Just A Wally Hanging Out On Pattaya Beach

Thailand has many attractions. For example there are many, many temple. Oh and don't forget the Thai people. They are very friendly and they always smile alot to help foreigners to their country.

This first paragraph is (C) Thailand Lonely Planet and I take no responsibility for any errors in the paragraph or any misunderstandings that may arise.

Back in the real world, you know, the one where people had to cancel flights and the AFF Cup had to be moved because some friendly, smiling protesters had closed the airport, the one where fixtures are rearranged with gay abandon and where new cups are introduced willy nilly, comes this delightful tale of one man getting free publicity for his travel agency.

The Thai Premier League (TPL) is becoming increasingly popular not only in Thailand but also in Asean countries, if one were to go by the number of tourists, who have booked their trips to watch local football matches .

"I was contacted by tour agencies in Malaysia and Indonesia to organise tours to watch TPL matches. They wanted to see the management of TPL teams, they also wanted to know how they organise fan clubs as well as operate merchandising stores," Chatree Tangthienkul, managing director of World Planet International tour operator, said.

Chatree said that the tour agencies had told him that the TPL is very popular in their countries. "The people were amazed by the success of the local league and how the stadiums were packed with home enthusiasts."

He proposed tour programmes to leading clubs such as Muangthong United, Nong Chok United and politician Newin Chidchob's Buriram PEA, which he thought are big clubs, well organised and worth visiting by foreigners.
