In Thailand News…. A round up of some of this week’s news and articles related to Thailand.

Thailand’s Ariya Jutanugarn fired a career-best nine-under 63 to take a three-shot lead after the third round of the LPGA Yokohama Tire Classic.

A British grandad who is facing a manslaughter charge  in Thailand claims he has been beaten, robbed and sexually abused behind bars

Bangkok’s historic and busy Chinatown looks set to change as the developers move in.

A belated congratulations to Leicester City who tour Thailand this summer with strict instructions to behave themselves after last year’s scandal.

Congratulations also to Middlesborough who got promotion to the premier league yesterday and worth a bet for next year’s title at 1000-1 ???

Motorsport news Buriram,  Sarath Kumar will sit out of the remainder of the Asia Road Racing Championship weekend in Thailand.

Another reason to choose organic produce as Pesticides in Fruit and Veg were found to at toxic levels in over half of samples tested:”The results were announced by the Thai- Pesticide Alert Network (Thai-PAN), which tested 138 samples of popular fruits and vegetables in Greater Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Ubon Ratchathani during March 16-18.”

Interesting if suprising article from the BBC last week about how ” bangkok shouldnt be good for expats but it is “. So how good must Buriram be with it’s low cost of living and great selection of restaurants and bars?

We had an email this week from a reader with a very specific question, can anyone answer it?

“I frequently enjoy reading Buiram Times News. I find there is much information that can be passed onto any Farang who lives and or has interest in Buriram.
I was hoping to find out if sometime in the near future an international school might be in the works? One that offers British or a Western style curriculum.

I am aware of the Marie Annisorn School which is considered Burirams inter school. What are you thoughts? ”
