PM Yingluck pledges splurge on developing south of Thailand PDF Print E-mail

PM YingluckPrime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra on September 15 named Patong Beach, Old Phuket Town and Promthep Cape as three Andaman tourist attractions to receive "emergency budget" support.

Also on the list to receive special attention were Phi Phi Island and Ao Nang, both in Krabi province, to make them more "tourist friendly" ahead of the Asean Economic Community (AEC) coming into effect in 2015.

"We have a plan to develop 29 top tourism destinations throughout Thailand. There are five such destinations in the Andaman region included in the plan: Patong Beach, Old Phuket Town, Promthep Cape, Phi Phi Island and Ao Nang Beach, "PM Yingluck told guests at a dinner talk organized by the Krabi Provincial Office and Matichon Group.

With about 14.3 million tourists having already visited the Kingdom this year, PM Yingluck expects the Thai tourism industry to be making about 2 trillion baht a year by the year 2015.

The jump in expected revenue relies heavily on the hopes that the AEC will bolster Thailand's tourism industry. "We now have to develop an effective marketing strategy that will allow us to maintain our existing markets, while also drawing in new markets.

Krabi Looks Forward to a Breath of Fresh Care PDF Print E-mail

A brand new, state-of-the art, private Krabi hospital is nearing completion and due to welcome its first patients in 2012.

Krabi International Hospital

Lucky Krabi residents will soon be able to take advantage of superior health care facilities, when the long-awaited Krabi Nakharin International Hospital finally opens its doors in the second quarter of 2012.

This much needed international hospital will offer cutting-edge medical treatment and, with one hundred beds in its modern, six story building, the capability to house a large number of inpatients. Visiting hours should prove stress free too, thanks to a generous provision of on-site parking, for up to one hundred cars. Although subject to some initial delays, the construction of the sleek, new building (which is being project managed by well known Thai developers, Krabinakharin Ltd), is now in the final stages. Located on Pisalpop Road at T.Paknum, Krabi, it is destined to become a prominent and familiar Krabi landmark.

‘Krabi is currently undergoing rapid economic growth and marked expansion, which in turn is being supported by a number of high profile development projects. These include the prestigious Port Takola Marina, the impressive Royal Krabi Marina, a number of select Krabi villas, hotels and resorts and now the imposing Krabi Nakharin International Hospital’, states Ton Loriers, managing director of Ton Company Ltd, the premier architecture and construction company in Krabi. The local Krabi community will benefit significantly from the superlative care, equipment and resources that this first class facility is expected to provide.

Ton CompanyOn the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the founding of Ton Company Ltd, we talk to the managing director, Pierre-Yves Loriers, a.k.a. Ton, about the company’s origins and vision 

“I arrived in Krabi in January 2000. Previously, I had only visited Thailand on a 10 day trip to Bangkok and Phuket. My preference at the time was for Vietnam, where I had plans to start a villa operation (Ton has a business school and service industry background, working for 12 years in The Peninsula Beverley Hills, a luxury hotel in Los Angeles), but after a month there I decided to explore other areas in the region.

From Rocky Hillside to 5 Star Luxury PDF Print E-mail

Koh Lanta VillasThe design and construction of Baan Kantiang See, a unique villa-only family resort in Koh Lanta, is Ton Company’s biggest project to date. Here, Pierre-Yves Loriers (Ton), the managing director, explains some of the challenges involved and how they were overcome to create this beautiful new holiday complex. 

“Our clients approached us in April 2007. After two years of searching for the perfect piece of land, they had finally found their ideal spot: nearly 6.5 rai on a steep hillside overlooking the breathtaking Kantiang Bay in the south of Koh Lanta. They wanted to create a family-friendly, villa-only resort, with large individual units and a central pool – all with panoramic sea views. They had a clear concept of what was required: it was then up to us to transform that into reality.”

Nok Air to Provide a New Service Between Bangkok and Krabi PDF Print E-mail

Thailand has a thriving tourism industry, and efficient transport links are crucial for ensuring the smooth transportation of thousands of tourists every year. With the recent announcement that Nok Air will launch a new domestic service between Bangkok’s Don Mueang Airport and Krabi, it seems that travelling within Thailand is set to become easier than ever. Nok Air’s announcement is particularly good news for passengers because the company aims to be the leading high-value airline in both Thailand and Asia. Indeed, by keeping its fares low, Nok Air seeks to provide affordable travel, whilst still offering the warm hospitality for which Thailand is so famous.

The company has been trading since 2004, so it is a well established player in the airline industry, and it now serves more domestic routes in Thailand than any other airline. Nok Air’s branding is also straightforward and well-known in Thailand. The company’s name is derived from the Thai word ‘nok’, which means ‘bird’, and this symbolizes the freedom and independence that is made possible by air travel. The company has also been very astute in choosing yellow as its corporate colour, as this represents warmth and friendship in Thai culture.
