It's April, we're in Bangkok and it's HOT HOT HOT. In just 1 week the whole country is going to stop for Songkran. The Songkran week, traditionally, is a time for family, friends, reflection, relief and hope for a prosperous 12 months to come. In many ways it is similar to the Western Christmas period. It is a time of famine and drought where natural resources are stretched and the prized items become exhaulted. Water is in short supply so what do we do? We use it to honour our elders. Traditionally the water is poured over the feet and hands of our older family members as a sign of respect. Dues are paid at the temple and then the family enjoys time together in the way that people do all over the world...with food.

This month (February 2015) marina house celebrates being open for 7 years. A huge amount of our success is down to our unique and stunning location. Our greatest asset is our beautiful riverside decking.

As most people are aware Thailand's government has been in limbo for the better part of 2014 with protests, failed elections and random violence. During the week of May 19th 2014 this situation has changed significantly. This article aims to provide a "real-life" version of how this has affected (or not) the life of our residents and people of Bangkok.

This subject is THE hot topic at the moment. There is plenty of information online about this subject to give a back-ground if people are interested. I am writing this today to help people understand how this has affected marina house to this point. In basic terms it has caused about 1 hour of delays on 1 day since it began. By Bangphlat standards this is actually quite a lot.

Many people ask "What is there to do in Bangphlat?" when they arrive at marina house. My answer is always "Thankfully not a lot". The highlights of Bangphlat are its riverside location, Tesco Lotus and its proximity to lots of interesting areas.

For every day survival Bangphlat has it all. When you start to need more than this Pin Klao provides 80% of the rest.
