Tokyo Tatemono Participates in Sukhumvit 25 Office Building Development
Tokyo Tatemono, a Japanese construction company, announced on April 10, 2023 that it will participate in an office building development project in central Bangkok and construct a new commercial building.
The new commercial building will consist of offices and some commercial areas. It will be a medium-sized office building with 7 floors above ground and 2 floors below ground, with a total floor area of approximately 9,500 square meters.
This new commercial building is a project handled by WHAKW Alliance, a joint venture between WHA, a major logistics facility developer in Thailand, and KW Capital, a commercial real estate investment company. Construction is scheduled to be completed in July 2023.
Tokyo Tatemono started business in Thailand in 2018 and has worked on three condominium projects in Bangkok, but this is the first time that it has participated in an office building development in Thailand.
Nok Air to end flights between Bangkok and Mae Hong Son
Nok Air flights between Bangkok and Mae Hong Son Airport will cease on April 19, 2023. Nok Air is the only airline that operates a flight between Bangkok and Mae Hong Son, so when this flight is discontinued, Mae Hong Son will only be accessible by land.
Mae Hong Son is home to the backpacker town of Pai, and Nok Air's Bangkok-Mae Hong Son flight was a hit with some travelers.
In response to this situation, Nok Air, which used to use a Q400 aircraft (80-seat turboprop aircraft) for this route, has replaced it with a Boeing 787-800 jet (189-seat) to increase accommodate passengers. Ultimately, however, the decision was made to scrap the route as there was not enough demand to fill all 189 seats, while flights with 80 seats were unprofitable.
Most tourists traveling to Pai take a minivan from Chiang Mai. This minivan is much cheaper than a plane, but the travel time takes travelers 2-3 hours, and the winding and steep mountain roads present an obstacle for travelers to get to Pai.
