We don't focus that much on crime, accidents, political issues etc. as most other regional news recourses cover these topics.

We are updating the news regularly, so check back regularly to stay updated!

Central Festival Grand Opening
Central Festival Opening

Tomorrow, March 29, it ist time for the grand opening of Central Festival shopping mall in Chaweng, Koh Samui.

This is by far the largest shopping mall on the island, but the building is not that tall, so it will probably blend in rather well in the tropical environment.
