Valentine Bombs and Famous Thais

Hopefully everyone reading this had a happy Valentine's Day, or at least a nice Tuesday this week.  I know the citizens and any travelers by car rental in Bangkok, Thailand had one to remember, and not in a good way.  Three explosions went off in Bangkok Tuesday afternoon, injuring six and mutilating the legs of the bomber.  The UK embassy has issued a travel warning and 14 countries have since followed suit.

Though the country's security systems have been quite rattled over the events they don't appear to be part of a greater plot or of any danger to tourists in the country.  Still, it is better to keep these events in mind and plan accordingly if you have a reservation for a car rental in Bangkok in the near future.

Aside from the minor attack this week, Thailand has a lot to be proud of and this is evidenced in the amazing accomplishments of it's population.  Thailand has evolved as a country in recent years, stepping onto the world's stage in the areas of fashion, art, architecture, and social medicine.  Take a look at the amazing accomplishments of the country's top 40 Internationally Acclaimed Thais.

Among these outstanding individuals are Mechai Viravaidya, a man who single-handedly achieved more progress in social development and education than many government administrations; Sumet Jumsai, an architect boldly influencing the landscape of Thailand, and Nunthirat 'Koi' Suwannagate, a Thai fashion designer featured on the pages of Vogue, W, Elle and Harper's Bazaar.

Travel advisories for Thailand are sure to be lifted soon so there's no harm in reading travel reviews and beginning early planning for your next tour by car hire in Thailand.
