DPA

After heavy monsoon rains in Thailand, at least 70,000 houses are underwater, especially in the central regions. So far, 30 provinces have been affected, including the historic region of Sukhothai, 400 kilometres north of Bangkok. Although the most important tourist attractions have been spared so far, tropical storm Dianmu has devastated most access roads, the Bangkok Post newspaper quoted local tour operators as saying on Thursday.

In several places in the catchment area, in… Read More “Thailand’s Bangkok and Ayutthaya hit by severe flooding”

Those expectations should easily be fulfilled when the EQS enters showrooms in Europe at the end of the year priced from 98,000 euro… Read More “Road test: Mercedes strikes back at Tesla with electric EQS flagship”

Bourdain went to a lot of places, but there’s something about his childhood hot dog stand in New Jersey, Hiram’s, that sticks out to me most of all his journeys. One day I’d like to make sole meunière because Julia Child was obsessed with it. David Chang literally weeps trying the chicke… Read More “I Tried 30 Mustards This Summer. These Were the Best.”
