* Thai cave rescue - the unbelievable operation that saved a football team and its coach. *
* Luang Cave, in Chiang Rai, is to be turned into a Living Museum to show how the rescue operation unfolded. *

Tham Luang Cave is a shrine to Jao Mae Nang Non, a mythical princess whose spirit is said to live there.

The wild boar ( Mu pa) academy football team (aged 11 to 16 years) and their coach became trapped in the Tham Luang Nang Non cave in the northern Chiang Rai Province, on 23rd June 2018, following heavy rainfall in the outside mountain area.
They were eventually discovered on a rock ledge nearly 5 km inside the cave, by two British divers 10 days later.
"How many of you are there? 13 ?   Brilliant". A slogan at the nearby Prasitsart School in Mae Sai (where six of the boys attended) read: "You never know when you will need your English".

They were finally rescued in groups over a three day period between 8th to 10th July 2018 inclusive The whole rescue operation involved a large number of local Thai and international rescue personal, but sadly one local Thai hero from the Thai Navy Seals died in the rescue operation.

Phu Wiang Dinosaur Museum

Phu Wiang Dinosaur Museum is located in Tambon Nai Mueang, Amphoe Wiang Kao, (80 kms west of Khon Kaen). The museum is part of the Phu Wiang Dinosaur Fossil Study and Research Centre.

The first dinosaur discovery in Thailand was in 1976. A piece of bone was found on a streambed, Huai Pratu Tima, which was later identified as a distal part of left femur of a sauropod dinosaur (a large plant-eating dinosaur walking with 4 legs with long neck and long tail).

Floating football pitch at Ko Panyi, Phang Nga Bay

At Panyee island, part of Thailand's picturesque Phanga Nga Bay, there is an innovative and highly unusual football pitch. Nestled next to the largely Muslim island's ferry pier and floating village, is a floating football pitch measuring 16 by 25 metres.

The island has long had a reputation for football-obsessed inhabitants who have refused to let something as inconvenient as a complete lack of flat surfaces hold them back from practising the "Beautiful Game".
