you know of any festivities in Bangkok for the king’s birthday on the 5th? I know he will stay down in Hu Hin but if you know of anything happening in Bangkok, please let me know.
    Thanks, Rebecca
