Subject: G.4) Where can I get the latest news from Thailand?

Some of the latest news in Thai language from Thai News Agency are available for anonymous FTP from ftp.cs.washington.edu (a.k.a. june) in the directory /pub/thaisys/thainews. To read these news, follow the instructions provided in a README file in that directory.

A raw news archive is available at:
ftp://ftp.nectec.or.th/pub/news

Use InfoZIP's unzip5.0p1 (or later) with a command line switch -a to unpack on non-MSDOS platforms or use PKWARE Inc's PKUNZIP 2.04g (or later) to unpack on MSDOS.

News from the Thai News Agency, Mass Communications Organization of Thailand, is provided as a courtesy service from SysOp of the Datanet BBS in Bangkok, Khun Samart Sririangkana (samart@nwg.nectec.or.th).

Besides, news in English is also occasionally posted to soc.culture.thai by volunteer netters in Thailand.

Alternatively, news related to Thailand can be found in the newsgroups clari.news.international.gov and bit.listserv.seasia-l (or the SEASIA-L mailing list)

Aktuelle Ergänzung vom Webmaster:

Achtung: die meisten Feiertage richten sich nach dem Mondkalender! D. h. sie fallen nicht jedes Jahr auf das gleiche Datum!
Einige Feiertage, die eigentlich auf einen Wochenend-Tag fallen, werden auf den darauf folgenden Montag verschoben (s. obige Liste: "substitution for ...").
