Highlighting Gastronomy Tourism In Thailand

When you just want to relax and forget about everything that causes you stress, the best option is Sathorn Hotel that is located in a quiet and peaceful setting. This may be somewhat surprising because the internationally acclaimed shopping district is within walking distance. Many of Bangkok’s finest hotels can be found in the Sathorn area including world class dining options.

According to Tourism and Sports Minister KobkarnWattanavrangkul the highlights of the new tourism campaign are gastronomy tourism and local food. One third of tourist expenditures go to gastronomy. A large portion of the budget goes to food because restaurants in Thailand offer a wide range of choices from local to international cuisine.

The national tourism marketing campaign called Amazing Thailand Tourism Year 2018 will be launched this month and will focus on local experiences involving gastronomy and food. This year, Bangkok was awarded by CNN with a top rating for the best street food all over the world. This is the second straight year that Bangkok won the award.

Last year, the total income of Thailand that was generatedfrom gastronomy tourism was 329 billion Baht or 20% of the total tourism income of Thailand. The highest tourism income was generated from accommodations (29%) with shopping and souvenirs as a close second (24%). The top 5 markets for gastronomy tourism include China, Russia, Britain, Malaysia and the United States.

Last year, Chinese tourists spent 83.3 billion Baht on food, a 19% increase from 2015. In 2016, Russians contributed 20.8 billion Baht to food tourism up by 32% from the previous year. British spending on food amounted to 18.4 billion Baht, a 10% increase. Malaysian visitors spent 16.1 billion Baht, up by 7% while American tourists spent 13.9 billion Baht, an 18% increase.

Business and leisure travellers at Sathorn Hotel can start their day at The Hourglass with a hearty breakfast. Light lunch is also served as well as a sumptuous dinner that you can share with your friends and colleagues. You can end the day with a cocktail or two while you enjoy the gorgeous view of Lumpini Park that is right across the hotel.

Christchurch Central’s All Wood Alpine Hut Is Definitely Turning Heads

Christchurch Central’s All Wood Alpine Hut Is Definitely Turning Heads

Finally, some variance creeps into the suburban plains of Christchurch. An architectural designer, Mitchell Coll, has worked along with his partner Amy Douglas to build a completely new type of house in the centre of Christchurch, and their house is turning heads left, right and centre. They’ve reportedly been looking for a place to set up their base camp for quite a while, and have finally found a 300 square metre site. Coll was finally able to employ home builders in Christchurch to build his 74 square metre dream home, and he had enough space for another one. He’s looking to lease out this second oneand make a monthly income off of it. All in all, this new home design in Christchurch is a wonderful addition to the much-renowned Madras Street running from the North to the South of Christchurch.

His inspiration for this particular building came from his various trips to the mountains, where he garnered countless memories of huts built for the hunters, skiers and lumberjacks. He recalls some early memories that he had with his family members in South Canterbury where they would go up into the mountains and stay for a few days in huts like these. What he appreciates about these huts and houses is their durability and resistance. Following this trend, Coll here used a special type of steel beam, known as weathering steel, which actually gets stronger over time and gives the house a more rustic feel.

For the living room of the house, he has constructed it under the staircase leading to the upper floors and has furnished a wall with a painting of palm trees to give the room a more homely feel. This homely feeling is actually translated to the rooms upstairs too. Using the help of home builders in Christchurch, he was able to add elements of “brutalism and functionalism” to the various parts of his house, something he learnt as the style of home design in Christchurch that was widely accepted. He has also installed big see through windows on the roof to allow for natural to sunlight into the bedrooms upstairs. One thing to note about the choice of wood in this house is that it imparts a warmth both mentally and physically to the people who are in the house and this makes this house all the more lovable.
