Phuket Seeking To Upgrade Five More International Airports

A few years ago, the answer the demand for more hotel rooms in Phuket, many developers opened accommodations in the island including which is currently one of the most booked. To further improve its tourism industry, Phuket is planning to upgrade more international airports around the resort island.

Next week is one of the most anticipated events in Phuket known as the Third Global Aviation Cooperation Symposium to be attended by members of ICAO or International Civil Aviation Organisation. It serves as a gathering for those who are in the aviation department because they will tackle the most pressing issues in the aviation of Thailand. Authorities who will be coming to the event are proposing to request the United Nation agency to grant the endorsement of five additional airports in Phuket serving international routes.

During the same event in Phuket, local authorities want to ask for the recognition from the International Civil Aviation Organisation so that the UdonThani airport will be promoted as the latest international airport in the country.

The symposium will last for three days starting on July 22 and will end on July 24. The reason why the event was organized is partly due to the potential that was seen by ICAO with regards to the aviation sector of Thailand. This piece of information was disclosed by Chula Sukmanop, the current chief of the CAAT or Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand.

More tourists are recorded to have visited which means many are planning to visit Phuket in the coming months. Mr. Chula wanted to make sure that they are complying with the international standards for aviation in order to avoid being red flagged for the second time.

Tokyo Fears Hotel Shortage Over 2020 Olympics

It is given that the world is replete with a multitude of world-class hotels such as the Novotel in Phuket ( and a whole lot more. If only these hotel could flock to the Japanese capital, then most likely Tokyo would no longer have any problem when it hosts the most prestigious international sports event next year.

In line with the conduct of 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, Japan, it is feared that the Japanese capital would experience a shortage in the number of hotels which could accommodate the massive number of participants who will be flocking to the city.

Despite the increase of the number of infrastructures constructed in Tokyo these past few years, it is estimated that an additional 14,000 rooms would still be needed as shown by a research study.

An Offshore Solution

In order to answer this problem, the Japanese government is opening itself to the possibility of putting up giant ships which will be docked off in Tokyo and Yokohama throughout the conduct of the Olympics.

A lot of travel agencies have already agreed to the idea such as JTB which has already chartered the Sun Princess for the Olympic period. In addition, the agency is offering packages that combine rooms but they come a bit pricey.

The Solution Comes at a Price

The agency has confided that it is confident of the demand as hotel shortages would be very inevitable. For the record, almost two thousand dollars would be spent in a room with a balcony for two nights (with a football ticket), while almost seven dollars would be spent on a 50-square meter suite for two nights (with a baseball ticket).

Aside from the above cruise ship, Tokyo and Chiba prefecture are also looking for other possible cruise ships. It could be remembered that Japan has banned the use of hotel rooms without windows, but just last year, they have allowed the use of windowless cabins for major events.

Nevertheless, despite their offshore solution, it still remains unclear whether the shortage of hotels ( would be compensated by the ships. Hence, Tokyo plans to open new additional terminals as the Olympic games near.

Importance Of Sending A Child To An International School In Bangkok Thailand

The growing number of international schools in a certain region is a good sign that the country is trying its best to provide better school options for its locals. However, this also poses a challenge for parents who want to enrol their children to the best international school in their country. Every parent only wants to give the best for their children, including the school where their children should attend.

What are the things that make an international school in Bangkok Thailand popular among parents and local students? Everyone agrees that going to an international school can make a student stand out. The quality of education that international schools provide is much better than most schools in Thailand. Also, their fees are more expensive than most schools. This should not be surprising, considering the many benefits and advantages that come along with it.

Some of the Things that Make Parents Choose International Schools

  1. Small Class Size

Public schools tend to have a huge number of students in a class. This makes it impossible for teachers to monitor everyone in the class and see if they are still listening. The teacher may not be able to monitor when a student is already doing something that is not related to the discussion.

The international schools usually have small class size. Teachers can monitor the students better if the number of students in each class is considerably small. The teacher can easily point out the ones who are listening and those who do not. She/he can call the attention of those students who are not listening and make them focus.

  1. Individual Attention

The teacher can gain a better understanding of the personality of each student if the class is small. She/he can give individual attention to each student and point out the strong and weak points of each student. The teacher may also suggest some things that can help the student improve his/her grade or skills.

  1. Regular Meetings of Parents and Teachers

The international schools usually conduct parent-teacher meetings on a regular basis. During the meeting, teachers give updates on the progress of the children and may even offer some pointers that can help parents assist their children in their home works.

Choosing an international school in Bangkok Thailand may be daunting for some parents, but they need to do it if they want to give their children the high-quality education they deserve.
