Famous landmarks in Thailand include places like the Grand Palace which is located in Bangkok, Phi Phi Island, Wat Phra Kaew, Wat Arun, Khao Yai National Park, Ko Pha Ngan, Jim Thompson house, Wat Saket and Wat Ched Luang.

Some famous people in Thailand include Thai actress Pachrapa Chaichua, famous Thai martial artist Tony Jaa who appeared on fast and furious 7 or mostly known in Thailand as Jaa Phanom, King Vajiralong korn who had just gotten crowned king this year, Thai-american rapper,singer,songwriter,model and actress Nickhun who is in a South korean boy band called 2PM, New South korean girl group member Lalalisa Manoban or commenly known as Lisa, and lastly another South korean boy band member Kunpimook Bhuwakul or commenly know as BamBam who is in a South Korean boy band named GOT7 which was formed by JYP Entertainment.

In Thailand the Queen and the Kings birthday is basically mothers and fathers day, Visakha Puja Day is the most important Buddhist holiday in the Thailand calender, It is held around the month of May or Vesals based on the lunar calendar.

Facts about South Korea

Here are some facts about South Korea! 

1. The name “Korea” comes from Goryeo, which was the name given to the dynasty established by General Wang Geon in AD 918. Goryeo means high and clear. Some poetic interpretations of the name Korea are Land of High Mountains and Sparkling Streams and Land of the Morning Calm.

2. Most restaurants, including McDonald’s, will deliver food straight to homes in South Korea.

3. In Korea, babies are considered one year old at birth.

4. When a Korean’s name is written in red ink, this indicates that that person is about to die or is already dead.

5.  Along with Tokyo residents, Seoul get the least amount of sleep of any residents of major cities in the world, just fewer than 6 hours a night.

6. Korean high school students have 16 hours school day.

Taxis in South Korea are color coded according to the level of service offered. A gray or white taxi is a basic car with a qualified but potentially inexperienced driver, while the black cabs are luxury cars with experienced drivers.

8. Instead of air heaters, Koreans have heated floors called Ondol (warm stone) the heat is passed in pipes under the floor. I
n South Korea, more than 90% of the houses have ondol, and people eat, sleep, and watch TV on the warm floor.

9. South Korean martial art taekwondo is the country’s most famous sport. It literally means “the way of the fist and foot.” It most likely started around 2,000 years ago when a Korean warrior developed a style of fighting that used bare hands and feet instead of weapons. It is practiced worldwide today and became an official Olympic sport in 2002. It is the only Olympic sport that has originated in South Korea.

The Davis Tennis Arena Match

 Last week on Friday the 7th room 18, 16 and half of 17 went to watch the Denis ASB Tennis which was Korea vs New Zealand, the match was located in Auckland city! 
Everyone was so excited. It took a long time to get there and even some of us slept! Once we got there we had to run out of the bus because we were still in the middle of the road.  We all had to get into 2 lines, me and Suzy were so excited to see the match.

Everyone got settled in their seats and waited for the game to start. Then it started pour with rain and we were all sad, the rain covering the court so we had to wait for a long time.

My favourite thing to do is listen to K-pop and watch Korean Drama, as you can tell my favourite country is Korea. My nationality is Tongan and I have 2 older brother's I live with parents and my grandpa.

When I grow I want to travel to other countries and see different kind of traditions, and also learn new languages and make new friends.

I love coming to school to learn new stuff, the area that I'm mostly not comfortable with is maths. I also love coming to school to play with all my friends. 

-Thank you.
