National Museum staff get a refresher course

Bangkok Airways will resume its Phuket to U-Tapao and Samui to U-Tapao routes. Bangkok Airways

The National Museum Bangkok recently organised short training sessions for staff and volunteers so that they are ready to welcome back visitors following the country's reopening last month.

The Covid-19 pandemic forced the National Museum Bangkok to temporarily close. During the closure, the museum made updates and new permanent exhibitions. Therefore, it is paramount to educate staff about the latest progress of the museum so they can guide visitors properly.

Visitors can now visit the National Museum Bangkok from Wednesday to Sunday, 8.30am to 4.30pm. The entrance fee is 30 baht for Thais and 200 baht for foreigners.

ORI9IN farm is a joint venture between Banyan Tree Group and chef-turned-sustainable farmer of The Boutique Farmers James Noble, who is established as a reputable grower. A partnership grounded on a passion for a sustainable future through food, this enterprise leverages the post-Covid quest for better health and wellbeing, welcoming visitors to enjoy fresh farm produce and nature in a safe socially-distanced setting of 500 rai.

This venture of agro-tourism aims to lead the curve in sustainable retained farming and cooperatives for living and eating well. ORI9IN is the only retained farming operation globally that partners with a network of top restaurants and hotels, focusing on import substitution and reducing carbon footprint without sacrificing flavour.

James Noble is personally behind these tantalising dishes using quality products locally sourced by his wife May. Meals served at Waiting For May are available for dine-in at the restaurant, or for takeaway for a picnic on the farmland.
