    Staying in Bangkok

    You will feel safe is most areas of Bangkok. It is a very safe city. I like the Siam area as they have many malls and an aquarium for kids and tons of other activities for families. Some of the hotels in that area are the Intercontinental, Renaissance, Courtyard Marriott, Holiday Inn and more.
  2. "The case stems from Supap Kirtsaeng’s college experience. A native of Thailand, Kirtsaeng came to the U.S. in 1997 to study at Cornell University. When he discovered that his textbooks, produced by Wiley, were substantially cheaper to buy in Thailand than they were in Ithaca, N.Y., he rallied his Thai relatives to buy the books and ship them to him in the U.S. He then sold them on eBay, making upwards of $1.2 million, according to court documents.Wiley, which admitted that it charged less for books sold abroad than it did in the U.S., sued him for copyright infringement. Kirtsaeng countered with the first-sale doctrine." http://www.marketwatch.com/story/your-right-to-resell-your-own-stuff-is-in-peril-2012-10-04?link=MW_popular Fascinating article and case.
