CYBER BUFFET: The homepage for Thailand's largest Internet service is a font of useful information. Besides listing hotels and restaurants, the "Thai Yellow Pages" offers a Bangkok traffic page, with webcam views of road conditions around the city. Its golfing section comes with a handicap calculator plus links to local golf-course websites, while Mednet guides you to the closest health-care facility. Or dip into Intercast to check out local entertainment news.
THAI STUDENTS ONLINE
NO KIDDING: This clever collection of homepages by students (and teachers) from around Thailand is not just for kids. The movie page, for instance, provides a useful listing of showtimes and reviews for films in Bangkok and beyond, plus links to students' websites on the controversial plan to film the Alex Garland novel, The Beach, on Phi Phi Island. Another website discusses the indelible mark left on Thailand by the filming of two James Bond flicks. Good for tourist info, too.
