    Hi Anatta

    He wishes! Instead, he spends much of his time on these forums! We shot altogether about 25 interviews last Sunday. It was fun. But we had no script, no nothing, just made it all up as we went along..... So, anyone got the email for the Discovery Channel recruiting director!?

    Watched a couple of these... made me chuckle.
    They are so contrived and awkward.

    Never the less, am sure most of Bangkok is pretty safe for western tourists.

    Oh don't be mean!

    I thought the interviewer had star potential.

    The bits of Bangkok that aren't safe are called roads. They're terrible. Unfortunately they are even worse in Chiang Mai.

    PaulV,

    That intereviewer happens to have throngs of fans in this site. Be careful na!! And I agree with BillK.

    Never approach a bull from the front, a horse from the rear, or an idiot from any direction.

    Look, I'm not actually going to go so far as turn for him but I think he did a great job and I'm sure it will help convince people that Thailand is the place.

    BTW: Paul V, relax, we're just having fun and I'm sure no one really took offence.

    This Farang presenter guy has had his big mugshot face plastered on our screens before in his once stupendous (not!) acting career!

    I think there were a few different interviewers on the youtube clips?

    Am sure he is a lovely fellow... just the context is funny I suppose - not in a mean way.
    Asking tourists "would you like to take this opportunity to give a message to those at home, maybe watching, about the safety of Bangkok...."

    Am certain he is a very friendly, lovely presenter, I guess the context just made me chuckle.

    Yeah, the Thai guy interviewing is called Tommy, he went to school in Canada. He works in the e-marketing dept for TAT. The Japanese guy is Kentaro, he's in charge of promoting Thailand to the Japanese market.

    Good to see they are using the "Modern approach" and utilising youtube to get the message out etc.

    Singapore keeps travel advisory on Thailand

    Singapore (Agencies) - Foreign Minister George Yeo of said on Sunday has said he expects the period of instability in Thailand to last a while longer, and the Singapore travel advisory will stay in effect.

    His comments came as the government lifted the state of emergency in Bangkok.

    Speaking on the sidelines of a community event, Mr Yeo said the travel advisory to the Thai capital remains. Earlier this month, Singapore’s Foreign Ministry had advised Singaporeans who do not have a pressing need to go to Bangkok to postpone their travel plans to a later date.

    Mr Yeo said, "I do not think the situation in Thailand has fully stabilised yet, because this is only an interim government, and parliament will have to nominate a new prime minister. There will have to be compromises, there could be further struggles, we do not know.

    "(The Ministry of Foreign Affairs) will continue to evaluate the situation to see whether there is a need for us to amend our advisory, but I expect this period of instability to last a while longer."
